What I've been hookin'

Hey!  Here's what I've finally finished.  These were supposed to be done as a Christmas gift for my sis but I only got one of 'em partly made and you should have seen the look on her face when she saw the yarn ball attached and more yarn balls in the gift box (she doesn't knit or crochet).  I mailed them off to her today so she could start using them now instead of waiting until we visited next.

Isn't that a pretty soap?  French milled lavender from France that I got from Tuesday Morning.  I love that store.  

Got sick last weekend with that darn head cold that's been going around and actually had a fever and by yesterday I started feeling much better and more energetic.  Haven't been sick for a long time, (I knock on wood).  Which is good because I can't call in sick as I'm the only one who can do all the jobs at the little shop.  We had some rain the other day which always clears the air and cleans everything and we've had the nicest 3 days of sunshine and warmth.  I need to transplant my indoor African Violets and I also got some Daffodils to plant in a pot this weekend.  They should be blooming by Easter or a little before that.  

Time to leave work and get to redbox and rent a couple movies.  Nothing much exciting going on over here!

Thanks for stopping by!

HAPPY 2010!

Hi!  Hope you all are up without any hangovers and ready to tackle 2012.  This year has got to be better than last year!

I rang in the new year with some friends in their lovely craftsman home in an old part of Pasadena.  We had a delicious simple dinner of prime rib, asparagus, roasted fingerling potatoes and spinach salad.  Home made carrot cake for dessert! 

Here are some pics of last weekend with my  brother, mother, sis and her kids spending a gorgeous day at the beach.  We played games and Andy my bro, brought his metal detector and Josiah having been told not to go in the water just couldn't help himself since it was so darn nice out!

The sun set on another year but we get a brand new one, yeah!  Make it a great one.  

Thanks blog friends for visiting me and making me laugh and inspiring me with all your food and crafting projects this past year.  I'll be back soon...
