Saturday News

Here I sit, all alone! The "men" have gone fishing and camping and won't be back until tomorrow! Boo hoo hoo! Yeah, right! Peace and quiet!
Janet and I went yard saling this morning. There were plenty of yard sales but not a lot of the 'junk' we like. My best buy was this Pawley's Island swing and hammock for $30!

 Another globe for $3.....
 Four large plastic tumblers $2.......
 This pumpkin was marked $11.99 from Hobby Lobby. I got it for 50 cents...
 Two "noise makers" for the kids $1 each. I like playing with them too!
 Two cat plates 25 cents each and a South Carolina plate for 50 cents....
 Two wooden "build your own engineering vehicle" for $1 each with one already built for free!
 A quilt for $1!
 A beautiful tablecloth for $4.....
 I'll probably just use this for special occasions.

 I've completed part 16 of Sophie's Universal CAL.
 I've even started making one with size 10 thread.
Now, I'm going to put my feet up, check my e-mail, heat up the pizza and wait for Outlander to come on later tonight.

Look into my eyes...

My grandson, Maxel, has the most gorgeous eyes!
 Sister Della loves her baby brother....



Della looks like her mommy while Maxel looks his daddy...

 My great-grandson, Joshua, is growing too.....
Love these babies!

Yesterday was cold and rainy, so no yard sales! But Pam and I did go to a few Friday. I found two of these chairs for Justin $5 each....
 Justin brought these home Thursday. He gave $1 each......
Justin decided to start remodeling the second bathroom yesterday. He started removing the wallpaper and I finished.....


 Then he started laying tile.....
 .....going to grout today...........
I finished part 15 on my crochet CAL .......
 ...so while waiting for part 16, I started another using size 10 thread......
To be honest, it's easier using thread than yarn!
Cold and rainy again today! Did you watch Outlander last night? Makes me wish I was Scottish instead of German! Have a great Sunday!

WTF Wednesday!

Sorry if offend anyone with my post title, but it seems like it's appropriate. Yesterday for no reason whatsoever, my moose decided to commit suicide! He fell off of the wall and here's the damage....

Poor baby! There's a crack from the top of his head to his nose!
Then last night I picked my crochet up to find this............
 NOOOOOOOOO! Did you hear me scream? Luckily I was able to fix it! Whew! Crisis averted!
 Here's my progress so far... 94 rows.....
This morning I had the great pleasure of visiting the dentist again to get a temporary crown. Major headache but I'll live! 
How's your "hump day" going?
