I am back home and catching up on e-mail (1600) and laundry! I got a lot of walking in on vacation. I also climbed what felt like a MOUNTAIN! Brady’s Bluff trail in Perrot State Park in Trempeleau! It took over an hour to reach the top of that trail! We did that Thursday afternoon and my calves are still screaming! I think I did well food wise. I mostly ate walnut burgers – no meat! Tomorrow is weigh in day so we will see. I don’t think it will be good since I deviated so badly from my normal eating, drinking and exercise schedule. If not, Monday is the next day and we have a whole new day to start over with!
I will see if I can add the vacation photos to my the site when I get in the house and have a stronger signal. It won’t let me upload this far away from the other computer. I am in the garage.
It was great to see my brother Clyde, my niece Raven and his girlfriend Terri. We only see each other once a year when Scott and I bike up to the LaCrosse/Onalaska area to visit him. We loved the Trempeleau area and will go back there again next year!
Got a bunch of STASH too at The Witchery Stitchery in Mount Horeb!
Mirabilia: White Christmas
Just Nan: Mermaid Heart with accessory pack
Waxing Moon Designs: The Most Patterns #105 says She Who Dies with the most patterns is not stitching fast enough!
Kustom Crafts: A Kiss From Mommy – Mommy and baby Unicorn
Just Nan: Spring In the Square with Vision charm
Just Nan: Winter In The Square with Vision charm
Some of the needed stuff for White Christmas : #4 very fine kreinik 032, Mill Hill Antique beads 03033, Mill HIll Frosted beads 60161, Mill Hill beads 0201, 02010, and 00968. Didn’t get them all or any of the treasures needed but figure I can order them later.
Everyone have a great evening!

Thanks Paula! It is so fun to go into a shop that actually carries the new stuff so you can SEE it. My one local shop is doing special orders only now so she isn’t stuck with several of each pattern. The other shop is more into primitive, needle punch, knitting and quilting. They stopped even getting in Shepherd’s Bush patterns! So the internet or Witchery Stitchery once a year is how I shop now!

Good stashing, great sounding trip, and the CLIMB! If your calves still hurt, I reckon you will have lost weight this week.
Well done you:)

And I bet oncce you get back to drinking all of the water you usually do, most of those 3 pounds will wash themselves right out!
