A Finish and a Beginning

My goodness! I never did get any of that extra "free time" that I was SO looking forward to. :( We had some un-expected company and other time commitments and this past month has just been "go, go, go"!!!!

This past week, Ian has had a horrible bout with his asthma - poor fellow, he's been on lots of meds and round the clock nebulizer treatments. Looking on the bright side - his illness has given us a good excuse to just slow down and stay home...
This extra time has been such a blessing! I was able to finish my "It's 5:00 Somewhere" design (gotta luv that sentiment!!) and I started on one of my Chirstmas "gifties" - "All Hearts Warm at Christmas" by Lizzie Kate.

One of my favorite on-line XS shops is having a 20% off sale this week - so I am looking forward to spending quite a bit of time (and money) taking advantage of said sale!! I have been "stash-deprived" for quite a while now - so I figure I'm over-due for a bit of a spending spree!!! Yippee!!!!

Homeschool is "supposed" to start again in ernest tomorrow - it will still be a bit of "homeschool lite" for us as poor Ian is still weak, tired and under-the-weather. He was really looking forward to participating in a local tennis tourney this week-end, but it just wasn't meant to be. The way his cough sounds, he'd scare his opponents off the court w/ his cough, not his ability!!! :(

Hopefully, now that "tourist" season is over for the summer (is tourist season ever over in Florida???) we should have much less company, so again, I'm hoping for more free time.............................

Have a happy August wind-down,
