I'm So Happy About My New Friends!

How Are You Spending Your Monday?

Good Morning, Everybody!
     How are you spending your day today?  The Mister is doing some custom work on location today for a customer and I'm doing
laundry : ) Yay... it's going to be hot today so I don't mind being in the cool of the basement. My sweetheart had the air conditioners installed in May for me and I'm still having the hot flashes from jolly Ms. Menopause.  I'm hoping they stop in the next year or two. My sister went through the same thing and hers lasted for quite a few years so I figure it's genetic. Another un-enthusiastic 'Yay'....
    I want to say a huge "Thank You" to all of the new followers that have joined the blog in the past few weeks, and to my long-time buddies that have stuck with me during my absence.
I'm really happy that you're following along and I hope that you enjoy reading along with me.
    I picked up the Polly Daggett sampler and did some work this morning because I couldn't sleep. I also started playing with my rug hook and the box of woolie worms I won from Lauren of Rugs and Pugs. I really like hooking! When I get the hang of it I'll work a real pattern for a ruglet. But, that's after the sampler is finished.
    I got my new copy of Create and Decorate and there's another great prim rag doll; the last issue had one, too.  It's the same artist that designed the prim Rabbit that I made for my Giveaway that Sheila of Seasons of Thy Heart won.  Her dolls are really large and easy to make and very primitive.
    I received my order from Brenda of With Thy Needle and Thread. Oooh, the fabrics are gorgeous. And, they are tiny prints just perfect for some lucky doll's dresses and to back a pin keep, pillow tucks and huswif needlebooks.
And, I have some vintage seam tape in a beautiful oyster shade, and the teeniest rusty jingle bells, smaller than a pea! They'll make a cute necklace or teeny eyes or buttons for snow people.
    I never seem to start early enough for the coming seasons. I know that most crafters have already started making Fall and Christmas goodies. I told myself last year that I would get started in the summer for Christmas items and so far I'm still on Spring!
Oh, well. I move at a snail's pace and I'm okay with that. No choice, really!
    I've got lots of birds visiting the water fountain for their daily drinks. I love looking out of the kitchen windows when I'm at the sink and watching them all flutter in and out of the trees and land at the water and peek in the windows at me. They are very curious to see what I'm doing, too.
The kitties love it, especially when the squirrels drop by. They have a never ending supply of acorns to munch from all of our oak trees and I'm glad for that.
    I'll leave you with this sweet picture of our mouser Biggie passed out after a busy night of hunting in workshop:

Ahh, geeze...turn the light out, will you?

Thanks, Brenda. I hope you had a great birthday. I think your giveaways are wonderful, I love the Peppermint Pouch!

I do hope it gets a bit cooler for you. I love putting water out for the birds as well.

Sounds as if you are busy, busy. Slowly getting into Fall crafting here...but haven't even thought about Christmas. Such a pretty kitty!
Have a great week,

Hi Susan,
I'm glad to see you're doing better and are back to working on the sampler.
As for the hot flashes they're something all of us women go through and wish we didn't but they do end at some point.
Enjoy your week and your air conditioning.

Susan At Glen Oaks Primitives said...

Thanks, Kay. Let us know when you hear from Wilbur.

Susan At Glen Oaks Primitives said...

Hi, Robyn~Yes, our Biggie is pretty.
I wish I was busy-busier!

Susan At Glen Oaks Primitives said...

Thanks, Maddy. Thank God for air conditioning. I open the refrigerator
door and just stand there!

Barb said...

Hi Susan,
Well on Monday here we are recovering from working in the heat on the siding of the house.
So that means laundry and playing catch up.
Stay cool near that AC!
Enjoy your day,

Firecracker Kid said...

Hi Susan :) you've got a lot to keep you busy in the comfort of your air conditioned home. It's so wonderful to be able to enjoy the birds and outside critters. I get a lot of it from watching them in my yard too. Good therapy for us menopausal gals :)

I am part of the laundry club today too:) I've done like 5 loads since this morning and am on the last two. Whew, having 3 girls means a lot of laundry!!! Glad you are feeling up to housework and stitching. I always find myself a season behind too. But this time, I will start fall sooner. Keep working on your rugs, pretty soon you will be a pro hooker like the rest of them. Have a great evening. -Steph-

Robin at The Primitive Hutch said...

Evening Susan ~ so nice to see you post!
I'm at a snail pace to ~ should already have fall things started and like you said I'm still on spring/summer ~ oh well!
HOpe everything is going well with you.
Sounds like you have lots of things to keep you busy!
Take Care!
Prim Blessings

That old thing called menopausal can last some of us gals for a long time.

Jennifer Gail said...

I don't know what's the change and what's the MS. I'm confused. Glad you're back:)

Danice said...

Glad you are feeling better, Susan. I cannot wait to see the Sampler when you finish it :)

Susan At Glen Oaks Primitives said...
