I thought I was organized

I am already re-thinking that I am organized..with the Crazy Challenge...making a change already. Will be posting the change over at my other blog.

Today I received an e-mail form Lisa V telling me who my Winter Exchange partner is...I am half way finished with my project......I  am very happy to be a part of this group. I sent out my Christmas exchange card with Maaike from creJJtion...we decided to do this just the other day. So off to The Netherlands went my card today. If anyone else is interested in a card exchange just email me your address.
Well, it has been a long day at JoAnn's...even though I only work 5 hours. Dinner was delish...did I mention that Dennis does the cooking? Rigatoni (pasta) ,Italian style bread (I cannot really call it real Italian bread, because it is not like I had back in RI) and salad and a glass of wine...ok a large glass of wine. I think cheese cake will do for dessert...have a good night and talk with you soon.....

First things first~~

A very Happy Birthday to my husband Dennis. Today is one of those big numbers...65. I would like to tell you about my guy. He is a loving and caring man. There are no perfect people in the world (I sometimes think I am!) but to me he is everything I could want or need. He has a wonderful sense of humor but at the same time can be a quiet man. To say he spoils me would be the biggest understatement I could make.

Happy Birthday Dennis

Now, on to other news.....
A giveaway over at Cat's...there will be 2 prizes! Of course, if your too busy, then my chances will really increase!

I  spent the last 2 days dealing with computer issues. Finally yesterday Lance from the Geek Squad fixed my problem. My CD drive had a problem....glad that it is fixed and not taking up my stitching time. No stitching yesterday and today is a few hours work...I will be  cutting fabric at JoAnn's for the rest of the week. All of which means less needle in hand time until Sunday.
Thanks for stopping by and chatting....see you back here soon or I will be by your place....have the tea ready.

The day after Monday~~~

For Today

Outside my window
        It is dark and still
I am thinking
    I love this time of day
I am thankful for
        All that I have
From the kitchen
        My tea is brewing
I am wearing
        pj's of course
I am remembering
       What a fun time last night's Christmas Open House was
Around the house
       I can hear silence
On my mind
       I still have to mail out a gift and get a gift
From my camera's eye

My friend Linda and me, (who I call Ziz...so many Linda's in my life!)






I am wishing
        A wonderful rest of the week for all........

Thanks for stopping by and visiting...time for that cup of tea and maybe a piece of cheesecake from last night's party!

What a nice surprise!

I just found out that I was selected for another PIF from Elisa...so I really am looking for those interested in my PIF...times 2! Remember, you will receive from me sometime during 2011 and you will post to hold a PIF on your blog. Not too bad, because you/I will have the whole year to make/send a gift.
Also, another nice giveaway at Tricia's ...so stop. Tricia, like myself has set up a blog for the Crazy January Challenge...last time I checked, there were a lot of us Crazies! Going to be a busy year but lots of fun to follow.
It has been a busy day. I went to a local electronics store to try to purchase the PC Stitch program...(I have an old version)...but no luck. so I guess Amazon.com will be hearing from me.
Tomorrow night is the Christmas Open House here at our Condo Association. I started it some years back and it has been such fun to visit and enjoy refreshments at each stop by and visit with her. So, I have things to do and want need  to do some stitching just to relax. Yeah NE Patriots...one quarter left and the score 36-7...next week they play my boss' team the Packers...going to be tough if we do not win! Thanks for chatting with me....see you soon.

New blogs?

As some of you know, I have set up another blog for the Crazy January 2011 Challenge...I just wanted a place to post the special projects. A few others have also...which brings me to this...I  would like to know if you are setting up a Crazies blogs so I can follow and keep up with your projects. You can find mine at the sidebar....if you are interested.
