Thoughtful Thursday

This week has been hard to get through. Let's see....first my car, then my dryer, now the ortho doc tells me it looks like my L5 disc is gone. Gee...I don't think there's much more, that is 3 after all so it has to get better right?  I was near to tears the other night when the dryer went and sang the woe is me to Leo, although he just looks at me like 'It's ok mama....we're in it together'. And then I saw on the news the marines who had no legs. And I said to are guys who don't have their legs and you're crying about a stupid dryer not working. I was humbled very quickly.

My ex boss talked me into going to lunch with her yesterday to AC Moore. The above pic is my 'haul' from there. I wasn't going to get anything, just look, and all of this yarn was on sale. can't take a yarn whore into a craft store that's having a yarn sale and expect her to walk out with nothing!!!  The ribbon was a quarter....that was my cheapest thing.

I started a cowl last night with the blue/green in the middle. I might frog it...I don't like how it's turning out. AND...geeze louise...I am so glad I'm getting my hair cut in a couple weeks. I crocheted a piece of my hair without realizing it and had to tear part of the cowl out and unravel my hair!! This isn't the first time it's happened (crocheting my hair) but this is the first time it's gotten crocheted that far without me realizing it. My hair is long enough that it's in the crack of my butt. I'm getting it cut when I go to FL, above my shoulder. That will be the shortest it's ever been since I was in the 6th grade. I normally cut it every 2 years when it gets to the butt crack. It's going to be strange but feel good at the same time. Long hair is a pain in the butt to keep. I can't put mine up because I get headaches, so it's always down and getting in the way and getting pulled and tangled. Leo has been stepping on it and pulling it quite regular lately when we are on the couch.'s warmed up a tad here in GA but it's supposed to rain. It's cloudy and dreary today. At least I don't have 4 layers on today. Only two. :o)

I hope it's only a 2 layer day in your little piece of the world! Stay warmy!


  1. Some one in Tonawanda, New York found a FedEx box on her porch a little while ago.Indy gave it a good "smell over" when I brought it in.

    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! I was going to send you an email but I don't have your email addy on the netbook and I wanted to thank you ASAP.

    Should I open it now or wait?

  2. Hi Kat,
    Oh my your week is just not going well at all! We have been at 3-layer days now for a couple of days reaching clear up into the 20s but the warm weather is supposed to dip again this weekend and we'll be at a full 4-layer, hats, boots, anything you can possibly put on and still move time again. You ended up with some really pretty yarn. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

  3. Make sure you donate that hair to a Locks of Love, or similar , program. Mine was just long enough this past august to donate it when it was cut . . ended up with an asymentrical cut . . back was just to the hairline and the sides were a tad below my ears. I wished it had been more of a bob, but someone is getting good use out of my "bobed" length hair and mine had grown out to a bob now.

    Stay warm!


I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
