My daughter has the flu (oink oink) - I will not be going away this weekend. I really could have used a break, but I know that I couldn't leave her and that my little guy will probably get it as well.

So, I'm a pretty shy gal. I've been having major back and neck troubles over the last week and my DH pinched a nerve in his neck a couple of nights ago. We just recently started paying for extended health coverage - which includes a small sum towards massage therapy. Can you guess where this is headed?

His name is Charles and I will be spending a glorious hour on his table tomorrow from 1:30-2:30pm. I'm gonna have to take my shirt off aren't I? It's OK - DH's bliss is named Sandra. Though sadly for him, there won't be a happy ending.

After that? I'm headed up North for my weekend stitching retreat. I'm so excited I'm not sure I'll sleep tonight. It's going to be rather grand. I'll have pictures on Monday!

unfortunately I'll play...


Saw this on another's blog: Type your first name preceded by the word “unfortunately” into Google and see what comes up.


Unfortunately Caroline:

- unfortunately Caroline's bikini bottoms also got toasted
- unfortunately, Caroline's dreams of a relaxing and healing vacation go up in smoke when the spa's owner, Claudia De Vries, is found murdered in one of her own mud baths!
- unfortunately, Caroline's glorious time with Ridge was short-lived as she was soon diagnosed with leukemia and was told she only had months to live.
- unfortunately Caroline just went through a big growth spurt
- unfortunately Caroline's attempts to settle in Tunisia failed
- unfortunately Caroline died three months later

Well, hopefully I enjoyed my time in Tunisia toasting my bikini bottoms.........

Bread and such....

Have you ever been so proud of yourself and just had to tell someone? Based on opinions around the innernets I ordered this book: Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. It really, truly was stupidly easy and looks amazing (taste test to come later tonight with dinner) Here's the bread:

We can't wait to eat it!

I'm involved in a SAL with my LNS and we're stitching an older freebie from Papillon Creations "How Does Your Garden Grow?" It's a mystery SAL and our fearless leader is handing out one part each month. I have only a few more days to finish up the first part or I'll be behind - so that's what I'll be stitching tonight. The specialty stitches have been really cool to work and the instructions are very clear.

Happy Monday y'all.
