What a day!

Wow, that was quite a day.  The weather went from raining cats and dogs to snow squalls and very cold temperatures again.  What is with Mother Nature these days?  What is she trying to prove with all these changes?  LOL, enough of it already.

I had 2 appt's today, well actually 3 if I count the one this evening with my hubby and first thing this morning I got a call from the doctors office saying the doctor was sick and she had to cancel.  Great, i've been trying to get in for ages and now they cancel.  Then this afternoon, I had my app't with my pain specialist for my back injections.  Drove 45 minutes to get there and when I walked in the receptionist greeted me with the fact that the clinic had been cancelled but no one informed her.  She had tried calling me but I didn't hear my cell while driving. Gosh, if it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck. So now I have to wait until Feb 11th.  Another 2 weeks which is not good as that means I will be 5 weeks without the needles.

I started a job back in October, part time working in Retail again.  I enjoy the job but it's just not enough for me.  It is a new store that opened, in fact we were all hired to work on stocking the store and opening it.  I really enjoyed that as I've done it previously with another store.  I work with a good group of women and now a man who is our new Manager.  That is a long story that I won't get into but the store and the staff are much better off with this new manager.  Too bad it took 2 1/2 months to realize they needed to make changes.

I've applied at a few places in the last couple of weeks and just hoping something comes along. Something right here in Woodstock would be nice.

Wet weather

This weather is creating havoc all over.  Flooding, wet basements, foggy driving conditions and sickness.  Below freezing last week and I mean very cold and warmer this week.  I think we have had none stop rain for a couple days now.  Although it is stopped right now.  It's days like this when the aches and pains are really bad.  I need summer or at least warm, dry weather.  Today is supposed to get up around 13 but still way to damp for me.
This is the weather that makes you want to just grab your knitting or crocheting and curl up on the couch with a good movie to watch!  That sounds so nice but before I can do that I need to do some housework.
Yesterday, while sitting in the waiting room at the hospital where I was with my parents while my dad was having a spot removed from his back.  There were a few women along with myself who were sitting there with their knitting needles working away to make a sweater, dishcloth and a frilly scarf.  I had my cowl i've been working on and my crocheting with me.  I finished knitting the last few rows of my cowl and then did some crocheting.  Funny how many others carry their crafts wtih them as well.  The one lady was saying it was like having our own knitting circle!  Do you carry your knitting or other crafts with you when you are going somewhere where you know you will be sitting waiting?  I do sometimes but I also get very intimidated by others.  I have always worried that others may consider my knitting not good enough to be carried around with me.  My daughter very politely told me that I was being silly and not to worry what others thougth. So now I do carry my WIP's with me more often.

A new year

So 2013 is here and the month of January is almost gone. I'm a horrible blogger but once again this year I will attempt to be better at it.

I'm still knitting and crocheting.  I've finished several items since last posting.  I really need to go to Ravelry and update there as well since I haven't done that in ages either.
My daughter has started KSiell Boudoir Photography  Beauty and Boudoir Photography.   Be sure to check out some of her work. BEAUTIFUL!
She also has KShiell Photography!  You won't be disappointed if you choose to have your photos taken by Kandice.
