On Sunday morning I got up early to head down the road to Denton Farm Park to have breakfast with Rich.
It was the weekend of the annual Military truck rally.
Rich got home by noon and since we had a big breakfast we went out for an hour long hike.
The hike seemed hard and I put it down to not being acclimated to hot weather yet.
There will be no getting used to the warm weather yet, it is supposed to be below freezing tonight. I hope that we don't get a hard freeze that will damage all the trees and plants.
Wishing you all a good week! Thanks for the kind comments and stopping by.

I hope that you are enjoying some wonderful spring weather. It has been a gorgeous weekend here in North Carolina.
Yesterday day the weather was perfect for the sampler guild's annual road trip. This year we headed to Mordecai Park in Raliegh, NC.
During the tour we got to see some samplers and other textiles. The Mordecai family also had a girls school in Warrenton, NC. And the samplers that we saw were probably stitched there.
After the park tour we hopped on the trolley for a tour of downtown Raliegh.
If I lived nearby I would definitely take some of the fabulous jewelry making classes that they offer.
Here is a peek inside the shop.
What a great day to discover and learn about Raliegh. I need to spend some more time here.
Thanks for traveling along on the road trip with me!
I am heading out to get my weekend errands done!

I think that one of Murphy's laws is that the minute you pick up your keys to leave the house it starts to rain harder. At least that is how this Monday has started. The other tech has called out and we have no internet at work so everything is at a complete standstill. May I have a Do Over?
I hope that your week is starting off better than mine. How was your weekend? Saturday was a beautiful day. Rich went down to Charlotte for the Auto Fair and I ran errands, packed up some books and did some cooking.
Sunday was not as pretty as the front was coming in. Binx was cold.
Rich and I took a short hike. There were some signs of spring...
This rain is really going to make the leaves pop. It always amazes me how the world looks different every day this time of year.
I got a little more stitching done on Nancy.
Here's hoping that the rest of the week is good!

Who is back you ask?
Rich is a funny guy!
I have made a little progress on Nancy.
It has been in the mid 80's here the last 2 days... Crazy weather!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you are having a great week!

Here is my TUSAL for today.
Miss Nancy has been keeping me occupied this weekend.
It was very windy here today. The power went out for an hour or 2 this afternoon. The upcoming week is going to be warmer. I am looking forward to some milder temps. I hope to get some stitching done this week too.
Have a restful Sunday evening! Thanks for stopping by.

Wow, we made it to Saturday. Every Thursday seems like it should be Friday to me. I hate that feeling. It could be that it was a little slow at work this week. Does anyone else feel that way?
I tried stitching on Beggar's Night one night this week but I ended up ripping everything out. I have had some bad headaches, I think it is allergies. I shouldn't try to stitch when I have a headache.
I worked a little extra everyday this week so that I could leave work early and go to visit Miranda on Friday afternoon.
It was a wonderful afternoon. Thanks Miranda!
I started this little marking sampler last night. Her name is Nancy Jhonson by Threads Of Gold.
I am stitching her on 30ct "linen" linen from Weeks Dye Works with the charted DMC colors. Nancy is an NC girl. Sorry for the poor photo. It is a gloomy rainy day. It would be perfect to stay home and stitch. I am off to my Saturday job, it is only 9 to 3 and then I hope to go home and stitch. Maybe I will try to go grocery shopping first. I hope that your Saturday will be more exciting than mine.
