Wisdom and the Lack there of

Well the last couple of weeks have been nonstop busy. I've been working like crazy, barely anytime for my knitting and crocheting and then bam...I get my wisdom teeth pulled. I thought I might be a little tired but I could get a bunch of stuff churned out. HA HA I didn't plan on being a big wussie and reacting to the pain meds negatively, migraines and swollen tongue weren't on the side effects listed. Therefore I have many projects I started and then the side effects kicked in and I was down for the count each time. I have slept off the migraine 4 times today, each time it came back but its bearable right now. I am currently hoping that the bathroom my husband just painted will be dry so that I can mark that off our list, even though I didn't really help at all because I was out of commission. Hopefully tomorrow will be the conclusion of all this nonsense because I have work bright and early on Tuesday.

My first hand dyeing yarn experience

So I have been working on my first felting project and I broke all the needles before I finished it(I'll have pictures when I finish). So in the down time I thought I would finally try hand dyeing with Kool Aid. I have been putting this off for a while, not because I didn't want to but, because I was afraid of the time it took. I had decided in the down time from needle felting that I need light blue sky so I picked up some wool, that I had wrapped into a small skein, and picked a light blue Kool Aid. I went to town trying to get the dye to yarn ratio the way I wanted it and I think it came out awesome. I had so much fun doing it! I am no longer afraid and I can't wait to dye my own yarn that I hand spun on a drop spindle my husband made! Which reminds me I need to buy some roving. Here are the pictures.

Fantastic Friday

Well I had a fantastic friday, went to a little craft fair and made a little moolah and barter my photographs for yarn. Hehehehehehe I'm going to use that yarn later today for an awesome purse (well at least it looks that way in my head). I let you know if it turns out as well as I've thought it up.
Also since this was at relaxation center open house I got to take a belly dancing lesson for free. It was so much fun and it makes you use alot of muscles that you wouldn't expect.
The 4th of July was great but ended with me coming home from work at 6pm and my hubby and I realizing we failed to make friends down here that would remember to hang out with us on a holiday. Thus we bought some American staple foods eg hot dogs, baked beans, potato salad and of course apple pie and had our own half way pathetic party where we watched history shows about the presidents. I fell asleep contorted on the couch around 10:30 and just now woke up and realized my husband left me where I lye on the couch and went to bed. So I was compelled to write real quick, which is a feat in itself because my eyes are half opened and I can't see the keyboard because I forgot to turn on the light. Well good night moon.

Government websites must revel in the fact that they make their websites so circular that nobody can figure anything out. I tried for an hour to find out what and where to get business permits were and was bounced from federal to state to local and all around and got twenty million answers that may or may not be what I need. Bunch of money grubbers, free enterprise my butt. Enough whining I have two new bags check them out!

Rainy day

Well I had the most unpleasant way to wake up this morning, bright flash and crack of thunder. Major thunderstorms in the area and lightning striking very close to my house. Its been raining for three straight hours since I have been up and I don't think it is going to let up. I wish I had rain barrels at this point.
On the bright side I have 3 knitting projects I've finished and 3 more I can do. I can't wait for it to stop raining so I can get pictures and list them on etsy! I'm so excited about the new bags I'm finishing up! There is the Watermelon Basketweave Bag, the American Dreams Basketweave bag, a Mountain Magic Scarf and Sweet Lemonade Cowl!

Nature Coast

Jordan and I went to the Nature coast with Flat Stanley, a paper doll that Jordan's Mom sent from her 5th grade class. He climbed trees, went swimming, road a motorcycle that belonged to a toothless biker and I did all these things too because I had to take the pictures and then go in after him if he got in the water. It was fun, roadtripping is fun, it has to be one of my most favorite things to do, but I always have to bring my camera with me. On the business side of the knitting world I have a couple of new bags that I'm working on. Personally I am ecstatic about them! My parting shot is of flat stanley on in a forest of palm trees.

Lights out!

This was definitely a fantastical day. First I had to take boob money from a woman that I rang up in line today, I thought, "it is too early for these types of shananigans". The question I don't want answered is where did she put her change? After that it got crazy then dead, like waves of the ocean. Then the lights went out. That is when you truely realize how many people can occupy a michaels at once...when they all get called to the front of the store for their safety.. The generator kicked on to run registers and emergency lights which lasted about 15 minutes. In one of my not so spare moments I looked to the left side of the store where the lights where flickering and it kind of looked like the haunted mansion, but it was oddly calming. I'm also realizing that the spell check on this blog tells you what you are spelling wrong but doesn't suggest a way to fix said mistakes...catch 22's stink. I realized after forgetting I had a blog that I was being virtuous and idealistic about posting biweekly. I must train myself to keep up with this like I used to so I think I can pull a weekly blog that will be on Fridays. If I have a spurt of interest during the weekend I might have a special weekend post otherwise the lack of interesting will allow me a chance for brain deadedness that I have no chance for anymore. I probably won't let myself have it anyway. Long days are followed by short nights.

The Ball Field

Yesterday was nonstop busy. After working for 7 hours, Jordan and I headed to Belmont Heights Ball Park, one of the poorest places in town. You would have to know this because there housing looks nicer than most peoples. Anyway we arrived at the ball field and the kids were all over the place, it was organized chaos. As the 5-16 yr olds went through the baseball clinic that my bible study was putting on, I noticed no one was playing with the little girls and boys that weren't in the clinic. I met Kayla, JaMiah, Quan, Charles, and a few others. We played catch, football, and jump roped. The kids were having so much fun just playing on the side of the field. They couldn't stop smiling and laughing. I played with Kayla the most, she loved playing catch and really improved from when we started. When the clinic part was done they talked to them about Jesus. I noticed no one was talking to the kids I was playing with. I asked them if they heard about Jesus and they all said yes. We talked about it for a while and they were all smiles. When the baseball clinic was finally over I and I was handing out dinner, Kayla and her mom walked by and I said, "Hey Kayla" and her mother with a shocked look, smiled and said, "you remembered her name". After feeding about 150 kids we were cleaning up and all the kids were leaving, Kayla's mom said "Kayla there's your friend said bye!" Kayla smiled and waved! I had a great time there and I think we made a difference in that neighborhood, we just need to follow up. It was definitely an exhausting day but it was worth it.

The quandry of a canine

Today I spent the day at my mothers. I went with her and my father on errands and when we came back to the house their dog, Tyler, was happy we were home and he was barking and looking for attention so I sat on the floor. As I called him he stopped barking and moved toward me. In the same moment my dad was crushing a can in the kitchen. When the crunch sound came Tyler turned his head and made the Tim Allen questioning grunt, "arroo?". Mom and I busted out laughing and dad said, well he's more like a little old man than I thought. It was more entertaining in person than it sounds, although lack of sleep adds to the hilarity.

Hello World

Well I have been gone from the blogging world for many years. I noticed I have had many interesting things happen to me in these many years and have no notation of it anywhere. *2 hour span where my sister and I climbed trees and take pictures of us in midair* Anyway I've decided to document my life again, sometimes my friends live vicariously through me, when its interesting at least. Well that's enough for now I have to help my sister make bracelets and dodge waterbottles. Then I get to go home but I leave you with a parting shot.
