I feel like I have been missing since the New Year and indeed I have. Work has kept me busy and to be honest I am still fighting this cold/flu/infection or whatever it is. I am going on week four but have seen vast improvement, still it is tiring me out. How are you? Feeling okay? Any news?
These two interrupted my peaceful morning with their crazy antics. I tried to get them to sit still for an early morning photo but nope they would not have it. They had way too much energy after a night of sleep. This weeks casualties, a screen on my lanai that they dug out and thankfully we caught or they would have been on yet another grand adventure. The bus driver from Little Buddy's bus is now an amputee and several of Little Buddy's cars have been mysteriously showing up all over the family room, and it hasn't been from Little Buddy.
They do make me laugh. I can't even tell you how happy they are every single minute of the day. Our beautiful Hank, who is on the right in the photo above will celebrate his one year adoption day with us in just two days. Bear's is coming up in two weeks. Where did that year go?
This is about the most action this new crochet project of mine has seen all week. There is just no time during the week to even think about creating anymore. As much as I miss working with yarn and creating I am fortunate to have a busy job, at least for now. Come February 1st all sorts of changes will take place with Medicaid and who knows what will happen then.
This is another Slouchy Crochet Cardigan. I have worn the first one I made several times now and that is a miracle as I actually rarely wear what I make. But that sweater is so nice and soft, it is comfortable and fits perfectly. I just love it. This one is made with Jeans by Lion Brand in the color Vintage. The yarn is a dark grey but in some light it almost looks green.
I can't remember if I showed you my finished tile work. This fireplace had forest green tile that was definitely dated. We replaced it with a fairly inexpensive porcelain tile that looks like marble. I love how it lightens up the whole area and really updates it. I have ordered a new rug which should be in this week. Our new master bath cabinets have also been ordered. They are definitely showing wear and need to be updated as well. My husband has been fixing all the divots in the walls that Little Buddy made when he was first starting to use his walker and was a crazy driver. Now he only uses crutches in our house so the walls are safe again. He has also painted baseboards, it looks so fresh and clean.
This is Little Buddy and his best friend at soccer last weekend. It was so cold out we did not wear his soccer jersey. They adore each other, they even have the same color walker! They are no longer in the same class yet still see each other every day at school. It is good to have a friend.
Before soccer today we had to go get new glasses as Little Buddy broke his at school yesterday. He has two pair but I wanted to get them fixed before they were no longer under the one year replacement plan. Of course the red/black ones he had were no longer available so I had to spring for these new frames. These were the only ones that fit his lenses. I think he is styling! We laugh because now he has the most expensive glasses in the house. Still for one year they can be replaced with no charge, and believe me they will be replaced several times.
I will leave you with this lovely photo of a very tired boy on the way to our car after soccer today. It has been a tough week for him returning to school, he is very tired. I think we all are.
I feel bad about not visiting all of you, to be honest I have just been so tired fighting this bug and trying to work. I'll catch up. Wishing you all well.
