just popping in

Thought I would just pop in for a minute to say hi. I probably owe some emails and I'll get to it. As for getting around to visiting blogs - my reader count currently stands at 1000+. It might take me awhile to catch up.

Since I hate to do a post without a pic, here are a couple.

Hubby has been on a kick of trying different wines. Sometimes he lets me tag along to pick out something. How do you pick a wine? I look for the pretty blue bottles! Can you see what it says?

Sold! It actually was pretty good! I need to soak the label off so I can add it to my collection. I'm going to do another bottle tree in the back yard - hopefully soon!

Okay - back to reality. I'm so far behind, I think I'm ahead. Really.

I went to the annual 3 Stitches get-a-way over the weekend. This was our (the girlfriends and myself) 5th time to attend. (it was the 13th get-a-way for the shop) We had a great time. The weather was wonderful. We were even a bit chilly at times! Since we all know how quickly summer (and super hot temps) arrives in Texas, the cooler temps were welcome, even if it was a bit windy. We are still having nice weather today.

From the retreat I went to my parents for a couple of days. My mother had surgery yesterday and I didn't make it home until after 10:00pm last night. (and I got up at 2:44am yesterday!) I haven't even unpacked yet. I did drag out the old make-up bag since I needed to go to the grocery store and, well, we don't want to be scaring folks! I'll get to the unpacking in a bit and I'll try to get pics of the weekend up soon. It will be limited to pics of projects and purchases since I never seem to get around to taking people pictures while we are there. Just too much stitching and visiting going on to remember things like that! LOL. We all signed up to go again next year!

Hope you are having a great week!

What a pretty wine bottle! And you can't go wrong with a Riesling. Once I was listening to a radio show and the guest said to shy away from any wine that has an animal on the label. I've used that advice ever since!
