Happy Friday!

I hope that everyone has a nice weekend! Lots of pools being opened, so lets all be safe... ok?

Gotta take Dad to to the Dr. today. Mom has been pretty sick, and I am trying the best that I can to help them out. The in home / weekly nurse took his blood during the week, and the results didn't look to great. He is really weak, and starting to fall all over the house. He refuses to use his walker, and thus almost fell through the glass coffee table... which should be removed. I'm not sure how I am going to handle taking him to the Dr. by myself, but it has to be done. I don't know why the fuck they make you come in when you are so weak! What happened to home visits??

Hopefully both parents will be ok enough for Pete, and I to be able to sneak away for the day to the beach on Sunday. The way that things look, I'm not so sure. Keeping my fingers crossed cause Pete really needs a break as well. Maybe we'll be nice and bring the kid. She has been working with Daddy all week, and he said she is a terrific house painter, and alot of fun to work with... so maybe we will have someone to hand the business down to in the future. We do gutters & painting if I haven't mentioned it already.

Well I am out of here for now. Going to work on updating the sidebar a little more. I may change the template soon, cause the green is starting to get to me. All depends on how much I get to sneak on here. Can't get online when hubby/Pete is home. He hates computers! Well atleast I have it to myself, so I really shouldn't complain.

Once again as promised I hope to put some pictures up soon. I have a shitload of them on the camera, just have to upload them into the computer is all.

Outta here! Great weekend to all~

Crochet & Gardening!

I'm feeling so much happier now that the sun is struggeling to reappear. The sun feels so good, that I am getting very motivated to do things around the house, and outside.

I am working on the sweetpea shawl still, with the encouragement, and nudging from my friend Karen. It is halfway complete, and is starting to look the way it is supposed to. I just didn't like the way that this starts off so lumpy. I think it is the stitch (dtr). Anyway it will make a nice birthday present for my daughter in July. Also made some of Natalie's econo bags. Very easy, and useful. When I post pictures (I know) you'll see what I mean about them being very useful for anything you carry.

Been doing a lot of garden shopping lately. Now we have to get all of these beauties into the ground in between all the rain.

Ok out of here for now. I'll post more very soon. I know that I am a bad poster!

Monday... Monday!

It was wonderful last weekend. I did talk the hubby into going to my favorite flea market in the world!

It's always a great thing to meet a fellow crafter who is willing to spend some time chatting. I happened across a couple who make these fantastic candle holders. I've seen something similar to what they were selling in magazines, but upon interviewing them I could tell they were the real deal. Always a skeptic I am. He actually blows the glass that hangs into these decorative metal baskets. Very beautiful... I had to buy from these folks because no one was appreciating the handmade items that they were selling. He took time away from his lunch to talk with me, so I said here consider it my treat for the meal.

It really pisses me off that no one appreciates something that is not mass produced! I guess that is the reason that I don't do my stained glass that much anymore. Well actually I haven't cut in a while.

I'm really into crocheting lately, and am working on a few new things. I know that I have to pick up the camera, to actually show some stuff off. I just hate all the editing bullshit that goes along with this.

Step Dad is not in the greatest mood still, but I guess that is to be expected.

I will post more when I feel like I have something interesting to share. Right now I'm going to take a nap with my sweetie cause he came home early today!

Peace out to all~
