... I stitched! Hadn't picked up a needle and thread since Jan 30th. Last night I was determined to finish my stars! It was after midnight but I met my goal.
I did get a few other small projects finished. I'll show them later - they need to fly away first and I think I'm doing my shipping later this week.
The kids were over last night for dinner. They both love chicken parmesan and had asked for it for their birthdays last year.
We also attempted to foster a new pup this week. But, we found out quickly that we are a one dog house. I would like to publicly thank Angela (Indomitable Angela) for her advice and wisdom. She knows her pets! When we called the shelter to let them know we would not be keeping her permanently they asked for her to come back that night. She had really settled down and was learning the ropes around here. I hope she finds a family soon.
My genealogy project now has over 850 people. The growth is a bit slower now. I found myself spending hours per day typing info into my program, copying pictures, loading pictures, going through more pictures, calling my mom or MIL, and starting the research. I made myself stop and now allow myself an hour per day of research time and input. But, I'm back about 6 or 7 generations and things are getting sketchy - plus I'm back far enough they are arriving on the boats.
In the process I found out the 1940 Census will be released in about 80 days and volunteered to become an indexer for the familysearch.org website. I've been practicing and learning the last few days. Thought this project might be something to help keep my mind engaged until I decide about going back to work.
Rob and I have decided to do some DIY projects before Logan's graduation party. Then we realized we have less than 3 months to get finished. Hoping to power wash the porch and garage, put cladding on the porch posts, add handrails, new front steps, finish the trim inside, maybe repaint the public areas of the house, and get fans for the porch. Do you think we'll make it? lol
It's time that I move from the couch and start my day. Hmm, maybe this evening I'll even get to stitch more - Rob isn't going to be home tonight! And dinner will be left overs - woohoo.
Hope today finds you accomplishing everything you put your mind to!
