Rough Around the Edges

Morning!  That's how I've been feeling for about four days - rough around the edges.  I've been a little stressed out due to taking care of grandma (95-years-old) and mom who has been laid up for over a month, lack of work from my job, therefore, lack of money to pay bills, close friends getting a divorce, good friend's parents were in a house explosion (gas leak) and her mother died, father is in serious condition still, no mojo for card making, and not sticking to a descent sleep pattern.

Now for the positive stuff! I have been more aware of my conversations with God and the Angels.  I am so thankful to have them to talk out my problems and worries. 

I finished an afghan that I was working on and gifted it to my girlfriend for herself or for her father while he is recovering from 2nd degree burns. I wish there was more I could do, but I want to give her some space to grieve and to nurse her father back to health. 

Here is a picture of the afghan.  I like the color combination.  I did make a mistake on it though, but I do not concern myself with mistakes.  That's what makes it a one-of-a-kind from me!  (Here is Frankie showing off the afghan. Boy does he need to get groomed, but I'm waiting for spring so I can get him shaved.)

I have a goal to donate at least 5 lapghans to the local rehab/nursing home by the end of the year.  That may not sound like much, but I'm a busy, busy, busy!  I started one over the weekend, but have not had much time to devote to it.


I like using the N hook with the Jiffy (mohair-like) yarn.  It's sooooo soft!  I have two containers-full of different color yarn that I bought last year when I had money! hahahaha!  Now I just have to use it up!

Geesh, it's morning like this one that I wish I drank caffeine.  I'm up early because I woke up and couldn't fall back asleep.  I feel sluggish, eyes all saggy... I look just lovely! YUK!   Hopefully I won't be too much of a crab-ass today! 

Have a nice day everyone!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Your afghan is beautiful: I like the color combination, too.

Frankie could be a twin to my neighbor's dog, Tilda. She always barks at me from the front window when I go get the mail. My neighbor tells me that she waits for me to go by. I guess it is her way of saying, "Hello."

Thank you so much Nancy! I hope my friend likes it. I mailed it out two days ago, so I don't think she got it yet.

That's so cute that the neighbor dog keeps an eye on you! Do you have a pet of your own?
