Yesterday was my Dad's Birthday !!!!

This is a picture that I drew of him.
"Hope your birthday weekend is filled with happiness, Dad!"

One Lucky Girl !!!

Here is what I have been doing for the whole week!!!!
I landed a part time job with Hobby Lobby!!!
It's a brand new store and I am getting to be part of the

whole creation of what it takes to build the store from the bottom UP !
From the moment I saw the big sign "Hobby Lobby coming soon" , I was hyped, I grew up in Ks and we had HL's there, but Idaho, too far west, TILL now !!!! So I was there on the first day of open application time, got called back the next day for an interview and was offered the job on the spot! Been working my arse off everyday since. I love everything new, and this place is full of NEWness!
I have the day off today and think I am due for 'starting a new project' today. So off I am to make that glorious decision... ahhhhh life is good and full. :)

Believe it or not!!

Yes followers, this post ACTUALLY has Knitting in it......
but first......
a cute little fast picture of Prancer !!!!!

Randy cleaned out his tennis bag (looking for his fav watch, which wasn't there) and Prancer got the best present ever!!!! tons of tennis balls!!! She could hardly contain herself. It's the simple pleasures people, learn from your dog :)

Okay, ONE more little picture...

My smelly Paper Whites have bloomed and I took a really close - up picture so you can smell them!!!! nice, huh?

TA DA !!!!!!! The sock sweater!!!!!
I pulled two different colorways of sock yarn to get this awesome variegated look. It's a delightful garment, and best of all, it FITS!!! It's a top down, my favorite, very easy. But it's very hard to take a good picture of yourself, so you will have to wait for that picture :( sorry peeps

OMG !!! if you click on this picture ^ you will be in fiber heaven!!

Delicious Dinner

First let's stop and smell the flowers.... preferably the beautiful Rubruin Lilies that my hubby brought home, mmmnmmnmm, lovely !

Now you will have to use your imagination with the next couple of pictures.....because I am not smarter than my camera, these indoor, food pictures where taken in 'snow' setting!! ha ha ha

Believe me, this food SURE tasted a lot better than it looks here!!!!
That is red cabbage at the upper left. And the meat is Brisket or better known from my childhood "Stringy Meat"!!

This meat just fell apart and the potatoes were buttery tasting and the fresh hot rolls melted in your mouth.....
So how did your imagination work??? or are the photos tooooo awful?
Maybe when I make a sandwich with it tomorrow I will use the right camera setting and all will be well. :)

I'll leave you with a picture of my little boys.....I used to be able to hold them both at the same A and baby B.

Happy 2010, baby!!!!

But let's not forget the Early 80's !!!!
This is my Awesome Brother giving his big Sister some Love.
Gotta love the dated couch..
and Fashionable EyeWear!!

My new Fav eye-opener of the day...

Sugar Cookie Coffee Grounds

I ground it even more for Espresso maker, 2 shots to 1/2 cup frothed chocolate milk with a tsp of raw sugar and a good squirt of dark chocolate syrup !!! Oh yeah, I know how to live. :)

Take a look at my bestest Xmas gift:

Oh my my my, I believe I am loved for sure !!! My hubby picked out the color, which suits me just fine for I am a Sunflower Girl.

Love after Xmas sales, I got these Paper whites at Home Depot for a couple of bucks. They will give me far more pleasure than that in the end!!!

Knitting?? you ask?? Let's see....well the fav LYS finally closed its doors yesterday. So naturally, I had to be there, purchasing a few last projects. One of which will be an old fashion hot water bottle cover.
