My great aunt taught me to tat, but I don't remember at all how to do it. I can still crochet. My knitting has always been horrible, though.

So it turns out my heart results weren't so great, and they need me to see a cardiologist. But there's a wait and the whole referral process, so we'll see someone when we get back from Hawaii. Yeah, not so relaxed after that news.

Flights have been cancelled for small planes, so we can't fly tomorrow, we'll drive from Bellingham to Seattle for our early morning flight to Hawaii on Sunday. Just one more thing to have to arrange - but when you travel all the time, you learn to not worry about these things.

The weather has really cooled down but we may get another run of warm days. No exercise today but I am still keeping my weight steady. Tomorrow I will get out early and get in a nice walk

I have tried crochet, knitting, embroidery, cross stitch, and needlepoint at various times in my life. I always manage to finish at least one project but rarely went back to do another because I just never get the hang of it. My siblings however are very creative, win prizes and even sell their creations. Someone has to be the audience.

We are back home safe and sound from our little trip to Santa Cruz. Had a room on the beach. It was a nice break. Nothing new on the sale of our house. As of last night, the package had not yet gone to underwriting. We are probably looking at sometime next week which seems like is always the case lately. emoticon

We are supposed to move our full bed into my stepdaughter’s storage unit this morning. This is the last piece of furniture we have given away. But with emoticon forecast, it may not happen.

I really need a good workout today emoticon and will probably do one at home unless hubby wants to go to the gym.

Donna ~ Tahoe is less than 2 hours from my house. It is a great escape for us. emoticon

Phebess ~ Glad to hear all is well with your heart. emoticon Your traveling is an art in itself. I don’t know if I could do that.

Sunny ~ I’ve been to Maui just once and loved it. Hubby prefers Key West. How nice to be so close to the beach. I would love that. emoticon

Dee ~ 3 days. Fun. emoticon

Maree ~ I often talk about my “friends” too. emoticon

CBullis ~ I love volleyball. emoticon Is it coed?

Poindextra ~ You are coming back strong. emoticon

Bess ~ Enjoy your stay/vacation. emoticon

Nell ~ Our cleaners are every other week too. It works well for us. emoticon

Kellie ~ Have fun in Michigan with the girls. emoticon

Toni ~ I am catching up from 2 days. I open a Word document and go back and forth. Easier for me that way. emoticon

4ConniesHealth ~ We have wind and rain the next several days. I think Fall has arrived in California. emoticon

Need to keep my head up and move on. Getting a little tired of the house situation.

I will have a long work day today. I hold a Parent's Night Out about once a month and tonight is it. After my 17 hour day, I am looking forward to some light shopping this weekend and then working on my cross stitch project that I need to get done in the next 2 weeks. I'm looking forward to cooler temps but I guess that yesterday was it for cooler for the next week. Oh, well, Fall will be here in Texas eventually.

Happy Friday all! Not really sure what the day has in store, but I do plan to take off early, so there is that. emoticon

Parents are coming up this weekend to assist with helping us fix a leaking window, take down the tree that snapped, etc. I bought some stuff to spoil the new dog who is very goofy-we think she's about 4 and is a chihuahua mix.

Hope that everyone has a good weekend! Good thoughts to those struggling and safe travels to those on the road!

Hi all! Catching up on everyone's posts from yesterday. It was a very busy day.

I'm off today... heading to Michigan for a girls weekend. I'm excited and dreading it too. My allergies have turned into a highly cough. I slept on the couch last night which is NOT comfortable. DH has to get up early so I didn't want to disturb him. I think I may end up getting my own room. We'll see how I am once I'm there. Sometimes my allergies are better when I go out of state. hmmmm

Happy Friday!

Good morning my maintainer pals. I'm running late again this morning. These darker mornings are part of the problem but my sleep schedule has gone wonky too. I still get in my 7-8 hours each night but they're interrupted about 1 a.m. with an hour of tossing, turning or reading. I'm sure it's emotional as all the stresses and excitement of the past 4 months wind down. Next week is the last one full of in-the-spotlight tension. Not bad tension, mind you, but still, ya know, tension.

Tatting, Maree, is a kind of lace making that uses a shuttle full of thread to make buttonhole stitches into a circle and connect the circles into a pattern. It's very pretty and everyone I ever met who could tat told me it was easy ... which made my own failure one of those little curious anomalies in what has otherwise been a lifetime of being able to understand all things fiber.

Linda, I hope you're medicines will soon be kicking in and making you feel much better.

I am really ready for Friday today - FridayFridayFridayFridayFriday

Good morning everyone,

I'm glad it's Friday, and am about to leave the house for work. I should be able to get some more tests run so I won't need to do any work over the weekend. I want the time to get the garage back in order. I'm also going to order more slatwall and a heavy-duty shelf to finish the project.

Linda, I hope the shot kicks in soon for you. It's crummy to be tired all the time.

Good morning!

Glad the condo meeting went well, Nell. As we know, the Nats game, not so well. But what a fun season, all in all.

I have a lovely hand towel with tatting on the edge. It was made by the mother of Grace, a long passed friend of mine (Grace was born in 1901) who gave it to me. Very fine work indeed, Nell. Like you, I can't imagine tackling it, and good for Bess for doing so. In this era many people don't even know how to sew on a button!

I had a great day yesterday, starting with the gym and just staying on track with everything but water. What is it with me and water lately? Cannot figure it out, but will try adding that piece to my day.

Still dark in VA as I finish this up, and cooler weather slipping into our days. emoticon

Good morning. The condo board meeting actually went well, we got a lot done quickly so that folks could watch the baseball game, but I have a lot of followup to do today.

Maree, tatting is the old way to make lace. It's beautiful, but fussy, and not all that common anymore because machine lace is so cheap. I have my great grandmother's tatting bobbin somewhere around here, but never wanted to deal with the thin thread required by tatting. I can't even manage thread crochet, I just stick with yarn.

Good morning!

Here at DD's house so no crossfit class today. But I worked hard yesterday instead of just doing mobility since trainer switched up the workouts. This morning we will walk granddaughter to preschool so a little break from the usual workout. My shoulder needs some PT and a rest anyway.

I count it a blessing to have a cleaning lady. When I was promoted last year, I told DH that the extra money would allow me the opportunity to hire someone but it took this long to ready the house and find someone. Honestly, I'm down to one (very furry, always itching) dog, so keeping clean should be more manageable now. DH also took over a huge closet with rows of shelving for all of his stuff and he invested time and effort in the remodel so I m hoping he has a new sense of pride in the house to keep it nice and tidy. I also take every opportunity to tell him how important it is to me; I compare it to things that are important to him--like being on time (a trait he obtained from his dad). So, yes, I remember those busy child-raising years (but with only one), and it's harder to fit it all in. We can just do our best, right?

Bess, I don't know what tatt is! In my world, it's slang for tattoo. But somehow I don't think that's your style (not that there's anything wrong with that--not my style either)! Some kind of stitching? I'll have to look it up. See, I've just learned something new again!

Okay, enough already!! Happy Friday to all and hope it's a great day!
