Had to bring Spookie into the vet..

Spookie has kidney failure... but since he is partly feral.. it makes it hard to give him his fluids and meds.. with this heat.. he really got bad.. so we brought him in.. he is staying there to get treatment for a few days.. and then we will decide on what we should do.. his levels all have gone up noticeably..

Am down about this.. as to me he isnt feral.. just when we need to give him treatments..

Too Darn Hot!!

Just got back in from fertilizing and watering my garden, and hanging a load of clothes outside.. it is unbelievably hot.. they say it is 90 degrees.. but that is at the airport.. which means it is probably at least another 5 -6 degrees hotter here.. I am not having a good time of it.. lol.. am sure alot of people are saying that.. thankfully we have air conditioners both up and down..

One thing this heat is doing.. is it is really making my crops grow like crazy.. my peppers, tomatoes are doing the best.. also got some eggplants growing and cucumbers.. picked a few zucchini today.. unfortunately also had to pull out 3 dying plants too.. sigh..

The heat is definitely affecting my cats.. one of my sick cats (he has kidney disease) really isnt doing well.. we had to go back to force feeding him.. he already is on two meds and fluids.. I am really hoping he bounces back..

I did get some crocheting done last night... finished off a birthday gift.. and working on an order of hanging towels.. I was suppose to go and mail orders today.. but they are going to have to wait another day.. cos I just cant convince myself to go back outside.. and especially get in the car..

I hope to get a good blog entry done tomorrow.. not sure cos I have a dental filling tomorrow.. ugh.. and now also may have to go and treat a sick cat.. sigh.. sorta always feels like my TO DO LIST gets longer and longer.. like I said.. never bored..

I made this with some vintage Dazzleaire yarn in a pretty lavender.. and edged it in a variegated sport yarn (pink with tiny hints of bright blue, yellow, pink, etc).. and has a lavender button.. I found the basic pattern and made alot of changes.. one.. made a shell bottom.. and shell edging.. thought that was pretty for a baby.. I might make a few of these in 3 months size for sale.. no idea yet.. busy with a few Listia orders right now.. for sachets and xmas ornaments.. pictures coming soon..

Gardening - Zucchini

 They started off so well.. as you can see in the first two photos.. those were from late June.. but by now.. they are covered with little white spots.. I am almost sure it is due to the dead tree next door with the mold growing on the branches.. but nothing I can do about it.. since it isnt in my yarn.. maybe trim the the branches that at least our in our yard for next year.. we got zucchini growing.. but who knows how long before the mold kills them off.. Just keeping them fertilized.. and hoping for the best.. left the newest ones large so you can see the mold.. sigh..

KrissKross Dishclothes

I have been working on making a few dishclothes to put up for sale. just to show other colors besides the navy and white ones I have up on Etsy.

Right now, I am working on KrissKross dishclothes.. I make these in Simply Soft yarn as it feels cottony, but since it is acrylic.. it doesn't fade, shrink, and it also drys really fast.. as compared to cotton..

I can make these in your choice of colors.. if you are wondering what colors I can make.. go to Caron and look at the Colors! You need to check regular Simply Soft, Simply Soft Heathers, Simply Soft Paints or their Jumbo colors..
Here is the Link to Caron:


I can make these for $1.75 each.. or 10 for $1.50 each.. When you order 10 of similar colors.. you save $.25 per dishcloth.. which is a nice savings.. for more info.. drop me a line at

Want to see what we got ourselves??

 We have been saving and saving for a new living room set.. as our old one died a total death.. hey it was older than the hills.. My boyfriend is a fan of Craig's List and looks for great bargains on there and again found us a heck of a bargain.. someone had a wonderful living room set and a 60 inch TV for sale that he needed to sell fast as he was moving to FL for a job.. hence we were lucky enough to get it.. Best part is both couches have motors and you can control your positions for comfort.. needless to say we are delighted..  These pictures are from his house not our (from his ad).. I will be taking pictures after we finish painting the living room so you can see how it looks in our place..

Tired today.. but just wanted to drop a note..

I just figured I would drop a line and say hi.. I should be doing sales stuff.. but to tell you the truth I am just too tired.. think a night to watch TV and crochet would be in order.. if I can stay awake.. lol..

I just wanted to remind everyone that I do dishcloths in Simply Soft yarn.. soft, like cotton in texture, but drys a lot faster and doesn't fade like cotton..

I currently am making a few for sale.. in a variegated ocean blues/green blend.. trimmed in yellow gold.. and finished one in yellow gold with a ocean blues/green blend.. I should have some pictures soon.. I previously made some for a bridal shower.. here is one that is in white with a navy trim..

You can order these in your choice of colors.. for $1.75 each.. if you order 10 or more in the same blend of colors.. they are only $1.50 each..
