Today is Thursday. Earlier in the year, the company my husband works for decided to change the work schedule so that he works 9 hours a day for for two weeks and he gets to take every other Friday off. Since he was already working nine hours a day we were okay with it. Now that we are used to it, we enjoy it so much because today is his Friday and it is so nice having a 3 day weekend every other weekend. I didn't think something as simple as that would be so nice.
I was reading this book this morning called, "Overland in 1846: Diaries and Letters of the California-Oregon Trail. As I was reading it I was thinking of the trail being paved with these kinds of flowers in the spring. I love old diarys. This one has the old journals of the Reed-Donner Party.
I thought I would share a few things I worked on this week.
I have hit a mental block with my rooster. I need to do the edges, but I am thinking of just hooking over the words and the pointy things. Every time I go to hook Fowl Mood, I sit and think and end getting into a Foul Mood. :) So I am still thinking about it.
I finally finished the edges of my sheep rug and I just put it on the wall, next to my computer. On the west coast where I live, rug hooking is really not done, in fact I have yet to meet a single person in my town that has ever done it. Yesterday I had some company and my guest asked me what I had been doing so I showed her my rugs. To say she was speechless would be a understatement. I felt so bad as she stood there and tried to think of something nice to say. She wanted to know if I was going to put it on the floor.
This is the letters I have been working on for my latest project. I love how big the letters are and I am enjoying working on this.
Sorry this is so random, I have a house full of young adults. The young men are playing a board game, and the girls are making brownies and laughing in the kitchen. I am feeding them all tonight for dinner as they are going to go to the midnight showing of The Avengers. I had a few minutes before I started dinner.
Just think, my chicks are maybe hatching this weekend. I should get them next week! Soon there will be lots of pictures of chicks to look at instead of flowers. :)
Have a great Friday!
