Spoke too soon..

Got really busy for the last couple of days.. running around.. etc.  Ended up going to dinner at my Best Friend's house.. so didnt get much done then.. and alot of company.. which again throws off my schedule.. today I was busy making homemade spaghetti sauce, using the veggies I grew over the summer.. my plum tomatoes and green peppers.. smells heavenly.. putting my spaghetti on in about an hour.. so am spending that time working on the craft room.. have my last new bin of yarn to go thru (now that was a great gift!!).. once that is done, I can box up more yarn and even make more room.. smile.. room already looks roomier.. have to keep it that way.

I am working on the same slippers before that was suppose to be a gift.. got the slipper part done.. just have the animal head to do.. then I have an order to start this weekend..

Hopefully have pictures soon of the holidays etc.. if I can find time to get them done.. grin.. See you all tomorrow for my NEW YEARS message.. we arent going anywhere this year, so I am hoping to get some more stuff done.. bye for now..

Pre-Christmas Eve

Yesterday I went to my son's and DIL house for dinner and to exchange gifts.  It was really a nice day there.  I got to see my two grandboys and Jazz got to spend time with them.. grin.. they are totally crazy about my boyfriend.. LOL!! 

They had chicken breasts baked with flavored bread crumbs, asparagus, and tortellini... and homemade cookies for dessert.. then we exchanged gifts and talked.. smile.. we got a nice bottle of wine and a movie giftcard set.. and they sent us home with cookies.. smile..

Today, I was busy.. getting ready for Christmas and starting to clean and reorganize my craft room.. hoping to make it easier to use as it is really hard to move around in here.. grin.. figure once I clean it out.. it will be good for a year.. that is my end of year goal.. which is why I am not doing sales until after Jan. 7th..

Today for dinner.. we had a quick one. chicken legs, with tuna macaroni salad (I made it) and fresh butternut squash.. My boyfriend mad the chicken, and I did the rest.. he is making a blueberry cake for dessert while I work in my craft room..

Well.. back to work.. grin..

Pretty Christmas Wreath

I saw this pattern on one of my other Blogs that I read -- Two Sisters Two Cities.  I love this blog as it has the best recipes.. but that is a note for another day.. for today, they has a guest blogger who talked about how to make this really pretty wreath.. if I had time I would LOVE to make this.. guess I will save it for another time.. but I wanted to share it with you..

Here is the link directly to her page.. her blog is called Juggling Act Mama (and yes, I am going to get her blog too.. grin)..

Guess I was wrong..

I thought all my stuff was over.. but I guess not.. with all the last minute orders and holiday sale stuff going on.. I  just havent had a moment to breathe.. then I got a gallbladder attack that ended me up into the hospital.. just for a day.. but I guess my body is telling me to SLOW down.. so I am listening to it.. I will at least come one a week.. and try to get a couple days worth saved to send..

Also, during this crazy week.. my cat, Rachel died.. I suspected for a long time it was coming.. couldnt bring her in as she was feral.. and she hasnt been happy since my other cat, Blizzard died.. thought I would share a picture of her from the mid to lat 1990's..

Am on the mend...

Ended up with Bronchitis on top of the Shingles.. needless to say I put a halt to everything and focused on getting better.  Havent done much lately.. crocheting was hard as the Shingle pain was on my right side.. down my right arm.. and yep.. I am right handed.. working on a gift right now of slippers.. the same pair I was working on when I got sick.. finally got done with one slipper.  I will try to get some pictures tomorrow, if I have time.

Trying to get some items up for sale on Ebay and thru the Yahoo groups.. doing a little every day.. Guess that is all I can do.. Hope to stop back in tomorrow.. or at least on Friday.. see you then..
