Hi there friends
This has been a very busy month.
I thought I would have a bit more time to relax but time went so fast and before I noticed February is almost gone. This year is absolutely full of important dates for us. My husband is turning the big 50, it is our 25th anniversary and our daughter is graduating from HS.
Lots of things to celebrate ... lots of blessings to count, but I do find myself busier than ever and between doing all this and working full time not much time is left (other than for sleeping ... which I really wish I didn't need so much, ha ha).
Since I "saw" you last I have done a few things ...
I got my nails done for my birthday....( I don't usually do it very often and I just love it)
Made a few hats for my "Hats for Brazil Project"
Watch my daughter and my husband have so much fun at the Father/Daughter dance for her Senior Year.
Got lots of gifts for my birthday from my family and friends ... Oh boy I'm so spoiled. I have lots of thoughtful people in my life and they know me quiet well ... I'm so grateful and thankful for each one of them...
I also made a "birthday" cowl for for myself. Every year I get a special yarn to make something for myself and this year I decided to do the Herringbone cowl (again from Pearl Soho website). I really like their website and their style.
Last week I got my knitpicks order and started more washcloths for my daughter ... I really love this yarn (Dishie) for washcloths ...
I went to lunch for mine and Gracie's birthday with our friend Teresa last week and we had lots of fun as we always do ... I do love those ladies ... We really missed Betsy who couldn't be here this year but she was with us in our hearts and she sent me such an adorable card and yarn (from her trip to Japan) ... such adorable, thoughtful friends.
My humble project to take "hats to Brazil" is not that small anymore ... I guess when they say "if you build ... they will come" it is reall true. I have gotten so many more hats from all over the country and just got a shipment all the way from England. I could not photograph all of them yet. but
I'm so excited and cannot tell you how grateful ...
I will be having a post a little laterdedicated to put all of your hats and mention all of you who are donating...
My daughter and I are now in the process of making the tags and I'll post all of your beautiful hats here soon. Thank you again for being so generous.

We had a great time together and had a beautiful table set to have dinner with our kids on Valentines ...
and I made cute little Hearts ...
I guess February was a busy month and I really enjoyed all the love and attention I got.
Today is a beautiful day here .... I got up and went to zumba (I started exercising - zumba and yoga) and the day is so beautiful I just wanted to stay outside but it is a little chili for me. The flowers are starting to come up and the trees are blooming. I don't think I have ever seen Spring start this early in my 25 years living in Oregon. Just gorgeous. I'm not complaining!!!
I drove back home after my class and sat down for a little while to work on my next gift for myself, after all it is still my birthday month isn't ??? ( I'll post more details about this project later)
I fell in love with this shawl and it is turning out just as beautiful as I thought
Now I'm going to get ready to go watch the Oregon Symphony play the 5th Symphony by Beethoven with my husband (again another birthday gift) ...Birthdays are the best ... I guess when I said I was spoiled, I meant really, really spoiled... I'm so very excited !!!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by to see me again ... you make my day !!!
