I'm in a funk today

God I'm so BLAH today! I am tired and have no reason to be. It's been storming a lot here this week. Maybe it has something to do with it.

We just went to a Flea Market. It's always fun seeing things from your childhood, even if it is just the tea pot your mom had. But, my God, was it a FREAK SHOW! The people in those places are S-C-A-R-Y looking! LOL I did manage to pick up a mirror that can be fixed up for "A" and "E" 's bedroom. They didn't have one and need one to make themselves beautiful before school. The guy gave it to us for free. It needs some fixing up but isn't too bad looking.

After the Flea Market we went to the mall. I picked up 4 uniform shirts for "M". She has to wear light blue this year. "A" needs dark blue but they didn't have any. I won't know what color "E" needs until she is registered for school up here. I have to make an appt to do that this week. I think I'll take a day off to do it. Why the hell not?

We went to the Christmas Tree Shop. I bought three mixers for drinks. One is Pomegranate, one is Mango and the last is just a boring Pina Colada one that sounded good at the time. Maybe I need a drink!

Hubby is about to go buy Steak and Lobsters, corn on the cob and baking potatoes for dinner. Then I think I will knit a bit on my sweater.

I went spinning up at webs yesterday and picked up some Rowan Big Wool on Clearance. It's maroon and yellow and really caught my eye. I think I am going to make myself a scarf, hat and mittens for this winter. The colors should make me happy during the long cold months.

I'm also going to make these two pairs very soon so I have them ready for the cold months. They make me smile. :)

Link to Ladybug Mittens on Ravelry - The chart they had was too tiny and hard to read so I made one in excel. You are welcome to download the picture and use it. You'll need to use a generic mitten pattern of your own. They have these in Latvian Mitten books, etc.
...and here is the link to the yellow mittens on Ravelry and to the actual pattern.


  1. I got my hair cut too! Your's looks awesome! Good choice. I'm more of a "flip"-do...but I hate to put styling goop in my hair in the heat...yuck!

    Holy Bobbles

  2. Giiiiiiirl!

  4. Love the hair. Hope to see you soon - maybe august CF.

  5. the hair cut is great. Love short hair so easy to wash and wear.
    I'm glad to see that you live were you will get snow to wear the mittens. We have not had snow for the past two winters. Sleet and icy roads but not a good snow
