A few of my favorite things!

I love living in the pacific northwest! I have been lucky to live in various areas of the U.S.. Born on a VT farm, lived in the NH woods, on the coast in Ct & RI, then off to HI for years and now the pacic northwest. Above are a few of my favorite things about our area. The seafood of course! My backyard, the spring flowers in the garden and the numerous hiking trails around our area...happy happy!

Visit who inspired me to post about these fav's!

Check this out, a fun vote! Did you know spring was right around the corner? I had kind of forgotten about the technical aspect of that. I was reminded here though! My spring knitting goals are : to finish my lacy edge sweater, start working on the ski sweater (for next year), choose some strange winter hats (for next year for the ski gang), work on the silk sweater, cap sleeve .... and get organized! As well as socks that rock monthly and the dishcloth swap. I love knitting and it keeps me sane! Check back on the above link though and let us all see what your goals are as well. Fiberous gifts there!

Quiet, i know

Ok, know i have been a little quiet, my mom had called me friday afternoon while i was at work (she is 3 hours later than i am). It seemed like an odd time for a call from her and i was in the middle of doing a set of eyelash extensions on someone. I commented later to a person at work as i sat getting ready to check my messages. She asked what was up, i had said i was almost afraid to check my messages as i had a bad feeling that my grandmother had died. She was ill but we had just had the doctors give her a 4-6 month prognosis. Nothing out of the ordinary on the message though so.... next morning my phne rang as i was getting ready for work and hubby answered. After he came in i had told him how the day before i had been afraid to check my messages. He just gave me a hug and said that was my mom just on the phone and that gram had died the evening before. I know she lived a full life and having been so ill for so long that she is in a better place and with grandad now, i don't know if it is guilt that we have not been in close touch lately (i even had a card on the counter ready to mail to her with a pic of my daughter), that due to long distances i had not seen her in a long time....yeah, i guess guilt. I know my gram was not a perfect lady, especially to my mom when she was growing up. Gram i do have to say always stuck by me as i was growing up. I feel badly now though. It seems so many family members have been passing away over the last few years. lol, i guess we are all just getting older, sucks though, smile. So i may be a bit quiet here and there for a few days more. She was my last grandparent (as my dads mom and i have no relationship, sadly that side of the family disappeared years ago) So leapyear had an additional memory now. That's all....
