Is there anybody out there?

That Pink Flyod song "Is anybody out there" is playing in my head as I write this post

I'm hanging my head in shame at my lack of posting and reading those blogs that I follow. In my time away from not posting I seem to have lost a follower :( I am sorry I do not update this here sad sad blog of mine more often. I think once summer ends I will become a regular blogger again. But I want to thank those that have stuck around and are always so kind with leaving comments when I do post. I truly appreciate your visits and comments to my blog.

This month was extremely busy. Flying to see family back East and driving down south to spend time in the mountains with my sister in law and her family left little time for stitching. My WIP's in my basket are really missing me.I am sad to have neglected them for so long.
I did start a new project last month and this is where I am as of today

I decided to go with a blue and brown color combo. DMC 807/869 also using Simply Shaker thread in Blackboard

We spent a few days in Southern California's San Bernadino Mountains. This is a view from our boat we rented on Big Bear Lake. My husband lived here as a kid and when we use to live in L.A this would be our weekend trip. My sister in Law lives here now so it was a perfect excuse to make the 7 hour drive down for a visit. We had the most relaxing visit and we were both sad to leave. There is just something about the mountains that melt your stress away. My husband is a different person when we are on the lake or in the mountains.

I am headed to the Gilroy Garlic Festivle tomorrow with some girlfriends. I tried to get my Hubby to come along with us but he hates garlic and the smell of it so he has decided to stay home and take the dogs to the dog park.... I just hope I don't consume to much garlic and become a smelly mess LOL

It should be a fun day this is my first time going to this in the 9 years I have lived in the Bay Area. I need to remember to bring a hat and sunscreen it's going to be HOT HOT HOT.

Well if you have stuck through this long post I do appreciate it and hope you have a lovely Saturday.
Take Care Friends!!

Miss Me?

It Sure has been a wonderful week. I finally went back "home" to Ohio,it had been two whole years since I was last there. It was just what the doctor ordered. Even though my time was stretched I managed to squeeze enough time to see those that I love.
This is where I spent the weekend.

Friday - Sunday we had a family reunion in Virginia for my Dad's side of the family. There were over 120 people there this year. The last time I was in VA for a reunion was 12 years ago. It was a great feeling re-connecting with everyone. My Aunt really puts together a wonderful reunion with the help of everyone. I was so sad when I left on Sunday. I could have stayed there for awhile :) But I need to come back home to my Husband who was holding down the fort here in California. And look what I came home to

The first tomatoes of the season. And my are they good I had one for breakfast, you know just to make sure it was fit to eat hehehe.

I am so excited about my plant it is doing extremely well. I look forward to eventually having a yard that I can grow all sorts of goodies in and can what I grow just like my Maw Maw did.

Well friends I hope you have a beautiful day.
