Oh Ya Baby!!!!

Anyone who knows me very well, knows that I LOVE purses. I have lots. Sometimes I have to hide them and bring them out slowly so no one starts asking questions!! LOL I seen a friend of mine has this on her blog so I'm following suit.

Go here to register for the giveaway as well..... Good luck but you already know that I'm going to win!!!

Frozen Tundra!!

Yep, my butt is still frozen in SD. As a friend so nicely pointed out tonight I could move to CA where it's warm!! Guess I'm one of the weird people of the world. I don't mind the cold as long as I don't have to be out in it for extended periods of time. Like say Milking cows. Then I wouldn't like it so well...........

I've been crocheting on the Oat Coutoure, Seaside blouse. I'll try to get pictures up soon. I have the back done and starting the front. It's the first thing I've ever crocheted to wear. I've crocheted for years, doilys, dolls, etc but never clothing. So we'll see if it fits when I'm done!!

We had an addition to our "farm family". Our new to us black lab (she came to live with us about 1 1/2 mo ago.) Had puppies in the last two days. We found her last night and sadly only 1 puppy survived. She is pretty young so feel lucky to even have 1 survivor. He is a pretty golden pup. when he gets a little bigger I'll take pictures of him too. Hmmm. I'm thinking a good name would be artic, since he was born during the coldest time of the year!!

It's Cold!!!

It's winter in South Dakota
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At twenty-five below.

Oh, how I love South Dakota
When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut!

Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave South Dakota
'Cause I'm frozen to the ground!

Keeping Busy...........

I've been making hats for charity. I joined a group called Save the Children, and have been crocheting baby hats. I have been using the ends of skeins. I also made a scarf for the special olympics but forgot to take a picture of it, what a wonderful feeling that was to send it off. I would love to see a picture of the athlete's and their scarves!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!!
