There we go...a better photo of the Pineapple I am stitching. I even got a little further than the grassy/leafy top since I posted that blurry, embarrassing photo.

I have made sure to get in a little stitching during this week, which always feels good. I love the way the needle feels in my hand and love to play with the colors of the thread. I am looking forward to getting in some stitching tonight while watching the NHL Playoffs - San Jose Sharks vs. Vancouver Canucks. While I know I am in Shark territory, I love the Nuckies...that is all I will say about that now.

Today is Friday - thank goodness! All of the plans and details are complete and I am ready for the upcoming tradeshow I have been working on at my job, so I am taking my normal Friday off. I am using today to get caught up on things around the house as well as just sometime for myself. I do need to get to the grocery store to stock up on things for the boys to eat while I am out of town for a couple of days to attend the tradeshow.

That is where most of my stress comes from, trying to get things organized for the boys while I am away for a couple of days. Between making sure that they get to all their activies and back home - school and hockey clinics...making sure that they have the right food for lunches, dinners and snacks before and after school/hockey and that DH is aware of all those things. We are blessed to have one of Matthew's (younger son) hockey friends nearby who have volunteered to help get him to and from the rink next Monday & Tuesday...DH will have to deal with Robert (older son). I know that things will work out and they will be able to get along without me, but...well, you know.

That is about all from here...time to get back to my "to do" list as well as my needle & thread.

Take care and remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!
