More awesome pictures to show to you!

Ok -- maybe you're wondering about the interesting critter that I mentioned on my last post ... or maybe not. =P

We were hanging Halloween lights on the porch and I was helping Donald by holding the lights up off the ground. I don't like getting on the chair at all! So he was hanging them, and I looked over at the cherry tomato plant that has been hanging since the spring. And saw this---!

Would you believe it?? A praying mantis ... I haven't seen one since I was a little kid. Granted some of you still think I am a kid LOL ... but this bad boy was just hanging out on a limb of the plant. I was like OMG -- Donald look! He was like yea ok -- whatever. I called out for Justin to come take a look -- same reaction. They have to be related!! I was snapping photos like a weirdo. At least you don't have to worry about the mantis moving while you're taking shots ... (think about that)..HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Well tomorrow evening is the big day -- I already have my clothes picked out. Gonna shower a few hours before and do my hair. I'm not going to wear a ton of make-up ... not the place for it I think. Another finish that I got done doing about 2 wks ago. It's a needlepoint purse. I got it at a garage sale for a dollar!! It was marked $17.85 and was brand new!! I love getting good deals! I hope that everyone has a wonderful week!!

Keep Stitching,


  1. The kids and I saw a praying mantis the other day too! Weird! DD took a pic but with her phone, and we have not figured out how to send anything on it- it's asking us for a password and we don't know what it is. lol Love the needlepoint purse! What a great deal!

  2. Love the needle point purse & what a deal!
