No snow north of Boston today, and even after hearing the change in the forecast I just knew that today was going to be a day to have a "mental health day." I have been hearing way too much trauma from my clients lately - I stayed home and didn't deal with any trauma at all :-)
First my stitching for the day.... you would think that with a day off I would have been able to stitch my heart out... well, no. It took me forever to get into the groove and actually pick up a needle and stitch. I kept finding reasons not to, but I don't know why. But around 7:30 or so, I did get going... here is what I did...
I just got a new truck today - I got a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, and it is a very bright silver color. We traded in my 2004 Grand Cherokee (which was dark blue) - I loved my old truck, but it had almost 48,000 miles on it already! The new one is really quite nice! This picture is from Jeep's website... getting too dark here right now to take a photo of my own Jeep. Ohhh, and "it's a hemi" - I can just hear that commercial in my head now! LOL
And... for those who had asked what Mike traded his pretty Corvette for... here it is... he got the Chrysler 300c SRT8... (that's not my yard - LOL! This pic is from Chrysler's website... I think that's his color... dark pearl gray)
Welcome back Manny!! Manny Ramirez arrived at Spring Training in Florida yesterday and will play in the first spring training game tonight - looking a bit wild with the hair and goatee... but that's "Manny, being Manny" - just can't be Manny without any drama - LOL! Seriously, welcome back!
I fear that Karen isn't going to be too thrilled with this photo! She made this quilt for me for my birthday last year. She is more of a dog lover than a cat lover.... I just found my Lily sound asleep on the quilt. Sorry Karen! Lily has good taste!! So cute, though, that I had to share :-)
And, not to leave Beau out either!! He was right next to her on the sofa... but had to settle for the snowman throw and the newspaper - Lily was not in the mood to share!!
