It's Monday and I woke up to snow in North Georgia

This morning my sleepy head woke up to the sound of our Labs barking alot.....way too much so I'm grouchy this morning but by myself thank goodness. I definitely am not a morning person. Night owl is more of a descriptor.
 I took these next 2 weeks off to do as my friend tells me at work  "you gotta get yoesef togethah girl!"  I always laugh at her. She tells me this when she works with me and I get a little draggy or side-tracked. She also knows me and turns the little radio on and anything else to get me moving so we can get off at a decent hour!  Adrienne if you are reading this, thank you. Your words stick with me even on days off!  LOL

Sleepily I always reach for the coffee pot first thing, with my brain thinking decaf is going to perk me up....ha!
And as I fill the pot and look up out the kitchen's SNOWING today.
Ok, one day 75 and sunny, next day rainy and cold, then next day is now snowing.  It's not sticking though but it's so pretty to watch, I have to admit.

Then I look down and see this note from Bodyguard. He had to leave early for the big city of Atlanta to a meeting and tiptoes through the house so I won't awaken, because, like I said I'm not a pleasant morning greeter usually!  ;)

I just want you to see this pad of paper.

Isn't that funny? Somebody gave me this paper long while back and it makes me laugh.

So, definitely doing some stitching this morning as I watch the snow flakes and I may do a little online shopping too.

I'm actually looking forward in the mail for some threads I ordered so we'll see what the day brings today. The mailman and I are pretty good friends now as I live in the country and do most of my shopping through the mail.

Haven't done housework in so long, I digress on that. Who has time for housework, right?

Another thing I'm working on which will give me me exercise is walking up and down 14 stairs to the "stitching studio/guest bedroom" to begin to store my linens and organize more threads.

So, enough now to keep me busy and later I will snap a pic of my sampler wall and show you something that came in the mail I added to it.

Till later,


  1. Sounds like you are going to have a great day of stitching !!!

  2. if you can write "I love you" in the dust your house is a home with love AND a protective covering, and those cob webs in the corner?, yeah, Irish Lace. Have fun up those 14 stairs.
    Be always in stitches.

  3. Sounds like a perfect day to be at home to me -- except for waking up because of barking dogs!

  4. Sounds like a perfect day to stitch.

  5. Glad to hear that you are taking care of yourself. Enjoy your "me" time!

    Happy Stitching!

  6. I hope get plenty of wonderful stitchy time today Jennifer! And BG gets big points for that sweet note.

  7. Enjoy your time off, you deserve to have time for yourself. We're alike, I'm not a morning person, I'm a night owl, I can't wake up early, I go to a class wednesday mornings and I have a hard time trying to keep my eyes peeled!!!
    Lucky your having snow!, I'd like to see it once again in my life!!!

  8. Enjoy your time off and get a serious case of stitchy ass!
