It's night time.....

I love my digital camera.
That's the moon outside my back door. It's clear, decently warm, nice & quiet around my neighborhood. I love it!

I have been working on my neice's baby to be's quilt. I took pictures of it, but they wouldn't upload, so I took a picture of the moon.

Hopefully, I will get the items I need tomorrow to finish the quilt and then I will try another picture to share. In the meantime, enjoy the moon!

Thursday, July 27, 2006 I'm a little slow...

I started to come in here early this morning to post a blog and it is now 1:25 PM (Pacific Standard Time). I just now figured out how to post another blog. AARRGGHH!!! Main thing is I got in here!

The picture above is my newest project d'obsession. Since I am currently looking for gainful employment, I have a little more time on my hands than I was previously used to. I really don't want to go stir crazy, so I took up cross stitching again. (After..oh..ten years or so) And now I am obsessed. I suppose there are worse things to be obsessed with.

This is called Earth Goddess. It is from a book I have, called Magical Cross Stitch, by D&C (Dave and Charles)

My middle daughter came and visited yesterday afternoon. She was bored. That's why she came. She drove twenty miles to see me because she was bored. Hmmm...I guess that is what moms are for. We are here to unbore the bored. I am actually glad she thought of me to visit. We got to talking about things she wants to do, classes she needs to take, etc, etc. I ended up giving her my old computer that I was going to "clean" up. Her boyfriend lives, breathes, eats, sleeps computers...he can "clean" it up. Hopefully , this will give her the enthusiasm to take those classes and do good. She's 20 and needs to get on with her education.

Another day in Paradise

Well, another new beginning. I love new beginnings. I have been reading other blogs and think to myself, I should do that. And then my self kicks in and says, why do you want to tell every one what is going on in your life? Well, it's not so much telling everyone is more joining a group of people who have something in common and getting feedback and learning from others! So, please, feedback, feedback, feedback!

I am on a learning curve here, so it will take me a while to get this blog set up the way it should be and comfy for you all to come and visit. I have a lot of pics I want to share. Especially the ones of my little dog Tootsie, (that;'s Tootsie up on the top) who is my companion in all that I do. She sits on my lap when I stitch, follows me from room to room as I do my chores, goes kayaking with me and chastises me when I've gone out of the house to do chores and left her behind.

Well, that is it for now. I'm going to go play with my new toy and figure out all the fun stuff I can do! Hope to hear from you!
