Daffy's Stitchy Friends

Happy 2008!

I had such an incredible surprise this evening...a phone call from my friend Joan in the UK! Oh, we had a lovely chat and spent nearly an hour talking and gabbing. I haven't heard Joan's voice in over a year so it was lovely to catch up. Snail and e-mail is great but nothing beats an actual phone call. Thank you Joan, it was wonderful!

I thought I'd better say what I had from Santa before it gets to be stale news! Here is a quick photo...PCStitch-pro, Burberry Brit Red perfume, a GPS for my Florida trip, Voyagers! on DVD...(my favorite TV show as a teen...giggle...) and Seasons 1 & 2 of Supernatural on DVD.
As you can see I had a good Christmas! I also ate too much, didn't get enough sleep, left shopping until the last minute and the wrapping even later! Seriously, it was a good holiday with family and friends; I am incredibly fortunate.

Did you stay up to usher in the New Year? Not me. I went to bed at 10:30 as I had to work this morning. It was slow at work too, every phone call was someone asking if we were open today! Jessie celebrated with girls' night out with friends...She is itchy having suffered a severe case of hives since Boxing day. The doctor gave her shots, steroids and an epi-pen in case she starts having trouble breathing! We still don't know what she got into that she was allergic to...

Happy New Year!

I've been to Stillwater a number of times. I have two girls going to school in the City. It's hard being 2,000 miles away from them.
