Happy New Year's Day Y'all!

My New Year's Resolution.................

To be a better friend, a better blogger, a better wife, a better Momma, all I can do is try :)

2013 has been a hard year for me physically, emotionally and it has been very tiring. I have been injured and my PsA/Sjogrens Syndrome has caused me many anxious days of grief! Ugh! 

Torn hamstring has been the bane of my existence since May. I never thought that exercising would have done me in! lol I haven't been able to really get back to exercising in months. I just had another MRI yesterday and go back on the 3rd, with hopefully good news!

I am trying to knit more as it doesn't seem to cause the eye strain. I miss my cross stitch so bad, I can't see the holes in the linen very well, the blurriness is getting worse and it makes me sad. 

Hubby is in SC again, and this is a quiet night here in Dacula! I'm trying my best to stay awake for the New Years dropping of the ball!

Where does the time go?

I am such a bad blogger! So much has occurred and I am overwhelmed! Y'all know I had some hip issues and well, ended up having to have a procedure on the hip in August. I struggled thru the surgery and the post op period, it was an experimental procedure called PRP injection. Lets just say, I may not do the second one! Lol. They take your blood and centrifuge it, then they inject that back into the injured area and cross your fingers! No pain meds to help ease the pain of trying to reach the hip joint, plus I had to be free of all my PsA/Sjogrens meds for 7 days before the procedure. So I'm sure you can guess, a flare occurred and the pain was horrible. It's been 3 and a half weeks and I still can't sleep on my right side! Ugh! Rehab is ordered, but John has been out of work for 15 weeks, and I just can't afford my 55 dollar copay twice a week! Double ugh!
Keep your fingers crossed that his company gets the bid! They've been told they have about a week's worth, just waiting to see if they win the next job bid!
Thank goodness we did have money saved, but our account is getting pretty skinny! Lol
One to good news though, I won a $50 gift certificate at Laurel's Stitchery shop online! I've waited until after market to shop so I can get some of the newest goodies that are out there!
The bottom pic is after surgery and I didn't dare show the pic with tears! 
My dogs Huckleberry and Wally have kept me company during my recovery time! I'm finally back to work, but work is helping me out when I have to mop the floors! Thanks to a great cafe staff that really does like me :)
This is so long, that I'll break for now and post more later!
Hugs from me!

My summer is drifting away......

It's been totally crazy how time just keeps slipping away! I know I have been very busy and man I need a break! I worked so hard to get my sister in law to be's pool up and running, 2 weeks of almost non stop work, and I can proudly say "it's ready"! 
We surprised my brother for his 44th birthday by having a pool party, he really was surprised!
Onto the stitching front! I'm working on the Hometown Holiday village series from LHN, my goal is to have at least 3 to 4 completed by Christmas time for my mantel! 
Health wise I'm doing fine except for the pesky PsA/Srogrens Syndrome that plagues me. I have developed bursitis in my hip, physical therapy is tough, it hurts! I have been advised that I shouldn't walk anymore! What the heck! I can swim ( but to do that I gotta drive 30 minutes one way ), I can buy a bicycle, but I just spent money on a new elliptical machine!
All I know is arthritis is very mean and I hate it! Ok, my pitiful vent is over!
Good news though, my son Jason has got engaged to Aliyiah, I fear I may have mis spelled her name! It will be a long engagement since she is on a mission trip to Africa. Time will tell! But she makes my son very happy and that's all that matters! They tease me by telling me they are gonna give me Oreo babies! I told them, I love Oreos, but they need to wait before any grandchildren are brought in this world! I'm not ready to be a Nana! Lol
Here's a few pics from the weekend! Enjoy and hugs from DaisyGirl!

Summer fun in St. Augustine!

What a nice trip, even though it rained everyday except for Monday! Lol 
We had a really great time, very relaxing, I loved the hot tub! I was in that sucker every night! :)
Did I cross stitch at all down there? Just a tiny bit! Not much, cause I kept falling asleep on that luxurious bed! It made us realize that we need a new mattress ! 
Here's a few pictures of our trip!

Happy Mother's Day!

It's been a good here! The boys got me chocolate, grilled dinner for me and did my dishes! I cut the grass too! It was my workout for the day :)
We are down to 8 more days of school and I'm getting excited! Wahoo for me!
We are heading back to St. Augustine again! We leave for Florida on June 2nd, so I gotta get as much sun as possible cause I will burn if I don't! Tanning bed here I come! 
Hugs from me,

Wonderful day spent with Elizabeth !

Today has been spent with my niece Elizabeth, and it has been fabulous! Went and picked her up and off to the mall we went!
Lunch, shopping, Starbucks and back home to grill out burgers! I hated taking her home!
Sunday will be my last day off! Boohoo! Spring break is just about over for me! Be the good news is that we only have 28 more school says till summer! :)
I plan to cross stitch on my LHN project! I just love this series!
Hugs to all! Pray for guidance for us to make a life changing event! Details later as things progress!

Ladybug Jig

This is finished! Now I gotta find a cute frame for it! It's such a happy pattern, it makes me smile when I look at it!
It's spring break here and today will be another pollen filled day! I know we need rain, but I'm hoping it will rain on the weekend. John and Jacob are going fishing at the lake tomorrow and I want them to have a great male bonding time. With Johnny being out of the state most of the year so far, I know the boys don't spend anytime with their Dad. They are not little anymore and I just want them to remember their Dad, and how hard he works to keep the family living the lifestyle that we are used too. Momma works too, but Dad provides for all the extras. :)
I'm stitching on Hometown Holiday and I'm loving it! I'll post a pic of that later today!
Hugs for now,

Tuckered out pooch!

We've had a busy day of training! It's time to sleep! See y'all tomorrow!
Hugs from Huckleberry!

New phone again ! So it's gonna be easier to post!

Huckleberry is growing so sweetly! He weighs 4.1oz now, the Little punk is chewing everything in sight! Ugh! Lol
I've never had a puppy before so this is all new for me. Brutus was already potty trained when we rescued him. I'm so glad I saved his toys, cause Huckleberry loves on Brutus's favorite toy and it makes me happy that at least Huckleberry will remember his scent. Is that dumb?
Look at me, I'm crying like a little kid writing this! I'm such a goober!
I finished the ladybug! Wahoo! I'll take a picture and post it in a bit, I'm working on LHN's Holiday Hometown! I freaking love this!
I'm so glad I'm back with a new iPhone , still don't really know how to use it, but I'll learn!
Hugs from DaisyGirl!
Ps: it's spring break for me! Whee!!!!!

Huckleberry is loving being here!

Huckleberry has fitted in nicely here in the Bennett household. He has 5 people that dote on him. Especially his momma!  Lol.  I just bought him a doggie day bed! Now all he needs to do is get a little bigger to hop up on it. Lol
Still working on my stocking, pulled out my knitting and am knitting a scarf. So tomorrow I'll post some knitting pics too!
Hope everyone has a wonderful night!

Huckleberry and my Momma!

Nothing makes my Momma's day then a snuggle with a Huckleberry!  She helped make him feel better since he got his first shots today.
He weighed 2lbs! Wahoo! He didn't like the vet poking him though, Lol.
Still working on my stocking. Hope to be finished by the weekend.
Hugs y'all!

Stocking from Blackbird Designs!

Changing the words from Noel to Love for Valentines Day decor!

Love this little puppy!

It totally amazes me how he has captured my heart. I seriously didn't want another dog after my Brutus. But after time, the heart heals and gets lonely for a little pitter patter of tiny paws! And Huckleberry sure has tiny paws! Lol
I'll post a picture of my cross stitch in a Sec! Learning to blog from my phone is awesome!

What a day!  Little Huckleberry is getting used to the cats! Lol. I was sweating it with Boo Boo Kitty!
I need to post a picture of my Valentine project tomorrow,  plus I started a new knitting scarf project! Everyone is making me want to knit!
Hugs till tomorrow!  Wish me luck tonight that the puppy doesn't cry to much! He's only 5 weeks!
