Becke, Had a great time with my friend Joyce. I got my flu shot. I am working on the faces in my angel couple stiitching project. Just about have them done.

 

It is cool here. In the fifties and may get into the 60's tomorrow.

 

I am really liking The Cuckoo's Calling. It is really good.

 

Not much else going on.

I'm keeping busy chasing Adaline around - that girl is FAST. It's nice when Jessica has a day off - Adaline LOVES to play with her!

Re: My to-be-read pile...

Becke,  I just finished The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith. It was really good. I love the characters. I really hope that there will be more of these books. I think this could be a great series.

Re: My to-be-read pile...

Becke, I was so surprised when I got a package of books from you. Thanks. it really made my day. I love the books.

 

Also I want to thank you for the very nice card you sent. It means a lot to me that you would send a card. Thank you for the very nice complaints about my cross stitching. I just love to do it. I was so happy when I found out that I won first place and Best in Show. It was only my third year. So I could hardly believe it. It was very nice that the judges thought that my work was good enough to get the first place and Best in Show.

 

I just love making cross stitch projects. To think that I made that with a piece of fabric, floss and a pattern. It still amazes me that I can do that. I love watching the pattern develop as I stitch it. To see hands and faces and other things come out as I stitch, WOW. I get so much satisfaction from making the projects I do.

 

Also thank you for the very kind words that I am very talented. I never think about it, I just stitch what I like and love. It is very nice to hear that people like what I make.

 

So again thank you for the books and the card. It really made my day. I was feeling a little down but that surprise package made me feel so much better.

 

Thank you, my friend,

I'm glad the surprise package cheered you up! I can't send the books every month, but I like to share them when I can.

 

I have double-decker cats in the dining room right now - Charlie is asleep on top of the table, and Casper is sound asleep under the table. So cute! Give Callie a scritch from me!

Re: My to-be-read pile...

Becke, Hi, I love the Winners. It was great. I am going out today with my friend Judy. We are best friends. We talk everyday. She is like a big sister to me.

 

She had a eye doctor appointment.

 

Then shopping and a late lunch or early supper.

 

Talk to you soon. I am also going to start reading Final Cut by Catherine Coulter and we got the new Patricia Cornwell-Dust. I put my name on it. Can't wait to read it.

 

I also have to start my book club book.

 

Talk to you later.

Re: My to-be-read pile...

Becke, I went out with my friend Judy yesterday. We had a great time. She took me to lunch and we had Chinese. It was a great surprise.

 

I help her get rabbit feed and she gives me money for helping her. We are best friends.

 

I just got the new Julia Quinn book.- The Summ of All Kisses. I think it will be great.

 

I am reading The Arrangement by Mary Balogh. It is good.

 

Cold this morning but going to warm up.

 

I am getting ready to go to work.

Becke, Hi, I am reading Final Cut by Catherine Coulter. I love her Savich and Sherlock books. They are really good.

 

I am going out with my friend Joyce today. I have an appointment at the eye doctor to check up on me after my catarct surgery. It is a three month check up. I am not happy with my glasses. I was told I would be 20 20 but I see better without them for the computer so I don't know what is going on. I guess I will find what is happening.

 

Also having lunch and shopping.

 

I will do some stitching too. I think I have a cold. I am feeling lousy.

Re: My to-be-read pile...

Becke, I know, I am not feeling bad just a lot of sneezing, some coughing and my nose is conjested.

 

I had a great day with my friend Joyce. We went to lunch then Dollar General. I then went to my eye doctor appointment. I was getting a three month check up on my eyes since the cataract surgery. I am going realy great. There is a very small amount of film on the right implant that the doctor is going to watch. They can remove that with a laser. So I am good for another six months unless I notice something happening.

 

We went to Wal-Mart. I got some stuff I need and some groceries.

 

We had a nice time together.

 

I am about done with Christmas shopping. I have most of my gifts. I have to get gift cards for my great nephew and great nieces. I have one gift to mail and get my Christmas cards ready too.

 

I will be staying in and stitching and taking care of whatever I have.

 

Talk to you soon.

I haven't started Christmas shopping. It's going to be a tight Christmas for us this year. At least the whole family will be together! Feel better soon!
