~ From one of my beloved Mary Engelbreit Calendars ~
I have awakened with a "rare" headache...a bump on my forehead and a bit of a black eye. There was so much planned for today, my day away from the shoppe.
Many times I find myself rushing like a spinning top after work when I arrive home to tend to hungry cat and hubby...as I was repeating in a raised voice a message to hubby (losing his hearing) I tried to move into the laundry room and hit the light switch at the same time...that is when I smacked my left forehead into the door frame... I haven't hurt myself in years, and years...but I knew this was serious; as I was sorta crumbling to my knees my tired brain thought grab the door cause IF you fall or pass out you will lie there until hubby either wonders down to see what's for dinner or remembers it is time for his favorite Two and A Half Men show... I did call him 3 times...finally gave up and took my time and slowly climbed the stairs ...hubby was still leisurely reading the newspaper totally unaware of my mishap that could have been lots worse. He was sorry that he hadn't heard me "...not to worry, but Please talk to your doctor about getting a hearing aide."
It is risky getting older ...but, as they say, the alternative is not a good one.
Yep...we got some of the white stuff:) it happened while I was reading and fell asleep... Now, at 12:16 a.m. I had to remake my hot dishwater and now must go wash up and dry....yikes, SNOW and dishwashing ...bet I don't fall asleep like that again any time soon.
Tomorrow, we should have rain and no more snow...meaning NO SNOWCREAM....darn!!
Wishing all a wonderful Thursday. Enjoy your stitching, ~Gail in cold and snowy S.E. Virginia
This is my first finished counted cross stitched Sampler. It is a PineberryLane design and worked on 32 count Belgium Linen...I love it:)
It is a follow-up to one of my original posts here as I wanted to show it all framed up AFTER I learned to use my new digital camera...it hangs proudly here in my computer area.
I look at it often and still can't believe I managed to actually finish it...believe me, I had many stitches to "undo" so as to save me "nine" extras later. I encourage anyone to start small and work up...you won't be disappointed.
