It's been awhile since I've been here. I went back down to my Mother's for 11 days, while she had surgery to "put her back together" again. She had a colostomy and it was reversible. It's been almost a year since the car accident...and she's finally finished with her surgeries!!!!
"Og the Dog" had his annual physical exam this afternoon....and he passed with flying colors. Hard to believe he'll be 7 years old this July... and he'll then be considered a "senior". He'll always be "my little boy"!!! Isn't he a cute little guy??
While I was gone...the plants in my rock garden really grew! I'm happy with the way it looks so far this year! I moved several plants around last fall...and added several this spring.. Lookin' good!!!! Now...to keep up with the weeding....
Made a hat out of cotton yarn while I was away...and also worked on the baby afghan. Things are moving right along....a month from tomorrow is the baby shower! Better get my butt in gear!!!
Hope to see you tomorrow....

Well, it's Mother's Day once again. My youngest son called while I was at work. I'm sorry I missed his call....and he went to work just about the time I finished my shift for the day. Regardless...it was nice that he remembered me...he always does. My oldest lad...well, that's another story.
It's been a busy week. I managed to get some major house cleaning done...and John got the trim up in the hallway. Looks SUPER!!!
Made my elderly neighbor, Jeannie, a sachet for Mother's Day....filled with lavender. She does so many nice things for people, I always try to remember her on special occasions. Anyway...it was just a small cross-stitch project! I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out. The picture above is "the work in progress".....and damn, if I didn't forget to take a picture of it when it was done. Oh well...it looks just like the photo on the package, except I used a white ribbon instead of the pink embroidery floss.
More cleaning this week. Trying to get rid of the clutter. My biggest problem is I hate to part with anything once I have it. But...one drawer at a time...and we'll see what happens.
Think I'll go put my feet up for awhile. I'm beat!!!! Hope to see you tomorrow.....

Well...what do you think??? These are my new clothing labels I ordered...and will use them on my hats and scarfs...or whatever else I make for the craft shows, ebay or for gifts. As soon as I see a sample of the business cards, I might order a few of them as well.
T.G.I.S.---Thank Goodness It's SUNDAY! My week is over with, and now I have what I call "my long week-end"--4 days off!!! I worked a double shift today...and it was well worth my time. We had a party of 40 come in...I just love surprises!!!
My hubby is coming down with the same virus I have. Poor guy! I know just how miserable he is. I'm feeling better each day, but my voice is very "coarse" and throat is "scratchy".
Looks like the next few days are going be a bit warmer and SUNNY! Lords knows I have a bunch of laundry that needs to be done!!! A few good days to hang my clothes outside!!! :) I just love the smell of line-dried clothes!!!
Well...think I'll go downstairs and watch some t.v. I'm going to make it an early evening!!!

It's been a week since I've been here....how time flies!!!
This week I've been alittle "under the weather". I came down with a sore throat...head cold...a harsh cough...and just feel like someone kicked the "shit" out of me. Just a nasty virus that has re-surfaced in the area and it decided to pay me a visit. I sure wish it would go and visit someone else...
So...that's been my week. I did manage to crochet a few rows on the baby blanket.... and I even did some reading....a fun book by Erma Bombeck..."A Marriage Made In Heaven or Too Tired For An Affair". If you get a chance...it's worth spending some time with!!
Other than that, I've been "useless" to say the least. Hopefully, I'll have more to share with you in a day or two.
In the meantime...stay healthy!! Talk to you soon...
