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!

Random stuff throughout the week

 We ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast twice this week. My Shug is on vacation.
Rhodes brand, in the freezer section, are great.
 My Shug wants a 1957 Chevy in this bay of the pole barn.
 But all he has is this card from me with a 1957 Chevy on it.  I sent it to him years ago and he saved it.  In the card I said I love him, and I'm going to miss him while I'm gone, and thanks for working so hard on the house.  I'm going to go get it (He has it on a bulletin board) and leave it for him again because I still love him, I'm going to be gone this week, and he's still working on the house (only it's a different house)!

The other day while my friend and I were going to the store, I stopped along the road to get a picture of the sky.  Can you see the dinosaur?
 My MIL fell a couple of months ago.   She has been living in the therapy place for two months and she wanted out.  They were not giving her the therapy they said they would give her.....I'm not even going to go into all of the details right now except to just show you this picture of all of the meds they had her on.  I spent an incredible amount of time on the phone this week trying to get her out and moved into her new assisted living place.  We did get her out, against their wishes, and she is doing better, and she took herself off of half of these meds.  She is 92....she can do what she wants as far as I'm concerned.

I bought this bag.  It's to put magazines, crochet project, and munchies in while flying.
I went to a friends garage sale today and bought this wool afghan for $2!  I also bought the basket
 and this mug, and tea bag holder.
 I got into my hives yesterday.  Only two out of nine survived.  I'm sad about it, but I'm not buying more bees this year.  It's too expensive and they don't seem to live through the winter anymore.
Debbie came over the other night and helped me move a bunch of stuff out of a room.  We took several boxes to Goodwill and some empty boxes to recycle.  Then my Shug and I moved some stuff to the pole barn.  While moving, I found an album.  And in it I found some old pictures.  Including this one.
Man do I ever wish I still looked like that!

Crochet group
Debbie has worked so hard on this blanket and loves it.
Thing is, she found out she is adding a stitch on every row.  She has been for about 2/3's of the blanket.
The question is, should she rip it out
 or just keep going and stop adding stitches.

 "K" finished this blanket which is incredible!  It was a mystery crochet a long.  We think it's beautiful, she isn't sure she likes it!
 I'm still working on this blanket.  I took it to crochet but I didn't get to do much with it this week.  I am so glad I took it because another group of yarnies at the coffee shop gave me a great idea on how to piece it together.  I was concerned because I was running out of yarn and don't really want to order any more.

 Lots of Attic 24 yarn in the coffee shop crochet groups.
 I'm down to the last of my yarn in the blanket that I was tearing out to do the one above.
Debbie is tearing out a few rows...then she realized the big mistake.....
 "K" started an Attic 24 pack of yarn this past week too.  I'm trying to force myself to finish mine before I start another one.

 I baked Morning Glory Muffins today for my trip.  I'm going with my friend Teresa to Las Vegas on Monday.
 That's my week in review.  What about you?  How was your week?  I will say I am ready to get away and relax for awhile.  I hate to fly, but after I get there I'll relax.

Did you find the dinosaur?


See ya in a week!

  1. I'm coming to your house for breakfast! Have a great time in Vegas. (Psssst, you're still gorgeous.)

  2. Come on over Jacque! For that compliment, you can have all the cinnamon rolls you want!

  3. I did find the dinosaur. Love all the Attic 24 yarn so pretty.

  4. I love that attic 24 yarn too Gill. Yay for finding the dinosaur. On FB they said I was drinking! They couldn't find it. I was not drinking and it was plain as day to me.

  5. Great bag! Wonderful crochet loveliness! I am afraid I would have to tear out the rows that were wrong if I was your friend. Hate wasting time like that. Bummer Love the mug and tea bag holder, how fun for you! Have a great time away! My best friend just came home from a trip south, oh how I wish I could go away.

  6. Cindy, Poor sugar man....he deserves a 57 chevy. He may have to settle for a golf cart made to look like one. LOL. You ladies are all so talented with your yarns. Very. Girl, you are looking good. Enjoy your youth, your health, and get that outfit on every once in awhile for your Suge.:):) Cindy, I am so sorry about the bees...what a loss. Is it because of the cold? Bless you. xoxo,Susie
