The Acorns are falling early this year.....

Things I did today:

  •  saw large, big, green acorns falling. Almost afraid to walk to the car in fear of getting a head trauma. Isn't this a bit early? Last year we had dents in the car from the large acorns.
  • walked into work to find an early birthday surprise from Dahlonega clinic staff. Yummy Red Velvet Cake and paper balloons with my name all over the clinic! Lyn is the talented one and creative with art.
  • ate lunch at Pizza Hut with hubbie. Personal Pan pizza with mushrooms, black olives, and extra cheese.
  • drifted off into the "non-grocery" items in the Walmart and refrained from purchasing a sleep set that said on the shirt "Little Miss Sunshine". That would be hilarious because I'm not Little Miss Sunshine first thing in the I resisted and put it back.
  • went through the fabric section of Walmart and drooled over the September fabric colors just arrived for quilts. Beautiful faded teals and chocolate browns. Caved and got 1 yard of each. Have no idea what I will do with them.
  • got more non-edible items than edible.
  • got an Elle magazine, which was about 1 inch thick and had Julia Roberts Eat Pray Love model shots and article in it.......Great pics and articles.
  • stopped into an antique/treasure store to get a few baskets and little items, because I need more baskets.....NOT!
  • didn't see a cloud in the sky and the humidity is alot lower.
  • saw the world in DMC on the ride home from work through the country side and possibilities for good sampler motifs and verses especially for the old churches in the area.
  • thought for a second Abbie ate my wedding rings off the chest in the family room. What a dilemma until we finally found them. Where were they? under about 75 skeins of threads on the kitchen table. I was about ready to take her in for an X ray to find them.
  • found out today that gray and camel are big-time Fall fashion colors this year. Craving for an Ann Taylor camel tote just won't get out of my mind. I'm trying hard to get that out of my mind as it's quite costly.
  • found out I had 8 hours to get the house ready for an appraisal and it's a disaster. Just gave up on that, hoping it doesn't matter. I do have to sleep at least 3 hours before going to work again to solve pelvic pains and menstrual dysfunctions/ hot flashes, mood swings and whatever else.
  • went into a furniture store to look for one particular item and instead sat in every Lazy-boy chair, testing the ones on sale for a possible new stitch chair. While sitting in one for about 10 minutes, I finally came to my senses that the economy is not the best time to buy a chair.
  • started stitching a small amount on the Quiet Sunday Mornings pinkeep for a bowl filler/ basket filler.
  • wished my kids would at least answer a letter or phone call but instead of hoping and then getting disappointed again, gave up.
  • final thought before bed~~~  I have 16 hours before vacation begins. That's my final thought I'm going to keep saying before I fall asleep.


  1. Wow, what a list of things you did today. I'm exhausted just reading about it! I need whatever vitamins you are taking :).

    Is there a Happy Birthday coming your way? Hope you have a wonderful birthday! And here's wishing you a very enjoyable and relaxing vacation.

    Take care,
    Carol in AZ

  2. Sounds like a good day, overall.

    I have sad news (for me); the Walmarts locally here recently stopped selling fabric. NO Fabric! This means that the only "Local" place is a Joann's about 45 minutes away. Guess I COULD go into the city, but that's a lot of hassle.

    Enjoy your vacation!
