Happy Days All

Have you ever had those times where your just not motivated to.......

Yeah, well I'm there. Not depressed, just not motivated to do anything. Including post.

Work is beating the bejeevers out of me. I'm tired and ..... I don't know.

Anyways, Hello to all of you. I'm checking your blogs. Hopefully a sunny day here somewhere will inspire me.

I finally finished Josh's socks. Have to cast on Lissa's, got the new STR shipment to cast on, have my International Scarf Exchange 6 to cast on. Working on my first Christmas Gift for 08.
Bla bla bla......

Sending Smiling Sunshine even if I'm not feeling it.

Hello All

I apologize for being "away" for so long. Where was I you ask? No place special. Here, doing nothing. I haven't gotten my act together to post and I haven't had anything to write about. The kids have been on spring break the past week (ours was early this year).

I did recently hear from an old friend. Christopher and I have been friends since HS, Sophomore year. We've fallen out of touch the last 8 yrs or so (his wife didn't like me much). Met up with him this past week and boy did he look OLD! - I guess that means that I'm old too, huh. Anyways, it was really nice to reconnect (wife will soon be ancient history).

So that's the skinny. There is still snow on the ground, but the brown grass is starting to show through and I am hopeful that soon, soon we will see the end of white!

Sending WARM spring thoughts

P.S. Other Headline News (that I forgot to mention)

Attended a different church in the area for Easter and was very positive experience - looks like we might have found a new church home.

AND.... There is a new Yarn Store opening very very close. YIPEE - someplace to knit and find other knitters - I am SOOOOO excited!!!

Happy Days All

Wishing one an all a Happy Thrusday.

The Sun is Shinning
Its 50 degrees outside
The snow is melting
and Spring is looking more promising.

What could be better!

Pictures of new yarn you say... yes I know I promised a detailed yarn crawl account. I'm working on it. In place of pics and knitting I spring cleaned my sons room. That was enough (2 days work) to make me crabby and short on time. But its done so it should all be downhill from here right?

Happy Day All

Pay It Forward

Back in Oct-ish I signed up with Amy for "Pay It Forward". Earlier this week this wonderful present arrived

Mittlits in a very pretty pink lace. Lace is something I haven't tackled yet (read a little intimidated) and really like.

Thank You Amy!
So, I put it out there. If you would like me to send something to you and you want to pay it forward by sending something on to 3 other people, let me know. You can comment your interest here and than e-mail me at "
In other news, my Tuesday yarn crawl (before the massive snowstorm) was fantastic. Check back for details and pics.

MEME - 6 Unimportant Things

I was nominated on Trica's blog to Meme 6 unimportant things so...

  1. I am going on a yarn crawl with my GF Tiffany on Tuesday (stay tuned on that one).
  2. Tiff and I have been friends for 10 years and I still can never remember how to spell her name and usually screw it up.
  3. Lissa is now taking drivers ed. She drove for the first time - ever - with me on Thursday. Boy was that a white knuckle experience.
  4. I am a bit of a control freak. Yeah, Yeah stop laughing! - Anyways, this makes #3 even more nerve racking!
  5. I am seriously interested in moving out of MI once the kids graduate from HS - something I thought I would never, ever do.
  6. Every room in my house is in some state of redo. My DH never finishes a project. This really gets to me in Feb/March when I'm tired of looking at everything inside.

If interested tag yourself and let me know.
