Waving Hi ....

Happy September! The weather here sure is telling us it will soon be fall, we actually turned on the heater this morning .. there was quite a chill in the air when we got up. I'm sorry to see the summer go ... but we are heading into my favorite time of year, fall and winter .. so I can't complain too much :)

We had a great time in Bristol, TN. The weather was great, not too hot .. the race was awesome, even though my driver struggled all evening .. I met up with a few Matt Kenseth fans and enjoyed a few margaritas with everyone. If you are a race fan and have never been to the Bristol night race, you really need to add it to your to-do list. This is really an incredible track .. it's like sitting in a football stadium that holds 161,000 people and 43 very fast cars going round and round! lol Here's a couple of pictures .. this one is a few of the Matt fans hanging out at the campsite ...

and here's a picture of Terry, Robert and me ...

While I was gone I received this wonderful award from a few fellow bloggers .. Kim, Dawn, Mary Ann, and Karol ... thank you ladies for the award. I'll pick a few blogs to award later this week. I still feel very very behind since getting back from vacation.

Veronica received my fair and square squares while I was on vacation .. here's what I stitched for her. The design is 'I Love Cross Stitch' from the July 2008 issue of The Gift of Stitching magazine by Maryse Dupont of Les grilles de Maryse. I really enjoyed stitching this for Veronica. I'm glad she liked it. I think I'm going to stitch this a couple more times ... sure would make a cute pinkeep, don't ya think?!

I didn't do much today .. was nice to just be lazy .. I stitched and watched a couple of movies. The first one was with Michelle Pfeiffer called I Could Never Be Your Woman. Definately not an award winner, but a very enjoyable movie and one you can stitch and watch. The other was Diminished Capacity with Matthew Broderick and Alan Alda. I really enjoyed this one and would highly recommend it.

I've been stitching, but it's nothing I can show .. yet :) Hope everyone had a great weekend! And thanks for all the comments about my L*K double flipits .. I seriously need to stitch on it this week.

I'm grateful for vacations ...

Glad you had such a great time in my home state, even though I don't live there any longer. LOL Maybe you can make it down to Fontana sometime and we can hang out again. :-)

Welcome home. My parents have gone to the Bristol race for years. Dad doesn't go every year lately, he didn't go to this one.

Your FS piece is adorable.

I'll see you in a little over 6 weeks. WooHoo!!!!!
