Yes, indeed....this is going to be my afternoon to work on my cross-st. sampler. My friend has finished hers already....and doesn't that spur a person on *smile*. I had a very good cello lesson last night and a good practise this morning....I'm learning to 'think' while I practise. It does make a difference *s*. Looking at this old thread add....what is laying in the little girl's lap with it looks lilke thread around the top. Hmmm. I think my water may be boiling.....Maggie Ann is going to cook 'shells' for lunch with 'Aldi's' spagetti sauce on top. Does anyone know why Spanish is appearing all over the place in the U.S.? We stopped at McDonald's last night and there was a very large new sign in English and Spanish. I feel like something is going on we don't know about. Any insight on this???
