Let Me See....Talk About The Weather?!...Or Something Else?

     Do I wanna spend my quiet Sunday morning, and my first words to YOU talking about the weather?....No! But WOW!! Just looking at the weather reports across the country, is like some kind of wild ride at a broken down Amusement Park!! LOL
      Out the window, here in Holyoke, it "looks" like it's just beautiful out. In the backyard I can see that there's a light breeze in the trees,....O_O and a fox! WOW!...{Sorry, I wasn't fast enough with the camera to show you.}...but there's also a cascade of sun everywhere...It looks just like it did yesterday...But wait! Yesterday's pretty-looking weather was deceiving!...It was cold!!! The kind of cold where your fingers look like all the blood has rushed out of them, and you just can't get your hands warm for nothing! O_O
     It appears that these strange weather patterns are happening all over the world too. Do I dare say that it looks like some kind of 'celestial phenomenon'?! O_O ... Okay. That may be just what it looks like to me! LOL...At any rate, it's not the kind of weather that you wanna put your kitties out in!...

       In fact, it might be the kind of weather that makes you open your purse and see if you have enough money to buy a big coat! ^_^ ...Oh Well, it's not gonna discourage me! Sun or no sun, coat or no coat, I've had a pretty good weekend. :-)
       I sold three men's boutonnieres! :-) ...

       ...I sold the two above, and the red and black one I just listed! :-] ...

        I was kinda happily flabbergasted!...Why boutonnieres all of a sudden?!...Then hubby reminded me that it's coming upon wedding season....Ohhhhhh! Yeah. I forgot what time of year it was.....I was thrown off by the WEATHER!!! LOL

      One of the other things I've been doing this weekend is working on a new kind of crochet necklace. One with layers of different colors. I shared this one, as I was making it, on Facebook this weekend...

       The above photos of it was what it looked like prior to the backing and button...Hmmmm....what button would go on here?!...

        ...An old recycled button with some 'Ugly Wuglyee' character! :-) ...

       And I didn't stop at this one....of course! ^_^ I made a few more, and sewed the buttons on before I put the backings on them...

        All three of these are still kinda curling around the outer edge, because they don't have backings on them yet. That's what I'm gonna do today...And put necklaces on them too.
        The only other one I worked this tiny one...

       This is the tiny leftover flower from the pillow cover project....Yep! Still working on that too! :-) The rest of the little flowers are getting sewn on, but there was no room for this one.'ll be a necklace instead! :-) I'm making a backing for it today too...And I'm gonna list this necklace in my Wuglyees shop...

         I have to keep my happy mood going somehow, right?! ^_^ Clearly hubby's breakfast of scrambled eggs and oatmeal is not gonna do it!!...Seeing those eggs mixed up with my oatmeal was trying to take my emotions in a whole other direction! ^_^ But No!....NO!!! :-) ...Have a good rest of the weekend Everybody! :-)


Frustration, excitement,
Great anger, Pure joy!
Deep sadness, elation,
intent to annoy.

Loving, disgusted,
triumphant, afraid.
Affection considered,
uneasiness weighed.

Cheerful, proud,
optimistic, despair.
Euphoric, in anguish,
gloom hanging there.

Emotions experienced,
the good and the bad.
Without feeling, sincerely,
what life have you had?!

You need hope and peace,
kindness and love.
An unemotional life is
Not much to speak of.


  1. Hi!
    I like the poem a lot. It spoke to me...
    I'm glad you sold some of your boutonnieres. Congrats.

    1. Great Priscila! :-] I like it when I'm not the only one that can get something out of my words. ^_^ Thanks for letting me know...And thanks about the boutonnieres too!...How are your pillow covers doing?!

  2. Glad to hear that you've had a few more sales from your shop :) I'm not surprised though your stuff is amazing!

    1. Thank you, Jo. :-] And you may not be surprised, but I'm always amazed that they actually like it! LOL I feel sorta like Sally Fields at the Oscar awards:..."You like me. You really like me!" LOL
