  1. Good morning housemates!


    Linda, I was thinking the same thing as Marlene about you sharing a bigger place with your dd & dgs.  I enjoy living with my family but there are times I wish it was just me.  I wouldn't mind a bigger place like a mother-in-law quarters.  Praying healing for you all.


    Mary, glad you had fun this weekend.  Thinking of you and Gracie this morning.


    Cindy, enjoy your 3 days off.  Looking forward to seeing pictures of your new kitchen.


    Judy, glad you're feeling better.  I hope you fully recover soon.


    Marlene, age does not matter when it come to siblings fighting.  Jaleia Marie is 11 & Jacob Matthew is 1.  They love each other.  He thinks he's her age.  He has much personality and a temper.  He fights her when she doesn't let him have his way.  She's very protective of him.


    I took the splint off and slept with my hand elevated.  Most of the swelling went down.  I think the tightness of the splint makes it swell.  I'm getting ready to put it back on.  I'm going to wait until complete healing before I crochet.  It was very awkward when I tried.  


    Off to find me a snack.  


    Have a great day everybody!

  2. Hello housemates!


    It's cold here too and will be even colder tomorrow morning.


    My nephew is off today.  My niece had to be at work at 4 am.  She drove herself.  I didn't have to leave home.


    I got the cast off.  My hand is still broken but healing nicely.  I'm in a splint.  I have to go back in a month.  I haven't tried to crochet yet because my hand is still swollen and sore.


    Cindy, your Sophie blanket is pretty.  Congrats on the progress of your kitchen.


    Linda, glad you're on the mend.


    Marlene, congrats on your new grandbaby.


    Mary, praying all is well for little Gracie.


    Judy, you're really putting out the hats.


    Off to take a nap.


    Have a super Saturday!

  3. Good morning housemates!


    Thanks ladies!  I'm feeling somewhat better.  My left arm is aching slightly.  I think I'm still getting some swelling off and on.  I was drugged and slept most of yesterday.  Thursday can't get here fast enough.  I'm down to 2 days a week pt for my back.  I will also have to do pt for my hand.  I just want to get back to hooking.


    Cindy, your scrap Sophie sound pretty.


    Judy, I think black, white and pink will be pretty too.


    Well off I go to drop the niece and nephew off at work.


    Have a great everybody!

  4. Good afternoon housemates!


    It's gloomy and raining off and on here.


    Marlene, sorry for your friend's loss.


    Joanne, sounds like you and the boys had a good time. Did you get any hooking time?


    Mary, I can imagine how tired you are.  Our Jacob has to lay on a human body to go to sleep...thanks to his mom.


    Well back to watching the basketball game and maybe a little snoozing.  My nephew is working the 10-6:30 shift so I have a while before I have to go out.


    Enjoy your evening ladies.

  5. Good morning Judy and the rest of the housemates.


    I'm glad the snow was not too serious.Gray and pink will be pretty.  My neighbor is expecting a baby.  She stated she wants a gray and white chevron blanket.  I was thinking of doing it but adding pink since the baby is a girl.


    Just dropped my nephew off at work so I'm home bound until 3 pm.


    I'm going back to bed.


    Have a super Saturday everybody.

    Judy, your blanket is nice.  Somebody is really going to enjoy it.  Have fun reading.  I hate it when I can't speak my opinion and feel the same as you.


    Mary, the hand has some good days and some bad days.  This cast is driving me crazy.  I pray that next Thursday's xray shows a healed hand.  Otherwise, it will be another cast.


    Marlene, you seem to be having lots fun.  I like reading about your adventures.


    Joanne, I saw your knitted blanket on FB.  You did a great job!


    Cindy, I hope you enjoyed your two days off.


    Linda, Enjoy your quiet weekend.  Get some rest!


    Donna & Jill, I hope all is well.


    Well, let me get ready for pt.  


    Enjoy the rest of this afternoon.

  7. Good morning housemates!


    I did get on yesterday afternoon but lost the post as I was in a hurry.  I had to pick up my niece.  I didn't get a chance to get back on.


    I dropped her off about an hour ago.Hopefully she'll get off earlier today.  I was about to go back to bed but Jacob woke up.


    I'll have to catch up on posts later...nanny duties call.


    It's raining here and turning cold again.


    Have a good day all.

  8. Good morning housemates!


    Just dropped off my dnie & dnep at work.  I love the days they go in at the same time.


    We have rain here through tomorrow.  Temp is a little cooler 50 degrees but going back up in the 70s over the weekend.


    I was up and down using the potty...gotta stop drinking water earlier.  I don't know if I can do it 3 hrs as suggested by Dr.Oz.


    Donna - I'm glad your sister's report was good.  Yes, I've heard of Rome.  My sister had cervical cancer and could not take chemo because she has only 1 kidney.  I don't know if she's cured or just in remission.  It was hard during the time she was sick but she's been well for about 10 years.  Continuously lifting your sister in prayer.


    Well, Jacob Matthew is stirring so I'd better go and check on him.


    Have a great day all.

  9. Jill - thanks...in what part of Alabama are you located?


    Joanne - yes, I was able to crochet but it was awkward because of the piece between my thumb and fore finger.  I can't grip the blanket as tight as I need to.


    Judy - sweet of you to help your neighbor.


    I've sat here and snoozed on the sofa so now I guess I'll go to bed.


    Good night all.

  10. Thanks for the compliments.  


    Linda - glad your gs is settling down.  We have warm temps but no sun.


    NO surgery!  Pinkie and the gang are free just below the knuckles.  Hopefully, cast will come off in 2 weeks and start pt.


    Going to visit my neighbor...will try to crochet when I get back.

    Thanks for the welcome back and well wishes for the hand.


    Cindy - I hope you feel better soon.


    Judy - Looking forward to seeing your ATW.  We're having nice weather here.


    Donna - The dress is lovely.  I know where Mableton is but I've never heard of Summerville.  Lifting you and your family in prayer.


    Marlene - I've made 4 of the heart blankets.  I've started on another Alabama houndstooth afghan.  I've also made 3 ponchos, scarves and hats.  I'll try to upload the ponchos.  The blankets are on my niece's phone.


    Off to the Ortho.


    Have a good day all.

  12. Hello Housemates!


    I'm back.   :yay


    Obviously, there's too much to catch up on.  I did read a couple of pages back.


    Judy - your hats and blanket are beautiful.  I love your purple and greens!


    Joanne - I hope you had a restful night.


    Cindy - Sorry about the fire.  Looking forward to pictures of your new kitchen.


    Marlene - How sweet of you to let your friend have the afghan.


    Linda - I hope things get better for your gs.


    Donna - you have a nice family.  I'm the prodigal sister today.  I've been off the 'Ville for a while.  I live in Georgia (Sandy Springs) as well.  In what part of Georgia do you live?  I live with one of my three sisters and her off spring.  Our two youngest sisters live in Alabama.  I'm a BAMA girl living in Georgia.  I love the Crimson Tide.  It's nice meeting you and I plan to be around more.


    I think the last time I was in here I'd just been in a car accident and was looking for a vehicle.  Well, I bought a van and had no car payment which was good since I'm not working.  Well, a month ago, I was in another accident (thankful neither was my fault).  I'm nursing a broken left hand.  I see the Ortho on tomorrow to see if surgery is necessary because the bone twisted when it broke.  I'm having crochet withdrawals because the cast had to extend out to my pinkie and ring finger.  I need the pinkie to hold my yarn.  My nephew suffered a broken left hand as well in a different area and not as severe.  All of his fingers are free.  Last visit to the Ortho, I chanted "free pinkie."


    Last November, Jacob turned a year old.  He is a real boy.  Let me say this, I can't imagine the terrible twos being any worse.  Jaleia Marie was 11 years old last November.  She is a tall one 5'3".  Her dad is 6'5".  They are growing up so fast.


    Well enough about me.  I'm just glad to be back.


    I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! :ghug

  13. Good morning housemates,


    Praying for Tam, Holly and their families at this time.


    I'm working on 4 "Heartwarming" afghans.  They're for teachers.  I'm also helping with my niece's new baby.  She went back to work almost 2 weeks ago.  My sister's nerves are shot so I try to take care of him as much as possible when DN is at work.  I think my sister has had a mild stroke but won't go to the doctor.


    Well, I've dropped everyone off starting with my DN at 4 am, given Jacob a bottle and he's asleep.  I'm going to lay down a bit before his next feeding.


    Hope everyone has a great day!

  14. Good morning housemates!


    I haven't been on in a few days.  I've been at it early looking for a vehicle.  I haven't felt the best either.  However, I had to do what I had to do...rental fees on the car are adding.


    Yippee...found a nice van yesterday afternoon.  The entire family can sit comfortably now.  I'll take the rental back today.  Now that I have a little extra money...I can purchase some yarn. 


    Judy, I love all three of your baby ghans.  They are beautiful.


    Hope all is well with everyone else.  Errands today and then hopefully, I can settle down now and check in everyday.

  15. Good afternoon housemates!


    I was up earlier using the bathroom but went back to bed.  I'm just getting up.


    Brrr...it's 25 degrees here.


    Read post but didn't take notes...will try!


    Joanne - glad you don't have to go out...enjoy!


    Sherry - beautiful ghans...boys look happy!


    Linda - glad you're getting to keep your job until you move.


    Mary - glad DH is doing okay.


    Judy - I can imagine Lucy and Sparkie in the snow.  Nice picture.


    Cindy - enjoy your time in Canada, sorry you had to go to work in this weather.


    Holly - enjoy your time off as well and stay warm.


    Marlene - It's down right hot in Texas compared to the East coast.  Enjoy your ladies' night.


    Tam - Praying safe travels for you and the fam.


    Marisa - hope all is well with you.


    Off I go...BBL!

  16. Good afternoon housemates!


    Mary - sounds like you and I have the same job.  I spent most of yesterday in the car.  I've just gotten home from today's early start.  I have to pick up my nephew in about 15 minutes.  However, I'll not have to go back out today.  I hope you get a chance to get in some crocheting time.


    I found the perfect car...only to find out that someone was inside signing the papers for it.  Oh well!  Back to the drawing board.


    My sister outdid herself on the grilling.  She grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, sausages, pork chops, ribs. wingettes and Boston butt.  We have enough food to last 2 weeks or more. 


    Tam - your "Drop in the Pond" ghan is beautiful.  I have that on my "to do" list.  I hope you find a job that makes you happy.


    Judy - wow, a trip to France.  I'm so happy for you!  Will DH be able to handle Lucy while you're gone?


    Joanne - 7 weeks...good for you.  Glad you were able to get caught up at work and leave on time as well.


    Marlene - so sorry you had a bad experience on your way to Texas.  Enjoy your party tonight.


    Sherry - hope all is well with Ms. Snuggles' surgery today.  Glad you had a chance to be off today.


    Linda - looking forward to seeing pictures of your shawl.  I think we're getting more rain after tomorrow.


    Cindy - WTG on your shopping.


    Well, I'm off to get ready to pick up my nephew.  I'll spend the rest of the afternoon/evening hooking.


    HAPPY NEW YEAR HOUSEMATES!!!!  :mdust  :party :party :party  :mdust

  17. Good morning housemates!


    Just dropped the Nephew off at work. 


    I still haven't found a car yet.


    Lots to do today.  We're meeting my youngest sister half way (Anniston) to pick up some grilling she did on yesterday.  We love to grill and when we lived in Bama, we grilled year round.  Georgia has a law that you're not allowed to grill on your patio in an apartment building.  Little sis grilled so she took care of us too.


    I'm suppose to turn the car in this evening but I think I'm going to extend it one more week.


    Sherry - praying for little Missy.


    Joanne - glad that you had some time with dd.


    Have a good day everyone!!

  18. Good morning housemates!


    Tam - lifting Michael in prayer.  I agree with you on communicating through crochet.  Nothing speaks louder than the time and love we put into making string into something beautiful.


    Joanne - you sound so happy with the quality time you're getting to spend with your family.  I'm so happy and you're so deserving with all the hours you've put in at work this last year or two.


    Linda - I hope you're relieved of your pain soon.  I have problems with my right leg hurting from time to time so I understand your pain.  I hope you have a great day at work and enjoy your 4 days off.  How is Rosie and John?


    Judy - I know your walk will never be brisk if Lucy is involved.  How are they doing?  Did Sparky's ear finally clear up?  I love your personalize crochet projects.


    Mary, Marisa, Cindy & Sherry...thinking of you ladies.


    Off to look at cars and do some hooking.

  19. Good morning housemates!


    Joanne - I haven't found the car yet.  Still looking.  It's so good to know that you're getting to spend time with your girls.


    Tam - Thanks you in advance.  Florida sounds so good at this time.


    Have a great day everybody!
