Lazy morning

I have the morning off and don't have to start getting ready for work until about 1:00. So I am being lazy. I spent all day yesterday running errands, and doing chores, so this morning, I'm kicked back in the recliner watching Desperate Housewives on DVD while putting in some cross stitching on the second panel for the baby blanket. I have to finish this panel and do 1 more, and then I can do all the puff stitching between the panels, and then I'm done. This pattern is going to come out beautifully - but there are so many details in it; it's a very time consuming pattern. But I love it.

Little man is in his room playing games. It seems like he's feeling better today. He was pretty stuffy yesterday. All out of sorts.

I'm on day 4 of quitting smoking. The patch is helping a lot - along with a lot of prayer. But it's far from easy. And while the cravings aren't as bad as they were on that first day, I find myself being more irritable. Not bad at all, but just irritable. But it's okay - I WILL quit smoking. Things at work are going alright. We have a big store meeting on Saturday - something about all the rental terms changing. I think I'm going to make a new scones recipe to take along. Bad enough that we've all got to give up part of our Saturday, might as well get some yummy food in exchange. I found a new scone recipe online that I think just might do the trick, it looks pretty yummy. Plus I'm working on a design for a twilight themed cake for the New Moon midnight release. It's going to be so much fun.

Other than that, it's business as usual at my house. But for now, I think I'm going to watch a few more episodes, and put in a few more stitches, before I have to start getting ready for work. TTFN all.

It's been too long

I'm always appalled when I log in and see how long ago my last post was. I wish I was able to devote more time to blogging. I do actually enjoy doing it. Oh well, such is life.

We got to spend an extended weekend with my grandparents last weekend, which was really nice. I miss them all the time, and really wish that they lived closer. But it's always so much fun to see them with little man. Unfortunately, the hubby spent most of the visit sick. He came down with a stomach bug right after we got there, and then as soon as we get home - the munchkin gets it. Poor little guy. But they're both doing better now.

The dogs had a great time staying with the parents. And we get to puppy-sit their precious little pom this weekend so they can go away for a few days. I can't wait to see them all together. And since it occurs to me that I have yet to post a picture of my new best friend, here's one for you.

So precious.

I did finally scratch out some time to get a new listing up in the shop. I have one more piece completed and ready to be photographed, but I keep waiting on good lighting to get my pictures of it. And of course, the next piece is well underway.

So that's life at my house lately. Now it's time to get off of here and get some things done before I have to get ready for work. I get to work an extra long shift tonight courtesy of a conference call that is scheduled to run longer than normal. Fun times.
