Oh yeah I did it!

Under the weather

Today has been a terrible day for me. I have been sick all day with a horrible stomach bug. yuck I had to call in sick and it's not looking good for tomorrow either, still not able to eat.

I thought I could play with my new highspeed internet and it would cheer me up but it is not working either. The dsl was hooked up yesterday. Yesterday was also rough as I got a very big splinter under my finger nail that went all the way back to the nail bed. OUCH! I had to split my nail then pluck it out from the split. I now have a split all the way back to the cuticle. I hope it heals OK. Sure is sore now but I have had my mind on other problems today. earl, earl,

New Laptop finally!!!

I have been so out of touch for a couple weeks as my laptop was quickly dying. Santa came early last night with a new laptop, printer and camera bundle, a black friday special. It is awesome. I now have a lot of catching up to do.

My heart is full of sorrow tonight for a fellow farmgirl who lost her home and all belongings in a house fire on Thanksgiving Day. Candace lives in Idaho. Many farmgirls have poured out their hearts and pocket books already and I will do the same on Monday.

I have new baby goats, Rock and Rhoda born 11/15/2007 are precious. I now have pics if I can figure out how to post them they will be here soon.

What fun was had today!

I have been busy the past week saving lives in the ER mostly night shift yuk! The job gets in my way of my hobbies but also supports them, so whats a girl to do but marry rich.

Tonight we had our first farmgirl chapter meeting at Robin's home. We all had a great time. I made gift bags for everyone some with an apron some shopping bags or crocheted dish cloths.
All bags had a beautiful kitchen or hand towel with redwork embroidery on it that Robin made and the ingredients and recipe for homemade laundry soap. I gave a demonstration in the kitchen to show everyone how easy it is to make. Did I forget to mention the awesome food. WOW and the fun and chatter with old friends and new. I can't wait to do this again next month.

Bonnie also paints gourds and gave us each the sweetest little birdhouse christmas ornament.
I was feeling really lousy today and I sure got a boost at the get together, it is hard to be down in such good company.

Better go to bed now, need rest for another night shift tomorrow.

First Post

This is a lot of fun. Robin has helped me set this up, since I lack in that department!!
We are catching a breath while discussing all our projects that need to be done before the holidays. I made 2 beautiful aprons last night (I hope to have pics soon Oh Robin!) One of the aprons was made from a dress, super easy and thrifty. I am also knitting socks from a very very easy pattern that I found on Mary Janes FarmGirl Connection. I guess everyone will get socks this year for Christmas. LOL

Baby goats are on the way any day now!!!!!
