Almost a month later...Yikes! Just when I thought I was doing better at updating this blog, I go and disappear for nearly a month! But there's a reason for that!
Last week I started a new job. I work 4 10 hr days, Tuesday thru Friday. And let me tell you..I'm exhausted! I wake up at 4:15 a.m. or so to take a shower. I start at 6 a.m. It's been years since I've had a job like this one. But having Mondays off makes it all worthwhile; not to mention more hours and a better paycheck. The downside is when I get home all I want to do is sit on the couch and do nothing...nothing like stitch or update this blog! In fact, it's 16 minutes past my bedtime right now. I get home at 5 p.m. and there's hardly any time to do anything like cook, wash dishes (I do dishes the old-fashioned way!), or read stitching blogs. We've been living off of microwave food, my daughter and I! I know it's not healthy but it sure is quick. Tonite, though, I went grocery shopping and bought food that'll have to be cooked!
This past weekend I finally picked up some stitching while watching the Pioneer Woman's last Food Network show on Saturday. I'll sure miss it! Anyway, here is what I THINK I was stitching!((O)) yawn, oh exuse me!!
I finished the last of my Halloween Sal-e (stitch alone) projects.
Sorry I lied!! Here's the last of my Halloween stitching! Sorry again! I guess I didn't take a pic. It's from Plum Street Samplers 'My Pretties', the welcome one with the raven.
A couple posts back I mentioned I was going to make Prickly Pear jelly and add a jar to my blogoversary giveaway. Well guess what? We got this crazy hail storm a couple weeks back and here's what I had left:
It has finally cooled down around here, to the point of having to use a blanket at night. But it's what I've been waiting for. I just don't do hot very well and you'd think I would because I'm a lifelong Arizonan. I'm just getting old!
Well I'm off to bed! Thanks for stopping by and listening to my blabbering! ZZZZZzzzzzz
