Took a little while....

...but it did end up being a productive day! It was cloudy, rainy, stormy...all day...until very late in the day the sun did finally peek out. So glad I ran errands on Monday instead of putting it off a day as the thought had crossed my mind. Monday turned out to be beautiful even though it started out gloomy! But anyways....I had my list in my mind of things I wanted to do yesterday but I just couldn't seem to get motivated to get started on them....don't ask me what I done between the hours of getting up out of bed & noon. Besides sitting here at this thing & meandering from room to room for whatever reasons, I didn't do was so gloomy out...pouring down rain...I really just wanted to curl up in my chair & do nothing all day! But, I knew I couldn't do that & finally found some motivation! My sisters birthday is today so beign the nice sister that I am, I made cupcakes for her to take to work. ***HAPPY BIRTHDAY DENNI!!!***
Once I got them done, I got the other things done as I'd hoped...couple of alteration pieces & then Monday night I finished stitchin' up another little cross-stitch number so last evening, I got both finished up into little somethin's. I will be posting the finished pieces to my etsy shop later today!

Both of these designs are by Primitive Betty....I just love her designs & don't know why it has taken me so long to work these up. I really enjoyed working on these counted cross stitch pieces & I look forward to doing more.
Well, John is passing thru home for the day & he's already waiting on me at the truck stop to pick him up so I'd better get off this thing & get myself ready to go!

Hope you all have a wonderful & productive day!!

Can you believe I was silly enough to venture out in all that rain yesterday. I decided it was to bad to get any yard work done, so I would get the shopping knocked out. Big mistake. Even with a raincoat and umbrella, I was drenched and had to wait in most store fronts for the rain to slow, so I could make a mad dash to the car. I was a mess. Today seems like it is going to be pretty warm despite the weather mans words. Can you believe how early things have greened up and blossemed out. It think we are about 2 to 3 weeks ahead of last year. I need to be transplanting so much stuff and I just don't have the time. I have so many other things I want to accomplish first. Things are really growing fast. I think I am going to work in the house some this morning and let it warm up abit more before I venture out. I need to focous on the taxes, its getting near and I still haven't done my part yet. Better get busy, Shanda
