Whats been happing here....

Hey everyone!!  I hope you all had a great holiday.  Things here were good. I didn't have to cook so that is always a plus!!  We had dinner with my family at my Grandmas and then with his family at his mom's.  Really good food and ate too much but what is new.

We also did the Turkey stampede on Thanksgiving morning.  My son and I did the 5K.  He got done in around 34 min, and I ran with a friend and got done in 39 min. It was a good time for me.  My daughter and other half did the 1 mile walk and then waited for us at the finish line.

Me and the kids put up the Christmas tree this morning when they got home from there memaws.  They always spend Friday nights with her and never complain about it. They are good kids.  We even wrapped a few gifts that I got yesterday shopping because I just don't like a tree with no presents under it.  I am hoping to get most of the rest of my shopping done next weekend when there are with their dad.

 I finished another scarf.  I made this one pink and put a sparkly flower and heart on it. I hope that my little cousin likes it.  I also made a set of coasters and a little white Christmas tree.  I was making a washcloth when  I started on the coasters but they I thought they would make cute coasters and that is how they were born.

 Well thats about all I have for now. I am working on a snowflake scarf but I am trying to figure out how to put the flakes together.  I hope that you all have a great weekend and I will enjoy reading what you all have been up to.

Thanks for stopping by,

Orange You Happy

Hi,  I hope that you all had a great weekend.  I just noticed on facebook that my good friend Amber has started a blog for her Etsy shop.  I have gotten her jewelry before and have 2 bookmarks coming in the mail for gifts for Christmas and I love them.  I hope you will take a look around.

Have great week and I will post some of my finished gifts tomorrow.

Finished a scarf for Christmas

Well I finished one of two scarves for my cousins daughters.  I showed their mom the pattern and she thought that they would love them one in pink and light purple.  I got the pattern here:

Here is the pictures of this one.

I used DC instead of single to get it done alittle faster and I messed up in the nose alittle but I think that it turned out cute.

I am putting this one in in the bag next to it with a color book and crayons.

Work is alittle crazy this week.  They are doing a big project out on the floor and we have inventory on Friday.  Inventory is my major concern right now because it is what I take care of but we are looking good to be set and ready to get counted Thursday night and get it all scanned in on Friday.  Hopefully we will be out of there by noon and I will have a little extra time to get the pink scarf done too.

Well I best be going for now but I will check back in soon.  Have a great week and can't wait to see what you all have made.

Back from our Sat. run/walk

Hey all!!

Well I just got back from our run/walk and the river walk.  There is a group of us that meet every Tues, Thurs, and Sat.  I made it  Thurs and Sat. this week.  The course is 2.04 miles. We did it in 28:54 Thurs and 27:35 today so we are getting better. I am the one holding them back because I am the beginner but They are great about helping me.  My other half said I was crazy because it is 27 degrees outside. I told him when you run you get warm.  It snowed yesterday for the first time too. It was pretty but I am not ready yet.

I hope you all have a great day,

I am off to more laundry and dishes and work on my sampler.

Wow... time got away from me...

I can't believe it is Wed all ready.  We have had so much basketball stuff going on that I haven't had time to post much, but I do hop on in the morning before work and read all that is going on with everyone.  I will tell you one thing. I am so glad that the elections are over.  People get really crappy and the ads just drive me nuts.  NONE of them tell the real story. Only the parts that make them look good and the other person look like a real ass.  Now we can go back to stupid, sometimes funny,  commercials selling us crap that we either don't need or aren't good for us and get on with things.

As for crocheting...  I have been working on my Christmas afghan. I have all the read squares done, all the green made, but still need the border on them and started on the white.  I thought about stopping with the just the red and green but when I laid it out it wasn't big enough yet. Here are a couple pics so far:

I really wished they sparkled well in photos.  Thats about all that I have been up to . I hope that you are all having a great start to holiday season.  Seems funny to say that already.


Oh.... if you are wondering why there are pizza boxes on the puzzle... I have been wanting to work a puzzle for a while now but I have 3 cats and they like to play with the pieces so i cleaned out 2 pizza boxes.. lined them with paper and put all my pieces in them that why I don't have to keep sorting them out and I just have to close the lid.  So far it has worked... we will see...   lol.
