Deep Thinker...who me :)

Deep Thinker You think deeply about things going on in the present, past, and sometimes even future. You often drift off during work or class and start thinking about other things. You always hide what your thoughts from your friends and it often takes a poke or a snap of the fingers to bring you back to reality. Your eyes often portray a different personality than you are. Your eyes are a different part of your soul.

This was one of those facebook quizzes and I thought I'd share my results. I'm not sure but I do believe they got it right. LOL

Life around here has been hectic but I've managed to carve out some quiet and allowed myself to rest. I've not done more than light housework and driving kiddos to work in the last couple of days. I don't plan to do alot in the next few days either since I realize I'm running myself into the ground and its not good. I've been knitting and listening to audio books between my chores which has been great fun. I'm more peaceful too and that I must say is worth every single minute I spend doing nothing. Its hard for me to do nothing but its needed. Another quiz I took actually help me to realize this as well, I may share that one too.

I've finished the first mitten of my WDK Mystery Yarn Ball and started the 2nd ~ halfway done. I've begun working on a Herringbone Neckwarmer for a friend and have plans to do more knitting to including knit night. Yeah me! Haven't been in over 3months. School is coming along and we are getting excited as the summer approaches bringing graduation and our annual trip to NC ~ can't wait.

Well, better be off to get more work done before I return to my knitting and book. Have a wonderful day.

New day

its been a week and I've not much to report. I'm working more than I normally do and now all the kiddos have jobs. Lord help me. Fortunately, the Lord has helped because I was becoming overwhelmed with the whole schedule thing. I'm readjusting my personal schedule for work and home so I can rest more. I know I need to earn more $$ so I can buy yarn, food, yarn, pay for graduation, yarn but I don't want to do so at the expense of my health and sanity. I'm working on my mystery project and finished another scarf this week ~ yeah. I'm reading Winter Study by Nevada Barr and its good. I'm also reading "Among the Mad" ~ Maisie Dobbs ~ love that character. Off to get some housework done ~ menus, laundry, groceries, etc. Have an awesome day!

Heehee, I'm knitting along and I've figured out what I'm making. I'm using size 5s but think I should have used 6s. LOL It should work out ok and I'll be done by tomorrow w/the first one. Hope you all had a wonderful Resurrection Sunday.

Here is a FO for your enjoyment:

Its a mystery......

I received my Whoduknit Mystery Yarn Ball from Penny. It is too cool and I can't wait to get started. She sent a new book for me to read "No Graves As Yet" by Anne Perry that looks very interesting. She only gave me the first part of the pattern and has taped up the actual pattern which I can't open yet. I only need one missing piece of info then I can get started and know what I'm making. Heehee ~ off to email her and get that hint.

Its April

So where did the time go. It was just Mar and now its April. I must have been sleep but the truth is I've been busy and stressed. I'm off to bed ~ another 8hr shift on my feet tomorrow and I'm really tired. I've been knitting on my CPH and started a quick scarf today, needed something small for toting to work. Well more over the weekend ~ nite!
