Oh, bad word. Spilled half a bag of dog food on the floor of the laundry room. Thankfully, I had a dustpan and a yardstick to dig it out from under the washer/dryer. Beagle will have more roughage in her diet thanks to the dust bunnies.

We're opening up our little pond/fountain and pulling weeds.

Eeeeewww, count room duty. Not quite as bad as rolling coin but still yuck. Hmmm, I wonder if there are still even any casinos that have to roll coins/tokens.

okay, pag, i'm onto you. your'e avoidance-posting. i know because it's what i do too sometimes. if you ever see a stream of vit posts, or 15 in a day, it's a sure sign i'm putting off/avoiding doing something important but unpleasant or worrisome.... :)

I am driving myself crazy. That used to be the kids job. But I seem to do it so much better.

I have a stash of embroidery threads. Most of them are DMC. But a few years back DMC changed their numbers on their skeins. I need three shades of medium green. And I can't find anything on the DMC site to correspond the old numbers to the new. Of course none of the threads I have correspond to the numbers on the instruction sheet. So I am trying to figure out three shades of medium green and making sure I have enough of each color. I really don't want to have to make a trip to AC Moore just to get 8 skeins of thread. If you don't hear from me, this is why!
