Sabercats lose the Arena Bowl

I just wanted to mention that my San Jose Sabercats lost the Arena Bowl on Sunday…  They put up a very good fight, and I am very proud of them.  The last minute of the game was some of the best football I’ve seen in a long time, and honestly, they tried their best.  I know that they will try hard to go to Arena Bowl again next year, and next time, I will be there, with my cow bell, cheering them on. Go Cat’s! … [Read more...]

SP Question Week 7

What is(are) your favorite place(s) to knit? I love to knit in front of the television, especially when reality television is on…  Big Brother, Project Runway, Top Chef, all my favorite shows to knit by.  I also love to knit on the plane.  It’s quiet, and I tend to get a lot of work done. What supplies (besides yarn & needles) make the setting perfect for knitting? Buttons!  I love to have lots of buttons around for inspiration!  One good button can … [Read more...]

lost days

My server went down, and I’ve lost a few days.  I talked about Daisy mostly, who is fine.  I’m getting over spending so much.  There really isn’t any recourse anyway, is there? … [Read more...]

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...]

blank title

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...]
