I got two teeth pulled today. :( Actually it's not hurting too bad right now- thanks to the Advil I took earlier. :) But still feeling a little sorry for myself due to the very limited things I can eat right now. I have no idea what I'm going to eat for breakfast tomorrow- as I am not a big fan of cream of wheat or oatmeal..  any suggestions?

I have been stitching a little bit more- the Brooke's Books group I'm in is having a challenge right now- Brooke supplies us with an exclusive freebie and we stitch it but make it our own by adding embellishments, changing the design a bit, etc.  I don't think I am going to have mine done in time for the deadline but it's still a fun stitch, and going to be so pretty when it's finished! Here's what I have so far-
Hooray~ blogger is putting the pictures in the right places again. :)
I have also been working on an ornament from a JCS Ornament issue- that I have not gotten very far on but here it is:

I haven't worked on F yet this week- maybe tonight. I'm almost finished with my Snow Sweet snowman, so I will wait til he's done to post him.  Plus I'm too lazy to get up and get him out of my work bag. hee hee.

 We've been keeping busy this summer, aside from birthday parties the kids have been invited to, we have been invited to things as a family as well.  My pastor and his family celebrated the confirmation of one child and graduation of another- they had lots of relatives visiting and we were having so much fun we ended up going over to their house two days in a row!  Then for the 4th of July some friends invited us over to their house for a cookout- their children are about the same age as ours and are good friends as well.  We had a great time! This coming weekend the kids have been invited to another birthday party, but so far I think Sunday will actually be- a day of rest. ;) I hope so! I'm having fun but am ready to take it easy- although I guess I did do that on the 5th. LOL
Well, that's about it here- I will leave you with some more beach pictures courtesy of Marsha-

one of the mountains! :)

When I had my wisdom teeth (all 4) pulled I lived on Cream of Wheat. The maple flavor isn't as bad as the regular. Smoothies are also a good way to get some nourishment!

Beautiful pieces you are working on!

Ouch on the teeth being taken out. Painkillers will be your best friend for a few days! Hope you feel better soon. Some lovely WIPs and great pics from the beach!

Ouch. Yogurt for breakfast?

Lovely photos and stitching though.

Love the kid pics! Sorry to hear about the teeth. Yikes. I hope the pain goes away quickly. Love the WIPs!

Oh, Tracey--so sorry to hear about the teeth! My son had two wisdom teeth pulled yesterday so he knows exactly how you feel. I made scrambled eggs for him and he did fine with them, so perhaps you could try them instead of the oatmeal/cream of wheat diet! Hppe you feel better very soon...

Love the photos of the kids at the beach and those lovely mountains :)

Ouch! I hope your mouth feels better soon.

Your summer house is looking very pretty. I haven't even started mine yet!

There is no place like the beach, is there?

Barb said...

Hope the mouth feels better soon Tracy and you will be able to eat again.
