Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

I love working from home. I got up this morning and it was snowing. We have about 6 inchs and are expecting more, after the sleet and ice.
Did I mention not having to go out in it? But I really love looking at snow. My dream home has a room with lots of windows overlooking the woods. It has a fireplace and I can watch the snow while toasting my toes.
My real house has a hole in it. No joke, we got this house as a fixer upper and it is. We have been here about 10 years and we have fixed and fixed and she can still find something else to break, fall off, flake, leak, or just plan need. She is amazing. I love my house.
What I love is the back yard. I love seeing my dogs running, or in the case of Gizmo the Wonder Rug, standing in the back yard.
Gizmo the Wonder Rug is a shih tzu, chocolet in color and a bit over weight, well because rugs do not run, or even walk fast.
His loving wife is Georgia the Poodle with an attitude. And she has a daughter with the silver tounged devil from down the street.
Her name is Dharma the Crazy Dog.
They have long list of things that need to be done daily for them, and some things that need to be done from time to time. So today my job is cleaning the snow off of their bottom parts when they come in from the snow.
For this I went to college....and had a 4.0 GPA.

This is a sad post so it will be short. My granddaughter lost her baby and we are all heartbroken.

Friday, January 9, 2009


Today will bring snow to Northern Kentucky, and one more day of work before the weekend and knitting or crocheting.
I am waiting on news from my granddaughter. There is a test they are doing to see what is wrong with her baby. She went for her ultrasound and they found problems and did an amino and there should be news today.
I am praying for her and hoping that the news is good, but knowing that it may not be.
I am working on baby items for AC4C and it is breaking my heart to have to be doing this. I wanted to get Jen's baby blanket finished this month, and have put that away. I will finish the baby hats and booties I promised and then will go back to making my squares for the no kill shelter.
I also have a scarf on my needles for my "favorite niece in the whole world" Jessica. I made her mother one and she liked it so it is only fair I make another. I have new pictures to post and will try to get them up this weekend.
I am going to start saving to get the "baby suprise jacket" pattern that Elizabeth Zimmerman created. I have seen several made up and I am going to get that as a reward when I lose my 5%.
I am close. This is about learning to eat healthy and making good choices. And I have a new love, it is called brocolli slaw. It is great with spray salad dressing. It is great wrapped in a pita with chicken and spray salad dressing. It is great wrapped in turkey with low fat mayo. I sing the praises of brocolli slaw.
