Crochet and getting ready for the holidays

Please don't pass out when you realize I'm posting, yet again.  hahah

I know, I kinda feel a little weird that I've managed to do it the past 3 days without fail, and to tell you the truth it's felt good to make a conscious effort to take pictures during the day, and get a post up every night.

I'm thinking that I should do Blogmas this year, to really make sure that I get a blog post up every single day, through December.  If I do that, I may just kick start my motivation so that I can go back to daily blogging.  What do you say?

Alright, well let me tell you a little about my day, didn't have much interesting going on, matter of fact, I didn't have any housework to do aside from the usual tasks, so I have spent today working on my crochet blanket and spending time with Marley.


So this is what I was working on today, the roses.  I've never crocheted roses and I didn't know how it would turn out, but I must say that I'm finding them to be not only really easy to make, but so pretty.


There's the first row all done.  I just finished the roses row about 30 minutes ago.  I have to crochet when I have time, and there's a lot of stopping and interrupting, which sometimes is counter productive when you're needing to pay attention to stitches. 

Yes, I've had to frog a row and I've had to pull apart 5 rows because I miscounted.  Oh well.  It's worth it, because it's looking absolutely gorgeous.


I've been working on Thanksgiving lists, writing down what I need to make, what I need to buy and what I need to do.

Also moved a few things about to make room for all the guests.  This futon is usually in my daughter's room, but I moved it into the green living room to provide more seating and also if someone is staying overnight, I can quickly make up a bed.


Got the fruit mix out, because I realized that I should have already made my Fruit cakes.  I am way behind ladies, like really behind on schedule, but I'll get what I need this weekend when I go grocery shopping and then get right on making these.


Marley is growing fast, I mean, really growing fast, to the point where I feel like every day I wake up and he's bigger.  He has the sweetest face though, and is actually not a bad puppy. 


Did the normal schooling with Nick today, oh friends, this kid still dislikes school immensely and getting him to do anything is quite a pain in the you know what.

But we managed to get some portfolios done and turned in which is a good thing.

Like I said, I've been working on Thanksgiving lists, menus etc.  I think I may do a post on that soon, talking about my Menu, what I plan on making ahead of time and such.  Maybe even do a Thanksgiving grocery haul.

Is that something that would interest you?  Let me know in the comments below, also let me know what kind of posts you want to see, if there's anything that I used to do that you would like to see me bring back or anything specific.

Well I best get this post up and get myself ready for bed.  Have a blessed, restful night friends :)


  1. I'm loving all the little roses! I was just mapping out the holidays in my planner yesterday :) I would love to know what you have on your menu.


  2. Thank you for your wonderful, beautiful blog! I love seeing what you're working on, whether it be in the kitchen or crocheting or just tidying up. I also really like your grocery shopping hauls and menus. I guess what I mean to say is, if you're writing...I'm reading :) I think your idea of "blogmas" is a great one. Thanks again for all the work you put into your blog.
