Can you say Rain Rain go away!!!

Aren't they just the cutest!! These are Suger Gliders. Friends of ours raise them and we visit them almost every weekend at the Traders Village Flea MArket. They are so precious but since we will be doing a bit of traveling we will wait before we get any of them. But at present I am aching all over my joints are screaming in pain!! We have had about "6" days of on and off rain and the barometric pressure has been going up and down and my bones know it!! Usually we mow once a week but with this rain we hve strated to mow about every 6 days now because it grows so fast.

It was just sunny out and then over cast and then I heard thunder and then the rain I mean do TX have a "rainy" season now lol. The kids do not like it cause when they go outside to go potty they do not like getting their little paws wet. Then I have to dry their pawes off or else paw prints on the couch lol. Yesteday I wa in a cooking mood so I made a tray of stuffed shells and pu them up in the freezer and also lasagna too. Tomorrow I will do some chicken, this way just have to reheat things and not have to get the whole house hot with cooking. I have been knitting another litle bag to go with the tote for the exchange that I am participating in. I am so excited I can hardly wait for the next tote exchange to begin. I felted this tote I am giving to my pal and I am addicted to felting now. I found a beautiful pattern for a felted purse that I will be making for myself and if I like the way it turns out I will make it for my next pal. I am also doing some felting for holiday gifts. I figure might as well get a jump on the holiday season. This way I can do like last year and ship them all to my parent's house and then when they meet at my aunt's they'll get their gifts that way. Well I had the biopsy and ultra sound done on Friday and now have to wait till next week Friday to get the results. I would be telling a fib if I did not say I am a bit nervous , but I have faith that all will turn out just fine. Michael is taking it hard and I am trying to get him to think on the positive side of the matter. Well have to run have to get dinner ready. Well post again later in the week!

Ciao! CW

Tanya's gift done!!


I finally finished the Glamprye Shrug Woohoo Yeah Baby . I decied to give to my daughter for her birthday gift. I used Debbie Bliss Stella in 38009 colr. That is a nice rich red, the yarn is 60% silk, 20% rayon and 20% cotton. I will tell her to wash on gentle cycled or hand wash and hand to dry. I think she will look very smart in this color. Can't believe she'll be 28 at the end of this month! Boy how time flys by. It is raining and thunder storming like crazy today, I am surprised that our back yard did not float away. The pool over flowed 2 times so we lowered the water yet again. I am glad that it is an in-ground pool. We have special drains along the back of the house which drains it into the street. Well I have so knitting to tackle am working on a baby blanket, a throw for the doctor as a thank you gift and making some accessories as well. Hey a girls' gotta keep busy.

Happy knitting and have a great week!

I hope to have an appointment at the doctor's soon. So that I can have this lump taken care of and removed. My husband is so afraid that something will happen to me. I told him , have faith the Lord is in control. Well I am going to knit 15 more rows then go to bed, I should be tired by them lol.

So tired

Things have been crazy,I fisnished the shrug and the dish cloth I was working on. Now I am working on my sister Linda's gift and the tote I am making for my poartner in the tote exchange. But I havea been completely drained of energy since Saturday. I discovered a lump in my left breast. This is the second one. I had one removed in May 2005. This one fees like a grape at first but then it spreads out. Michael is beside himself with worry and there have been times when I have heard him crying. I told him not to worry that I am going to see the doctor and that will all be ok. It will be removed and it will be nothing. But having lost a sister to cancer and his mom is a breast cancer survivor did not make the news easy for him to take. So I might be off line a bit so I can concentrate on positive things and get the tote finished for the exchange. Y'all have an awesome week!!
