maybe...it's about 1/4" thick. I want to play with it someday, lol.

good morning...

it was a great day yesterday ~ can you believe Ali found the perfect boots at our FIRSTstop ? we went on to the moll ...I needed to exchange a shirt for Keith, his had a seam that was not sewn... Tammy and Jim and Faith joined us and we enjoyed some time , Ali wanted to go to Bath and body works and we just walked around
She was going to get her ears double pierced, but she cannot have earrings in for cheering, or volley ball or softball...so .... we did not do that
Krista took me to the store , so I am all set for tomorrow, well other than my house needs some attention... and I need to wrap a couple of gifts too...Tanya and Lois will be here ...

We brought Faith home with us and Tammy joined us later, they had a few errands to run Faith was up late, but she is still sleeping, so is Tammy I am off to get dressed and see what I can get done... quietly lol

Good morning Quackers! Happy New Year's Eve!

I slept in til 7 this morning, but didn't want to get up so I stayed in bed til 8:30. When I first woke up I heard Maggie Mae at the door, so I went and let her in the bedroom. She really missed her mama while I was gone.

Went out to feed the kitties. My little white girl kitty is missing. I didn't see her last night either. I'm sure she'll show back up when she realizes that I'm home. My NIL took pretty good care of everything except he fed the outside kitties the wrong food all week. I left him a note about it. They were really happy for me to get home and give them their old favorite food. I even had that pretty long haired cat out there this morning. At least this time there was no fighting. I'm going to have to check it out to see if a boy or girl and take to have it fixed. It is a very friendly kitty that I'm sure belonged to someone.

I have something perfect for you if you'll give me a couple months. Every faerie garden needs a gazing ball.... one just their size.

I have a book downstairs I acquired years ago for research. Planned to write a book on constructing faerie gardens but haven't gotten there yet hehe.

morning all...

Well, it's damp and cold here this morning. The rain has moved through to east TX....and now we are left with a grey yucky day! I'm sure glad that I went grocery shopping yesterday! Would not be in the mood for it today! I really wasn't yesterday either...but, it got done. The J-man got his fix for football all day yesterday. He was so excited to figure out the tv/dish so that he could watch multiple games yesterday at the same time! Whoo-hoo for him!

After grocery shopping...we ate lunch at 3pm. Rather late..but, we had a big breakfast. Then I headed to Joann's and then Sprouts. So, I got home about a quarter til 6pm. I wanted to get to Joann's for some more yarn. Knitting some cool scarves.

This is the weirdest yarn....looks like it's already woven. I'll have to find a link and post it. I've already made 3 scarves....it doesn't take long at all. It's kind of the big thing up here right now. I found out about it from one of the mom's at a rocket launch. She told me how to do it. So, I bought yarn for one for me. It took longer than I expected for the first one....because that yarn is so weird. But, now...it's going much quicker!

I saw it on Pinterest & it just stayed with me. I love the idea and think Alyssa & Libby would think it was pretty fun too. I asked Jen if I could have Libs for a week this summer & she is happy to share; that's different!!!! She used to hate to have them out of her sight!!

yeah, I was surprised! So far I have just used the camera on it but it takes pretty good pictures. Thats what I used for the pic of the grands. I just remembered as Jen was walking out the door. I yelled "wait!!!!" and grabbed the iPoa cause it was next to me. Have not had a chance to hook it on to WiFi yet and really load it up. Bud & I got hooked on Word Tornado and play it on FB & forget 'other' stuff.

Glad you're home safe, Maggie. Yeah, taking a week off from DT sounds like a plan. I could use another week off LOL. Can't wait to see pics.

I know when i've been gone a few days, Butter takes off and goes up the road to Betty's horse barn. Sometimes he realizes I'm back right away, sometimes it takes him 3 or 4 days.. either to realize or to make me stew... I'm not sure which hehe

Bummer on Ali not being able to wear earrings. But I do understand. Glad she got her boots. I have trouble finding what I want when I go shoe shopping. I need to get my ears pierced again. The right one - requiring a road map to traverse - has closed up completely. I want to be able to wear earrings again now that I'm dressing up more for work. And I lovely faux pearls I want to wear in April.

Enjoy your day with everyone. Please give me love to Lois and Tanya. I didn't get them a Christmas card out this year. Not sure why. Maybe I need to look at my address book again.

I actually got another one mostly done while we were at Deb's. We had a bowl game on....I sat and had 3/4 of it done! Finished it during the movie we watched on Christmas. I highly recommend NOT watching the movie "Ted". Glad it wasn't a gift to US is all that I can say.

I ended up giving the scarf to nephew's girlfriend. Deb made one using a different yarn company...bigger holes...all one color of purple for one of the ladies at the art league. Deb had made one for the gift giving (had to be hand made) for the art league. Then all these ladies wanted Deb to teach them how to make them. Except for one lady....she just wanted Deb to make one so she could buy it. Deb said that this lady reminds her of Weezer from Steel Magnolias. ANYWAY.....scarf was on the rocking chair....nephew's gf put it on and said that she just loved it! So, I filled her in on where the scarf was going. Then I showed her mine. She fell in love with it. When I was almost done....I showed her the purple yarn that Deb had....it was all shades of purple. Deb didn't like this yarn as well. It happened to be the brand I was using. I asked the gf which she liked....she liked the colors in mine....gold, olive green, royal blue and dark purple. Sounds weird...but, it blends nicely. When I was all done....I put it around her neck while we were watching the movie. She said it felt so soft.....and I told her good...glad she liked it. Told her to keep it! Oh she was so excited! Deb handed me the purple yarn to make another one. I'm in the process of doing that one now!

Glad the fish tanks are home, Dody. I know that makes Bud happy. As to taking down the decorations... My tree stays up through January 8th or there abouts. The bathroom stays up through January 'cause it's all snowmen/ snowflakes/ icecicles.. and I love it

When we take the big tree down inside, we'll take the lights off the house and the tree down outside. I bought 2 sets of those lighted gift package sets (come in sets of 3 varying sizes) at Dollar General last week 50% off. They'll look nice under the tree on the porch next year.

Since I didn't decorate the kitchen this year, I really need to get the everyday curtains/ towels/ rugs back in there. Kitchen looks a bit bare hehe

Love the scarf story, Suzy. Doesn't it feel good to make someone happy with such a 'simple' gesture.

I'm wanting to make scarves to go in the stockings for the ensemble next year. I want them to be light but warm and maybe something that corkscrews a bit. Haven't decided yet. I have TONS of books downstairs with patterns. About Feb. I'll see if something jumps out at me. I only have to make 8-10. I'm not sure if I'll make Steven and Sara one or not because I know she knits. Steven was yarn shopping for her while he was here. She fell in love with our little yarn shop last year.

Okay... I need to go work out. The dogs are taken care of and I have a load of sweaters ready to be hung downstairs. Right now, the house hasn't gotten overheated. Perfect workout temp. I'll check in this afternoon.

Happy New Years Eve!

Dody...your new toy sounds like fun. Jack gave me a Kindle Fire HD. I've been enjoying that. Still need to get a case for it. So, for right now...it lives in the box! My BIL "had" a Kindle. He took it to DC with him....well, let's say it's not working now! He recommended a hard case after I opened my gift! Then my niece opened her gift from her parents. She had a Kindle...he said the same thing! Deb said that if she had known he was going to break his....she would have bought two that day!

Went out to feed the kitties. My little white girl kitty is missing. I didn't see her last night either. I'm sure she'll show back up when she realizes that I'm home. My NIL took pretty good care of everything except he fed the outside kitties the wrong food all week. I left him a note about it. They were really happy for me to get home and give them their old favorite food. I even had that pretty long haired cat out there this morning. At least this time there was no fighting. I'm going to have to check it out to see if a boy or girl and take to have it fixed. It is a very friendly kitty that I'm sure belonged to someone.
Happy New Year's Eve to you too! Must be a day for sleeping in, we didn't wake up until after 8 too & that's really unusal.

I bet your kitties were sooo happy to see you! That was a long time you were gone (to them!)

COOL!!!! It will be summer before I can put it together anyway. I need to wait until the pool is in before I think about landscaping the side. I just figured that I could start gathering/making stuff now. LOL, I have no moss around here & may have to buy some or take a field trip ~ my old house had plenty! I had an old bird bath top that would have worked great but of course we didn't move it. I will keep my eyes peeled for treasures. oh!!! and stories! I'll need stories to tell my babies!

Well, it's damp and cold here this morning. The rain has moved through to east TX....and now we are left with a grey yucky day! I'm sure glad that I went grocery shopping yesterday! Would not be in the mood for it today! I really wasn't yesterday either...but, it got done. The J-man got his fix for football all day yesterday. He was so excited to figure out the tv/dish so that he could watch multiple games yesterday at the same time! Whoo-hoo for him!
After grocery shopping...we ate lunch at 3pm. Rather late..but, we had a big breakfast. Then I headed to Joann's and then Sprouts. So, I got home about a quarter til 6pm. I wanted to get to Joann's for some more yarn. Knitting some cool scarves.

This is the weirdest yarn....looks like it's already woven. I'll have to find a link and post it. I've already made 3 scarves....it doesn't take long at all. It's kind of the big thing up here right now. I found out about it from one of the mom's at a rocket launch. She told me how to do it. So, I bought yarn for one for me. It took longer than I expected for the first one....because that yarn is so weird. But, now...it's going much quicker!
We have RED ZONE for that, I am not a fan but Justin & Bud love it. I can only follow 1 game at a time!

The scarf sounds really nice, I need to get more for myself (and by more I mean more than the 1 I have ) They are so trendy now!
