And we're off!

For 2 weeks vacation! I was going to try to find a picture of a sunbather, lazying about on a beach, with a drink in bed, and pretend it was me, but honestly I'm too tired. Why is it when you're about to start a vacation, that you get dumped with work? Combine that house renovations, inside and out, and trying to organize my new sewing room, which has really been neglected and I am definitely ready to head out of here tomorrow!

Hubby and I did manage to get our kitchen ready last night however as our new kitchen appliances arrive today - new fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher! No more cursing the size of my fridge (and of course now the family has downsized) and no more whining about the dirty dishes coming out of the dishwasher. And wouldn't you know, I won't get to enjoy them as I'll be washing dishes at the cottage for the next 2 weeks! May be I'll buy paper plates, the kind we can put in the compost bin.

And of course I did manage to pack my stitching bag :-D I haven't packed my clothes yet, in fact I still have to do laundry! Yes, I am a true stitcher!

And here is Glenna's RR, all finished and in fact in the mail, winging its way on to Carissa, early as I won't be back until after August 1st, and I didn't want to send it off late.


Have a wonderful couple of weeks and 'see' you all when I get back!

Wendy,

I hope you have a wonderful vacation. I just had to laugh at your packing your cross-stitch before your clothing. I do the exact same thing! I wonder if this is a common practice among stitchers?

Congratulations on all of your new appliances. I hope they give you great service for many years to come.
