A Columbus Day Update

Not a lot to report this week. Last weekend, totally consumed with soccer, this weekend, totally consumed with soccer - and summer came back :(, so today, I am freaking FRIED again. It was like 88 yesterday, sitting in crappy metal bleachers from 12-3, persimmons falling from the tree above (though I sat down far enough to not get hit, but I smelled 'em the entire time). It's going to be in the upper 80s all week again, so last week's 70s were nothing but a tease, dammit.

As for it being Columbus Day, well, whatever. Kids were out of school already - last Friday through tomorrow for Fall Break. Then my 8th grader is going to Savannah for 3 days; I wasn't allowed to go to D.C. for my 8th grade trip, so I made sure he could go do this. LONG bus ride in his future - hope he remembers his phone charger :)

On to the stitching...

I kept Starry Nights out and got a good bit done on it. I think I finally figured out the best way to work on it, with that 2-layer chart, and haven't made any colossal errors since. If I'd worked on it this much in one sitting before, I'd have figured it out sooner, I expect.

I worked on it Mon-Weds, and then again on Friday night a little, and then Saturday before we left for the game; Thursday was a wash, as I was on the phone with my mom that night, it was her 78th birthday. Nuttier than a fruitcake...

Anyway, Saturday, I got Murky Manor back out, though between Saturday & Sunday and spending some time writing, I didn't accomplish much - I now have a chimney done and have started the lower roof on the left side.

I'll keep MM out for at least part of the week, if not all. I also received Jodie's RR on Friday, so will likely get that out at some point, too. HERE it is when Carolyn finished it up and sent it on to me :) Other than that, nothing really planned - I think we have 2 games again this weekend, though maybe we'll be home for one (since home is still 40 minutes from the house). I'm hoping Fall comes back soon, and doesn't just dump us into winter like it did last year - that wasn't cool :( Until next week, Happy Stitching, everyone!

Oh the joy of having girls, no football ever!!
we did every bit of music going, mostly as an afterschool club.
You will always find time for stitching.
