Sandy hit WV

We are doing fine. A little inconvenienced with no power, no water & no heat but the kids & I have had a great day. They had a Monopoly marathon while I worked on my first "knitted knocker" for a friend.

Stay safe, Friends!

The Beauty of a Detour

Yesterday we opted for the scenic route and today we were asked to do a "double check" at my parent's lake house. We ended up at Valley Falls State Park. Hope you enjoy the beauty of our autumn in West Virginia!

A Pair of Socks

I finished my first pair of socks this afternoon. All of the time I've spent waiting for soccer practice to finish & pre-game warm ups that I've had to sit through have finally paid off. I'm especially proud of the fact that both socks are pretty much the same size! Yea, Me!

Wanna see 'em?

Here they are--

Things are finally settling down

Soccer season is almost at an end and I almost have my first pair of socks finished. I have worked on them all season while sitting at the various soccer practices & games where we had to be there an hour before the start. Hopefully I will have a finished pair to show before the week is over.

Homecoming is over. My baby girl had her first real date. Isn't she beautiful?!
Our oldest boy has gone the last three years but is smart enough to keep away from the drama. He has more fun just hanging out with his friends.

I started a new job, it complicates the car shuffling, but I'm enjoying it.

Perhaps I will be able to do a little more blogging now that I'm getting the hang of this new phone.

Hope to be back again real soon.
