Hobo Happy Dance!

I got him finished! I'm feeling some better. I'm not near as congested today as I was yesterday! I was able to cross stitch enough during the last 2 days to get this little fellow finished! While I was stitching his shoes, that creamy yellow and light brown soles reminded me of cheesecake - my favorite dessert! I was craving it so bad that I sent DD to BJs to get me one. It's really not going off my diet - I was sick and needed the cheesecake to help get my strength back! lol Hopefully, one more day of rest will make me well enough to sub on Thur. and Fri.
I'm going to finish Pooh next; although I really want to do another spring piece. BUT Pooh is due May 15th; so he can't wait.
I can't believe how warm it has been here in SC! Today it got up to 90 degrees! The weatherman said the record high for our area for today is 91 degrees. I hope this doesn't mean this summer is going to be a scorcher!! DD went swimming today with her friends! When I was little, today would have been the first day we could go outside barefooted!! lol There were a lot of "rules" like that when I was little. We were very obedient and followed everyone of those "rules"! Boy! Kids nowadays wouldn't!! My own children were always so warm-blooded! Once when DD was about 5-yrs.-old, it snowed. I bundled her up in longjohn underwear, several shirts and pairs of pants, coat, gloves, scarf, hat - the whole winter deal. A little while later I looked out and she was out there in her bikini!! I ran out there and said, "What are you doing?!" She said, "I was way too hot, Mommy!" Needless to say, I made her put on something a little warmer than a bikini, but not as much clothing as the first time! Such happy memories!!
Guess I'd better head back to bed so I can get well! Have a happy day and may God bless you!

Wish I could wear a bikini. I wouldn't even have to go outside with it on. Just knowing I could wear it would work for me. Made me laugh.
