Walk with me.....

Every morning I take the dogs on a good long walk. My neighborhood is very eclectic. There is a mix of all different types of houses and some beautiful yards and some not so beautiful yards LOL

Here are just a few pictures of my walk this morning. This house has a cottage feel to it the yard and the house are just plain "cute"

This house has the most unique tree. I have no idea what type of tree it is. Do you? I also have a fondness for the purple door ;)

And this little guy was chirping away waiting for his Momma to come and feed him. He had a sibling sitting next to him but it scampered away before I could snap its picture

I got the job!!

Thank you everyone for all your well wishes! They must have worked because I got the call yesterday and the owner offered me the job. I am beyond excited! This is a wonderful Cuban restaurant and owned by a husband and wife. Most of their employees have been there since they opened in '97. Another great thing about them they are closed on Sundays!! This is SO rare in the restaurant industry. Also the uniform is so casual. Kaki pants and a Cuban inspired type shirt this is going to be such a great summer :)

I have to do some laundry today and then I am going to be chasing a frog out of my house Grrrr! I thank you all for wonderful comments and also I changed my blog I became aware that some people could not comment. So hopefully this fixes the problem. If you notice anything strange about my blog do no hesitate to let me know.

Take Care

Wish me luck!

Today I have an interview. I work for a large chain restaurant and in the last year and a half this place has gone through countless changes. A revolving door of managers, a decline in customers and most recently the firing of two long term employees, which resulted in three others quiting shortly after. The bartenders are overworked and understaffed because of the recent happenings, this has made a heavier work load for the reaming bartenders and with that is increased stressed. Last week was the last straw for me.

So yesterday afternoon I saw a posting for a local place that is hiring and I sent an email with resume and within 15 minutes I got a response and I go in today at 11:15. This restaurant is my favorite place to go and eat and get drinks. So when I saw they were hiring I was very excited. So wish me luck and hopefully I can go into my current job tonight and tell them I quit :)

On the stitching front I am still working on Garden of Life. I will not bore you with any pictures as I have not completed much since the last post. I am ready though to start on something else, something small to take with me on my trip back to Cleveland next week. Tuesday I will go through my stash and see what calls to me :)

Thank you for stopping by and please know I LOVE comments :)

Like a kid in a candy store

Before last week it had been a long time since I bought myself any stash, well that is all the past now it first started with a Memorial Day sale at J.J's Collectibles She always has such a wide selection of great stitching items and her shipping is SUPER FAST. This is what I picked up 40ct Lakeside Linen Vintage Sand dune, some very summery silks and after seeing Nicole's finish here I just HAD to have Shakespeare's Peddler "Ann Grant 1829" Make sure to go look at her beautiful finish :)

But my buying did not stop there Noooo like I said I was like a kid set lose in a candy store. I also went to 123Stitch and picked up a 28ct lakeside linen V.Meadow Rue, a Blackbird Design, and some Threadworx floss Mosaic and Dream scape which is on back order. The Purple fabric I bought from a member of 123Stitch. It is Sassy's Fabric in Royal purple

I was going to sit down and stitch before I headed into work tonight but it is so darn hot here right now my hands start sweating. I have air but I don't want to turn it on just yet. If I sit in front of the fan I am comfortable. I will however turn it on before DH comes home...

Well fellow followers I again thank you for stopping by. Please feel free to comment and become a follower so I can in turn follow you :)

Have a wonderful day!

Cute little blue bird

I am coming along nicely with Garden of Life by Blackbird Designs. The birds wings consisted of Smyrna stitch it adds a nice little detail to it. I have been trying to sit down every night that I don't work for at least two hours to get in a little stitching. This is working out pretty good and I can see great progress

June has been a very busy month so far, we are short staffed at work so that means when I put in a request for a day off I can guarantee that I wont get it. Next Saturday DH and I are lucky enough to be able to go to the U.S Open Golf Tournament. I tried to get the entire day off but no such luck. We will be able to enjoy the tournament till at least 2 then I will have to leave. Hopefully next week we are somewhat staffed again because I have just about had it. We all are feeling overworked and under appreciated lately.

But thankfully I have a caring husband and two happy little dogs to greet me at the end of the day. So life is not that bad. This is the face I saw before I left for work yesterday. He sure didn't want me to leave LOL

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend. Tomorrow DH and I have the day off. It is going to be in the upper 80's/90's here so we are headed to the beach. I have checked the tides and plan on going shell hunting at low tide. I am so grateful to live near the water.

Growing up in Cleveland,Ohio never did I imagine I would have lived in so many awesome places every state we have lived in holds a special place in my heart and while I know I probably wont live in this state forever I try to enjoy it as much as I can.

Hopefully this post didn't bore you to tears, as I did make it fairly long ;) Thank you for stopping by I enjoy your comments and hope you enjoyed your visit to my little blog
