Photo journaling-brrrrrrrrr!!!

Some photos from the last couple weeks:
What a bunch of flakes!  (Hanging out on the deck.)

Snow is certainly beautiful...

but I'm ready for spring!

Lidl Gurl, super model kitty-cat

Smoothie-on a freezing cold day.  I had to put on layers after this one.

Heart peeps!  So pretty.  I normally hate the taste of peeps, but these are strawberry flavored and I liked them.

Chipping sparrow

Chocolate covered strawberries that I bought my daughter for her 23rd birthday.

The Roc is keeping watch with his eye dots!

Tufted titmouse sitting in the dogwood tree

Baby bellas looking so pretty!

The snowball effect

Rocco never minds the cold.

The other morning, the sun was shining just right on the floating snowflakes-making them look like glitter.  So cool and beautiful!
That's all for now-have a great day!

Photo journaling

Some photos from the last month or so-more than I thought there was!
New Year's Eve sunset

A little red bandit

The grandkitties, as always:

He's one cool cat.

Pitt panther


Little girl

Or maybe I'll spell it Lidl Gurl.  (These pics are a bit blurry-she's moves so fast.  But they'll still make cute magnets.)

Awwwwww-Lidl Gurl!!!!!!!
Sunrise-one morning when I had to go track down the Roc.

Sunrise shadow

The friendly sky


The bracelet my daughter got me for Christmas

Kitchen windowsill


I just love this afghan I got at Goodwill a few years ago.  (The thing really holds the heat.)

I wish I could thank the person that made it and let them know that it is used and loved.  :)

The story of my life

Udon noodles

Tea on the windowsill

The Roc-in his element

Awwwwww-my handsome big boy!  I can't believe he'll be five in March!
That's all for now-have a wonderful day!

Rag rug photoshoot

Some rag rugs I've made over the last month or so:

I'm giving this one to my Case International loving brother-in-law.  He is also known as my brother-out-law or brother-in-love.  It just depends on what day it is.

Finally, something a bit different-a rectangular rag rug.  I wanted to use up some odds and ends t-shirt rag balls-so I decided to try a rectangular rug.  Since I can't count stitches to save my life, I thought that this was really hard to make.  I kept tearing it out because I kept screwing it up.  Finally, I just decided to forget about counting and wing it and not worry about the wonkiness.  Hmmmm-I think I kind of like it, despite its wonkiness.

Have a great day, everybody!

Photo journaling

Some photos from the last month:

Thanksgiving veggies

Aren't these colorful carrots pretty?  They were from Trader Joe's.

Here's the birthday cake my sister Kimmie and her hubby Travis brought me.  (I still have some in the freezer-it's very yummy!)

Kim and Travis, and Mom and Dad got me this new kitchen faucet.  Travis installed it-I love, love, love it!  No more leaking, no more mineral deposits around the sink, and my sprayer works for the first time in 20 years!  This is case of-you don't know what you don't have until you've got it!  (Do you see how happy Mrs. Spoon is?)

I bought myself an advent calendar (first time) at Aldi for 99 cents.  (I think they're cool.)  But I bought it late, so I had all this chocolate to eat at once.

Puppy nephew Diesel and his Daddy.  

He's growing up!

This is Mr. Puss.  My daughter sent me this pic on his gotcha day-December 26.  She's had him a year.

Another birthday gift-this one from my sister, Jodie.  She knows what I like!

Another birthday gift from Jodie~Hope.

I had some note cards made from some of my photos.  I bundled them up and gave them as gifts.  I am really pleased with how they turned out.  (I'll probably take a pic of them all laid out on the table some time.  Also, I'd like to show the kittie calendar I made for my daughter and the one I made of Roc-but I need to get pics.)

I reused Trader Joe's grocery bags as gift bags.  I thought, why not?  They're even Christmasy.

There are no pretty pictures of Christmas decorations this year, because...there weren't any.  I wasn't feeling it-the house is in disarray and I wouldn't have been able to enjoy them anyhow.  And I'm okay with that.

Also, it's been so gray and dark here-I haven't been taking many pics.  Hopefully that will change as the days get longer-can't wait!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a blessed New Year!
