Monday night bowling madness!

We are on a bowling league and we won last season as top team champs! This season isn't going as smoothly as I'd like! Lol

Thanks to Vonna on a little advice on even weave! I'm gonna try 25 count and hope my vision is a little better! 
This is my baby brother Patrick! He bowls with me on my team! My hubby John bowls with us also, but he hates being in on my selfies! 
I always try to sneak pics of him if possible! 
Hugs from the DaisyGirl!

I've been a very naughty kitten as my boss calls me!

I can't believe I've been so lax and have totally forgotten my blog! I swear 2014 was such a heartache for me I had so many medical issues it wasn't even funny! Hamstring surgery again, eye surgery, my kidney stones just won't leave me alone, plus my poor Mother :( Numerous times in the hospital, heart attack for her, perforated bowel, poor lamb was so tired and in pain and it broke my heart to see her like that!
2015 seems to be hopefully looking a little better! Finally getting my Lupus diagnosed has been hopefully getting on track with what's going on with me! Plus my brother Patrick is going to become a father for the first time at 46! Woot woot! Him and his fiancee were pretty shocked! They have been dating for over 2 years and were just happy as chicks in a hen house when wham bam, excuse me sir: The reason Melanie is throwing up is "She's Pregnant!" ( A side note that she already has a 22 year old son from a previous marriage and she has a grandson too!) 
So we are 2 weeks from little Louie being born! And I can't wait till I get to hold a little baby again! My youngest niece is almost 13 so, its been quite a long while since we've had a baby in our household!
I've been knitting more, but I am gonna start a cross stitch piece this weekend! It's been hard with the Sjogren's and my vision, my eye surgery to remove the cataracts has made it hard to see up close. So I've got readers to try out! I've been reading everyone's blogs and I've missed my cross stitch time, so I'm gonna give it a go!
I'm still working at my school, I love the kids, just hate the hard labor that working in the kitchen demands of me. But I have a new boss Amy, whom I adore! And she makes things as easy for me as she can. Which I so appreciate! I need to stitch her a little thank you gift!
Johnny and I are already planning our summer vacay! Venice Beach Florida this year! I can't wait! We've already paid for the reservations, so I'm excited for June 6th to hurry up and get here! I wanna find a shark tooth! (Well, the man does more than me! So cross our fingers for success!)
I'm so sorry I have been away for so long! I'm excited to read and catch up with all my friends from the blogging world!

The day is long and useless. I sit on my couch and contemplate my life and what I want to do. How I wish I were wealthy or at least had the comfort of extra money to do or not to do if I desire. Why is life dependent upon money? You need money to buy food or else you will starve. Money to pay for everything. Some days it seems so hopeless and sad. I can’t even imagine the people who are truly poor and homeless. Would I being willing to give up things that I have become use too? Do I really need cable? Internet? My face cream and perfume that I adore? As I sit here shaking my head, I can say, it’d be very hard to give up my vices.

I look at my dogs laying on the couch and I am again reminded of the simple things that makes them happy. A wag of their tail, a sweet lick on the face, those small things make me happy. Unless Wally is destroying my knitting needles!

Hugs from my house to yours!

What a week!

A death, a heart attack, and I'm exhausted! Momma had a mild heart attack and Mrs. Corley passed away. So it's been a week of sorrow and fear. 
Things need to look up, we are leaving for Florida on Sunday, so we really need a week of relaxing. 
Working on a cowl for my future daughter in law, this is gorgeous yarn! 
I'm trying to lose weight again, I'd love to lose another 20lbs, it's just so much work with having to workout for 2 hours! But once we get back from Saint Augustine , I shall be trying once again! Wish me luck! If I could get to 170, I'd be a happy camper!

It's 2:36 a.m. and I'm awake ............

Why am I awake this late again? Hmmm, seems that the yarn was screaming my name! I'm knitting items for my cousin Jessica, she is due at the end of June and I want her to have some pretties! I've already completed the burp towel, working on the baby booties now! Though my eyes are drooping, I had to get to a safe row to stop! Lol
More shall occur tomorrow! Jess will love these gifts! 
Butters is enjoying the burp towel right now! I will wash and block it tomorrow! I love the pink plaid that this yarn reproduced! Very soft too! 
Only 4 more school days left! Hooray for me! These last couple of days will be a challenge for the cafe staff, they are gonna put in air conditioning in our kitchen over the summer break, which is a good thing, but it's a nightmare cause we have to literally move all our equipment and pans and canned items to the other end of the school in a vacant classroom. We start moving our stuff on Monday! Please body, hang tough! 
It's late and I'm closing for now! Sleep tight my friends!

Life keeps moving.........

Even if you aren't ready! I am back to work, even though I seriously feel like they are putting too much on me. I am trying to keep up with the added workload but in doing so, it has caused my PsA to flare. Ugh! Lol
I have put in applications for a desk job elsewhere. I'm hoping to hear something this summer. Crossing my fingers!!
Someone special has touched my heart and I am glad for it! I love how sincere true friendship can be. In today's busy world with internet, cell phones and many other avenues to talk and greet, it becomes a hustle and bustle world, and it's easy to get caught up in the oo's and ahh's of everything! 
I've really gotten into knitting as my vision for cross stitch has become so bad :(
But I am excited to learn new techniques to make new and wonderful gifts! I'm conquering cables! Hooray for me!!!!
Just a few pics and I'll sign off tonight!

I have knitted so many things!

Learning to knit is wonderful! It is soothing, abet a little frustrating at times, but I'm slowly getting the hang of it! I've made baby booties, a baby hat, scarves and cowls galore! It is exciting seeing something take shape :)
I am still out on medical leave, started rehab on the 10th of Feb. and it's been tough! 3 times a week is taking a toll on my pocketbook! Lol plus having the massage part is nice but still expensive. Ugh! Wished I were rich! Lol
I'm hoping that I get cleared to go back to work next week on reduced workload. It'd be nice to get out again everyday! I'm missing my students. One of my favorite classes sent me handmade cards which brightened my day! What's funny is I've been out since the end of December and I received a get well card from my principal today! I'm scheduled to hopefully go back on the 3rd of March! Kinda late sending the card Dr. Truett! Lol
I have a new great niece! Olivia Fay! Born 6 weeks early but she is doing great! Chunky little monkey! Y'all will love my pictures! 
Well, it's almost midnight and I have rehab in the morning! Hugs!
And a big shot out to Lisa! Your kind words made me feel sooooo much better!
DaisyGirl loves ya!
