Where does the time go?

Wow - I can't believe how long it's been since I posted!! We have been pretty busy. It's hard to work on a computer 40 hours a week and then come home and get on the computer - so there's that!! I start a new job June 2nd - hope it's better than my current one.
I do have a few fun things to tell you about. I will start with letterboxing meets.... We went to one in Dillsburg PA - it was a Star Wars themed meet put on by a wonderful person we met at Live and Breathe last August - Paula. She did such a great job - we had so much fun!! We also got lucky and "Our Girls" were there from Live and Breathe too - Kristen and Becki - we got to meet one husband and all but one child of theirs. We spent the day together and then went to dinner. It was a really fun day!! Dillsburg is a really cute town!!

When we were in PA we ate at another diner.

eggplant parm

meatball sub / fries with gravy

wedding soup
We also visited the memorial for Flight 93 - I'm glad we went, it's a nice memorial.

We had two meets in one month!! There was one an hour and a half from our house at a campground. We hiked 8 miles that day through 4 streams - we had a nice time at that one too. We missed our friends being there..... but they live in WV!!!

I haven't finished any cross stitch- never enough time to stitch!! I did crochet a road kill possum - a letterboxer bought the pattern for me and paid me to make it for him. I will be making one for Scott and I as well.

I am almost done with that blasted Little House Needlworks mystery sampler - so close. I can't wait for it to be done - not my favorite project at all.
I bought a "Fitbit" it keeps track of your steps but you can log water, food, weight  and sleep. It's a bracelet and a phone app and I love it. Who knew how little I moved around? Even wearing it - working a sit down job I struggle to get 10,000 steps a day. We found a lovely trail - in town - that we have been going to. I love it - it is 1.69 miles and parts are pretty steep but for being right in town - it is beautiful!!

Out next trip is to New York with "Our Girls" Kristen and Becki for letterboxing - I'm so excited I can hardly wait!! If the 8 hour hike doesn't kill us we will have a really great time!!!
Taylor knitted me a purse and a dishrag for Mother's Day - what a nice girl!!

my model
My son is on his way here from Santa Fe NM - he will be staying with us until school starts again - 3 long months. I might strangle him. I texted him about the drive here and if he was standing closer I would have already done it. grrr
Look what Scott found in the yard

Isn't that adorable?!?! I am waiting for the fireflies to start their show - I hope we have lots of them out here!!
 I don't have my Gram's autograph book with me so it will have to wait until next time. Maybe by the end of the week I can post a finish - and an autograph page. The last pictures are panoramic so you might have to click on them - they show the difference in the trees here - lovely!!

Hope you have a good week - thanks for stopping by!!
