Scarf For Vanessa

Did I show you the scarf I made for my grand-daughter Vanessa?? I used Lion Brand bulky...and what a lovely yarn to work with!!! Pretty, don't you think??

Had a busy day. Managed to clean the upstairs...including my craft room. (It's always fun to "play" in there!!) The closet shelves still need some attention, but I'll save that chore for next week.

Had baked chicken, rice and stewed tomatoes for dinner. Enough chicken left for another meal!! Sure was tasty...if I do say so myself!!

Plans for tomorrow are to dust and vacuum the main floor. After that, I hope to spend the afternoon crocheting. I'm working on a "scrap-happy" dish cloth...a good way to use up those odds and ends of cotton yarn!!

A Quick Hell-o....

I'm on my way to bed...and should have been there an hour ago. No reason...except I'm tired and have a "do list" a mile high for the morning. I really want to get some house work done so I can sit and crochet for a few hours.

Nothing "earth-shattering" going on around here. I worked the week-end and picked up several extra hours last week. Terribly slow...

Made macaroni and cheese for dinner...an old family recipe. It certainly hit the spot. I THINK it's baked chicken tomorrow night for dinner. Haven't really decided. I have all day to think about it, right??

Check out the patient. He's healing nicely...So glad he's still with us!!!

Sweet Dreams!

The Patient....

Og The Dog...aka "The Patient". Poor little boy is doing amazingly well after his surgery. It's been 10 days since he went under the knife...and it's becoming harder and harder to keep him "still". It's difficult trying to keep him from doing the thinks he enjoys most...chase the cats...jump on the bed...etc. We're doing just fine....it will all be over with before we know it!!!

Nothing much going on around here. I managed to start crocheting a dish cloth...didn't care for the color combination much, so "frogged" it out. Will work on it again tonight.

Have picked up a few extra hours at work, and I'm glad this week is just about over with. VERY quiet...and although there's always something to do...I get bored extremely easy. Need I say more??

I'll leave you with that...enjoy your evening.

Busy Week-end

We're back from our trip to Michigan...have picked Oggie up from the vet...and life is about as normal as it gets right now.

Since Og The Dog has had his surgery, we have to watch him closely...no running, no steps, no jumping...etc. He must be feeling better, as he's starting to get rambunctious!! It's going to be a long 6-8 weeks...but...we'll make it through this!!! He has his stitches out tomorrow...so that will be one less thing to worry about!!

Trip to Michigan was AWESOME...need I say more?? My grand-daughters are growing so fast and are so well behaved. I'm really proud of them. When I get pictures off the camera, I'll share a few with you.

Crocheting?? Nope....and I'm starting to have withdrawals. I made a few bath puffs before Christmas and gave one to each of my daughter-in-laws. They're made out of 100% cotton yarn...so the more you use them, the softer they get. Hope they enjoy them!!

Well, better get some laundry done and do abit of house work. Never-ending job!!!

Have a great day!!!

I haven't been doing too much crocheting since Christmas...but did manage to knit a striped scarf for my #2 Grand-daughter, Vanessa, for Christmas. I'm in the middle of blocking it now, so I'll share it later. In the meantime, here's one I made for the craft show. Unfortunately, it didn't sell, but there's always next year.

I have a nasty head cold...took the day off work. Unusual for me!! I felt so bad yesterday and this morning, it even hurt to put on my glasses. Hopefully, this will pass in a big hurry, as I'd really hate for my grand-daughters to catch this. We're heading down for a visit on Sunday...so, if I'm not feeling much better, I'm sure our trip will be cancelled. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Think I'll go see what I can come up with for lunch...have a great Friday!!!

Time sure has a way of slipping by the way-side, doesn't it??? Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday season. Personally speaking, I'm glad it's over and done with. Well....almost. We still have to go to the States and visit my 2 boys and their families...leaving Sunday. I'm actually looking forward to this part of it.

Other than the hustle and bustle of the holidays...our Oggie Dog has been under the weather. He needs surgery on his left, back leg...something about the knee and torn ligaments. Doesn't sound good...but the results are positive. We debated about what to do...but there really wasn't much of a question. His heart is healthy...body functions are great...and he doesn't have cancer or any life threatening disease. He's such a joy!! It's going to take some time..but he's worth it!!!

I have a nasty cold .... I tried to take a nap, but the phone rang. Guess I better finish packing up the boys' gifts.

Let's see if I can get back on track...talk to ya later.
