I logged on to WordPress tonight and saw my little notification that said ” You registered on WordPress.com five years ago today.” Holy crap…it’s been five years? Where did the time go? Thanks to everyone who still stops by and reads my words. 🙂 I never thought anybody really would, I’m glad I was wrong. Happy Blogiversary!
It’s been a little crazy the past few days. I put “the post” on Facebook about doTERRA and the workshops I will be offering. Fingers crossed that this goes well and I can quit my waitress job, well…..I probably would still go in on Thanksgiving or if there was a big party. I have three people so far who are coming to the bath salt workshop, I am hoping to have a few more by the weekend.
The big news around this town is that Stevie Nicks is heading this way and there are a couple of us from work who are planning on going. Two concerts in one year…after 1989 that’s kind of a record for me. 1986-1989 were my concert years and yes I realize I am dating myself. SB is always trying to dress me like Stevie Nicks, maybe I should let her pick out my outfit that night?
Yesterday I went and picked up the shower present I ordered for my cousin’s wife. I don’t even know when the shower is so I wasn’t in any hurry. The husband half of my embroidery place had to have a quadruple bypass and the story from point A to B was crazy. My advice….don’t have a heart attack at a hospital by the beach. Shame on that doctor who told her that her husband would die on the jet back to the big clinic in Ohio. The mean doctor’s hospital has a 30% survival rate on that surgery, what a jerk! Thankfully he is okay and back to work. This is what they made for me…
Hopefully I don’t put it in too safe of a place….I hate when I forget where I put something. The baby isn’t due until November so I am guessing the shower will be in late September or October? I have the most important gift purchased so I feel like I accomplished something.
This year may be the year of the sweater crafts for me. I went to MH’s house today and she flew through this poncho. I have five more to cut and piece on my own and then back to her house for the serger.
She flew through the serging part, no pinning just serging. SB’s birthday gift is my pattern for the others. That means I have until mid August to get the next five cut up. This is the front of her poncho…
It was almost 90 degrees today and we were playing with wool. She made this one in about and hour and a half…start to finish. I will need at least two more trips to her house to finish the others. I will not be as fast serging one together. SB and I always try and make our presents and while technically I didn’t make it, it was my idea and I picked the sweaters? I think she will like it.
My little buddy came over tonight for our Outlander Wednesday and I made spicy chicken salad on croissants. It was pretty tasty, the girl even wants me to make more. I am feeling awfully bloated….could it be the mayo? I don’t even want to list the things I love that include mayonnaise….deviled eggs….BLT’s…..chicken salad. Oh boy!
That has been my week so far. I have a couple of non wool sweater projects that I am thinking about. I would really like to empty the sweater totes in their entirety. Part of me thinks this wool thing might stick so that tote may have to stay. It’s getting harder to find 100% wool these days so it may take me a while to fill the tote back up……Zia
