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 Match.com and have been looking at men in my local area.  We'll see what happens concerning  that.

On April 9th, I lost my best friend....my 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.


  1. Good luck with the online dating, Connie. I tried it for many, many years and had bad luck with all the men I met on there. Good for you in not wanting to pay for your ex's return plane ticket.

    Will you be posting a pic of your current WIP? It sounds pretty.

  2. So sorry about Kiddo but I am glad you have Midnight to give you some comfort.

    You probably made a wise choice with the guy.

  3. Hey Connie, remember how I posted in SS about my doggie that died in the vet that had bit the electrical cord? He was a chi-weenie. He was my soul doggie!! I know the pup could never replace your Kiddo, but honey, if that pup turns out anything like my precious little Peanut, you have just got to get him/her!!

  4. So sorry for you puppy dog. Good thing you realized what the ole' boyfriend was up to.
    I have projects I am stitching on black. It can be a pain. But, the end result is beautiful. Hopefully things turn out better for you!

  5. Sounds like things have been difficult for you lately. Hope they pick up soon!

  6. Sorry to hear about your losses Connie. I hope things take an upturn soon, and that you start to feel better.
