Haven't blogged in days, I honestly do not know where the time goes. It's been lovely weather since the tropical storm went through and I'm loving it. Also got our electric bill for August and I was happy with it. Our house is all electric and I try to be thrifty with the air conditioner, but when it's hot, it's hot and I want air conditioning. So to get a reasonable bill after we'd used the air conditioning so much was a pleasant surprise.
When I've gotten my work, exercise and piano practice done for the day I've been busy with the cross stitching project. I watched several You Tube videos and read some blogs. You'd think you just make X's and off you go, but it turns out it's a bit more complicated than that. You start in the middle and work left to right and make half an X, in other words a whole line of /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////.

That's easy enough, it's counting the spaces in between that's blinding me. They're so tiny. But I'm making progress and I'm pleased.
Today it was off to the commissary, a commissary that's being remodeled while we shop, the aisles are so narrow now that there's barely room for one shopping cart. What a mess! And we found out that this is going to be going on for a year, YIKES! But then, as Mac said, it beats having them close it while they remodel. Then we'd have to drive out to Ft. Stewart which is much further away and a total pill to get to. So a little inconvenience versus a big inconvenience.
