Eye Candy? With a dash of random.

heater cat

You get heater cat.  I took some pictures of buds and SPRING! and fun stuff, but my crappy camera (even with the closeup stuff) made it all ugly.  I totaly need one of those SLR’s for my birthday.  If only I hadn’t put that gun on layaway, I’d totally go buy one.

Plus, the Magsters is kind of limpy this morning.  I don’t know why.  I’m about to call the vet except that she’s sleeping and I don’t want to traumatize her by putting her in her carrier.

Now, for some Friday Fill-Ins:

1. Why are you making my head hurt like that… SHUT UP!?!
2. I want you to take me to places I’ve never been.
3. When all the nuts get shaken from the tree, then it will be on my terms.
4. Let’s add this to that and see what happens.
5. I could use a graphic designer to make me a logo for free and I’ll pimp the crap out of you.
6. I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to playing with fiber and zombies, tomorrow my plans include going to the gym, playing with fiber and resting and Sunday, I want to clean and play with fiberI know.  So interesting.  But I haz things!  Big things!  That I need to get done.

Oh and seriously… anyone know anyone good with helping me come up with a simple logo/graphic for cheap/free?

Happy Friday y’all!

Eye Candy and a little Fill-In action

2. Knit blogs! where friends and family meet.
3. All these years I never knew what I was missing.
4. Time stood still when I arrived in the cheese aisle.
5. The truth is I have a cold dark and ebil heart.
6. His  totally adorable awkwardness, extreme kindness,  and his sweet, sweet kisses is what I remember most from that day.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to going to bed, tomorrow my plans include picking up Texas and Sunday, I want to be left alone with Texas!

Happy Friday y’all!

Eye Candy! I haz it

Clean hand knit socks waiting to dry.  Now that’s what I’m talking about.  I used the last of the hand knits while I was in the hospital, so it was a long time coming.  I seriously need to make more socks.

No, they’re not being tossed in the dryer.  I use the rack for the special ones and hang the rest or steal the heating vents from the dog and cat.

Speaking of socks… I finished a pair.  It was so cold and my arm was hurting so much that I dug out the IF machine and slapped it on yesterday.  I could knit!  I need to remember that.  Now if I could use it while using a computer.

And speaking of cold… can y’all take it back?  Please?


Besides the weird OCD cleaning thing I’ve developed in my old age, that right there is why I have to clean so often.  Katie swiped a bag from the trash and Daisy has decided that it is her mission in this world to destroy any toy that looks like a squirrel.  O.o

The froggy?  She loves the froggy.

I’ve been considering finding her a home since she is still young and some days I just don’t have the energy to give her what she really needs.  But then she pulls out these wonderful, well behaved days.  There is a kid in the neighborhood that is always looking for odd jobs.  He’s a good kid and two neighbors have vouched for him and I’m thinking of hiring him to walk her on days I can’t or it’s just too effin’ cold.  She does love her walks and I enjoy doing them with her and it burns off all of that puppy energy.

On the other hand, there’s a rescue group that takes dogs just like her and train them to be explosive and search and rescue dogs.  I’m still contemplating having them come over to evaluate her because she’s a smart dog and I know she’d have a ball with the training.

Anyway… enough rambling.

Happy Friday y’all!


I spent most of the day yesterday playing with this:

the process

I don’t remember how I got to The Noble Pig, but I must have spent about half a day looking around.  I decided to try these cookies.


Yeah, you read that right.  Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies. ZOMG!  They’re so good.  How can you go wrong putting bacon in anything.  Take her advice, do not put more than 6 on a pan.  They spread a lot and get nice and crispy. With my next batch, I think I’m going to try her suggestion of sprinkling a little extra bacon on top.

Today?  Pierogi fillings.  The actual pierogi will be assembled over the weekend.  Would you believe that Texas has never had a pierogi?  Really.  O.o

Happy Friday y’all


ECF – a big hot mess

house 001

Ahhhh… this can only mean little men crawling around under the house concreteing stuff that needs to be concreted and one step closer to the end of an ordeal.  Definitely my eye candy today.  I almost needed to call Nora for representation last night and swear I almost popped a stroke this morning.  I’m all better now.

Yeah!  Texas returns tomorrow.  Don’t expect any peeps outta this house until after Monday sometime.

When there may be calls for bail money.


I’m off to knit.  YES.  Knit.  Back off haters!

And maybe make a batch of this.

Happy Friday y’all!

I think they’re trying to kill me and other random happy crap

Yeah, that’s knitting projects you see there.  What?!?!

Texas is in L.A., the doctor’s are trying to kill me and seriously, I feel like I might be on a roll.  Besides, the boy wouldn’t know what to do with all the half done projects if I did die*.

Texas 031

If it stays warm enough, this is where I’ll be working on all of that knitting.  With the shawl of comfort.  Because it’s magical.

Happy Friday y’all!

*Everyone, please remember to point him towards our Nora and her status as the exexutor of the yarn stash – if there’s glitter in it, Carrie gets it, Bev gets the Wollmeise and Joan and Cookie can fight over the fiber and wheels, Angie has a choice between yarn and weapons – all of course after Nora gets her 25% fee.  😀
