Wild and Crazy ~


 
Can you believe another year is coming to a close?  These years are passing much too quickly. Remember in 1999 as we were approaching the new millennium all the computer problems that were predicted?  Some thought our world would come crashing down.  And tomorrow it will be 2017.  In an eye blink.  WOW!
 
Normally on New Year's Eve, I prefer to stay home and just relax.  Maybe drink a little wine, hook a little and watch a little tube.  This year I decided I'd like to go out.  Call me crazy.  My idea of eating out on NYE ~
 
 
Little cheeseburger with tomatoes, grilled onions, grilled jalapenos and light ketchup ~ YUM!  And don't forget the fries :)  That way we can get home and still have time to drink a little wine, hook a little and watch a little tube.  We are currently watching The Man in the High Castle, an Amazon Prime series.  It is riveting!
 
Speaking of hooking, tonight I will start on My Garden by Woolen Memories.  The pattern size is 22" x 43" which will be the largest pattern I've hooked to date.  I'm not convinced this is what I really want on my frame, but I must start on something!
 
 
I'd like to thank each and everyone of you for taking the time out of your busy lives to read my blog.  Your comments and emails are much appreciated.  You make it all worthwhile.
 
My wish to you is health, happiness and prosperity in 2017.
 
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

  2. You have been such a blessing to my 2016 in fact, what kept me sane this year would be you and your kind listening ear. So thank you for that.
    I wish you the best in 2017 and I hope you get your lovely hamburger. Your new rug pattern looks wonderful. Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year! I love reading rug hooking bloggers even though I don't blog myself. I am starting my biggest rug to date (Christmas gift from hubby) 23 x 49, the pattern is vertical so hope it won't be too much of a hassle, guess I need to work top to bottom. Be looking forward to your progress through out the year on your pattern. I'm sure you'll finish yours first.

  7. Dear Lauren, your New Year Eve's plan sounds perfect... I'm just sitting here by myself and that's not so exciting and I have nothing on the frame yet.

    Your rug is a biggie but I know you'll get that done in no time. It's a nice one.

    Enjoy your quiet evening with wine, hook and tube.
    Happy New Year.
    PS, thanks so much for the thoughtful card. What a surprise. You're a rare treasure.
    Love,
    Julia

  8. Almost as big as the one I'm working on. Your blog is a highlight for my day and enjoy reading yours. I'm not leaving my house even for a burger. My dinner will be pasta sauce over a zuchinni veggie mix topped with pasta sauce. Oh, and I already have a glass of red by my side and will be in bed before 10 p.m.

  9. Oops, I repeated myself as I didn't proof read it. Took a break to check out what Amazon Prime Time was then went back to writing my comment. So duplicated my words....DUH.

  16. Reading the comments above, I think several have already cheered in the new year lol...or turned off spell check... I have never had a 5 Guys burger...but the Mr. raves about them. Put that on my bucket list. And, oh...I remember Y2K vividly... I can't tell you how many files were backed up every which way from Sunday at work...you know, "just in case." Wow...17 years ago.... Amazing.... Well, back to the Twilight Zone... Can you believe I actually saw an episode I had NEVER seen before in the how many every years I've been spending my NYE watching it??? Woo hoo! This year's gotta be good. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  17. Five Guys burgers and fries are my favorite comfort food! Always have a delicious meal there! Good choice for a rug start.... I've had my eye on that pattern for awhile. Looking forward to seeing your progress! Happy New Year!

And your blogger friendship.....it means a lot!
