“A Weather Report from Windy Meadow & Everything’s Okay!” -- February 16, 2009

I’ve received several comments and emails asking where I’ve been and if everything was okay. Thanks for your concern! It’s a nice feeling to know that if I don’t comment for a while that you all are thinking of me! :-)

Everything is fine here in Windy Meadow except for Dear Daughter’s severe cold. She’s in day 5 and still pretty miserable. :-(

I spent last weekend with Dear Daughter (before she came down sick) visiting one of her college choices. This is her number 1 choice and since she’s already been accepted, we went for another visit to see if it was still number 1 on her list. We stayed down for the weekend to visit the college and to explore the local area.

The family is always laughing that wherever I go I collect people. In other words, I enjoy talking to people and hearing their stories so of course I hear lot’s of stories. For those of you who met me at the 2007 ANG Seminar, I was not at my best that week due to illness! :-(

The family also jokes that if you put Mom on a park bench, within 1 hour someone will be telling her their life story and that Mom will enjoy hearing the story! LOL!

Well, on Sunday before returning home we stopped in at the local visitor center and there we met two very lovely ladies, Maryanne and Melba. By the time we were done, we knew all about the local area and my daughter has two leads for fun jobs if she decides to attend this university and a possible date candidate! We had a great time and then we were off to visit more of the area before driving home.

Why is it as stitchers, before we go on a trip, we pack our stitching supplies and projects first??? Before heading out for our trip, I packed several projects as I thought I would have time to stitch during the two nights that we spent in the hotel. Well, actually I didn’t have time so I didn’t make any progress on my projects, but we still had lots of fun. :-)

I’ve been mainly working on stitching basketweave around several projects when I have had time to stitch, so I haven’t had too much to show in the past several weeks. Hopefully, I will have something to share soon. In the meanwhile, I think we’ll stroll down memory lane again with some of my completed projects.

I took a moment to update my blog header with a recent winter picture of Windy Meadow. This is how it usually looks during the winter. Many and varied shades of brown with a blue or gray sky! On several of the discussion lists in recent months, there have been discussions as to what colors do you think of when you think of winter. Ummm, for me it’s brown with some blue! LOL!

Yes, I do think of whites, clear blues, silvers, and other “normal” winter colors but at Windy Meadow this is what I usually see when I look out the window. :-)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you and your loved ones are warm and healthy!

That is something that I do not do when I go on trips, that is packing stitching stuff, as experience has thought me that I never ever have time to stitch and if I do then I am way too tired to want to stitch :-)

Yes, packing the stitching always comes first. If my dh is driving into town, I try to pack something to stitch, "just in case."

So glad to see that it was mostly "Fun stuff" that kept you away from us! Glad you're back

Glad to know that you are okay. I've missed your postings and comments. Sorry DD is not feeling well. Hope she feels better soon.
