I don't want to make anybody jealous, but I get to go to HAWAII the end of January w/ my DH! lucky me. We went several years (and pounds!) ago, and had such a great time. I remember how lovely it was, and the beautiful fragrances in the air. The sunsets. the giant fish..

anyway, my sassy daughter put my count down counter on my sidebar (training wheels on this blogger's bike!) for me, and I have something wonderful to look forward to during the cold days of winter!

May be?

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.
Quentin Crisp

there is a funny post over at Mother of 8

about her frustrations with a handmade gift she is working on.

I can relate, because I have messed up enough cross-stitches, and failed at crocheting ... have you seen scalloped crocheted leper bandages?

I won't even talk about the time I 'learned to knit' - I was trying to make a simple scarf, and had to tear it apart (ok, my daughter did that for me)and start over. 'Now concentrate on what you are doing' advised my lightning fast knitting teacher. hmmph.

Found this grisly thing yesterday while I was clearing the veggie garden and getting the yard ready for winter:

It is a 'blow' snake, not a rattle snake, thank goodness, and not a very big one at that. Don't know who or what got it's head, maybe one of those big ol' magpies that bully around the neighborhood.
