Where have I been...

No where exciting!
I was sick with a cold last week, which means early bed night for me.  I am much better and no longer feel or look like death.  So that's a WIN!

Somewhere in the midst of being sick I became a Loopie Groupie!!  ::muppet arms!::

I finished my log cabin blanket.  Finally.  I still have to tuck in a couple of ends and lightly block it, but I'm still calling it DONE!

Upon searching the all knowing Ravelry, I've decided that all sleeves on the baby jacket look wonky.  So, I'm just gonna sew on a snap, add a decorative button and gift it to my little man in a couple of weeks.  :D

Other than that, I'm working on my Garden Grids & my second BSG sock...which might turn into my Caprica sock.  Fitting no?

I love that word.  I also love that that word will randomly pop into my head, well that and velociraptor, which I cannot pronounce unless someone says it first. 
Just being honest. 

So, it's snowing!!

That is all.

Someone hold me

So, my mum, is having a BIG birthday! 
She's wonderful, we may but heads alot, but I wouldn't be who I am without her.

So, in honor of this BIG day my super fabulous sister in law & I are throwing her a little appetizer & cake shin dig surprise.  We're still in the planning stages and already panic has set in, I have NO idea how to do this. 
And in case i was being too subtile there, I HAVE NO FRAKKIN' CLUE!
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 
No please excuse me whilst I go find a paper bag to breathe into.

I won the...

lottery....the yarn lottery!  That's right, I somehow managed to snag a skein of a certain coveted yarn from Germany.  That's right, Wollmeiser sock yarn.  Ya, I don't know how I did it either. 

Where there once were...

1 and 1/2 socks

there are now 2 balls

Hopes & Wishes for 2012

2010 was a bad year, looking back on it, I was depressed, not horribly so, but enough. 
2011 was all about healing myself, trying to make myself better. 
2012 going to be about nourishing myself.  (I'm stealing this idea from Lacylike, a blog I started to read a couple of months ago and who inspires me in little ways.)

I've started praying, reading again & yoga, all things that feed my well being. 
I may even try to kick my horrible caffeine habit, ok, who am I kidding, that will never happen, but I am going to cut down my 3 a day cup habit to 1 cup a day, as master Yoda says, do or do not, there is no try. 
I may even give 'Meatless Mondays' a go.  Now, I'm not going vegetarian or anything like that, I love steak far to much for that, but once a week eat something healthy, with no meat, I think I can do that. 

That is what I am hoping for myself for 2012.  What about you?

I hope ya'll had a wonderful New Years Eve!

I spent New Years Eve and New Year Day getting my geek on watching Firefly & Serenity.   Ya, I know, I'm a bit behind on the coolness that is Firefly, but I'm hep to it now. 

So far the new year has started off crabby.  I'm sad by this, because I so wanted to start the new year off happy & well, not crabby.  Being that we're only 4 days in, there's still hope!

Finally, I'm happy to report that I am on the last leg of my log cabin blanket that I started way back when.  Last side, sadly, it's a long side.  Like, knit a row and you're done for the night long. 

It's ok though, I have a couple other secret squirrel projects in the wings I can play with.  ;)

Nickie: Don't you think life should be gay and bright a bubbly like champagne?
Terry: I like pink champagne.
Nickie: Yes, that's the kind I mean – pink champagne. Now is there any reason why from now on, this trip shouldn't be pink champagne?
~ An Affair to Remember

And from now, that is what I want my life to be like bright and bubbly.

Happy New Year!! May your year be like pink champagne!
