Love My Mug

Good morning everyone,

Did you ever have something small but gave you big amusement?  I bought this mug last year at Pier One and every time I use it I just have to chuckle, it really tickles my fancy.  There is a small chill in the house so I decided to have a cup of hot chocolate.  Does it help that it's fat free whip cream?  lol

On the stitching front, I have no progress to show as I am trying to finish up on a spring exchange.  My hand will be out of commission for 2 weeks and I need to get this finished so I can have it in the mail on time.  I am scheduled to have a carpel tunnel release done  on my left hand on the 26th.  If any of you have gone through this then you know it is a piece of cake and best thing you ever did, however, your hand is a half cast for 2 weeks-ish.  So it won't lend itself useful to hold onto a q-snap.  I do have plans however to play play play on the sewing machine!  I am so tempted to sign up for one more exchange but I do want to be realistic....sigh. I'm so far behind on the Christmas ornie SAL already and it's only month 2!  grrr.

All is well here, sun is shining, dogs are snoring, house is quiet, DH is sick in bed so it's really quiet, ohh, but I do hear birds chirping!  Love how happy they are,(when they don't have a Chloe chasing them away)

We went to Jungle Jims the other night to kill some time, it's a huge international market place, we were goofing off,  tried some Buffalo jerky, tasted like beef but the texture was smoother, they had alligator jerky but we passed.  Other assortment of meats, kangaroo, ostrich, venison, buffalo, any part of a pig you can think of, like the pig head looking up at you?  Reminds me of the butcher shops when I lived in Italy!  They offer so many food items from around the world, it's ridiculous, however, all the things that I loved to buy in Italy- sigh, they don't have any of them, lol.
I told my husband to buy some alligator jerky and if he encounters the same gators on the golf course in South Carolina this year as he did last year, hold out the jerky and show them what happened to their aunty, lol.
Ashley ready for spanish class

Yep, that's a pig head staring up at me, the tongues were right next to it, ummm, I'll pass

Alligator Jerkey- again, no thanks, lol.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week and hopefully I'll have progress on something to show you soon.
Hugs and Blessings to everyone!

  2. Hot chocolate sounds wonderful. Love that mug! Your daughter is a beautiful girl. DH is sick in bed and it's peaceful?! How's that work? If mine is sick the whole world must stop and comfort him.

  3. I agree with Denise ~ how is it peaceful if your hubby is sick? I hope he is feeling better. Good luck with your hand as well ~ sounds like a pain that will be worth it in the end.
    Your daughter is so pretty!
    The market sounds like a great place to have some giggles ~
