NEWS!! Something exciting happened!!! I went shopping, WOO HOO. The first time since December I have gone off the compound and gone shopping. I went to the bookstore/craft store/computer store and picked up a few things to organize my cross stitch life and I found 2 issues of a cross stitch magazine I like to buy. Then I went grocery shopping. I wandered around the grocery store for about 1 1/2 hours, it's one of those mega/hyper/super stores so I looked in the household part of the store and found a CUTE baseball towel for my grandson. Several grocery items I hadn't seen in awhile so I bought them. I paid $5.06 for a 9.2 oz bag of Valentine Hershey's dark chocolate kisses. But I won't be going out shopping again any time soon since my husband didnt' like spending that long in the store. We left at 5 PM and didn't get home until almost 8 PM. I don't go out much but when I do, I take too long, so from now on, I'll just hand him the list, NO MATTER WHAT I NEED!
The internet is working better today so far. The message board seems to be fixed at the moment but I wonder for how long and when the next mess will happen. It seems to happen weekly.
I'm Excited!!! THE BOYS WENT BACK TO WORK!! Spring training is officially open! Not long now till opening day!
I finally got a notice that an order I placed from an online shop Superbowl sale is being shipped. That order was for beads and buttons for my blackwork SAL. Of course I won't get these beads and buttons until June but I will be able to add them at that time.
This is the progress I made on Scooba Dooba yesterday. Now it's time to put it aside and find something else to stitch on and get my projects for March organized.
AGAIN I wrote and posted this message at 11AM my time and it still does NOT show up when I view this blog! Finally at 4PM my time this post shows up.
A very intresting tid bit of history I read today:
1879 Frank W. Woolworth opened his first 5 and 10-cent store in Utica, New York.
That's where I was born and raised, I remember that store. The store is long closed now though.
