Blame it on....

On the rain?
Well it hasn't rained in awhile...
Well I guess you can blame it on me.

I was the one that did it...
I bought it...
And it came in the mail yesterday!

Ok I will tell you what it is.
I bought these.

This is not a very good picture, and to tell the truth you can blame Snow, because it was her post that pushed me over the edge.

So now I have the Wings of Fantasy Shawl pattern, Violets by the River, and the Tiger Eye patterns.

Now if I only had the knitting time. One day I will have the time to knit as much as I want. No homework, no distraction. Gee, sounds like I might be dead. Oh well what would life be like without distractions?

Till next time gentle knitters.

As Promised

This must be some kind of a record for me. Well as I promised here are the pictures of my Secret Pal gift.

First up we have some Wonderful soap. I had to beat my husband off of it. It has goat milk, and honey and Almonds. Mmmm, now the kids want more baths.
I also received a set of double pointed needles, with a removable stitch marker contained in a blue double pointed needle holder shaped like a sweater.

Next is some wonderful sock yarn. I am going to have to get off of my butt an just knit some socks. I really don't have any excuses, fear?

Here is a picture of the whole shebang. It really should have gone on top, but you get the idea.
There is also a pattern for socks, really no excuse now, and a wonderful candle. My family seems to think all of the packages belong to them now. I think they need to learn how to knit, don't you?

Knit Bits. What knitter can do without the daily word from other janitor's? This is wonderful. Yes, I opened it already. No, I didn't read all of them, just a few....It's almost 2006.

Last, but certainly not least, these stitch markers. Aren't they just to die for? They are blown, if I am not mistaken, at any rate you can't buy these in any ol' store, no sirree bob. I am truly touched.

Thank you Secret Pal. I have been lax on my blog updating lately, but I really am trying not to fail this bloody class again. I am scheduling this sucker out. I will try to get a post up at least once a week.

Talk to you all later.

Secret, Secret Pal

I received a package from my Pal.
It has some wonderful things in it.
There is going to be a detailed listing tomorrow. Right now I am so very busy, I really shouldn't be on here :D

I also hope to have pictures, if I can get my lovely husband to send them to me.

Thanks Secret Pal, Your are Great!

Time ticks away

It has been much to long since I last posted. I am really sorry about that.

I have been stressing, which doesn't help my migraines. So needles to say I have been having more. I have been to the doctor, and he has given me some medicine, that actually seems to be helping some.

While I was away I had a birthday. October the 9th.

I have failed, yes you heard that correctly, failed the first class ever.
The first in all of my years of going to school. Oh well I guess there is a first time for everything.

On the knitting front, I have decided to just do the mystery shawl. I have been putting it off, but I needed something to do that wasn't going to strain my already tired and stressed out brain. I am on clue 2. I will try to get some pictures posted, but we all know how I have been on that lately. Don't hold your breath, because I don't want to be responsible for you passing out.

Until next time.

Secret Pal, and boxes of stuff.

My secret pal sent me a truly wonderful e-card. I just want to say Thank You! It lifted my spirits and made my day.

I think our UPS man is getting very upset with us. We have had so many deliveries in the last week, well lets just say I feel we have a relationship. We are homeschooling our boys, well technically just Master C at the moment. So we have been receiving boxes upon boxes of school supplies. Books and books and even more books. The child is truly excited. It is great to see his face light up because a book arrived just for him. Well this has truly cut down on my knitting time, but it is worth it. He is so very excited to be in school, and we have better control over what he is taught and how.

Headaches still here,it was especially bad today. I was rudely awakened by a migraine at 2 am this morning, yes I have a Dr. Appointment scheduled, but not until Friday. I tried for today, no luck. I could call again for Wednesday, but all I want to do is go home and try to sleep for the rest of the week.

Well back to work,
Knit on!
