Lazy week

So far I'm not getting much accomplished with my stitching goals this week. I didn't touch anything on my days off. It turned out that my boss asked me to attend a training session in Ottawa for a new instrument we've recently purchased. Since it was my day off they agreed to give me time owing. I'm thinking of using it next Friday at the start of my holidays so that we can get away sooner. Since my return to work I've been swamped! When I get home, I read my blogs, have supper and then pretty well crash. Today is the first time I've picked up any stitching. I didn't have much left to finish on FCC so I managed to get that done. Another happy dance! The fabric in the picture looks more gray than blue but it is a lovely pale blue Jubilee.

I don't expect I'll get much more done in the next few days either. After work tomorrow night I'm headed to a farewell dinner for one of my colleagues. Saturday after lunch I'm supposed to drive to Drummondville, Quebec to pick up my son Jeff and granddaughters. I'm bringing them back to my place for a few days. The plant where Jeff works shuts down for the last two weeks of July. Since I don't get to see them very often I thought that this was a perfect opportunity for them to spend some time with us. Jeff's better half Mimi (short for Myriam), just returned to work following maternity leave so is unable to take any time off. They plan on staying with us until Wednesday at which time Jeff's Dad will pick them up and take them to his place for a few days. Then he will do the return trip to Quebec. I have to work during this time but at least I will get to spend time with the girls in the evening.
Now I'm off to decide which chart I'll start stitching next. I have the Celtic Heart all kitted up and ready to go as well as Dinky Dyes Blossom. I hope I can manage to put a few stitches in before bed.
