I spent some time Saturday and Sunday sewing. It felt so good! Last week was extremely busy, and there wasn’t much time for relaxation. My stress levels go up when I don’t have a little time to myself to stitch, so I’m hoping this week goes more smoothly.
I had lunch with an old friend on Saturday as well. I hadn’t seen Sue in probably 30 years, and we had a lot of catching up and picture-showing to do. We’ll be getting together much more often, I’m sure! It was great to see her again!

Sean, Kim, Jacob and baby Samantha surprised us with a visit yesterday for my birthday (which is today). We had a nice, long visit, dinner, and some good relaxing time together. Sammy slept most of the time, but was never set down except for a change or two. She woke up and was very alert before they left, with big open eyes looking all around. Dean’s parents came over for a bit and got to see her for the first time. They said “She’s a keeper.” We agree. I asked Jacob if we should keep her, and he said yes. When I asked him if we should put her back in Mommy’s tummy, he looked really puzzled, then said no, she wouldn’t fit anymore.
