~*MIA For Too Long*~

Good morning my blogging buddies!! Betcha thought I fell off the face of the earth huh?? huge exciting news over where I've been either. No trips to the Bahamas or anything...just Walmart and Target :o)
I've been busy with so many this and that things....or as Mary from Gettysburg Homestead calls them UFO's.

School has started and football season is underway. My youngest son is the JV quarterback and got to dress for Varsity last Friday night. They got pounded but he was the QB in for there only score for the night...brag, brag!! I missed it as I went to camp at the last minute with a friend to spend the night. Felt like a bad mom for missing the game but he wanted me to go and have fun and I knew I really needed a night away. We got there late Friday night and had to leave Saturday morning but it was worth the 1 1/12 hour drive to escape for the few hours we were there!! I LOVE going to camp, love nature and the solitude and absolute quietness of the woods. My first cup of coffee was sipped outside enjoying the mist that surrounded the woods and watching a squirrel doing some kind of busy work. Each day should start that way...

Have lots to do today, I'm trying to get an order ready for the store that I sell too with some Halloween goodes, Finish up some dolls for a swap that I'm doing,  go to the library and research some angel tombstones for a design idea I have for a Halloween sampler, stop and get something to make for dinner and all the other domestic bliss like laundry & cleaning. I am SO READY for a day of just watching some scary movies in anticipation of Halloween and stitching my heart out. Darn maid keeps not showing up so I end up doing the cooking & cleaning's so hard to get good help these days....wait a minute, that's my FANTASY life!!  Oops...

Well, hope you are all well and enjoying the beginning taste of fall weather. It's been cool here and the sky has been filled with  puffy dark rimmed fall clouds. It's time for me to replace all my candles with the spicy scented ones. All my fall decorations are coming out this weekend too, yippee!!!

Keep warm, creative & love your families


  1. Wow, you are one busy gal! Looking forward to see what you come up with for a tombstone angel. They fascinate me, would love to figure out how to make a doll as a tombstone angel. My darn maid has been slacking too, I end up doing the chores myself, lol.

  2. I think it's been busy for everyone!
    Sounds like you have been a very busy gal ~ can't wait to see what you come up with your tombstone angel sampler. I love old graveyards!
    Stay in touch!
    Prim Blessings

  3. When that maid of yours shows up, tell her she's slacking over here too! Ahhh...the season has begun - just finished watching a scarey movie....LOVE them!! Nothing better to stitch and hook by if you ask me....Can't wait to see what you come up with for your tombstone design...I LOVE old graves and cemeteries....(Yup - not to confuse you or anything, but me and that "other Robin" are a lot alike...) Wishing you a wonderful today! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
