It's still Monday. I have 40 minutes to get this post done and posted or I'm late once again this week!
Going to start with some rambling thoughts ~~
Happy Easter -Yep, a day late and dollar short on that one. But, I was busy (drag that word out and add a whine). Hope everyone had a wonderful day and had the chance to give thought to what you have to be grateful for.
Happy Birthday! - This goes out to Mary Jane (CalamityJr). She had a birthday yesterday! I'm ashamed of myself for not posting and letting everyone have the chance to email and wish her a wonderful day. So, if I could encourage you, please send her a belated birthday wish if you happen to have her email or leave a comment on this post and I'll make sure she sees them!
Read a great book - Loved it so much I am reading it again. If you like Nicholas Sparks or Richard Paul Evans - try reading Lisa Wingate. I've been reading her Blue Sky Hill series and can't get enough. Dandelion Summer just grabs you. As I read the story I would then tell it to Rob. In the end (last 50 or so pages) I just read it out loud to him. We'd watch DWTS and as soon as it cut to commercial - I was reading again. Hated to see the book end.
Rude People - What's up with some people saying 'You're welcome' or 'Thank-you'? Are manners something from the past? Went to the grocery store today and man oh man the people were unfriendly. Not the employees - the customers. Geez!
Coyotes - What's the deal that they have moved into my neighborhood? Mom took her dog out last night and it started barking like mad and wouldn't listen to Mom. (it's a chihuahua and she never listens to Mom) After getting the spotlight and seeing what the dog was barking about - Mom about peed her pants. The thing was bigger than a german shepherd. The part that upsets me - we are in a rather well lit area and it didn't care. Bold wild animals give me the willies.
Alright - I'm ready to show my update for the week. I was determined to finish the magnolias this week. Finished them up yesterday morning.
Maybe this week I can get some leaves on this baby! The male bird is just to the right of that flower and I'm saving him for last. I mean the last thing I do on this page of the pattern. Then I can just go right into the last section with a bang!
Thank you to everyone who was kind enough to leave a comment about my porch. Wish we could all get together out there and bbq and stitch. What a great way to spend a day!
It's late and still Monday - made my goal! Phew.
Hope Tuesday brings all your dream to you!
