Finally got smart – taking a break!

Do you ever stress over what to put in your heading to make it jump out at your followers and have them want to click on your blog???
I’m having that problem…no catch words are coming to me…nothing has been happening here to call for a catchy word or phrase…just plain ole living and doing what one needs to do daily – is that boring or what?

Taking a break

So the heading here says it all for what is happening here….I put my website on HOLD FOR 2 MONTHS – I’m not getting anything made for my shows and that just won’t fly come August if there’s very little made.
I am not getting rich with my website but I do get orders in regular – to the point I can’t work on anything else.
So if anyone was wanting something quickly just e-mail me…I’m doing things like that for people but just not website orders from the shopping cart for now.
Oh and if only I was taking a break to do just what the picture shows….sun and sand – HOW FUN!

I’m sure you are all getting ready for your Easter weekend – we’re having just our youngest son and family and then our oldest grandson for Sunday dinner.
We’ll also be celebrating our granddaughters Confirmation.
Last Sunday she got confirmed and last night she took her first communion.

Our middle son is heading for Florida for a week tonight – I just realized he’s getting to do what my picture is showing !!!!
Oh well, they certainly deserve it. He works for a printing company and puts in many, many hours above and beyond and his wife works 2 jobs – think they need a vacation?  I do.

Our oldest will be at home with his in-laws – always a fun time there…lots of little ones to be happy about the Easter Bunny.

Do you ever get tired of eating ‘right’ and need something greasy and yummy…well that was me last night – I needed grease and lots of it so we had grilled pork chops and fried potatoes…YUM…yes there are 4 chops – I only at half of one but they are great cold to nibble on don’t ya think?

Have you ever tried the ‘Simply Potatoes’ ?  They are awesome and taste like fresh cut potatoes. I won’t ever cut up another whole potato to fry since we found these – they are so fresh and flavorful. We also buy the shredded ones too.
You just have to try them.

So what have I been up to besides stitching…just about nothing – so see how hard it was to come up with something to post. 
Maybe it’s time to take a break here too and then just maybe I’ll have something interesting to post about….BUT I;M NOT…YOU JUST WON’T SEE MANY CREATIVE POSTS UNTIL SOMETHING HITS ME!
Haven’t been shopping to buy any new treasures lately either.

Oh I have to say though – my husband got the 3-D Sports channel on our TV yesterday and he/(me kind of) watched the Masters in 3-D – boy it looked like you were right there on the course with them – every hill, flower, tee, greens – all so real. That was interesting huh?

All the while I was stitching yesterday my little Lola slept next to me (always – she’s my shadow!).
She has a sweet habit of covering her eyes when she sleeps.

So I’ll leave you with her picture and wish you all a very HAPPY EASTER
