It seems when you are child, days last forever, and Christmas never seems to come around soon enough. And summer - man how much I love those summers - playing outside until the street lights came on, riding my bike all over with my friends and eating ice cream without wondering if I'll regret the decision later. And the best part when I was a teenager, was sitting on the mailbox that was used by the post office to put the mail in for the carrier - remember those big green mailboxes? We would jump up on them and sit and talk for hours!!! I can't believe I could actually jump up on one, let alone sit with one or two girlfriends.
Then at some point in your life, the days get too short, Christmas is ALWAYS here before you are ready and life just seems to be slipping away......and you really don't know why. And there is no way I could jump up on one of those mailboxes. let alone have enough room for anyone but myself - if I could find one to even try to jump up on.
On a sad note I'll be taking my granddaughter home to her Mommy (our oldest daughter). She is trying to talk me into one more trip to Disneyland, but I think I can resist - she's' been 4 times now, twice this visit and twice on her last visit.
These are the strawberries my youngest daughter sent me to celebrate the end of our really busy season at work - they were so good!!! I think there are still two left in the refrig, but won't be for long :) My work can be stressful at times and require some long hours, but I love what I do, so don't mind most of the time. My career has afforded me the opportunity to move around and meet lots of really nice people and total go wild with my stash :)
The socks at the top are really home made socks, I spun the yarn myself and they are heavier than most, but are nice for walking on cold floors. They are my finish for the month - so now I can start new socks without feeling too guilty.
Hope to post some stitching accomplishments soon.
Until then - hope you needle is threaded with enough thread to get to the end of the row.
