Enjoying the sights

OK, so me and my boyfriend J took in the sights. Oh yes and Janet was with us :-) We went to Time Square. Our hotel is 1/2 a block from the center of it all. I went on a walk on my own this afternoon. I saw Rockefeller Center and shopped a bit. I am on official duty tomorrow. Wish me luck. K~

Vintage Vertical Stripe Pillow

I had so much fun with this pillow. I traded yarn with a friend on Ravelry. It was a gallon zip lock bag of 6 arm length swatches of yarn. This is what I came up with, to make. Yeah!! It was just so fun to do and I think it turned out neat. K~

No Screen week

Our family is doing a version of no screen week. Rick and I am not doing screens after 4pm unless it is "necessary". C is doing No screen of any kind all week and S and D are doing an hour a day. So far so good. K~

Ok, so I am not really an X-men fan. I have never seen one. I just seem to be glued to the posters and screen every time I see them. Then tonight, it dawned on me.......

ok, so I have a new boyfriend, and he looks a lot like my old one. Hmmmm.

For those of you who are like me and had to google X-Man then find X-Men and then look up who he was by the cast list, his name is Hugh Jackman :-) and my other long time honey is Clint Eastwood.

oh and for Bob..... 'nough said:-)!!!!

happy Tuesday

I absolutely LOVE my kids. I think for the most part they are good kids. But how come I HATE the bedtime routine and the morning before school routine with every fiber of my being. I yell more in that collective hour than the entire day combined. If I say get dressed one more time, I am going to put it on my grave stone. If I say get inTO BEDDDD! one more time I may need to add that too. Along with LEAVE THE DOG ALOOOONNEEE!!! DO NOT scream like that inside this house, or You better have no arms after that outburst scream!! Oh, I could go on, but alas, I need to go yell at the kids to finish getting dressed or you'll miss the bus; which they of course never have missed the bus.
Then there is Rick. Who is sicker than a dog but still at work. Sniffing and snorting. He gave C a bowl of fruit this morning, and took a bite of it on the way to her. He was going to give her his fork!!!!!!! I tell ya.

have a nice day. K~

Tissue Box 2

I liked the colors of this tissue box. I decided that I needed to use it as my inspiration piece for my next square.
I wanted the colors to be a bit bolder. The scan does not due it justice. The colors due match quite nicely.
I am having a problem figuring out what to call my Thread paintings. Perhaps, just Thread paintings?? I also don't know what to do with them. I have for now, just put them in a shadow box to protect them. I may just leave them as art and do nothing with them other than look at them. Any ideas??? K~

Not a happy kitty

April and it is snowing. I think I have given up on spring fever. Not to happy about the snow, but at least it is pretty. It is my favorite kind, sticky and melty. Nala went out and I know what she was thinking "What the hell is this!!" She was verbally crabby with me, as she has been all winter and every winter so far. She wants me to "Fix" the outdoors. All I can do is sympathize. K~

Get out the banjo.....we're goin' to Chicago

So our car arrives and we need to cram in to make it work.
Here goes C entering the car to her seat.

Here is "Crabby Pants", "Jimmy Glick", "Moe", "giant 11 year old", and "the gangsta"
Look how excited my fam looks to take their first airplane ride. Money well spent.
S in his seat......C and D??? Photo deleted by accident....nice.
D and C on the El.
The trio at the Alexander Calder
The sleepy chicks at the Museum of Science and Industry
Couldn't get enough of them.
Flag that flew over a ship in WWII. Notice it only has 48 stars. Neat.
It's hard to see, but there is a real submarine behind them. U-505. US Captured this sub in WWII. This was a super cool exhibit.

We had a nice trip. Rick and I are not good airplane companions. We belong in the woods, were hillbillies feel at home. K~
