Yesterday was super busy!

Oh my gosh yesterday was non stop! Hubby and I spent the day shopping :D I went and did Christmas shopping for 2 of the grandbabies. I had set myself a limit for each of the kids. Yeah, well that did not work. Once I got to the store that limit went right out the window LOL There was just to much cute stuff that they just had to have :P Over $500 dollars later I was loading up the back of the car!!

After getting all of that loaded into the sewing room I went back out. I picked myself up a firepit for the back yard. It is soooo nice. Once I have it together I will post pics. I also went and got a few Halloween decorations for the side yard and front of the house :D Nothing fancy just enough for the grandbabies and niece to enjoy. Tonight we will be having a smores party in the yard!

Today we will be doing some more Christmas shopping :D I am super excited to be getting it done so early, but bummed that my sewing room will soon be unusable do to all the stuff LOL OH! I am buying a Brothers embroidery machine today!!! Found it on Craigslist brand new in an unopened box super cheap!!! To bad the sewing room is going to be so full LOL

Ok, well hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Will try to get some more pics posted tomorrow :D

Not much happening today...

I finished the light pink and light brown scarf last night :D Right after I started a hat for my grandaughter. I have been working on it today and am cooking a small "Thanksgiving" style dinner for me, hubby and in laws.

I am still sitting in my pj's LOL Just am not motivated to do much today. I think I have caused some sort of damage to my left shoulder from all of the knitting I have been doing. I can barely lift anything with my left arm and if I move a certain way the pain brings me to tears. I know i should put the knitting down for a while, but everything I am working on or have to make is for Christmas so there is no slowing down. Off to check the turkey

Ok we have my messy sewing room with some of the fall decorations I am working on and somewhere there is the stuff for the grandbabies Halloween bags LOL. Then there are a pair of slipper socks...the first pair I ever made!!! Next is the crazy Romeo who is now 6 mths old. Then there is my handsome 2 yr old grandson Anthony and my beautiful 1 yr old grandaughter LeAnna.

Some of my crafts

Ok the top pink and brown is a scarf that is not quite finished yet...should have it done this evening.
Next are a pair of wool slippers that I made for my self.
Then there is a pink and brown hooded scarf that I made for my sis in NY.
Last but not least is a smokey blue scarf that is a X-mas gift.

Internet was down....

yesterday :( And I did not get anything done as far as taking pics.

I completely hauled out my kitchen yesterday. What I thought would take a few hours ended up taking all day. I had to keep stop working on what I was doing to do for others. Hopefully today I can get some things done for myself.

Today I have to take hubby to an appt. and he wants to stop at his favorite Chinese place to eat lunch. We get up late so our lunch time is everyone else's dinner time LOL When we get back I will finally get the material for the grandbabies bags in the washer. I also have a ton of laundry to put away and to clean our bedroom.

Trying to get this started again....

Life has been absolutely crazy here. My kids and whole family have gone to hell and been sicker than dogs for months now. One thing I have been able to do to help me keep my sanity is knitting.

My kids hopefully are getting their lives back where they should be. Hubby has been in the hospital multiple times since my last post and needs to go back in again. My in laws have been doing poorly. I am going down there 3 times a week to help them.

A few months ago we bought a puppy and we have a private trainer so that he can be a handi dog for my hubby. He is doing very well with his training.

I have been doing a lot of knitting and sewing. Tomorrow I will have to take pics of my finished projects and of Romeo the pup and post them. I have a ton more knitting and sewing to do for the fall season and for Christmas but at this rate with everyone being so sick not sure how much I will get done. I am also in the process of pulling the carpet out of the house and laying tile. Wish I had never started this...what a pain in the butt!

I have also started doing some preserving to give as gifts for the holidays. So far all I have made we are eating LOL Next month I will get the gifts done. Today on the way to my daughters for dinner I noticed that the road to their house was jam packed with prickly pear cactus that was full of fruit. I went on line and looked up when to harvest the fruit and how to make and can prickly pear jelly. Will be going back by my daughters later this week with a large box and heavy duty gloves....I am super excited to try my hand at this. :D

OH....we had horrible electrical problems with our house last month. It blew up or flat screen tv, hubby's xbox, my coffee pot and our cooler :( Had to have new wire ran and a larger fuse box put in.

Ok guess that is it....off to pull out all my finished projects to start taking pics :D
