Due to the nature of my job, and the increase in business, I will be taking a break from blogging, mainly because I am exhausted. I don't mind the hard work and long hours, its just I am getting older and crankier! Keep checking back, I will be having a drawing in the next couple of weeks, I promise!

Well today is a great day, I am working at BP&HH today. I got there and right from the start I knew it was going to be a busy day! I love it when it is busy. I get to meet and help the nicest people, get to play with fabric, and oh yes, I get to DUST! I just need to remember to do my yoga exercises before I start to dust! Lindy got in some beautiful fall fabric, and 1 bolt of Turkey fabric. Well, Lindy, Julie and I all just had to get 2 yards of it to make napkins for Thanksgiving! It is too cute! I also bought some other Autumn fabric to make napkins out of. We are trying to be more green friendly here in the Bump Household! When I got home, hubby made Chicken Parm and pasta, garlic bread and salad. Yummy! It was good, so I did not mind to do the clean up. He didn't make a big mess so I was really thankful. Tomorrow, we go to San Francisco, to Pac Bell Park. We have a meeting with SF Giants baseball organization and them getting more involved with youth baseball, and they picked Northern California Cal Ripken, and hubby is the State Commissioner. I can't wait. We both love baseball and the we haven't attended a game there this year, so we are pretty excited. I am going to get some stitching done, so good night and have a great Sunday!

Well, today wasn't too bad. I think that the full moon is almost over. I got work taken care of, and when I got home , I had 1 hour and 15 minutes to spare before I had to pick up my BFF up for Jo's tonight at BP&HH. I told her I would bring dinner, so I fixed a Chinese Chicken Salad, and what else goes with that, but freshly made cookies, Snickerdoodles, my fav! Oh, they tasted so good. It has been awhile since I made some. I made a double batch so I could make more later when I have time. They are also my son's favorite! I surprised Kim at Jo's tonight with the cookies. She always teases me about bringing cookies to Jo's, well, Lindy also brought some Linzer cookies and Julie brought little round tubes of Mini M&M's, but they are for storing our bobbins, not just to eat!(A girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do!) That Julie is so thoughtful! One lady shared some beautiful embroidery she is doing in Gran's Tuesday morning class. It was breathtaking! I was really tired, so I dropped off my BFF and drove home, where I stitched for 30 minutes and now I am off to sweet slumber!
Yep, I think the name says it all. It is a full moon, one would have thought I would have taken the hint, but no, and today was a doosey! 12 hour, 2 Excedrin,non stop day! I finally finished at 8:44 pm, hubby asked if I was working on reports all night. I finally turned my work phone off, at 9:20 pm, thank goodness the battery was dead, because new I was! I have a feeling it is going to be like this, due to the Cash for Clunkers program. It is a good program, it is helping out the car industry, which I am involved in, and where my paycheck comes from, but I really do not think anyone was prepared for the response. I did get some stitching done, which helps me relax and unwind. Tomorrow I am heading down to Manteca, Modesto, Turlock, and Stockton. Very busy day, and I need to head home since I have Jo's tomorrow evening. I haven't even kept up with my Jo's class, but I plan to. I need to pin and quilt a couple of table runners I made at Quilt camp, one is a Christmas present and the other is for Halloween for me, so I need to get on the ball. I am falling asleep as I write this, so good night!

Saturday, my friend Colleen and I were going to get together to do some embroidery, well, that didn't work out. Instead, we went on a field trip. I had received an email from the Tin Thimble, announcing that they were having a sidewalk sale this week-end. This store is known for vintage linens, fabrics, patterns, trims and such. Well, Colleen and I both love vintage linens, so off we go, along with her daughter, Kiley, 9 yrs old. It was a very warm day in the foothills, but it was well worth the trip. I just love the smell of old lines, I can't explain it. Then we headed on up the hill, to Cabin Fever Quilt Shop. Patty Henderson, (owner) was there, helping a customer out with colors and patterns for a particular quilt. Colleen really enjoyed seeing the shop. Then across the street to Auburn Drug store we went. They have an old fashion soda fountain, so naturally we had to get an ice cream sundae, by was it good! We also found a used book store and an embroidery store, but they were closed, so we enjoyed looking in the book store. Home was on the menu after that, I was tired! But I had a wonderful day with a good friend and her daughter. Sunday, hubby and I went out to breakfast then off to the Pro Bass Shop in Manteca, for 2 hours of exploring all kinds of neat stuff. Grocery shopping rounded out the day with a full night of working on my Hocuspocusville Block. Monday, was back to the grindstone with work. I am going to try to get some stitching in tonight before I go to bed. It is a full moon here, and I am feeling the effects of it!! Sweet Dreams!
