Weird Winter and other thoughts

On Monday Kansas City set a record high temperature of 74---today it is cold and snowy...Friday morning it is supposed to be 6 degrees.

There has been a change made on my blog---hubby set up a camps and workshop link at the top of the blog where you can check my teaching and vending schedule.  What a man!!!

It has been awhile since I posted so I am doing a bit of catching up---we had a great weekend at the Barn---19 hooker came to hook and party...there was also a red hat group there celebrating a member's 90th birthday the first night and a family group of 25 having a reunion.

Here is the group.

I have been putting off posting the picture of my Karla G. pattern because there are some things I want to change---but in the interest of learning what I am changing I will post the picture as I hooked it at that weekend and them what I changed.

It was a beautiful weekend---check out this picture

I am having classes this morning---not sure if people will show up but I'll be ready of they do...time to put the coffee on.

Today I am celebrating my 63rd birthday---was hoping to go for a run but the weather is not cooperating.  Last weekend I did my 6 mile training run for my upcoming half marathon and this weekend is supposed to be 7 miles---hope it warms up soon.  I have also decided to do a sprint triathlon so I am going to go for a swimming lesson tomorrow morning to get a plan for my swim portion---not too worried about the bike and run portions but haven't swam much for a long time.

Have a great day!


  1. Wishing you a very Happy B-Day!

  2. Anita, my very best wishes for you to have a happy birthday! We are much cooler today too but not 6! Love reading your blog.


  3. Anita ~
    Happy, happy birthday! I admire you for not only your hooking skills but also for your running skills. A triathlon??? I'm even more impressed.
    Hugs :)

  4. Thanks for the Birthday wishes---I did manage a 7 mile training run this morning---plan to get up to 12 miles before the race the middle of April.

    The triathlon is a sprint distance---swim 1/2 mile, bike 10 miles and run 3.1 miles.

    Tonight I am going to hook!

  5. Happy Happy Belated Birthday!!!!!

    Leave it to me to think of food.
