I haz Memphis Tennessee

After a 5 hour drive that was nice, good weather and uneventful.

And a great time at [personal profile] lady_karelia 's tonight.  We've had the most wonderful Indian dinner courtesy of her husband who is a fabulous cook!  Pappadums, rice, vegetable curry, paneer (indian cheese) curry, chicken curry.  Add some wine.  Some wonderful friends like [personal profile] calypsobard  and socially_awkrd as well as blue_paris and  frineds who are totally great of [personal profile] lady_karelia 's family and it's been a perfect evening.

I'm learning how to make feta cheese which is not as difficult as I thought it could be.

Listening to Gotan Project playing currently and working on some crochet as we finish the evening with butterbeers.

Can't ask for a better vacation.

Tomorrow proves to be just as good

Well I've been meaning to post all this and planned last Friday to update but my internet went down and couldn't be fixed till Monday night.  But finally, here it is.

Firstly, I had promised some photos of awesome squeemail received and here they are.

From [livejournal.com profile] jennbrad52 , the most wonderfully warm and comfy pair of crocheted Maryjane slippers which I wear all the time at home.

The same day, I also received a package from [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit that contained the gorgeous painting she did of a water dragon (my own Nessie picture :) ) and the awesome Halloween banner.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] hardhatcat and I did a personal Twilight Trade and her package arrived full of fabulous goodies   A paperpieced Twilight Bag, Twi stationary, Twi Journal all made by her.  Bookmarks, stickers and some LaPush beach fabric.  An Australia pencil set as well as Liquorice Bullets (mmmmmmm  and think chocolate Good & Plenty!), Allsorts (which can be gotten in the US just not where I live) and Tim Tams and yes, I've done my first Tim Tam Slam.  Oh and [livejournal.com profile] ofenjen ?  The new Target in Ft. Smith does not have TimTams :(   She also included a book of dog sweater patterns with a cute set of knitting needles (little dogs on top)

Thank you all for the wonderful squeeness!!!

I've been getting some crochet done...  107 of 200 mini cauldrons done for the OKC Yule Ball... here's 50 of them

A Molly Sweater that Accio_lily on Leaky Cauldron has been waiting for for months!

Several 12" blocks in a CAL I'm in on Ravelry that will become an afghan for my bedroom and a Team Edward Tote that is the prize for the newest [livejournal.com profile] twilight_crafts  challenge

And my squeemail this wee was my copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard that I won on friday (just before the internet died) at Hogshead.org!.  However, I have yet to read it as dear hubby grabbed it last night and hasn't finished yet.

Tonight we're going out.  The place we went to on Halloween has the same group coming back for "Celtic Christmas Night' and we're going to it for a while.  Weekend is mostly just relaxing at home and crafting. 

Also spent time updateing my pages on Ravelry, Cut Out and Keep and Deviant Art as well as MyCraftivity.com  I was rather excited when my internet came back on to see that one of my projecs on Cut Out and Keep is in the top 20!  Which is my pizza recipe that I've made since my kids were in school and they love.

Currently been catching up on getting some Molly Sleeves made for other Mollys that are being waited on and the mini cauldrons as well as the other pieces for Mollys.   Also, mailed out my cards for [livejournal.com profile] hardhatcat 's recipe swap this morning at the post office.

Still have to up date on the Metallica concert that was just fantastic!  But now its time to get ready to go out.

...or in this case starts :D

I'm sitting at my friend's kitchen table in Glenwood AR waiting for 5 pm to leave and head on to Little Rock for the Metallica concert tonight! (a birthday present from my hubby in Sept!) So excited, nervous, looking forward to it! And once it starts....

Nothing else matters :D

absinthe - The muse of artists and writers in the late 1800's, the Green Fairy was banned in US for its ingredient of wormwood and has now been made available again with a different variety of said ingredient as Absente.  It is my guilty pleasure on rare occasions.

celtic mythology - A strong celtic heritage leads me to study and learn more about the celtic history, legend and myths (or what others may consider myths.

dracula - The first vampire once known as Vlad the Impaler, aka Prince Vladimir III of Wallachia -- Lord Dracula to others.  His story is told in the writings of Bram Stoker.

E nomine - see above and include:  Vater Unser and Das Omen or often heard being sung by me at random times.

romani - the proper name of the people commonly referred to as gypsies.  Their heritage and Lore are long and known and one I am proud to have connections to through ancestors.  Also known as travellers in the UK

I have the most awesome husband in the world!  He told me my birthday gift would be late simply because it did not go on sale till September 12th.  That was quite fine by me because I really did want Metallica's new cd, first in five years - Death Magnetic.

Well, it wasn't just the cd!

He also got me a ticket to go see them in
Little Rock on November 22nd!


I love my husband :)

As I mentioned in an earlier post, over the past few weeks, I have been the recipient of some fabulous Squee Mail that I can finally share pictures with you now.

Well almost .... I wasn't as patient as others and ate Jen's delicious candies before taking photos :D

Well the first one wasn't actually mailed but my husband's gift for me this year.  He found me a black and silver stocking and a mini one that is black, silver and red.  Three Christmas cds -- Christmas with the Rat Pack, TSO Walmart special edition, and The Three Tenors.  Finally, he got me the original Miracle on 34th Street on DVD.  My three children went together and bought me a new 7mp digital camera for Christmas along with a 2gb memory card :D I have been using it since and it really makes a difference in the photos !

Peek now! )

Some wonderful squee mail from the Crafty Witches, starting with [profile] jennbrad52  a beaded dragon necklace and a hufflepuff crocheted purse!

And of course, there was the package from [personal profile] hp5freak  which contained floo powder, crayons, Hufflepuff wristwarmers and a lovely crocheted snowflake as well as a surprise from [personal profile] quietish  in the form of rum balls and beautiful yarn and the cutest ornament photo of one of her hobbits! Once again, [profile] lezlishae  proved herself Queen of Spellotape (electrical/duct tape) with a Hufflepuff Christmas Card!! While made golden snitch ornaments that she sent with little koala and Aussie calender.

Crafty Witches ROCK! )

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to download this song and get up and dance.  As always if you are caught on video by any members of your IMF team, it will be uploaded to You Tube!  :D lol.  So get up and dance to the Mission Impossible Theme, Techno Remix style!

dragonsinger: (badger bark)
Remember the movie "The Mask" ?  Well if you do you might recognize today's choice from there.  I grew up with a father who had all of Glenn Miller's original recordings and I knew who Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey were before I could name all the presidents :D lol  So its no surprise that I enjoy this song and its similiar Big Band sound.  Hey Pachuco by the Royal Crown Revue from The Mask Soundtrack!

Ok so [profile] lezlishae and [profile] fyrestar1 have started the song a day and invited others to join in.  So here goes.

This goes back to the disco days.. Yes I liked it, Yes I was there and Yes it's not dead. It's a fun and somewhat fact accurate song!  Upbeat and good to dance to.

So Ladies and Gentlemen, without further ado I present Rasputin by Boney M

Since I last posted what I've been up to.  That's because for the past couple of weeks things have been busy and active and hectic and along with trying to complete mollys for friends, I've also had to complete an afghan for a wedding present by this past Saturday.  Joe had a wedding to officiate at our church and I made this for the couple.

And the gift is done on time )
As well as did their programs and a ceremony booklet for Joe to use during the service and then be a keepsake for them after.

wedding graphics )
Also, have been working on some mollys and mailed out three so far so [livejournal.com profile] kadidid, [livejournal.com profile] overcast,  and [livejournal.com profile] lezlishae  watch your mailboxes!!

     Even Umbridge needs a Molly )

Currently just assembled and am putting the trim on[info]kimberly_elf's and have [livejournal.com profile] hpmommy's waiting to be assembled and trimmed.  The body for [livejournal.com profile] hp5freak's is almost done and will be starting another batch of sleeves as I work on more bodies as well.

Taking a break -- well is it a break if you're working on Mollys as you listen? -- Joe and i went back to Sweet Bay Coffee House in Ft. Smith for the celtic music they have on the second Sunday of the month.  It had been a few months since we'd been there so it was a nice way to relax.

Fiddles and bodhrans and flutes, oh my! )

Now, back to work on Mollys!

ETA: By they way if you are keeping count, that's 9 mollys completed! ETAA: because I can't tell an Lj name from a forum name some days *lol*

Step 1. Put your playlist on random.
Step 2. Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
