I only stitch on days that end in "y".

This week....

It's been a little busy around here getting caught up on stuff at home and other activities.

Our dishwasher died so we had to get another one. The installer was over an hour later than the 3 hour window they gave us...on a Friday night. Grrrrrr!'s here now and I'm spending less time hand washing dishes.

My bread machine also died. I thought there would be many to choose from this time of the year and inexpensive but I was wrong. It took me a while to find one and I paid a little more than I'd wanted to but I can now bake bread in the machine again. Tried it out yesterday and the house smelled so good!

I had a "hankering" for something pumpkin so made some pumpkin bread. You can tell I didn't spend much time in the kitchen during marching season...the boys have pretty much devoured the pumpkin bread, even the loaf I put in the freezer for later. I have all the ingredients here so I may bake another couple of loaves today.

I spent the best day Wednesday with my walking buddy. First we took our walk and the regrouped after our showers to go shopping in Pearland. Neither of us had a long list of things we had to do so we accomplished a little, had lunch, shopped some more, and then shared a piece of double Godive chocolate cheesecake before starting back for home. The weather was gorgeous too. What a fun day!

I finished another Little House Needleworks ornament called Frosty Flakes. I also started a Thanksgiving design by Sandra Cozzolino but already have lost interest in that one...there are so many other things I'd like to stitch (and I have one more Bridestree ornament I have to stitch for that sal to finish up for the year).

Today is my DS's 20th birthday although he won't be celebrating it at home. We'll have a celebration with him on Monday. Guess I should be preparing for that. lol!

Didn't realize you had a blog till I saw it mentioned on the Friday Blog Hop thread on the 123board ... love the finish' Which Bride's Tree ornament have you got left? I still need to stitch up an angel and a Santa for Nov/Dec. I have been doing mine in chronological order.

Riona, I just have to finish the Santa (last) Bridestree ornament then they'll all be stitched but not "finished". I've already started him and hope to have him finished by next week.
