Without the Hard, There'd Be No Easy

Such a long month... So much has happened. It's been a month of highs and lows... A celebration of a SPECIAL birthday, loss of a dear friend and an announcement of another grandchild for another friend. It's definitely run the gamut.

So glad there is a Wee-little-one for a distraction, to obsess about and to design new knits for!!!! Knitting always gets my balance on and babies always get my happy goin'! Always a Ying to the Yang, when one looks hard enough.

Only a couple more days left and this month will be done. Here's hoping next month is TREMENDOUSLY boring. :)))

Thank you for visiting. Hope you come again!

Grandmother's Hope Chest

Young ladies used to have cedar chests to collect items, linens and clothing for when they would get married. They'd call this chest a Hope Chest.

Well, this mother (a hopeful future grandmother) has started her own Hope Chest. As the years go by, I hope to collect lots of baby things for my daughters and their babies.

A few days ago, I lost a friend before she had a chance to see her sons' future wives and children. Now I am more determined to fill the chest (and maybe more), so that my daughters will have a BIG something from me, either way.

After knitting the sweater for the CF auction, I fell in love with my pattern. So, immediately after I bought some purple yarn (my favorite color) and knitted another one!!!

About this sweater:
--> My own pattern adaption
--> Made with Paton's Classic Wool.
--> US 7 & 8 needles
--> Fits a 12-24m baby (depending on the baby's size).


Thank you for visiting. Hope you come again!

My Dear Friend - No Changes

Oh, she's fighting a good fight. She's had, in the past 3 weeks, a stroke, a heart attach, suffers from pneumonia and numerous other issues and complications. If only she were 10 years younger and her body a little bit stronger... A normal life might be truly possible.

She's one of the good ones. She truly has compassion and strives hard for the not-so-blessed. Loved by many and is a true measure of a good person.

Please keep her in your hearts, thoughts and prayers

Tons and Tons of Rain

We've had flood warnings and I don't doubt it! The rivers have been so swollen, for a couple weeks.

The part I am having trouble with is the fact it was almost 80°F yesterday but in today's rainy weather, there will be snow mixed in! YIKES!!!!

Thank you for visiting. Hope you come again!

With a Broken Heart

I found out today, my close friend from college and roommate, post college, had a massive stroke, 3 weeks ago. She's been in ICU and the prognosis is still unclear. Oh, I am so sad.

Please say a prayer.

Fun Day!

Early morning, on my way around town I took this picture of Amherst's wild turkeys. They wonder EvErYWhErE and they have even ended up in our yard a couple times!

Later on, we went to the Amherst's PTA presentation of Seusical. Wow, do we have some talented people in our town. What a wonderful show.

Happy 13th to My Baby!

I can't believe she's a teenager already.... I am so blessed but it's going by so quickly.

On this special day, I can't believe there is still snow in some areas and at the same time the wetlands are full and the frogs are so vocal! Whatta favorite time of year it is.

ARAN SWEATER for a CYSTIC FIBROSIS Auction

Hi everyone!

(Sadly the pics were taken at different times, so the yarn looks different... the color in the second picture isn't so "sun bleached" and is MUCH closer to the actual color)...
A friend of mine is involved in organizing an auction for Cystic Fibrosis and she asked if I had anything to donate. I decided to knit this sweater, special for the auction.

My friend is Irish, straight from Ireland, so I thought it would be fun to make this Irish knit sweater a little personal "thing" between us, two.

Please wish the sweater lots of luck and hope it wins LOTS OF MONEY for the cure!

Thank you for visiting. Hope you come again!

Almost Frog Kissin' Time!

Soon, all this snow will melt away and the swamp and surrounding areas will be full of the fun sounds of life!!!!

Boy, I love spring. It's the season of hearts! I am sorry and ashamed to admit, I am a late bloomin' romantic and an appreciator of cycle of life and love.
My nephew is getting married in a few weeks! Ooooh gush!

Speaking of love.... I have kept a couple of Passion Flowers I've keep alive, in my bedroom room (south facing and the best room!) and they haven't stopped making leaves, all winter long. I am eager to see the flowers again, this summer. Should come quickly because it's a mature plant.

I have successfully done the same with one, possibly two of my tropical hibiscus... but the third (my favorite braided hibiscus) suffered the "yum-yums" of my beagle. No worries!!! Hibiscus is very healthy and medicinal. Supposed to make a decent tea, (but I will stick to my own tea favorites). :D I love plants much, I'd have a garden in my room, if I could, trust me! °u° .

Thank you for visiting. Hope you come again!

Typical Spring Flooding

Snow is melting at an amazing rate and flooding is everywhere. Post Road, which runs in front of the high school is closed, but school's still open?!!? Not an April Fool's joke?!!?

"Good Morning,

Today is Tuesday, April 1, 2014. We have a road closure on Boston Post Road at the bridge near Souhegan High School. Be advised that you should seek an alternate route to SHS and AMS this morning. School is in session today and buses are running.

That "route" means going WAY AROUND Amherst, and Amherst's a big town! On a normal day, some of the kids living in the outskirts of town are on their bus for literally an hour. Maybe a "Late Start" would have been a good idea?!!?

April Floods make Mucky May Muds!"

Thank you for visiting. Hope you come again!
