August 26, 2006 trip to property

I got off work early enough yesterday that Scott and I were able to go up to our property for awhile. Scott cut a few trees and then mowed the area we haven't been able to get back into since buying the property. The more time we spend up there and the more we do on the property the more we just want to get moved up there and stay. I got to see and hold a box turtle yesterday as well as a very fast moving small brown snake and a walking stick that was about 8 inches long. I can hardly wait to spend hours discovery all the floral and fawny that we have on our place. I also hear want sounded like a coyote howling off in the woods. Well got to get into work; just going in for 4 or 5 hours to stock.

I am so glad that with September Fall arrives and cooler weather. I hate the heat and humidity of the Summer months. I enjoy Fall colors best with the deep reds, burnt oranges and dark browns. Such wonderful earthy colors. I wish we were all ready living up on our property and that we were planning a BIG garden for next summer. We are trying to get some things done around here to prepare this house for selling next year. As much as I enjoy my job most days I am thinking more and more of returning home once we get moved out to the country. I miss a clean house and yard; Scott is doing his bext to help around the house and thanks to him it's not a complete dissaster area. But I miss my baking and crafting time and I have so many incredible items to use up in my sewing room right now. Time will tell.

Ribbon Embroidery

OK... I now have a new hobby/addiction! Ribbon embroidery! I am thoroughly enjoying learning all about it and practicing the stitches with less expensive ribbon. I think I will add silk ribbon to my Christmas list this year. On the above block I added the 3 "spider web" roses to this block; it is also part of the CQRR that I am currently in.

I have so many hobbies/interests that I can never get too bord. I sew, crochet, quilt, garden, scrapbook, and interesting craft that catches my eye I like to at least try. I am currently involved in a crazy quilt round robin and am learning about silk ribbon embroidery and beading. Such a lovely craft. I made the button heart on the above picture and had a lot of fun adding all the beads to it.

Much Needed Rest

I was finally able to get some much needed rest yesterday and last night. I am ready to go back into work with a little more of my "normal" high energy. THANK GOODNESS! I hate getting tired, stressed and depressed... I HATE weepy days. Hopefully they are behind me at least for awhile.

I got up yesterday with the intention of doing the mountain of laundry and watching sappy movies on the TV. That did not work out as the washer is dead again and had a load of wet dark clothes inside it - YUCK! So I sorted everything into black trash bags and when Greg got up he and I went up the road to the little laundry mat and washed most everything - ran out of quarters before I ran out of dirty clothes. The repair man will be out sometime Tuesday. We will have to work him around Scott's re-check at Dr. Myatich for his hernia repair. I'm hoping that he has healed correctly and won't require anything more but we will wait and see. Scott feels that they missed a sceond hernia and that he will need another surgery to repair that - I'm hoping he is wrong.

Our garden is in a bad state at the moment and needs some SERIOUS weeding but it's SO HOT here and the humidity is awful. I keep hoping for some rain to clean and cool the air a bit.

New Beginnings!

Well Tiffany is back as our manager and I am hoping that things will smooth out and that the work environment will improve. I'm so tired and stressed and so ready for a nice long vacation.
