I don't think I can call this a weekly stitching week. It was pathetic stitching-wise. I should be posting this over at a New Stitchy Start Blog, but frankly I'm too ashamed. I left off on Happy Haunts at the end of April here:
And I literally got this much done this week (five minutes work one night and maybe an hour another):
Slackaroony Cheese! I say I'm going to work on it this week, but I still have no desire to stitch right now. If it wasn't for being the Blogger of the Week last week, I don't think I could have made it though and I can't thank you guys enough for all your kind comments, seriously!
I have spent most of the week watching Miranda over and over and over again (and I'm watching it as we speak). There is nothing to get one out of a "what I call" funk than Miranda. It's helping, but I'm not quite there so, yet again, I ended up back in Mississippi on Saturday:
Rather stupid going to the beach on a holiday weekend, but surprisingly enough, everyone was at the malls instead of the beach, so I had free reign for quite a while. I decided, for a change of pace I would go down to Dauphin Island (because I'd never been there), but I wasn't impressed. I much prefer Gulf Breeze in Florida (there just wasn't time to go that far and back again). I am sure there are wonderful areas of Alabama, but I have yet to find them and their backwoods roads are quite frightening...which is saying something from someone from Arkansas.
I think I should probably wait a few weeks before going again (although I'd love to hop in the car and go again right now). Two 1000 mile trips in a week's time is pushing it, even for me. Besides, lots to do this week. We don't get Monday off, so I have to buy the stuff to fix my screens on Monday so I can do that on the 4th. The 4th was also my Grandmother's B-day, but at least all this tree mess has gotten me out of any family obligations. I will spend the day fixing screens with my pups and Miranda!
Apparently, my parents bought me lilac trees to replace my poor wisteria (like they could) and tried to get my Aunt to lie and say she bought them. It didn't take long to break her down though. She's been bugging me all week to schedule a time to come over and plant them with me, but I refused. My parents made the mess, they should be the ones to fix it. Even my therapist agreed with that (and she rarely agrees with my pig-headedness).
Maybe I need a Miranda-themed cross stitch project! I've been looking, but I haven't found one. Do I do a cast photo one, or do I do a quote one? Hmmmm...now there is something to be thinking about. Maybe I could make my own Gary Preston pillow to snuggle with! They really should have sold those, they would have made a fortune! Shame there is no such think as a real Gary Preston in my life...I could really use one of those right about now.
My Sister loves fan fiction...I love fan videos, so I guess that means it's time for one! I did find a new fan video that is a bit apropos, especially with the cut-in Miranda telling Penny to get out of her life bit, especially since I just did that to my mother (although a lot less tactile):
Although this one will always be my favorite:
Oh well, must dash back to my favorite TV couple and hope they bring my stitchy bug back.
