Never Say Never
Here's a photo of a wonderful hummingbird eating at my new feeder in our backyard. I love to watch them fly around!
I returned from our trip a few days ago. Going on a trip is always fun, but it also always reminds me how much I love to come home. The trip was great overall, and I even hit upon some good luck while on the trip. I'm very grateful for that, and feel very, very lucky.
Yesterday I drove with my mom about 150 miles to visit with some cousins. We had a complete blast, and I somehow bet the waiter was glad to see us leave after we sat in that restaurant for four hours. We all live far apart, so we choose to meet up at a central location. There's nothing like talking with people you've known your whole life. What a history you share.
Tomorrow I am hosting a small gathering at my home. I'm having a group of students come here, and a few of them will be giving me some cooking lessons of their native cuisine. Knowing them they'll bring some more food, but just in case they don't bring any food that means that today will be spent preparing a casserole and salad for them to enjoy together. Busy times for me, but that's fine as I've had such a relaxing summer so far.
On the stitching front, last evening on the way home from my "cousin gathering" I stopped at a craft store and bought some little sticker numbers with the DMC colors on them. You place them on the thread bobbins. I love them in a 'nerdalicious' way. I started putting them on one box of my many boxes of floss last night, but stopped at one point due to exhaustion. (It was after ten at that point.) Have you seen these little numbers? Do you use them? When I first saw these stickers I never thought I'd use them, but as they say, "Never say never."
