Yesterday I posted for the first time in over a year. I am using my new Mac. It is still unfamiliar to me and I am learning as I go. The published post did not look like the draft. It was one big mess so I deleted it. I'm trying again.
Like so many of you I have been doing a lot of stitching. This is Potter Hill by The Goode Huswif. It's an oldie and is so sweet and fun. I have the perfect place for it. It will ship out to Virginia for framing very soon.
This little buggy was my anniversary gift this year. Thirty nine years! Can't wait to fill it with tiny pumpkins! Annie turned thirty five the day after our anniversary. As always, her requested gift was "paper". Drawing paper, markers, stickers...these are the things that have fueled her creatvity and kept us going these many months.
Annie and I were jabbed several weeks after Mr.MW. Annie was very worried about it. We prepared her the best we could and she rolled up her sleeve like a trooper...but not before she looked the pharmacist in the eye and told him, "I'm a screamer". Of course, she did not scream but Mr.MW and I got a good laugh out of it.
We are still staying close to home. Florida is a big mess right now and getting worse every day. Mr.MW still does the grocery shopping once a week and I have Whole Foods deliver once each week. I am grateful for these services as it cuts down on exposure. After getting jabbed I made it to The Fresh Market twice and to the Dollar store once. On the trips to Fresh Market I filled the cart with plants and flowers and candles. It was all about a liberated splurge on fun stuff. Now, we are back to laying low. I don't know what people who don't pull some sort of needle or hook do to keep sane!
My sweet fellow still brings me flowers from Publix every week. I dried the roses and they were so pretty, but finally had to toss them because of dust.
I hope you are all well...and sane. I'll leave this post up even though it is still squirrely.
Enjoy the day,
Welcome back! I wouldn't blame the posting issues on the new Mac - a few months ago there was much gnashing of teeth and expressions of dismay over some Blogger changes. I did just what Annie did - look away! Didn't feel a thing either time. The last year and a half, I've been so happy to already have hobbies and stashes, I could work from them for quite a while! It seems like so many hobby supplies ran into unexpected demand and then supply shortages. Of course, my least favorite so-called "hobby" never seems to run out of the only supply it needs - weeds!ReplyDelete
Thanks for coming by. I hear you about the stashes! Too many bugs...too much rain for gardening this time of year in Florida. Good to hear from you :)Delete
So good to see a post from you to know that you are keeping yourself and Annie busy. I love your Potter Hill cross stitch. It's a beauty.ReplyDelete
I postponed getting my vaccine as it seemed that there was difficulty in getting enough vaccine and the constant delay. But now I've got my two vaccine but still wear a mask and keep my distance from strangers and i still sanitize.
Take care and welcome back.
Big hugs to you and Annie.
Thanks, Julia. We are well supplied with N95 masks. Good to hear from you!ReplyDelete
Yes welcome back I have thought of you often and hoped you were faring well. We too have had the vaccine but continue to wear the mask when out shopping. I have thought that too what do you do if you had no hobbies I hooked so many rugs the three months I was off it was crazy. Your stitching is lovely and glad you are keeping to it.ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting, Cathy. Would love to see some of those rugs!ReplyDelete
Well hullo there! I saw your prior post pop up and thought it sounded familiar and, yes, noticed I had commented almost a year ago. Guess my memory bank isn't entirely broke. I really love the Potter's Hill stitch....you said it's and "oldie," but I am not familiar with it. I just might have to add it to my (overflowing) dance card. I see Annie is as impossibly limber as ever LOL. Happy Belated Anniversary (LOVE your buggy) and Happy Belated Birthday Sweet Annie! ~Robin~ReplyDelete
Thanks for coming by, Miss Robin. Annie is basically made of rubber!Delete
So happy to know you are all as well as possible through this mess! What a gorgeous gift! Just before the mess starts, we had started seriously walking as part of rehab for my knee replacements. And we continued once things shut down. Now we walk almost every day, even through snow and heat, 4 miles. While I don’t actually feel the endorphins kicking in, I know they kept me sane not being able to see our kids and grand daughter for so many months.ReplyDelete
Thanks for coming by. Yes, exercise is a great stress reliever. Keep it up!Delete
So happy to see your post! Happy belated Birthday to Annie and also Happy belated Anniversary. I have been cross stitching and also reading a lot! Stay well!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much. You stay well, too. Thanks for visiting.Delete
Robyn, So glad to have you back, and glad you and your family are doing well. Needlework has kept me busy, but I am really a home body so we are content here.ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting, JoAnn. We are happy at home, as well.ReplyDelete

Thank you blog admin for this wonderful post,As a sign of gratitude for how my wife was saved from PCOS & Gastro Disorder and herpes, I decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.ReplyDelete
My wife suffered pcos in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because she was my everything and the symptoms were terrible, she always complained of heavy menstruation, and she always had difficulty falling asleep . We tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure her. I searched for a cure and I saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many others with similar body problems, and they left the contact of this doctor who has the cure to pcos . I never imagined polycystic ovary syndrome. has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my wife will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my wife used it and in one months time she was fully okay even up till this moment she is so full of life. polycystic ovary syndrome. has a cure and he has herbal cure for Herpes,HIV/Aids,Diabetes,Neuro Disease,Cancer,Back Pain,COPD,Parkinson, and other disease you can visit Dr Itua herbal center website to read more www.drituaherbalcenter.com or email email@example.com on how to get the medication. Thanks admin for such an informative blog.
