Oh boy, it is cold. We woke up and the sun was shining. We walked down the beach and it was warm. We were saying what a beautiful day it was. On the way back up the beach, the fog had rushed in and it became cold. It was amazing that it was that fast. So we have had a fire in the fireplace and I have my sweater and wooly socks on.

I got a nice surprise yesterday. I received an email through my blog from my old friend, Mary Lou from Kansas. (Waving at you, Mary Lou!) I started chatting with Mary Lou about 7-8 years ago on the old cross stitch message board on AOL. We became online pals and eventually got to meet a few years ago, when she was visiting the area with her husband. She is a really neat lady and a wonderful friend. Life got busy and we fell out of contact. Apparently, she was on Becky's blog, and clicked on the link to my blog and found me. I am so thrilled! It just goes to show how small our little world is now with the internet.

The world really did get small with the internet. I love reading blogs from other stitchers from all over the world. My blog list has links to stitchers blogs in France, Italy, Germany, Russia, the Yukon, the Netherlands and Australia. I think this is so very cool. I am not always able to understand everything that is written, but I love to look at the stitching, photos of families and pets, gardens, and quilt projects. It is really cool to get a glimpse of everyday life in another country, and to see how really similar our lives can be. I feel like I get to catch up with my friends all around the globe everyday.

Thanks to all of you who take the time to read about my little part of the world. It really means alot to me.
