Good morning! I've already had my morning coffee, and I'm getting ready to go on an adventure. I'm very excited. A yarn store and an antique store. I've never been to either place. And I am not going to feel guilty for buying more yarn, so don't even start with me. My Shug is working this weekend, I've already gone to the library and loaded up on videos, and the Winter Woolen Workshop is next weekend. I have things to make and I want more yarn!
But before I go, I need to speak my mind. So you can skip this part in red if you don't wanna hear it, and just go right on down to the fun part of this post. Or read at your own risk.
First, I turned off word verification. Blogger has changed the format and it's just too hard to verify words now.
Second, my Random Act of Kindness yesterday (this is RAoK week) was to not flip off the person that cut me off pulling into the parking lot that I was pulling out of. She was looking DOWN at something on her passenger seat, and pulling into the parking lot, at the same time. Coming right at me. When she looked up, she looked confused....like she was thinking...."whut....whud aye Dooo?" So lady, if you're reading my blog, It's America. We drive on the right side of the road all the time! I was nice. I smiled and kindly gestured for her to get in her own lane. I'll try to find a better act of kindness today, but let me just say, People...pay attention when you drive. My Mom thinks I text and drive. I don't. I only read a text at a stop light. Not while I'm driving.
Thirdly, this whole Whitney thing....now let me start out by saying that I loved the Whitney Houston we all loved and knew 20 years ago. She was this sweet, God-fearing, beautiful, humble, thankful, singer with an absolute gorgeous voice. But people, she turned into a drug addict, and raised a daughter in a drug environment, and everybody knew it. EVERYONE. So, first, why did she get to raise a child in that environment? Where was Child Protective Services? My prediction, Bobbie Christine Houston Brown, plaintiff, vs. Child Protective Services, defendant. And second, when are we going to start taking responsibility for our own actions? It is not Whitney's Doctor(s) fault she overdosed. If we continue to blame doctors for overdosing people, we're going to have to go to the pharmacy every day, and pick up one pill a day, rather than a month supply. And if this incident happened in our town, we'd say in that quiet-better than thou voice......"well what did you expect, he/she did drugs for the last 20 years." End of story. AND. DON'T. EVEN. GET. ME. STARTED. on lowering the flags at half-mast....for an entertainer.....uh uhhhh...it's just wrong. WRONG. I'm trying to stop here...
And Fourthly, I'm watching the news again, can you tell? Apparently there is a restaurant in Vegas that some Washington group of people are trying to get shut down, on morals. It's called the Heart Attack Grill. Waiters dress in nurse outfits. The hamburgers are called triple by-pass and such. And some guy had to be carried out by ambulance because he really was having a heart attack, and people thought it was a publicity stunt. Oh yeah, people who are over 350 pounds eat free. First of all, it's Vegas. Enough said. (I'm going there in March, Vegas, not the restaurant)
And this is exactly why I read blogs instead of the newspaper or watch the news...geeesh
So onto blogging fun....
THIS is what our floor is going to look like, in the living area of our basement. HOT! I am SO excited. I'll post about it on the house blog...later, because I'm running out of time.
And this little Dixie Doodle guy is just cute. He lays on the chair like that so he can stare at me while I'm on the computer. I'm gonna go give him a hug, right now. Hold on...
On the dog front, we've only had one "accident" since I laid down the law, and they started getting more attention, and I have restricted their running around space when I'm not home.
And here is a pic of my next WIP. I just started fumbling around with this cotton yarn that I love. Fantasy Naturale. It's doesn't split like the cheaper cotton yarn does. I just had to get away from Granny's for awhile. And guess what? I gotta go get ready for my adventure because the store we are going to has this yarn!!!! WOOHOOO!
