Katiebug- it looks like your dd found a new playmate!     That's an awesome amount of squares, but Owlvamp, you sure have your work cut out for you.   I just finished my rendition of "Dobby the

Hi all. Just realized I only have 2 weeks to finish the baby blanket for my friends baby shower, but I'm almost done. We took the kids to Steak 'n Shake for lunch, then went to Walmart to get the kids

Hi all. Been missing around here for a few days, so I wanted to check in. Jade has less than a month until her birthday.   Oh and the picture of my "stash" all over my living room floor, and part o

Dh was off today and had an appointment to look at a house. I said OH H___ NO when we pulled up. He said he couldnt tell from the picture that it set on a really steep hill and had lots of steps inside the house-----maybe 40 years ago nah even 40 years ago I already had enough of mowing terraces to know I didnt want to mow this hillside. The drive way from the street to the house was way too steep probably 45 degree angle, only flat area was small area out the back door.

 Well, you tell dh we all said NO.... put the little bunny you made me last year out on his shelf... smiled when I thought of you Brenda!

 

   Did a bunch of errands, one included a young lady who use to live down the street from us, I have known her since she ws 8, her mother passed away in 2008 when she was 16, so I kinda tuck her under my wing when she needs it... she just had a new baby girl, so I spent an hour or so lovin on the baby, bringing gits to her older 3 boys and some fun gifts for Alora.... so fun making for a girl after all these boys!  came home and worked ont eh owl a bit and all I need are a beak and feet and that one will be done!  Then to start on the rabbits MJ posted, bought the pattern yesterday and I am chomping at the bit to git er done!!

Katy funny you mentioned carrying groceries because dh brought that up himself after he got done carrying them in here when we got back. On slick days you would never get the car up that drive into the garage or even in the drive to park. Shoot its doubtful I could make it up that hill on foot either even when its just wet. It was steep. Oh he agreed with me and said this place was everything we were trying to get away from but way worse.

I have spent my morning filling in the crater at the back of our shed that I just filled on Mon. My little barricade did not deter them so I have to try something bigger. I really had other things I needed to do. Wanted to get it fixed as dh would just explode if he knew.

 

Mary Jo we had 80's again yesterday.

 

Well off to see if I can get some of the things done that I didnt get to earlier.

Oh! that's quite alright, Linda ~ :)  As long as Rene' know where were each coming from ~ LoL

 

Sorry you're getting your round with that flu bug ~ :hug Just take it easy and get your fluids down, and rest.

 

We just had a terrific thunder storm roll thru here a bit ago!  High winds and a whole lotta rain!  Looks like a day spent inside, and crocheting will be a good respect for me ~ :)

Sorry about the flu! DH isn't feeling well today either...

I haven't been able to do much crocheting. I've been busy with church stuff and school stuff. Even though I did have a little extra time this week to start a thread project. I was very thankful for that! I'll post when it's done. Kinda don't want to jinx it by saying too much. I've set myself a rather large goal and I'm not sure if I'll reach it.

 

As Garrison Keillor always says, "Be well, do good work, & keep in touch."

Hi, I was a member of this original group way back. Had so much fun and met a dear sweet lady (

dobermama) she is under hospice care and is in her final hours. I ask for prayers for her and her family.

 

​Thanks, Glenda

Linda and Rene' good to see you both here and not down with the flu. Linda how do you fix your corn beef? I tend to cook it ahead so it can cool and I can slice it. Then I cook cabbage potatoes and carrots in its broth and add the meat back. We have it with corn bread.

 

 

Glenda its been a long time but I remember both you and Dobermama and will keep her in my prayers.

 

Yesterday was one of those days when we left at 745 am and didnt get back until 10pm. We got some badly n eeded rain. The neighbors dogs have dug around my barricades at the shed so I am going to have to fill in holes again.

Good Morning.

 

So sorry to hear about dobermama.  I remember her well.  I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

 

Miss Jade is growing up so fast and is very, very cute.  Love the smile.

 

I had a lot to catch up on.  I twisted my knee in my sleep the other day and it has been giving me trouble, so I have not been on for a few days.  You girls really have been busy.

 

Get well all you who have the flu and for those who have it in the house, good luck in keeping well.

 

Well, the weather has improved here, as we are into the 80's and the Spring Breakers and Spring Training have great weather.  We are surrounded by the Phillies, Yankees and the BlueJays.  There are 2 more here, but I can never remember who they are.

 

Over the weekend they had a big Greek festival at the Sponge Docks.  That is where the shrimp boats and the sponge boats come in.  They had Greek dancers and everything.  Tarpon Springs is a big Greek Community, where the church is the center of it.

 

Well, I am off to put together another bunny and I am trying to find flat disk around 5mm gold for the belly dancing bunny I am making.

 

Take care and hugs all around. :hug  :ghug  :hug

Linda I wound up buying 2 corn beef because they were small. Dh loves it and this is the only time of year he gets it. Then I think it often tastes better the second day.

 

We are getting some badly needed rain. I just finished my appointment at the dentist and waiting on dh. It was nice this time to have no problems as the last time I needed a root canal and the time before that I needed a crown.

Finished Miss Purple.  I added 2 sc's to the ears and stretched them when I stiffened them.

 

I gave this one to my friend instead of the green one.
