This is 52!

 Hey everyone!  How are you?  I am great....yesterday was my 52nd birthday and Paige (and family) took me bowling and out to eat.  We had a fabulous time (even if I lost).  I did not get a picture at Olive Garden....but I picked italian and it was delicious!



I did some meal prepping this week....it wasnt terrible, but it wasnt the best either...LOL!



Jackson is doing okay, but he hates his cone....However, I caught a pic of his sleeping with is tongue stitcking out (Please excuse all the dog hair on the rug, I had not vacuumed for a couple of days but did not want to miss out on the pic), and one of him enjoying a little bit of the outside (I only let him out under supervision, because no running is allowed...yes, I know I need to mow..the chores never end).




My parents gave me some $ for my birthday and I happened to see this pic on Ravelry's home page....

This is Natalie's project....it appears she is the owner of knitting off broadway.  So I immediatley ordered the yarn with my bday $ and I am going to TRY to do this colorwork.  Wish me luck.





Other than that....I have been working on the 2nd girl blanket for Paige....her first baby shower is this coming Sunday, the 2nd of March, and then she has one on the 9th and one on the 16th.  Since she wants me to come to all of her baby showers, I want to have one blanket for each shower.  This one is finished (sans weaving in 2 ends)



That is about all I have this week.  Have a great week!

The Shin Bone is connected to the Thigh Bone!

 Hey everyone....do you remember that Skeleton Song Dance....or am I just aging myself:


Dem bones, dem bones, dem dancing bones.
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dancing bones.
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dancing bones.
Doin’ the skeleton dance.

The foot bone’s connected to the leg bone.
The leg bone’s connected to the knee bone.
The knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone.
Doin’ the skeleton dance.


Well, last week I told you that Jackson was limping...and he had a vet appointment the following day (Valentine's Day).....turns out he tore his CCL (the equivalent of an ACL in humans)....so his shin bone was no longer connected to any bone and vice versa.  :(


He had to have a TPLO surgery to repair it....my poor baby.  He has a 10-12 week recovery ahead of him.


Waiting at vet

I do not like my cone!


Mommy got me PJ's to give me a break from my cone:


I think this might leave a scar.....but it will be covered in hair!


Please send him so good healing vibes!


Darlene got me the most awesome bag for my birthday....yes, it is a bit early, but I love it.  It is called a Bogg Bag and you can get all sorts of accessories and stuff for it....I love it (and it is huge which is awesome)!  Thank you Darlene!





I got February's Yarn for the blanket club...I love this color!




I got some pom pom yarn I ordered on Amazon....ths is a little bit different than the all the Hershner's pom pom yarn I bought years ago....this one is actually thicker and fluffier!  Of course Paige needs a PINK pom pom blanket for her baby girl!




Elizabeth got me the cutest stitch stoppers that look like my baby, Flower!


That is all I have folks.....Have a great week!

 Hey....How are yall?  I am well.....I have only been working on one thing this week......my new No Frills Cardigan




Now the only other thing I have....is to share silly Flower pictures, I have no clue why she likes to get on the table...she is my only do who does it to lay down.




Here she is smiling in her sleep... I love it when she does this!


Jackson woke up with a limp today....so we are going to the vet tomorrow....I hope it is nothing serious!  Pray for him!



Have a great week!

One Down......so many more to go!

 Hey everyone....How are you? I am well....I have finished a baby blanket.....it is kinda weird how many blankets I have started.  I live in one of the warmest places and we rarely ever have a winter.  When we do, it is like 2 - 5 days long...but I have so many blankets on the needles or hooks....kinda crazy!


Anyway, here is number one for my granddaughter!



I also swatched for the No Frills Cardigan I told you about last week.




I got a great pic of my son and his daughter, Celeste....gosh she is getting so big....and I will have a newborn granddaughter soon.



Here are my parents at my nephew's engagement party I told you about a while ago.  I did not get this pic, but I think Sean's fiancĂ©, Leilani, posted it on social media so I could snag it.



Lastly, I got a new cup.....it is my new favorite. I have 2 or 3 Stanley cups and I do not know what the big deal is about them....I actually like the lid on this hydroflask way better....but I am a straw girl, I do not like to drink out of large mugs/cups without a straw.....I think this will be my new motto....who knows, I might even turn into a nice person....LOL!



Well, that is really all I have....I leave you with the greatest picture I saw on the internet this week.....sooooo cute!
