Status photo...and sad news

Do you want the stitching update or the sad news first?

Well, lets get the sad news over with and finish up with the positive, right...

This morning I went out the front door and was greeted with SILENCE. No more chirping, no more squawking. Only SILENCE. The abondoned baby birdies were quiet. Poor things starved, I am sure. Next to the nest, I noticed the long, dark trail of ants. Damn those bugs! It bothered me that they were taking advantage of the situation. Sometime nature is hard to take. I decided that the best thing I could do, it take down that nest and disposit it and the baby bodies. I hope there is a special place for little birdies...

Now, for something more positive
Pineapple is coming along, however I am definitely getting sick of green! I am hoping to get a lot of stitching in today because I really need to get this finished up!

Yesterday was Robert (older son) last day of school...he is now a sophomore in high school. Matthew (younger son) finishes up today...he will be a 7th grader. Yikes! Who gave them permission to grow up? Both had a successful school year and look forward to a little break from schoolwork over the summer.

Tonight we have no hockey to drive to - just a nice evening at home. We are planning to get the grill going and cook up some good food for dinner (versus the quick-to-fix microwavable foods we serve up for the pre-hockey meals Monday-Thursday)...and then watch the Vancouver Canucks vs. Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Playoffs. A perfect recipe for a Friday night...especially when you throw in some stitching :)

Hope your Friday is going well. Until next time, remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!

awe, time at home with the family, the Barby, the food and the good ole hockey game. I hope everyone enjoys this evening.
Be always in stitches.

Oh no, the poor birdies! I wonder what happened.

Great progress on your pineapple. Enjoy the evening. I'm sure it's a welcome reprieve from your hectic schedule.

So sorry to hear about the little birds. I am sure there is a special place for their little souls.

The pineapple looks great! I hope you enjoy your relaxing evening at home! I know you dont get them too often.
