Nice day....

Well, I had a great day! I worked, my friend Desi and her boyfriend who also works there had a beautiful bouquet of mixed flowers sent to me, my bosses got me a very nice cake; they all sang to me :) then I came home and got Ashley and Scarlett and we went back and had a wonderful dinner; I had Ribeye & Ash had Grilled Chicken, we left there and went to the grocery store and got a few things then we came on home.

My mom just called; she lives in Ohio; we had a nice call except my cousin died yesterday of a massive heart attack; he was only 2 years older than me. I am 50 today. I hadn't seen him in years. I feel bad for his family. I need to get a card sent out tomorrow. I didn't get to stitch tonight; I wanted to. I spent too much time on this darn computer. LOL I tend to do that now and then. Me and Scarlett have a "fish tank" on facebook; and she loves when we feed them. :) This is a picture of us tonight feeding the fish. LOL Well, I have to get to bed; tomorrows my Friday, thank gosh, it's been a long week.

Thank you for all your sweet comments and Birthday wishes. Hugs, Shar

Happy Birthday to me!!!

I recieved my give away from Barbara yesterday and the picture doesn't do it justice at all!! It's beautful; thank you barbara.. I am 50 years old today. :( I don't know why this birthday bothers me so much. I guess it's like a "milestone" of some what? It's like a reality check; that my life isn't anywhere near where I thought it would be at this point of my life. I do have 2 beautiful healthy daughters; and 2 beautiful & healthy grandchildren to be thankful for.

I worked last night and was talking to a family about birthdays etc. and she's a massage therepist and gave me her business card w/50% off!! :) I've never had one so I'm going to call and make an appt. :) I can't wait. Well Scarlett's yelling for me; LOL so I better go. I'll update later today to let you all know how my day went.

Fun day w/Scarlett & stitching

I was off work today; me and Scarlett baked her first cake. :) She wasn't happy when grandma took the beater away from her. LOL Their leaving around the 24th of March; so I want to squeeze as much in with her as I can. I am going to save my money and look forward to going to Germany to visit them. I want to go visit castles and maybe France. Their going to Bamburg (?). We looked it up and it looks beautiful there.

I finished my Feb. Love this morning; I think I'm going to make it into a little pillow with beads on the seams; I saw it done on someones blog (don't remember whose; sorry) I may do that tonight; they today I started "Forgive quickly" this is such a fun & quick project. I don't have the colour thread it calls for (cupid) so I'm using CC's Manor Red and really love it; I"m going to finish ths as a pillow for my bed I believe. I won a give away today from "To Stitch or Not to Stitch" :) this is a picture of my prize. Thank you so very much Barbara I can't wait to get my prize; I love cherries :) Hope everyone is doing well and getting lots of stitching done; I know I have to get my challenge pieces and ornaments going; When the girls leave I'm sure I'll have a lot of extra time to stitch.
