Friday I did a little stitching.  I didn’t get much done but did finish the square border for the next Holiday Snapper I am going to (try to) finish this month. 

Yesterday we had a lazy day watching movies.  So I took advantage and did some stitching.


Today we went to church, Panera, the bookstore and Wal-mart.  It wouldn’t be Sunday without a trip to Wal-mart is seems.  But we needed cereal and Gatorade so it couldn’t be avoided.  After we came home for a bit we headed back out to go see the Kit Kittridge: An American Girl movie and get some dinner.  The movie was very good.  Hannah and I enjoyed it and can’t wait to add it to our DVD collection.  It wasn’t really Sean’s kind of movie but that is because he is a big ol’ stinkin’ boy. 

A little while ago Sean and Daisy were sitting on the sofa.  Sean asked Daisy to fetch the remote, her reaction… she looked at him for a few seconds before crawling to the other end of the couch

 trying to hide under the throw pillow.  Her point…she doesn’t fetch!

Today is my favorite holiday.  I hope everyone has a wonderful time celebrating, having cookouts, watching fireworks and remembering those who have and are serving so that we can celebrate our freedom.

We have had a wonderful day so far.  We were up early so that I could put the ribs in the crock-pot…will be putting on the grill later… then out for breakfast at Cracker Barrel before heading to the first showing of Wall-E which happens to be a very sweet movie.  We went out for a little treat and got ice cream at Cold Stone.  Later we will be having ribs with fruit salad and watermelon margaritas.  Yum-Yum!  I also made a cream (sauce?) for the fruit salad which I found at my favorite website when looking for something good to eat.

I finished reading Mr Monk and the Two Assistants last night.  I am a big fan of the show Monk and really wanted to like the book.  It wasn’t bad, but for now I think I will stick to the show.  I might read some of the other books later though.

I am also stitching a wee bit.  I made a little progress on Circus of Circles.

Well, what can I say?  I haven’t been doing very well with my goals this year.  And I didn’t do well this month…once again.  I have barely picked up my stitching.  My June Goals were as follows…

  • Stitch on Circus of Circles ~ Just so my goals wouldn’t look so bad…I pulled this out and put a few stitches in it before the month was over…that counts!
  • Stitch on & Finish My Sunshine by La D Da ~ I stitched on this but didn’t finish it.  I was working on the border found a big mistake in the counting of the border and ended up frogging it out.  Then I put it aside in disgust.  I have finally started working on it again.
  • Stitch on & finish the teacher’s end of year gift ~ Finished, just in time.  I hope her teacher liked it.
  • Stitch on Ezmeralda’s House by Brightneedle or An Advent Calendar by Hobb Nobb Designs ~  Nope, I looked at Ezzie’s house a couple of times, even took it with me when I went out somewhere I thought I might get a moment or two to stitch, but didn’t actually stitch on it.

This month after I finished the teacher’s gift I decided to start something new.  So I dug out the kitted up Bent Creek Holiday Snappers.  Which I realized later wasn’t even on my goal list of the year.  Oh well.  I did finish one square but then put it aside to actually stitch on some goals…not much happened there.
