I would like to start off my post by wishing Sherry a very Happy Birthday today! Hope you have a fantastic day, you deserve it, Sherry!
It is my day off and you know what that means – I worked harder than ever. I cleaned the kitchen and did a load of dishes, did 3 loads of laundry and cooked dinner for Hub. He works nights so our schedule is really screwed up. Oh yeah, I even had to go do the grocery shopping for the week, since I didn’t get to it this weekend. I’m not complaining. I wish this was my life everyday, but 4 days a week I have a job. Those are the days I come home and have the perfect excuse to just sit and knit.
Spencer was up to his usual antics. He loves to lay on cool surfaces so these marble top end tables are too tempting to him. He has an appointment with the groomer. It will be nice to see his eyes again. We are also hoping he will be a lot smaller.
One blogger friend that I am getting acquainted with is Alex of My Quill and Pen. She is a talented card maker and sells them in her etsy shop. She has been going through a dark valley of sickness and is now starting to recover. You should stop by her blog and say hi and wish her all the best. She is a sweetheart.
We were given a very sweet award this week by my friend, Patricia of The Unfinished Flower. It is always an honor to be awarded and we thank you Patricia for thinking of us. We would like to extend this award to these lovely ladies who I always look to for inspiration and friendship:
Deb of Garage Sale Gal
Kathy of Kat Collects
Victoria of Vintage Tea
Alex of My Quill and Pen
Time goes by so fast. It is 92 days until Christmas. I so want to hand make all my presents, I better get busy! If I can’t make everything maybe I can shop on etsy, where I can find other beautiful handmade items made by talented women who just want to make their living by crafting. I would rather do that than give all my money to stores. I don’t mean to preach, just am feeling like maybe I would like to give my money to other women just like me. Besides, sometimes I get really stressed when I can’t get everything done in time. There have been times when I had to stay up half the night knitting house shoes for Christmas presents.
