Finally! A photo!!!

Yes!! Its true! After all these boring posts without any stitching updates, I finally have a photo of what I have been working on, so without further ado, here is my progress on InK Circles BoInk:

I know it's not the greatest photo (It's down right crappy, but it does show what I have done!! Wow, not having the computer to play around on has really helped me get lots of stitching and reading done (I've read 34 books with a total of over 13,000 pages so far this year!)

I will try to get a better photo soon! Thanks for stoppin' by!

I'm back!

We got the internet installed in our house today, and so now I will be busy reading all the posts I have missed out on and able to post here as well, more frequently!!! I feel like I have really been out of the loop! I have tried to keep up the reading of the blogs I have in my googlereader by reading them on my phone, so I am sorta catching up, but wow! There are a lot of feeds in there! I am not sure how soon I will be able to post a photo of my own stitching as well, I have to check with the hubs and see if he can help me download, since I am on his computer, not my own (it hasn't arrived month!) and not sure how to download photos off my camera onto this comp.

Thank you to all of you who commented on my last (sad) post! lol. I am starting to get all settled in and actually enjoying myself. I go for walks (because it's super safe here) and I read alot, (still) and stitch alot (still), and now I have the net I will be on here as well! With all my blogging friends, I don't think boredom or loneliness will be a frequent visitor...I hope not anyway! You guys are all so wonderful, and I am truly enjoying catching up on reading your blogs! I will try to comment here and there, but there is so much to get through, I may not be able to comment on everyones...sorry about that! But do know, I'm back!!!! And I AM reading you, and enjoying all your updates, and loving all your lovely friendly comments here at my blog as well!

Thank you all for your wonderful friendship during this new chapter of my life! (The Japanese chapter! lol!)

Ok, things are good, we got a car, (a Toyota 4-runner) which we pick up tomorrow, just in time to load up the stuff we have at temporary lodging and move into our new place.

Today was rough. I started to get lonely and miss friends that I could call on the phone and I miss my dog, then add constant rain for the past week, and I was ready to just go to bed and call it quits!

I'm lonely, I need to stand on the corner with a sign that says "Will work for friends" I guess...::sigh::

Greetings from Okinawa Japan

Well, after long delays in Seattle, first due to bad weather and then to a mechanical problem, we finally made it to Japan! It is beautiful here! Lots of green stuff...grass and trees! The weather is a bit more hot and humid than I prefer, but thank goodness for Air conditioning!

I had alot of extra time for reading and stitching while I was delayed in Seattle, which was nice. I am going at a pretty good clip on BoInk. I have almost an entire quarter finished! Since I am using a community government computer at the hotel right now, I am not able to post photos yet, but we should have a house by the end of the week, and a shipment of stuff, which my hubby's computer is in, so should be able to show photos soon!

One thing I was really worried about was not being able to take my stitching on the plane, and I had NO problems at all!!! I ended up getting a clover cutter, so left the scissors in my checked baggage, and no one said a thing about the needle. Of course, we were traveling on military orders, and no one gives you any trouble if you have orders, it was the easiest air travel experience I have ever had!! It was great!

Tomorrow we have meetings all day about life here, and I think we get tested for our drivers license too, since they drive on the opposite side of the road here, we have to have a Japanese drivers license! So, tomorrow will be really busy!! Well, off to enjoy the nice evening weather, as it is too hot to be out during the day, so will be going out to exercise and such in the evening, or early mornings, unless I go to the gym, which is a long walk from the hotel.

Hope everyone is doing well, and getting lots of stitching in. I am slowly trying to get caught up on all the feeds in my googlereader...and from the look sof it, you guys have been stitching like crazy!! Talk to you later! Hopefully when I post again I will have photos to share!
