Just a few things have happened...

Let's see... I had a birthday, yep I turned 29 again and again!!
and I must say, I had a lovely birthday. My hubby and family made it feel real good.
Then Thanksgiving came around and we celebrated with a nice quiet meal, played some Scrabble, then ran out and caught a movie.

Randy and I out on the town on my birthday.

Konrad winning at Scrabble.....

Actually got a little help from my boys :)

Making my first Pecan Pie here, it turned out pretty darn good.

children no more.....

It's true, I no longer have children
They are considered 'Adults'
Here is a picture of my boys at "18"
And here is a picture of the soft alpaca hand warmers that i sent my daughter, along with her 'skull' jewelry.
My knitting mojo has s l o w e d .....
I've only finished one of the 4 clogs i need to make...
Striped Sweater sits dormant...looking to summery for me to finish now...
A started a beret, but since its on #1 needles it doesn't move very fast ...
Maybe happiness would entail 'starting' a new garment....
I've got one in mind, but would IT ever get finished either?????
Stay tuned

Can you tell WHO is dormant during the cold months??

Oh me oh my.....this is not my favorite time of the year....
I know that all this leads to the upcoming holidays and they overwhelm me. And on top of that I have to have a another birthday! Por Que ????
Somethings are just Rude.

So the last of my children turned 18 and now my family consisted of all adults. I thought this day would never come. I can't wait to be a real empty nester and downsize. But will the housing market let us do that as soon as we want??

Wouldn't it be wonderful to move to a year round Warm Climate?! Maui comes to mind. IF it was affordable....
Would I get tired of warm days ALL the time??
Would I tire of seeing green grass and colorful flowers ALL the time?? Would I really grow tired of spending my days outside in the sunshine???
Just think, you would be wearing next to nothing everyday... so you wouldn't cover up your body in the cold months and let it go to pot!!!!
Hell, that's worth it right there!!!!
That's it, I'm saving my pennies from here out :)
