If I stayed off the computer...

If I stayed off of my computer, I wouldn't find more patterns. But alas, I have to use the computer for work and school, so I am forced :D to find new patterns. See how I snuck that in there/ Quite clever if I do say so myself.

Anyway, this is what I have found. A new bag pattern, and a shrug pattern that my boss loves. Now I just have to find the time to knit the shrug for her. I told her as long as I have a job, I will keep knitting for her :D. I think that is a wonderful compromise.

Well I am back to work.

I followed this time...

Ok, I have to admit, I do like some of these. I was happily browsing knitting sites when I ran across Laura's Thoughts. Well I had to know what flower I was.

This is my flower.

You are a Lily:

You are graceful, gentle, calm, and pure and
perhaps a little shy (though your shyness is
part of your charm). You are a very honorable
person who always wants to do the right thing.
Your calm attitude has a soothing effect on

Thanksgiving and a long Holiday

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We at the Jones household had turkey, dressing (cornbread of course), homemade cranberry sauce, hand mashed potatoes (ok, I used a hand mixer), green beans (fresh out of the can :D), rolls, and a sweet potato pie.

I think that was more than enough food. We actually had more than we could eat so a few extra people were the happy recipients of a Thanksgiving dinner. It is nice to be able to share with others. It is an affirmation of what we have to be thankful for. Although life isn't perfect and we may not have everything we want, we have what we need.

Well on to knitting. I have done some. Not much, as I have started an SQL class. I must read, as I do not know SQL. I am finishing a "My So Called Scarf". Slated to be another gift for someone on Christmas. I am also closing out the middle of the third pattern of the mystery shawl. The recipient would better use a shoulder shawl than a full length shawl. When I have finished it out and have it blocking I will take pictures.

Well off to working again. Wish me luck tonight. It is time to go to battle with the husbands physician. Why is it they can never make mistakes, but when you point it out to them it is still your fault in some way? Well I am not standing still for it today. Like I said wish me luck, we may end up looking for another physician.

Another scarf

I have found another scarf to knit. It isn't that I have a shortage of patterns already, nor a shortage of yarn. What I lack is time. One day I will have more time than I know what to do with. For now I collect patterns, and knit as I find the time.

Here is the pattern just in case you want it.

How was your weekend?

My weekend was Wonderful!

Shawna and I, that is my boss for those that don't know, went to see Joyce Meyer on Saturday. It was wonderful. You know when you can feel a breakthrough is coming in your life and you have a choice to follow the righteous path or the one of your choosing? Well I have a path to follow, and it isn't easy, but then again if it were easy, would it be God?

Well I have to get back to work.

Till next time!

Well I took a little bit of time to do this one. Why? The answer is obvious, at least to me, I like Peanuts. I happen to Love Snoopy, but Marcie will do.

What character are you, or do you really want to know?

You are Marcie!

I Love Winter!

I really, really love winter. I much prefer the cold and the rain. I know many people would like the sun all year long, but this is my favorite time of the year.

Did you know they are going to add a month to daylight savings time? I don't like that, not that anyone asked my opinion.

Not much went on this weekend. I had an art show. I didn't tell you I am embarking on a new endeavor, not that I need anymore action items right now. Just call me a glutton for punishment. I am an art consultant for Ethnic Expressions.

Art for the mind and soul. I really have to find some time to update my side bar. I have links to other blogs I need to put up as well as some other things. One thing at time.

I have to check in at school, produce some work, so I can continue to get paid, and get my son's homeschool work together first.

So much to do so little time.
Talk to you later.
