Friday when I arrived home from work a package was on the kitchen table for me. The fabric (gorgeous) and notebook (love it) from Carmen had arrived. And, she included two packs of needles. Thank you again Carmen! What a perfect ending to a less-than-perfect work week. I already have a SL project in mind for the fabric, but I need/want to work on Dona Dorothea for now. Lovely to plan ahead though.
I managed to do a bit of stitching on Dona Dorothea last week…unfortunately no stitching this weekend. Errands and chores got in the way and then just extreme tiredness/laziness. I didn’t sleep well Saturday night due to the neighbors having a rowdy party that went on till after midnight. What I should have done was close the bedroom windows and turn the air on, but we were having one of those gloriously cool summer evenings and I prefer fresh air to air conditioning…so I didn’t. And, thus, no sleep. My own fault. But, here is where Dona Dorothea stands for now. Not sure if any stitching will be done tonight…but maybe…
Yesterday my husband and I were sitting on the patio with beverages before dinner when we heard a little splash. This gentleman (or lady?) had hopped into a little pool of water we have by our patio and then hopped out onto the mulch beside it. So tiny and so cute, BUT, as I told Fletch, when he is in the water with his head sticking out his/her head suspiciously looks like a snake head – YIKES!!
Fletch saw him/her again this evening, but when I looked he/she was in hiding. So far Tyg hasn’t seen him (luckily).
Hard to believe that we are already past the middle of July. The summer is flying by. We are looking forward to our son and his girlfriend coming home over Labor Day weekend – can’t wait for that!
Have a great week!
