Silly Thoughts

Happy Labor Day Weekend - the official end of summer. It’s time to put away those white shoes and handbags, and pull out the woolies. I do plan to weed my closet this weekend, tossin’ and donatin’ things I simply haven’t worn.

(Who am I kidding? After this bloggin’ session, I’ll probably just chill till time to go to work!)

Had lunch with Shirley at Rock Bottom this week – delicious salad I must say. She and I shared some dating disaster stories, laughed (and almost cried). It’s amazing how many of us are out there, knowing full-well that this wasn’t in the script, that we were supposed to be almost grammas by now, happy and settled in our marriages and careers, only to wake up one day and realize that we got dealt the other deck.

I’ve been digging into my family tree again. Have been working on it off and on since high school, really. During my last hiatus, the internet has really kicked in. There are some amazing genealogy blogs out there, and I feel totally inspired to start my own. Found some amazing pictures the other evening and need to get them scanned. You may get a peek here someday soon.

On the stitching front, got some more Weeks Carrot so I could finish up my silly pumpkin and, since it’s almost that season, here’s “Scared Silly” so far:

  3. Hi Pam,
    I have been a long time follower but first time commenter to your blog. I hear you on your comment about life and the cards we are dealt. I am in the same boat.

  4. Scared Silly is too cute! Makes me want to stitch something fall-ish very soon.

    I look back and wonder if I ever even had a script? Even if I did, it doesn't take much for the text to be changed :(

Your comments are important to me. I do hope you will at least indicate you stopped by. Happy Stitching!
