Happy Halloween!!

That's about as scary as it comes. Have a safe halloween and don't eat too much candy!

The powers that be...

have moved Halloween! (Clip taken out of our local paper) Which actually works for me because I work Wednesday nights.

Can you imagine wielding the type of power to actually move trick or treating? It makes me wonder who handed down this edict. And what do I have to do to get her job? My daughter's birthday falls on a unconvenient day for me. I'd like to change that.

Annoying (but very funny) mom sayings...

This is going around town with my mommy friends. Thought you all might enjoy, too!

One down, one to go

I've been cabling away! I love these wrist warmers. They are so easy to make and are great gifts. I got the idea from Suse last year and have made a couple of pair. Someday I will make some for me to keep.
The color is somewhere in between these two pictures. It's hard to take a photo of your own hand.
I would like to make a matching pair of mary jane slippers, but we'll see how I do getting the second hand done. These are going to be shipped away and I have a deadline. I have been in a real knitty mood, though, lately, so I may be able to pound them out.
Don'cha just love fall?
Next up... this guy.

Love it!

Have you seen Pushing Daisies? Such a beautiful looking show. Bright colors, great clothes. And the dialogue is so very funny. Snappy.

Dog Rescue

Tonight on my walk I saw my dog wandering around my neighborhood. I called him and he came, but was squirmy and he kept pulling his head out of his collar.

I knocked at a stranger's door to ask to borrow a leash. This is small town America where you can borrow stuff from strangers. They had one handy and I said I would be right back.

Well... the closer I got to home, the more this dog didn't look right. He seemed a little heavier and lighter colored. When I came to our front door, I knocked and asked my husband, "Is this our dog?"

It wasn't. In my defense, it was dark out. I am not a dog thief.

I got the dog back to where he belonged, where he promptly ran off again, but the owner didn't seem too terribly worried. I returned the leash and came home to take a good, hard look at my dog.

I'm glad I wasn't bitten.

I lied! I did really want to learn. Thanks, blackbird, for helping me out. I feel silly at how easy it is.

Enjoy the video!

A reeelly, reeelly good deal

I got four (4!) new skirts. Very cute for very little money!

Just look at that price tag. That's about a thousand percent off.

I also got the pretty green sweater for under ten bucks. Now I just need to visit my local friendly consignment store for a couple of sweaters to round off my fall wardrobe.

I'll also start hunting for a cute pair of boots and gets some tights. I'll get what feels like a whole new wardrobe for less than $100.00.

I love a good deal.

Because I don't know how and don't care to learn

I would like to upload these videos for you to see. I thought I could do it, but then it just stalls and doesn't upload and the computer jams up and, oh! the frustrations.

So here are some links to stuff I like.
This is funnier to me now that I work at a library.

THE PRETENDER... I really, really love this video. It makes me want to go out and fight some foo.

Thank you very much for your kind comments on my previous post.

Time to De-lurk

I don't think I have many, if any, lurkers, but if you are out there, now is the time to make yourself known. It's national de-lurk day!
