Otherwise Engaged.....

I so have not been stitching. Yeah, I know, I promised. But Summer kind of got all busy on me, and I haven't made much time for it at all.

I saw Adam, again, in concert this past Friday. This one was even MORE incredible than the first one I went to back in June. My mom bought me a new camera just for the occasion! My sister and I were right up front, with only one or two people in front of us. Unbelievable. The whole night was a glorious adventure.

Adam has had my heart from day one, as anyone who has been following this blog for any amount of time knows. To see him TWICE this summer has really just been an incredible experience. My husband fully supports this obsession, which I'm very thankful for. :-p

Oh, and in between, we also saw The Black Eyed Peas! WOW, it was like a club party up in there, multiplied by 100!!! Before this summer, I had nearly forgotten how wonderful it felt to feel your heart and stomach pounding to the beat of great music, as loud as it can be, in person. It's addictive really.

I hope you guys are settling in for Fall and wrapped up Summer nicely. My boy is now in high school and it's a whole new ball game for us. Work will start for me soon, and Halloween is well on it's frightening way!

Cleaning out and cleaning up is high on my list of priorities for Fall. I just feel like I need to. For some reason, I don't get the Spring cleaning bug - it's definitely Fall for me. And I do have lots more to do before the harvest season. Do you?

Have a wonderful week, whether you stitch or not!


  1. I know exactly what you mean about cleaning up and cleaning out in the fall. I don't feel the need in the spring either. Happy fall--best time of the year!

  2. Looks like you've definitely had a great summer! Can't wait to see your new designs. What are you stitching next?

  3. I'm not a spring cleaning person either. For me it's decluttering and cleaning in the summer. But the mian reason might be that I have more time during my summer break than in any other time of the year.
    We've been having fall weather here for quite a while so I think fall will be upon us very soon.

  4. Where have I been. I so loved catching up with you. Your Ocean vaca pics are wonderful. The stash you got is great ... I haven't stitched all summer. But, I've been busy with whimsical painting. Can't wait to see your stitches again. Yeah for Fall de-cluttering. :)

  5. You know it's fall for me!! In spring, I feel like sweeping everything under the rug and forgetting about it for a while.

    So glad you enjoyed the concerts! Man, you're little boy is just about grown up! I just saw the photo of him pushing Enid in the swing the other day....

  6. Oh well, I suppose we'll forgive you. Perhaps you will feel more like stitching when the cleaning is done.
    Blessings, Star

  7. Have fun with your deep cleaning. I always get the urge in the Summer, so I can start school fresh. I love a clean house! Then we start to open the windows as Fall gets closer, and all the dust gets back in the house. LOL.
    I think I should do what you do, and wait until Fall to spring clean!
    Great to see a post from you! Hugs.

  8. I get that Autumn bug as well. It does seem to be going around. I anticipate the coming season so, and all the good things that come with it. My energy is at its best I think, in the fall of the year. Many blessings!

  9. I get the 'spring cleaning' bug in the Fall too! Just started purging yesterday, feels great!


Thank you so much! I appreciate all stitchy comments!
