Magic Loop

Today a wonderful lady from church starting teaching a few of us how to knit socks using the "magic loop". Now, I've tried to knit socks on double pointed needles but I seem to get confused as I get to the ankle and usually throw the needles and yarn in a bag and just start on something else. Not today! Fran is wonderful and is a great teacher. We'll be spending the next three weeks learning to knit socks! I think I'll keep these socks for myself :)

The Waiting Begins

It's official, we are on the waiting list for a new addition to our family. We chose a great breeder and we can't wait! I will feel as if we are expecting a real baby, the wait list is usually about 6 months!!
We decided on a boy this time; picking out a boy name will be fun :). This is what a Cockapoo looks like.....aren't they just the cutest thing you've ever seen?

Busy Spring.....

This month has been a busy month. Husband and I went to Glade Springs, WV Palm Sunday weekend. Had a nice time and weather was perfect. Since being home, I've emptied my sons room and painted (he's away at college -Purdue), cleaned and moved everything back into his room. Man, boys are really messy :)
Once a month, I usually send my daughters a little package of hand made goodies. For Easter I sent them placemats, coasters, and some knitted dish clothes. My son received cookies, snacks and a little bit of candy for Easter.
What are you sending or giving your loved ones for Easter?

Hope you have a Happy Easter!

A Longing for.......

A new addition to our family, a puppy! I never thought after losing our beloved Abigail Rose, that I'd want or think of wanting a new puppy, but the past few weeks, that's all I've been thinking about. I can't get the idea out of my head. I've even had dreams about our Abby and a new puppy. Abby tells me it's ok to get a new puppy and that she will always remain in our hearts.
It is so strange to hear the door bell ring and not hear a bark that goes along with it. Abby was a great "let me know when someone was coming" kind of dog. She was not a guard dog! She was so loving that we always joked that she'd go home with an intruder instead of protecting the house.
Our house is so quiet now, we have 2 sweet cats, but that don't bark at certain noises, they actually run when the door bell rings! They were both stray kitties that found our home and they have been great additions to our family, one is 9 and the other is 2 1/2, but there is nothing better than to have your dog come over lay her head on your lap and just look up at you asking you to pet her head!
We are looking for a smaller puppy than our golden retriever was, and I've had my eyes on a cockapoo. A friend from church adoption a Goldendoodle from Carriage House Cockapoo and she said they are a great breeder. NO PUPPY MILL!
I'm hoping that by the end of the week we will have filled out an application and made a deposit on a new puppy...wish us luck!
