Today was one of those days where you feel like you're in a time warp, sorta. I got very little sleep, because i work a night job so I don't get to bed unitl 4 in the morning, well, I had to get up at 8 to take the car over to get looked at. We've had an exhaust leak for a long time, and it's awful, the stink, and the heat and the noise. Well, the heat fromt he leak was burning a hole into a rubber valve that is right near the leak, so in order to fix the valve we had to fix the leak first, because obviously if you fix the valve and not the leak you'll just end up with another hole burnt in to the valve again.
So, I took it over and I sat for about an hour, but I had a ton of things to do today so I told them my husband would come pick it up after work, and I caught the bus home. And I really wanted to hurry and get home, because we had really bad thunderstorms predicted for this afternoon, and the walk from the bus stop to my house isn't long, but I didn't want to be caught out in that junk.
So, I'm tired, and I think I really should lay back down, but then the thunder started, and I can't sleep through all that noise, so I get to work instead and get some laundry done, and do some general cleaning up and then I started making the numberous phone calls I needed to make and then I just puttered around, I don't even really know what I did all day. I know I didn't do any stitching and I spent a lot of time online. And then hubby got home and I ended up finally laying down for about two hours, then I got up and made dinner, and we watched National Treasure. Which we'd seen in the theater, but I love Nicolas Cage, so we bought it. And then I got back online and have just been surfing the web, and reading blogs and I think I am gonna go and watch some TV and work on some stitching. I am not sure what project yet, but we shall see. Probably either Cheryl's bouquet, which by the way thank you all for your patience on waiting for that progress photo. It should be coming soon. I don't know. it's also a new month so I need to get going on my May Erica Micheal's freebie. Well, I am off to get comfy and stitch my evening away until it is time to go to work! Bye!

I used to work nights and you never feel like you catch up on sleep. I haven't stitched much this week either. Hope you have a better weekend.

Thanks for the comments on my blog. We lived in northern California for 25 years (Cupertino, Half Moon Bay, Moss Beach, and Burlingame) before moving to Nevada in 2003. So we kept the condo we bought when my husband was working on his MFA (Photography) at the Art Academy SF. We thought we would sell it, but it is handy since he is still on the board of a local art museum and comes here almost every month.

Yes, I am glad that Nevada has In-N-Out and Safeway stores (OK, Von's, but same difference) and even an OK (but not as good as Texas) BBQ place (Lucille's).

If you read my latest entry you can see that I have a LOT of UFOs, but I don't let long bouts of not being able to stitch make me depressed. I've finished more projects in the first four months of this year than in the last four YEARS. You might go a week without stitching, but you will come back!

Enjoy Texas, Lone Star beer? New Braufels Smokehouse? Riverwalk in San Antonio? The beaches of Galveston? Really, really good TexMex food? There are some cool things there.

I have days like that too when you feel so unproductive - quite a few actually. Hope you get lots done this weekend. x

Hi Lana: Thank you for the nice comments in my blog! What part of Texas are you from? I am near Houston here. We were very lucky at my house as we didn't get the huge downpour, but my poor husband had to drive home in terrible rain, lightening and could hardly see the road coming in from Houston. It has been a very wet few months. Good stitching weather though!! Debby :)

Have fun stitching. I've seen National Treasure a couple of times and really enjoy it. Looking forward to hearing about what you decide to stitch on, and seeing some update pictures.
