The last couple of days have been very busy in this household. Mio’s birthday was on Tuesday and we had a dinner party and I cooked mexican chicken lasagne that was just yummy. He got a lot of new clothes for his birthday, both from me, his mom and sister and also from my mother. Very usefull since he hardly ever buys clothes for himself.
Yesterday Me and Karitas had another yoga class and I have strings all over my body after it. But I love it! It is so refreshing and makes me feel great! I was busy for most of the day cleaning up after the birthday party the night before but managed to get a little stitching done in the evening. A little stitching again today and then I had company. I am doing well with the stocking but it is not going fast enough for me! I think I am just getting a little bored with it. I want to start working on the Mothers Day gift for my mom, but I will not start it until the stocking is done. If I get some stitching time tonight and tomorrow, I should be able to finish it.
Also, yesterday I booked my flight to Texas for my stitching retreat. I am going to meet my stitching friends in the US that I have known on-line since 1999/2000 and I just can’t wait. They have a retreat every year but I have never been able to go until now. Lack of funds or being pregnant like last year got in the way! LOL! But this year I am going and I am just totally excited! I am flying to New York on May 24th, landing there at 7pm and meeting up with my friend Aimee and get to spend the night with her. Then my flight from New York to Texas is at 4.20pm on the 25th of May and I will arrive in Texas at 7.06pm. Have a weekend full of stitching fun and friendship, and then fly back to NY on the 29th at 12.40pm arriving in NY at 5.10pm and flying home to Iceland at 8.50pm landing in Iceland at 6.20am on the 30th of May. Wheeew! What a trip! But it will be worth it. I know I will miss my babies SO incredibly much, but it is always good to get away for a while, and coming home after a trip like this is just the best feeling ever!
Well, it is dinner time. Time to make some pasta for my hungry peeps! I am behind on blogs (again) but I will try to catch up this evening or tomorrow.
