An Update

Hi friends!  I haven't felt much like blogging the past couple of weeks but I did want to pop on and give you an update. 

It snowed!

 I have been wishing for a measurable snow here all winter and I finally got my wish a couple of weeks ago.  I think we ended up with around 8 inches here.  It was so pretty and work was closed for a day.  Now it is in the 70's.  North Carolina weather is so unpredictable.

I receive a couple of wonderful packages in the mail.  First, from sweet Vera came these gorgeous fingerless gloves along with the cutest spool shaped lip gloss and sewing themed nail file.  Vera was in town the week that Lola passed away and I was unable to meet with her.  Thank you so much Vera for your friendship and thoughtfulness.

 Then the next kit in the Seasons of Chessie series arrived as a gift from Chris.  I love this one!  So springy.  Chris really spoiled me with this series.  Hopefully my stitching mojo will return soon so I can get to work on this.

I continue to make my salads in a jar.  This was last weeks salad.

 It is the apple a day salad with pumpkin vinaigrette dressing from Produce with Amy.  I wasn't sure about the dressing but decided to make it and give it a try.  I am really glad that I did because it was delicious and was perfect for this salad.

And this is one of the salads I swapped with my co-worker.  Doesn't it look delicious?  It was.  :o)

That's it for now my friends.  Thank you for sticking with me.  I hope I can get out of this funk I am in  and get back to normal soon.  I plan to be back tomorrow with some pictures of a bit of sewing I have completed.

The salads do look good!

I could send you all the snow you want! Illinois weather is really unpredictable too. On Monday we started out with freezing rain that changed to snow and by Monday night it was a blizzard. Tuesday and Wednesday it was SPRING with temps in the mid 50's. Thursday was heavy rain and thunderstorms and widespread flooding. Now we're headed back in the deep freeze.

The gifts you received are great!

I can understand wanting it to snow! I think you and I are probably in the minority from that regard Myra.

Looking forward to seeing your sewing!

Barb said...

I know you will do better in time. Lots of nice gifts. You had more snow than we have had this winter, but no 70's probably not till May or June! My thoughts are still with you!

Robin said...

Lovely gifts you received! Who makes the lip gloss in the 'spool'? Very clever! Both the salads look very tasty. Thanks for sharing the link to yours.

Love that Chessie piece -- very cute! And your salads make my mouth water. I need to try this for myself so maybe I'll eat more veggies. Take care - hugs!

Look at all that snow! Your mail goodies look great, especially that Chessie kit. And those salads look delicious! :D

Brigitte said...

You've received some lovely gifts from your friends. And you received some snow just as you wanted it, lol. And as Jackie said, you are certainly a minority when it comes to snow, lol.

This Winter has thrown us a few curve balls, hasn't it?
Love your salad in a jar idea!

Some sweet gifts Myra. The salads look yummy. I am hoping spring will be here soon.

Hello Myra~Spring is right around the corner, and is a nice "pick me up" for so many people. I'm in NC also and understand about the weather. It has been so nice the last few days, but threatens to drop down to the low 30's in the early mornings coming up.
Your salads in a jar always look so amazing. With warmer weather coming, I want to do the same. They're always so good for lunches.
You have a fantastic week ahead Myra.

I've been thinking about you, my sweet friend... I know that hole in your heart left by Lola's death is still very large. I know it will take time to heal and even then there will be a large scar. I hope everyone's caring thoughts will offer a bit of comfort. And I'm sure the gifts from Vera and Chris brought a smile to your day :)

Love that apple salad idea--glad to know you enjoyed the odd sounding dressing, too!

Hang in there--and give the kitties some extra cuddles. I know it's not the same as your constant companion, but I'm sure they even sense your sadness... Sending a big hug down to you :)

Chris said...

Hey Myra!
I have been thinking of you. The salads look amazing.
I hope that you have had a good weekend. I am looking forward to seeing you next week :)

Catching up on blog reading. I'm so sorry to read about your loss. So sad. I enjoyed seeing your Santas, all of them so nicely stitched. I'll be looking up those salads too. Maybe having something to grab in the fridge will stop me from grabbing everthing else in there.

I was excited by the snow and days off, too. But now that we've had the big one, I'm ready for spring! Have a great week!
