Focused randomness

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Also Happy Mother's Day to those that celebrate. Looks like spring has finally arrived in my little corner of the Fort. Have to admit that I've been enjoying the clear days and the cool nights. Schoolwork is winding down for the girls. With the current state of things this is going to be the last true week for Serra and Amanda has this week and AP Exams next week. Thankfully one Fossil Ridge tradition, all be it in a modified format will get to happen. What did we do this past week? It was full of writing. Serra's English class wrote stories to share with each other this week and we had lots of discussion...

What do you mean no sports today?

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Going to be a bit of a strange one around here today....no sports! Football season is over and Baseball is yet to begin. Nascar fires up with Daytona next weekend and there might be some college hoops that can keep me company with the Tapestry today. So how was this last week for everyone? Girls are mostly over being sick which feels good and I'm glad of. Hopefully sleep will once again become my friend instead of listening for them most of the night. The PieceWork project is finished and shipped off last week. You have to wait until the fall to see it but it was fun. I also accepted a project with SpinOff...

So long January!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's Groundhog's Day, Imbolc, Super Bowl Sunday and Palindrome Day all rolled into one, a lot for one Sunday to handle. Things here this past week have been a bit of a roller coaster. Celebrating Serra's birthday was great along with the news that she and her teammates took first in all three of their events for Science Olympiad at the competition last weekend were some of the highs. The lows? Both girls have been pretty sick this week with a cough currently torturing Amanda. Hopefully another couple days of rest with get her back on her feet. I know it's not severe because she's more upset about being sick than feeling sick, yes she...

A finish, the process and being present

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Three day weekend for the girls here and they are currently taking advantage of getting to sleep in. I probably should have gotten up early the last two days to get some more things done but enjoyed the extra rest.  What did we do this last week? The ornament for Just CrossStitch magazine is finished and gets shipped Tuesday. I really wish that I could share it! I believe the issue will be released in October and I will certainly post about it then. Got started on the third scarf of the Monet series. Here are the colors on the warp board. After measuring I wind half of each color on my "fancy" bobbins and...

Mother Nature and step three

Good Morning and Happy Sunday Internetland! Not NEARLY as snowy of a morning as I was expecting to wake up to and I have to admit I'm disappointed right now. Forecasters were going nuts over this storm last week and there's barely a dusting on my car. Two jobs you'll always get paid for no matter how often you're wrong: weather forecasting and politics. On to the week that was, the week that should have been and the week that will be. This past week was a complete roller coaster of emotion. There was a really good day where my emotions were soaring high, a day that I need to remember when things don't look that great. Then there was...
