Been Shopping !!

My girl friend and I went for a walk through Big Lots today just for the heck of it. Of course like many other stores, they have started to put out their Christmas items. Well !!  We found the animated stuffed animals, and we were bad. We had all of them going to see what they could do.  I found a lone penguin , pressed his button and lost it !! He is wonderfully funny. He sings a not so old fashioned carol and keeps beat to the music including a lot of boody action. I just had to have him. A silly impulsive purchase for sure. Not like me at all, I am not usually a shopper. But I love him  !! Here is a video of him, see what you think.

The video wouldn't work on here. Drat !! You would have been laughing !! Take care and have a great day !!

Here Again !.,

This year has flown by so fast that it is often hard to keep up. The biggest event is the most recent. Two days ago I became a great grandmother !! Yikes !! How did that happen !! Thursday morning at 7 AM, Ophelia Wren made her appearance into this world. She weighed 6 lbs 14 oz and is 20 inches long. Of course I think she is beautiful.

She is just a few hours old here

This one was taken today !!
I wish I lived closer so I could give her cuddles but my grand daughter sends me pictures and updates.

I will post tomorrow with my stitching. Thanks for looking.

February First !!

Today has been a quiet day. But yesterday was a good one. Charlie (my son) came over ad took me out to lunch. We went to Red Robin. We ate chatted and had a wonderful time together.

After I got home I just sat and relaxed and stitched. I started my Spring SAL for the Needlecraft Haven. It is a chart from Lizzie Kate and I am really enjoying it. A very relaxing stitch.

I also finished a scarf for my friend

Well I think that is all for today. Thank you for visiting and have a great day !!

January 2015 yikes !!

Well 2015 has snuck up on me and now January is almost over. It is hard to believe how fast time does go by. A lot has happened to me since Rich's death this past July. I still miss him and sometimes get down in the doldrums. I can hear him coming down the hallway only to turn and find no one there. I guess this is all normal and will eventually get better. I have been traveling. As you saw in my last post I went to Maryland to see family in August. In November I made a long trip to England to meet stitching friends of about 7-8 years. It was nice to finally see them in person after chatting with them for so long.clare and her husband offered their home to me while I was there and I had a wonderful time getting to know them both. They have a lovely home.

This a view from the garden. Clare and I roamed all over most days to see the sites. It is such a beautiful country. On Thursday we went o London for the day and saw Buckingham Place, Harrods,Big Ben and the Parlament building, the Eye of London, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London. It was all breathtaking. During the afternoon we stopped at Knighsbridge Green Hotel for tea. So wonderful. Here we sat at 3in the afternoon drinking champagne, I felt like royalty.
