Mild, misty, foggy....ahhhh!  I love mornings like this. It's like a little gift. And for my last day before I return to work! Nothing much on tap for today. Church, then home.  A great ending to a some what nice week off. Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you have a great Sunday.

Hello!  How has your day been? It's lovely here today. Nice and warm.  Unfortunately, I'm stuck inside with a bit of sickness. Luckily I have my big stitching project to keep me company. cough, cough, cough, stitch, stitch, stitch...I am enjoying this stitching project, but I'm not sure how I'll feel about it as the days and weeks ( and months) go by. I can always lay it aside and work on something else.

I'm getting itchy to get out in the garden. I have random things blooming. A spot of hyacinths are blooming in the woods from a bulb that apparently dropped unknowingly years ago.   A few daffodils blooming and some pretty little white blooms whose name escapes me just now. It's so nice to have a little bouquet of spring time in the house! Won't be long before it will be the norm!

I am finishing my Winter Break.  I can't believe I've been sick the whole time.  Drats!  Confession... I still did exactly what I had planned on doing - working on Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow while watching tons of TV. I just did it while feeling puny.

Time to get back to it! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I've been looking forward to this weekend and now it's finally here! We kicked it off in a wonderful way-dinner with friends.  It was a day- late Valentine's dinner.  We threw all diets aside and enjoyed steak (for the guys) and Salmon (for us girls), humongous baked potatoes, green beans from my friend's summer garden, and salad. To finish it off we had a delicious homemade pound cake (I had a piece for breakfast, apparently I'm still throwing the diet aside:)).

I'm starting my Winter Break and will have all next week off.  Looks like we're going to have a fairly nice week weather-wise, but  I don't plan on getting out much. I am stitching a new project and want to get a good bit done, so mostly I'll be sitting in my chair watching TV and stitching.  Not a bad way to spend my time off! I would like to do a bit of a clean up in the garden. Still have leaves that need to be removed, honestly, never ending chore!

I am getting  excited about Spring. I can see some green emerging of the tulips I planted.  Not much, just a little poke-up. Our crazy weather making them confused...should we come, should we stay buried? High's in the low 40's today, but later this week we'll be almost 70.

I hope you're having a lovely Saturday! Thanks so much for stopping by.

Winter is quietly passing around here. Cold interspersed with Spring-like warmth is really the norm. Tomorrow a cold rain is promised. I really wish it was today because I'm home and it would be a lovely evening to pass in front of the fire with some stitching and my yummy salmon dinner that my wonderful dh is in the kitchen cooking for me.  Tomorrow I'll have to do some driving and visiting...never fun to do in the rain.

I have a winter cross stitch that I am enjoying. I have lost some of the special order floss and will have to reorder before I can finish. I still have a ways to go so I'll work on other areas until I just have to have it.  I have been waiting impatiently for the 40ct fabric that I ordered for my big project.  I am already behind and I haven't even started yet! I am supposed to do one small block a month.  The small blocks are massive though and will be a real race to actually finish some of them in a month.  All I need to get started is the fabric. Hopefully I'll get it soon.

I hope you are having a lovely Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
