NOPE!...Not Today!

      Hello Y'all! :-) I decided to 'come up for air'...sorta kinda. LOL I've been crocheting my fool head off...and napping mostly. (OF COURSE!! Ha! Ha!) In the crochet department, I'm working on one of the four black scarfs on my custom order list right now!...The list which is getting longer and longer every day now...YAY! ^_^
      I was gonna come over here to the blog today and show you a few 'cuties' I found on Etsy, but...uhhh...NOPE! Not today! :-)) It's gonna take a lot of linking and writing and concentration, I don't have the ability to do any of that!!...Nothing!...except sitting quiet...and crocheting. :-] Thankfully I already did my studying for the meeting, and have my comment ready to share, or else I'd really be fretting! :-)
       The weather has changed some. We had our first snowfall of the season the other day...such as it was! ^_^ ...

      It was a whole....'dusting'! LOL It fell overnight, and by afternoon the next day it was gone! :-) I can't get too excited about that though....we're due to get some rain, or something, after midnight tonight! Ugh!
      Thanks to hubby's wonderful efforts at promoting my crocheting offline, I've got plenty to get excited about...and to keep me busy looking down at my hands, and not looking out the window! ^_^ Over the last week or so, up to today, I finished and sold a pink scarf...

      Finished a light pink and white scarf...

      The pictures don't do this one justice. It's pretty...and very soft! :-]

      I also finished this 'shades of blue' scarf...

      I didn't make this ont to sell though. I made it for my personal care assistant. :-] She's been so sweet and thoughtful that I wanted to make her something to let her know how much I appreciate her. :-]

      It's also very soft too!...and has fringe now too! ^_^ I did that as a last minute thing and forgot to take a photo afterward. :-))

      I sold a few scarves this week, and a couple of hats. And I'm working on some custom hats and scarves right now...Well, for this week anyway! ^_^ And...Oh Yeah!...My craft show is 'BACK ON' again! O_O Long story. I'll spare you. :-)) I'll just's gonna be in about 3 weeks!!!! AARGH!!!!!!! LOL.....That's why I haven't been online as much. I'm busy, busy, busy!!! :-]

      I'm even making some toddler hats and scarves!...I just finished this toddler's hat...

      ...and the matching scarf! :-) ...

      And this is my first attempt at a toddler-sized hat made in the style of my adult ones! ^_^ It's still awaiting a baby head to check it out! LOL Hopefully later today I'll know if it fits...If so, I'll have to get to work on a blue one just like it!...

      In other news, there have been no more coyote sightings. Only field-mice sightings. Ugh! They're making a nuisance out of themselves, and we're doing all we can to keep them OUTSIDE! :-)) Mice do not belong INSIDE the house!! LOL
      My mother-in-law is doing well, and so is my dad. Relations with my family are getting better daily...even though stresses in the family are accumulating daily too. SUCH IS LIFE!! ^_^
       Lastly, my book is being read by someone, and so are my poems. ***And my fingernails are being bitten OFF because of it! LOL*** I'll let you know if anything becomes of it!!!...Anyway!...I'll hopefully see you tomorrow with the latest Etsy finds....No Promises though!! Just 'roll with me', will ya! ^_^ And have a good rest of the weekend, Everybody! ♥

Sunday Mornings

Sunday mornings are for quiet,
and for music in your ears.
Not for fretting over business,
or for struggle, or for tears.

Sunday mornings are for worship,
or for time to just relax.
Not for schedules that need keeping,
or for dealing with the 'Quacks'!

Sunday mornings are for slowness,
sipping on a cup of 'Joe';
Getting ready for the new week,
when you have to 'Go! Go! Go!'

Sunday mornings are for birds,
crows and woodpeckers alike.
Or for pancakes on the griddle,
or for snowy morning hikes.

Sunday mornings are for color,
and for spousal 'chitter chat',
and for doing a bit of reading,
or writing poems that end like.....that!


  1. Good to see you! I LOVE that toddler hat and scarf!! What a wonderful idea!! Congrats on all the custom orders and the craft show too!! I KNOW you'll do well!! Thanks for showing off your creations! I, for one, LOVE to see them all! Have a wonderful day and week, if I don't see you around much! LOL

    1. Hi Cindy! It's good to see you too!! ^_^ It seems like I'm missing you all over the place lately!!...Anyway!...Thank you for the nice words about the toddler hat and scarf, and about the craft show and stuff! Hopefully I make enough sells to get us back in the 'flow' side of the chart! :-)) It's been as slow as molasses for quite a while, and we have to 'hustle' now in order to get the things I'm making seen. UGH! It's my least favorite thing about what I do!!!!.....But somebody has to do it!...Say hello to "SOMEBODY'!! LOL...Have a good week, my friend!!! ♥

  2. Your work is beautiful and I'm so glad you have the chance to sell it and show it off! Good luck with more sales! We're suppose to get 3-5in. of snow tonight so I guess winter is here...trespassing on Fall! I agree with your Sunday attitude..I enjoy the peace and quiet of a Sunday after Church with nothing more to do than enjoy a nice nap! Have a good week!
