Party's Over!!

Thank goodness the party's over!! What a day we had!! Now we have been preparing for this darn party for over a week~~that's why I haven't been here. I've been staining the decks,weeding,mulching,planting planters,cleaning~~things I would have done anyway but not in such a small time span! Got it all done Saturday night after helping my friend at her market part of the day. It rained and was cold and windy~~cleared up right after I left!!
Rushed home after stopping at DD's to take care of her dogs to do my planters~~got them done right before it got dark. Kk and I went out to grab a bite to eat I could have fallen asleep waiting for my food!
Sunday morning I was afraid to look outside to see what the weather was~~but to my surprise the sun was shining and there was no wind!! I was thrilled~~we lucked out!!! Rain was predicted! Kk and I rushed around and got things ready ~~put out all the lawn chair cushions and I hung up some decorations I had. One o'clock was the magic time~~sun's till shining things are looking good~~1:15 rolls around I hear a car pull up and look out~~~first guest is here and there is a mammoth black cloud overhead!!! I can not believe what I'm seeing!!! As they are coming up the driveway it starts sprinkling!! It stops~~more people come and the wind picks up and it's a cold wind and the rain comes!! We're running around getting the chair cushions picked up~~in case it stops they'll be dry. In we all went~~I was so annoyed that I couldn't enjoy myself. I was so tired and then to have it rain was just too much!!
At least the food was plentiful and good~~everyone was joking about the weather but it was still very annoying! The rain stopped and we did get back out but it sure got chilly! That was a good excuse to get a fire going in the Chiminena (that spelling is waaay off~lol) everyone liked that! So despite the weather we ate and drank way too much!! Everyone left around 9:30 and by 10 I had my bath a cup of tea and was headed for bed! Talk about tired~~some party animal! I've decided it's more fun to go to a party at someone else's house!!
Get up this morning and the sun's shining away!! We cleaned up all morning and then Kk and I went out ~~did not feel like doing a darn thing in the house!
Stopped at DD's because she wanted us to see some gardening she got finished. She was so proud of herself! Nice when you see your kids happy and content!
Kk and I brought donuts and pop so we sat out side and they took a much needed break. As we're munching away along comes a huge black cloud and it starts sprinkling!! Maybe it's us???
We left and let them get back to work and we stopped at Barnes and Noble. That's always relaxing. Had my favorite cafe mocha with a shot of raspberry syrup and looked through some gardening books. I'd like to do up some more pots on my back deck. It gets a lot of sun and it's right off my kitchen so I go out there a lot. The decks are getting a bit old and worn looking even after staining them~~the plants make it look so much nicer. I keep a small table and two chairs out there where I like to have coffee and read. There's no roof so it's only for nice days~~and if it's real sunny sometimes it gets too hot to read or knit~~then I move to the yard. One good thing about sitting on the deck tho is there isn't usually any bugs to bother you!
No knitting today or tonight~~not in the mood and I'm tired so I'm going to read some emails and then get to bed early for a change!
Off for tea~~

I'm way beyond

exhausted!! Every bone and muscle aches~~even my hair hurts!! I stained one gallon's worth of the decks today and I've discovered parts I didn't know I had!! It was so nice out~quiet,sunny,warm and I really enjoyed being out there doing it but now I'm so achy!! Here I am covered in stain even in my hair dirty old mulch up to my elbows my jeans were soaked to the knees and I hear "hello" ~~I'm thinking "OH,NO, not company" ~~a friend stopped to say hello and say they'd be over Sunday. I was so embarrassed!! He was just out taking a cruise on his bike and rode by--I was so glad his wife wasn't with him then I would have had to ask them in for coffee or a drink!
Anyway I'm glad they'll make it to the "party".
Poor Sophie had to stay in most of the day~~there was no way I could watch her and try to paint~~I'd be chasing her all over the back yard! So after I soaked in a hot bath I took her out in the yard for a bit. She was running around like mad!! Sure different from the puppy I had a couple weeks ago!!
Needless to say no knitting got done today. Had the button bag outside drying. I did pick up some material to line it so maybe tomorrow I can work on that.
Going to knit a bit now on the Opal socks.
Off to knit

Hard working Man!

Finally a Sign Of Spring!

Tuesday, May 24, 2005

Sometimes you just need a quick project to give you a boost!! Yesterday I decided it was time to try the button hole bag that I've been thinking about! So last evening out came the Lamb's Pride and I was off!! Had errands to do this morning so I didn't get back to it until about 3 this afternoon and finished it up at 10 tonight. Now how could I possibly leave it until tomorrow to felt?? No way could I wait!! Two cycles through the wash and it was done! House reeks of wet wool but hey, it's done!!
I didn't have anything that would fit to block it so I wound up stuffing it with plastic bags and using bag clips to keep the handles nice.
One thing I figured out for future projects~~not all colors felt at the same rate. The Chianti felted rather quickly but the rose took longer. I had taken the bag out of the washer and brought it up to the sink to rinse real good with cold water through the sprayer when I realized it had to go back in. The handles were a bit loose compared to the body. So the second wash was necessary.
Now that's done I can go back and work on my sweater!!
Weather has been nasty again~~mid 50's was the high today but it rained on and off most of the day. Tomorrow is predicted to be somewhat better. I sure hope so ~~KK's day off.
Off to read emails~~

Felted and Drying!


Sunday, May 22, 2005

This has been another busy day! Kk and I got up early since it wasn't raining and went to Antique World~~which is really just another way of saying "flea market"! It was sunny but it was really chilly! When the sun hit you it was ok but the clouds were never ending! The breeze was cold! I felt sorry for some of the people that had tables under the trees~~it was darn right cold there! I don't see where it was worth staying for some of them. So much junk!!lol~~
Some times I really get into browsing but not today~~and it was my great idea to go!
Only good thing no $$ was spent! Oh wait, I lied~~I did find a charm for my Italian charm bracelet. I could not pass it up when I saw it had a Boston Terrier on it!! So that was the big buy of the day! We did talk with a couple that had two Bostons with them. One was huge!! It weighed 28 lbs!!! The other was 18~~and her name was Sophie too!! They said they were great dogs and were very happy with them.
When we were on the way home DS called so we picked him up and then picked up DGD. Wound up taking her out for the day. Stopped for lunch/dinner and then drove to the lake. She loved that~~throwing rocks was great fun! Came back here for a while so she could play with Sophie~~she likes her because Sophie is more her size!
I've been working a bit on my orange sleeve. They aren't going to be exactly the same!! I did the increases on the pearl rows on the first sleeve and I'm doing them on the knit this sleeve! Not quite sure how I managed that one! I don't think it will matter in the finished garment?
Kk fell asleep and DS is watching tv~~I hate to take him back to his apartment too early because he doesn't have cable hooked up yet for his tv~~he gets so bored!! Hopefully he'll be able to get it soon. He tried using an antenna but it wouldn't work and I said for $40 take the darn thing back!!
Breaks over~~
Off to knit!!

Happy Anniversary to Us!!

Today was interesting for sure!! You will never guess in a million years what we did this morning!! And don't be thinking that either!! This required a long drive and much courage on KK's part!! lol~~
We have this beautiful state park about an hour and a half from us~~we used to rent cabins there when the kids were young. We always enjoyed staying there even tho camping isn't exactly my thing! Anyway bright and early we headed out and KK wouldn't tell me where the heck we were going! After driving a bit I knew the route and wondered why we were going to the park again after just being there last week on his day off. Well surprise me he did!! I've been wanting to ride through the woods on horseback not that I'm any great rider but I've gone a few times and enjoyed it.
KK doesn't ~~~
We get got to the park and head right over to where the horses are and all the while I'm thinking this is weird! We got there just as they were unloading the horses from the trailer. There were quite a few babies !! The babies were all loose and wandered where ever they wanted! It was awesome!!
You must sign release forms that are pages long!! Made you wonder if you really wanted to do this! As you can see from the following photos we did!!
It was so great riding through the wood's~~four of us went. We are riding along and Misty's baby would come running up next to us and grab my pant leg!! We passed another group and we somehow picked up another colt!! It was so funny watching the two of them running together loose through the woods~~they were just like little puppies playing! We rode into a clearing where there were some deer and they paid us no mind~~just kept munching away!
We made it back safe and sound~~other than my knee didn't want to straighten when it was time to dismount we were fine!
After leaving that end of the park we went to the other end where they were having a Civil War battle. That was fun to watch. It was so interesting to see all the dresses. I loved them!! It was on the cool side today so they were comfortable in their outfits. Tents were set up and folks were cooking on open fires~~smelled sooo good!
We came back home to feed the dogs and now we are going back out for a bit. Going to get something for dinner and maybe do a bit of shopping. I need to return my broken knitting needle!! That's a must!
Off to change~~

hmmm, Who are they???

We're Off

KK ~~Do we really have to do this??

What's so funny???

Misty, Baby and I

Can I bring her home???

Friday, May 20, 2005

It was a beautiful sunny day today!! It could have been a tad warmer for me but all in all a nice day! Went by so fast~~got up early and had coffee and read a bit then went out and did a couple errands. Got home and took the dogs out in the yard for awhile~~Sophie thinks that Ivy(greyhound) is her special toy!! I'm really surprised that Ivy puts up with her!
Went and picked up DS and when we got back DD was here too! Course when she's here she gets all the animals going! What a pain!! lol~~
KK got home while they were still here and next thing I knew we're having a party here next weekend!! OMG~~do you know how much needs to be done around here???? The back deck needs staining in the worst way and the front porch needs sanding and painting!! Guess who is going to be going nuts this next week?? Wonder how much I'll get done??
Tomorrow is our anniversary! For all those who thought " it'll never last" this is
#36!!!! Can you imagine??? Seems impossible ~~I can't be old enough to be married that long! I was a child bride! I think back to how crazy we were~~we knew each other only three months and here we are 36 years later! We didn't have our daughter for 11 years and we used to joke that we wanted to prove that it wasn't a "have to" thing! Where does the time go???
KK took the day off but as far as I know we don't have anything special planned. I'm sure we'll go somewhere for dinner but don't know what we're doing during the day. Maybe picking out stain?? How exciting!!
Working on the second sleeve of the orange sweater but I broke my needle!! So that is one stop I'll want to make tomorrow~~I need my needles!!
This is a rambling post sort of random thoughts floating around~~my tower is making that weird noise again so I'm getting off for now.
Off to knit~~

Wednesday, May 18, 2005

Still Here!!

Well, I'm back and so far nothing has happened with that noise! I haven't heard it at all this evening since I've been on. Keeping fingers crossed ~~ I wouldn't know what to do if I lost this thing! Getting a new one is certainly not in the budget for some time! Since I'm the only one who really uses this it wouldn't be top priority to replace.
Today was really nice! Got up to 70 later in the afternoon. DD is on vacation this week so KK and I picked her up this morning and headed out for the day. KK asked her where she'd like to go ~~she says "Tim Horton's?" lol~~I definitely raised that girl right!! So that was our first stop and then on to the Wednesday flea market waaayyy the heck out in the middle of nowhere!! It's an interesting place to say the least! I've never been to a flea market where they have chickens,calves,turkeys etc. and I do mean live ones!! Lots of flowers of course this time of year. Nice to see all the varieties~~almost makes me want to do "something" in the yard!! Notice I did say "almost". KK did get me a flowering shrub that smells heavenly!! Course I already forgot what it's called!! It has cluster type white flowers~~pretty. I have no idea where I'm going to plant it but I'm sure I'll find a spot.
Finished the first sleeve of the orange sweater. Tomorrow I'll cast on the second one. I'm going to work a bit on the socks tonight before bed.
I'm looking forward to a day to stay home~~all this running around has done me in. Only have to go out for a hair cut in the afternoon and then right back here to knit!
Nothing much else to write about so I'm
Off for a hot bath and then knit~~~

Tuesday, May 17, 2005


I'm jumping on here quick to say that I have a sinking feeling I may be losing my computer!! I haven't posted for awhile because I haven't felt up to par the last week. Now this morning when I came down here I'm hearing this strange sound??? It's the computer tower~all of a sudden it sounds like it's racing then slowing down?? Doesn't sound good whatever it is! At first I thought it was my imagination but no~~
I started my orange sweater~~the first sleeve is almost done~~I'm at the shoulder decreases. There's about 15 more rows then on to the second one.
Weather is nasty again~~cold!! There was a frost last night. Was going to DD's today she's on vacation this week and we were going to start her a garden. Not doing that today!! Poor plants must be shivering in their pots!!
Must get going so if I'm not on for a bit you know what happened!! I'm going to shut this off for the day and I'll try to get on tonight~~wish me luck!!
Sophie is three months today!! Growing like mad all of a sudden!! The photos of her is from yesterday~~leave it to her to find the single dandelion in the back yard!!
Off to visit DD~~~

Now That's A Button!!

Did you see that button??? The top one??? Is that awesome or what
made it for me! I think it's
perfect!! Of course that's Sophie again as if you didn't know! I'm so excited I have a button!! It is the little things in life~~lol
I'm also happy it's beautiful out this morning ~~and it's KK's day off!! He lucked out this week for a change. The past few weeks it's been really nasty on his day off. It's going to rain late today but who cares then?
Tonight is knit night at Lynn's
I'm hoping to go. I stayed up last night and turned the heel of sock one and this morning while KK is getting the car looked at I'm going to do the second.(if I ever get off here)
I got the sweater pattern Lynn is doing and I'd like to take it with me and have her help me get it started. I'm not sure what size I should do. This is what I got that orange cotton-ease for. Course Lisa probably has hers all finished!! She's doing one in the same orange!
I can't sit here any longer that sock is calling me to get that heel done!! So, more coffee,get dressed and knit until KK gets back!
Off for coffee!!

Monday, May 09, 2005

Quick post!!

Stopping here real quick before bed ~~too tired to post much right now. Worked in the yard a bit and I'm beat!! Talk about out of shape~~
Anyway, did you see my button?? What do ya think?? Shall I keep it or do another?? That of course is Sophie ~~that picture is so cute but not sure if it looks ok for a button? Tell me what you think??
Working on the Opal socks for Heather
They're coming along nicely. To the heel flap on both. I'd like to get to the gusset stitches tomorrow. Have things to do out so not sure how much knitting I'll get in.
Hope all you "mom's" had a great Mother's Day! I had a wonderful one! DD's brunch was so nice!! Other than she cut her finger (on a butter knife) just as we got there everything went well. The weather added the perfect touch!
KK surprised me with the cutest ceramic piece~~I saw it weeks ago at Kirklands and I cracked up! It's three frogs sitting on a log and the words Live Laugh Love are carved in the log. I have that saying hanging in my "studio". He also got me a cd player belt to wear when walking. I've wanted one for the cd player DD gifted me with. Ds is picking up a soft-crate for Sophie so I can take her in the car.
DD did a couple photos of Sophie and framed one for me. I kept saying I wanted a "real" picture of her not just the ones on here.
Enough rambling for tonight I need to get some sleep!!
Off to bed~~~

PINK Chibi!!!

Feather&Fan ??

New Opal

Titles are a Pain!

When there is nothing exciting to write about how can you come up with a catchy title?? ya can't and I'm not going to try anymore!
Nothing much going on today~~the weather was great~~at least compared to what we have had. It was warm and sunny and it's going to stay that way through the weekend. How nice for Mother's Day!!
Sophie had her second vet visit which went well and didn't cost me a fortune! Had her second set of puppy shots which she did not like! She weighed in at 2.4 lbs!! Wow, growing like a weed! Went to Pet Smart and got her a harness~~had to get the smallest one they had and she's got room. She didn't seem to mind having it on which surprised me.
I did start the first pair of Opal socks today.After three false starts I hope I have the right amount of stitches. I've got the ribbing done on both so I really don't want to start again!
I have the yarn for my F&F shawl~~I'll post a photo in a minute~~it's awesome!! Schafer 50% wool ~~50% silk!! I won't let myself start it until this pair of socks is completed because these are for my friend. Mine I can do anytime.
Another great package came from Justine
Can you believe a pink chibi???? You do realize one of these was on ebay and the last I heard the bid was $51!!! Is that absolutely nuts???? I don't even want to open the package--it's in Chinese!! Justine also included a couple stitch markers she made!! Thank you Justine, I love them!!
I have the worst indigestion tonight~~I know it's from that meatloaf I made for dinner. I hate meatloaf!!! I had a brainstorm at the market the other day~~I bought some ground pork to add to the ground beef. It was good actually ~~for meatloaf that is. You'd think after almost 36 years of making KK meatloaf(his favorite) I'd have come up with a good way to disguise it!! yuk~~
Well, I know this was a boring post but hey, it was a boring kinda day!!
Off for some tums!!

New Shop

My friend and I went to a new shop this afternoon!! I should say new to us~~it was terrific! By far this was the best shop I've ever been in so far. It's located in Rochester,NY and called Spirit Work
Talk about fiber overload~~you really didn't know what to look at first!
When I get like that I head straight for the sock yarn! They carried Opal so I was thrilled!! They had the Opal solids too which I think next time I go I will pick some up. My friend Heather
chose a skein for socks for her that I'll knit up and she purchased the skein I picked for me as payment for knitting her pair. Worked out well for both of us!
I was happy to find the 40" addi circulars I've been trying to find. I decided two sets was the thing to do. Now I can do both socks at once working back and forth between the two on needles that match in size.
This is definitely a shop that I'll go back to even tho it took us about 1 1/2 hrs. to get there. Better start saving my $$~~
Enough rambling for tonight~~
Off for a hot bath~~

hmm, this could be a problem!!

Knit Picks Zinnia Yarn

Raok for Sophie & I

Great Mail Day!!

A day that started out down in the dumps took a turn for the good after the mail came!! KK and I went out grocery shopping and when we came home there was a package on the steps~~it was to me and Sophie!!! I'm thinking "what could this be?"
What a surprise when I opened it~~Dani
Sent us a package!! I couldn't even wait to put the groceries away I had to open it immediately!! There was a Boston Terrier magazine for me and for Sophie a bag of the cutest smallest biscuits I've ever seen!! Taped to the front of the bag were two tiny greenies!! I'm such a sap over this puppy~~when I saw all that I felt big tears in my eyes~~how silly,huh?? I just could not believe that she did this!! This was one of the sweetest RAOK's I've ever received!! A very big "hug" and "Thank you" to Dani!!!!
Now you know that I had to take pictures~~Mz Sophie agreed and posed with the goodies!! Couldn't get her to stay still tho~~she was quite busy trying to figure out how to get to the biscuits!! She has never had one yet and she loved these!! They are the perfect size for her!!
Finished my Knit Picks socks yesterday~~I'll get a photo of them on too. Can't decide what to start next. I'm trying to find a set of 40" circulars but so far no luck locally.
I think my friend and I are going to go to a yarn shop we've never been to tomorrow so maybe I'll find some there. Keep your fingers crossed!!
My ebay yarn came too~~I can't wait to see how it works up! I hope it does some thing different than stripes. In the photo they had it looks like it pools~~I hope so!
Off for tea~~

Monday, May 02, 2005


Here is what I want to do now! Feather an Fan Comfort Shawl
Isn't it nice?? I just can not decide what yarn to use for it. Of course I don't have enough of anything already. This is what I was thinking of ordering the Shimmer yarn from Knit Picks for. I'm not sure if it would be a heavy enough weight for this particular pattern. I wish I knew someone who did it so I could ask what they think. I don't want this to be heavy~~I'd like it light and drapey. Make sense?
Seems when I want to start a new project I can not get myself to settle down until I do. I've been sort of wandering around the house this morning. Laundry is in and I dusted and that's a good thing but I keep thinking about those socks I want done!!
Today!! Not gonna happen!!
Well, I'm going to vacuum real quick throw laundry in the dryer and then I'm sitting down and knitting!! Maybe I'll be back later!
Off to vacuum!!

A link??

I'm giving this one try tonight before I get too tired!!I've been trying to add links and I can not get it! How hard can it be? So read on and you'll hopefully see a working link!!
Now this should be interesting! Since I'm here I might as well write something!
had the b'day dinner last night at the Outback and it was soooo good!! The best steak I've had in quite awhile! After dinner I was so full I couldn't even stand the thought of a couple beers! We promised DD we'd go to this pub she likes~~it has every odd beer you can think of! Cherry wheat, Apricot wheat and so many more I can't remember! I hated them all~~nasty!! I mean if I'm going to drink beer just give me a plain ole draft! I know~~cheap date!! KK didn't like any of them either! They had a jazz band there and the one type of music I really don't like??? Yep, you guessed it, jazz! Well at least DD was happy we finally went.
I had an interesting post from the Boston Terrier list I'm on. Some people litter box train their Bostons. Now I thought that they were too big for that but apparently not. Living in a raised ranch makes housebreaking very difficult. The back door is downstairs and Sophie can't even start to use the stairs so guess who would be trained?? I don't know if I'm up to running up and down the stairs 3/4 times in an hour. With this damp cold weather we're having the Fibro is really acting up and it always targets my legs the worst. The last few days I just want to sit with my feet up! So I'm going to give this some thought.
I did manage to do a inch or so on the sock foot. I'd like to have these done by Wednesday just in case my ebay yarn shows up that day!
I got a nice surprise in yesterday's mail! I got RAOK'ed by
Marina with some wonderful Lavender sachets!! They smell terrific!! Course Lavender is my favorite scent!!
Speaking of it my Lavender is not showing any signs of life yet this year. I'll be really disappointed if it didn't make it through the winter.
Well, I'm done rambling so I'm going to post this and see if my links work!!
Off to post!
