Knitters!

I just got this pattern. It's free right now, and there's a coupon code for 15% off any three skeins of worsted on the same site. So basically, free pattern, plus the sale yarn to make it.

I don't like the way crochet looks in general. But I think this is very pretty and would make a cute headband

Hello Writerly Peoples!

I just found out that one of my bestest RL friends (who moved away from me last year /sadface ) has written a book and is working on more of them!!

So, if ya'll wouldn't mind throwing her in a circle and saying hi, I'm sure she would appreciate that. The one she's talked to me a little about is an urban fantasy, if you need her writing flavor for classification purposes.

Hugs to my bestie +Caitlin Murray

+Rhonda Burke That's why I bought him. I found him at a local(sih) craft store. I'd imagine that ones near you would be having sheep too, especially with Easter crafting season upon us. :D

Okay hive mind I desperately need help.

My son gave his bearded dragon a too hot bath and we think he got water in his lungs in his freak out attempt to get it of the water. He's breathing normal now but he either can't move or is not moving his back legs.

We've put him under his heat lamp and have been checking in him often. He seems to be pulling himself along with his front legs and otherwise lethargic.

The vet isn't open until tomorrow and I will be calling her first thing when she opens.

Is he going to be okay? If he's paralyzed will he have to be put down? Is there anything we can do other than shit on our asses and watch him to see if he lives?

No worries. He'll do alright on the Oxbow. It actually tastes pretty good - the herbivore tastes quite aniseedy, though the carnivore bit doesn't taste so good. 

Mind you, bearing in mind these guys love locusts raw... eh.

ACK! I Broke Google!

In trying to find a way to help my friend add people to her circles, I some how have managed to set my stream to the old old style of one post in a big long line. Oh my gosh!!! 

Does anyone know how to get the 3 columns back? I can't find the setting for it where it was last time I saw it. And every other place I've looked is a dead end. HALP!?

TOday is my husband's birthday, and my 11 year old just showed the front of the card that he is making to me. There is a zombie pinata. We are doing something right.

I went with my two kids (9 and 4) on a Saturday morning and found out that they were understaffed by one person. You would never know if someone hadn't told me! We planned to just browse around, pick up a few notions, and maybe a new pattern. We were there for two hours, and loved every minute!! I would come again for the fantastic fabrics that I found while there. So many of them are adorable, cute, funky, and some others are down right hilarious! My son loved the mustache fabric and the matching buttons. I love that everything is clearly labeled and stored by fabric type, and the quality is SO much better than the Joann's and Walmarts. It's a bit far for me to travel there whenever I need something, being about 40 miles away, but I will make my lists and go when I've got enough stuff to make the gas spent worth it. If it weren't for the very friendly and helpful staff, I don't think I would do this. I felt like a pest being new to sewing, but they were just so amazing. They helped me choose a fabric, color, and matching the color of the notions and thread. I got a tour of the shop, and despite my many, many, many, many apologies for my kids playing in the rolls of fun fur, I was told again and again that it was fine and not to worry about it. I even got some recommendations for some gluten free pretzels for my son's allergies, and the name of soy-free chocolate chips for my allergies. And a recommendation for a great bakery nearby for lunch. I cannot stress enough how wonderful the employees are, and how helpful, even when they are short staffed. I'm over the moon about the fact that you can order online, and having been to the shop, I know that they really do care about what they're doing, and know what they're doing. If you want to place an online order, go ahead and check that box to have them pick up some coordinating thread for you. They do a great job.

I grew up not too far from Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, and I went in knowing this was a smaller zoo. I was a little underwhelmed with the aquarium until we got to the shark exhibit. That was pretty cool. I wish the habitats were bigger for the animals, as they all seem quite small, but the only way to get those is for the zoo to get more funding, and with the Seattle zoo not too far away, I'm not sure what the chances of that happening are. The only thing we didn't get to see were the polar bears because the glass for their habitat was being replaced. I did love, however, that they don't charge additional fees to any of the exhibits like they do in the larger zoos. The staff is really nice, though all of the concessions except for the cafe were shut down (it was November). The entire grounds were kept clean, and it doesn't smell like poop, even by the elephants. :) We plan to go again closer to Christmas when they have the entire zoo lit up at night.

I went just before the evening rush hour, and there was only one other person in there other than the 3 employees. Everyone was very nice. Even though this was my first time there, the woman who did my nails (full manicure on my real nails) made her best attempt at conversation. We talked about weather and family, nothing controversial or uncomfortable. My nails came out really nice, and she never hurt me once when trimming the rough skin off my fingers or scraping the dye (I work with dye, especially lots of reds and black, without gloves) from under my nails. I'll totally be going here again.
