Moving On With a Little Help

We had the pleasure of spending some time at Deep Lake in a lake house owned by my friend's son about 15 minutes from our house. It was nothing short of spectacular...

Here's the house.

 The views from that porch were wonderful.

The yard was luscious.

I took a thousand more pictures, but you get the idea. It was a nice way to put some things to rest, literally and figuratively.

And now these guys need my love and attention while they're still here...

I get stuck every time I come here to post and end up leaving without typing a word. Maybe this will get me over the roadblock in my head. 

Back soon, I hope.

What Happened With Janie

If you can't see this video here on my blog, you can see it on YouTube HERE.

Does anybody know why the audio on my videos starts lagging behind the video after about five minutes? Can you help me out and tell me how to correct that?  

A BIG thank you and hugs to everyone for your comments over the last few days. It meant a lot to me. As always, thank you for being here to read and/or watch.

Janie Passed Yesterday

20?? - 2017

Janie starting going down hill fast the last few days. Yesterday she started having trouble breathing. The vet met us at her clinic last night at 9:00 pm and helped her pass. We were both by her side. She was an angel in life, and now she's an angel in heaven. I'm so glad we could spoil her rotten and give her a wonderful life these last almost five years that we had her. RIP sweet Janie. We love you.

This is the shawl I'm making.
From the crochet book Serenity from KnitPicks.
It's sold out, but you can still buy this shawl pattern on Ravelry.
It's the Scallops and Shells Shawl.

I'm using Knit Picks Gloss Fingering-weight yarn.
See my fancy paperclip stitch markers? Ha.

After that last picture, I bought some Buddha stitch markers.
Aren't they cute? She only had three.
I bought them on etsy from Knitty by Nature.

This is where I am on the shawl right now.
I just noticed after taking this picture that my color dye lots were off!
I was really upset at first and was considering frogging it.
My friends on IG changed my mind.
I'm going to finish it.
Can't wait to get to the border. It's so pretty!

I already have the yarn for my next project which is also a shawl.
I struggled when choosing colors, but I'm happy.
The yarn is Knit Picks Comfy Sport-Weight.
Colors are Parchment, Flamingo, and Peony.
This yarn is so silky-soft!
I will be making the Hotel of Bees shawl pattern.
(From Ravelry)

This was delicious!
No recipe. I just threw it together.

These salads were terrific too.
Spinach, Romaine, Cucumber, Egg, Feta Cheese, Strawberries, Pecans,
And Ken's Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette Lite.
This dressing is so good, y'all!

I saw these at Walmart. So pretty!

Snapdragons on the rails around the porch with the Geraniums.

Chives blooming in a pot on the porch.

We enjoy identifying birds while outside at the table.
We did this in Texas too.
The difference 2,000 miles makes is amazing!

Granny Sammi.

Wenona, send me your email in a comment. I will not publish it!

Kim Wilkins, I got your comment on YouTube. THANK YOU!

I love you for being here.
Thank you.

Video of May Ipsy Bag Opening, Product Reviews, and More

LOL...I couldn't figure out how to slow the text down at the end, and I ended up putting it up there twice trying to fix it...then I couldn't get rid of it when I tried to just delete it!  That horse face at the end came out of nowhere too!  Ha-ha-ha. I have no idea how I managed that one.  I swear...old people and computers.  I WILL figure this out!  Love you for watching while I learn. 

If you can't see the video here, you can watch it on YouTube HERE.
