Hello!

Well, I guess my great blogging streak died! lol...This month I've only blogged here once, and that was because I had a finish. Oh well. I find that because I have so many hobbies that I enjoy I tend to rotate them, sporadically, right now it's reading,and Facebook.

I am very close to a finish on my "Read 60 books this year" goal...I only have 2 more to go. I just finished "The Fountainhead" By Ayn Rand....Great book, but loooooong, not "War and Peace" kinda long, but still pretty lengthy.

I have a question.... I have been trying to sign into goodreads, and for some reason it won't let me, but I can sign into all my other pages (blogs, facebook etc) is anyone else who is a goodreads.com member having trouble? Just curious!

But! This isn't my book blog, it's my stitching blog, so I shall share all about my stitching...the two stitches I've stitched in the past 10 days look very nice....evenly spaced...a nice color I think...the floss laid just right...oooooh!!! Ok...I just have not been stitching too much, a little, I actually finished the two pumpkins that are at the foot of the scarecrow guy in "Midnight Watchman" and that's about it.

Last week, I had an appointment to see about getting my wisdom teeth pulled. And my blood Pressure was THROUGH THE ROOF. So, he sent me down to Family Practice to have my blood pressure monitored for 5 days, this means going to the hospital on base everyday for 5 days and sitting in a waiting room for EVER just so they can see me for 3 minutes and take my blood pressure...."Geeze, doc,I have no idea why it'd be so high." :/ So, I don't know why, but that sorta put me off my stitching game. Been dealing with that and I just have been tending to reach for my book whenever I sit to relax...or I sit and go on Facebook, Or I have long ranting yells at my computer and threaten to throw it out the window when I can't sign into goodreads.com.

So? See? Been busy...just not with the needle...well, unless the needle in the blood pressure gauge counts?... No, I didn't think so either....sigh....

And such is life. =)

Don't feel bad. I have a ton of hobbies. Well, not a ton, but enough to make me a little ditzy at times. That's kinda why I have 2 blogs. One for this and the other for poetry. I was debating doing one for my photography, but not sure yet.

ftggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg (that is what my cat has to say about that! she jumped on my laptop.)

Ayn Rand is a great author!

Don't feel to bad about not posting in a while. I haven't posted on my blog in a longgg time.

60 books a year what a goal. Wish I can do it. I.m lucky if I finish one every 3 months.

Hugs Sunny

There is a possibility that goodreads is not available outside of the USA. That is true of a lot of music sites, like Pandora, but could be true of goodreads also. Personally I like librarything.com. I have logged all of the books I have read for over two years on it. I love it.
