Not Going to Give UP!!!

*** This is what I was trying to add on as a second page to my blog****

Hello & Welcome to Krochet ~ Cafe….

My name is Lisa D. I enjoy turning yarn, thread, and words into something NeW.  Whenever I have an idea and I want to turn it into reality I find a way to do just that and ‘Krochet~Cafe’ is a way for me to gather my Thoughts & Creativity to set these Dreams Free.

It’s Time to have some FuN!!

*****Although I couldn’t add this on as a second page now. One day I will. Proud of myself for not throwing my computer across the room, because it wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do… Tomorrow is another day. I will come back with a clear mind and will keep trying until I get it right.*******

Wondering why I cannot click on the preview button? Going to fix a cup of tea, find an anime, and relax for the rest of the day………

That’s it IV today, Bye IV Now, LD*

A Lazy Saturday…

A lazy Saturday doesn’t mean you are not doing anything or going anywhere. The word ‘lazy’ has a different meaning to everyone, what does the words ‘Lazy Saturday’ mean to you?

  1. Crochet – I know I crochet every day. The idea of crocheting as long as I like was a COOL idea. I am keeping my word in finishing one project at a time (unless someone is requesting an item and is paying for my time) and not start another project until I’m done with this one. I am working on an orange and blue project now . Although I would rather be working on another project in a yellow, because I just got some new yarn. I am Smiling just thinking about working on it. 
  2. Reading – I gave away most of my books,(because of moving into a smaller space) but saved a few that I liked the most. I started one book, but I was surprised I couldn’t get into it (again). The next book was a Jude Deveraux book “Ever After,” and I cannot put this book down. I know of the characters, but I don’t recall the full story. Once again, I cannot stop reading this book. 
  3. I also like playing my video games: Township and Design Home are two of games I play on my phone.
  4. I would watch anime all day  and every day if I had it my way. I am running out of new anime to watch that don’t have fighting in it. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE ONE PIECE  (for where else would I get to watch Zoro) and a few more, but sometimes less action can help clear one’s mind.
  5. Working only if I want to – will end my list on what my lazy day would be (is).

The sun is out, I think I will take my crochet out on the patio, and enjoy the rest of my lazy Saturday.  I hope whatever you call fun, you make that your lazy Saturday or your next free day..

Still Just Me….

Happy and Sad all at the same time? It is crazy to feel this way. How can one person feel two different things at one time? I am thinking I should focus on one, but then the second comes a step closer to the first. Then how can I Not think of both?

My Happy thought: I have been wanting to start a website, (and yes I know this blog is a website) where I am just talking about my craft, and maybe a book or two. 

Someone asked : “Don’t you already have a blog, where you can do that, and not spend money you don’t have?”

I answered         : “Yes, I already have a blog and my 3am Thunder of Word blog is just that? It is a thunder of words and my words can be anywhere from a mild storm or something loud and crazy. There is a difference from having a site based totally on my creative thoughts”.

People still seem to amaze me, because if I am happy being me. Why is it bothering you? It is a GOOD thing I NO LONGER allow others to second guess who I am now and who I will be tomorrow.

My Sad thought   :  I thought I finally got my NEW site cleared, but I was wrong. I can log into that account on different screens and it is secure, but it still says, “—-

I am BEYOND HAPPY, because there is NO LONGER A PROBLEM!!!! Can you tell I am Happy? I may have only one story, No Logo, but one step at a time. Here is my 2nd outlook on staying positive. I WILL NEVER STOP BEING ME!!

https://krochetcafe.com/   It isn’t perfect and I am a little upset, because I see some mistakes. Who said I was perfect ~ not me….

Running Out of Yarn….

 I don’t know about anyone else, but I love looking at crochet projects. I can spend anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour doing this.

I would save the ones I like the best and go back to see if there are directions. One of the best things about this craft is that more than one person may have done the same project, and you can go through as many as you have too to be able to understand the directions to make that project on your own.

I found a project and I couldn’t wait to get started. It took five to six times before I got it right. Then the sad news came, when I had to put it on hold altogether, because of two unfortunate events:

  1. Walmart no longer carried the yarn.
  2. Micheal had the yarn, but for $5.00 and I knew I would need  at least 6 spools of yarn.


I had started a project that must come first and when Caron chunky cakes yarn was on sale I had to go for it.

I have my fingers crossed that Caron simply soft yarn will be on sale next month, because I really want to finish this project.

I really don’t like to stop working on a project I just learned how to make, because I will forget and I will relearn everything. Oh well hopefully next time it won’t take too long….

Listen to my Words…..

Directions should make steps easier to follow, if they are clear, and to the point? 

That statement sounds simple enough, but can they be answered correctly, because people will always do what they want to do even if they were given the right directions.

Example: I was running late for work today, so why not call a lyft. I told the driver where I was standing, the color of my outfit, and to ask me my name.

The driver got about somewhat close to me across the street from me, not even in front of the only Burger King in the area.

I even had to walk towards him, because I was running out of time, and couldn’t wait for another driver. Yes, I got to work on time, and no he didn’t get a tip from me.

(I am grateful we didn’t get hit as he backed up, getting back to the street where he could drive,because he drove into a bus station. (and he didn’t get a ticket)

Sometimes it’s best to follow directions and if you are unsure, ask a question, and then go from there…
