Weekly Update


Missed posting last week...but nothing really exciting was happening.

Spring arrived today! YES...it finally got here but now the better countdown starts! The countdown to SUMMER ~ my most FAVORITE season ever. I am one of those people who love the heat. The hot weather doesn't bother me at all...so BRING IT ON!
My daughter Tia and Jacob my grandson got a chance to go out and enjoy the beautiful weather we had yesterday. Jacob got on his bike to ride it up and down the street and they discovered he grew to tall for the bike he got last year! So off to the store we went so my daughter could buy him a new one. Here he is trying it out at the store...new bike and helmet!
He was overjoyed and can't wait for another warm day so he can go outside and ride! Today it has been raining and now we have the thunderstorms.

STITCHING
I managed to get in a bit of stitching time on both of my WIPs but not nearly enough as you can see.
I made a little progress on L*K's ABC's of Parenting, but I still have soooo much more to do!
I don't think it will be finished in time for the arrival of the twins but HOPEFULLY it will be done shortly after that? Maybe I can try working on it EVERYDAY after work this week and see how far I can get.

Here is my progress on my weekend project; which is EMS's March Flower.
I am really enjoying doing this one and I can actually see the progress I am making on it.

READING
During the last couple of weeks I read or listened to a number of books. I listened to J.A. Jance's Fatal Error, which is the latest book in the Ali Reynolds series. I also started to listen to The Alphabet Series by Sue Grafton and I got thru A, B and C. I read the 10th book in the Jack Reacher series, The Hard Way and Crewel World, the first book in The Needlecraft Mystery Series by Monica Ferris. I remember reading some of this series a long time ago but didn't know how far I got so decided to start over with them. Not sure which book I will start tomorrow, guess I will see what I feel like when I get up and ready for work!

MOVIES
We watched a few movies during the past couple of weeks. We saw one of Jacob's favorites. Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2. He absolutely loves that movie...but he is 5 :) We also watched Easy A, You Again and Stone. They were all good but I really like You Again.

Have a wonderful week and go out and ENJOY SPRING!
