A Finish, An Anniversary and a Count Down!
It's been a few days since I last posted so I thought I'd better pop in for a few.
As you can see from the above picture I am still working on my stitcheries. Actually, I stitched that one last year but never got around to framing it. So yesterday I painted a frame pink, sanded it and rubbed a bit of stain on it to tone it down a bit and wahla!
Valentine's day is a good ways off so I'll wrap it and put it up until then.
Oh, and speaking of Valentine's, this weekend marked our 17th wedding anniversary. ( Can't believe it's been that long!!) The kids spent the night at my parents on Saturday while hubby and I went out to dinner and then back home to an evening alone in peace and quiet
As for the countdown...only one more day until public school starts. BOOOOOO!!!!
I am in no way ready to end the summer or to begin school again. Katie and I aren't starting her homeschooling until Monday so we get a few extra days but I hate that the boys have to go now.
I guess there is no use in complaining...it sure won't change anything so I might as well just dig in and begin school and the countdown to summer 2012.
Before I leave, check out these rain pics from yesterday. I was sitting on my porch and it was sunny to my left but just a short distance away (and looking in front of me) on the hillside you could see rain coming down in sheets. Just in one little spot.
The humidity and the temperature continues to stay low here so it has been so pleasant. Night time temps. are in the low 60's which makes for a great night's sleep with the windows open. *Love It!*
Well that's all for now. I'm off to stitch a little before it's time to start supper.
Have a great day!
