Blogging from the bathroom

Thanks! for the suggestion for the title, Carol :)

Just a quick note to tell ya all what's going on with me. Thanks for the e-mails wondering what I am doing and how the BBD is coming along.

We are in Hot Springs, Arkansas as of Tuesday for the FLW fishing tournament that I spoke about last Thanksgiving when we were here pre-fishing. Dan came in 26th place today with 3 fish weighing in at 6 lbs. 5 oz.
Friday is the second day to get in a top ten postition for the big day Saturday. If you are interested in watching the weigh-in, it will be live May 28th, Friday @4pm central time on http://www.flwoutdoors.com/ look for the All-American at Lake Degray. It will be broadcasted on TV on November 28th.

I continued to stitch on "Their Song" I will finish it and then try to make it look primitive to hide the bleeding. Thanks for all the comments and e-mails concerning it.

I did start on "Midnight Watch" by BBD and even started one of the stocking's, while here.

WE are going to Little Rock and then maybe Conway to the needle shops. You ask We???
Yes! I met someone here that stitches and she (Anna) stitches too. So tomorrow we are making the trek there, while the guys are fishing. She lives fairly close to me too, in Madison, Wisconsin

Now to explain the title. The other day I had to email Carol for the bathroom here at The Austin Hotel, 11th floor. Because that was the only place I could get a good free WiFi signal. I forgot I had the 3G with me. Now I am just sitting close to the bathroom and it seems to work on and off.
Sorry no pic's of anything. I forgot my connection cord for the camera that fits this computer. At least I have my camera, so I will have pics next week.

Kellie had 8th graduation too on Monday and we left right after that was done. Busy! Busy! Busy!

Write later...

Wow! Sounds like you have been busy busy busy......like stitching, I guess we blog from where we can....lol about the WIFI from the bathroom. Nice to have found a stitching friend. And last, been to Madison WI once and I believe it has to be the nicest town in America. I was there for Drum Corp finals at the University of Wisconsin.

Kajsa said...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your DH. How great that you met a stitching buddy!

I primed one of my Loose Feathers that I spilled water on and the thread blead. I think I dabbed some lemon juice on the really bad parts and then I soaked the whole thing in ice water for 3-4 days. I changed the water 4 times per day at least.
