With summer coming to a close and school beginning again next week, I am hoping to get back into a routine, which I hope includes only weekly or bi-weekly trips to the grocery store! I feel like I have been in the grocery store just about every day this summer! Yuck!!!
Starting this weekend, I will browse the grocery store flyers, go shopping on Monday and plan my meals ahead of time...wish me success fellow bloggers!
I'd love to hear how each of you do many trips to the grocery store do you make? How do you plan your meals? Any recipes you care to share with me? Tips?
Feel free to post a comment, or email me....I'd love to hear from you!!
Have a great day's foggy and rainy here today.....good day to try and get my house organized!

Well, if you can believe it, I only worked for 3 days!!! I knew after the first day that it wasn't for me, but decided to keep trying. I liked the work, but I didn't like having to push memberships to the place, I am not a seller, and time didn't seem to mean anything to the person I was working one else there was married, or had a family, and when you are expecting to get off at a certain time and don't...and have a daughter waiting for's not I thanked my boss very nicely for giving me the chance, but it just wasn't for me. Part of me is relieved, part of me is sad...but what is meant to meant to be.....right? I will find something eventually that will feel right.

In the meantime, we are on our last full week of summer vacation here. Today we went to the beach (well myself, my youngest and her friend)...this is a new to us beach...and I am in love!!

It was absolutely gorgeous!!! We are going back on Wednesday!!

Have you read about THIS designer in the Halloween Issue of Just Cross-stitch??? I love THIS design! I don't know that I'd attempt it....but I sure love it!! I would not frame it with a clock though....but that's just my opinion. I think I will actually put it on my wish list.....

Have a good evening everyone!!

Good evening!

Summer is winding down here in eastern Nova Scotia....we are down to our last two weeks of summer vacation.
As for me...I start a new chapter of my life tomorrow! I am going to start working part-time!! It's been 11 years since I technically worked outside the home...I did do three years of lunch-time duty at the kids school, but this in official part-time job! I will be working at a Massage Therapy Clinic about 20 hours per week. I am hoping it works will be a nice change...and if it doesn't work out (or at least this job doesn't work out)'s not the end of the world.

We've been busy around here...two family BBQ's this weekend! Lots of good food, good company.....
I've been busy stitching too! I started "Seven Days of Creation" by Plum Street Samplers.......I do love Paulette's designs..this one is stitched on 32 count..

.and I also started (and "almost" finished)"From The Deep" also from Paulette.....this particular design will hang in my bathroom when done. It's stitched on 32 count as well.....AND....I finished up this freebie that Paulette's stitched on 40 count!! My first attempt at 40 count, and I LOVE it!!

I also started Jenny Bean's Humble Servant Sampler and it's stitched on 40 count!! Who knew that I would love this count!!
Sorry for the bad photo of Jenny Bean!! I cannot seem to get a clear photo of this one!!
And so my friends...I will say goodnight for now....
Take care......

Greetings Fellow Bloggers

I am still among the land of the living. I have been browsing Blogs the past few weeks when time permits.....I have been stitching a bit, knitting a bit, and basically doing things with the kids (okay.....actually mostly just my youngest child, as older two are both working for the summer). We've been going in the pool, to the beach, to movies, etc...etc....etc.... I've gotten away for a night with a friend (great time...yard sales, second hand stores, etc....).....
and that's pretty much it so far this summer. We still have another month to go around here before school starts, so not sure what the rest of the summer will bring.....
hope you are all still with me for when I start Blogging more in the coming weeks!
Take care everyone!
