Still Alive

Wow! has it really been that long since I posted? Well a lot has happened since then. I haven't had a computer that I could post pictures with in a while. I used to use my work computer but could no longer do that. Hubby is still working in Wyoming. The biggest thing that happened is that my dd graduated and ran away to college. That is going really well. Now that I have this computer, I will upload pics of the knitting I'm working on very soon. In the mean time go Beavers!

Here we have some yummy shower gel and lotion, the cutest pens ever and post-its, shower gloves for exfoliating, a cool nail filing block (it makes your nails really shiny), a sheep pez dispenser (so cute), some awesome sock yarn, and a kit for a carry-it-home bag which I have been wanting to make, I love it all, Nikki was a great pal you can find her here,Thanks again!!<

Question of the Week #11

"What's the best thing you've ever received in the mail?"
Wow, that is a hard question because I have loved everything from secret pals, past and present, swap partners, etc. I remember placing my first yarn order online from knitpicks, when I got that it was pretty exciting!!!

Life and Knitting...An Update (picture heavy)

Where to start.....Well let's see one of my cousins got married, congratulations to Michael and Michelle

I bought a new car, isn't it cute!! I think I need a name for it so if anyone has suggestions.... It's a Mazda5 and it gets great gas mileage (bonus)

I also had a birthday which started out crappy but turned out to be quite nice.
My daughter and her friend baked me a cake:

Don't laugh, it was delicious

I also received some flowers, handmade by my DD's friend's mom (thank you Jeanette)

I received a birthday package from my secret pal that day too! Thank you again SP! Here is a picture of it's contents, what fun...I love it!!

I finished some Monkeys out of Lace Wing Sock in the Tropical colorway

Phew! We're almost there...

Finally, poor little son of mine has been to the ER 2 times in 2 weeks, first time was a possible growth plate fracture, so he had a splint and crutches, that turned out to be negative. This time he was cracked on the head with a piece of wood that had a screw in it. All of these things are accidents that happened at the neighbors'
house. Here are the pictures of the last visit, don't look if you are squeemish:

Here is my little man waiting for the numbing medicine to take effect so he can get staples:

Here are the staples

I think that about sums up what I've been up to, never a dull moment around here lately!
