Happy Monday Everyone!

The sun finally came out around these parts on Sunday after almost a week straight of gray clouds! Today is supposed to be nice out and I intend to go out and get the stink blown offa me!! I was planning to do it yesterday but it was too windy out there. Guess that really would have blown the stink off if I had gone out yesterday huh. I should have thought of that then!

Today I tried to burn the house down. All I really accomplished though was a fire in the toaster, traumatizing the dogs and a smelly house. I'm not sure what went wrong. Same setting on the toaster that I always use, same english muffin I always toast but for some reason while I was sweeping and it was toasting......FIRE!!!! At least I know the new smoke alarms work! Don't think I will be using that toaster anymore. Got the mess cleaned up, the alarms shut off, the smoke aired out and the dogs calmed down. I don't think they suffered any permanent damage do you?

Been doing quite a bit of stitching and have made good progress on Signs of Fall. This is as of last night:

Looking good I think. Still, I doubt that I will get it finished in time to display it this year. But ya never know.

Well, I need to go vacuum the carpets. I just did it yesterday but I noticed this morning when I came down that someone (Dan) tracked sawdust all over the floor. He's working on a project for me so I guess I can't complain too loudly but really, vacuuming two days in a row is wrong! That might just really traumatize the dogs! Especially on top of the smoke alarm. Now all I need to do to guarantee total and complete insanity on Kallie's part is to start up the lawn mower. She's terrified of the lawn mower!

Till next time, may your days be bright and sunny! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Oh! did you see I have 41 followers? I was amazed! I think when I hit 50 I'm gonna have to have a give away to celebrate!

Pups do not seem too phased by all the excitement, but another vacuuming may just put them over the top. I say .... sit and stitch!! I am loving your stitch too. The colors are beautiful. you have 42 followers. I realized I had not signed up as an official follower although I do follow... go figure. Have a great week. It has finally cooled down in Florida and I am loving the cool sunshine!!

LOVE the pics of the doggies! So cute. Glad you didn't do any damage with the toaster fire. I've had my share of small fires, too. Knock-on-wood, no damage either. Yup, vacuuming 2 days in a row... wrong! lol

Oh my on the fire... The poor little doggies!!!! But, you are right, they look no worse for the wear!
Put them in the car and park it down the street, walk home and vacuum!

Your signs of Fall is beautiful as well!

Thanks for blogging, and I think I'll go out and find 9 more friends for you!
