I Survived It

I'm proud to report I survived yesterday. It wasn't near as bad as I expected, working on 4.5 hours sleep. I've done it in the past numerous times, but for some reason this one was freaking me out.

I got home from work after stopping at the grocery store and the library. The plan was to do a simple dinner, but Princess had already eaten - GRRRRR.

I stood in the kitchen for 2 hours and made the following
~ roasted an acorn squash
~ made hummus
~ chopped vegetables for snacking on through the week
~ made a flakes of ham wrap for my lunch today (wanted tuna, but grabbed the wrong can)

By the time I was finished all that, it was too late eat anything heavy, so I mowed down an apple sprinkled with cinnamon and WW toast with peanut butter. Dinner of the rich and fabulous!

I had every intention of stitching last night. I just couldn't find the energy so I hit my bed about 8:30 and read until 9pm. It was lights out and I only woke up twice in the night, once at 11p and then again at 4am. Pretty bad that in order to get a decent night's sleep I have to run on 4.5 hours prior to - sick!

The alarm went off around 5am, and off to the street I head for a 6K. I ran with Gimp Girl A.K.A. Krista, this morning. Poor little pumpkin has a bad hip right now. I keep telling her to take it easy and slow down, but she is more driven than I am when it comes to pushing herself. I walked when she wanted (wooho for walking) and then ran when she felt up to it. I know she's going to see a doctor today, so send out some 'feel better' vibes her way, if you would be so kind.

I'm all ready for work and don't have to leave for another half hour, so I'm off to read while I leisurely sip on a tea. I wish I had this kind of time every morning. I guess 5am wake up times will do that for ya.

I have a hellish day at work today! I'm participating this the code calling exercise and it is not very clearly defined for me to follow. It promises to be uber stressful, so any time around 2pm eastern time, think of me!?

I also have a ball game tonight, but don't know if the weather will hold out or not. I'm good either way... not playing is okay with me. Playing is good too, since after ball Todd and I head back to Kurt and Krista's for a beer and wings. It's really about the friends and food, not so much the ball.

Happy stitching days to you that are able to put needle to thread. I'm jealous.

Wildflower Rhapsody - 15 hours

I don't normally post pics at the 5 hour mark. I know! I know! Beat a dead horse already. I put out the option and had 2 ya's, so here is my most recent update.

I've been making really good progress on this one and loving every minute. The problem is, as of this morning my stitching time will be to a minimum for a while. Oh well, it's not a race. I'll get to it when I'm able and love it all the more for the time away!

Quick post this morning, since I should be getting ready for work. Running on 4.5 hours sleep right now so I'm not the most articulate anyway.

Happy stitching days to you!

Foolish Chatter

Wildflower Rhapsody has become my new obsession. In the last 2 days, I've added 5 hours to this piece. I am just loving it which is really saying something because there are so many colour changes it is ridiculous.

I stitched 2 hours on Saturday night with a total of 20 colours and tonight it was 3 hours with 24 colours. It seriously looked like the rainbow exploded around me.

The question I have for you is this: Do you want to see an update now (5 hours) or would you rather wait until I'm at another 10 hour block?. I'm not sure how long it will take me to find another 5 hours to put to this piece. I am hoping to be able to stitch a little bit throughout the week. Being realistic I'll probably not have another update until next Monday if I go for the 10 hour block. You'd seriously think I was trying to bring about world peace with the amount of thought I've put in to this. It's not rocket science, but you'd not know it by the way I'm prattling on.

Could the prattling and nattering have anything to do with the fact that I'm dog tired and I'm down to less than hour before I get to go home? I think, just a little bit.

The call is yours. Post now or in another 5 hours.

Is It Bedtime Yet?

I am exhausted and my day has barely begun.

I just got home from playing a round of 9 hole golf with Cute Boy and 3 of his co-workers. It was a lot of fun and I was a much better golfer once I quit hitting from the tee on my tip toes! Thank, Cute Boy for the insight BAAHHH He may regret correcting my form since I out drove him on a hole, or was it 2 holes! I love it! Our golfing partners were a very nice couple of people, Kim is the cutest ever! Percy, well there isn't much I can say about him, he's a Boston Red Sox fan... what is up with that! One hell of a golfer though. And about Cute Boy, well what can I tell you about him that I haven't already! Cute boy!

I'm now killing time waiting to head to Walmart, pick up a few things then go get Lily from work. I'm working tonight 6p-2a then turning around and heading to work for a 9am-5p Monday - Friday. This is going to be a long week, but nothing I haven't done before. This is my last weekend shift for a while, so as much as I'm already tired, I'm soooo excited to put this one behind me. I hope my office isn't looking for much support tomorrow because this girl is going to be running on empty!

Things where I work are changing in the next little bit and it will really affect me. I'm hoping it will affect me to the better, and when I know something more concrete I'll fill you in.

I'm going to work on Halloween Fairy tonight for an hour then the rest of the night on Wildflower Rhapsody. I'll probably not read much for fear of falling asleep. I will miss the Yankee ball game tonight as well as the Nascar race because of my social activities, but since the job pays the mortgage AND the cable bill, I must go to work! Edited to add: I'm officially out of Dandelion Stem and Black Coffee floss. Any other work on this piece will be the remaining work with other colours until I place an on-line order for additional floss.

Happy Stitching days to you!

WHOA Wildflower Rhapsody - 10 hours

This is my first 10 hour block. I'm loving this piece and was sad to see the emergence of 10 hours so quickly. I'm sad to have to put it down, so I'm not. I took it off the clamps to take a pic and it is going back on in short order.

Is it just me or does it not seem as though that is a lot of work for only 10 hours? Could be that I didn't get too involved with the flowers and trust when I say they will be slow going once I do focus on them.

I'm off to cuddle in with my stitching and watch the hockey game since my plans for this evening are rudely interrupted with me not feeling well at the moment. I had my cry over not feeling well, I know I'm a wimp, but I hate feeling sick especially when I've made plans, and plans with Krista no less. Off to lick my wounds with my tea, my blanket and stitching.

Hope to be feeling better soon.

Happy stitching days to you!

Chattering, Prattling and Randomness

Nothing much new going on around here, just feeling a little chatty. I thought, if I'm feeling chatty why not torture my regular readers with my rambling. Thanks my loverlies!

I have seen this way of posting on a couple of blogs and I think it's a neat way to read, so in my originality, I'm stealing it! LOL

1. My WI this morning - 129 AGAIN! Come on already. I think I'm just a natural 129. I'm trying to work my way around to being okay with this number, but truth be told - I hate it. Now, please don't go off on me, okay. I know it's not a bad number, but for me it's a bigger number than I like. I don't feel good at this number, I don't feel I look good at this number. I'm more comfortable at 125-123. Any lower than that people tell me I look sick. I disagree, but that is just me. For those of you that don't know me in the physical sense - I'm only 5' 2" (I think my doctor's on crack) because I think I'm really only 5'. I have a small frame (uncomfortable saying this). I don't have a lot of places to hide extra weight. If all the extra weight went to my boobs I'd be in my glory, but sadly it's right on my waist, hips and thighs! Blah!

2. Cute Boy and I have put an extension in on the lot for the house. The closing date was May 30th, but since Cute Boy's house has yet to sell we've had to submit and extension. Cute Boy is having an open house in 2 weeks. Should be fun! If he will allow me to work my magic, ya right, I can totally transform his home. I'll let you know how my power of persuasion works. Bat my blue eyes and smile cute. Maybe. I don't really think so though!

3. My running is slowing down right now. I have bum heel. I had a super bad blister that is gone, but the skin is peeling away and the heel has cracked. Gross, eh! It is my own fault for buying a running shoe that is 1/2 a size too small. I tell ya, I get by because I'm cute never because I'm overly smart.

4. I only have 2 more weekend days to work and I have weekends off for the summer! Sweet sweet sweet. I'm hoping to make the most of my weekends without running myself to the ground - good luck!

5. Said weekends off will give me little to no stitching time. I'll deal, but I will miss my stitching oh so much!

6. The biggest note of all..... I'm in the most amazing place mentally. I love my life as of late. I'm not feeling stressed about things. I'm excited about this new chapter. I really wish T's house would sell so we could start this journey forward together. It is going to be a challenge, but something I'm really looking forward to doing with him and Lily.

7. Now for Princess. I have a hard time posting about her, since things with her sister are so difficult. I always struggle with being impartial and not choosing sides or looking as though I have a favorite. Princess is just the one I spend most of my time with lately. She is just the coolest kid. I'm so impressed by most things about her. She is very much like me.... a perfectionist - sorry kid. She is funny, okay, not so much like me. She and I get along so well. Driving in the car with her listening to music, singing along, is one of my most special times of any day!

I think that is all the prattling I'll burden you with. I'm off to finish my tea and get the laundry on the clothes line.

Hopefully I'll be back by Monday sometime with an update of Wildflower Rhapsody.

Love ya's!

The Second Summer of the Sisterhood - Ann Brashares

With a bit of last summer's sand in the pockets, the Traveling Pants and the Sisterhood that wears them embark on their 16th summer.

Bridget: Impulsively sets off for Alabama, wanting to both confront her demons about her family and avoid them all at once.

Lena: Spends a blissful week with Kostos, making the unexplainable silence that follows his visit even more painful.

Carmen: Is concerned that her mother is making a fool of herself over a man. When she discovers that her mother borrowed the Pants to wear on a date, she's certain of it.

Tibby: Not about to spend another summer working at Wallman's, she takes a film course only to find it's what happens off-camera that teaches her the most.

Book # 11 - I really enjoyed this book. It is simple, yet complex when dealing with the relationships of these girls. I can so much of my own life in the way the girls deal with the trials and tribulations of their lives.

I'm currently waiting for the DVD of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants to come in from the library so I can get the movie watched so I can go to the theatre and see the second movie. I can't wait to be totally honest with you!

Wild Flower and Wild Stitching Shake Up

The time has come once again when I'm going to fine tune my rotation.

I've been talking with Pam again about some of my obligation stitching - another retirement piece for a girl at work. I started this particular piece, Wildflower Rhapsody not too long ago. I say not too long ago, which is probably more like 6-8 months ago. Not years though, so that is a vast improvement over the most recent retirement gift finish.

I'm currently acting in a full time position at work for a girl that is off from shoulder surgery. Along with previously diagnosed ailments, she has just recently been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Knowing the pain my mother suffered at the hands of this merciless disease and other diseases, I know the road for my co-worker is not going to be an easy one. The job we do, is one that demands full flexibility of shoulder, arms and hands, so to say this job will be a long term challenge is nothing if not an understatement.

I'm getting side tracked. So easy for me to do, I know. I thought I would have more time to plug away at this particular retirement piece, but I now see that may not necessarily be the case. In light of this recent development, I've decided to move Wildflower Rhapsody in to the focus piece slot. I will work on it in 10 hour blocks, with a UFO piece worked 1 hour per week. I'm running out of floss for 2 sections on Halloween Fairy, so I may move another piece to the UFO slot as well. I'm considering Summer Breeze or Enchanted Fairy. The logical choice would and should be Summer Breeze. Still thinking on that one.

You'd think there was some science to how I do what I do. It is my own foolish fault I'm in this particular predicament. If I'd shown some restraint at any time during the past couple years I would not be currently sitting with 10 WIP. 10! That is even after weeding through the list and eliminating pieces for people I no longer want to stitch for, at least not right now anyway.

I'm off to round up the supplies for WR and then head to bed. It has been a long exhausting day. I'm off tomorrow (Tues) so all is good. I have some cleaning and laundry, as well as an 8K run to do. If I can get up and get moving (read stay off the computer), I should hopefully be able to stitch some in the afternoon.

Thanks, as always, for letting me prattle on and figure all this stitching out. I'm sure in the near future I'll be back with an update of some sort.

Happy stitching days to you!

Enchanted Fairy - 20 hours

Another blob of pastel stitches. This time I'm displaying my most recent update of Enchanted Fairy. She is coming along nice enough, but with not a lot of time committed to her, there isn't much to show.

I am going to choose another focus piece now that Job's Tears is complete, but rotate through my other pieces a little more consistently than I have of late. It seems as though I love every piece once I work on it and that is the case with this piece, as with Bubbles.

I started this piece for a reason and I now remember why. The colours are so soft and it moves relatively quick. It feels in some ways, as though I'm stitching on Middy again which I loved working on at the time.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

Happy stitching days to you.

Sunday, May 18, 2008


I finally took the time to dig out Bubbles. It doesn't look like much at the moment, but hopefully at some point the next couple months I can make progress to see more than a pretty pastel blob!

Of 174,300 stitches I've completed approximately 1300! I'm smoking my way through this one, I am! Ya right. I was telling Pam I may hang this in the girls'/guest bathroom in the new house. Who knows by then, but right now that is the plan. I thought 'Bubbles' and bathroom would be a neat little tie in. What do you think?

I started this little... ugh, huge gem in September of 2004 and this is the first time I've touched it since. I'm ashamed of myself!

I'm loving it, although the confetti stitches are a major PITA. A wise friend pointed out my love of this is not good since I'll be wanting to work on more HAED's and I have more than enough to keep me busy for two lifetimes already.

I have some stitching goals that I must set and I'll get back to you with them over the next couple days. I want to give them some thought before I commit to anything. There is one piece that will have to become a priority and in short order. Wish me luck!

Sundays At Tiffany's - James Patterson

As a little girl, Jane has no one. Her mother, the powerful head of a Broadway theater company, has no time for her. She does have one friend-a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael-but only she can see him.

Years later, Jane is in her thirties and just as alone as ever. Then she meets Michael again-as handsome, smart and perfect as she remembers him to be. But not even Michael knows the reason they've really been reunited.

SUNDAYS AT TIFFANY'S is a love story with an irresistible twist, a novel about the child inside all of us-and the boundary-crossing power of love.

Book #10
- I read this book in 1 day, which is nothing new with a James Patterson. I enjoyed it, but had some difficulty with what was 'real' or 'imaginary'. Maybe I just don't believe in a way I should.

My KGH Tree

This is the view from my front door. It brings a smile to my face every time I catch a glimpse of this tree. It is so gorgeous and still not in full bloom. I had always wanted a Flowering Crab and I finally got one. Sadly though, what usually happens is it hits full bloom and looks gorgeous for about 4 days and then a nasty rain wind storm comes along and blows all the blooms away. For those few days, I'm in love!

This tree is fondly known as my KGH tree. It was bought for me in celebration of my new job at KGH, 9 years ago. I wish I had a picture of it from when it was a baby.

Of all the things I'm going to miss when I move from this house, it is the plants in the yard. I was out cutting the grass last night and it dawned on my this will probably be the last spring that I see all these beautiful trees and shrubs in bloom. As excited as I am for this new chapter in my life I'm going to miss these special touches, all planted by me, that I'm leaving behind.

I didn't intend this post to be sad, but now when I think of it further, I have a snowball bush in the front corner, planted in memory of my grandfather that passed 4 years ago. That will be the most difficult one to leave behind. I'll have to convince Cute Boy to plant another one at our new house, I guess. Wish me luck with that one!

Midnight - Dean R. Koontz

The citizens of Moonlight Cove, California, are changing. Some are losing touch with their deepest emotions. Others are surrendering to their wildest urges. And the few who remain unchanged are absolutely terrified--if not brutally murdered in the dead of night...
Book #9 - My first Dean R. Koontz novel. I'm not a fan of science fiction on any level and at points, was so bored by the premise of aliens, even humanly manipulated aliens. Not my cup of tea. That would be the reason it took me over 2 months to read.

I found characters (non-alien) were characters I cared about, but the book was filled with so much of the science angle, I struggled to stay with the story.

I know not all Dean Koontz's novels are science fiction based, so I'm going to investiage and see if there others that may appeal to me.

Silly Saturday Night Snacks

Krista and I had the opportunity to hang out on Saturday night. It was just what was needed by both of us. We spend time together a lot, between running and ball. There isn't a lot of time when we are just hanging out at home with wine and snacks and nothing more pressing than who is going to each which 100 calorie snack.

The weather was wonderful in the early evening, so we found ourselves out on the deck sipping our special drinks. I was able to finally indulge in a little wine - wonderful wine too. The freedom of all things troublesome was a gift that money couldn't buy.

We kept the snacks and the convo light. We munched on baked pita minis, with tziaztki and a bruschetta mix. Yummy Actually, I don't like the word 'yummy' - its sounds disgusting, but yummy is the best fit for what we ate. The freedom to eat and not be all freaked out about points and the food guilts after eating was much appreciated. I'm always extremely impressed with Krista's food preparation! You rock, girl!

Don't they look like the most scrumptious snack ever?

As with all things good, the night went way too fast, but was filled wonderful company and great conversation. This type of night is just what I needed and one that shows the special gift of friendship!

We will really have to do this again and soon!

Love you!

Job's Tears Complete

Job's Tears - Paula Vaughan
Dec 23, 2004 - May 11, 2008
Stitching Time - 99h 40m

I can't believe I'm finally finished! It is my oldest WIP and I couldn't be happier to have it finished. As much as I'm excited to have another piece over on to the finished side of my list, I am really going to miss working on this one. It has been a constant companion the last couple weeks. It was never that I didn't want to work on this piece, but I got into a really bad place of starting a lot of piece quite quickly after this one, so this one just got pushed to the backburner for such a long period of time. Poor thing!

I do love the feeling of being finished a piece, and the feeling of accomplishment especially when putting away all the floss bobbins. That is almost as exciting as getting things together when preparing for a new start.

I'm thinking my next piece I'm going to push to finish will be Halloween Fairy. I'm hoping only another 10-15 hours and her and I will be crossing the finish line. Let's hope, anyway.

Thank you for all your support over the last few years while I plugged away on this.

Happy stitching days to you!

From The Mouth Of The Horse

After much speculation around my office, it has been confirmed. My co-worker is leaving. Her and I had a chance to talk today and she told me she is officially finished July 31. It was a sad moment for the two of us. She is happy and scared all at the same time, and as happy as I am for her to move on to this new and different chapter in her life, I'm really going to miss her.

My office is staffed by 11 women and as much as we are co-workers we are more like family. The things we have gone through together is the type of live experiences you share with your family. We have celebrated together and mourned together. In the almost 9 years since I've worked in my office, we have seen a separation, a daughter with breast cancer, a mother admitted to hospital with many ailments, weddings, numerous grandchildren being born, grandfathers passing away, grade school graduations, university graduations, housewarming parties, new houses, renovations, trips to Costa Rica, Ireland, Florida, the East Coast and beyond. The life experiences we've shared are the things that make me realize the people I share my office with, I very much share my life with as well. As much as we will struggle as a group at times, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Our job is one that can be very relaxed and in an instant be something of a war zone. It is with teamwork that the office runs smoothly and without the trust and support of one another, the job, or each individual in that team would not be near as successful as they are as a single unit, working towards the common goal of doing our job and holding up our own part of the team.

I guess as much as I describe a team work effort, it could very well be paralleled to that of a family. A family is only as strong as it's weakest link as is my office. I sadly, as much as I love the girls I work with, spend more time with them than I do my own family. When life is exciting it is them I share, the same with the sad. Some of the most support I've received been has been in the hugs of my co-workers. I like to think in my own small way I've given the same love and support to them.

My dearest girl, I shall not name you, since it's not been made official through appropriate channels that you are leaving. Know, with sadness I prepare for your leaving and with joy in my heart, I also get ready to bid you 'comfortably numb' in this new and exciting chapter in your life. Love you!

Ricochet - Sandra Brown

When Detective Sergeant Duncan Hatcher is summoned to the home of Judge Cato Laird in the middle of the night to investigate a fatal shooting, he knows that discretion and kid-glove treatment are the keys to staying in the judge's good graces and keeping his job.

At first glance, the case appears open-and-shut: Elise, the judge's trophy wife, interrupted a burglary in progress and killed the intruder in self-defense. But Duncan is immediately suspicious of Elise's innocent act. His gut feeling is that her account of the shooting is only partially true -- and it's the parts she's leaving out that bother him.

Determined to learn the dead man's connection to the Lairds and get at the truth, Duncan investigates further and quickly finds his career, as well as his integrity, in jeopardy -- because he can't deny his increasing attraction to Elise Laird, even if she is a married woman, a proven liar, and a murder suspect.

When Elise seeks Duncan out privately and makes an incredible allegation, he initially dismisses it as the manipulative lie of a guilty woman. But what if she's telling the truth? Then that single fatal gunshot at her home takes on even more sinister significance, possibly involving Duncan's nemesis, the brutal crime lord Robert Savich.

And then Elise goes missing . . .

Ricochet's plot twists -- as only Sandra Brown can write them -- and palpable suspense combine to create this gripping thriller, in which a decent cop's worst enemy may be his own conscience, and trusting the wrong person could mean the difference between life and death.

Book #8 - WOW! WOW! WOW! What an incredible book! This is the first Sandra Brown book I've read. I can't wait to read the next one. I was intrigued by the story from the very beginning. It could be that I've never read a book by this particular author that I couldn't predict the next step, but it was good and kept me guessing until the end.

Mommy, I'm having a bad hairday!

Have you ever seen a cuter, more pathetic looking thing in your life?

This would be my baby girl with a really bad hair do. She is need of her spring cut and I've yet to book her. I trim her through the winter to keep the hair out of her eyes and trim away any mats she may get from wet paws. She is working the room in this shot. Trust me on that one.

Oh, how I love this little dog.

Starbuck Cup - Moving Message

Madeleine K. Albright

There are numerous cup messages that I get that don't do a thing for me. They don't make me think about a single thing and at times, once I've read them I never think of them again. The cup message is as fun for me as the joy of that first sip of liquid heaven - non-fat chai tea latte.

This message ranks up there in my top 4. There are 3 others I get that really move me. When I get them again, I will share with you. One has to do with running/walking and the other 2 pertain to being loved, how you're loved and kissing your children is the finally message that made me stop and ponder for a moment.

The last time I got this particular message, I was with Velda. It was the night we went to make the return at Home Depot. It was fitting because here was a situation where one incredible woman was helping another. Not meaning I'm an incredible woman (I'm not fishing for compliments), but referring to Velda as the incredible woman! To end a fun night with a trip to Starbucks and with such a fitting cup message was perfect. I would have posted the pic then, but I totally forgot and pitched the cup. My bad.

I've been in a place where I wouldn't have made it through without the support of of incredible woman that I can call friends. It wasn't even that they were friends that they helped me. I remember this woman saleslady at the Brick that sold me my new bed, after my separation. I was still emotionally raw and when we were talking about whether or not I was going to buy this new bed, she asked me why I needed/wanted it. I told her, in my emotionally overwrought state, I cried, of course. It was then that I knew I needed a new bed, to assuage the demons of a married bed with a cheating history (not in my own bed, but outside of it), that I knew it was time. That woman was one of the women that help another woman need. No special place in hell for her, but a wonderful place in the history of me getting from there to here. Pam was along for the purchase of the new bed which was just what I needed, another woman that got me from that time to this better time.

The list of those that helped me is long and plenty. You all know who you are and you all know how you helped in your own little, or not so little way.

There is a very special person in my life that is going through a tough time. She is sadly being hurt in a friendship with another woman. It is painful to watch one hurt and know there isn't much you can do, but listen and be there. I hope I do the message justice in the sense that I can now be the woman that helps another woman. It has been proven you can make a difference, even if at the time you don't know your impact in that person's life.
