Wow wow

Wow it has been 3 weeks!! Ok it has been crazy here, from remodeling and all of the joys of that (we are doing it ourselves) to fighting with insurances and doctors and flaring fun! I had much I wanted to do and then there was much my RA said I wouldn't be doing (the bastard!) Yeah '08 is going out like a lion.

So here is to the new year, may it be better then '08. I would be happy with less flaring!

So Happy and healthy to you and yours!

I have a ton to show so 1 thing I will be doing more of in the new year is blogging. =)

Let it Snow Let it snow Let it snow

I heart snow! <3 Last night it was snowing here on Long Island
our first snow 11pm
I was out for Snicky's last walk and it was also her first snow. She was born late november and we got her in late January so she wasn't allowed out until after the snow season was gone. She really did not know what to do. Last night it freaked her out (which is very easy to do to my beloved scaredy dog)
Snicky's first snow
This morning she was a little better. I had to walk her around other dogs' footprints and then she got the idea it was ok to go about her business. She also learned snow was edible when i scooped some into my hand and offered it to her.

I am hoping this is a sign of things to come! Bring on the Snow!!!!!

Here is a comic from todays paper.

OMG it is December already!!!

Am I the only one that has a problem with it being December already? Where did the year go!
I was going through my pictures in Flickr and found some I did not blog about. So I think now is a good time.

Here are pictures of some fiber I got from Loop! (love her batts and Thank You Aunty!)

Platinum - 100% bamboo. I have a few ideas on how to spin this. 3oz

These are my favs from Loop. I have 6oz total in this. Called "Beauty Berries" it is a mix of bamboo and wool and alpaca in lovely colors.

I know it is hard to see in the picture but there are many shades of color in the batt. I learned the hard way to leave the batts in their wrapping until time to spin, so when I get to spinning these beauties I will post pictures.
