Rambling

A post of random rambling.....

So am I the only one who didn't get the memo about how "someone" reduced the numbers of hours in a day so that now there is no possible way to accomplish what you want to accomplish in one day? I totally missed the memo but it had to happen. It doesn't seem to matter how much or how little I need to do or how well I plan to do this much or little...I never have time to get it done. I am soooo far behind on my blog reading...it is downright embarrassing. I haven't forgotten you all...I promise to get caught up.


Just because I cannot do a blog post without a photo...it drives me insane...I'm weird that way. I took this photo a few days ago...it's autumn....why the daisies and the bees? There should be lots of colors and leaves on the ground. This looks like Spring. Actually now...there is some color and leaves are falling. It's cold today and it's raining...not complaining. Just saying....

I have managed to get a lot of new dishcloth designs charted up and they are being test knit as I type. Most of them will be sets with a flat towel and a hanging towel. What I NEED to be doing however is knitting Christmas gifts. Of course, it would help if I knew what I was going to be knitting but I haven't figured that out yet either. :P I'm thinking something fast, easy...no brainer sort of thing.

My oldest daughter has received two acceptance letters this week from colleges she has applied to...YAY!!!! She's worried she won't be able to decide which one she wants to attend. I reminded her that she's blessed to be able to choose from more than one college...not all kids will have that opportunity. Just wait until she gets a few more letters...then I can really watch her sweat it out. lol

Skater boy had a good week too. He won 3rd place in the local newspaper's Halloween Story Writing Contest. He got a nice certificate for his efforts and his story will appear in the paper on Halloween.

The only other random fact I can think to share is that I finally got the buttons sewn on my little sweater for Ms Thang's baby doll. I wanted to post a photo but it's too dark for photo taking now.

I am loving this cool weather...it is awesome. I am drinking lots of French Vanilla Cappuccino which will most likely begin to appear in places I do not wish to see it appear. But it is cold out and cappuccino is a cold weather requirement.

And Brian...I promise to get busy with my lessons soon. All this charting has me cross eyed temporarily. :O) Thanks so much for the wonderful photos...it's going to be a big help.

Hope you all have a great weekend. TGIF!! Hopefully, I will be back soon with something a little less random. :P I just wanted to let you know I am still here.
Hugs!

You are not alone with the time thing. It seems to be getting worse with each additional day...never ever is there enough time for everything.

Great news about your daughter. Good luck with all the decisions coming up!! Congrats to your son...that's just awesome...he must be quite the story teller :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend ...hugs :)

Ahh she lives, lol.

I too am running out of time... actually looking forward to surgery cause I will be forced to rest and take it easy for a few weeks.

I need to get my yarn within easy reach NOW

Congrats to both your kids, how awesome is their life right now.

I was beginning to wonder about you! Glad to hear you and the family are well. I know the "too few hours in the day" feeling all too well! When you are ready to get into the crochet I will be here.

Congratulations to your daughter and mister skater boy! I imagine he is quite the character, and I'd love to read the story. Oh my, the kids grow up so quickly. Enjoy every minute. ;)

Um, those cappuccinos are just delicious. ;)
