Adam and Eve have finally made an appearance on Paradise Lost.
I am getting ready to move to another page and move the q-snaps which I find exciting. I usually like to stitch in hand, but I find that with the smaller count fabrics, my stitches are more even using q-snaps. The progress is slower though. (I just took a closer look at this picture and then my actual stitching and realized I didn't finish the 'n' on 'than'... I guess I know what I will be doing as soon as this is posted!).
What an end to a week...
We finally got snow (yeah!!). But it was not near what the meteorologists had predicted. We went from a prediction of 4+" to a mere 1". However, that 1" provided two snow days which I always enjoy. I don't like to have too many snow days because I still like for school to be out before the end of May, but it is fun to have a few.
I am really thankful for the snow days this past week though because Jake and I both were sick, so that meant that we did not have to miss school and work, but were still able to be home. I worked a half day Wednesday, feeling miserable, and then visited the acute care center. I was diagnosed with bronchitis, had chest x-rays to rule out pneumonia, and given a strong round of antibiotics. I feel better, but not great. On Thursday morning, Jake complained with his stomach hurting. By 10:30 a.m. it was clear that he had a virus. He was sick twice an hour all day long. I felt so sorry for him. It was exhausting for all of us. He is much better today, but still a little weak from it all. Until this morning, we had not been out of the house since Wednesday afternoon. Considering it is frigid cold and we were sick... not a bad thing.
I am at the end of a good book for all my reading friends. It is called "Speak Softly, She Can Hear" by Pam Lewis. I read it on a recommendation of one of my best friends. I have enjoyed it. I am anxious to see how it ends. It is a suspense/thriller set in the 70s, flashing back into the 60s. It involves friendships, relationships, secrets, and murder.
I am also listening to a book called "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins upon recommendation of Laura. Oh my.... I haven't made it far into the book yet, but I can see why people can't put this down. It is really good. I am looking forward to getting the second book in the series as soon as I finish this one. It is called "Catching Fire", I think.
Not much else going on in my little corner of the world right now.
Hope you are having a good weekend, where ever you may be. :)
