Back 2 Me…..

I can not believe Christmas is within two weeks

 and I have either lost the gifts I have already made 

or I ran out of yarn. 

I wish I had time

(which I don’t, because it’s an hour and a half to & from Michael’s)

to go and get more yarn.

***********************************************************************************

I cannot believe I have been trying to type out my thoughts, (as you can tell from the start of my post, but I got sidetracked) because I had so much I wanted to talk about.  From rude remarks from customers on how our store is running low on items to the lines are always so long.

I just smiled and apologized before walking away. This one group of people caught me at the wrong moment. I was bothered by so many people without masks and had to stop working in my area to move out of their way, when I got a smart remark  about my store.

Customer  :  This store normally has a lot to choose from, you’re not going out of business are you?

Me :  Nope we are good, but today is December 24,  the last day before Christmas, and we sold all the good stuff. There’s alwas Target or even a Wal – Mart. Can I help you with anything else?

It was a good thing I had on a mask, because they would have seen my smile as they walked away. I am like, you had 11 months and 24 days to  get a gift for anyone and everyone you cared to shop for.

 I was happy when I saw the lights and the signs of Christmas around my town. I didn’t get the chance to walk around and take as many pictures as I liked. I am grateful I got some and in my book, some is better than none.

I still have so much I want to type out, but today is Christmas day and it’s a day to spend with my family. I got up eating cake and now I am about to go and get another piece of cake. Then you know homemade cake is best without frosting? At least that’s how we like it.

The best thing about today being the 25th is, Christmas is over, and my hours are going back to normal. YES!!!!! I even worked out my extra time in the morning. I can’t wait for next week to start, so I can get back to me..

A Happy Ending….

I went to sleep working on a new crochet project and awoke early to continue to work on the same project. I got tired of trying to find a new anime, so I went back to one I knew I already liked. I am once again watching ‘Yi-Gi-Oh”. I normally just watch it as I get ready for work, since we no longer have cable, and I’m watching Roku now.

Now don’t get me wrong I actually enjoy watching my favorite Hulu shows on my TV screen, but I am not going to lie. I AM SAD, because I can no longer watch the ladies from ‘The Real.’ I realized I wasn’t watching live TV other than their show wow..

Thanksgiving is a time to spend with family and friends. Close friends anyway. I started cooking a little late this year, but since I am only making two quiche I think we will be okay.

I just finished eating a big breakfast (after eating light all week, my son asked if I was cooking breakfast, and all I could do was say, “yes.”) I started thinking about a positive outlook and “Carole and Tuesday” came to mine.

Today is Sunday 11/28/20011 and I finally finished editing my book as well as putting an end to this post. I got sidetracked, but what’s new…. I cannot believe I have been up for five hours and haven’t stopped to eat or even think about enjoying a cup of coffee. I am going to really enjoy that now……

My Oven Cakes….

I finally made something from Tia’s book, but mine turned out a little different. It was still good. I got tired after all the mixing and then I just remembered to add in the fruit, but I didn’t realize it went on top after the oven cakes were done.

I did learn a few things  when following directions:

  1. Don’t be in a rush, because a step may have been overlooked.
  2. Just like when you go to the grocery store, never cook when you are hungry, because you may do too much when it’s not needed.
  3. Read each step more than once and then read as you go.

All in all I can’t wait to try another recipe with a good cup of coffee…

Not Giving Up.

I know I had planned to get up to clean, but instead I picked up my yarn. I will get to my house work in time, but right now I like to enjoy the sun. I did take time to ask for help and with any luck I will have a positive answer.

 I was afraid to ask the question, especially to a person who doesn’t know who I am, and may not want to help me. There are times when you have to step out of your comfort zone and ask that question and hope for the best. The answer is either yes or no, but you will never know unless you ask.

I made my first pocket crochet shawl. The button was added later…

How to CROCHET POCKET SHAWL – EASY WRAP with Pockets by Naztazia {}

I got the idea to do the same “V” stitch and turn it into something different. I am thinking about making it an all around surf that can be turned into a hat. At least that is my idea only time will tell if this turns into what I am seeing in my head.

I also decided to give my book my full attention. I also decided I do not want to use my name and didn’t realize it was going to be so hard to find that new name.

It doesn’t matter how long it takes to set your dreams free, it does matter if you give up, and I am NOT GIVING UP!

A Relaxing Saturday…..

I decided on a lazy Saturday. I thought about going for a walk, but I was enjoying myself as I worked on my pastel blanket and watched an anime I had stopped watching for a short while.

I learned this pattern from Blossom Crochet……..

I did go to Louisiana, but it’s not completed yet. The sun has been gone for a while. I am going to continue to watch this anime series until I can no longer keep my eyes open. 

I am smiling, because I really enjoyed myself today. Tomorrow I will look into finding an e-commerce site to add to my blog, because I need to start selling all crochet items……
