I do try to sit and update this blog daily – really I do. Then something comes up and I need to run off and take care of it and the blog gets forgotten for another day.
For those of you who use hand or over-dyed floss, how do you store it?
I don’t have many over-dyed flosses. Mainly because I’m cheap. But the flosses I do have are stored on the card they came on and in a ziplock bag. Inventive, huh?
Speaking of overdyed flosses, I am working diligently on Leslie’s round robin, which is completely done with overdyes. It is going painfully slow. Nobe because of the overdyes, but because I am trying that thing (and I don’t remember what it’s called) where you put your needle between the threads to ensure they lay flat. I have never done that on a project before and while the results are fantastic, I am not getting the speed behind me that I usually have. I am an impatient person and this is certainly a lesson for me! lol!
On to other things. I have spent the last couple of days in the car, driving to Kingston. My SIL had a doctor’s appointment there on Tuesday and the girls and I went along for the ride – which meant an early morning wake up (gasp – sacrelidge in the summer!!!!) and loads of coffee.
Yesterday Scott had an appointment there and I went along for the ride – which meant another early morning wake up on a summer day; cue the coffee. We had a wonderful day wandering around town and checking out some very cool shops. I had no idea this city was so eclectic – right up my alley!
We then went for lunch in Napanee. We went to a cute British pub that really wasn’t very British and they only had three beers on tap (which in my opinion for a British pub is just as bad as waking up early in the summer time). We had two very dry sandwiches for lunch after I embarassed myself. I asked for a rueben (my absolute favourite sandwich of all time), with vegetable soup and she said, sorry, we are all out of pastrami. Ok, I said, I will have turkey soup instead. Fortunately the wall was nearby for which I could bang my head. 😉
The day was loads of fun and it was nice to spend this quality time with Scott. Especially since it was our anniversary. Hee. We actually got some time to sit and figure out a plan for the next little while to get us out of this rut we are in. We have come to the conclusion that neither one of us is happy living here – we were never happy in Ontario. We have gone over our options and I finally feel like we are moving forward. After our vacation we will be pushing towards are plan. Which I can’t of course share with you until we at least tell a few people who are involved. But things feel better now, and that is a good start.
Today my joy is our excitement for our vacation! This is the first time we have gone anywhere without a fixed schedule – the only thing we have scheduled is the time we need to be back. We leave tomorrow to visit some friends of ours and some family then on Sunday we start the 13 hour drive to Saint John. I don’t know if I will be able to post anything until we get back, but I do promise photos! Until then…
