I finally decided to go ahead and get my own domain name for my blog and not list it as a sub-domain of our family website starrzz.com. Please update any of your links to:
I will also be redirecting starrzz.com/blogstarr to this new domain.
Thanks for being a loyal friend, fan and reader!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends in the States! It’s a big day for many people across the Country! We will be having dinner at my Mother in Law’s house tomorrow but I am in charge of making a few things!
- Dinner Rolls
- Sweet Potato Pie
- Yummy peas
Everything should turn out nicely ~ at least in my head it will all turn out perfect! Looking for a great dinner roll recipe now. If I find a great one I will share. I think I am going to do a quick search on some of my favorite food blog sites!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving Day and give thanks to all that we have in this world!
I give many thanks for my family and friends!
Until next time!
I have been so busy the last few weeks with my first wedding cake that I have not had time to crochet. And then when I finished with the cake, my right arm was in bad shape! I honestly think I have a pinched nerve that gets aggrivated when I overuse the arm. My husband literally forbid me to crochet for a week!!! Therefore I have many WIP’s! Here are the two I need to finish quickly!
The first is a diagonal box stitch blanket of which I am testing the pattern. Thank goodness I have another few days or even a week to finish. It’s the pink one.
The second is the Bernat CAL I have been working on since it started on September 22, 2010. We’re given weekly clues to crochet squares then by the end, which was today’s clue, we are given a diagram on how to put the squares together for an afghan. I WILL FINISH – before Christmas as I am making it for someone! Fingers Crossed!
Check em out! Hopefully I will have finished pictures in the near future. You can see all of my projects on Ravelry – finished and unfinished.
Until next time,
Halloween has come and gone and Thanksgiving is knocking on our door! And the best time of year,especially for all the kids, is Christmas! There are only 40 days until the big day as you can see by the counter I have added to my site.
I am one of those people who is not so politically correct at Christmas. I say MERRY CHRISTMAS! It’s been Christmas time during December for as long as I can remember. If you know someone of another faith or someone who celebrates a different holiday, then please wish them a Happy Kwanzaa or Happy Chanukah or whatever they celebrate! But if I don’t know for sure, then you will hear Merry Christmas from me! It’s not out of disrespect for anyone, but it’s what I grew up with, therefore that is what I am going to say.
It’s a holly jolly time of year and I am trying to prepare myself! I have gifts to finish crocheting, lots of baking and cakes and of course gifts for my family. I also want my kids to remember what Christmas is truly about, and they do. I told Isabelle the other day it was time to go through her toys and share with the kids less fortunate than her. She seemed to understand that a bit more this year, now that she is the ripe old age of 4! She was also looking at a toy book from Walmart and picked out just about everything in the book to ask for from Santa. I asked her, Do you think Santa will bring you all of those toys? She said, no, he should only bring me one or two and make sure he has plenty for all the other kids! She wowed me with that answer!
It will be time to start decorating before you know it! I am ready to get it done now so I don’t have to worry about it later! The hubs won’t let me put anything out before Thanksgiving though! Guess I will wait until that weekend.
When do you start decorating? What kind of traditions to you do each year, if any? Are there any favorite recipes you like to cook?
Until next time,
