week 21 and counting

Can you believe the year is nearly half over already? It's true, the older you get, the faster time goes by. I'm tellin' ya.....wowzers!

Lots happening this week. More house hunting and more exploring and a little good grammie time.

Fruit stands abound along the delta. Cherries are in full swing and they won't last long. Strawberries and stone fruits are just starting.

Yummmmmmmmmm is everywhere and I am going to enjoy it while it lasts.

My hoop is growing. 
I've added a fitbit symbol, flag, red nose, 007, road signs, 
and I can't remember what else.

Trying a new set up and added lots of "love" to my project list.

Even pulled out a vintage hoop for this one.

Me on red nose day and my hydrangea is full bloom.

This week has already started with a bang and I hope it slows down because I don't need another emergency room and ambulance ride for a long while. Not me, my 87 MIL and it was totally an over reaction and totally unnecessary. OY and a half!

Hope your week is as exciting, but it good ways.

week 20

Been a fun and busy couple of weeks. 

Still pluggin away at my #1yearofstitches hoop
Week 20 hoop view

The cat decided to sneak into my cabinet while I was getting something and then I found him trying to get out. Crazy cat!

Made beignets. Easy and yummy and messy.

A little LOVE from down under.

Cahin stitching a little more LOVE
I'm sensing a theme......LOL

A little goofing in Oregon with some of my bible study chicks.

 Somebody turns five this week and had a little Chuck E. Cheese fun the day before her party and then the party. Sleeping beauty was the theme.

Also cleaned my sewing room and the dot cleaned her closet out which means I need to re-clean my sewing room. Oy.

Lots of boring chores and a couple trips to Oakhurst to look at houses. Every time we find something we both like, it's already snapped up. It's hard to house hunt from afar and by the time you get there, well, you know the story.
Looking into building. If the fees aren't too ridiculous (yuba county I'm talking to you) we just may start from scratch.
