Same old Crap!

Not much going on here to blog about. I am soooo bored!! I thought I would love being at home...but I don't! I thought I would scrap and just have so much fun during the day while ds was in school. Well...none of that is happening! I have been cross stitching and watching my soaps...but even they are getting boring. I want to scrapbook but I just cannot bring myself to doing it. I have had a LO on my table,started for a while now and I just have no desire to go in there and work on it. What is wrong with me?? I am guessing that I need some new inspiration...where to find it? I did start reading a book today called 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper and Cecil Murphey. My mom got the book for Christmas and loved it and she passed it on to me. I think I am only 20 pages into it but it seems like a really good book. (I'll let you know when I am finished!) So...any one have any ideas to get my creative juices flowing again?? Leave me a comment with your ideas...please!

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that)American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again.A close up!HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next.Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post, I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am.

I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me.

I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}.

!Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week.

!TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming list live here…

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!
