Working on ornament #12. Going kind of slow on this one. Will get it done though.

Wed evening went to a middle school football game. Was what they call a play day in that the game doesn't count toward placement. Grandson was on the team and wanted us to come so we did. Was held at a new sports park that the school district built last year just opened last month. Anyway was interesting even if our team did lose. The kids were having fun and that is what counts.

TGIF glad this was friday. Was slow at work. Only had 7 people in and 6 of them where for fingerprints which only take about 5 minutes so had a kind of boring day. Next week only going to work 3 days then take another couple of days off. Then will only have 2 more days to use this year and I have them scheduled for the middle of November.

Guess I will close for now as it is about time to let the ferrets out for their evening play time. So will be back tormorrow.

Where does the time go. I had 3 days off work plus the weekend and only made it in here once. Worked on ornaments and have 10 almost done. 2 more and then some trim to add and I will be able to mail them to the ladies in the exchange. Then I can do the set for me and my family.

Watched a couple of good football games Sunday and last night. Sunday watched Denver get beat. Then last night was the Kansas City Chiefs game and they won. Very exciting first time ever they have been 7 and 0. They need to keep things going cause these last 2 games were just too close.

Well better get back to work. Might check in later this evening from home. Have a great day!

Off work today. Don't go back till Monday using 3 days vacation. Got new car tag today, really just a new sticker for 2004. Also paid personal property tax. Much better paying in the middle of month than at the end when everyone else is trying to get in so they won't have to pay a penalty.

Got another ornament done last evening and started on the next. Making good progress so maybe be able to mail these before the end of the month.

One more done. Took longer than I expected. This one had 45 french knots. Not one of my favorite stitches.

Going to bed now.

Have a great day!!!
Long day at work. Very slow and doing paperwork all day and that makes things drag. Weekend was good. Watched the Chiefs win their football game. That makes them 6 and 0 for the year. YEAH!

Working on Christmas ornaments for an exchange. Have 2 finished. Another one almost needed some darker floss for some highlights and it has a place for a name and I haven't decided who it will go to yet so didn't put the name on. 4th one is about half done. Will work on it during Fear Factor tonight. Have to have 12 ornaments for the exchange and I will probably do 24 as I also give ornaments to the family each year.

Have to get back to work. Only have about 40 minutes to go.

Have a great day!!
