In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Glimpses of my week

This week has been one of those crazy roller-coaster type weeks.  First of all, I told you the other day my Uncle passed away.  
As it turned out, the viewing was Sunday late afternoon/evening.  
And on the way there...
 there were three slide-offs
 within five miles
 of leaving our house.  I told my Shug to turn around and go home!

He did not.  On the way home it was worse.  Not only was it dark, but there were drifts.  But we made it home safely, thank you God! 
I told everyone I might not be there Monday as I would be doing the driving.  As it turned out, the next day was fine and the roads were mostly cleared off!

I'm going to skip a couple of days as they need posts of their own!

So let's skip to Thursday crochet group!
This is another WIP I decided to pull out and work on.

 Progress on the endless granny square that Debbie is working on.  She isn't tired of it yet though!
 And "K" made a funky scarf out of this funky yarn.  I have some similar yarn that I might make a cowl out of....but must focus on WIP's....must focus on WIP's........
 Why is it so hard to focus on WIP's?  
Today is Saturday.
I have completed all the hexy's and poly's on this, and now I need to stitch it all together.
 I even made a few extra hexy's and poly's - dammittohell!  I don't need extra parts!  That's what happens when you put something away for too long.  You lose your place and start over, in the wrong place!
This morning, A beautiful Saturday morning, look what I see!
Do you see it?
Now do you see it?  
 Guess what?  It's the calm before the storm.  And these guys know it!

 We are expecting 6-10 inches of snow, starting tonight.

I must go.  I just heard my Shug pull up and I haven't showered yet.  We are insulating the upstairs bathroom today.  UGH....but it's one step closer to finishing the house.
Stay Warm,
Cindy Bee


  1. I hate driving in conditions like that!
    Insulating the bathroom eh? I thought hauling logs from the forest was bad enough,but you beat me.

  2. Hi Cindy, I do not miss Indiana in the winter! I hate driving in bad weather, but I do miss it in the summer and fall :) Love your hexies :)
    I sounds like you are getting closer and closer to having your new home completed . . . I'm so happy for you .
    Have a lovely weekend and if you watch the Super Bowl cheer for the Sea Hawks. I really think that the other team should have been disqualifies and that the Colts should have been given the game.
    Keep Smiling,
    Connie :)

  3. Oh dear and then we get it Sun-Mon (8-12) and I am on the couch resting my back from shoveling the 22.5 we got the beginning of the week!...:)JP

  4. Hello Cindy!! Wow those were some perilous road conditions. Thank goodness you made it home safely. I want some of that snow here in KY :)

  5. Hi Cindy, I would have turned around...I just hate being out in nasty stuff. I drove 30 years in it and just don't want to do it any more. Hey, I wanted to give you this blog name. I saw on Cranberry Morning's that a lady called Nancy had knitted some socks...her blog is Wyoming Breezes....thought you'd like to check her out...being you got all that time on your hands with nothing to do...just kidding you sweetheart...I know you are always busy.LOL. Let's stay in and be safe this next few days.xoxo, Susie

  6. Hello Cindy. We got your snow starting on late Saturday night. Here in Ohio we understand. The snow let up this morning right before noon. I am so sorry for your family's loss, and then having to get out and drive in that mess. If a death in the family isn't enough then one has to deal with the stress driving in that nasty stuff. Your honeycomb bag is gonna be so cute when finished. I know what you mean about making extra motifs. I have done that too and could kick myself, especially when I was getting to the point of wearing pretty thin on wanting to be done for once and for all. The sun is shining here this afternoon. Weatherman says 1-2 inches more Tuesday evening. Just what we need, more fun.
    Have a good week.
    Susanne :)
