Zumba trial classes are over!

We really had fun with the Zumba workout the last four weeks, even if we had dificulty following some of the steps especially the movemnets of the hips and shoulders all at once. There were enough people who are interested so there will be classes which will start in September. I sure signed in too and can't wait...I do try though to practice here at home with the help of films through You Tube. I noticed though that the more i am busy with this workout the more i crave something to eat especially salty snacks. hmmmmm!!!

I had been stitching and finished July, August and September Birthstone & flower samplers. After finishing the June one for the giveaway i decided to try and stitch all of them, from a booklet of The World of Cross Stitching. Just have to do the hemstitching for July and September then they are ready to fill in.

Received a box of Nora Roberts books this afternoon, English ones! I miss reading english books and all they have at the library either i've read it or it's not to my taste. I know one of my friends at the mainland buys lots of English books(that's her hobby) so i ask her to lend me some as you can see, one of the authors she loves is Nora Roberts...me too actually, so i especially asked for it. She does has different crime books but i've chosen the romance ones.
This sure distract me from my stitching!!

I will leave you with a few pictures of my flowers at the backyard.

Planted these violets last march, aren't they lovely!

And these flowers, can't remember the name anymore!



These my other peony finally in bloom!

I am feeling much better, THANKS so much for all the kind comments.

Hope everyone's having a good week!!
