May 20

I was miserably sick last week with SOMETHING, I don't know if it was food poisoning, bad food, an allergic reaction to something I ate but it was horrible. Started at 6 am Monday morning and I was in the bathroom every hour of not more often, diareah, vomiting, sweating, chills, my skin felt like sandpaper. I tried to sleep but I kept waking up every 15 minutes or so thinking I had slept for hours. I was in bed all day Monday and most of Tuesday. Everything I ate or drank came out one end or the other Finally by Wednesday I was feeling better and got the house cleaned up.

The Yankees are doing so shitty this year, it's horrible. This weekend is the Subway series with the Mets and they have lost both games so far. The weekend I get home is another go round with Boston in Boston. Too bad I can't just skip over to Fenway for the Friday game but my son and his family are anxious to see me. My son told me last night that we will probably be staying at his house the night I get home so we don't miss the game Friday night since I won't get in to Concord until 6:30 in the evening. As long as he can keep me awake to watch the game, but watch out for Mom's snoring, moaning and farting when I fall askeep on the sofa. I don't think I would be awake enough to drive the rest of the 2 hours home with my car anyway.

I've been trying to get organized for my vacation. Getting things put away and packed. I sorted my cross stitch fabrics that will work for my board exchanges this summer, put patterns and projects aside that I will stitch this summer or give away and stitched projects for exchanges. I am so not organized yet!

My DH got me another sweet surprise the other day. He got me a new laptop to take on my road trips this summer! It's an HP with wifi access. I'm so excited but he's still getting it set up for me so I haven't had a chance to play with it yet.

I've finished only a couple of projects for exchanges so far.

This is one for a Summer stitchery exchange on Cross Stitch Crazy and if the exchange falls through I can keep the project and won't have to stitch it for myself again. It's called Sensationally Summer by A Whismical Element stitched on hand dyed fabric with assorted flosses. I just need to add a pair of flip flops next to the blanket.

This one is for an exchange gift on one of my boards. I'm not saying which exchange on which board. The pattern is by my friend Velda I stitched it on 20 count Valerie fabric that has silver threads through it and it's stitched with assorted flosses.
Hopefully I'll have an ornament done sometime today but I'll still need to make 2 more. I need to start on a bookmark for the exchange on the Needle Nook board.
It's up over 100 here almost every day now so I pretty much stay inside.

Glad you are feeling better! Your new finishes are adorable.

My husband's best friend works for the Mets, and offered us tickets to Saturday's game, but the weather was terrible, so we passed. We'd love to have tickets for the Red Sox series this weekend!
