Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Saturday Putting up the Tree Day

Thanks giving is over and I hope everyone had a wonderful day. I sure did the kiddos where over, but I made the mistake of letting them play in my office and I am still trying to find some of my things... Kids....they love to get into things, and g-ma sure has a lot to get into!!!! lol...

I am trying to put up our tree but it is a 3 day job since I have so many decorations, and then the tree decded to not light up all over. :( Remember when all tree lights were on strings, now a days that is unheard of. Well it looks like we will have both this year since half of the lights do not want to work????
One thing that was so cute this year with my g-kis on Thanksgiving, back to my original talk on this post, I am skipping around here, was that my older -daughter made up these turkey placemats for everyone. She drew handprint turkeys on construction paper and then made a little joke on each one with the answer on the side. So everyone had to read theirs. As you can see my son is reading his...they were really cute jokes like..."why can't leopards hide?" because they are always spotted...lol....and "What kind of bottle cries?" a wine bottle...lol....they were cute and everyone enjoyed reading theirs aloud...hurray for Amanda... As you see she and the little one are funning with g-pa.... :) Family is where it is all at!!!!

I tried some new great recipes... one was Sweet potato bake and the other wa a broccoli bake and the other was a baked pumpkin!!! All 3 were winners...

I even made a pie pumpkin filled with dressing it was yummy!!!

adding a teapot to the table for when we have pie

Crochet Lady GaGa and A Scary Movie???

Now kitty wants a pair!!! LOL

I thought I would show some patterns I found while searching the net....I like these fingerless gloves because they are really different from the "norm" ones...plus the pattern is free and look at this shawl WOW!! Isn't it just to die for??

"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."
                                                                                  -- Oprah Winfrey

Now this is a fantastic quote, but with yarn I am not sure it applies....because we all know that we never never never have enough!!!

"The woman who tells her age is either too young to have anything to lose or too old to have anything to gain." Chinese Proverb

New York magazine’s Lady Gaga cover story in March this year was a really good article. She’s a very playful with fashion and identity that I can't wait to see what next style choice she will choose. I truely like this bubble dress

more so than some of her other choices. The NY Times wrote:
"Gaga was very taken with her new “bubble dress” at this point, and we talked about its unreality, the beauty of the imaginary. Everyone wanted that dress, but it wasn’t a dress at all—it was a bunch of plastic balls. “On my tour,” she declared, “I’m going to be in my bubble dress on a piano made of bubbles, singing about love and art and the future. I should like to make one person believe in that moment, and it would be worth every salt of a No. 1 record.” She dropped the accent for a moment now—the real girl, unartificed, was right underneath—and leaned in. “I can have hit records all day, but who ------ cares?” she explained. “A year from now, I could go away, and people might say, ‘Gosh, what ever happened to that girl who never wore pants?’ But how wonderfully memorable 30 years from now, when they say, ‘Do you remember Gaga and her bubbles?’ Because, for a minute, everybody in that room will forget every sad, painful thing in their lives, and they’ll just live in my bubble world.”

She is right about that, I mean people will remember her for her excentric outfits and the "Bubble Dress" will be on the top of th elist. Great for New Years...hmmmm anyone thinking of wearing it? Would of made a terrific costume....oh well maybe next year????? Naw...I don't have the body to pull it off, yet with all those bubles, who would notice...???

Now we all know that Sex in the City star "Carrie" ihas an out of this world wardrobe, but did you ever wonder about the person that designs all her outfits might look like? Well.....

Kind of shocking huh? This corchet number just isn't flatterning for her...

And what a "Peacock" dress...???

Artist, Annie Morris created this clothespin dress for Christopher Bailey creative director of Burberry.

I wonder if they ever fall off?

This one makes me want to hold my breath....wow....

And look closely this is actually a wig???Wow think about carrying that one around...phew...

Thats all for today.... oh yeah and one more for looks....had to throw this one in for fashion strangeness, now don't get me wrong, I really love the late Michael Jackson's music, but his appearance left one a bit questioning "Why?"....a torched soul I believe...

Our New Little One

 Here  she is!!! Chloee............. she is 5 lb of joy and a bundle of love, and she is very good..she has the cone on because she just got spayed...I have been spending most of my time with her and she is already attached to me and cries for me. :) Most of the time she is quiet but she barks with Foxy and they are just starting to play. Potty training is pretty easy as she wants to please, her face is all messy from the cone and eating right now, once she is healed we will bathe her.. :)

TGIF and a Little One is Coming

I spent most of the day searching our SPCA and trying to adopt a little one. :) The last few days I have going to the local shelter looking of an addition to our family, as most of you know my Allie passed away after 20 yrs and I have been really lonely, so we decided to get a little one to be with Foxy too....well finally I found a little girl, about 6lb, Shih tzu cream in color, she is so cute, what made me choose her, and believe me they are all so adorable, was the fact that when I walked up to her cage she stood on her hind legs and put her front paws together and moved them up and down like she was praying....I knew right then that God had sent her to me!!! :)

Well she wasn't up for adoption till today, ......that's not her but the same kind of dog....so I had to be at the shelter by 10am when they open and pray that no one else would want her. I got there at 9:30am and I was 3rd in line. I chatted with the two guys ahead of me and they were there for different dogs, phew....then came another gal and she was there for a cat, and another, she was there for a lab puppy, now mind you I was told that the little girl I wanted was a favorite and there would probably be a ton of people there ahead of me. :( so far so good, this last gal shows up she said she is there for a terrier...okay...I was good to go, after 15 more min and more people no one was there for the girl I wanted. I was confident she would be mine.

The door opened we all walked in it was my turn and I told her the kennel number and they sent a gal to go "fetch" [no pun intended] her so we could formally meet, meanwhile the last gal dashes off into the kennels. A few moments later her comes my little poochy with the worker and the gal that had dashed off, and she says this is the dog this gal wants, WHOA.......so I said no that is the one I wanted, so the the lady behind the counter said , ok we have two people so we have to throw your names in a hat and we draw... sheesh.....now the pressures really on. .....they drew the name, opened the paper....TADA...it was me... :)...I was so happy...I told the other gal that I found out yesterday that there was another little one coming up for adoption Sunday, she looked at me and said oh thats ok I decided to take the lab????? What how do you go from tiny little 6 lb baby to 65 lb BIG doggie????? Oh well ...

Now for the "rig a ma roll"....[my mom used to say that all the time. :)] I had to fill out what seemed like 10 pages of questions, Do I promise to feed her? Do I promise to take her to the vet regularly? Do I promise to keep her in the house? and so on and on and on....really....no wonder people don't go there to adopt, after an hour I signed away my life....lol...just kidding, anyways, I had to go get Foxy to now have an "Intervention," to make sure they got along, REALLY....so back home and got Foxy and brought her in, but she first had to walk by the cats...she loved that , not sure they did, lol,  next we were put in a different room, and a guy came in and said I had to leave the room and I could watch through the window to the left, and this other worker brought in the new little one...they sniffed and ran around and then sniffed some more and Foxyt went looking for me....the little one was scared as she is much smaller and been through alot...finally they said they felt it should be ok....WOW...pressure...

So .....back to the main lobby waited in line AGAIN...and then signed some more papers, and had to sit and wait while the guy tried to anser the phone and finsih my paperwork,

Now they told me this little girl was 8 months then they said no she is 2yrs old???? Which is it....who knows...finally after about 30 more minutes he said he was ready for me and he wanted $$$$$ and said she wasn't spayed yet so I couldn't get her till Monday as they would be spaying her Sunday. :( all this work and time and couldn't take her home...I was happy and sad at the same time....but I look forward to Monday when she comes home and then I will  post a little photo of her. :)

And now a little about this cute bundle of fur!!!

The Shih Tzu has been around for a very long time. In the countries of Tibet and China, these little dogs were given to Chinese Royalty as gifts. The words "Shih Tzu" mean lion dog in Chinese.

Shih Tzu were, and still are, the perfect companion or lap dog. Being a house pet is the perfect job for a Shih Tzu. Nowadays, Shih Tzu are still wonderful lap dogs. They also can compete in conformation and obedience, and participate in agility. Shih Tzu can also make a good therapy dogs.

Shih Tzu are small, sturdy dogs. They grow to be nine or ten inches in height, and weigh nine to sixteen pounds as an adult. Some people think that Shih Tzu look like Lhasa Apsos, and they do look similar. But the Shih Tzu is a smaller dog.

Well-bred Shih Tzu have good, strong muscles and are athletic. They are alert and will let you know when someone arrives. Shih Tzu are very friendly and get along with well children and other dogs.

And they DON"T shed so that makes them all the more desirerable...I look forward to mine...now to name her????? Any suggestions???

She is my "fall" surprize....
