Everyone is well and good. Happy even. Things are getting better, still no car......I work a lot. That keeps me from knitting as well. I need to get out and get some yarn for a project and sit down and just relax and knit....that sounds so good right now! Anyway, much love people!
Thank you, that is all.

I have read and LOVED HP & The Deathly Hallows! I really liked how things were wrapped up. I do have a question or two to discuss with Lesa! I'm going with a friend from work to see HP 5 at the movies tomorrow morning! I'm so excited! I'm sure you've all seen it already but well.....whatever! ;)~
Would you believe we won the lottery!!! Yep! We won $4 last Wednesday and $100 this past Saturday! Woohoo! One more number and we would have won $10,000! That would have been wonderful. But hey, I'll take $100!
Still no knitting. Sorry folks. Too busy to sit down and knit! I'm gonna be going through all my stuff here soon and I'll get something going after we move. Yep, we're moving again! I found a small 2 bedroom apartment/duplex/whatever, here in Chesterton. It's got a front and back yard. We get to keep our dog, Sarah.
That's it for now people. Take care! Happy knitting!

Things are crazy here, I'm not sure if the move is happening this weekend. Drama is going on in the family, long stupid story. And, I can't find my pouch of buttons to finish the these......
I've got the trim and straps finished on these babies. One slipper is done except I need to weave in my ends. The other slipper needs it's button and the ends weaved in and I can have Leslie give them to her teacher.......Where are those buttons! UHG! Sorry I won't have a finished picture to post of these things. They are slightly modified. I put an extra tow of trim around the tops and made the straps wider. I'm planning on making another pair shortly so I'll post finished pics of those.
Well I need to get a move on! Happy Groundhog's Day and Happy Imbolc! Oh and of course, Happy Knitting! Thank you, that is all!

Leslie loves them and insists that she now needs a new ballerina dress to wear with them! Which, ya know, is totally correct! Um, that was sarcasm......
And here we have a pair of Sweet Mary Janes in the works for Leslie's teacher....shhh don't tell her. It's a surprise. I'm casting on another pair tonight for one of our crossing guards. These are "thanks you were great, goodbye we're moving" gifts. The other crossing guard is male so I'm gonna get out and pick up something nice to make him this. I'm also making some Sweet Mary's Twinkletoes for Leslie's little best girlfriend and her older sister! So I'll be busy with knitting and packing this week!
And last but not least we have my "poor neglected sock". I cast this thing on sooooo long ago! It has sat in it's project pouch waiting for some TLC. Poor thing. So, I'm working on it too this week.
That's it for now folks! Happy Knitting!!!

Aside from Jell-O we had an exciting night last night! We took Leslie to practice with the Valpo Vikettes. She, and other K - 2nd grade girls, will be preforming at halftime at this Friday's basketball game! It's just so cute and crazy. I did this when I was little and I was a Vikette (flag girl) in high school! We took a ton of pictures, if any of them turned out I will post them! *crossing my finger here*
It also SNOWED yesterday and started to actually stick as the evening rolled in! By the time we left the high school we had at least a good 1 1/2 inches! Dave took me out to a far corner of the parking lot to practice driving. Several years ago I wrecked our little Ford Focus while driving in the first real snow of that year. I have been VERY VERY afraid of driving in snow ever since. I'm talking if I get stuck driving in snowy conditions I'm balling! I am seriously afraid. SERIOUSLY. So last night Dave had me drive a little bit with Bullet (our Durango) in 2wd and then he had me switch to 4wd. OMG I am NEVER buying another vehicle without 4wd! It's a world of difference. Since I was feeling pretty confident I drove us all home! Yay me!
On the knitting front I am working on the heel flap of my sock. I'll post a pic or two as soon as I can!
Happy Knitting Folks! Thank you, that is all!
Saturday, January 13, 2007
I'd like to introduce the newest member of our family. In keeping with the Lambert family tradition, we name all our cars, this is The Silver Bullet, Bullet for short. He is a 2001 Dodge Durango 4x4 and I love him! God, do I love him!
And here we have Miss Thang! Leslie with her new do, a bob! Doesn't she look cute and sweet. It's all an act, really! ; ) She is not feeling to well tonight, the dreaded cough has hit again! UHG! She is very excited about The Silver Bullet! She says "It's very comfortable!"
And here we have Davey, aka Little Man. Don't let that docile smile fool you, he is trouble with a capitol T! He likes Bullet very much cause it's a truck! Don't try to tell him it's an SUV, he's NOT havin it!
I have to say 2007 is off to a really good start. I hope I haven't just jinxed myself by saying that! But lets just look at the year so far......
-Moving to a nice big apartment at the beginning of February!
-Apartment is getting ALL new carpetting!
-Bought a WONDERFUL new car....truck....whatever!
Happy Knitting! Thank you, that is all!

Wednesday, January 03, 2007
~Get organized, seriously I am the Queen of Clutter.
~Get Motivated, I am also Her Majesty of Procrastination.
~Learn to have more patience.
~Get a sewing machine and learn how to use it. Without sewing through my finger, yes I actually did that in middle school Home Ec.
~Learn how to make jewelry.
~Learn how to spin my own yarn.
~Organize and catalog my knitting supplies and yarn, as well as my other crafty supplies.
~Finish the cross stitch witch I started a couple years ago!
~Start and finish a knitted blanket for Dave.
~Knit something super special just for myself, I don't know what that will be yet. Hmmmm?
~Finish up with my Belavi Facelift Massage certification.
~Get the family involved in some sort of activity we can all participate in.....horses, atvs......?
I think that's a pretty good list! Wish me luck!
I started a new book yesterday. Dave went to the local Barnes and Noble and he ASKED if I wanted anything. I have to say he's a good guy. Ya know, not many men will pick up their wife a romance novel. Or especially a romance/erotica novel! Hehehe! The last time he picked anything up for me the people behind the counter poked fun at him! Hahahaha! Anyway, Dave brought me home "Prince of Ice" by Emma Holly. He made sure everyone knew it wasn't for him. They said "of course it isn't" ; )~
Happy New Year, Happy Knitting! Thank you, that is all!
