I have really become a bad blogger. There is so much going on and nothing at all - weird but true. I have been sick - I have had three respiratory illness since December. I am tired of it. This one was like breathing through cotton. I coughed so hard my ribs hurt. I probably should have gone to the doctor but who has the energy for that? I am finally feeling better - although last night I spent several hours on the couch trying not to keep Scott awake. Between my bagpipe breathing, coughing and the dumb cat yowling away in the bathroom (yes, I still lock him up but he has managed to shred one of the new chairs even though I watch him like a hawk) I hardly slept at all. Albuterol and decongestant are the only things keeping me going. I really do feel better though - doesn't sound like it but I do. I have a few stitchy things to show but school as really cramped the stitching. Scott and I made some tea boxes for our mothers - and one for me - for mother's day. Scott did everything but the stitching. He is so good at finishing projects!! Sometime this week I am posting a tutorial - at the request of some of my Instagram followers- on how he finishes pictures.

I have been reading some books by Sarah J Maas. Two different series. One of the "Court of Roses and Thorns" Is really good. The last book came out May 2nd (and actually she is going to do more books from this trilogy - which makes in NOT a trilogy) I actually bought the book - I never buy books but I just had to read the next one - it was missing 33 pages in the middle. Then on several of her books I get the CDs from the library - well somehow on three different books I missed one CD - it seems like a conspiracy, except it's my own incompetence (well not on the actual book - but still). How annoying, guess I need to pay better attention.
Scott and I went to the Woodburn tulip festival - there were so many people that it took us two hours of sitting on the road to get into the place. Very pretty. They had craft booths and food. I managed to get a few pictures with hardly any people in them - the crowd was crazy big!!
Patrick Dougherty had put up a stick sculpture in Oregon so we went to see it. He has these all over the place - so you should check and see if there is one in your area - very cool exhibit!!
For Mother's Day my son bought me flowers and gave me a gift certificate to Bath and Body - what a nice boy!!
My mom and stepdad have cows at their house. Every year they have babies and then they take them to the ranch for the summer. One of the cows had trouble having her baby - it's her first - so they had to help her and then she walked away. Sometimes that happens and the babies die but my mom and stepdad are bottle feeding this one. HE IS SO CUTE!!!! I wish I lived closer so I could go love on him. He thinks Brian is his mother - my mom says the cow - named Slider - makes cute noises when Brian calls his name. So cute!!

|AHHH he is so cute it's killing me!!!|
So that is all I know - told you busy but not at all. School work is busy work and you don't want to see pictures of that! I hate math but I never thought I could hate it more - statistics - ugh worse math ever. First you have to learn formulas and then they are in Greek and you have to know when to use which one - ugh NO just NOOOOO.
Hope you are having a lovely Spring. I will try not to stay away so long next time!!
