We were asked to be alert to the weather yesterday due to the threat of tornados. Kendall and Landon were released from school early because of the watch. Fortunately we only had wind and rain. However I am hearing that straight line winds did do some damage at one of our Priceville mini marts. Tornados are truly a part of life here so we try to keep calm and carry on.
How many of you are Instagram users? I am on Instagram as nanaland55. Since I am technically challenged I am unsure of how to add the link to my blog so I will just share that tidbit here. I am friends with a few of my fellow bloggers and I love seeing what they are up to every day. According to Instagram etiquette, you should only post one photo per day! I am learning all sorts of things in my old age.
I finished up my Easter cross stitch and I am on to a summer piece. Thanks to all my cross stitching bloggers, I have been inspired to create more pieces. My Easter piece will be made into a bolster pillow, hopefully. My friend, Deborah, has offered me the use of her sewing machine to complete the project. First I have to go to Hobby Lobby to choose some fabric and piping. It has been a while since I have sewn a pillow so hoping it all comes back to me.
For all of you who are Downton Abbey fans, what did you think of Sunday evenings episode? I am an old nurse and it almost made me sick. I knew Robert was going to have some sort of medical episode this season but oh my goodness. While shopping in Target yesterday I saw that Season six is in the stores for purchase. I am going to wait until Downton finishes airing on PBS before I buy my dvd for my collection. I am really going to miss this series! And I just received my order of Sisters from Amazon. I got Seasons one and two. I loved this show about four sisters when it aired in the 90s. Patricia Kalember who played Georgie was my favorite sister. I am going to try to watch one episode per day to make it last. And who knows? I hope I like it as much 20 years later.
I am still at work in my closet, trying to tidy and toss. I read an article about the famous Japanese book on Tidying. ( if it is so famous why can't I remember the title?) Apparently you are to keep only things that bring you joy. And you should fold your socks so they can rest when they are not being worn! And thank the pieces for their service before you toss them or give them away.
I have a sweet friend who shared that she rotated her shirts in high school so that the shirts felt she loved them all equally!! I am not ready to start treating my clothes as though they have feelings.:)
Well I have a whole day at home to work in my house. I hope I do not give in to the call of my cross stitch and Sisters DVD. I know myself much to well...it will be a temptation! Have a great day friends.
