I am so happy

I had a date on Wednesday the 25th and it turned out great.  We met at 10:40 AM and didn't get home until around 3:00 PM.  We went to Ryan's for lunch and stayed there for an hour and a half.  Then we went to the walking park that we have here in town.  After walking around the walking lane, we came back to my apartment complex and sat in the swing that is in the butterfly garden.  We sat there so long, that we each got a small sunburn.  Neither one of us wanted the date to end.  We've been chatting on Yahoo Messenger the last week or so, so it was like we had known each other for months. 
We have another date set for Saturday the 28th.  He is from Ft. Walton Beach and will come up to Crestview to pick me up and take me back to FWB.  We are going to spend the whole day together.  There's whole lot of things to do down there than there is up here.  I will let you know how that date goes.  Oh, we met on if you were wondering how we got together.

Other things in my life, I have received Kiddo's ashes back and have them sitting with my Angel collection since she was my angel.  I really miss her and have such a void in my life without her.  I am going to get another pup as soon as I fog the house for any possible fleas.  The vet thinks that was what killed her as she couldn't find anything wrong when she did the autopsy(or whatever they call it for animals).  So I feel a bit guilty that I hadn't some something about the fleas.  What fleas there are don't seem to bother the cats. 

On the reading front, I have finished reading The Unseen by Heather Graham and now reading Catch Me by Lisa Gardner.  I gave The Unseen 4 stars.  And it looks like I will be giving Catch Me 4 stars also.  The book I was reading the last time I talked to you all, I quit reading because it was boring.  If I had finished it, I would have given it 2 stars.  It was The Cypress House but I forget who the author is.

On the stitching front,  I will be starting a project called Bluebird's Nest.  I have been working on one project that is called Conserve Energy  Share a Bath  as well as working on Summer Splendor.  I put Hummingbird and Hibiscus for a little bit.  The black fabric was driving me mad.  Sometime this week I will work on Northern Lights which is also done on black fabric.  It is a picture of wolves on a cliff and wolves in the sky.  It's very pretty.

Well, I can't think of anything else to write about.  So I will say see you later and God bless until the next time.

I know it's been a while

Looking at my last post, I see it was February since I last posted.  So I thought it was time to post again.  Sorry for being so long in between posts.

A couple of things have happened since I last posted.  First, I was in a relationship with a guy that is an American but lives and works in France.  He was coming to visit me at the end of March.  I was going to tell all of you about him coming, but I wanted to wait until the visit was over and tell you of the visit.  Well, the Wednesday before he was to arrive, he and I broke up.  He had only bought a one way ticket to here without a return ticket.  I think he wanted me to pay for his return back but I didn't wait to find out....I broke up with him because I figured he was asking for money and I didn't want to go down that road.
Since then I have joined and have been looking at men in my local area.  We'll see what happens concerning  that.

On April 9th, I lost my best chihuahua Kiddo.  She died in my arms while I was holding her.  I was going to take her to the vet on the 10th because she had stopped eating and drinking the last couple of days. But instead, I took her to the vet for an autopsy and cremation.  While there a lady with a chi weenie dog was there.  She said that the puppy was up for adoption and didn't want anything for her.  I got her name and phone number to contact her concerning the pup.  Not that I will be replacing Kiddo but I need a dog for my mental health which has taken a dive with Kiddo's passing.  I still have my 2 cats but you know how cats are.
Of course, Midnight my oldest cat has been sitting on my lap every chance he gets.  He knows when I am depressed and need comforting.  And I definitely need it right now.

Enough of the sad stuff.  On the stitching front, I am working on a kit that is called Hummingbird & Hibiscus.  It is done on black Aida cloth.  I would post a picture but I haven't found the cord that connects from the camera to the computer yet.  I know, I  know, I have had plenty of time to find it but I haven't unpacked all of my boxes yet....I'm taking my time.

On the reading front, I just finished reading Left for Dead by J. A. Jance.  I give it a 4* rating.  I always enjoy reading her books but not all of them are 5*.  I am currently reading The Cypress House by Michael Koryta.  It's not too bad but it's not going to be a 5* book, maybe a 3* - 4*,  The next one I hope to read is The Unseen by Heather Graham.  She is another author that I enjoy reading.  I'll let you know how it is if I read it next.

Well, I am going to close now.  I will let you know what they find out about what Kiddo died of and if I get that chi weenie from that lady.  In the meantime, God Bless You until next time.
