Sunday Randomness

1.  Now that I'm back to blogging, I'm also back to blog reading.  I decided to go thru my list of blogs I followed to weed out some of the ones that just don't blog anymore.  If you haven't posted in 2 years, you were deleted. I discovered something interesting.  Bloggers have either stopped blogging  3 years ago, or are still blogging full steam ahead!!!  It's been fun trying to catch up on everybody!

2.  Last Saturday was a particular stressful day, and the cuticles on my right hand were a mess.  I tried knitting but the yarn kept rubbing on one of my sore spots.  Bandaids didnt help since the bandaid catches on the yarn.  Hmmmmm, I will pull out some cross stitch!!!  The sad thing?  I could not find ANY!!!!  No big projects, no little kits, nothing!  I know I have some in a bag somewhere, but it must be buried somewhere in this place.  And all the main supplies are in the storage unit.  ~sigh~  Just when I am in the mood to stitch.....

SO I stopped by the stora…

Three Down.......

... five to go.

Theatre is still alive and well here at Casa del Apartamente and Friday was opening night for My Fair Lady. 

There are 20 shows and 1 friends and family dress rehearsal and I have been to every one so far.  Today will mark the first performance that I will not be attending.  I'm so used to seeing all the things my kids are in, but when they perform in Main Stage theatre, I cant be at every. single. one.  Thank goodness for comp tix and volunteering opportunities! 

So later today I will be dropping Baby Girl off at the theatre and not be watching her perform.  What shall I do?  I could clean, I could do laundry, I could empty out some boxes that have been lingering around for almost 2 years.  I should really work on my bolero.

Or I could lay in bed and watch a movie. And while Eliza could have danced all night, I think I'd rather hunker down with a good hallmark mystery.

For Today

Looking out my window It's a bit cloudy, the temp is 69 degrees and a bit chilly when the wind blows.  It is fall in Florida!  

I am thinking How different  life is from a year ago.   #1 Son moved out back in March.  While we communicate every few days (I make him send me a proof of life selfie), I have only seen him in real life in July.  
I miss him terribly but he is happy and for that I am thankful.  Baby Girl is no longer in band or young people's theatre.  Instead she is doing Main Stage theatre.  Rehearsals are much more demanding and later at night.  However she is having a ton of fun and for that I am thankful as well.
I am thankful That my kids are healthy and happy. They are growing up which I am not necessarily ready for, but time waits for no one so I keep up with the flow that is life.  
I am creating I started a bolero type sweater/jacket a year ago.  I finished side one 2 weeks ago.  However I am determined to finish it before the end of the year.  I figu…

Saturday Sky

It's a rare treat to have a full Saturday at home.  While today was not quite that day, I got to experience something new today. 

I went to IKEA for the first time!

I've never been.  And the store is amazing.  What started out as "killing time" ended up really fun!  I signed up for Family store benefits which qualified me for a set of silverware.

After a $2 breakfast, we walked the store.  I didnt buy much, but i got a ton of ideas!!!!  I will be back.

After dropping Baby Girl off at a friend's house, I had the rest of the day to myself.  What do I do??  Cook of course.  I dont do that much these days so it was a lot of fun to do.

We eat out way too much so I wanted to take the opportunity to make some things while I could.  Tomorrow is another day free so there will be more cooking.  I'm hoping to fill the freezer.  Because once Monday starts, it will be nuts.  Baby Girl is in a local production of My Fair Lady and opening night is Friday.  Which means this …

So Let's Try This Again, Shall We??

Well hello there!! So glad you could stop by!  Life has been an adventure, and will continue to be so, but I'm trying to get back to the things that make me happy.  I considered starting a new blog because I wasn't sure if this one still fit, but life is a work in progress and just because things have changed, you don't throw out the baby with the bath water. I have changed the background but I apparently lost some things along the way.  I really have no idea how to make it look pretty, add links, followers etc, but I will go with it. 

It's been over a year since I've posted last and i'm hoping to change that.  At the beginning of November I thought of joining NABLOPOMO (insert hysterical laughter here) but then I decided that I didnt' want that kind of pressure on me.  I'm going to shoot for 3x a week, Tues/Fri/Sat since I have themes already in place for those days, but I am reading more and I am working on a knitting project that I have set goals for…
