Had a sale on eBay this morning...a 1 pound package of Light & Lofty yarn....a beautiful variegated boucle type...in brown tones called "Pheasant". I just love the yarn, but it causes me GREAT STRESS to crochet with the stuff. So...it found a new home...and I'm grateful it's now out of my hair!!! No temptation!!! Know what I mean??
Back to work tomorrow after 5 days off. Boy...my free time has a way of flying by!! But...I have a clean house and even managed to get most of my rock garden put "to bed" for the winter. Just a few more hours and I should have it done.
Very tired tonight...John went to the hockey game and I've had some quiet time at the computer. Actually...I've wasted a good hour playing games!!
Here's wishing you all a great week-end!! Hope the sun shines.....

Just can't seem to find the time to sit and concentrate on my blog.....that...and preoccupied with "family stuff". I'm sure you all can relate to that!!!
Anyway...let's see! We had a yard sale last Saturday...sold alot of smaller items...alot went to the thrift stores...and very little went back into the basement. But...I have a real problem now...I gave away a package of yarn...the color I now have an order for. Hmmmm...maybe I can "sweet talk" that store manager into giving me back my yarn!
Here's a picture of a WIP...one that I finally finished...and forgot to take a picture of when it was complete. Turned out "awesome". I'm now working on another special order...a "skullie" in soft yellow....which will need a green flower.
It officially fall...yesterday at 7:18 p.m. I need to finish putting my rock garden "to bed" for the winter season...or will this be another unfinished project this year?????????
Have a groovy day!!! I'm thinkin' about ya!!!

Haven't had much time to post in the last few days...John's been ill and my in-laws were here for a few days. It's been rather hectic. But...things have quieted down...and hopefully, life will be back to normal...or at least as normal as it can be for the time being.
John went to the hockey game with his buddy, Tom. I enjoy the few hours I have to myself...which are usually spent at the computer. I need to get a few things listed on eBay...as my piles are getting larger and larger, and I really do need to "weed" things out.
I made some zucchini bread...which I thought was pretty tasty. This particular recipe called for nutmeg and lemon zest...an interesting combination with the zucchini. I was able to get it all grated and in the freezer. Now I'll have some for over the holidays.
I'm working on an ear flap hat...a new pattern. An easy pattern, but I need to pay attention to what I'm doing.
Better get busy...or I'll end up in my favorite chair for a "snooze"...
Have a great evening....talk to you soon...

Here's the rolled brim hat I was telling you about...made of 100% cotton. And although I'm not a "purple person"...I do like the color combination. (I have so much yarn!!!) So...tell me...what do you think of that cute heart shaped button? Just something alittle different...gives the hat alittle bit of "spunk"!! I'll be listing it on eBay soon!! http://stores.ebay.ca/Debeeedos-New-To-You-Shop Stop by when you have the chance!!!
Worked today...once again it was very quiet. Usually is on Labor Day week-end....for some odd reason. But...the weather has been beautiful...and I imagine people are spending their holiday week-end enjoying their time outdoors....
Made baked pork chops for dinner--along with carrots and baked potatoes. It sure was tasty!! We had a coupon for "buy 1 get 1 free" at Dairy Queen---a 16 ounce Blizzard...which I needed like another hole in my head. It was soooooooo darn good...I shared with Og The Dog...
I'm beat...and would really like to sit and do "nothing" for a few minutes before bed.
Hope you're enjoying your week-end...Talk to you soon....

Back home after a long week-end in Michigan. We had an 80th birthday dinner for my Mom...and the WHOLE family was there--a first in many, many years. What a great time!!!!
Not much going on here at home. I can say...we've actually been having some great weather....sunshine...blue skies and comfortable temps. But...in the evenings it has been getting cooler...a sure sign of fall.
I finished another hat--a tam in a light denim blue. VERY nice....if I do say so myself. I'm currently working on an ear flap hat. I'll share pictures of both as soon as I get some taken!! (Why do it today...when I can put it off until tomorrow!!!) :) A wee bit of sarcasm! I'm just having a lazy day!!!
Look at this sweet little bird getting a drink out of the bird bath...bless his little heart!!!
Have a great day---I am!!!
