I would have to say that I have had a very good week!
First of all, I FOUND MY GLASSES! They disappeared in the middle of the night in early December. I say disappeared because I lay them on my dresser before I go to bed every night so when I awake they are right there. One morning in early December, my glasses suddenly were not there! I looked everywhere in on and round the dresser and under the dresser and even thoroughly cleaned my room. No glasses. My younger daughter and husband even looked. My older daughter said it wasn't her problem that I lost my glasses and refused to help look. Yesterday, when I opened a drawer of my dresser to find a pair of nylons for church, my glasses were right in the front of the drawer. I had looked in that drawer last week for something and didn't see them there then. But they are found now! I am so happy!! I was getting beyond frustrated having to go between my single lens glasses good enough that I could drive (though not in bad weather or at night) and sort of watch television and my one lens bifocals that I used to read and cross stitch. I didn't like wearing those outside the house though.
I was asked for a picture of my Isaiah project, so ask and you shall receive! I am also pleased with my progress on IS 40:31. I plan to tackle the eagle's head and then feathers this week. I had really wished I had more stitching time this past week, but I had decided to go to the YMCA a couple of different days and then I had to do lots of laundry - wash here and dry ant laundromat until our dryer either gets replaced or fixed. I also did some cleaning. Sarah and Rachel also got on the cleaning wagon, so now I have a nice looking house!
I spent no time on the computer this weekend because of the housework on Saturday by the girls and on Sunday Sarah's classmate came over and they were working on a biology project. In both cases "teenage" music was being played, and honestly, I can only tolerate that music for so long. Also any and all music that is played in this house must either be done on the computer or karaoke machine. I hope to get up-to-date with everyone shortly.
I will not be on the computer at all tomorrow though, as tomorrow is Election Day here in Illinois and I am an Election Judge. I must be at the polling place at 5:15 in the morning. The polling places open at 6:00AM. We are open until 7:00PM. I will probably be able to leave at about 8:00. By that time I will be way to tired to even think about the computer!
I hope everyone has a great week! Happy stitching!
