Sick Babies and Mindless Rambles

This week, many comtemplations on life have been done. I think I need more patience. I believe I have glided upon a new way of thinking. Love makes you look at the world differently. I also believe there are reasons for everything. Here are some random things going on in my life this week.

Me, Monday afternoon after the rain storm. Here's what happened right before.

Sugey and I curled up on the bed listening to music and napping. Ah, the slow days of summer.

Ryan and I watching a scary movie. UNTIL.........

The invasion of the boys!!!!!!!

Sugar Bear and Mommy

I started these Fingerless Gloves, Tuesday. They are for Daryn, who's turning 14, August 2nd. Oh my god, how did I get a 14 year old.

I also made this cute little teddy bear sweater for her Webkinz.

Then comes the rain. This was on my way home from Barnes and Noble. Should have known then that Sugey was getting sick.

It's always nice when your mom thinks you are medicated and driving at the same time.

This is in full sickness mode. Just came home from the doctors with 103 degree fever. Poor little guy loaded with an ear infection and a chest cold.

4Am Thoughts and Books.
Have you ever felt that unreal feeling of not sleeping for hours, almost like you have stepped into another world. It sure is quiet in the wee hours of the morning.

I finished this book and I LOVED it. Too bad there isn't a sequel, but I will get his other books. If you enjoy a funny off the wall storyline, this is a book I must recommend.

The only good thing about sick kiddies is SHARK WEEK, and good books.

I started this book at 4am. Loving it so far. very familiar to my life right now.

To end the week, I started a very special surprise. This is going to be PERFECT. Details coming soon.

Philosophy of Love

Love's Philosophy by P. B. Shelley

The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single,
All things by a law divine
In one another's being mingle—
Why not I with thine?

See the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdain'd its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea—
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

I IZ Wool Pig

Yep, I love my wool.

This is my secret sister yarn. My phone doesnt do the colors justice.

This is by Socks that Rock, and the colorway is Pride. I hope it stripes in a rainbow. Going to use it for socks.

This is my lace yarn from Africa. I bought 3 skeins. Took me almost 3 hours to unwind it.

This is yummy Malabrigo lace weight. The colorway is Pagoda.

More Socks that Rock by Blue Moon. Colorway is Fire on the Mountain.

And yet more Socks that Rock. Colorway is Lucy in the Sky. Reminded me of my daughter's cat that died.

Granny Jana knitting in a bikini.

The Betties Rock

Do you know what a Bettie is?

Betty Definition
The term Betty refers to a hot chick. One that is attractive, stylish and self confident. A Betty is typically a looker. A Super Betty is one step above that. She is very hot in all areas. Denise Richards and Carmen Electra are examples of Super Bettys.

My Betties ROCK!

My knitting group, The Sweet Stitchin Betties, got together last night to celebrate our one year anniversary. Here is what I got.

It is a BEAUTIFUL pillow made for me by my wonderful friend Carol.

This is what I made my secret sister. It's a wine bottle cozy. I added a nice bottle of wine to go with it and some purple goblets. Very cool.

So I had lots of fun with my girls. I couldn't live without them.

And THIS is my new favorite drink
