Good news!

We must have caught the shingles really early.  There has been no spreading, and I can leave the house!  I have 10 blisters, which are shrinking with the medication that my doctor prescribed!  On Thursday, when I went to the Doctor, he got a culture of the fluid, and the results came back normal.  Isn’t that great?  So, because it looks like shingles, and is acting like shingles (it really hurts), we are treating it like shingles.  I’m just so glad that … [Read more...]

At some point in time, oh maybe 2 years ago, I decided that I wasn’t sure I wanted to blog anymore.  I was really tired of having a place for people to check up on me, without having to contact me and ask me how things were going.  Mostly, I think it was ex’s that I didn’t want to know about my life, not old friends.  As time as passed, I’ve continued to censor myself and what I talk about.  I tried to only talk about my knitting.  I tried to only … [Read more...]

SP 12 - Question #5

1) Where is your favorite place to go for vacation/holiday? Oh, my…  Ireland, Ireland, Ireland.  I love Ireland.  I would live there if I could.  It’s so peaceful and slow there.  I even tried to find a husband there (before John). 2) Where is one place you’d like to go? I’d like to go to Scotland…  I hear that it is beautiful, and there is great wool there.  … [Read more...]

New pictures!

Here is Sean, at 17 weeks (just shy of 4 months old) This one features his homeys, 2 of his friends that he likes to eat.  And, don’t ask me how I got them perfectly placed.  I’m not sure I could do it again if I tried! This one looks better in person, a lighter color but oh so cute! I love this one with the toes, he has just found them! and just because he drools like crazy right now, I thought this one was most appropriate! … [Read more...]

SP 12 - Question #4

1) What yarn (that you don’t have/haven’t used) would make your stash “complete”? Wow, what a question!  You know, I’ve wanted to try all kinds of yarn, and everything I’ve wanted to try I’ve bought.  I have handspun Alpaca from Alaska, I have Qiviut, I have camel, I have Tilli Thomas, I have cashmere, I have silk blends.  I have all kinds of brand names…  Rowan, Malabrigo, Noro, Blue Sky, Lornas Laces, Schaefer…  I … [Read more...]

My how they grow…

I knit this sweater (from a pattern that my SP11 sent me) (Hi Melissa!), it’s Mikey Liked It.  I thought I would take some pictures of things I have finished for him to wear…  I forgot to take pictures when he could actually wear them. So the first picture is this cute sweater, and matching hat.  I’m so sad about this hat.  I remember him sleeping in it when he first came home from the hospital.  I had a hard time keeping it out of his eyes.  Now, … [Read more...]

The best day was Yesterday…

My son kissed me for the first time yesterday.  I have no idea if he knew what he was doing, but it made my day.  Opened mouth, lots of drool, but what a moment.  I cried. … [Read more...]

SP 12 - Question of the Week 2

As a kid, what did you look forward to most about summer vacation/break/holiday? We went camping every summer, and I don’t have many memories of that…  But I do remember going to Girl Scout Camp the summer after I turned 12, I was really awkward at 12…  I was chubby and didn’t care much about hair/make-up and clothes.  Mom sent me to The Timbers to sailing camp.  I was the youngest girl in the group of 9 girls who were sailing.  We had 2 tents … [Read more...]

Thank you!

For your good thoughts about my mom.  Things are getting better, and I hope that she is healing.  I help change her bandages twice a day, and the redness seems to be getting better.  I’d take a picture, but, it’s pretty gross. … [Read more...]
