Bye Bye Daddy...

Well I have some bad news to share with everyone our Fry Daddy took a dive and is in the trash can as we speak..Mk went to use it to make some french fries and well it didn't want to get hot enough like it used to up its gone... I think we have one had it maybe 2 yrs at the most. Go figure this is the first time in like 6 months we decided to use it and it decided not to work lol oh well such is life...We decided not to buy another one because we rarely used the one we had and plus we don't really ever eat fried foods its mostly baked or grilled so why bother going on and buying something else that we won't really use and that will just add clutter to our already overly clutter kitchen..One day I will have to take a picture of our kitchen so you all can see how small and cluttered it is..mind you we live in a one bedroom apt so for those of you who live in one or have lived in one you know just how small our kitchen is..We have numerous items on top of the cabinets things that range from a crock pot and a electric skillet to a food dehydrator and a wok(I LOVE that wok).

Now under the counters in the cabinets below that is down right horrific we have tons of Tupperware that really needs to be trashed its the old kind that doesn't stack we have some of the new ones that do but not quite enough to trash the old ones yet...We also have numerous pots and pans and baking pans and mixing bowls you can only imagine how bad it looks..One day I go in there and fix it up and make it look all nice and pretty and all it takes is for Mk to go looking for something and all my pretty is shot to hell lol..There are a few things I would like to replace in our we need new dishes the ones we have now we got from Mk's parents when we moved from the other place(he had roommates) to here and they have had the dishes they gave us for 20 some odd yr maybe longer before they gave them to use man does that Corningware hold up lol. Well its 6:40 A.M. here and I only blogged because I woke up and couldn't fall back asleep so I am going to see if maybe I can squeak out maybe 2 more hrs of sleep this insomnia crap is for the birds see you all later.....

New Knitting Toys

I tell you I am in knee deep with all this knitting stuff. I finally figured how to get the things off the rectangle loom next is the circle looms lol....I found my two new toys at Wal-Mart I have to go find the other looms from Kniffy Knitter somewhere else they don't have them at the Wal-Mart I go to so I tihnk I need to try JoAnn's or Michael's 2 of my other favorite places. I have found tons of yarn websites also I think I am going to go broke on yarn lol but I think I finally found a hobby I can really get into and have fun. But back to my new toys they are called Doodle Loom & Knit Wit (enclosed pics below) BTW I take crappy pics in case you haven't noticed lol.. I got the Knit-Wit down pat..But the Doodle Loom is a lil iffy it makes pom poms and my pom poms aren't quite as poofy as they should be lol but I am learning...So that is all for my new toys

Back To Your Regular Scheduled Programming

It has been awhile since I last posted well I have a reason..Last week was real touch and go with Mk's grandmother she has been suffering from Alzheimer's for a few years now..Well we got a call Wed that she may not make it much longer her breathing was labored and they were moving her to hospice..We got the call on Sat that she had passed away, Mk figured he would work Sat night since he had Sun and Mon off..We left Sun morning when he got home it was only a 4 hour drive so it wasn't that bad..The funeral service was very nice she was cremated..They are also have another service in her hometown next week where she will be buried. Whenever Mk's family gets together we all have a good time and have many laughs which was seriously needed at this time for sure...I met a few new family members which was cool but all in all you would havenever thought we were there for a funeral which I guess is a good thing. I figured I would keep up the family issue this week and tell you all about Mk's family and then my family lol that should make some interesting reading..Oh and I finally figured how to get my project off the rectangle loom lol I got a few more knitting toys which I will blog about later at another time...

Knitting Knitting...

Ok so in my last post I was telling you all how I went and got these knitting looms to help me knit I took some pics and figured I would show you so you knew what I was talking about. I got one set of round ones it came with 4 different sizes and I got a purple rectangle one...I haven't used the circle ones yet I am still messing with the purple one I am having a problem getting the damn thing off the loom the directions are a tad bit confusing as I said before..I need to find some blogs about knitting see if I can learn a few things I couldn't hurt I suppose...So if anyone reading this knows anything about these looms pass along the info lol..

The Year Is Half Gone..Where Did It Go ??

Quote for June "Life Should Not Only Be Lived, It Should Be Celebrated" By Osho.... I can't believe it is June already this year needs to slow down some it will be Christmas before you know it and I am not looking forward to it lol...The weather here has been very nice I think I can finally put the heater away once and for all...Yes I know I am odd its June and I still have my heater out...I also have my fan going year round and yes that includes winter too lol..What can I say man that bedroom gets hot in the summer its like the Sahara Desert and in the winter sometimes its like the Frozen Tundra and yet I still have the fan on lol...I need to buy a new fan cause Old Faithfull in the bedroom is about to die lol I want to buy a lil air purifer too maybe it will help with these damn allergies...I went out and got some knitting looms a few weeks ago and started trying to knit lol..I will post pictures of them tomorrow the the directions that come with these things are extremely confusing in some spots lol but i'll figure it out or find someone who can. Well I guess that is all for now I am going to go read as you can see the book The Secret is on hold for now I just can't get into it but I am not giving up on it completely I will go back and try and read it again eventually..
