Five More Wake-Ups!

I am so excited! Only five more wake-ups until …


This morning I woke up to this:


See the screen? With the wind chill it was 4 degrees outside. I was staying warm and cozy inside. There was 12.5 inches of  snow outside.



This is our front yard. The wind was blowing the snow all over the place. It was also blowing it back on the driveway that my husband was working so hard to clear off. Annoyed 



Today is a  perfect day to make a cup of hot chocolate Coffee cupand work on this:


It is a handbag that I knitted, crocheted and felted.  Now I am needle felting a design onto it. I have the design all laid out. Pink flowers with yellow centers. What do you think? The puffs of green are going to be leaves.

See the leaf cookie cutter? I use cookie cutters when I needle felt. They work beautifully!


It is also the perfect day to spend a little time working on this:


This is going to be a cowl that my daughters and I are going to share. It is really hard to see, but if you look closely you can see some pink sequins scattered here and there. I love a little bling!



BUT, no matter what project I am excited about, I am more excited about what is coming in five more wake-ups!


Valentine’s Day!!!!!


BECAUSE, along with my husband, my sister, and my sister’s significant other we are going to NYC - - - BROADWAY - - - to see




I love Barry Manilow! I have never seen Barry Manilow in concert. I am so excited!  I will bring my camera. Do you think they will let me take pictures? I promise to post them if they do.


I can’t wait to go to sleep tonight, because then it will only be four more wake-ups.


This year I plan to make sure that I have at least one special occasion that I am looking forward to each month. Something that makes my heart leap with joy just by thinking about it. In January I attended Vogue Knitting Live. It was fabulous! February is Barry! March, my husband and I are going to get away by ourselves for a weekend. He is planning that. Smile

What are you looking forward to?

  1. Usually I am right there with you with a special something each month. But, my husband is having shoulder replacement on Tuesday and our life will be in limbo until he recovers. So in thinking about what my something special will be - my husband being out of pain and his old self. Then it won't matter what we do just as long as we're together and he's good.

    Have a great time in NYC. Barry Manilow would be just part of it for me. I love walking around NYC just looking at everything.

  2. Isn't the snow divine?!?! I'm also in Northern Jersey (NEastern Bergen County about 2 minutes to the GWB) and have a 25 year old singleton and 22 year old twins. We are very blessed!
