It’s F-ing cold!

I'm sorry for the implied expletives, but you know, I feel that captures the true essence of how cold it is and how I feel about it. Our temps for the last few days have been somewhere around -25F. That's actual temp, people. I'm not even telling you about the wind chill. My mom mentioned […]

Who ordered a pitcher?

This was one great weekend! The weather is getting so nice that I haven’t been spending much time knitting, but I have been having some fun. There is a bar in downtown Plainfield called Moe Joe’s–it’s constantly Mardi Gras there. Well, without the flashing…But they have some good Cajun food! I had a crab cake […]

Well, I had my lasik surgery on Friday, so I was resting all weekend. I didn’t work on anything but adding to my sleep. I have to say that I am loving not having to wear glasses! I freaked out a bit while the procedure was going on, but that was due to my over […]

A little bit of inspiration

I really had nothing to write about today until a friend sent me a link to a video to watch. I think this is a pretty awesome speech:

Happy almost Friday!

I’ve decided what I am going to bring with me to knit on the plane to Vegas. The babies that I made the Bears hats for have arrived, and I still need to complete their booties before their christening. Auntie Jenn decided on the Old World Felted Booties for her little nephews. I figure I […]

It’s a small world…

It’s amazing what a small world this is. It really is. I recently met someone that went to high school with another person I know. It’s funny how you happen upon these things. It kind of takes you aback a little. It also makes you want to find out more about how each person was […]

No Makeup Monday

I am exhausted, thus no makeup. This weekend was very busy, but good busy. Saturday I spent running around picking up gifts and interviewing Yoda’s potential new brother. My mom’s doctor is looking for a good home for her step-daughter’s pug to go live. He’s two years old, all black, and so full of energy. […]

Back to School….er….work….

Yes, I am back to work today. Damn. I really needed more time away. I sooo did not have enough time away to say, "yeah, I’m bored…let’s go to work!" So, I did get TONS done. I changed my name. Fun stuff there…and I’m still not done. I just did the big things like Social […]

Next Project: Ark!

It’s amazing how the weather is so unpredictable. Last year at this time trees and plants were dying everywhere because there was no rain. This year, we have more than enough rain! This weather is good for one thing — sitting at home and knitting! I hope everyone is surviving in this horrible weather and […]

Loose Ends

I know I have been behind on posting this week, and I am sorry for that. I’ve been taking the train into Chicago for some training classes, and let me tell you, I have no idea how people do this every day! My commute is 4 times what it normally is to come into the […]
