Last time I blogged, my ipod went missing. It never did show up and then I found other items had gone missing also, such as: much of my gold jewelery and family heirlooms. This has totally upset me and makes me sick to my stomach. The ipod was replaced but the other items cannot be. I, consequently, asked for my keys back and kicked the BF to the curb as he repeatedly denied everything and tried to blame my son, who, BTW has no access to my apartment when I'm not home. Whatever!!!! Get the F*** out of my life forever. If I ever see you again it will be far too soon!!!

That was then, and this is now....

Since then my life has been totally wonderful. I had a wonderful 4th of July with close dear friends. In August, I attended my 35th high school reunion for which I was on the planning committee.

It turned out fantabulous.....But I will say, planning a class reunion compares to planning a wedding. It was so much fun getting reacquainted with old friends. By the time the 3 days were over, I was totally exhausted. I found that, in our "golden" (LOL) years, I cannot party like its 1999 anymore......LOL

Back in July I also attended a reunion from my childhood years living back on McNeil Island. Yes, the prison.....My dad was a prison guard there back when it was still a Federal Penitentiary. We lived on the island. Living there is an experience that can never be matched. You build life long bonds, even with the people that came after you left. The laid back life, beautiful landscapes and open clean air plus all the wildlife: raccoons, deer, etc. made this the most wonderful place to grow up.

Me in front of my old house. It is soooo cute!

To find out it was one of the homes that was kept up made me so happy.

Now I know why I have always loved Daisies and Victorian houses
My true BFF. We hadn't seen each other in 47 years since my family moved off the island. We kept in touch through out the years via the postal service and then email and now Facebook!!!

Our 1963 Kindergarten Graduating Class, recreating the class photo....LOL

Being an "Island Kid" is one of the most cherished memories of my whole life. To be able to go back on the island after 47 years was one of my biggest wishes come true!!

Now I am preparing for possibly 2 new editions to my home. My brother's Chihuahua is preggers with 5, yes 5 puppies. I am laying claims to 2 of them. So this will mean a trip to Dallas to pick them up in a couple months. I so can't wait....

I think that has about caught you all up on my life and times......So, now to deal with the end of summer and beginning of Fall and then (yuck) winter.....I'm already wishing for a quick return of Spring!

Until next time.....

ipod touch where art thou????

What a way to wake up on my birthday. My ipod went missing.....I do not misplace things. I am too anal for that. I always put things in the same place so I know exactly where they are. I could find them in my sleep. But for some reason both my ipod and charger are missing...Very strange. It's not that its missing that upsets me, it can be replaced & everything on it is in my library on itunes. What bugs me is its not where its supposed to be. I use it at work, while my route. Hopefully, it will show up before I return to work later this week. Urgh!!!!!!!

OMG! What a way to wake up on a beautiful Sunday morning.....I received an email from my (1/2) sister (who has always lived in the Bay Area & was raised by my grandmother), telling me she didn't want to be associated with me as her sister on Facebook. We have totally differing points of views politically and spiritually. But this really cuts the cake. I am a progressive and she is revolutionary....needless to say, not only does she denounce this country she wants to denounce her relationship with me. Her loss!!!!!

I surely know, my grandmother and daddy are rolling over in their graves right now.....

I believe in Karma and THIS will come back on her 3 fold. If I cut off a family member, it isn't because of politics or religion. Its due to how they treat me and others close to me. I have always given her the respect and love even though she's a bit radical. I have always stuck up for her with other family members. So, I will move on from this bump in the road with dignity after I get over the hurt and anger.

God said the road would not be easy, but worth it in the end....

Yes, I am still alive!!!!

Hopefully, I still have some followers. It has been a tough past year for me. But this year I vow to be better than ever. I bid on a new route at work and have been awarded it. Whoo hoo! It is half walking and half mounted (driving)...yay!!!!!

My eldest brother is recuperating from open heart surgery. He had a heart attack late last year and had triple bypass surgery. Living in Dallas Texas, I am not afforded the freedom to visit at whim. But we do talk on the phone frequently.....I will be traveling there in May to pick up my Chihuahua puppy. His two Chi's, Tigger & Cece mated. Cece is prego's......woohoo!!!! I can't wait. It's kinda like waiting for your surrogate to have your baby.....hehe!!! I said almost like...

Life is starting to get back to some kind of norm after my mom's passing this last summer. Trying to get back tp my knitting and spinning.

Here are a few things that I have finished.

Everglade by Woolley Wormhead

Children's Neck Down Cardigan #981 by Diane Soucy "Chloe's Hoodie"

Ishbel by Ysolda Teague

On my needles: Heather Hoodie Vest
I have the back and one of the front pieces done. Working on the 2nd front piece and then on to the actual hood.

I am soooo sorry it has taken so long for me to post anything to this blog....Like I have said in the past.....hopefully, I won't take as long for the next posting.

I am also enjoying watching the US kick some serious bumm on the rest of the world during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Although, I am not alone with complaining about NBC's coverage. I live maybe 2 1/2 hours from Vancouver. But we have to wait for a 3 hour delay in television coverage. Our local NBC channel (KING5) says they have no's all NBC.....JEER's to NBC....give the contract back to ABC....please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
