ho ho over it

I've always been all about Christmas. Merry and bright is always my theme and I normally go all out. Well, I give. Uncle. I've been listening to my favorite Christmas music, watched all my movies, baked until I was ready to collapse. No matter what I just can't get into it. I'm tired of feeling guilty about it, so in just goin to say it. Humbug!
To those of you enjoying the holidays I'm glad and hope it is wonderful for you. As for me, I'm officially skipping it this year. Christmas playlist gone. David gray is going to sing me to sleep tonight. So to those of you struggling with life, holidays, and everything else...come sit by me. I'll share the fourteen pounds of cookies I have and we can rock out to something fun....and we can do Christmas next year.

Is there an echo in here? ? ? ?

Wow...last post was in November of 2007!!!!

Yea, I know. That is why the resounding echo in here. Chirping crickets etc...

Well, we opened up our new business and it's been a crazy, insane, non-stop whirl wind of a year. Seriously, zero time to think about blogging. The couple of times I wanted to I couldn't remember my blasted password. Now for the new business I'm blogging and using twitter and facebook etc...but it is all for the business and I want to keep the personal stuff seperate. I think I need the outlet again so I'm going to see if I can squeeze in some time to blog again. Not much knitting of late but I'm hoping that will change...eventually.

Hopefully there will be more to come very soon.

A review in pictures

Because ya'll know how I luvs the pictures!

October brought this home more than ever as a long awaited baby girl survives life threatening lung problems and we lose my aunt.

Gertrude and below is Wally. Cute couple huh? She is the boss though...and tends to kick if he gets to close when I'm feeding them carrots. They aren't mine..but live next to me and tend to follow me around. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the carrots!

Just a neat picture of a lamp

The court house in Hillsboro Texas.

Abigail the lazy...has such a hard life.

Kodi loves his kong...and yes he stays like this until he gets all the treats out!

begging for attention

My most awesome knitting bag that I got for my Birthday in October!

one of many pairs of halloween socks I bought this year.

She Lives!

Why yes I AM still alive thank you :)

Considering I've had two lovely comments on old posts in the last week I thought I really need to get my rear in gear and post to this lil old blog that has been so sorely neglected.

I mean I have 3 whole subscribers I wouldn't want to lose them! I have wanted to blog in the last oh 2 months or so and have even had things to blog about. Unfortunately it just kept getting pushed to the bottom of my to-do list's. Yes you read that correctly. LISTS, as in I have a few. At the very least I have one going for each business and a personal one.

I hope everyone had a wonderful lovely Thanksgiving and got to spend the day doing just what you wanted where you wanted. I had originally planned to hibernate at home alone and take advantage of my parents and sister being out of town. However I did end up going to the family reunion (yes on Thanksgiving) and got to hold baby Peyton for which I am VERY thankful for. Our biggest blessing and miracle this year is that baby girl. I'm so so sooooooo thankful she is home and doing better. She looks so much like her Daddy that it amazes me. I told him I have visions of her running around in about two years demanding Cheetos and apple juice which is what he did when he was two.

I am going to really try to be a better blogger. I can't promise great content but I will do my best to post more often. I have been knitting on my second no rules bag and my garter stitch shawl. Hopefully I will finish one of them by the end of the year.

I also am over on ravelry as Sugarbritches, feel free to add me if I haven't already added you!

KnitOut in Austin! October 13th 2007

Hey everyone!

The Lone Star State Knitters are hosting the 2007 Knit out and Crochet too on October 13th, 2007 in Austin Texas. Here is the site for more info 2007 Knit Out

It will be held at the Borders at SouthPark Meadows and should be lots of fun! There will be free lessons for anyone who wants to learn or just come and hang out with a great bunch of ladies and bring your projects!

At this moment in time I'm not positive I will be able to make it, but I am going to try my hardest. With a trip, a move, and a couple of loved ones in bad health things are a little uncertain at the moment. If there is any way I can be there, I will!

If you aren't a member of LSSK and thinking of going email me! They are some wonderful and fun ladies and have skills of all levels. AND, hello we are talking AUSTIN! What better excuse to make a road trip!

It's a Boy!

A bouncing 82lb 4 year old! Meet Kodi...

Well...we aren't sure how hold he is exactly but are told around four or five years. He doesn't really act that old though, he can be pretty playful!

I adopted/rescued him on September 20th. My sister and I drove to meet the owner and Kodi with the intention of not bringing him home with us that day. With all the craziness that is our life right now and the possible pending funeral we just thought it would be better to wait. However, once we met this sweet boy we could tell he needed some immediate care and attention. He was well loved, but I think his owner just did not know how to take care of him. As you can see, he is entirely too skinny

Yes, he is the same breed as Bonnie my sister's dog. He is a Komondor and like Bonnie I will keep his hair short and not corded. He has a few physical issues and special needs that we are working on, but just in the short time we've had him I think he has improved. He is already fitting right in with the family, and much to my sisters dismay prefers to sleep on her couch. He will stay at my sister's through the first week in October while we are out of town, then I'll get to bring him home!

He really thinks he is a lap dog because he wants to be in your lap or practically laying on you all the time. He loves affection and can be a bit demanding if you are ignoring him! The poor guy has been shuffled around a lot in his life but he has the sweetest temperament and behaves very well considering! Hopefully he'll be very happy in his new home with me and Lady and the cats.

Yea for hand knit presents!

My package arrived this Saturday from the Knit Knack One Skein Wonder exchange! I didn't get to pick it up until Sunday morning and I admit I did tear into it in the car!

Regan my awesome exchange buddy made me these pretty wrist warmers! I love them so! I really have been wanting a pair because the ones I have were my first attempt with some cheap acrylic and got used a lot last year and they didn't hold up very well.

She also sent me a What Happens in Canada Stays In Canada t-shirt with some yummy snacks!

Thanks so much Regan! You Rock! This was a much needed pick me up this weekend!

Calm before the storm

To sum up why I haven't been posting much lately this is the best way I can describe things. I'm juggling many balls right now and they are all up in the air. At the moment they are all suspended up there and I'm just waiting for them to start dropping.

We are awaiting the birth of the newest member of the family. We are also awaiting the passing of my aunt. There is nothing else they can do for her and it's just a matter of days. It's horrible beyond words.

We (my sister and I) also have the starting of a new business. This involves much waiting and "red tape" so to speak. Relocating our current business in a VERY short period of time. Being out of the state for a week for training very soon. These things are exciting though (maybe a wee bit stressful) and I can't wait for a couple of months until we are farther along!

Oddly enough though, I'm calm. For the moment. I'm not sure why really. I guess because it won't help to be otherwise. Don't get me wrong each day can be a bit of an emotional roller coaster but over all I've been pretty calm about it all. Possibly because I know it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

I'm terribly behind on everything. Emails, posting, the blogs I read and not to mention knitting. I'm trying as hard as I can to catch up!
