It is only Tuesday!

I was sure it was Wednesday when I woke up this morning. Yippee! I just got an extra day in the week.

A stitching update . . .

Gimme a B (and a little more border)!

We are two weeks into hurricane season and our first potential hurricane is being monitored in the Atlantic. This cannot be good for the oil spill situation.  All we can do is pray.  A hurricane that would push oil into the marshes, bayous, lakes and rivers would exponentially compound the environmental damage that is already taking place and would likely displace entire communities, many of the same communities that have already spent the last five years rebuilding their lives, homes and businesses from hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Now, time for a blast from the past . . .

Anybody having an 80s flashback yet?

DS got new shoes today and I am now looking forward to DH's reaction when he gets home. We had to go to the adult shoe section to find a size to fit - ACKKKK!  When did that happen??

BTW, DS is ecstatic to have made the blog twice in one day ; )


  1. I DO remember those! Wow...fashions DO come back.

  2. I love the shoes...my son now wears a 13.5 or 14...they are hard to find, especially in something a 16 year old thinks is okay to wear.

    My prayers continue to be with those on the shores...my mom winters in the panhandle of FL and the beach where she goes was so pristine and beautiful. My heart aches for the people and animals and land that is being destroyed!

  3. Wonderful Progress

    I live in Florida - I too am concerned about the oil. I hear many insurance companies are sending out letters that they will not cover oil damage -
    it apparently is not a natural occurence - Go figure
