I just finished reading Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen. It was a pretty fast read. I enjoyed it. I have been reading a lot lately. I think it is a means of detaching from the world. Sometimes it is just nice to escape into a book. I have read 23 books so far this year. Not sure if that is a large number or normal. It amazed me.
We are getting closer to our move date. 5 more months. I have started a list of things to do and when they are due by. The feeling of having so much to not forget was getting overwhelming. We still haven't told our employers yet. I am going to break the news to my boss on Friday morning. This is the best job I have ever had but I am ready to move "back home" to Wisconsin.
I haven't been stitching very much. Here is my tribal rooster. I am farther than this picture shows but I forgot to take a new picture. This is for a friend of mine I hope she likes it.
I was watching a Minnesota Public TV show clip online about my hometown in WI. They interviewed lots of people and businesses. The woman who use to do my framing has a new shop that I didn't know about so I am excited about that. I was fretting a bit about how I would get my stuffed framed when we move. Many of the interviews were with my past co-workers and even my old boss. It made me homesick and I felt tears building a little bit.
My eating isn't out of control right now but I know I have not been making very good choices. I eat a small salad at lunch and a bag of potato chips. (not a full size bag) I have a potato chip problem. It is an addiction.
