No Sleep

I have been up since 4 am, I don't know why, so I've been working on another model for Lori.  I think this one is the best one yet, but I think I say that about each one as I'm working on it.  I have been in  "make all kinds of cool stuff" mode since coming back from Simple Goods...I made a pretty poinsettia wool applique yesterday at 4 am...
I went over to Lori's house yesterday to sit and stitch, and Jason called while I was there.  He asked me if I had ordered anything recently.  He said Nathan had just come to him and said that "some man had just brought him some toys and put them on the porch".  Jason came to see Nathan standing, staring though the door glass at a mountain of boxes with "TOYS" pictured them.  I said darn it, now he knows who Santa Claus is!!
Today I have to take Wendell back to the vet to make sure she is 100%.  I think she is doing great. 
And it is also clean out the gutters day, how much fun can a person have in one day?
Now for my 5 thankfuls
- Nathan is such a loving, happy, independent and unique little person, I just want to squishi him all over!!
- I am thankful for Jason in advance for cleaning out the gutters : )
-  I know I didn't go to church this past Sunday, but the Sunday before, my paster Mickey Ryan, gave the most right on and thought provoking sermon, he always does, and I am so thankful for him.
-  I forgot to mention yesterday, but my mom-in-law Nita, kept my babies so I could go to Simple Goods, THANK YOU
-  and finally, hats off to the UPS man for bringing toys!
