My mom can't come to the blog right now. She's all bobcomdistulated and can't figure out what the hell day of the week it is to save her life. We've both been a little out of sorts this last week (what with the de-roofing and all), but methinks the old lady has finally lost her mind.

Mom woke up early today and had Aunt Chrissy come over to haul all of the crap out of the garage closet for the air conditioning man, but he doesn't come until tomorrow. Now she's in the bed pouting that she ruined everybody's morning. I swear, sometimes it's all I can do not to smother her in her sleep.

As for me, I'm happy to be back on my perch. I love my Aunt Chrissy's house, but it isn't really conducive to napping because of my pesky cousin Bosco. From the minute the little twerp gets up in the morning until the minute he goes to bed at night he runs back and forth from the front door to the back door barking at anything that's moving within a three mile radius of his house. It's pretty stupid, if you ask me, especially since the birds and squirrels and ducks and people in his neighborhood are used to him being a nut ball, so all they do is carry on with their business as though he weren't even there.

On the stitchy front, Mom finished Lily Frog! I'll try to get some pics for you later today because the light is just not very good at the moment. She's also started a few new things, so there will be lots for her to tell you about. (Don't encourage her too much with this whole canvas thing....I'm concerned that she's jonesing for a bender, and we'll end up with a carload full of new stuff before you can say "My mo-ther has no fiscal discipline whatsoever and should be heavily medicated.")

That's all for today, kids! I hope that you're more combobulated than we are and that you get to do whatever it is you want to do today!

With love from your pal,


  1. your mom finished lily frog
    thats all i remember about this post.........so looking forward to seeing her!

  2. Oh, do tell about the new projects! I guess the roofing went well if Stewey is at last in his perch again. I often mistake the day of the week, and getting ready a day early for the air con guy is better than him showing up with nothing ready.

  3. Welcome back, Coni and Stewey. I missed your posts A. WHOLE. LOT.

  4. Welcome home to you both! I feel for ya Stewey as I too have issues sleeping when not in my own bed..hehe.

    I am so excited that your mom finished Lily Frog and can't wait to see the picture. And tell her not to worry too much over cleaning out the closet a day early. That's one less thing she has to do tomorrow!

  5. But it's just that kind of a day...down here in southern Indiana too! Humid, dark, and getting ready to rain...no good loght for stitching so I'll blog brouse.
    Glad you too are finally in your own pad.

  6. Stewey, your mom sounds awfully much like me. I'm rather notorious in my family for being a day (or two) ahead with this sort of big event - out of worry that I'll forget it, I suppose. Not that that is very comforting to everyone that I get all upset. :o
