It's Not Offshore

Husband has working a lot lately. More than he is supposed to. I feel like we haven't had a real conversation since we got home from vacation. But, of course, things could always be worse. Do you read the Game of Thrones books? He does, and apparently every family has a banner with a slogan or something. He says ours should be, "It's not offshore", something we often remind one another of when he's crazy busy. We were supposed to celebrate my certification with some friends this weekend, but that wasn't in the cards, which is a real shame. Ah well. Complaining is silly when we have so much to be grateful for.

Here's something that makes me happy.

This is one of the first things I embroidered a few years ago. I know embroidery sounds like it's for old people, but it's such a fun craft. I get a lot of my patterns from Sublime Stitching, tons of funky things like skeletons and martini glasses and jelly fish. I'd like to learn knitting or crocheting or something, but it doesn't sound like it's one of those instant gratification crafts, which is what I'm into. What can I say, I have little patience.

What did you do this weekend? See any new movies, do anything fun? Talk to me!

LOVE the embroidery!!! I've been quilting and knitting and keep wanting to pick up embroidery as well.

I'm waiting for Game of Thrones to come in for me at the library. Looking forward to it.

Righit now I think my family slogan is "AAAAAHHHHH!!!!"
