  1. It's been a crazy week but I wanted to pop in and say hello. I hope you are all doing well.
  2. Hello everyone, The day started out with rain and thunder and lighting but is sunny out now. I went to church, got wet leaving there even with an umbrella. Stopped at the grocery store where my sandal broke and I walked out of the store barefoot, luckily I was at the check out counter when it happened. On the way to the store my daughter called and asked if we could change our mini vacation dates because her husband's nephew's first communion is the Saturday that we would be gone. So I had to call to change the reservation which was a process because I booked thru booking.com but it went smoothly and let me change the dates, the reservation is non-refundable and the small print said the date couldn't be changed but there were rooms available so the hotel agreed to the change. Then I had to make calls to find a sub because our on-site sub is not available on the new days. Tomorrow I have to check with the teacher who covers before care when I'm not there, hopefully he is available. Sorry for the rambling, I was feeling a litttle stressed. I spent Friday night and yesterday sewing outfits for my granddaughter for the vacation I just need to do some handwork like buttons which I plan to sit on the sofa and do this afternoon. I hope you are all having a great day.
  3. Good morning, I slept in until 7:30 this morning, I was awake twice before that but went back to sleep both times. Mary Jo your omelet sounds delicious. I'm finishing laundry and spending the day in my sewing room. Hope you all have a great day.
  4. Those are beautiful!
  5. Happy Friday! Nothing planned for this weekend so I will be stitching and relaxing, of course there is laundry to do too I had my little granddaughter yesterday so I am behind on posts but I hope everyone is doing well. Have a great evening and a great weekend.
  6. They are adorable!
  7. Hello everyone, Nothing exciting going on here. Worked, air conditioner is still not working. Then stopped at Walmart and Joanns on the way home. This site has good info about needles. https://www.schmetzneedles.com/all-about-needles/ I change the needle in my machine after each project or two. And pinterest is great for sewing projects. And now I am off to my sewing machine. Hope everyone has a great evening.
  8. Hello, Today started out chilly by south Florida standards but was really nice once the sun came up and warmed us up a bit. I worked as usual, well almost as usual, the air conditioning in my classroom is still not working, a week and a half now, I'm not a happy camper. Then I came home and made reservations for a mini vacation next month . 3 days at Disney with my youngest daughter, son-in-law and littlest granddaughter. Now to get some cute Disney outfits made for the little princess. That's about it for me. Have a great night everyone.
  9. Very nice!
  10. Katy, prayers for your family. Not much going on here today just work and a stop at Walmart. It was a very fun and busy weekend and I'm paying for it today, a couple of times I thought I was going to doze off in my classroom today but I managed to stay awake. I hope you all have a good evening.
  11. Hello, I had the news on earlier and the weather is crazy in many places so I can't complain about the rain that we're suppose to get later today, actually it's been dru here so the rain will be good. The wind is that is bringing the rain is giving my sinus a fit though. I hope all of you are staying safe. My granddaughter's birthday party yesterday was a big hit but I'm a little tired today. I have another party to go to this afternoon but I should be able to relax a little more at this one since I won't be chasing a 2 year old around on bounce houses and swings. I went to church this morning and now I'm doing a little laundry and sewing until time to leave for the party. That's my weekend in a nut shell. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
  12. Happy Friday!!! Tribble, the pictures are great and you are braver than me with that snake. It's going to be a busy weekend with birthday parties to attend both days but it will also be a lot of fun. I'm finishing a little tote bag to go with the gift for Sunday's party. That's about it for me. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
