Here are my two projects I'm working on... I didn't get much stitching done the few weeks I was sick, I hope to get back working on these on a regular basis now!!

Idle flowers

Thick on the woodland floor
Gay company shall be,
Primrose and Hyacinth
And frail Anemone,
Perennial Strawberry-bloom,
Woodsorrel's pencilled veil,
Dishevel'd Willow-weed
And Orchis purple and pale.
~Robert Seymour Bridges, Idle Flowers

I really like this quote!

What makes a good blog?

Just now I was clicking "next blog" and paging thru the many blogger blogs that are out there.. and find mine very lacking. I found blogs full of beautiful pictures and insights and things very meaningful. I am a little depressed now and feel a little like my blog is rather dull. :-(

Hanna's Oil Pastel Egg

Every so often the local schools display kids' artwork at the mall, this time one of Hanna's was chosen! Here it is. :-)

still here...

I know it's been a little while, a bad cold or flu, I don't know what it is, has got me down. It's been off and on, mostly on, for three weeks now and it's REALLY getting old. I am feeling a bit better today, but I don't know if it's the meds I'm taking or I'm actually getting better or both. I stayed home from work today because this morning I felt so weak I could hardly stand for more than a couple of minutes together, though I think that's my own fault for not eating right this weekend. I just wasn't hungry. The worst part of it is that our medical insurance changed the first of the year and our old doctor isn't under our new plan, and we haven't chosen a new doctor yet. And the new insurance doesn't cover places like Immediate Care or any of those other walk-in places. So we need to sit down tonight and find a doc. Cause I am tired of this mess.
So as a result of this, I haven't stitched much lately. I've been going to bed pretty much right after the kids do, with the exception of last night; I stayed up and read for a bit. Maybe while I'm home today I'll have the energy to sit and stitch a bit.. we'll see..I may try to go into work later just to run the end of the day reports.

A good wife.

OH my gosh this is too funny! Supposedly an actual article from "back in the day."

A Gathering of Secrets by Linda Castillo

I know, not much stitching lately but I have been on a roll reading books!  I was recently given the opportunity to read this awesome novel,...
