Picture is clickable btw, just in case you can't see it well!
We took a ride to Sumter yesterday a.m. to go to the new Michael's that just opened and it is a nice store, though it seemed a bit smaller than the one I shop in at the beach. It's okay though, it's only about 30-45 minutes away (depending on traffic), so I won't complain too much! :-) Then we stopped at the grocery store for a few things on the way home. I spent the afternoon/evening finishing my tote bag & stitching. I have LOTS of finishing to do & plan to get started on that in just a few minutes. I didn't get as much done as I'd planned on this "long weekend", just had too much else to do. Tomorrow is my sister's birthday so we took Hannah (our niece) to Wal-Mart & she picked out a giant chocolate chip cookie (instead of a cake) & we had "Happy Birthday Mama" put it on it and she also picked out a card & a couple of other little things for a gift. We took it to my parents where my bro-in-law met us & then I had my mom call my sister to come over. She was shocked to see us all there & I think it made her feel good, or at least I hope it did. I know Hannah was thrilled with the "surprise party" for her mama! ;-) My sister is having constant migraine headaches and just can't get any relief & I'm worried about her. Then she came over this afternoon & we chatted for awhile while Uncle Ray took Hannah for a ride with the top down. She enjoys it more than *I* do, that's for sure! I don't think I'd want to go back to being 10 years old, but wouldn't it be nice for the "little things" to be such "big things" again? ;-)
Okay, off to do some finishing - wish me luck. Each time I start, I have to stop for some other reason.... so crossing my fingers I have more pics to share in a few days!! Happy stitching & Happy Labor Day!
