    granny squares for those that need them jan 2018

    For a while now, if I buy something to bring in, I get rid of either one or two things to cover it. It's not been an easy journey but I want to be able to see my stuff and right now, I have so much packed away that I can't see because I have too much. I'm hoping this is a journey that goes well. I'm going to work on a bit more tomorrow as I'm finished up my 4th 12 hour shift at work tonight. We also need to put on Mr Tribbles brush guard for the truck among a couple of other things. Have a great night all.

    Checking in, schoolwork has been keeping me kinda busy along with other odds and ends. Finally got my bloodwork done and the doctor is increasing my thyroid medicine. Explains a little bit of the tiredness I've been having lately. My Gyn wants me to try a new diet that I am not sure about. I'm not supposed to have any aspartame (i love me some diet soda pop), canned or processed meats, most fruits, no yogurt, sour cream, aged cheese or chocolate, no alcoholic beverages, no caffeine etc.... I'm not doing to well on it so far... lol, I just don't think I can give up caffeine especially! Its to see if it helps with my interstitial cystitis. We lost another puppy, and it was so sudden. He was only 3 years old. The only thing that I can figure out is it was bloat (twisted stomach). I have never dealt with bloat before and I didn't recognize the symptoms he displayed. I thought he had eaten something that didn't agree with his belly. He was sick one day an passed during that night. Bloat is the only thing I have found that can kill a dog that fast. He was one of the special ones, we still miss him and it's been almost a month. Little tribble was pretty sad today and kept saying how much he missed Falkor. He was an awesome dog and I don't know if we will ever fully recover... Great hats Katy, I love every one of them. Mary Jo, that Harvest blessing angel is really sweet! so pretty... funnymom8, I always go to thrift stores looking for this kind of goodies and never find anything like this, lol!! Awesome find. :hug: ImmaFreek, sorry to hear about your troubles, I hope things get better soon! Money troubles are terrible. We've had to survive on 20$ groceries for the week. Not an easy task. Luckily Little Tribble didn't eat much other than peanut butter and jelly during those times and a pack of generic hot dogs are 1$ as are generic buns. Lots of baked potatoes as well... lol bgs, I really adore lovies but havn't made any of them yet. That one is adorable. Katy - LOL that poor scratching post! Maxie is beautiful he looks a big like our Big Mac who we call Mackie. I can't seem to find a picture of him. bgs, glad the eye surgery went well! I'm too much of a chicken to have surgery on my eyes. I finally got the squares all you lovely ladies sent my way put together in my friendship quilt. I love it, oh and my helper about halfway through. I still need to weave in some ends, but I think it's perfect!

    Oh my gosh, trolls were my thing when I was growing up. When I first started searching for one, you couldn't get them anywhere. I wanted one so bad and finally found one at a local dollar store type store. I can't remember how much he was but I believe he is a wishnik and he came with a plastic guitar and a red and black shirt. I was obsesses with elvis and so the troll ended up named Elvis. I still have him, he is one of my prized possessions. A few years later the Russ trolls came out and I think I had almost every one they made. Never any that I liked as much as I liked Elvis but they were fun to collect when I was a kid. Trolls are the best! This is hilarious!!! Oh no! I don't understand why this is such a thing now! I think a lot of it has to do with the way they are being raised. They grow up thinking they can do anything and not have to suffer the consequences. They also think that there are no disappointments in life (for example getting a trophy even if they lose a game, etc.) , so they have no idea of how to handle disappointment. Then we see this pop up. When Little Tribble was in Kindergarten we were called on two separate occasions because they had bomb threats at the elementary school. It is everywhere. I've been working on the squares you all have sent me since I joined the forum. They are looking pretty. I'm trying to make a cloak/cape type thing instead of a blanket. Once it's finished I will share pictures. Then on to another project I have started. Have a good night all.

    Oh my Katy! That was a close one. I didn't do anything when I was growing up. I didn't have many friends and the ones I did have wasn't in town so we couldn't hang out except when we went to church or if we spent the night at each others house and we weren't allowed going out and about without an adult. I was never one to break the rules so I didn't leave where I was told, LOL - I've always been a bit boring.

    We still have a Kmart but I've heard that it's going out of business. Of course that one is about a 45 minute drive from where we live. I remember going shopping with my grandparents and parents every saturday. We would go to Washington Court House (it's about a 20 minute drive from here) and go to K-mart, Murphy's and Big Bear. None of those stores are there anymore. There is a TSC in the Murphy's building and Pat Cataan's in the old K-mart building.

    Hello!!! Time got away from me. I don't seem to have a chance to turn around. Anyway I'm checking in and will try to read all the posts I have missed. Little Tribble goes back to school on the 16th. I am not ready, he hates mornings and so do I. Work is the same. Classes are going fine. Havnt had time to do any crochet, thinking of beginning to join all my squares from this lovely group so I have my own blanket. I have been using the one I made for Mr Tribble. Anyway have an awesome day crochet buddies!!

    Hello all! It's been very hot here as well! But, I am not complaining cause I really hate winter. I hate the cold, I hate having to wear a coat, I hate the frost on the windows, etc. I've been so happy that it's warm. Now if we could just have a few days with no rain so I can get into the dog pen and get it cleaned out! bgs that is a lovely lapghan and cute cute stocking. Mary Jo I really love those green placemats. Green is my favorite color. Mowed the grass in flip flops on Sunday, my feet are still green and not a pretty green either LOL. Drinking coffee (yuck, I hate coffee) because I am at work and freezing and sleepy! It is very cold in this little room here, I even have a heater on under my desk. have a great night all!

    Such cute babies Mary Jo! I love looking at your crocheted clothes. I have to try this out one of these days. I've been busy doing other things, I really want to get back to my crochet. Hope everyone is doing great! Just been busy here. Mr Tribble tried putting up a pool, but we are going to have to move it as the ground is a lot more unlevel that we had thought so half of our water leaked out. School is going good, on the third class. It's been pretty easy so far. I'm sure that will change once I have to go sit for the registry test. LOL. Little Tribble, duck and dogs are all doing great. Garden is in and coming up good. Been storming and raining so much that I don't know when we are going to get back out into the outside dog run. It's a nasty mess out there, even with the straw. Mr Tribble bought me a new comic book and I am so excied to read it that I can't bring myself to start it... lol Little Tribble is very happy to be out of school. He is playing baseball this season but we've had more cancellations than not. Have a great night all...

    Hi all, Sorry I've been gone so long. Summer seems more busy than the other months what with trying to keep up with the yard work and all. Little Tribbles party went well, so much better than last year. The only thing I am going to change for next year is that I am not doing the cupcakes or cakes! I have had it with fighting with the icing. It's ridiculous. The pictures on on an actual camera and I haven't uploaded them yet. I have projects going on to finish but haven't had time to work on any of them. I want to finish what I have started so I can start on another graphghan... School is going well, this week is the last week of my 2nd class. Doing good so far. Diet is going okay as well, I've lost 41 pounds but have a lot more I want to lose. Hot water heater started leaking and Mr Tribble had to change out a hose on it, all fixed now. We had to buy pipe wrenches as we didn't have the one he needed. LittleTribble is very happy to be out of school and I'm happy I don't have to get up so early to take him. We got our fishing license today and I believe there is a fishing derby we're going to this weekend. Little Tribble is excited for this. Since he lost his last tooth, he has decided he wants to make a miniature house for the tooth fairy to live in. I tried telling him that she was too busy to stay at just one place, not sure if he believed me or not. Have a great night all!!
