  1. Happy Thursday House! I didn't realize that I haven't stopped through since before Thanksgiving. Ours was nice and pretty relaxing, as our family gatherings usually are. A lot of food, drinks, and laughs...what more can one ask for. We got our decorations up on the weekend and still have a couple things to finish up. We have a lawn inflatable to get out and it's finally not precipitating at all, so hopefully we'll get it out this weekend (we picked it up at the end of last year on sale ). And, a couple stars for the front windows that I picked up extension cords for yesterday. But other than that, we're all ready! I hope you all have a wonderful day and I hope to 'see' you all tomorrow!
  2. Judy - Gorgeous graph lapghan! I'm pretty sure it was you that offered me much advice on my first graphghan....and I love doing them Seeing the image form is just so satisfying! Diana - I love your variegated on the c2c! Sorry I've been MIA for a bit. Troy had to fix my computer due to crappy Windows 10! So, I've been filling in with my laptop and I just don't enjoy doing things on that so only kept up with what was necessary....meaning work. lol I started the last large wedge of my stained glass afghan It's coming along, slow but sure. I think I shared a pic of the golf club covers and golf towel I made Troy, but haven't started my own set yet. That's about it for now. I do have to add a baby blanket into the mix, my brother is having a girl in January. It's not much concern to me to really be 'on time' with it, so no hard deadline LOL.
  3. Good afternoon! Just popping in to say hi. Not too much going on here right now, which is nice I hope everyone feels better quickly! I agree about Windows 10....it's annoyingly insufficient Troy has to fix mine and my dad's every time there's an update Have a great hump day everyone
  4. Hi housemates, Our township moved trick or treat to tomorrow night. The city of Pittsburgh kept theirs last night, so my mom went over to my sisters to enjoy the kiddos. She'll come to our house tomorrow night, lol. They were calling for flash flooding in some areas, which is what prompted the change...in terms of safety. Otherwise, not much going on here. I hope everyone had a great week and that the weekend is even better!
  5. Good morning ladies. This whole week has just flown past! I'm really not sure where the time went! My neighborhood is having their little halloween parade this afternoon so I hope the rain holds out for them. I finished Troy's golf club covers and am now working on a towel to match his bag as well. Cindy - Glad to hear your mojo is back and you're feeling better. Enjoy your vacation. I love the stockings! They are super cute. So sad to hear about all those homes and the vulnerability the weather has created Mona - Enjoy the Harvest Fest today. Sounds like you are on top of your holiday WIP's Judy - I am using the same variegated that the pattern used. When I made the headband, I made it for a mother and toddler...it was really easy to make the 2 different sizes they needed Have a great weekend
  6. Good morning ladies! The week went quickly again! I have the PA Chiropractic Association's convention this weekend, so it'll be a quick weekend as well. But, I'll get the rest of the CE credits needed for the next license renewal Mona - Did you get your paperwork finished up before you had the grand's? Judy - Great that you GD already has an idea...that's so helpful sometimes! I found a golf club cover pattern that I am using as a guide, but doing a little differently I am using this pattern for the stained glass afghan.... https://www.yarnspirations.com/red-heart-stained-glass-afghan/RHC0502-025417M.html I've made this headband in two different size before that you might be able to work with... http://knots-thoughts.blogspot.com/2012/12/crochet-turban-headband-free-pattern.html
  7. Good afternoon ladies, Cindy - I hope you're feeling better by now! Brenda - The whole move sounds stressful to me! Sounds like you are doing well with it though Not too much going on around here, which is a good thing I need to make some golf club covers for dh. He has an outing next Thursday for work and conveniently has a set of golf clubs that my uncle gave him. (My uncle actually makes them). We got bags this past weekend (just because mine was 20 years old and needed to be replaced and he didn't have one). We still have to get him some shoes. I know many courses don't care if you were regular sneakers, but I don't know where he's going. I'm off to find a pattern to use Catch you all later in the week.
  8. Good morning!....Well, Afternoon now! lol Judy - gorgeous ghan! I love the colors Mary - I am currently working on a Stained Glass Window Afghan. My goal this year was to only finish WIP's...with the exception of things like baby gifts. I finished 1 or 2 others (plus a baby ghan) and have been working on this one for a while. It's all sc, which I think is why it's been sitting. When I looked on Ravelry...I bought the yarn for this in 2010! Yikes! My yarn night got cancelled the other since one of the girls had a migraine So, we just decided to reschedule until we're all available. And...that's about it. It should be a low key weekend! Super excited about that
  9. Good morning peeps I had a busy start to my work week, which is a good problem for me to have. lol Mary - Yes, Troy is primarily working from home and then going out for meetings and networking events. He has some kind of event today that is ALL day! He had to be at the convention center around 6:30am and will be there until about 8 tonight! That type of event is not the norm luckily. There was a meet and greet event last night at Heinz Field in relation to today's event. He got a tour of the facility and got to see all the locker rooms, he was a happy camper...and they got a Terrible Towel. lol Mona - I'm tired just hearing about your week! We had some family around for the weekend, so things were a bit busy here as well. But, not terrible. Tonight I'm meeting my girlfriends for 'yarn night' And going for a haircut during the day with my mom. Light day on tap, which will be nice. It'll give me time to catch up on some of the paperwork from the last 2 days! I hope you all have a great hump day
  10. Good morning ladies, Diana - My parents got a metal roof about 2 years ago and love it. They had it done by an Amish company and it looks great! Definitely a great way to go Mona - Enjoy your leftovers and give your shoulder a little TLC We've been in the 80's all week with ridiculous humidity...the kind that takes your breath away as soon as you open the door However, it is beautiful today with a high of the low to mid 60's for us! My perfect temp Have a great weekend everyone!
  11. Good morning house! Brenda - It sounds like things are coming along. It is quite a process to get settled! Just keep taking one thing at a time so you don't overwhelm yourself too much Cindy - My parents always say "I don't know how people get bored" They are busier now that they're retired than they were while they were working! My dad jokes that he needs to go back to work just to get a vacation! LOL Mona - I hope today is more relaxing for you! Judy - We are hot and humid today too But, I think it should start to cool down again on the weekend! Troy is loving his new job, but it's only his 3rd day....we'll see how he feels next month. It is definitely a change of pace for him, but I think it's going to be a great fit for him once he's settled and past all the onboarding and HR stuff that he has to take care of this week. As for me, all's well...not much to report on myself! lol
  12. Good morning house! This busy weekend is over! My older niece did not have to dance with her ex at the homecoming dance! Yay! And, my younger niece has a great time at her party Yesterday was a bit of a 'chill' day...or doing some things around the house We went out last night to see Sebastian Bach and he was great...hasn't lost his vocals. He has quite a silly personality too, which was fun. Troy has to conference calls today and one meeting. So, not too bad for a first day. One of the calls is an orientation call. The other was really just a sit in and listen call with his partner to get a feel for things. Have a great Monday!
  13. Good morning housemates! Another busy week! Troy ended up off this week and is starting his new job next week now. He is excited and nervous, but I know he'll be great! Monday he has orientation, which will be remotely from home. The convenience of working in the tech field! Last night was our high schools homecoming game and my niece was nominated, so we went to that. She got first runner up and was super excited since she didn't expect it at all. Our school does it really strangely...there were 55 nominees!!! Basically, they have 1 person to represent each club/sport/group and that person has to be on the board of that organization in order to be eligible. Kind of nice that it's not just the always popular kids that get everything....but, 55 is also kinda crazy! However, our Averie is Senior Class President. Tonight is their dance, and I guess that's when they'll announce the guys. She'll have to dance with the first runner up guy and she fears that it is going to be her ex-boyfriend! Fingers crossed that it's not, but she is a great person both inside and out so I know she'll be mature about it if it happens....and honestly, I think he would be as well. Just awkward for them is all. Today is another niece's 10th birthday party. We have to stop at WalMart on our way to pick her up a gift....nothing like last minute! Last weekend when I saw them, we got no direction on a gift. The invite included information about donation to a college fund set up for her in lieu of a gift. BUT, you can't show up to a 10 year old's birthday party without bringing something to open!!!! Ugh! Anyways, they were out this week shopping and she saw something she wanted and my sister in law wouldn't get it for her then text me a picture. lol We don't have a convenient WalMart, so on the way to the party it is! Not much for tomorrow, but in the evening we are going to a local club to see Sebastian Bach play. He was the lead singer for Skid Row. We are 80's rock people. lol I guess that about covers it! I hope everyone has wonderful weekend!
  14. Hello House! It's been busy. We had the pig roast at my parents house on Saturday and the last of the house guests headed out this morning after breakfast. I've been at the office since and Troy is home doing some housework. He has the week off and begins his new job next week! That pretty much consumed my life since the end of last week! lol Judy - Gorgeous ghan and I'm with Cindy...those ends look like a nightmare! My least favorite part of crocheting! Brenda - Sounds like you're getting settled finally
