It's Wardrobe Changeover Time

It's the time of the year that I hate the most (besides when "they" take my hour away) and it is time to say goodbye to the sundresses, shorts, tanks, capris, bathing suites and, perhaps most painful of all, the flip flops. If you live in the North, you know what I mean. If you are in the South, this is puzzling to you. Trust me, it's nothing you need to know about. It is the time of year when I start plotting my return to the South. And, believe you me, I will. In a few years, I am thinking. So, I spent the day saying adios to Lilly Pulitzer and other cute things. Depressing. Hello to turtlenecks, sweatshirts, fuzzy socks, sweaters and flannel pj's. I would like to say it's nice to see you, but I would totally be lying.

They Said The "S" Word

They being weather forecasters and the "s" word being snow. Already? Well, I guess it is October. Wait, it's the almost November! They said by the end of the month we would see some flakes. I guess the sooner it gets here, the sooner it will be over. Have I mentioned a time or ten that I really, really don't like winter? If I had my way, we would be moving back to TN but last year they got more snow than we did! I guess I will just have to try to get used to it. But, it's been 8 years and so far, it's still bad. I might have a finish or two coming up at the end of the weekend! Stay tuned!

Inching Forward

Well, we are getting closer to our son's departure. He leaves on Nov 4 and we will go to Troy, MI to say goodbye to him on the morning of the 5th. I promise I will not use this blog to post sad comments. Any mom or dad out there will know how I feel. I like to keep these things inside, which is probably why I have problems with my blood pressure! LOL! Anyway, I have had a job change and now I work for Early Head Start as a Home Visitor and Family Advocate. I have been at it for awhile and the change is good. Very good. It's nice to use the degree that has cost me a fortune! I still am finding time to stitch. That will never change. I think now, more than ever, I will need to stitch. It clears my mind. Since I work out of my car, I have some down time between families. I am going to try to take my stitching with me and get going on some projects that need finishing. I will take some pictures of the place that is close to my work where I plan to stitch. I have the prettiest commute to work ever! So peaceful. It's where I do a lot of my thinking. Oh, no! Not thinking! Sometimes that gets me in trouble!! If you are still hanging on to this blog, I thank you. At least I don't post about every living thing like some bloggers like to do. Sheesh! Some of them are so very "chatty". Not this one! I am lucky to post every 6 months, but I might try to do better. No promises, though. This is the thought of the week - go forth and be kind!
