birthday cake!

SO my birthday was on Friday. And at the end of a long day I had this super cute birthday cake.

My day started off with dogs barking at each other through a door wanting to play. They do not seem to understand that on my side of the house, we sleep in on days off.

I went to get the tag for my truck renewed which was uneventful except for a woman who was in line, right in front of me. She was sporting a pair of Acid washed tapered leg jeans. I thought those were banned around 1995?

So as I was leaving the Tag place, I was sitting at the stop sign waiting for traffic to pass. I looked left. I looked right. I looked left and again and WHAM! My truck was hit. By a cop.

I am ok, and the truck is dinged up. The cop's car had the most damage. And OOOOOO buddy, he was easy on the eyes.

After waiting an eternity for the accident report to be written, I was on my way again and off to have lunch with my best friend. I hit a few antique stores and bought some yarn goodness.

I had dinner with the family and spent some quality time with people I love.

I will be sharing the ugliness of acid washed jeans in a day or so, so be sure to check back!

Secret Shawl

I am working hard on a secret shawl project. I can't say who or what its for, but it's knitting up super nicely.

What else is new? Springtime is here and that means long hours at work from well February till end of May.

I went hiking last Sunday at Ravine Gardens, a beautiful Florida State Park. There are over 93000 azalea plants there. Only about half were in bloom when I was there. The cooler weather this winter has slowed the blooming of my most favorite flower.

I am working on numerous projects besides the shawl. I finished a pair of socks last night, and am working hard to finish a pair for a friend, Carrie. Its only taken me a year to get it done.

Snoopy and Mo are getting along well still. Snoopy has taken to sitting in my room looking out into the hallway and barking when he wants Mo to come play with him. This happens about 3 times a week, at the oddest hours. Like this morning at 5am. It is so odd, because Snoopy is not like most beagles. He doesn't howl at all, and doesn't bark often.

That's all I have for today. I am hoping for some crazy posts next week, (after all my birthday is around the corner)

how do my tonsils look

Snoopy and Mo have become friends and daily they have hour+ long wrestling matches. It looks like Snoops is going to bite off Mo's head or maybe MO is going to bite off Snoopy's nose.

Snoopy tries to be very gently with Mo since Snoopy is a bit bigger I think he knows he has to be. Now Mo, fights dirty. He will act like he is tired and will lay down. As soon as Snoopy lets his gaurd down, Mo jumps up ready to attack again. It's great fun watching them.
