A room with a view!

So hubby and I wanted a sun room and had one added on the house this past fall. Well I must say even though its not quite done I still love that room. Especially on days like this...

Images are thumbnails and clickable for a close up view of the snow !!!
So Finally some snow this winter!! It looks soooo pretty but I am glad we didn't get a lot this year. But to sit in the sun room and see the snow falling was really wonderful. And the view is really pretty, so clean and white. And I have a large backyard so its really something when it looks like this. But the rain is supposed to come so it will probably be gone by tomorrow but it was nice. Off to have some hot chocolate!!

When will the house be done???

So here I am looking at my dead yard and hearing the wind blow and think.... This Sucks!!! I am not a winter person, the only good thing about winter is I knit/crochet/spin more. I dont like snow at all, not fond of cold weather and would rather be outside in my new sunroom. Right now my DH and I are in the middle of redecorating, you see its like this....
I had to get a couch for the sunroom and also I wanted a couch for the den. The loveseat in the den was just not comfy and I hated it, and since I am the one who sits in the den it matters. So while hunting for 2 couches we decided it would make more sense to just get new couches for the living room and put those 2 in the other rooms. We have 7 year old "new" couches in the living room. For some reason no one uses the living room, probably because there is not a TV in there. So thats how this whole thing started! Then it was new lamps because the lamps we had didnt match the couches and we had just gotten new tables for the living room so they were good. Then it was a new area rug because the other one wasnt just right!! And of course the carpet no longer matched so we are getting new carpet. This sun room is getting very expensive!! But the couches we found are just perfect, here is a picture of the loveseat. We bought 2 couches because my living room is long and needs 2 couches rather than a loveseat and chair. But what a cool set.You cant see it on this picture but the fabric has little "bubbles" embosed on the fabric. They kind of look like champagne bubbles. I love the chrome feet!! So hopefully by Easter all will be done. Right now its just trying to put all this together. The sunroom still has to be tiled, we bought porclian tile for that at a bargin!! Then the carpet then we can get the couches. But what a hassel trying to find everything. All because I hated my loveseat in the den!! Mind you I have lived in this house for 17 years and redecorated a number of times. Hubby and I get bored so we change things alot. I am on my 5th kitchen set and this will be my 3rd living room set. Carpet, well lets see.... berber, teal, black, rasberry and now purple!! Den... have had 3 couches in there so far and recarpeted 4 times so this will be the 5th recarpet job. On my 2nd bedroom set but ready for a new one LOL. The color of my bedroom has changed quite a few times too!! And thats not even mentioning the outside which we are constantly doing something. Although we did take last year off, no big projects no crazy yardwork nothing! Now its back to work. So thats what I have been up to and of course lots of knitting and stuff. But right now off to do some errands. Till next time have fun!!

I am Rabbit!!

This does sound just like me LOL!! Gotta love these tests, thanks Melanie aka Tealeaves on ravelry. I get these tests from reading her blog and just love them.

Your Score: Rabbit

You scored 21 Ego, 14 Anxiety, and 18 Agency!

IT was going to be one of Rabbit's busy days. As soon as he woke up he felt important, as if everything depended upon him. It was just the day for Organizing Something, or for Writing a Notice Signed Rabbit, or for Seeing What Everybody Else Thought About It. It was a perfect morning for hurrying round to Pooh, and saying, "Very well, then, I'll tell Piglet," and then going to Piglet, and saying, "Pooh thinks--but perhaps I'd better see Owl first." It was a Captainish sort of day, when everybody said, "Yes, Rabbit " and "No, Rabbit," and waited until he had told them.

You scored as Rabbit!

ABOUT RABBIT: Rabbit is generally considered Clever by his many friends and relations. He is actually a much better reader and writer than Owl, but he doesn't consider it worth mentioning. Instead, Rabbit's real talent lies in Organizing Plans. He organizes rescue parties, makes schemes to reduce Tigger's bounciness, and goes on missions to find out what Christopher Robin does when he's not at the Hundred Acre Woods. Sometimes, however, his Plans do not always go as Planned.

WHAT THIS SAYS ABOUT YOU: You are smart, practical and you plan ahead. People sometimes think that you don't stress or worry, but this is not the case. You are the kind of person who worries in a practical way. You think a) What are my anxieties about and b)what can be done about them? No useless fretting for you. You don't see the point in sitting around and waiting for things to work out, when you could actually work them out today and save yourself a lot of time and worry. Your friends tend to rely on you, because they know that they can trust you help them work things out.

You sometimes tend to be impatient with people who are less practical in their ways. You don't have much patience for idiots who moan about things but never actually DO anything about them. You have high expectations of everyone, including yourself. When you don't succeed at something, or when something goes wrong despite your best efforts to prevent it, you can get quite hard on yourself. You need to cut yourself some slack and accept that everyone has their faults, even you, and THAT IS OKAY. Let yourself be faulty, every now and then, for the sake of your own sanity.

Schools Out!!

So I took this quiz and this is what it says.....
So I know why I am at my best at around 4:00 pm!! I also now know why I like working nights. I have always been a night person and dont see that changing any time soon.
On the knitting/crocheting front,,, I have been doing prayer shawls for my church and still doing my other projects. Plus I am in the middle of spinning my pound of colonial from copper moose. Its wildberry and I got it a while ago but just now spinning it. It is so sutle and really beautiful. Cant wait to see it plied up, I think I may do three ply with this. I dont have pics right now but nothing really complete yet either. Unlike some people I am not a super fast knitter and I dont commute by train so I dont get to knit to and from work either. I am so jelous of people who commute!!
Well off to bed, its been a rough day. I had my mamogram appt today and the technician was just BRUTAL!! Oh boy did she flatten the girls today!! I had imprints of the pattern from the machine on them!! But its a necessary evil and at least its done. Now I have to wait 2 weeks for the results, fun!! But I am not worried I figure if there was something there that had to be taken care of the tech would have made the doctor look at it right away. So have a great weekend everyone.
