Good Morning Friends.
What a hectic week. I am not sure why really, Maybe as I write this I will figure it out. Thank you for all your comments and kind words. I have been trying to catch up with replying and viewing the other blogs and commenting but I think that I have failed and done a half-a**ed job.
I hope this week I will be better.
I have started this small as a gift for a friend. I can't show more because she has been reading my blog. We are getting together next Saturday and hopefully visiting the Burwell School in Hillsborough, NC. This was a female academy and Mary Todd Lincoln's seamstress, friend and benefactor is from there. It should be interesting. Pics to come!
I had a good mail week. Some new stash came. There are so many temptations right now. Have you seen the new BBD Halloween designs? I still want to get the new Loose Feathers Design. Maybe Rich will tell me he hit the lottery this week?!! A girl can dream :)
Then I also received my new issue of AFA magazine. Total eye candy. I usually look through the issue a couple of times, read any articles that interest me and then cut out the Huber and Finkle adds to put in my sampler scrap book.
I used to work part time in the office I just moved from. Lots of times I was bored so I would cut out small pics from this magazine. It may have been a painting, a pic of a needlework chest, whatever struck my fancy. Then I would leave it somewhere in the office...on the cork board, taped to the phone, under the blotter... My way of messing with my co-workers :)
So back to my crazy week... I went to see The Help on Thursday night with some of my friends. The theater was filled with book group ladies. I had listened to the audio of this a couple of years ago and it is an excellent production read by 4 actors. If you haven't read the book I recommend the audio version. The movie was very good, if you are going take some Kleenex!
I worked Tuesday night and Saturday at the second job. The last couple of days it has rained here and cooled off some. It has actually been in the 60's at night. All I can think about is fall, the smell, walking thru fallen leaves, the colors... I am also thinking of the JCS ornament issue! Have you seen the cover?!! I can't wait.
My big news of the week is that Rich and I have booked our trip for our 20th anniversary and we will be going here...
I took this pic on the North Shore of Oahu when I was there for work in May 2009. This is the beach where the sea turtle were playing in the waves. I never thought I would see something like that. What a gift!
When I had signed up for this work assignment I was scheduled only to work in California but the schedule changed while I was in California and I ended up in Hawaii for 3 weeks. I had already booked Rich a trip to come see me in California so I couldn't have him come to HI too. Now I get the chance to share all those things I saw with him. I can't wait!
Well, I need to get going. I have to get some grocery shopping done then this afternoon Rich and I are meeting some friends to go see Cowboys & Aliens and I need to do some other errands while we are in town.
I hope that everyone has a great Sunday and that everyone that has kids going back to college or starting school the next couple of weeks has an easy transition.
