White stuff falling from the sky

Hubby is sooo funny.....all he keeps saying is that he wanted a white Christmas. We did have a white Christmas we has snow on the 23rd that fell and we went over by Mom & Dad's again to remove the snow. Well guess who was hurting by the "white"???? Yeah, dear ole hubby....might have something to do with the fact we did not use the snow blower and just used the shovels. For those of you who do not know much about snow...there are different types of snow. There is the powderery type (when shoveling this stuff gets caught in the air and comes back in your face). There is heavy wet snow a real b%&^* to shovel......I remember my Dad saying take this type of snow in layers. I also remember thinking to myself doing it this way I will be out here fooooorrrrreeeeevvvveeeerrrrrrr!!!!!! The last type of snow I can think of right now is the snow that packs in shelves and is hard to remove from the sidewalks.......oh speaking of sidewalks why is it that in the summer when you are walking on them side by side with friends they are very slim and someone always ends up walking partily on the grass, but in the winter when you have to shovel them they seem like they are a mile wide???????

BAck to the part about hubby hurting himslef it might have something to do with the fact I went into the house to get a glass of water.............and to warm up a wee bit.

Yesterday it was 50 degrees and there went all of the snow that was outside. Guess who is looking for more snow?????????

At it again

Well have you missed me yet?

Here is something I have been working mind you that is not all I have been working on. I have been knitting hats, crocheting mittens, crocheting scarfs. crocheting Round Ripple baby afghans and making hat, mitten and scarf sets. So see I have been busy.

But for the longest time I have wanted to make a scrap ghan but did not really have a special pattern in place. But someone over at Crochetville shared a star granny pattern and I choose this pattern to use.

Let me know what you think........just not 100% sure where it is going to. If you have any suggestions, I'll give it some thought
