A little stitching

All of my current cross stitch projects are gifts - this one I could hide the 'give-away' in case a certain somebody happens to see the pic. Haven't decided how I want to finish it yet but I've got a little while before the gift giving event takes place. :)

We are having beautiful spring-like weather here this week but the weather reports say it will be closer to normal next week. I will take as many days like today as I can get. Thankfully, 'normal' around here is still not freezing. 

Hope you are having a great week!

Happy Valentine's Weekend!

Just a few snaps from around the house

Come on in




Breakfast area

Just to the right of the above picture. The table is behind me when I'm taking pictures in this space. There is also a bay window on the other side of the table which plays heck with the lighting both here and in the kitchen.

That's it. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Happy birthday, Timothy!

32 years ago today this guy arrived in the front seat of a Ford Escort (20 miles from the hospital), two weeks ahead of schedule. 

He was a busy boy.

He still is. We are so proud of the wonderful man he is today.

Love you more than we can ever say.

Happy birthday, Timothy!

What feed reader app do you use? Since Google reader disappeared I've been reading blogs on my iPad via Bloglovin and I've never been thrilled with it which is one of the reasons I don't read as many anymore. Just wondering what everyone else uses. My desktop runs Windows 10, so ideally I would like something that I could use on both. Also wondering what photo editing site everyone uses. 
I would like to get back to both reading more and posting more but I'm lazy and don't want to spend a whole lot of time exploring the pros and cons of all the options out there so if I could get some input I could narrow the playing field a little. :)

Since I don't like to do a post without a picture here is a little piece of stitchery from quite awhile back. 

Thanks in advance!

My little feather tree decorated for Valentines Day.

Still working on the monster.
