full moon

and hubbys borthday. The last one for him in the 30's number bracket! I have been off line a few days now and must catch up! Loving the dorky but gotta luv em holiday matter how corny some are.
We hung out al the lights and decorations today, i have the inside still to do, but the white feather tree and xmas village are up, did that just before the holidays! This will be my last week at the salon, then i have to head north to look there for a job, yuck starting over...again! But when we do move it will be better than a long commute.
Well, must get ambitious and catch up!

can you believe it's november 8th?

Thursay...i took the day off as my schedule was open. Saving gas as the prices keep going up...3.19 a gallon tuesday for the cheap stuff! Wouldn't be bad but my work drive is almost 1/2 hour each direction.
Knitting, cleaning, yarn dying today. Being domestic and productive. Oh yeah, working out too somewhere in there!


Visit: having a “Wayback Machine” contest - post what you were knitting a year ago and you could win some “knitterly goodness.”

TGIT ???

Well.....hubby left for canada today, daughter dear is playing on her pc with a game her boyfriend is also they are spending quality time together while apart!
Work has been slow but is slowly picking up. I think one problem is rent is a bit high, for what i get, and then the price of gas is high....making for a lot of overhead!


Visit Lotus Knits blog for some fun with her contest!

Lipo and yarn....ahhhhh!

Hmmm...went in for my non invasive laser lipo consult today. While i was initially shocked by the cost, even though after i stopped and figured it all out it was just what i thought it would be...hubby thought it was lower than he expected. I am booked for 3 procedures to start just before xmas! Talk about something to keep you on track through the holidays, lol! But this will be almost half of my inheritance. The family will not let me spend it on the family...but i am working on that! i would like to get my hubby lasik for his eyes and i would love to take both hubby and daughter on a trip to ireland as well. That would just about cover the rest! I feel so guilty spending this money on myself, but then, no diet or exercise has gotten rid of these few trouble spots, so........yikes! You are awake during the surgery!

Got yarn? Got good pattern ideas? Want to win some yarn? Check out this site... a good read as well!
