WHAT GOES AROUND

The Phat Fiber sale has rolled around again; luckily, I checked my e-mail on an account I seldom use and saw the heads up e-mail they send a few days beforehand.  I’m excited to have scored a wondrous box again this month and so will be obsessed with checking and rechecking my mailbox looking for said wondrous box.  The theme this month is Inspiring Women, I wonder what this month’s goodies will be…..

A NEW FIXATION HOBBY

Terrariums!  I’ve fallen in love with them since seeing some at a garden show a few weeks ago.  I saw some lovely containers at Hobby Lobby yesterday that were perfect and the tiny plants!  OMG, the tiny plants are so cute!  I put a couple together today –

Darn glass glare!

I love the different shapes of both the containers and the plants, it’s easy for my imagination to run away with me!  I want at least one of every shape and size – containers and plants.  Save those pickle jars!  : )

Growth itself contains the germ of happiness.  Pearl Buck

I got my Phat Fiber Sampler box a few days ago and look what was in it!

Luscious Yarn Samples

and some sweet stitch markers, a cool snake button and a Tardis keychain!

Nice, right?

BUT WAIT!  THERE’S MORE!

My new Yarnbox subscription arrived yesterday containing not one, but TWO hanks of this equally luscious yarn!

Yes, as a matter of fact, yarn DOES make me happy!   The colorway is called Anodized and I’m having a difficult time keeping the startitis monkeys off my back.  I’m trying to hold out at least until I finish one of the two pairs of socks that are currently on the needles. At the moment, it could go either way.

Two lovely packages in two days – it doesn’t get much better than that in my world.  Except for this…….

GRANDS

I love how my three grandgirls are BFFs, even at their young ages.  Someday I’m going to be janie on the spot and video the happiness and hugs when they greet each other, whether it’s been an hour or a week since they’ve been together.

the remaining 1/3

Seriously, could the Sprout be any cuter???

Clearly, the Iknead clan is triple blessed with these three, which will become four this summer.   Babymama and Babydaddy plan a gender reveal for my birthday next week, I’ll keep you posted.

FEET

Mine are really, really ugly and I need a pedicure STAT.  Except that I’ve let them go this winter and am embarrassed for the pedicure people to even see them.  A monthly (at least) pedi makes all the difference in the world and I know they probably see worse feet than mine, but I envision them sounding the alarm and running for the hills when they see my car pull up in the parking lot.  I don’t know though, my embarrassment makes me a really good tipper, maybe they’re running toward the door instead.  Ya think?

ANOTHER TRY

Once again I’m trying my hand at snagging a Phat Fiber Sampler Box – me and about a zillion other fiber fanatics this morning.  Down to the last two minutes…… Once again, came up empty handed.  Better luck next time, hope springs eternal and all that.

HEARTSNFLOWERS

Mr. Iknead and I tend to prefer low key celebrations.  We exchanged cards and then went for a nice (early) dinner at Big Orange.  I’m pretty sure I went over my Weight Watchers points for yesterday, given the cheeseburger and fries I consumed, but, I walked on the treadmill yesterday morning and plan to hop on it again here in a few minutes.  The cheeseburger/fries — totally worth it!
