I had to buy some floss for my Owl and I found some charms that I couldn't resist. A total spent = $6.40
I finished my Woodland Babies Fox and block 8 of Save the Stitches for a total of $8.00.
Here are my update photos
I took the fox to Michael's to get it framed. I spent way to much money but the framing really makes this fox awesome. It is a gift so at least I didn't spend the money on myself. I will post a picture when I get it back from vacation.
I have started working on an owl for another niece.
We are leaving for Wisconsin tomorrow. I will be without a computer for 8 days. I am taking a cross stitch kit with me. It is a sunflower and I haven't started it. I figure at night while in my hotel room I can get the kit opened up and get the floss organized.
I am going home to Wisconsin to see my family. My sisters and brother and me have not all been in the same room for a long time. I think the last time was when my one sister had her 10th wedding anniversary which was like 12 years ago. My husband has not even met my brother. Kind of nervous. I guess I should mention that my mother is there too. She is hard to deal with.
The other thing we will be doing in Wisconsin is looking at apartments and visiting a realtor to see about buying a small house. We want to move back in a year.
I have been listening to 3 phone OA meetings a day while working. I just put my earbuds in. This way I don't have to listen to my co-worker M, the bigot. But I have been working on my spirituality and trying to do more prayer. I have been asking God for help at combating the self-isolation that I have brought upon myself. Last night, 2 elders from my congregation stopped in unexpectedly. I think God has answered my prayers. They came to see if I was doing okay and if they could offer me any assistance. So loving and kind. I had earlier in the day set a goal to start going back to Sunday worship services when we get back from Wisconsin. I hate the East Coast so bad that I don't go outside. The air here is so heavy I feel like I can't breathe. It is so hot and humid and I am miserable.
I am really looking forward to a week with my family and old friends and to get away from this oppressive weather and my horrible co-worker.
Thanks for reading, talk to you after Labor Day.
