Did any of you watch the original Mickey Mouse Club as kids? On Tuesdays, they would sing:
Today is Tuesday,
You know that that means?
We're gonna have a special guest!
[and then I forget most of the rest until the end]
Well, because I can remember that, instead of current things that I actually need to remember, I sing that to myself every Tuesday as I'm walking to work.
Which - other than it being Tuesday today, has nothing to do with this post.
I have two "Finallys" for you.
Finally #1 - Packages for the winners during Christmas in July. They were packaged and ready to send out, and The Tim offered to take them to the post office, since he passes one every day on his way to and from work. So, I assumed they were on their way. Then one day last week, he brought them inside, with the packaging kind of mangled. He had put them in the back seat and forgotten all about them. In the meantime, various things had happened which had really messed up the packaging.
So I re-packaged everything, and FINALLY got them in the mail to the winners last Friday. Hopefully some/all of you will receive them soon, but at least now you can be on the lookout. Of course, once they were all sent, I realized that I had re-packaged them, but had failed to include the notes I'd written and put in the packages. Sigh. Oh well, they are in the mail, that's what is important, right???
Moving on to ...
Finally #2 - Guess what? It's Tiny Needle Tuesday, and my honeybee cross-stitch has been completed!
Next up will be the item for my niece Amanda, which I *think* I can finish before Halloween and send to her. It's pretty small, and not dense at all. If it's not finished in time - well, Halloween comes every year, right? I want to pull out the cross-stitch supplies I inherited from my mother to see if I already have the colors of floss I need before I purchase any, but either way I should be able to start in the next week or so.
I am particularly pleased that my laptop cooperated to I could upload the photo - maybe things are beginning to improve, technology-wise. I'm keeping my fingers crossed ... :-)
