Finally a picture...

With terrible light. I'll have to say sorry to my sister who takes great pictures. But ya know, it is was it is. I wasn't going to post anything today, mostly because I'm lazy but then I checked my comments and saw that Kim had posted. She's the only person I'm not related to that reads my blog! Thanks Kim. It always makes me happy when she leaves comments. Like I'm special or something! So here's the picture. These are my owls and my mummy. The picture really is terrible.. But oh well! I'm over it.

In other news, I woke up this morning to SNOW. Like a couple of inches of snow. I'll put it in perspective for you, 2 weeks ago it was 70's. It snowed until about 11am and then it all melted. Tonight it's raining.... free car wash. Tomorrow is supposed to be 51 degrees out. Who knows what's going to happen. I've decided that in the midwest, you get what you get and no matter what people are going to bitch about it.
Something else that became apparent to me, my nephew, my little sweetheart is going to be 5! This really hit me when I was loading pictures from my Mom's camera, she has some from a few years ago. And some of them were great pictures and he looked so different, long hair and a round little face. He's done alot of growing in 5 years and I can hardly believe it. I can't really imagine how my sister feels about it.. Maybe it's different when you don't live with him and see him ALL the time..Maybe the time moves slower.. There was a time when I spent alot of my time with him and I loved every minute of it! That's all I'm writing on that because it's going to make me cry....
I guess I don't have anything else. Maybe tomorrow I'll have something more interesting. Other than the owls :)

How boring is a blog with no pictures?

Well, I still have not figured out/thought about my camera situation. I'm totally afraid to use it because I don't want it to happen again. I mean what if I'm just taking pictures and then it dies on me and then I lose the pictures I've taken... So I have made some stuff and I would like to post pictures of them..but I haven't taken any pictures... For now I will tell you that they are owls. I love owls. I haven't mentioned here recently that I like to crochet. I like to make all kinds of things. But most recently, like the past yeah I've been on an kick of making little things. They are called amigurumi. Last year I made mushrooms, and two turkeys, a skull, some kinds of puffball thing, and a mummy. If you crochet you can find patterns out there on the web. I just google them. There are also a few books out there and people who sell patterns and what not. Maybe later I will get them all together and take a pic with my mom's camera. Because really, posts with no pictures are boring. I also have to profess my love for cake. I made a cake earlier this week and it's just a yellow cake mix (from a box) with some chocolate frosting (from a tub) but it is so yummmy. I think about it often. I mean if it was 9:30 in the morning I would love to have a pc of cake... But I draw the line at have desserts for breakfast. Along that line though, I was offered ice cream at 10 am by a five year old. It was very funny. That was followed by his little brother telling me how much he loves chocolate, but it he said it the funny way three yr olds say things. And with a little bit of a pouty face. And then "he needed" it, like he would die with out chocolate at 10 am. I'm a pushover but I'm not stupid :) I guess I don't have anything super exciting to post, other than just letting the three people who read this blog know that I'm still around. So peace out!

Giveaways and stuff!

Well, I downloaded Internet Explorer 9 and it's different than IE 8. SO anyways, if anyone out there even uses IE anymore just be aware that it's different. Plus, blogger must not be ready for it yet because I couldn't use the"publish" button. Then I figured out to use the compatibility button, then it worked, sort of. On to the giveways. This is a dual giveaway. There is one over on Meg's blog. and since it's a dual giveaway Anna from The Joy Cottage is doing one also. Here is a link to her site That's all for now, go check out their blogs. P.S. The snow in MN is gone! yippee. I've spent three days outside in the sunshine.
