Well I was off work last weekend, so on Saturday I cleaned my house. Sad, but true. It seems that I'm always cleaning my house, but with 6 people living here....it kinda needs it about every other day!
On Sunday we went HERE what a lovely visit we had. We all love to go there and they encourage kids to come sort of dressed up in Prairie/Colonial type clothing. Katie wore a Prairie Bonnet and the boys wore straw hats...Ellie she wouldn't have anything to do with any sort of head cover :) We had a great time and drank a lot of home-brewed Root Beer and Lemon Fizz....they were having a Country Fair Theme last weekend and they had a bearded lady, a tattooed lady, medicine men shows, vaudeville acts...it was a blast! I think personally the Sassafras Root Beer and Lemon Fizz was my most favorite part ;)
Monday, brought down Ian...he had the stomach flu...the worst nightmare of a mother of 4....however none of us have gotten it to date, that can be taken as good news or bad news...good in the fact that I only had to clean up after one person on one day...bad in the fact that we'll all have to likely go through it at a later more "inconvenient" date. Oh well - grin and bear it.
On Tuesday I pulled out this little gem....remember it?!
I even purchased a lovely frame for it, I've got to get it done before 12/31/07 as I dated it. So I'm hopeful to finish it in the next 3 months. I'm close...very close. Of course I made all the changes - no alphabet and two verses/sayings...so.....but I do think it is rather lovely, don't you?
Next up, on Monday I also received this RAK from sweet Carol.....she sent me the super lovely AMAP design from my wishlist. Carol you know I love it! And it brightened a rather sallow, vomit day....if you catch my drift :) Thank you so much sweet friend.!!!
Well that brings me to the end of my post. It is Thursday so humpday is done...and that means laundry day is over! *WHOO HOO!* Today, all I've got on my roster is stitching and the Orthodontist appt. for Ian. I'm working on my SBEBB Halloween exchange...I'm hopeful I get most of the way through that today. Then I've almost complete on my SBEBB Harvest Exchange. If I make it through those two then I'm homefree for a while on exchanges. I'm backing off a tad for a while before I burn myself out.....
