Archive for June, 2008

Well my first time working on a Sunday in the shop certainly proved to be an interesting one. Why, you ask? Oh something about a tornado warning and a massive storm that rolled through the greater Lansing area… *groan*

Thankfully, no damage was done to the shop. One of those big plastic real estate newspaper holder thingamabobs was in the middle of the parking lot but that was about it. No yarn was harmed. hehe.

Those of us who were in the store at the time the sirens went off all gathered in the hallway near the bathrooms with Tate (and knitting, of course…). We were kept updated on the storm via my mother who was sending me text messages from her work (where there was a television to watch for weather updates) and my handy dandy iPod Touch on which I could check Weather.com every few seconds for updates. I would have snapped a picture of us all cozy in the hall but my camera was in my car… darn.

I still haven’t heard for sure if a tornado touched down but I can tell you that my neighborhood is a big fat mess. There are trees down all over the place and power outtages galore. My house didn’t have any damage thankfully but my power was out when I finally made it through the mess to get home. It took a good half an hour or more to get home from the shop (I live about 5 minutes away in good traffic) because the police were blocking off certain streets and trees were blocking others. Craziness.

Aside from all of the crazy around here, things are still crafty. 🙂

Jewelry I made for Brian’s Heathly Heart Club fundraiser in Atlanta this coming Saturday:

My Everlasting Bagstopper for the Knitted Market Bag class I’m teaching in July is coming along nicely… (it’s actually green despite what it looks like in the picture…)

My Mom who not too long ago took Sabrina’s Never Touched a Needle class at the shop finished her first sweater:

And it looks darn cute on Doodlebutt…

Finally… the past week has taught me a few things…

Bubba still enjoys candy and goofing off for the camera. 🙂

Doodlebutt has great Sweaty Hairdos…

He’s also often too sexy for his clothes…

These two make me smile a whole lot…

Ice cream is always better with french fries…

And it IS possible to run the stoplights at a major intersection with a plugged in generator after two nights of massive storms…

Things I learned without pictures… my cousin who had brain surgery this week is pretty darn brave. The Wii Fit is damn fun. Sleeping in a bed with Doodlebutt and Boo is hazardous to my sleep and also my face (getting head butted in the face in middle of the night… so not cool). So You Think You Can Dance makes me cry EVERY week. And… the movie Speed Racer isn’t nearly as bad as people are saying it is especially when you see it with two of the most adorable boys in the world.

So in all, things are okay. A little stormy and a whole lot busy, but okay. 🙂
