I just came back from my travel overseas on Friday. I am still a little jet lagged. Came from a hot weather to the snow here ;)
Hopefully, I will get back to normal really soon.

Yet again, so much to catch up on, but right now I'll be catching up on sleep.  I had a sort of good excuse (and it also explains my slacking on the blog ring, on which I will also catch up this week)... I was in heavy rehearsals for my show & making 40 zillion (or 21, which felt like 40 zillion) of these knitted stuffed apples for my fellow cast & crew.  The loved them, but man, it was hard work, took forever, and turned my hands to claws.  They were done in 4 mm DPNs, so they're little and futzy and tight.

Anyway, in the run of the show now.  No more studying lines, no more knitting apples.  A bunch of baking I need to do, but that's it.

Those apples are wonderful and I can only imagine what your hands felt like.


Snow, snow and snow here which really screws up the school schedule.  Yesturday and delayed start and today an early dismissal.  Makes it really hard to get things done around here.


In wrestling news, sorry, but that seems to be our life in the winter; the middle school team bleaches their hair in a show of solidarity every year....so, Nathaniel had me bleach his and he got his uniform yesterday.  He was so proud he was ready to pop.  Baring more weather stuff, he has his first school match tomorrow.





Now, off to get the boys from school and hopefully get some work done.

Like everyone else, I've been pretty busy. Sales at the store are great. So far we are doing way better than last year. Seems people are looking to spend more in local shops, which is nice. Too bad it doesn't spill over into the rest of the year! Later, People in the store.

Golden Corral huh? I know a lot of people like going there, but I do not. Maybe it depends on where you are, but the one in Durham scares me. :o

Hello everyone.  I know I have been MIA for quite awhile, I am so sorry.  Just wanted to let everyone know that I have been thinking of them.  I won't be making any jewelry for a while or crochet or anything for that matter.  I decided not to even try to type for awhile and still only with one hand it is very difficult.   I had an auto accident a month ago, seems like yesterday still, was in the hospital for a few days, surgery and now still recuperating.  Hit and run accident. I hit them but they were being chased by the police and ran a stop sign doing 55 mph in a 30 zone, they got out of their car and ran, one ran away and the other ran into someones home.  Destroyed my car and my left arm.  Luckily I am right handed but as I have found out that does not matter that much except for writing, I am pathetic trying to do anything without my left.

I have to say however, that I am so very thankful, God was with me in that crash and I know that there were angels in that car with me.  Nothing was disturbed inside my car.  Jaedens Christmas presents were in the back and they did not even move around in the car. The policeman came to the hospital and talked to Leia and told her that he knew someone was watching out for me because he truly did not expect me to survive.
All I have is some banged up knees (like they were not in bad shape already) and my upper left arm bone was shattered and the elbow was crushed.  I now have a steel plate and a lot of steel screws and pins and I am told that it will never be fully functional again.  Ha those doctors don't know my God, we shall see.  A gash on the back of my head and some bleeding on the brain  there but that is all okay now. Just sore.

Here is the photo of my car.  Now Leia depends on others to get to and from work for a while, cause yep, those dudes had no insurance and mine will get used up paying the hospital bills. Oh well, I am not complaining, I am alive.


I debated even writing this but decided to let you all know what happened to keep me away for so long
