2014: A year in yarn

I worked on many yarny projects this year but in the end I only managed to complete one. Well kind of. I still have the ends to weave in, but since the fun part was completed in 2014, I considered this project finished.

2014: A year in photos

This year's update is a bit different than my usual year end photo update. Because I just couldn't stop myself, I took part in another 365 daily photo project. This would be my 4th one! This one was a bit different though because I ONLY used my iPod.

I took so many photos in 2014. I even took photos in addition to the photos I took for my daily photo challenge. My iPod is full. My computer hard drive is full. I have no space.

I do love having all these photos though. I love being able to look back and see what happened during the year. Especially since 2014 started and ended with taking care of a very sick kitty.

There are so many photos. I just couldn't pick a couple of photos for each month. So this year, I picked them all. Well, not really all of them. Just my iPod 365 photos.

Bye bye sweet Cairo kitty.

Work on the next ripple has begun

Anna [ripple]

I'm so happy that I get to finally use "girl" colors. All my other ripple blankets have been boy blankets. I had fun choosing colors for this blanket. I'm using Brava worsted and the colors are much brighter than I expected. I love it!

I love how colorful the Brava colors are ❤️

I am using a total of 12 different colors in my Anna ripple. First round of color is complete. Just repeating the pattern now.

My social life is pretty much consumed by this blanket at the moment.

Will I finish this blanket in time for Christmas?

Autumn has come and gone

I was so excited to see the leaves on my tree turn yellow. They were so very yellow!

My tree is so yellow! ����

Then the rain came and washed away all that yellow.

I think Winter has finally arrived in the desert.

First time ordering McDonald's coffee. I had no idea it came with whipped cream. Yum!

Posting... for all of you that aren't a Googlebot. Lately, my blog has been super popular with the Googlebots. Way too many Googlebots. Are there any Humans out there?

Wondering... if I will put up a Christmas tree this year. The bathroom redo is STILL in process and I don't think I could handle adding a tree to the toilet and vanity that are currently hanging out in the living room.

Weaving... in the ends of the first Christmas ripple blanket for this year. I am making 2 blankets this year. I just started crocheting the second blanket and I fear it won't be finished before Christmas.

Hoping... that the weather cools down some. 70 degrees just doesn't feel like Christmas. I would like to get to wear a sweater at least once this season. For goodness sakes, I am wearing flip flops in December!

Thinking... that my sweet Cairo kitty may not make it to the end of the year. She starts to not do as well but then she keeps bouncing back, so I am never sure what is going on.

So sleepy
