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

Well Dec birthday girls I spent Christmas eve making your squares.  Now to get those ends worked in ( got some done tonight) and then packaged to mail.  I have gotten so spoiled making squares to mail to the lady that assembles squares into afghans for PRR.  She wants us to not work in the ends so she can do it herself.

I think our Christmas gathering at my sister's house went pretty well.  All the nieces and nephews made it this year.  There are no more little ones---- my great nephew is in middle school.  Food was good and as usual I ate too much.  My bil smoked brisket.  

We might get another little snow along towards morning.  I saw a MINUS 5 degrees actual temp in the forecast around New Years.  I hope they are wrong.

Good Morning,

I wish my bladder would learn that no work means I can sleep in, I was awake at my usual 4:30 and had to get out of bed to use the bathroom. I went back to bed but couldn't fall asleep again. So here I am with my coffee and laptop. My oldest grandkids will be back later today to spend the rest of the week with me until then I think I might do some sewing.

Yesterday was lots of fun with everyone here. I won't need to cook for a couple of days either because I have lots of leftovers and I made split pea soup with the ham bone. 

I need to take a look at our birthday list so I can get myself back in gear in 2018 and make birthday squares, I was really slacking in 2017.

Guess thats about it for me. Have a great day everyone.

Good Morning,

Very cool here and the sun is now under the clouds. 

Sounds like everyone had a very busy Christmas and it sounds like you had some fun with all the family around.  We heard from the kids and it was a very quite day.

Hey Brenda got two good gifts on Sat and Sun.  KC won, Dallas lost and is OUT.  Last night the Eagles just won, so we have home field.  Next week is the Cowboys for the last game of the regular season. Congrats on KC entering the playoffs.  I just hope the QB for the Eagles plays better from now on.

So I am hoping to start on an afghan for my neighbor who checked on us and worried during the hurricane week.  He is always coming over with stuff he has smoked or made in the crock-pot.  He is a big baseball fan, and especially about the Rays, so I am going to make a graph ghan that is the Tampa Bay Rays Logo.

Well off to see what trouble I can get into.

Have a fun day.

Here is the last doll I made Belle the Ballerina.

Mary Jo I actually got to watch the game Sun.  We are usually out running around.   It brought back memories of the Christmas game between the Chiefs and Dolphins  in 1971. I dont really remember games ( shoot I cant remember what I had for breakfast) but I remember that game.  We were at my grandma's house in southern MO for Christmas so we got to watch it on tv.  It was blacked out back in KC.  My 14 year old sis loved Len Dawson and watching the Chiefs.  I think I actually have a photo of my favorite uncle watching the game with us. It was the  last game at old stadium (before Arrowhead).  It was warm and field was muddy.  Shocking missed field goals by Ian Stenerud,  game went into double overtime, Dolphin winning field goal by Garo Yepremium.  Glad KC won but Miami had a lot of penalties that helped them out a lot. The Tampa Ray afghan for your neighbor sounds like a great idea.  Dh and I were both hoping there was someone checking on you during the hurricane week.  Belle is really cute.  Well out of habit have you found yourself thinking I need to start a tote and then heave a sigh of relief remembering you retired.

I wandered out to see if the mail had come yet, sweep the snow off the porch, top.off the bird feeder, put out a new block of suet and check to see if Cleo was around.  Its another cloudy day and miserably cold out.  I will check for Cleo a little later.  If she is there she will get a can of wet food if not I will leave dry.  Working on laundry and putting away Christmas presents.  Sort of waiting to see if a friend calls or not.  She doesnt keep in touch anymore except for sometimes calling when they get in this area.

Katy I watched season 1 and 2 of Zoo on network tv.  By season 3 I didnt want to continue watching it.

Hi to all!  This is the first chance I've had to get on here!  Busy, busy, busy!!

We had a really good Christmas!  DH's family decided to exchange names this year, so it wasn't quite so chaotic this year!  The only little children are a 8 yr. old and a 4 month old, and they got most of the gifts!  (As it should be, anyway!)  Dave and I got gift cards and clothing (shirts), so we are very satisfied!  We had an excellent dinner: ham (delicious and tender!), several vegetable casserole-type dishes, a couple of veggie salads, and plenty of desserts!  We were all stuffed by the time we left!  It was getting dark (around 6:00) , so we just came on home.  DH's eyes (and mine!) aren't quite as good as they used to be (Well, we ARE in our 70's--OUCH!  That hurts to see it in print!!), and we were 20 minutes from town, so we decided to play it safe--since we'd gotten a good dusting of snow, and the highway can get slick! 

Our temps plunged to the low teens today, and are supposed to get around 0 tonight!  Br-r-r-r!!!:wbrr

Hope everyone's recovered from the overeating of the Christmas dinner!

Take care!  Talk to you all later!

Happy Birthday everybody that had one in Dec.  Update on my Mother. She is slowly up walking with a walker. They just started it today. She is excited. I am proud of my Mother. She is trying very hard to walk and get better. Her birthday is Jan. 4.  She will be 87. Mother hopes to be home before then. I am not sure. But she is doing good. Thanks for all the prayers.  And she says, Thank you. We had a wonderful Christmas.  Got some pretty skeins of yarn for Christmas. My sister got me 3 of the prettiest colorful yarn you ever seen.   Thanks everyone. You all are a blessing.

similiar to the threads for the books,charity items by babypoohsmom,start fresh,it takes longer to load for some people,just a thought

Hi! all and Happy Holidays some more ~ :)

Can I make a request?  How about showing everyone's birthday in parenthesis next to their name?  Example:   Lovin2crochet (25th)

I'm such a procrastinator or always draggin' my feet  :reyes, maybe it will keep me on track if I have a "deadline" to shoot for, so to speak ~ ;)  (ain't nothing like gettin' a present and a birthday card just before or on your birthday, right?)

Looks like it's "back to work" now for the rest of the week ~ getting laundry done up now.  Yesterday I got in another baking mood again, so made up a batch of butter crescent rolls to go with our pot of stew.  It's cold outside and a good day for soups or stew, as some others have said ~ :)  Not sure what to fix for today, tho . . . the rolls got finished off by the mister, tho, along with the left-over stew for his lunch.  Maybe I can get him to fix us some biscuits and gravy, and I'll fry up some potatoes . . . nice 'n' simple.

Think I'll get to working on the December squares, too . . . the month is gonna be out before I know it!

It is REALLY cold here, hanging in the 20's now.  We usually get ice on New Year's, so as usual, it's safer staying home.  We usually take communion together, then pray thru the New Year ~ thanking God for His blessings and mercy this past year and thru the coming year.  Then we "toast" to the New Year with our sparkling grape drink ~ :)

Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful blessed New Year ~  :ghug

The admins suggested a long time ago that long running threads should periodically start fresh and the new year is just a good time to do it. Most of the other cals start fresh each year like the stashbusting , boxing day, encouragement for making gifts for next year.  After awhile it causes problems for people trying to open this thread because it has so much to load.  You do not need admin permission to open a new thread. They can lock the old one when they show up.  The worst that will happen is that people may continue posting on the old thread for awhile until its locked but most will see the 2018 and move to that one with no problem.
