And why do I have to go with it?
I can't believe we are more than half way through the month of February. I know its a short month, but must it go by so fast?
I've been really bad at doing anything this month. I sit at home and look at all kinds of WIP that are begging to be worked on, and I want to stitch, but the thought of having to actually pull something out just exhausts me, so I don't. I'm hoping to change that mind set this weekend and work on SOMETHING at home.
I've been pretty good about stitching on my lunch hour while watching Criminal Minds, although today I watch the last episode of the last season :( . Anyway, I decided I really didn't like the look of the green in the grass. The contrast between the two trees were a little too much, even though the colors were pretty close to the color of the canvas. It took me a whole lunch out to cut it all out, but I was really happy that I did. I'm still debating the yellow in the brick road. However haven't convinced myself that it's bad enough to take out, yet. I really like the new grass area a lot better. Even makes the brick road look at little bit better :) Don't you think?
Not sure what I want to do for the sky yet. The area is small so it will be hard to do anything with too much of a pattern. I have beads for the medium green on the city. I'm hoping that will make the city pop out a little bit more. You can't tell, but the light green has a shine to it as well as the green int he grass.
For Christmas my hubby got me a fitbit. So I've been tracking my steps each day. Some days I do well and others not so good. My goal is 8,000 steps a day, most days I'm up around 5,000, on days I go to the gym and walk I hit the 8,000 mark and a couple of times I've even hit 10,000!! My daughters are doing it too, so we connected our scores so we can encourage each other. I didn't walk today, but will go in the morning.
We are getting much needed rain here in Sunny Cal, almost to the extent of too much, almost I said. It has lead to some major mudslides and flash flooding but nothing that has impacted us.
Well going to surf for a minute - lurk on other's blogs and work on getting my stitch mojo at home going. I love Friday nights, I can stay up late :), but given the sound of rain, I might just make it an early night.
