I'M BACK!!!!

UGH.... what a surprise when we woke up from our Sunday afternoon nap to find this:




It was COMPLETELY smashed out. We filed a police report after describing it to the insurance agent who was quite certain that is could not have been done with out INTENT. There was nothing inside the car to indicate that it had been hit with a rock or the like. Somebody just smashed it out. Oddly enough we heard nothing, but it was a nice day and a bunch of the neighbors were mowing thier lawns. But we don't live really close together so it is not likely that they saw anything.


Now you have to understand that I live on a road that parallels a country highway. Nobody drives it unless you live on it or need to move your tractor and don't want to deal with the highway traffic. Note: not a FREEWAY, a boring little, 2-lane *state* highway. We don't even lock our doors unless we are going on vacation!


And imagine my surprise the next day when a young man I had never seen before knocked on my door (while I was talking to the auto glass repair company)and asked to buy my car because it was "obviously totalled" (umm.. what are you smoking?) He kept telling me he'd give me more for it that the insurance company was offering. He totally didn't get it.


"We're just replacing the glass. The car is not totalled. The company is paying for it because we have full coverage." (We had to have full coverage with our loan on it.)


He told me "Aww, man, I really wish you'd well me the car. Are you sure you won't sell it? " All the while I have the glass guy on the phone at my ear while I am trying to get this guy to GO AWAY!


I'm usually quicker on my feet than this...but I have been sick along with my youngest. Whatever this crud is that is going around gave me a major brain freeze. I should have taken his name and number and told him I would talk to DH and call him later. Cause EVERYONE who has heard this story has told me "that was your man."


Oh well. Can't get everythighn right all the time. Wish I had thought of it at hte time though. All I could think was "Go away. Can't you see I'm on the phone? And No you CAN'T have my car!"


CREEPY.


I found out yesterday that one of the banks in a little 10,000 people town near by has been robbed 3 times in the last 2 weeks by the same man.... and they can't find him.


I guess small town America isn't as safe as we hoped.

Hillbilly love song-- free download

>> Sunday, April 19, 2009

I haven't hears this song in like a million years. But I just had to laugh when I saw that it was a free download from Ben and Jerrys.



The song is called "If I had a Million Dollars"



Now if you don't take yourself too seriously you might enjoy the lyrics. I haven't heard it in a long time so I cannot defend the music quality. DOn't let the name of the band fool you... there is not anything inappropriate in the song that I recall.



It is the ultimate hillbilly love song. It is the the Clamptons of love songs.



Something like... if I had a million dollars we'd still eat ketchup on everything but we could affort more varieties.



Like I said I haven't heard it in ages, but it made me laugh!



Download if you dare.

My eldest son is captivated by the Mars Exploratin primarily because they are using ROBOTS!
What little boys doesn't love robots?
In fact, I just ordered a free DVD of a robot Anime cartoon here. I don't know anything about the movies offered except what I read when I place my mouse over the title (so order at your own risk and preview).
NASA has a web page dedicated to the education of children using the Mars exploration as the platform. Although most of the activities are posted for 4 grade and above I am adjusting the information for my 7 year old. I just have to explain things more simply than they might. Mars Robotics Education Curriculum can be downloaded in PDF form here.
Also instructions to make your own robot using common household items (we are planning to do this!) Or download those instructins as a power point (I did).
This page lists all the availible courses on robotics at NASA.


Wanna learn about Robotics engeneering? Take a course here. We are going to! Its over 30 hours of videos! Bound to be something interesting!

Get your daily Mars weather report from Stanford U.

Kids can play games about Mars and space.

Log onto NASA Quest for Webcasts and even talk to real scientist at NASA.

Do you have a soon-to-be-bride floating around on cloud nine?

Well, I don't, quite yet.

But one young lady dear to me seems to be headed in that direction. And, although her father has told her in the past she was getting married in thier livingroom, I don't think that will actually be the fate for this Daddy's Girl.

So I have been thinking about Weddings and stumbled upon this webpage with free downloads of guides for everything you could ever think of needing for a wedding. Check it out.

Frog or Teddy Gift Topper -- free crochet pattern

by beyondallmeasure, Sarah Forbes




Ever noticed how expensive gift bows are? If I go into the store to buy a bag, card and bow, I come put spending $10! (Unless I am at the Dollar Tree) This is a solution I have come up with. This tag only cost me 10 minutes time and a few pennies worth of yarn. The ribbon I used on the frog was on sale for $.50/ spool. Since I tie the ribbon together at the back to form a holder, it can also be used later for a Christmas Tree ornament!

"I" Crochet hook (or "E" if using WW yarn)
ROW 1: ch 3, 12 DC in 3rd ch from hk, join to form circle in top of beginnning ch 3. (Body Made)

ROW3: sl st between sc and ch of previous row.
ROW4: ch 4, 1 slst in ea ch, 8HDC into sl st that is farthest from hk, sl st into top of DC (on body) beside beginning ch (head made)

Easy Fast Crochet slippers --free crochet pattern




This pattern is for a woman size 8. You can change the size of the sole of the shoe by chaining less or more the first chain. To get the proper size, I bought one of those foam shoe inserts. It came with a size card to cut the inserts the correct size. I use it now for the sizing of all of my shoes. The first pair, I made two soles and stitched them together with the foam sole insert sandwiched in between. I do find stitching two soles together helps them last longer too.
Size G hook
Sole
Rnd1: Ch 32, 4 dc in 3rd chain from hook. Dc to last ch, 6 dc in last ch. Dc opposite side to last ch, 4 dc in last st, sl st to join.
Rnd2: Ch 3, dc in same st, 2 dc in next 3 st, dc in 10, sc in 18, 2 sc in 5, sc 18, dc in 11, 2 dc in last 3, sl st to join.
Rnd3: Ch 3, dc in same, 2 dc in 3, dc 13, sc in 20, 2 sc in 7, sc in 20, dc 13, 2 dc in 3, join
Rnd4: Ch 1, sc around join. Do not finish off.
Sides
Rnd 1: Join with sl st in back center (heel) * ch 1, sc rep *around, sl st to join.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc to toes, (sc next 2 tog, sc) 6 times, sc around, st st.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc around.
Rnd 4: Ch1, sc to toes, (sc next 2 tog, sc) 5 times, sc around, sl st.

Rnd 7: Ch 1, sc to toes, (sc next 2 tog, sc) 3 times, sc around, sl st.

Rnd 9: In back loops, ch 1, sc to toes, (dc next 2 tog, dc) 5 times, sc around, sl st.
Rnd 10-12: Rep rnd 9. (If you want to be creative, you could start here for different types of cuffs. I use the Sole and Sides of pattern for most and change just the cuffs.) Do not fasten off.
Cuff
Rnd 1: In Back loops, ch 2, dc around, sl st to top of ch-2.
Rnd 2: Ch 2, dc around, sl st.

Bacon the easy way


First of all you have to understand that DH is very particular about his bacon. My Dear Carnivore insists that his bacon be completely cooked, even the fat not be miost or chewy. I have had great difficulty obtaining this ballance because he also will not eat it if it is BURNT.
Necessity is the Mother off.... creativity.
This is the solution I came up with.


I now bake it because:

A) It is easier to clean up if I use aluminum foil.
B) It bakes evenly IF I get uniformily sliced peices (note that some of the cheaper packs are not uniform)
C) The fat is also baked and crispy just the way that DH likes it -- no chewy pieces there.
D) Keeps my small stove top open for other parts of the meal -- pancakes, eggs or (my favorite) french toast.

How is it that I got to adulthood without realising I have dimples?


When my eldest was born with dimples, I assumed that it came from DH's side.


Recently I was informed he gets them from me.


What? I have dimples?


I guess I just never noticed.


Maybe I just don't smirk at myself in the mirror enough!

Something I hadn't thought of---

I am young, I know that.
I have learned to live by accumulating the advice and experience of those who are older than me.
Interesting I should come upon this post by Joan.


Never thought about the corrolation between Obama and the former presidents. I actually feel sorry for those who understand what is going on better than I do. For me this is all new. Frustrating, but new. I can't even imagine the DREAD of having to watch history repeat itself and knowing, with impending doom, the results of the nations decisicions.


Heaven Help Us ALL.

Slip-resistant soles for your handmade items-- craft tip

>> Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Though I am a barefoot kinda girl, the thought has occurred to me that not every one is. And I have thought about making slippers for those in my family who insist on coving thier feet with something other than an occassional blinket.

My primary concern, especially since this idea involved little people, was that I had no real confidence in the methods I had encountered in regard to non-slip soles.

Then I came upon this blog entry. I think she is REALLY on to something. In fact, I might have to invest in some of this to put on a current I-cant-talk-about-it-gift. When in doubt, see what the pros use... or atleast what the men use. They are usually less patient with the trial and error thing than we ladies are and they will definatelly let you know if something is not acceptable.


Reminds me of this recent conversation:
HIM: "Sweety, where are my socks?"
HER:"I put two in your drawer ealier."
HIM:"Um, yeah, a white one and a black one."
HER:"Well, no one can see them can they?"
HIM:"Sarah....." pause, *he's thinking* "Next time try to wash the same colors together, ok?" *sigh*
HER:"He is so patient with me, "I will try to remember that, My Love."

LOL! He is such a good husband and I am, well, an easily distracted, artsy-craftsy, computer geeky, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants girl.

Wonder that he loves me.

God is good.

Tax Day Tea Party

A gathering of Tea Party participants today.



I didn't go. Not because I didn't want to. Not because I don't believe in the movement. Just because DH is not interested in being politcally active and I didn't want to make him uncomforatble. IF you have never lived with an introvert you have NO idea what I am talking about. Extraverts make up well over half of the population of the world. Of those who are introverted, FEW are as introverted as DH is. That is fine with me... it balances out my Not-So-Introverted-ism. I happily resign myself to his happiness.


But I did have to find out how it all went.



Here are a few of my favorite highlights--Signs reading (http://taxdayteaparty.com/):







"Change is all I have left in my pocket."

"Give me liberty, not debt."

"Redestribute my work ethic" (love this one!)

"Redistrobution: Audacity of DOPE"

"My share of the national debt is $36,000"

"A trillion times NO!"

"Hey Obama you can keep the change.''

"D.C.: District of Communism.''

"The real pirates are in DC"

"Congress-- get your hands off my piggy bank.''

"liberty is all the stimulous we need"

"I am not an ATM for congress."

"Even God only requires 10%!"

"3 months to destroy what we've had for 233 years"




As I read these I tear up. I am so proud of my fellow Americans. Regardless of political persuaion, they stood up for truth and right today.

According to the organizers the numbers are still pouring in. We don't even know how many paricipated. We know of thousands so far, maybe even millions. We never will know how many wished they had (like me).


GOD BLESS AMERICA
..............may His grace shime upon her...............
.................long may her flag wave high.............

====================================================================
Today I am reminded of a poem I memorized long ago:

Patriotism
Breathes there the man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
"This is my own, my native land!"
Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd
As home his footsteps he hath turn'd
From wandering on a foreign strand?
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour'd, and unsung.
-- Sir Walter Scott

SHHHH!-- I have a secret!

I have been busily designing some new crochet patterns, and I am itching to share them with you --

HOWEVER.....

These items are for a gift... and I think the recipient may be a reader of my blog. It is all I can do to keep from asking her if she is, but if I do, then for sure she will read it. So I guess it will just have to wait until after the event that I am giving it at.

BUMMER.....

4 U & 4 me!!

Imagine that--

Inmates involved in crocheting and donating thier finished projects to others find the program rewarding.

I don't mean to be caloused.... but isn't this something everyone should be taught early? That giving to others brings more to the giver than the reciever?

"It is better to give than to recieve." (my paraphrase--Acts 20:35)

Maybe if these women had learned to be giving and caring they wouldn't have ended up in the place for those who take without asking and hurt without caring.

Don't get me wrong, I am happy for them. I am glad that they are being aided, esp by this -- my favorite of all crafts.

But it saddens me, as this is really a comentary on our culture.

Why did it take going TO PRISON for this lesson to be learned?

The Baby Blanket



From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Woman to Woman
BY: Winona Smith
It was a spring Saturday, and though many activities clamored for my attention, I had chosen this time to sit and crochet, an activity I enjoyed but had once thought impossible.Most of the time I don’t mind being a “lefty” - - I’m quite proud of it, actually. But I admit, it did cause me a few problems three years ago, when I wanted to help out with a project at church.We were invited to crochet baby blankets, which would be donated to a local crisis pregnancy center at Christmas. I wanted to participate but I knew nothing about how to crochet, and my left-handedness didn’t help. I had trouble “thinking backwards.”I suppose where there is a will, there is a way, because a few of the ladies got together and taught me one stitch. That’s all I needed. I learned that granny stitch, and before long I had a blanket made. I was so proud of my little accomplishment and it seemed, inexplicably, so important, that I made quite a few more that same year. I even included in each blanket, as a note of encouragement, a poem I had written that read:Little girls are sweet in their ruffles all pink.Little boys in overalls look divine.But no matter which one the Lord gives to you,A better “Mom” he never could find.All of a sudden, my thoughts were interrupted by the ringing of my telephone. I hurried to answer it, and to my surprise and delight, on the other end of the line was Karen Sharp, who had been one of my very best friends ever since elementary school. Karen, her husband, Jim, and their daughter, Kim, had moved away a few years ago. She was calling to say that she was in town for a couple of days and would like to come by. I was thrilled to hear her voice.At last the doorbell rang. As I flung open the door, we both screamed, as if back in junior high. We hugged each other. Then questions began to fly. Finally, I guided Karen into the kitchen, where I poured a cool glass of tea for both of us and the conversation slowed.To my delight, Karen seemed to be calm, rested and, most of all, self-assured, which were a few qualities that she had seemed to lose during the last few months before they moved away. I wondered what had caused the positive change.As we talked and reminisced, Karen began to explain to me the true reasons for her family’s move a few years ago. The original reason they had given me was that Jim had a job offer in another city, which they could not afford to pass up. Even though it was Kim’s senior year in high school, they still felt it necessary to make the move. Apparently, that had not been the biggest reason.Karen reached into her purse and pulled out a photograph. When she handed it to me, I saw it was a beautiful little girl - - maybe about two or three years old.“This is my granddaughter, Kayla,” Karen said.I couldn’t believe my ears. “You’re a grandmother?” I asked. “I don’t understand.”“You see,” Karen went on, “Kim was a few months pregnant when we moved away. We had just found out, and Kim was having a really rough time dealing with it - - she even talked about suicide. We were frantic. So we decided to move away, hoping that she would adjust more easily. When we finally settled in our new home, we hoped that Kim’s outlook would begin to improve, but she became more and more depressed. No matter what we said, she felt worthless and like a failure. Then we found a woman named Mrs. Barber, a wonderful pregnancy counselor. She got Kim through some very tough times.“As the time for delivery came closer, Kim still had not entirely made up her mind about whether to keep the baby or not. Her father and I prayed that she would. We felt prepared to give the baby a loving home - - it was, after all, our first grandchild!“Finally, the day came, and Kim had a six-pound, six-ounce baby girl. Mrs. Barber came to visit her in the hospital. She hugged Kim and told her how proud she was of her. Then she gave Kim a pastel-colored package containing a hand-crocheted baby blanket inside.”At this point, I felt a huge lump come into my throat, and I felt rather limp all over, but I tried not to show my feelings and kept listening to Karen’s story.Karen must have noticed the look on my face. She asked if I was all right. I assured her I was fine and asked her to please continue.“As I said,” she went on, “there was a baby blanket and a little personal note, something about little girls and their ruffles, little boys and their overalls, and a word of encouragement about becoming a new mom.“We asked who made the blanket, and Mrs. Barber explained that some of the pregnancy centers have people who donate these blankets to new mothers and their babies. Her center was given the surplus from one of the other centers in the state, and she was glad to have one for Kim.“Kim was so moved by the fact that a total stranger had thought enough to put this much time and effort into a blanket for her baby. She said it made her feel warm all over. She later told her dad and me that the little poem gave her a boost of confidence and helped her to make up her mind to keep little Kayla.”Karen’s story had an even happier ending: A year later, Kim was married to a young man who loves both her and Kayla with all his heart. Karen grinned as she told me, then sobered. “My only regret is that I did not feel close enough to our friends here to have been able to lean on you all for support and comfort, instead of turning away.“We are so thankful for so many things - - especially the way everything turned out; but I think the one thing that we are the most thankful for is that kind person who made that little baby blanket for our daughter and her baby. I just wish I could give her a big hug and tell her how much she is loved and appreciated by our family.”I looked again at the photo of the sweet child in my hands. Then I leaned over to Karen and gave her a big hug.

A little lullabye


Hush little baby

Hush, little baby, don't say a word.
Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird won't sing,
Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring.
And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass
And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat
And if that billy goat won't pull,
Mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull
And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama's going to buy you a dog named Rover.
And if that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mama's going to buy you a horse and cart.
And if that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
I couldn't remember all of this song when I tried to sing it to my younger son. So I had to google it. Thought I would share it with you too.

Eowyn's Knot -- free hair style instructions

>> Saturday, April 11, 2009



This has become one of my favorite hair styles for every day wear. I don't need any pins or barretts to keep it in. It is actually simply a knot in your hair. I can get away with this if I do it with alot of hair (atleast half) because my hair is so straight and slippery. If you have curly hair, you might not be able to get it back out!





My inspiration for this style comes from the movie "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers." In this movie, Eowyn, Princess of Rohan, ties her hair behind her head to get it out of her way. It is simple, elegant, and I had to try it!

Although I can get away with just knotting my hair, many ladies wouldnt' be able to. Instructions can be found at Dressy Tresses for a more secure and universal way to achieve this look.

Hope's Song




There’s a story that started on Christmas

When a baby was born in the night

And those who came far, who followed the star

Were seeing a heavenly sight ...a heavenly sight.


Well the years hurried by, and the boy, now a man

Could make the blind see with a touch of his hand

He was born to be King -- he was Rabbi and Priest

But the best that he had, he gave to the least ...He gave to the least.


He was born and he died, almost 2,000 years ago

He laughed and he cried, he felt all the fears we know

But what does it matter? A story so strange ...

Even if it is true, what does it change?

What does it change?


Well he spoke like a prophet -- like no one they’d heard

This simple young carpenter -- crowds hung on every word

He hated injustice -- He taught what is right

He said “I’m the way, and the truth, and the light.”


His friends soon believed that truly he was the one.

The Savior, Messiah, God’s one and only son.

But others, they doubted, they did not agree

So they took him, they tried him,

He died on a tree ...He died on a tree.


God has made a way

for all who mourn and grieve

Death will never be the end

if you just believe.


There is nothing left to fear

nothing Heaven knows

For he died for us to give us life

and to give us hope He rose


He died for us to give us life

And to give us hope He rose.



Hear the MP3.
