Ok Velda for some reason thinks I have quirks and I have no idea where she comes up with this idea but well you tell me if I have quirks. :)

1. I have a slight issue with wanting to vacuum the carpet in the living room each time I spot the slightest crumb, some say OCD I say just like to keep things clean.

2. My pantry is organized into different sections and if I find something in the wrong spot I must move it immediately.

3. I can't stand finding loose hair on me, it drives me insane.

4. I have to plan my meals in advance and I do so by looking at three separate store ads, finding coupons, and making a list and I also go to a fourth store to see what I can find there when I am near it. I can not just go to the store without coupons or a list I get slightly crazy if forced to do so.

5. I don't like uneven amounts in my savings account, it must be a whole amount no change. Don't ask even I can't understand that one.

6. I can only handle so much spontaneity in life, if my schedule gets too off course I become very unfriendly.

Ok after looking at this list I must admit, I need to get some serious professional help and I am glad I have a friend like Velda who loves me despite my quirks.

I will have to update this post with my list when I get home when I have my list of blogs in front of me.

Fall Into Reading 2008

It's that wonderful time of year when leaves are turning, well not where I live in South Texas where fall consist of leaves turning brown and then falling off the tree. I sometimes miss the Autumns in the North where I grew up, the crisp air with vibrant shades of leaves, pumpkins waiting to be carved and cooked, apples ripe and ready for picking. Fall is such a nice time to slow down after the hetic summer of running here and there trying to have as much fun as possible. Sure school is back in session but things seem to fall into place and everyone has their schedule to follow. I have so many books on my to read list and I can't wait to get started. I am taking the challenge and hope to finish them all.

September Stitching Goal

This month I have planned the following:
Start Harvest Fairy by Mirabilia
Frame The Bookshelf by LHN
Frame a Halloween piece I received two years ago
Start and Finish a Halloween pattern yet to be chosen.

I finished The Bookshelf at the beginning of August and at that time I had very little done on Colonial Houses but I am happy to report that I have one house to complete and the bottom row and then it's done! I was hoping to have it completed by today but I can only sit still for so long but I made great progress this week considering last Monday I was only half way done with the piece and now I only have about 1/4 left to stitch on it for completion. I am going to try to finish in between breaks on Harvest Fairy but I am determined to finish Harvest Fairy and frame it by Thanksgiving this year. Will update with pictures as the month progresses.
