Laying Low

Hello Friends.
I hope that you are having a great weekend and are keeping cool. I hope that everyone in the mid-Atlantic area will have power and AC soon. It is probably about 100 here. Hopefully by Wednesday it will break. We really need some rain.
I have not had any time to stitch during the week. Rich got home Tuesday night. I had exercise class a couple of nights and went out to eat on Friday night.
I finished the By The Bay SAL last night.

It really was fun to stitch. It was so generous of Donna to offer this design. I will try and get it into the frame soon.
Yesterday I went to this class..

What a great teacher! It was awesome. I am so lucky to have this studio nearby with a great group of teachers. All the special events they hold are wonderful.

These are some of the other participants.
On the work front my last day was Friday with the one job an then Monday I will start with the new company that has taken over the Behavioral Health services in the county. I have a huge amount of work to do since I need to enter all of my 600 patients back into the medication assistance tracking program that we use. At least I have a job and there is OT available for me to get caught up.
Thanks for all your kind words and support during my uncertainty leading up to the job. I know a month from now things will be back to normal.
Friday the pharmacy was closed since they were changing out the computers. Afterwards my pharmacist to the other tech and me out to dinner. We had a lovely time at a local Japanese steakhouse.
Rich and I usually have 4th of July week off but he is very busy at work and since my job just changed we will be staying in town. I am a little disappointed. I am ready for a road-trip. I am starting to get antsy about booking our vacation the first week of October. I am looking forward to going somewhere exciting :)
Well that is it from here. I am going to go stitch.
Keep cool my friends!

That's good to hear your work situation has worked out for you, Chris. And great that they're willing to pay OT, too!!

I love your little finish--it really is very pretty :) Hope you can manage to stay cool--we're frying up here in PA, too. Don't know when it's ever going to end!

Love your By the Bay piece -- so gorgeous! Good for you on the Zumba too. Good luck with all that OT coming. I know how you're feeling about vacation. We haven't had one in almost 2 years and I so want one!

Your SAL piece is very cute. Hope your new job is much less stressful.

Love your little finish! Such a cute stitch.
I'm glad you have a job, and that has worked out for you. Good luck getting caught up!
My husband is working on the 4th too. It's a bummer, because it's always fun. Hopefully you can catch a BBQ or something fun.
Have a good one.

That's so great that everything's working out on the job front ~ and the opportunity for some OT will be great to help pay for that trip when it comes too!!

Your SAL looks great, congrats on your finish!

Good to hear things are working out for you jobwise and that they will pay OT! I hear you about getting antsy for a trip...I need one now!! Love the By the Bay finish! It's the sweetest little design!! That Zumba class looked like fun and hard work!!

Oh it is so pretty Chris! I can't wait to see it in the frame. You go girl with that Zumba. Maybe if we hang out enough some of your motivation will rub off on me. :o)

How did I miss the job stuff? Maybe I'll break down and check into a Zumba DVD. Then I'll really break down if I use it. The Bay is gorgeous. Oval frame? Can't wait to see!
