Time to get Back on Track

I feel as if I have lost 2 months of my life with this dumb move. And I have one more dumb month to get through! Next month we will be going to California for about a month to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. And while I'm excited to see family and share this very special mile stone with them, I am truly just ready to be settled. I don't want to be on the road anymore. We will fly there and then drive our truck back. UGH!

I cannot wait for September! Fall will be on its way (my favorite season) and I can hopefully get things all unpacked, and be settled and ready to stitch the fall and winter away. I miss having a routine and enjoying my hobbies.

But! We still have 2 more weeks at least until we leave for Cali. So, I am going to try to get back some semblance of a routine. At least with the stitching. I am gonna pick up my rotation once again. So for the next 5 days I will work a bit on my ornaments. The past few weeks I have been able to work SOME on the ornies here and there, and also "Web of life" as well.

I had started the first ornament in the third series of the book of ornaments I was working on, which is called "Winter Fun" and I am almost finished with it.  All I have left to do is white fill in and backstitching. I am almost out of white floss though, but my stash of floss gets here Tuesday, so I should be good to go.

I have also been thinking about ordering the aida I need for a few new projects. But that may need to wait for September after our visit to California. No hurry.

Well, that is all the rambling for me here today!  I really need to hit up my feedly and leave a few comments on all your lovely stitching!! I have not been able to keep on top of my blog reading. So I hope to pick that up once again as well.  I have seriously been thinking about cutting the internet out of my life for a bit. Not going online for senseless useless time wasting. Only go on the days I update my blog, or to update my goodreads account.  No more FB, no more twitter, but then I think of all the blog reading I will miss out on....oh what a dilemma! I derive so much inspiration and motivation through the blogs I love and follow! So, we shall see...

Thank you for reading! hope your weekend is going well! Next time I will post photos- promise!

I hope your time in CA will be relaxing and refreshing and that you will feel totally rejuvenated and ready to go when you get home in Sept. It's easy to get distracted (or in my case obsessed) with the computer. That's why I've never joined FB or any of the other social media. Pinterest and my Blogs are time-consuming enough for me! haha
