We have been enjoying some warmer temperatures here...not unbearably hot like in some places...and since we don't have much humidity, it's been really nice...and the evenings are wonderful. I'm so glad the weekend is upon us, so we can really relax and enjoy.

I managed to get some stitching done this week. I stitched up the last two blocks for our Stitchers' Timeout block exchange. The themes were Halloween and Snowmen, and here are scans of my efforts.
This is Scaredy Cats from Val's Stuff

  
and this is Snowmen also from Val's Stuff



There has been some family stress happening...my oldest daughter has applied for a new position and is waiting to hear about that., and my youngest has not been feeling well and is starting to imagine all sorts of things are wrong with her. She is trying to get new insurance so that she can get to a doctor and find out what is really happening. So any good thoughts or prayers you can spare would be much appreciated. I (of course) tend to worry myself sick over this kind of thing...but I guess that's just what moms do!

Work moves along. We had some people in to do some  geo-testing to see what is really under all that grass behind our building and how costly it may be to dig into whatever it is. They weren't here as long as planned though, so maybe that's good news! Also, we have had a horrible odor off and on in this building for the past two and a half years. It comes and goes, but we haven't been able to figure out the cause. We have had all sorts of tests done, but no answers. This week we had another person come in and take samples and stuff. I'm calling her the "smell whisperer"...I only hope they are able to find out what it is. Our patrons come in from the fresh air outside and gasp. Everyone has heir own ideas of what it could be...you don't even want to hear the suggestions! Anyway, I hope something positive comes from all this testing.

Before I go, I wanted to share a photo of these beautiful flowers that my dear hubby sent to me at work the other day...just because he knew I have been trying to deal with a lot of stuff lately. He's a sweetie for sure!


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned. I am hoping to kick back and do some stitching.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit, and for your comments. I really do appreciate you all.

He is so cute and happy looking :) I will definitely send my prayers and positive thoughts...for your daughter as well as finding a cure for the smell. Reading your post...you definitely deserve those beautiful flowers. What a caring & loving husband you have!

  8. Pretty pieces, and LOVELY flowers. Isn't it so nice to get something "just because" that's so pretty to look at?

    Hope they find out what's wrong with your daughter soon. So frustrating to not know what's wrong with your child.
