Here's What I've Been Working On Lately

I feel so boring lately. I haven't really had anything to blog about. I hated that Alexis Grace got kicked off of Idol last week. She was my favorite. I hope good things happen for her! My favorite shows are on all at the same time now, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, The Mentalist and thank goodness they are changing Samantha Who to a new night because I can only record 2 shows at a time.

So during all of this t.v. time I've been crocheting an afghan. I've got 75 out of 125 squares done. I think it is going to turn out nice! I love the colors and the classic granny squares are my favorite. I should be done in a few weeks, hopefully.

I've also been working on a scrapbook and this is just a generic page in it. I have been having fun though adding paper and stitching together. I make such a big mess with glue so I'm trying to limit the amount I use. I am like a little kid with it........all over my fingers and clothes and whatever else is within it's reach. I did glue on all the buttons though.

I've also been finishing up a couple of swaps that I'll show pictures of here in the next few days. Busy, but boring. That's how I feel lately.
It's cold here again. Like in the low teens at night and 30's during the day. I think the 40-50 degree weather was just a tease. Hopefully this cold blast doesn't last to long because spring is suppose to be here!!!!
Anthony did get over his croup last week. He was in ER all Monday night and then Wednesday when he went to the Dr.'s office they called the ambulance to have him taken 4 blocks to the ER because he needed oxygen right away. It was scary for my daughter, but the croup seemed to go away as fast as it came on. Hopefully he's done with that for a long time!! It's nice to have Anthony back over today to babysit. I missed the little guy!
Have a great day!!

Hi Sherry
Your crocheting and scrapbooking looks great. Glad to hear your Grandson is over his croup.
I am shocked about Alexis. She is the young blonde girl, am I right? What happened there then? We watched the shows selecting the final 13 but have not seen it for a couple of weeks over here.

My yards are still totally covered in snow and we're supposed to be hit with more tomorrow...but the temps are about the same as yours. That's good about Anthony being better, I used to get croup a lot when I was little. Hope everything else is good with you and your fam. Big hugs!

That's going to be a pretty afghan! I love crocheting, but haven't done anything for a while. Also like your 'There's No Place Like Home' scrapbook page.
I watch 'Dancing with the Stars' too! They really have a lot of injuries this time around!

Poor Anthony too! That must have been scary! My son had yearly issues with croup and respiratory things which he outgrew by about age 10. He use to have the cool mist vaporizer in his room every winter. Hope Anthony outgrows it too!

You're keeping busy :) Everything looks lovely.

I watch Dancing with the Stars and Idol as well, and Samantha Who - that show is hilarious!!! Need laughter, not anymore crime shows!

Happy Tuesday! Who do you think is dancing off tonight? Steve W for me!

Your afghan is going to be beautiful and what a perfect time to work on it during our favorite shows! I was shocked that Alexis got voted off. I thought she would be one of the last ones. I'm so glad Anthony is well now! Twyla
