I'm so sleepy today because SOMEBODY had to play and be a general pest until 4:30am. I am pretty sure that it was because I wouldn't let him watch "Damage" with Jeremy Irons and Juliette Binoche, so he decided to get his revenge. Damn dog. At one point there were six stuffed toys, three cookies, a chewey, and the guts of Stumpy the Moose all over the blanket. Forget the fact that I was trying to cling to the very edgy edge of the bed and fall asleep....nope.....it was HAPPY TIME! I should have just gone into the guest room and called it a night.

So now he's on his perch trying to catch a nap and I'm going in there every fifteen minutes to wake his little heiney up. Can you say MOMMY TIME?!

Chrissy and I went to the library for the Needle Nuts stitching group. We met Miss Bessie and Miss Pam, both lovely knitters. Miss Bessie does all hand knitting and Miss Pam does both hand and machine knitting. (Up until last night I didn't even know there was such a thing.) We managed to babble away and I got a few more petals of my sunflower completed.

The drive home was rather interesting since it decided to hail. I hate driving in hail. It feels like the windshield is going to shatter. So my brilliant sister yells (over the noise of the hail, of course) to pull into the bank and park under the drive through canopy. Four spaces there and three cars already waiting it out. Ahhhh. I must confess, I would never have thought of it, so I suppose that she gets the gold star for the day for that one.

Let's all have a Happy 4th, shall we?


  1. Gotta love the pay-backs :P

    I lol'd

  2. I can so relate! My beagle sleeps all day while I'm at work and barks/bays all night when I (and the rest of the neihborhood) am trying to sleep! If anyone knows of an automatic-dog-awakener that I can use during the day so he'll sleep at night I'd be much obliged!

  3. haha... a certain SOMEBODY at my house is in the "dog house". He ate 3 pairs of my panties and 1 pair of my boyfriend's daughters. Ugh.

    So needless to say, I think we are going panty shopping this weekend.

  4. ahhh yours goes till 4am and mine start about that time! DH ususally gets up and boots them out onto the porch till we get up.

  6. You sound like my DH. He wakes up cat because she wakes him up. Glad you had a nice time with the other ladies.

  7. You made some great finishes recently. I need to learn how to do the peep scissor pocket thingy for the MFC blog. Any tips?? xx

  8. Hi, Coni!
    Just found your blog and was mesmerized by your slideshow of finished projects. Delighted to see some of my designs in your finished pile! (Love the Hide & Seek variation especially!!)
