Please Pardon My Tardiness . . .

Oh my!  I just sat down in front of the sewing machine to work on my Scrap Basket Sunday project, Pie in the Sky, and I realized I hadn't posted Mister Linky for those of you also working on SBS projects!

It's been a busy few days and when I last wrote, I was suffering post-bowling aches and pains--or the beginning of them, anyway.  I have a little arthritis in my bowling hand, and one of my fingers has been giving me a bit of trouble.  I was also just generally achy and tired on Thursday, but it really felt pretty good to have had an active day on Wednesday.  Still, I had to skip CrossFit Thursday night because I ended up working until 8 p.m.

Why?  Because I was taking Friday off work to run a few errands and tidy up the house before I hosted all my stitchery friends on Saturday.  I made up for slacking on CrossFit on Thursday by attending an open gym on Friday evening and going through the CrossFit paces--that felt good too.  I wish I could always go on Friday instead of Thursday; back to back Wednesday and Thursday workouts aren't as much fun, but I don't really want to be all sweaty on Friday nights--not when it's "date night" with Hubby at any rate.  And going home and taking a shower just makes me want to put on my jammies afterward!

Friday night I made dough for homemade cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting for the stitchery gals gathering--we always gather for a mid-morning breakfast and stay all day until early evening, stitching, eating, and chatting.  On Saturday morning, I assembled the ingredients for 9-Can Soup in the crockpot, and I was nearly ready to entertain.  (I've posted the recipe for the soup before--it's super simple and delicious.  It can be found HERE.)

I took a photo or two of the tablescape before everyone arrived--if they turned out okay, I'll post one later.  In the meantime, here's Mister Linky--I'll be back tonight to show you what I've accomplished.  I hope you'll link up to share too!
