catching up!

i got a cute new pink vaio for xmas! yeah!! my poor recently saved pc was sooooo old, ancient in pc years (almost 4!) Luv the new lil pink, just adjusting to windows 7!!! Hubby just got my printer installed and transferred favorites for me from the old to the new, and recipe files! all other goods are saved on my external now. i am so not a geek!! (but trying) knit a cute shawl from whimsical lil knits this weekend, blocked and drying. Starting a new one, a test knit for someone on ravelry, picked a fun bright sock yarn, 3 skeins!! (hope i have enough yarn) 30 per cent sale at the lys, alltogether under 30 bucks so happy! The enchanted stole KAL starts in just over a week, so waiting!! Don't know why i luv knitting lace shawls so much! Still luv socks too but been on a hat and cowl kick. Will have to get some pics for you all. Stay warm!! Weigh in tomorrow , will see how good i was truly, xmas and spiced rum/eggnog!!

Happy Yule All!!

i know, i have been so MIA! First my computer caught a virus, came in through all security and attached itself to everything, did i say everything cause it did! Took my hubby/geek almost 36 hours but he did it, saved almost everything!! Now so far though i have yet to reload my photos, so this will be pictureless. He did get me a new camera though! So been playing with it, so new compared to my ancient 6-7 year old digital (am thinking of seeing if the teen girl across the street would like it though as it still was a good camera, and would be free!
My mom came out to visit for 2 weeks, was so fun! We got numerous crafts done as well as a bit of shopping, hit some fun craft shows, even did a little walking. Of course the day after she got here our temps dropped into the teens and stayed there till the day she left, when it started raining! Oh well, we had fun!
Still in washington though that is still in the air. We will either stay here or move to vancouver island, it could be a few months till we know for sure. I have been good and been dropping some of those stress pounds i had gained when working, lol, sad i know! but it is nice to feel clothing getting obnoxiously baggy for a change!

Enjoy your holiday everyone! I will be posting more regular again with the new year!
