Toasted or Untoasted????

How do you like your bread on a BLT? I prefer mine to be toasted; and that's what I decided sounded good for dinner tonight. :) So, after work I stopped and got some lettuce and a tomato and some bacon. It was delicous..:) I haven't made much progress on my gingerbread man, after I post this I'm gonna stitch til bedtime and hopefully make some progress. I came across a new Cross Stitch site last week Stitch and Frog, I found a kit that I've been looking for for a while now and decided to take a chance and order it; I always order from 123 and Anita's, I'm a little leary to order from somewhere new; I've ordered from other places only to wait 3 weeks or longer for my order and I don't know about you but when I make a Cross Stitch order I'm "sweatin the mail" waiting anxiously for my new bunch of "goodies". I'm like a Cross Stitch "Junkie" waiting for my next "fix"...LOL I know I'm not alone in this ladies..:) In my order from Anita she sent me some Boin size 28 needles as a thank you, I thought that was so sweet of her. Well anyways, I ordered this Trilogy kit and got it in 4 days (counting the holiday). It was packaged well and I am satisfied. I will still go to Anita first and then 123 and use Marty at Stitch & Frog for emergencies; she has some patterns the others don't have; I have a wish list started already..I'm going to "try" to cut way back on my ordering stash next year and stitch some of what I already have. I'm sure I'll still get the new ornaments and a few things like that; but this year I've kind of been a bad girl and gone way beyond what I should have..:) Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgivig with your families; I was alone, I worked and we were so busy, I was so tired, I just came home and ate a little something and a piece of pumpkin pie I brought home from work and relaxed. My friend Rhonda invited me to her brothers and my other friend invited me to her families, but to be honest I was so tired and my knee was killing me, so I just came on home. Well ladies off to stitch...:) why don't you join me??? Hugs, Shar

Had a nice day....alone..:)

I hope everyone is having fun and getting all ready for the "Big Turkey Day"..:) I'm working from 9:30 til 4:00. For those of you who are new to my Blog; I am a waitress. I found it sad last year that we were so busy on Thanksgiving; don't get me wrong, I like the good money I made, but I found it sad that so many people don't cook on Thanksgiving like the "Olden Days" (as my girls call it..LOL) When I was a child NO restaurants were even open on Thanksgiving. Everything has become so darn commercial; now their starting "pre-Black Friday" sales??? Doesn't that just ruin the idea? I didn't plan on going this far with this topic, sorry just got on a Yesterday, Haydens mom (my DD Heather) came and got him and they went to spend a few days with some friends in Springs, then their coming back here Sunday and she's gonna stay here with me til they get on their feet. I think their all coming over Thanksgiving and cooking while I'm working :)'ll be fun. So, I have REALLY been enjoying my alone time these past few days. I could live alone, it doesn't bother me at all!! I started my Gingerbread Ornie last night, haven't stitched much on it today. Here's a little stash I got today..:) Im late posting my TULSA.. I went to the Pharmacy and picked up some meds, and then went down to my favorite shop down in Old Pueblo. They have EVERYTHING there and everytime I go there I spend a few hours just looking around. I picked up a braclet for Heather and a nice pair of earrings for my friend Dorelee at work; her Birthday is tomorrow. And I got me a Yankee Candle, little red cardinal and a braclet. There is a little bakery next door to Seabells (my store) and I went in and picked up this adorable Carrot Cake for my desert; it was so pretty and looked so good....but it was...nasty...LOL I took one bite and threw the rest away. I wasted $4.65. I hope everyone is safe and has a wonderful Thanksgiving.. Hugs, Shar
