Since I finished my Jeannette Douglas class piece I have done almost no stitching. But my little sorting exercise has put the reminder forefront in my mind - way to many works in progress. Some needed missing floss, some are from Christmas in July, some just need a few days or stitches or an embellishment or two.....so I have a path forward.
I seem to have gotten myself into a rut. I so wanted to get that class piece done I was doing little more than coming home from work and sitting to stitch. After a day of drama and stress at work - AKA Menopause Manor - 11 women/8 men on the Executive floor can lead to days filled with days of drama - I found myself just flopping on the sofa after dinner and just staying there the rest of the rest of the evening just stitching or roaming the internet. Brainless activity trying to recover from a stress of the day. Not a good thing for the waistline or the backside! I am trying to get better motivated. I told myself if I could come home in the summer and jump around in the pool for a at least an hour most evenings, then I can stay off the couch and get some things in and around the house done and not save them all for the weekend. I think it is time to reintroduce the treadmill into my daily routine.
He likes attention and climbs on my lap when I sit to stitch or do computer work.
A restful Buddy - trust me - he is just waiting to pounce!
Buddy helps me sort my needlework patterns.
I have never had a cat that demanded so much attention and I am loving it.
I think he has found his throne.
Life with Buddy has been interesting. He is really a people cat and wants lots of interaction. It is so wonderful to be greeted when I come in the door by his meowing and purring. We have settled into a routine of playing for a few minutes and more playing and brushing after dinner each evening. My allergies have really kicked up and I do hope it is a seasonal issue and not my new kitty. We are still settling into a sleeping routine and I am not getting much sleep. Buddy not only has his days and night mixed up as well he as wants to to be in bed with me...but not by my feet. He wants to lay on my chest, my head and just about anywhere he deems comfortable. Seems to be a theme. I am thoroughly enjoying this cat. He sure has personality.
OK, that's my little bit of catching up.....hope to have some stitching to share soon.
