THE BIG MYSTERY GIFT-A-WAY
*gracious nods to Edgar*
It could be so many things! If you are interested in a chance to win this most mysterious gift-a-way please leave a comment on THIS POST ONLY. No need to mention it on your blog but if you felt so inclined...hugs to you. I don't like to jump through alot of hoops to enter a giveaway so let's keep this one simple. I will pick a name next Saturday night....that's July 2nd, and announce it on Sunday, July 3rd. Masterchief just came in the door mumbling something about a bottle of his favorite BBQ sauce but I've put my foot down this time.
Now let's get to the reason it has been so L-O-N-G since my last post.
Well I don't really know how to break this to you without making myself sound like a hormonal, spoiled teenager.....it had an unfortunate meeting with the paper shredder. *hangs head in shame*
Without going in to alot of detail lets just say in the past six months to a year I have been experiencing alot of changes both mentally and physically. Sometimes these "changes" get the best of me and...well...things happen. I wish there was a magic pill to take all this away but I'm told it's "natural". I'd like to give Mr. Natural a swift kick in the teeth right now but would that really get me anywhere?
***** I'd like to thank Catherine here for being patient with me when I called her about my paper shredder dilemma. You are a peach Catherine and I feel another call to you coming up in the near future!*****
I also want to say I feel absolutely no remorse for what I've done with the little bluebird on linen. In fact I felt a sense of relief when the shredder froze up and I had to quickly hit the reverse button. I might have smiled a little...maybe. This does not mean I have given up on that chart. I will probably stitch it again but not with so many color changes. I was really going nuts with all that, wasn't I?
I have not abandoned my stitching all together. I dragged this big 'ol stand out of the back bedroom and began stitching on it once again.....
I don't know if you can see it here well enough but if you look just behind my head in that little blue glass thing hanging from my lamp you can see my scissors stuck in there. It's a convenient place to keep them.
I am almost done with the F block as you can see here. I have stitched the Flag, Fox, Flowers, and Flamingo and I'm working on the Fish in the lower right-hand corner. G-block, here I come!!
I sent Masterchief outside with the camera the other day to take pictures of the flowers, etc...
These Gerbera daisy's do well in the front flower bed. They tolerate the hot afternoon sun and are SO beautiful, don't you think?
Let me tell you about our lonesome tobacco plant. I walk almost every morning as soon as I wake up for about an hour down the road. I saw this lonely little tobacco plant that had obviously fallen off a truck on the way to the field around here. I felt so sorry for it that I had Masterchief stop along the road while we were out to pick it up. It would have died! I don't smoke anymore (YAY)...and neither does Masterchief (YAY) but I still felt sorry for this little plant that would die if I didn't rescue it. So we planted it at the sunny side of our house and one day it will grow up to be big like it's little lost friends in the big fields just down the road. Besides......if this menopause thing gets the best of me I'll just go out to the side lawn and roll myself a big fat one! :o)
I guess that's about it for today's post my friends. I can't begin to tell you how guilty I feel for not being the model blogger. I thing about posting almost every day and then my mind wanders off to...whatever...
I browse through my posts almost daily and leave comments when I feel I can.
Now remember: leave a comment on THIS POST only to have a chance to win my one year blogaversary gift-a-way. I'll just quickly say here that the pot ($) has gone up since Masterchief came in the house from his man-cave. My goodness, he is a most generous man! (I promise NO BBQ SAUCE unless you specifically request it). Sheesh....I feel like a lawyer talking really fast right now.
Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to visit with me today. I wish each and every one of you lived within a few miles of me so I could visit you ALL!!
