Ten On Tuesday and Other Things

Ten On Tuesday's Post Today is "Guilty Pleasures"

Hmm.....only ten?

1. Pajama Day
2. REAL hot chocolate made with whole milk and shaved chocolate
3. Knitting all day....and letting the housework go
4. Reading all day....and letting the housework go
5. Going to a movie in the middle of a week day.
6. Taking a long, hot bath.....usually accompanied by a good book.
7. Manicure and Pedicure
8. Eating good chocolate.
9. Wasting time on the internet
10. Shopping for yarn

FINALLY......cooler weather....Frost Warning a couple of nights ago...and it is just October...and this is ALABAMA!!!

When I saw the weather

report I rushed to the sock

drawer and pulled out a pair

of socks....

The green wad of yarn is my

Sugar Maple Shawl. Probably finish with the lace

portion tonight and start the ruffle tomorrow night.

My sister and I wait breathlessly each Fall on who will find the first Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer....

I won this year...
picking up 8 bottles (on sale).....only to be VERY dissapointed!! Despite a phone call to the manufacturer, stating that there have been no formula changes from previous years....there is a most DEFINITE change in the taste and smell. As in you can no longer smell the peppermint once added to your cup of coffee...and there is only the faintest hint of peppermint taste.

There may have been a tear or two shed............we do love...or loved this stuff!! Sniff, Sniff!!

Whiskers On Wednesday

This is Heidi's first
cube.....she has spent
countless hours running
across the floor and
dive bombing in through
a hole and rolling from
room to room!

She has been on the attack
several times.

Playing until she passes
out without
an ounce of modesty.

Best $3.77 I have ever spent!

It's Been Awhile

It's been awhile since I have regularly posted....lot's going on for the past few months.

A big thank you to all my wonderful friends that have contacted me over the past few months. It's nice to know I was missed...not that my blog posts are very exciting!! LOL!!

I had planned to attend SAFF this year, had a room reserved but due to a family illness, was afraid I wouldn't be able to make it so I cancelled my reservation. Family is wayyyyy more important...and there is always next year!!!

Where to start:

I made a last second decision to join the dishrag tag this year and glad I did!!! I received a lovely pkg!!

In between times, there has been some knitting:

Fleece Artist Yarn

K3, P1 pattern

Finally got yarn ordered to finish this cardigan/shrug

Claudia's Handpainted


Vanilla sock

I have completed two other pairs of socks, will have to get them photographed.

Many, many thanks once again for everyone's thoughts and prayers during my Father-In-Law's illness and subsequent death. It is nice to know there are so many that care and I have truly appreciated all the EM!!
