Election Night!

I voted!  I was so lucky -- walked right into the polling place, voted, and walked out.  Less than 10 minutes from start to finish!

Tonight, I'll be watching the returns and stitching.

May be a long night... but it's sure to hold a few surprises.

Happy Stitching, Ya'll!

ALL SOULS DAY and a bittersweet farewell

I lit a candle and prayed my Rosary for you today.

Melba and me on my Wedding Day in 1990.
She always made me laugh -- often at the most inappropriate time.

We gently and lovingly lay her ashes beside those of her parents today.

When my mom was pregnant with me, Melba was just 2 1/2.  She patted mama's tummy and asked if she would take the baby out so could play with me.
We were playmates for 57 years.

Bittersweet... tears of sadness, joy, remembrance...

It hurts to say goodbye, so... fare thee well, Melba.  I'll see you again.

Just for you:

Woke up with a miserable stuffed sinus ans sore throat.  

I like to think I "partied" too much on my birthday weekend, but truthfully, I slept under the fan.

It was a great birthday!  My Dawgs won, Ga Southern won, Notre Dame won on Saturday.  As did the Boston Red Sox (WORLD SERIES CHAMPS!).

Sunday, Happy Husband took us all to lunch, then my youngest took us to LuLu's chocolate bar for dessert.  I had a chocolate martini.


Hope everyone has a wonderfully blessed week and happy stitching!
