Good Afternoon everyone. I received a few more squares in the mail yesterday and today. today they were from cshort 4 that will add a nice punch of color. and a couple from someone that I am not sure of, my DH tossed the envelope before i realized I didnt note who they were from. I snapped a picture of them but have to wait for DH to be home so I can use his camera cord.

I hope everyone is feeling better, my allergies have been going crazy since we have had nothing but rain for 2-3 days.

I did get great news this week my son in law finally got his release date from the marines, so they are moving home with my grandson in a month. I can't wait havent seen him since christmas. although now i have to get moving on cleaning and painting their house before they get back so everything is set for them.

well gotta get ready for work tonight and tomorrow.

oh and Kuddles not sure if you saw this picture, these are the squares I won from you with ben wrapped like a burrito

Hi laurie! Good to hear from you, sometimes life gets in the way of stuff we really WANT to do, with stuff that we really have to do, huh!! Hope you find time to join us more often!!    take care!

Hello All!!

 

I am late in this THANK YOU because I wasn't sure where it came from.  I would officially like to thank  AbbyNormal for the two pretty squares she sent me a while back.  I am still collecting squares but have not put any together yet....haven't quite decided how I want to do that.  I am a lurker here.  Congrats on all the babies.  I hope those of you who are sick get better soon.

Slow but steady.  I'm glad you are regaining strength.  You'll have lots of energy when you're ready to crochet again :)

Oh,I feel ya there!  come  to find out what I have been going through for the last two days isn't a cold, but it is POLLEN!!! Ugh!  I have been coughing/sneezing so hard, that my ribs hurt!  This is the second day for that, and I think my voice is coming back a little more than yesterday!  Unfortunately I bought allergy medicine yesterday that makes you drowsy, so it was a struggle staying awake and then going home in the dark last night!  Still working lots of overtime, looks like I might be Tuesday, which is the end of the pay period for us.  Getting real excited, this drive is getting OLD! LOL

 

Since I haven't been feeling well, I haven't done any more squares, so gonna work on some today.  I should have another one, if not two, by the time lunch is done with.  Is there anyone who likes varigated?  I only have that with me today.

 

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

I LOVE varigated!!

It's great hearing from you! Glad to hear you're doing better. Hope the speedy recovery continues. Healing and happy thoughts coming your way! :hug s for you!

 

 

Well, I'm feeling a little better today. Tummy scar is still hurting, but it has felt much worse. LOL! We did some running today, and have a little more tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be warmer...it was in the low 40's today and windy! Not to mention the wind chill...grrr! Yesterday we had storms real bad on and off all day. Somewhere around here a tornado had landed, but I didn't even know about it until my mom called me! Didn't hear any sirens or anything!

 

 

I hope everyone who has been sick is on the mend! I'll talk to you all later! Super :hug s for everyone!     P.S. I'm going to try and pick up my hook tomorrow! First time since before the surgery! :lol I wonder how much of my little guys blanket I'll b abke to get finished tomorrow?! ;)

Get some rest and get to feeling better! It's so hard working in an office (I'm in a VERY crowded, rows of cubicles type of office) and when one person is sick, it spreads like wildfire! Home is where you need to be! :hug

I agree!  STay home and get the much needed rest your body needs Kuddles! 

 

I know what it is like to be in an office where everyone is practically sitting in each other's laps and someone gets sick.  Luckily, beside what I thought was a cold but was actually allergies, I haven't gotten sick all winter, but everyone else here has numerous times!!!  I can't say it is because I have been taking care of myself or eating right, all I can say is God has kept me well!!!!  When I lived up north, though, I got bronchitis ALL THE TIME!!!  I heard one girl complain that she didn't understand why people came to work when they were sick.  I turned to her and said, some people can't afford to take time off all the time or have their parents pay for their bills if they get behind!  I couldn't help myself!!!  Besides, a lot of times when we get sick, even when we feel better, the cough sticks around for a while and it makes you sound like you are still sick when in fact you aren't anymore!!!  The contagiousness has passed!    Here's is prayers that everyone that is sick gets well, that all who have aches and pains, have had surgeries and babies gets back to being healed internally and externally!!!

 

Everyone have a blessed day on today!!!!

Thanks Mandy and Lisa! I work in a trailer! I work in a spec ed coop and when they ran out of room they got a trailer. My boss and I share it with another dept! It was a used trailer so who knows what germs lurk!

 

Oh well, I'm home, drinking coffee and eating a yogurt. I just wish the pressure behind my eyes would abate!

 

Hugs to you all!

I live in one, probably not near like what you are working in.  Mine was new after Katrina hit down here - thankfully it is not one of the FIMA trailers, it is actually a nice one!  I live in the country so it is very nice and quiet.  I am surprised at how many down here live in trailers!  Where I am at, you see more trailers than you do actual homes!!!

I've lived in a trailer before and many are much nicer than single family homes! I'd have no problem living in one....at least I'd know I'd keep it clean!

Hi, everyone! Good morning from L.A. It's Day 2 of the yarn crawl. I'm off to Alamitos Bay Yarn Company to check out the one-of-a-kind Yarn Truck. I'm very curious about it.

 

Great squares from cshort. Stuff keeps getting in the way when I want to add to my pile. I'm crossing my fingers that today is better.

 

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday Everyone!  I actually managed to get some squares mailed out to our queen yesterday. I just might get a couple more out to someone else this month, lol. I hope all of you that have been sick/hurting are feeling better soon.

Hello Ladies, just wanted to stop by and say hello and congratulations to Tonyal.  I am able to be on the computer a little more each day as I am able to sit up more.  Most of the time I spend it with my legs up and I just don't have any easy way to sit the computer near me.  I am hoping to get the energy to start crocheting again soon as I miss making squares.  I guess this is why an I pad would be great.  I tried going on line with the nook but it just isn't as big and it was too hard.  So hi everyone, I'll be peeking in.

It is so good to see you posting my friend!  Take it easy and don't overdo.

 

I Have lilys, tulips, hostas, iris', and whatever annuals I got buy. Not had any trouble with the rabbits eating them. we used to have a family of them living under our garage.

oh, how pretty.  The rabbits always try to eat our bulbs, but I do have some tulips that should be blooming any day now.

 

Checked my mail and found a pleasant surprise.

Thank you Katyallen. (you were my first) lol  Seriously the are beautiful. I love them

Very nice!

 

Good Afternoon everyone. I received a few more squares in the mail yesterday and today. today they were from cshort 4 that will add a nice punch of color. and a couple from someone that I am not sure of, my DH tossed the envelope before i realized I didnt note who they were from. I snapped a picture of them but have to wait for DH to be home so I can use his camera cord.

I hope everyone is feeling better, my allergies have been going crazy since we have had nothing but rain for 2-3 days.

I did get great news this week my son in law finally got his release date from the marines, so they are moving home with my grandson in a month. I can't wait havent seen him since christmas. although now i have to get moving on cleaning and painting their house before they get back so everything is set for them.

Great news about having your family moving close.  Adorable picture!!!

Little K is happy today....I'm finally calling in sick today after being miserable all week. I can't stop blowing my nose! And no one at work wants to hear that so I'm giving myself today and hope I feel better soon! I need to! The weekend will be here and I want to do 'stuff'!!!

Katie, great squares! You know I love bright colors! Woot!

 

Has it almost been a year? Wow! Something special sounds great......but then again, this group is something special!

 

I've been sitting down, going thru a stack of printed out patterns, mostly squares, to figure out what to make next, and watched a movie. Free on demand. Anyone remember The Client with Susan Sarandon? I forgot how much I liked that movie! Weird being home without Little K!

 

Later!

Wow! It's really been a year! I remember the early days of Katie's reign well (as I'm sure Katie will too ;):P ). Sounds like a lovely idea for a celebration.

 

I just wanted to apologise for not being around alot recently. Got a lot going around my head at the moment. Not very good things so I'm all flustered. Can't find solace anywhere either, feels like I'm trying to walk through mud. :( I hope to be back in business soon. I tried to get squares out for Tampa Doll's afghan but they were returned to me. Kinda put another brick on the load I'm carrying.
