I'm buried in comment notifications the last couple days. All of it spam. Maybe if I post something it will stop? Nothing exciting going on. So I'll just share that I've started practicing my Ukulele again. I bought it a... Continue reading

I moved to step three last week. I spent the summer at an eating disorder treatment center working on my first step with my sponsor. Which means I emailed her everyday and learned to act in ways that show I... Continue reading

I'm back. I surrender. I'm powerless and my life is unmanageable. I've been struggling for a long time. I reconnected with my sponsor yesterday. We walked and talked for about an hour before a meeting. She isn't sure she is... Continue reading

"Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you... Continue reading

I have a 5pm Appointment with my guy at H&R Block. I spent all my time between meetings today hunting for some missing tax documents. Though I found my missing property tax bill from last year, I could not find... Continue reading

Your yard in inspiring. My balcony seems even more neglected when compared to your cozy sanctuary. Thanks for confirming identity of the O. I can now start on my kit with a calm mind. I knew it would drive me mad to look at it for duration of the stitching with that question on my mind.

Please do the black background cross stitch. Kit or pattern, either would be great. I've been drooling over the glimpses you've shared.

I too would love to see Andy's work, front and back. I think of his mullet sampler whenever I stress about how messy my backs are or when I occasionally wrap my thread from back to front around the hoop. I see Andy's sampler in my head and it makes me laugh every time.

I wore Capri pants today in the warm weather. I like the show Terriers so far on Netflix instant watch. What else? Oh yeah, my dad was in the hospital because he has a shit-ton of blood clots in his... Continue reading

I've been crafty lately but have no photographic proof of it. I really need to take photos before I give this stuff away. Here some of things I've done lately (you'll just have to take my word for it): A... Continue reading

Seconding the robe. A robe based on these dresses would be glorious. Now I'm pondering that idea for myself. Wonder if I can fit that in with all the other handmade gifts I'm attempting... Dress or robe, this is a must do!

I'm so very sorry. Loving prayers for all of you.
I just want to know, is that a Chocolate Shake or a Chocolate Cake shake? For those not in the know, they take a small piece of their delicious chocolate cake and mix it with the shake. The fudge frosting gets stuck in the straw sometimes, but totally worth the extra effort. Yum!
I am so far behind on posting crafts I've finished or at least started. I took some pictures, but haven't uploaded off my camera yet. And really, pictures are required for it to be interesting. I made pattern weights with... Continue reading

Arhhh! Went to Bed Bath & Beyond this week and now I've got the willies. There were bed bug related products all over the store; sprays and mattress encasements and who knows what else. Then last night there was a... Continue reading

Surrendering to HP feels like giving up. Could I be on the right track with that? If I surrender everything that I don't have power over that doesn't leave very much left for me to deal with. It could get... Continue reading

I watched Inglourious Basterds tonight. Even though I knew it was a Tarantino film, I didn't really think about what that meant until I saw the pink mist of gun shot wounds. I only ever read about that in novels,... Continue reading

There are now three eggs in the nest plus the discarded egg. I'm surprised by how much I'm enjoying watching this progress on my balcony. It is pouring now. I wonder if mama is on the nest right now. I'd... Continue reading
