Time flies!

Or rather, the weeks goes by quickly but the days are really long. DH is away on business again and is going to be gone a couple of weeks this time. These are the days when I think that we were crazy when we signed the kids up for all these activities. It's not too bad with the girls but I just can't see why 11 year old kids have to practice soccer 4 days a week, and that's not even including games. No wonder that kids burn out when they are 13! But it seems like all good organizations are doing the same thing so there's not a lot of options out there if you want your kid to play.

Enough whining!

I did do a double take last evening when I sat down to check my emails. Seriously, I thought that I was having some major issues with my sight. Everything looked really blurred all of a sudden and it actually took me a minute to figure out that my darling 3 year old had covered the whole screen with my Vaseline Lip Therapy. The effect is very psychedelic for sure, and that gunk is almost impossible to remove.

The kitchen is finished! It's now all green, even the rounded corners turned out ok after I spent an hour just taping them to get it just right. Funny, it just hit me yesterday that it's a very Shepherd's Bush green that I picked out. The shade is one of the greens that they use quite often, can't remember the exact # of the silk now but I have to check it out next time I stitch one of their kits up. So this will work out perfect since I'm hanging the Gatherer's in there in the eating nook when they are stitched up and framed. I just have 2 finished at the moment so I better get cracking. Harvest Moon is already hanging in there on one side of the window, maybe I should get and stitch Winter Moon and hang on the other side.

Anyways, I'm taking pictures at the moment but it just doesn't look alright yet. That Behr paint dries really slow so it looks like a patchwork quilt on the walls, usually it don't look real good for a week. Hard to work with that paint but it's excellent if you have pets or kids who are hard on walls. It dries hard and is very scrubable.

I'm still waiting for my beads from Stitching Bits and Bobs. Since I ordered several other items for my birthday at the same time so I'm sure she had to order in some of the things. Wonder if it will get here before I pay my Visa bill?

And I still haven't started my Gameboard Sampler! I haven't had the time to go in and pull out the threads and I just love working on The Sanctuary, it's just impossible to put it down. It's a pretty crooked scan, sorry, I have a hard time getting the fabric to work with me today.

ROFL!! Vaseline on the screen! And I agree with you; little kids sports activities are just way too much these days.
