Ha! To You Mr. "Job"!....I Stole Me Some Anyway!

       I'm happy to report that my thieving skills are intact!! ^_^ My mother would be so proud!...But before you go and think I've gone crazy or something, let me clarify that I'm not talking about thieving or stealing anything tangible! That's something I WOULD NOT do!...What I stole was time! :-)
      I talked on my blog yesterday about how hubby and I weren't gonna get to have our 'virtual date night' because of the demands of his new job route. But....Aha! "Take that! Mr. Time Stealing Job!!"...I stole some time late last night to have my date with the hubby anyway! :-)
      It was waaaaay past the time my stomach should have been digesting Chinese food and Fig Newtons, but hey! sometimes you have to suffer for love! :-) ... The suffering comes the morning after you've had fried chicken wings doused in hot sauce, mounds of broccoli, bell peppers and garlic, white rice with soy sauce, and Nutter Butter and Fig Newton cookies.......x_x....dead stomach walking! LOL...But, on the good 'virtual date night' record is alive and well!!...along with my trick colon! ^_^
      The mugs in the header photo would have been good to have this morning, as a reminder of the stolen night...had I owned them! :-( Instead, we have some multicolored cups we've had since we were married almost 30 years ago! We're gonna have to have some green tea and coffee in them....sipped, not stirred....*moaning*...and reminisce about our stolen night........Until the rat race of getting the car repaired...and hubby's hair cut...starts again today!!...UGH!
     Whatever! I'm just gonna roll with the snow......Wait! Did I say roll with the snow?! O_O Yes I did....*sigh*...We've already gotten snow this morning. We're suppose to have snow 'showers' all day...Or at least that's what the weather channel said!...We'll see! O_0
       I'm not gonna think about it too deeply. I'm gonna nurse my poor flippy floppy stomach today, look out the window and watch the snow 'showers' put a dusting of the white stuff all over my backyard, and then get me a nap or two and dream pretty thoughts about green grass...

       This pretty pillow could help me do both things at the same time! ^_^

       Okay...before I take off, let me show you what I was working on yesterday...

         It's another flower!...But this one is a REALLY BIG flower! It's the modified one that I mentioned the other day that I now know how to do! This is how I should have done the flowers for my fuzzy coin pillow covers!

      It's bigger and has more petals than my smaller flowers. And it took waaaay more time to make because of it!

        I put one of my larger fun buttons on it...

        I also put one of my crocheted backings on it too...

        Okay, next pillow cover, here come the big pretty flowers!!! :-)

      Last, for today, hubby found another use for my crochet slipper necklace!...

      He found out that a car starter remote fits right in there! :-) So, he's gonna give this crochet slipper necklace to my sister, with her car starter remote in it, as a thank you for her letting him use her vehicle all week! :-)...That...and a tank full of gas,...and a newly vacuumed inside of the car,...and a freshly washed outside of the car! :-]

     I hope she likes it!

     You guessed it!...Crochet slipper necklaces...back on the 'To-Do' list! ^_^ I guess I better try to go and get some of this 'To-Do'...done!! :-)) ... Have a good day...and a good weekend everybody! Steal some time for it if you have to!! :-)

Time Goes By So Fast!

Time goes by so fast!
It seems to fly just like the wind.
Before you eat your breakfast,
seems it's yesterday again!

You visit with some friends,
go to work and cut the lawn.
Then you look up from your book
and face another fleeting dawn!

You're planning what's for dinner,
jotting down the grocery list.
You wake up from a nap,
and now you're looking at a mist!

Time goes by so fast!
It seems to fly just like the wind.
Make the most out of it,
cause it may not come again!


  1. I'm glad you had your date. It was nice of your Sis to loan the car, but also nice of your hubs to give it back in such great shape! (and a little prize for her too!) Take care of that tummy trouble and have a good weekend!

    1. Thanks Yaya! I'm glad we did too! :-] My stomach is still recovering though. LOL I hope you're having a good weekend!

  2. glad you had your virtual date, where did you guys go? Did you say snow?? stay warm my friend and nurture that tummy, chamomile helps.

    1. ^_^ I stole some time at home this week, Elisa. Between job and car I thought we weren't going to have one at all!! So, Chinese food and snacks late at night in front of the t.v. while watching taped video of "The Voice" was a stolen moment well worth it! :-)...And yes, I said snow! O_O But as it turned out, it was only a light dusting in the morning, that had disappeared a few minutes later...By the way, I'm all over the chamomile!! LOL
