I have to share my knitting project with you all…
The pattern is quite easy, it’s called ” Falling Leaves Afghan”. I’m not making a full sized afghan but rather a lap blanket. My yarn of choice is “Shelter” by Jared Flood. It’ll make a lovely lap-blanket!


I’ve got just a small sample of colors for my project,my choices being earth tone colors,fall colors and such.


The squares, after blocking measure 4″x4″.
I’ve been working on this,off & on since mid February, the blocks are a very easy knit and it’s also easy to pick up where you’ve left off if you happen to get away from it, in my case it’s been several months…=)


For anyone that’s interested you can find the pattern here, http://www.redheart.com


You have to check out Jared Floods web-site, even if your not a knitter or yarn enthusiast his photography is awe inspiring! http://www.brooklyntweed.net
Jared’s knitting designs and photography have inspired me to work at my knitting and my other love…photography.
Now for some fun at the office… =p

Well my black eye has healed, there is just a hint of yellow near the corner of my eye. I swear… I’d been just over a year seziure free. The week prior to ” the big one” I’d been very stressed~pissed off~ ready to throw in the towel with work…
Mental duress can really wreak havoc on a body.

My internal workings are still a little off. Ever since my fall I’m just not back to 100% as quickly as I used to bounce back. Head injuries can be very dangerous. We all seen/ heard about several famous Hollywood types succumb because of what may have seemed like a harmless bump on the head. When ever you hit your head it’s always a good idea to see a Dr. and get checked out.
After my hospital visit my husband developed a nasty chest cold, now he is better but I’ve picked up some germy-germs from him and I’ve got a terrible sore throat! =(

It’s been a tough August thus far… I’m ready to get my energy level back!

This pic is from earlier this summer, hubby and I were out on the canoe, now I’m scared to death to go out on the lake… God help me if I had a seizure and even with a lid jacket landed face down in the water… major bummer!

We have not had any rain around here since about late June… Finally last Friday, August 10 I think the date was, we got a 4 hour downpour. We ended up with just over 1″ of rain in the rain gauge. But it too late for the corn, the soybeans are looking a little better.

Well, enough of my rambling… I’ll just leave you all with a few photos. I’ve got several knitting projects almost finished, I’ll be sure to share photos and yarn info.
Hey, I just learned that the box jelly fish has 24 eyes, wow! That’s a dangerous jelly!
