Thank you Meari for giving me this award. Awards like these make me feel special.

and so many more. :) I wish I could pass this on to all the blogs I enjoy reading. But then this post would go on far too long. :)

No new stitching to report. One project that I worked on Sunday and Monday is a gift. And then last night I stitched for almost two hours only to find I was off by one row and need to frog all the work I had done.

Heck, I didn't even stay up long enough to rip out all the stitches and will have to finish that tonight. Grrrrrrrrrrrr. I hate when that happens. :(

Add to the stitching frustration the fact that I am still recovering from my marathon yard cleaning this past weekend. Like many other people, I have carpel tunnel problems in both wrists. Now for the odd thing. Raking triggers the numbness and tingling. It is the weirdest thing. I can type at the computer for hours (I often do for work) and have no problem. But let me rake for longer than 30 minutes and BAM! Even stranger is that it is my left hand and wrist that is being effected at the moment. Maybe that's a bit of a blessing considering the fact that I am right handed. :) The numbness is so annoying. Especially when I want to get back outside and work some more as soon as the sun comes back out.

To all those who said such lovely things about my garden photos and hard work all I can say is: Thank You all! I know gardening is hard work but seeing the beautiful blooms and listening to the birds that some plants attract is so well worth the effort. And even spiritual.

Alice, you mentioned about a compost pile. That is something that I want to add to the back corner of my property BUT I need to make sure the area is free from the invasive plants that are currently there. No need to add more poison ivy, invasive wild rose, bind weed and invasive honeysuckle. When I get the compost going I do want it to be a "clean" as possible. I am hoping this is the year I can get it going.

Here's hoping my stitching this evening goes better than last. :)
Until next time.....................
Love and stitches
Kathy

Thank you Kathy for the award. That is so kind of you. : ) You are going to make a super compost heap and its so rewarding to make your own plant food. It can become a complete art and real addictive. All that recycling makes you feel good about what you can do for the planet and your garden. ; )

Hello

Fatalities have also been reported in patients who have overdosed with a combination of a single benzodiazepine including alprazolam and alcohol.

Like in cases of drug overdosage, respiration, pulse rate and blood pressure should be monitored.
