Secret Pal Strikes Again!

I love Secret Pal. The members are a wonderful group of people. Yesterday I received a package from my Pal. In it was tea, yummy, and a tea minuet. There was also a very nice note, no my headaches have not gone away completely, but I am managing.

I had to fight the boys for the tea and the cup. They feel if it is mom's it must also belong to them.

Thank you so much, it means a lot to me.

I have a Pal

I have a new Secret Pal. I so like making new friends. I received a lovely e-card from my Pal. I just wanted to let my Pal know I liked it, and it made my day.
Thank you!

What is up?

Besides the sky and the sun and the moon.
Well lots and lots of school. Sorry I have been absent of late. I have really bad cluster headaches once every couple of years for a couple of weeks on end. This just happens to be that time, wonderful.

If that were not enough, when I don't have cluster headaches, I get migraines. Well my genetic makeup being what it is, that really sucks. Oh and I found my first grey hair. That isn't so bad really. My grandmother had beautiful silver hair, so who knows maybe I will to one day.

I have been knitting, just haven't been taking pictures. I am really bad about the picture thing. I need to work on that.

Anyway knitting...
I have, since my last blogging expedition, completed two of the squatty sidekick bags. The first was completed in the Manos my wonderful SP5 Pal sent to me. Thanks again Caitlyn, and the second is in Noro, don't ask me what color, the band is at home. I will have to go home and look. At least I kept it, believe me it is not common. I have too much clutter with two small boys to keep the unnecessary things in live. Just enjoy it.

My children, if you want to know, are getting so smart. Master J informed me the other day that Master C was antagonizing him. Can you believe it? Then he covers his mouth with his hand, because even he knows he is full of bologna. You have to love them, well you don’t but I certainly do and I am enjoying every minute. I think I am slightly jealous of my husband, who gets to spend all day with them. Then I wake up, and realize things are great just the way they are LOL. They are after all boys, and they need their father around more at this age than they need me.

I have a job interview today, wish me luck. It isn’t for anything I really want to do, but if I get the job it will be full time permanent with benefits. That makes the job worth doing, even if it is only for a little while. It could be the foot in the door I need to transition to another county job.

Well that is about it in a nutshell. When I can steal some more time away from work and school, I will report back.

Knitting news

I have finally taken pictures of some if my knitting. Sorry for the delay, school has been consuming much of my time. I also have pictures of my boy and his lost tooth. Master C lost his first tooth last Friday.

On with the show:
Note to Mom, remember not to take pictures of children while they are eating gummies.

This is my oldest baby. See the new hole in his face?


And I can't show you up close pictures of one if I don't show you pictures of the other. So without further ado here is Master J.









And for the knitting content we have Coronet, two versions.


This on I finished about 2 or 3 weeks ago, just didn't put up the picture.

And the closeup. I used Brown Sheep Wool in Silver Silver. It didn't take a whole skein, and it is too big for the intended recipient. So I am going to give it to someone with a bigger head.

This one I made with one Skein of Noro Kureyon. I purchased way to much of this stuff. I bought it for my Boss, she decide she didn't want it, no biggie. I can always use a stash enhancement.

It is the perfect size for a child.

I think I am making these hats inside out. I believe you are supposed to be able to flip the edge up making the hat smaller. Mine never come out that way. Just the way it is. I still like then though.

Nothing snappy

I don't have a snappy title for this one. I have been watching the happenings in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. It breaks my heart to see the suffering of so many people. I have family from all of those areas; I am praying for them all.
