Well first of all I want to apologize for not answering some of my comments in a timely fashion, from my last couple of posts. I will. And in my defense, I have been keeping up my resolutions, which I will explain. And I had to spend time preparing for my visit with the Queen. Yes I had a visit with the Queen today. Pammy Sue was invited, but apparently couldn't make it.
This is how I prepare.....
Look at me...all cosy with an Agatha Christie movie
on Roofus (my laptop)
with one of my works in progress, and of course,
Tea. One must have tea in prep for a visit with the Queen, right?
We met at high noon, but first, my week.
While I was watching my movie, and enjoying my tea, I took my blankey out of this bag and what the heck is underneath it........(love this bag BTW)
another W.I.P! It appears that I was either making a Christmas table runner, place mats, or a loose scarf. At least now I know what happened to that other big needle. I'm ripping them both out. That's one way to take care of unfinished projects!
Other than this...I've had opportunities to commit to my New Year's resolutions. You see, on Monday, my Sister needed a babysitter, so my niece spent Sunday night and Monday at our house. We both hung out in our snuggly pj's. We made a bracelet, went out for lunch, and watched Toy Story III....see, I was busy. Resolution number 1 - spend time with fam. How cute is this? We named him Winston by the way. Winston the Welsh.
Then Tuesday I met with some friends for breakfast. One of them asked me to take a class with her that only lasts for 8 weeks, three hours a week. I can't I replied, I made a resolution not to fill up my spare time. My spare time that I am just this week, freeing up. She understood.
Wednesday I had a ton of paperwork and such to go through - because on Thursday I turned over the Community Garden job. But I don't feel the relief I thought I would feel. Maybe this summer. That's when it all gets to me.
Three boxes of this stuff out of the house.
Plus I'm still watching the boys everyday from 3:00 on.
So, I have been neglectful in responding to comments. And I want to ask all of you..which I think I have asked before....how do you respond to comments? I mean, sometimes I ask something, then I forget to go back and check the comment section where I asked the question. I've been tempted to post answers in my actual blog posts, like this....
To the Queen's response on me needing therapy for having so many unfinished projects....
"Well if I had assistants as a queen does, then maybe I'd have more time to crochet!" Hmmm, I do think she mentioned on her blog that she is turning into a lazy a@@! She said it, not me! I mean "donkey" A lazy donkey. I never made that connection before either! http://www.rebekahteal.com/2011/01/my-lazy-donkey.html
To Fi http://teacupsandtiskets.blogspot.com/ who just posted her crocheted unfinished projects. Come on...how fair is that? Post ALL unfinished...not just crocheted. I do love her projects! However, her and the Queen do have their nerve!
Speaking of nerve....how about TH (places where grace is) holding me responsible for not telling her the Granny Bee now has a blog. To her I say "responsible schmonsible!" All ya had to do was look at my side bar!
Oh, BTW- The Granny Bee has a blog. It's on my side bar. And please do not confuse her with the Bee Lady. I'm a beekeeper, which is why I'm the bee lady. I don't know how she came up with Granny Bee for the name of her (our)stitchery group. Maybe someone should ask her to share that information. But I do thank my G-bees (not to be confused with the B-Gees) for coming to my rescue on the unfinished project post!
Peace and Love and Happy Friday
PS - Didn't mean to confuse anyone. I was MENTALLY preparing myself for the visit with the Queen. We met at a local restaurant/coffee shop. And the paparazzi was everywhere. The place was packed.
Another PS - Fi? Was that comment a challenge? About who will get their ripply striped afghan done first? hmmmmm.....Mine could actually be done now if I wanted it to. There is no pattern per se' or is that per say....anyway, I just found out how to do the stripes and am doing my own thing.
