I've been stitching, really I have.............

I've been working on Olga at home on my needlework system. Plus stitching on Eat Locally from Lizzie Kate! Our cafeteria is participating in a new program called Farm to School! It's about providing fresh produce direct to our schools from local farmers! August has been Watermelons, September is Bell Peppers. I want this sitting on my desk, I know it will look cute.

Work has been so busy and work is hard. We are short 2 workers and no new workers in sight. At least we are able to use the throw away trays, we are trying to look into a recycle program, but with costs involved, I'm sure with our cut backs, we might not get the funds to do the program. Oh how I wish the economy would snap back. Things would get so much better!

See y'all later!
ps: Look at this beautiful ribbon trim I ordered! I so love trim of all kinds!

Annie Get Your Gun!

Wahoo! Look at my new gun! I like to skeet shoot and Johnny bought me a new shotgun made to fit me! I'm the proud owner of a Mossberg 510 Mini Super Bantam 20 gauge shotgun. I will need to learn how to hold it right handed though. Shooting left handed has probably caused me not to hit as many targets as I'd like.

I did stitch a little last night! Thank goodness for that! My Olga cat is coming along nicely, I'll post a picture tomorrow.

Well, it's late once again and 7am comes awfully early for me! hahaha

Back to School Exhaustion!

I just had to borrow this clip art from my sisters' blog. It sums up how I feel today! I am so tired! My dogs are barking very loudly tonight! I am not even gonna go to stitch night. I will be resting on the couch for the evening! I have more hours right now since we are short 2 workers in my cafeteria. So I might be working for a while with longer hours. I just hope I can keep up!

I haven't stitched in 4 days! Yikes to that thought! I need to get back to stitching everyday again. I've got very ambitious Christmas presents in mind.

Jacob is away on his adventure, he has called me once so far. He is suppose to call me tonight. I've got alot of info for him from the college. He's gonna be slammed when he gets home! He comes home on the 16th, money due on the 17th, move in on the 18th, plus sometime in there is Bear Essentials that he has to do! what this means for me is that I will be rushed trying to get him moved into his dorm in less then 2 days! Ugh!!!!!

Well, I'm so tired I can't keep my eyes open! I'm signing off for the night!

Hugs to all,

Stitch Night and more.....

Monday night was stitch-in, and as usual, fun was had by all! Look at Margaret's kitty calendar monthly! Love it!

School is upon us once again, I've been busy getting these 3 bulletin boards made, our theme this year is Cat in the Hat/Dr. Seuss. I'm so excited to have a fun theme to work with this year!

Jacob is getting ready to leave for a cross country road trip with 6 other friends! Yikes! Lord, please watch over these young men as they sow their wild oats! Boys, please DO NOT DO ANYTHING STUPID! If I get a phone call from the cops, Jacob you are grounded for life!!!!!

Must breathe! I'm so strung out with worry over this trip. I know he's 18, but you have to remember the rocks/train incident, I'm having a hard time with me thinking they will get into trouble again! Send me good vibes friends! I sure need them! He will be gone for 10 days!

I start Remicade on Aug. 17th! I'm excited to be starting this new med finally. My hands and feet hurt so bad! Always so stiff. :(

Well, Jacob needs to go pick up supplies for his trip, so we are off to Wally world!
