*It's a bad start to the week when the necklace you associate with your grandma suddenly just breaks. Luckily, I noticed it and rescued the broken chain and medallion. I'd have been crushed if I had lost the medallion. The chain has held up to 20 years of daily wear and showers so I guess it was time.
*Why is it that when you are looking for something, you can't find one you like? Current dilemma...new purse. Everything nowadays looks large enough to carry my weekly groceries!
*How many calories do you burn off going to every Michael's store in search of DMC instead of hitting the gym like you're supposed to?
*How healthy can Avocado Ranch salad dressing be? Avocado = good source of fat. Ranch Dressing = ?!. I guess the fact the salad has bacon and ranch means I just ate an unhealthy meal. It was tasty though. I'll do better at dinner.
*Waking up at 1030am everyday for a week was luxurious. Waking up at 7am for work now is slightly torturous. 2 alarms and I can barely wake up! ZzzZzzzzzZzz
*I was told I am lucky I am single. I don't really feel that way though. Amazing how we want what others have. Married folks want to have space and be single. Single folks want to have someone to share their life with.
*I'm not sure a curvy body should wear spaghetti strap maxi dresses...at least not this one.
*I can't wait to get my new pedometer from Amazon. Time to (re)practice what I preach. 10,000 steps a day...here I come...eventually.
*Oh, and my new Roku! Thanks for all the recs and comments about it. That's on the Amazon order too.
*I forgot to order a phone ear thingie...what are those called? Nobody calls me until the minute I start driving! (Talking on a cellphone while driving is a ticketable offense here)
*I'm so happy to have working phone, internet and Tivo! And Stitchmate! If I didn't have to go to work, I'd never ever leave the house. EVER! Oh wait...10,000 steps. Dammit!
*46 more DMC to complete my collection. All the non-stitching people think I'm insane. I know you all get it. Will the next Michael's trip be a success to my collection? Love those 20% off coupons.
*If I concentrate on Mary Wigham, how much longer will it take me to finish??
As you can see, my brain's been buzzing.
Speaking of Mary, Here's what I've accomplished in a week. Not bad I suppose. Excuse the photo...it's nighttime and I snapped it quick.
I managed the light pink, black and dusty rose motifs along with 4 sets of initials. I made a small start on the burgundy one. I didn't think I would like that black one but I enjoyed stitching that one the most so far. The burgundy one seems fun too. I think I will stick with Mary through the weekend. Tomorrow, I am heading to a stitching event in Monterey (road trip!) with one of my stitching groups. They are doing this whole retreat extravaganza but I am just driving down for the day. I wonder how much stitching I will actually get done. There are three more motifs in this part (part 4). Can I do it in one more week? We're gonna find out.
Time to pack my stitching bag. Have a nice weekend!
Until next time...
