Nothing much to say...

I haven't been around much lately. Feeling a bit blue I guess. My mojo has weakened. My baby turned 18 and DD is soon to be 21. (And don't think I haven't realized that is a major source of my blahs) Being home 24/7 is great but has it's pitfalls too. PT...it works and has its place but I'm looking forward to the 6 weeks being OVER!

On the stitching front - Northwind. And that's all. I was working on another blackbird piece and decided I wasn't loving the floss. So, I sat it to the side.

I've read a few blogs and find myself not commenting (sorry everyone - I know we all like comments). Mostly though, I just scroll through and look at the pictures. If one strikes me - then I open the post. It's not right and I hate this attitude I've found myself carrying around.

Basically, the reason I am posting this is to say "Yes, I'm alive and well." For a bit...surgery on my left hand is 2 weeks from today. I think that may be starting to grind in the back of my mind too.

Hopefully, I'll post our SAL results for the week. Waiting on some pics.
Hope your holiday is more cheerful than I am!

Denise, sorry to hear you are out of sorts. My baby turns 25 in November, now that hurts. Hopefully your surgery and a change in seasons will help. I'm here if you need to vent.

So sorry you are in the crapper, hope you don't stay there too long, you'll get stinky. It is an awful feeling to be down and not know the way up, but some kind of life ring will be thrown to you. Often, it comes in a form you would never expect.... like when a blogger friend invites you to join an SAL. So, make sure to watch for that ring, it will really be an angel in disguise and it will pull you up in a very surprising way.

Your second post of the day sounded much more cheery, Denise. Here's hoping you're feeling more like that than like this atm.
