Why is life so dang hard

Why does life have to be so dang hard sometimes, i try everyday to  think positive and to not be a burden to anyone.

 lately all i do is sit here and feel like my life is passing me by. Its just so hard dealing with all of this pain and stress. since hubby retired last July  life has been  very different. while i know it takes adjustments  he is driving me BATTY  I feel like i have no time to myself  no  me time have not even been able to work with my  beads and make more jewelry.  its depressing and i wish  that i had not encouraged him to retire  now(although he really needed to) i wish somehow i could  get a job but even if i could he does not want me to

sorry for venting   i am just very down today,  last night son invited us to dinner and he didn't feel good so we didn't go and today i was told to tell him we would be over but not for  dinner so i guess  i don't get my  afternoon off even   and will have to cook another dinner   sigh  ok  nuff whining   thanks for listening ya all are awesome hugs and love to my friends Vicki
timmy  turtle i made for a friend :)

What a summer its been :)

summer is gone  but not  forgotten by far, this year has been  a  strange one, yet  not in a bad way.

first off  hubby retired   july 1st after 42 years  so now while i use to have some "ME" time now its all  "our" time  which is hard for me to adjust to.

Things have been up and down but  so far  i would say we are adjusting (while slowly  we ARE  adjusting)With this came changes in our medical and while  i was able to keep my doctors(thank you lord)  i did have to switch pharmacys and while  it may not seem a big deal to many to me it was.

when i took my  prescription to the pharmacy to be filled i was accused of "forging" the  prescription and they refused to fill it until calling my doctor, and while i would love to not give these  guys my business they are only one of  very  few who carry my medicine so i am kind of stuck with them. I did give them a 2nd chance and it went  fine the next  time i went in but believe me i was not amused nor happy to be accused of a horrific "in my book"  crime  that  if it WERE  true could have put me in jail for many years. so grrrrrrr  nuff about the bad.

on to the good, while hubby and i did not really go anywhere  (our kids did a bit of traveling so  we  stayed around to take care of the  house and furkids  they take care of)  we did have some  fun   just  hanging out  and enjoying life with the kids.

we did do another garden at  kids house as the house here  is not a  good place for a garden (and they have a huge one all ready  dug so why not share it hehe)

i planted green beans  both pole and  bush,  peppers  onions  scallions(which is a mild form of  onion)  garlic tomatoes  cuumbers and all the herbs to go with it.   here is a few pics of the tomatoes  (they taste as good as they look)
we also had loads of pretty flowers and  here are a  few pictures you can enjoy of those

and last but not least to  end the summer what better way than a  concert by one of my  favorite bands  "The Eagles"

saw them  at Seattle  center  at Key Arena and let me tell you they were  fantastic  my special thanks to my kids for   letting their old mom   hang out with them and enjoy the wonderful concert

In  closing i just want to tell all of my  friends and   especially my  family i love you guys and hope that  fall will be as much fun as  summer. I have been busy  working on  items for sale and also for friends   hoping to  have another craft fair we can go to soon but not sure if it will happen or not, sadly my pain level has gone up and while i love to crochet to  avoid it  my shoulder and elbow on my right arm has been  acting up so may have to learn how to do it all left handed  bewahahahaha   ya all know how i am NEVER give up 
Peace and love to ya all   come back soon and  post a  greeting if ya all read this   bye for now    love Vicki

July  2013

Its been some time since i blogged, lots of things have happened and been going on since april, one of the biggest is my hubby  retired after  42 years yes 42 years of working for the same employer and   as a reward they are  going to name  a building after him in the complex where he worked  how awesome is that!!!

we are adjusting to being together all the time and its  nice but sometimes a bit  crazy hehe. 

while i  do have some time to myself  not as much as i am use to but again i know it will take time

as for crocheting i have been busy making toys yes toys hehe   for some friends on ravely i have made  these cute dragons as a swap for yarn i love  (like i need more yarn right?)  here are a couple pictures of them

i am also  of course working on my favorite charity of making hats for people who have suffered from brain trauma and those who have had to have surgery  to help fix whatever was wrong here is one i finished recently
and am working on another  if anyone wants to help make these  you can contact me at this blog and i will tell you where i send them or you can donate at your local hospital if they have a collection site(and if they don't ask if they will set one up)

and lastly i am just enjoying the summer weather and all my  beautiful flowers  here are some of those for your enjoyment

Happy July :) peace love and happiness to everyone   and happy  crocheting to those who love it as much as i do :)

APRILS musings

HI  everyone  been a  bit since i posted i know but  not alot going on to blog about. 

Trying to  organize  the house after bringing so many of our belongings from the other house  that  son is going to buy, and its sure hard to move from a house the size of  that one to this tiny little house  under a  thousand square feet , actually  under  800 sq feet and NOOO storage so i have to get rid of alot of stuff.

I have so many  crochet and knit mags and books patterns ect  going to sell the ones  i dont need or want(will be a lot)so when i finally do get them cataloged and priced will   post a  link to the  numbers and names.

Also  yarn and fabric will be for sale.   need the room and the money so  my loss can be your gain !!!

That said i am   dying to go to hobby lobby  just to  check it out and see what they have, i promise to be good.

I have been making jewelry and  crocheting  lots of fun things  right now am working on a  dragon amigarumi and its soooooo cute. I am making it for a  friend in  Toronto and she loves  dragons and asked if i could make her one. i said sure no problem.

The sun is shining today and that makes me happy, been  a long cold winter and am ready for  some nice weather, suppose to hit   70 tomorrow which is   awesome  must  find my shorts and   tank tops 

Hope your  day is going good and will leave you with some  awesome pictures  Enjoy  and have a  fantastic  day  hugs from me to you :)
