(Quick name that movie!)

I had some strange urge to check out my blog stats just a minute ago. 95 hits today! Who in the hell has come over to check me out?!!!!! The most hits I have had in one day (before today of course) is 69! And since I have not done jack a squat over here lately there have only been stragglers here and there. Needless to say I am FLABBERGASTED!

So whomever you are and where ever you are come on back and post a comment. Let me know you are out there and what brought you here. You have all peaked my curiosity.

Now for the good stuff…

I HAVE KNITTING CONTENT!!!!!!!!!!! No pictures or anything. Just a little update.

Mom’s Calorimetry is done. Took me all of 2 days and I added 3 baby cables in the middle. Tammy taught me how to do them without actually making a cable. They came out GREAT! Sent it off to mom already though so I have to rely on her to get me a picture(Did you hear me Mom?! TAKE A PICTURE!!!)

I finished the blue and green pinwheel for Hadass. Sent it off to mom also so she could add to the package and then ship everything at once to Israel.

Purple and green pinwheel is about 50% done. Liad is not due until mid January so I have a little bit of time left.

Hooray for me gloves still need fingerless fingers, Forest canopy got frogged to death, Have several dishcloths that need to have their ends woven in, and I need/want to get started with my socks again.

Orly(my sister) got me some really lovely Kid Mohair in a pretty baby blue to make her a scarf with. She found it at the 4th Ave. St. Fair here in Tucson and paid way too much money for it. But it is nice and hopefully I can find a pattern that will suit her.

I also bought some pretty yarn from Yo Yo to make sure that Li’l Bit got cookies after surgery. It is a really pretty variegated red. I think that is what you would call it. I am not getting off of my tushy to go and look right now.

As for the rest of my life? Well…I have just been really busy I guess. I started my own Mary Kay business and am working very hard at that. It is going great so far and will only get better. So if you are interested in skin care or color then give me a holler. We have all new formulas, a new line of lip colors, and brand new mineral foundation out now.

Now if only I could find more hours in the day to get everything done…

Go check out the sale at YoYo’s place. Little Bit needs some cookies!!!!!!!

(Title is totally stuck in my head Sorry.)

I got mail goodies!!!!! Wanna see? Of course you do! My mail lady is off for the week so when the door bell rang (AT NAPTIME!) I was a little peeved. (ALWAYS let sleeping children lie! Thank G-d they didn’t wake up!) The sub had rung the bell and dropped this pkg from Alyson carelessly on my doorstep.

I behaved this time and actually ran to get my camera instead of instantly RIPPING the pkg to shreds to see it’s contents. When I finally got it inside the house and opened I was a little confused. I was expecting just some YoYo handspun (Cause I whined about how I am so broke and can’t afford her prices but want to play with her yarn so badly I can hardly stand it.)from the contest that I won that no one knew she was having(her included. LOL) But instead of just a skein of yarn I pulled out all of this…
DSC01821 This is definitly more than I was expecting. That blackish brown envelope in the middle there was bulging and heavy(well heavier than a card).

DSC01822 Goodies? What goodies?

Now my mommy always taught me to open the card before the gift but this time I did not behave at all! I went straight for what was obviously the yarn. Ripped the paper apart and took a good long wiff of this…..
DSC01825 Not such a great picture considering the lighting sucks at my house when it is like thisDSC01817 Here it is a little closer. I can’t seem to get the color right but trust me it is awesome!DSC01826 DSC01831 DSC01828 Is she naming this after moi? How cool is that! And how cool are these moo cards she made up? DSC01827(I just upgraded my Flickr acct so I can do all of the cool things that everyone else is doing. Just one more thing to play with online. HA!)

Anyways. I finally got around to opening the brown envelope(Joey had already gotten started on it while I was distracted taking pictures of the yarn.) and I got a little light headed. There was so much cool stuff in there! Look!

Speaking of envelopes. What is in this one? DSC01832 Didn’t she send enough already? Oh wait. It’s the card that I forgot about. Sorry Mommy.

DSC01839 Wow! She didn’t have to apologize! Of course it was worth it. I was never worried in the first place. I love the stationary though.

This is the back of it.DSC01838
