  1. Good morning! I'm so happy to hear that our Florida residents are ok! Hurricanes are so scary, and when I hear evacuation, I really feel for those folks! It finally speed raining here two days ago, thank goodness! It's becoming crisp and cool outside, which is what we call "hoodie weather" I adore my hoodie sweatshirts! The leaves aren't really turning so quickly this year, I love fall foliage so I guess maybe it'll start next week and I can take the kids driving to see the gorgeous colors. I've been so busy studying and reading, I've realized I need stronger reading glasses. I think my entire body is saying "uncle". It's ready to just give in to my next chapter of aging. So I'm making an appointment at the eye doctor so I can get glasses that won't give me a headache. I've been trying to knock out a few more scarves before this weekends craft fair. I hope to be able to have a nice selection available. Today I have to take a break though, my youngest son needs a Halloween costume, so well take care of that business early. I hope everyone has a wonderful dayou! Rosie
  2. It really did creep up on me when I wasn't looking! Aches and pains, stiffness, and not sleeping well. Oh, and let's not even talk about hot flashes! I routinely combust a few times an hour! Tonight I'm on call, so I won't sleep well again from "pager anxiety" it's lucky I only have 2 nights this week! Well, I'm off to fix dinner for the kids, then an executive board meeting which is boring as all get out (maybe I can sleep in there!) After that I really need to do laundry, why is it so difficult to get the clothes from the washer to the dryer? Ugh! Have a great evening!
  3. Good morning! Sounds like you all have really busy lives! Busy is good! It's almost 430 in the morning and I can't sleep any more. It's infuriating, I wonder, as I approach 50, if this is going to get worse as I get older. Eventually maybe I won't sleep at all and I'll just wander around all night. I went back to school, starting two weeks ago for my EMT-CC, it's a paramedic but without the electives to make it a degree. For two weeks we've been learning about legal stuff and wellness. So, I've learned that I should always do my best, and eat vegetables. Oh, and never talk about patients. Next week we start Anatomy and Physiology, so finally something interesting. I'm looking forward to it. My kids a have a few days off from school, so happy new year to our Jewish friend and family. I've begun making "road trip " scarves. They're easy and come out really cute. I'm doing a craft fair in 2 weeks so I should have some items to put up, besides the regular scarves, hats, and baby blankets. It's a little chilly here today, I just hope the clouds go away, is been gloomy for 3 days now, and my mood would be better with some sun. I hope everyone in the south is safe from hurricane Matthew! Take care!
  4. Good morning! I'm battening down the hatches in prep for the tropical storm were supposed to get. You never realize how many things that you keep outside can become airborne with high winds! My kids start school in 2 days, but if we lose power, as we so often do, they won't be starting anything until the power comes back. They're hoping for another week off! I've almost finished a baby afghan a friend of mine commissioned for her new grandson. It came out pretty nice, I'm just unsure how much to ask from her. It was alot of work. Is $100 too much? Snowbear, I do things from pictures all the time, sometimes with great success, and sometimes, well, let's not focus on my failures. I hope you get some rest! Anyway, I hope everyone is enjoying their stay to September, and have a great day!
  5. Good morning! The weather has been so humid and oppressive, that my house is damp even with the air going, so I haven't done much hook work-my yarn and hands feel sticky! The humidity has taken a tool on many seniors around here, so work has been busy and we've been running ragged with the ambulance. Today is cleaning day, and I'm starting to get the kids ready for the start of school in a week and a half. Have a wonderful day!
  6. The pink and green combo makes my eyes happy! So nice and bright!
  7. They're amazing! I love "proud mama" projects!
  8. I love it! I'm considering making one for my daughter. Amazing with the color contrast!
  9. Omgosh! They're gorgeous! You have such a big heart to do such wonderful work for others. I am a hoarder of yarn as well, I wish I had the time to make such things from my stash!
