Birthday Girl!

Even though tomorrow is actually her birthday, we all went to Columbia yesterday for Anna's 5th birthday.
With the exception of the California gang, we were all there. It was the most wonderful day! Richard made pizza and spaghetti and let me tell you that boy's cooking is awesome! He makes the best dishes and his pizza and spaghetti could easily rival any restaurant, including Olive Garden. He needs to open a restaurant! All the babies were there and it was so fun to see them all playing together and having fun. I think that I needed this day to make me realize how wonderful my life is and how all this health stuff is just a bump in the road. I am feeling so much better today about things. A visit to the Orthopedist has convinced me that I can get this back problem under control. I have been doing so much knitting and I am seriously considering starting an embroidery project. I have seen one that I am just in love with and I am thinking I will give it a go! I am also about make a needle book. If you are not familiar with them, they are handmade and they are for you embroidery needles and tools. They also make lovely gifts. Til next time~~~

Snowed In!

We are really snowed in! But, I guess what we actually are now is sleeted in. We have had non-stop sleet and freezing rain since Monday and everything is white. I am up late, as usual, since I can never sleep, and it has just started to snow a little while ago. The flakes are light and feathery, really pretty and delicate. That is what I really love to watch and if they are big and fat, even better. I have cooked enough food for about 10 people on a week camping trip, even though it is only Randy, Mom and me. I made chili, taco filling, salsa, vegetable beef soup and corn muffins and this morning Randy made a meatloaf for me and put it in the freezer. We have plenty of snacks and milk and bread and of course, coffee. So I think we will be good for the duration. Ivey sent me a picture of Ansley eating snow cream and she is so adorable...take a look:
Isn't she beautiful? Well, I might be a little prejudice. Guess I better try and get some sleep. I was up last night until 4:30 am and only slept about 3 hours. I am seriously considering asking the DR to give me something. Will post more later about the snow! Until next time~~~

So Many Things to Talk About

I do have so many things that I would like to post, but I will only hit the highlights! I am really enjoying knitting socks and the KAL I have been doing with my Ravelry group. We are working on the VisionWalk for 2014 and it is going very well. I have been reading alot about Elizabeth Zimmerman and I am so loving this wonderful lady! Good news from the doctor today, though we still have some issues to deal with. I am hoping to get all the health issues behind me in the next few months. If you pray, prayers are appreciated. Til next time~~~
