College/University Started

Hey faithful readers,,,,if I am sorry for the lag this week but alas, College/University resumed this week for the kids and me. I am taking Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing as well as Neural Basis of Speech, and a class that I hope turns out to be and Easy Peasy one….Educational Psychology. I will be in classes on Tues and Thursday from 4pm to 6:45 pm and on Mon and Wed from 7pm to 8:15pm.

Yay ME!!!! If I am not a puddle of goo at the end of the semester it will be a really good thing. I am looking into getting a digital recorder….anyone have any suggestions on a type to buy? I am really going to need it in the A&P class…she talks really fast and I can’t write that fast and forget taking a lap top however I may give that a whirl too as I can type pretty fast!!!!!

On the KAL front:
I am done with the first cuff šŸ˜¦ Sad I know but I gave us until the end of February officially to finish the KAL. So hopefully I will get both mittens done in that time frame and if not…..Well at least I gave it a go right?

The Dashing KAL

I am doing another KAL as well on Facebook with some intrepid knitting friends and I am to the hand portion of it as well gonna start the thumb in about 14 more rounds. ahhhhhh the joys of knitting.

Saturday will still be my regular Farm Day… Will be heading out to Jacobs on Saturday for some well earned R&R and co-hosting the event with Dina another faithful Barnie.

Until next time!


Hello There, It’s Been Awhile

Hi Everyone,

Katie here. Yes, it’s really me!!! It’s been a LONG time since I have posted and I would really love to get this blog up and moving again with my dear friend Hanane! HananeĀ and I have talked about it over the past year or so while I have been absent. I think most of you know my beloved husband was killed and then I had a very serious life threatening illness so blogging was really not on my radar.

HananeĀ emailed me this week and told me about the mitten KAL. I can honestlsy, I am IN!!!! I recently finished a cute pair and guess what…… I gave them AWAY!!!! LOL. I put a pair on my needles last night whileĀ I was at knitting group. This time, they are mine, all mine, bwhahahaha. No seriously! It’s mighty chilly outside at 6 am when I take the dogs out!!! Brrrr……

I will post a picture or two soon. I am doing the “classic mitten”….my favorite pattern. I think I have it memorized.

Talk to you soon! ~Katie

Saturday ROC Day

It turned out great! We had 9 guests. I wish I had taken pictures. I never take pics of out craft day. I really need to do that. Let’s see If I can remember who all was there. Jan, she came late, Elizabeth, Annie, Maggie, Seth, Sandra and Selma and Denise. Elizabeth was working on her plarn bags, Jan was working on a spiral scarf, Denise started something new not sure what it was, Seth was spinning, I finished my Red Dwarf Socks and cast on for a KAL I am doing on Facebook. Annie was working on socks too and Maggie was making squares. There was plenty of yummy food to share and lots of fun talking and knitting. I finished my Red Dwarf socks just to spite Annie. LOL. I cast on for another pair today. WHY? Because I want to learn how to do the after thought heel. So I up to the heel and I have put in the waste yarn for the heel.

Who is looking forward to Thursdays KAL? I know I am. A few people on the Ravelry are going to jump on board. I need to go pick up another pair of double pointed needles and the yarn I want to use for the Maplewood mittens. I don’t know what color I want to make them, I guess the color will jump out at me while I am looking.

Note to self!!!!! Pictures Pictures



OU v Texas aka “The Red River War”

A battle that is fought yearly on neutral territory! By two rival teams one from Oklahoma the other from Texas. The Pride of Oklahoma Football the Sooners and the Longhorns of Texas, square off in this epic battle yearly! During the State Fair of Texas.

Hanane, here I am having lived in Dallas for the past 14years a Okie transplant who still flys her crimson and white proudly. I was born and bred a Sooner Fan could no more stop cheering for OU than I could voluntarily stop breathing.

Katie, a native Bostonian, southern gal at heart, who for some reason only known to God, is a die hard Longhorn fan, but I still love her.

So who will prevail this year on the field of glory. OU or Texas? Why as a true Sooner, I must say OKLAHOMA ALL THE WAY!!!!! BOOMER!!!!! (the Echoing response from thousands of transplant OU fans is of course) SOONER!!!!!

My Corduroy Puppy

My Corduroy Puppy

I have had this puppy since I was like 2years old. He is made from a super soft red corduroy. He use to have felt eyes, nose and tongue, but they have long since been loved away. The inside of his ears are flannel and it has been worn as well.

This puppy use to have a mate, but I think that one was extra loved or tackled at one point by an actual 4 legged puppy and destroy.

So I want to make a few of these puppies and tuck a couple of them away for the “future”

Childhood Memories

I grew up in an old house in Oklahoma, in this old house there was no shower only this old claw foot tub deep and long! I could float in it! It was awesome! Hot, Hot water! It was luscious! So when I saw this picture I just had to post it and write about my memories of that old cast-iron claw foot tub of my youth!

I see a bathroom makeover in my future!!!! I love this!!!!!!!! And I hate my fiberglass glass door bathroom!
