As I write this my totally bugging me...I don't know about you, but my cat has to be right in my face/lap whenever I read (which is often).  Its of no use to get her off my lap ...she will come right back and insists on being right between my book and me.  Yes, I feel loved but Geeeez its irritating as well!  Now that I have moved the computer from work to home...she has found a new way to irritate/love me!  As soon as I start typing away at the computer there she is right in my way...butt in my face..typing on the keyboard with her paws...down I put her...up she comes!  Same when I hook my rugs!  (There I got rug hooking in my blog...somehow...tricky huh? ) is another fattening recipe!  Cant help  but post it looks so wonder I cant lose any weight...!!! Although I DID just walk for 45 min.....yea for me!  Cant rid of the tire around my middle.  Anyone have any really good EASY exercise for this area...that isnt too hard...I am kind of whimpy...if its too hard or agonizing I wont do it....basically I am looking for the MIRACLE love handle move....if you have it youve GOT to share!

This is a great book that I just started is soooo funny.  I didnt expect for it to funny...I thought it would be like Debbie MacCombers Bloom Street Book series..but Gil McNeil is from England..and she has a very dry very funny English sense of humor....I laugh outloud reading every page.  If you need a pick me up and also like knitting...what a good fall read this will be for you!
Look at these really cool knee warmers!  Sorry I dont know where I got this picture...I have had it saved for awhile...but I would love to make these...If I showed this to my children they would roll their eyes and say "Oh Mom  REALLY!  I wouldnt be caught dead being seen with you wearing those!"  But I LOVE THEM!!! Is there something wrong with me?  Perhaps...but I love color...I love fiber art...I love being warm...and I love being funky I guess and artistic...that how I SEE IT??!!!  I say to them..."I WOULD NEVER TAKE THEM OFF! 
This is also a really cool site....she makes awesome jewelry!  Tell her you heard from her by me!  I plan on owning many of these beautiful creations...they are so me!

  1. Laura, your cat has that funny look that says "But you do love me , don't you? He is the same color as my big long hair Leo the cat was. I still miss him. He was such a darling cat and would look at me with his big eyes and waited for me to give him the go ahead before he would climb on me. He was heavy.

    That desert looks like totally sinful and would need a strong will to resist.

    If those knee warmer are you, then by all mean go ahead and knit a pair. Before long others will beg you for the pattern. Hope that your weekend goes well. JB
