Unfortunately I had to miss the April TUSAL, but glad that the one for May was at the end of the month, so here it is a tad late...

My little jar continues to fill with cross stitching, stitchery, and sewing ORTs and scraps.

I LOVE this pattern and have been wanting to stitch it for quite some time. It is a complimentary chart from Blackbird Designs and can be found HERE.

I'm still debating whether I want to add a year to the bottom right hand corner.

So... my computer charger died. I haven't gotten a new one yet. The best prices are on ebay, but I'd have to make an account there.

My son's computer charger also died, but his was from lack of proper care. Hubby was able to fix it after we took Boo to the electronics store and he saw that a new one would be $80! He wouldn't let dad touch it before he saw the prices for himself. So he is able to use his MacBook again.

We have been looking for a new laptop for me. Thankfully they have come way down in price over the years.

I have tons of pics on my camera. I may have to borrow Boo's computer to get them off. I'm worried I will run out of room! It is very time consuming to do photos on his laptop, which I don't look forward to, but it must get done. :-p

In the garden we planted white and orange pumpkins. We also have Boo's potatoes that he started from a science project. He chose a couple varieties of small organic potatoes (red and yellow I think.) Sidekick wanted strawberries so we planted two plants, but I don't think we'll get any fruit this year. And then there's squashes and zucchini. And a bell pepper and hot pepper. One beefsteak tomato and several volunteer cherry tomatoes that are producing like crazy. I think that's it for now.

I better run before the library computer kicks me off!

I'm reading some of your blogs, but don't have time to comment, or to post to mine often.
