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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
