a bit better this week

Spent a lot of money this week. First we got a new toaster and iron because the old ones were falling apart. Then we got a new lawn mower (sadly it didn't come with a hot guy that will actually mow the lawn for me) $$$Last, my old monitor decided to go blank so I now have a Samsung 19" LCD $$$ it was the cheapest one at Future Shop. I probably should have shop around a bit more but my computer was turned on and the monitor was not for me to log off and shut down so I had to act fast ^_^.

On thursday and friday my nephew had to dress up as a person form medieval times so I made him these out of cardboard and tin foil. His mother wanted him to be a prince, I wanted to turn him into a dragon........

My socapalooza sock is going pretty well. I'm done the back of the heel then got confused by the pattern so I'll have to wait till tomorrow to check with CraftyBean about what I am doing ^_^

Marti, I'm using the Hedara pattern from

My next few days will be pretty busy for I will be working at my second job as a cashier thursday, friday, and saturday. Thankfully I get Canada Day and the two days after off.

It has not been a good week

First off I woke up on Wednesday to find my fridge not cool and the freezer only cold.... my ice cream(s) was everywhere. So I went to put some stuffs into one of the 2 deep freezers I have in the garage when I noticed that one of them was only cool as well. had to call repair man and he suggest that we get new ones instead of trying to fix them. $$$$!

The next day I woke up and found the house really quiet....there was nothing comming out of my vents. So I went to the basement to check and the furnace looked fine the lights were all on and the digital thermostat looked fine so I turned th etemp down to 15 degrees C to see what would happen and nothing did so I turned it up to 25 th enext day to see and nothing happened. So had to call repair guys again. $95 later (no idea what he did I think it was one switch) it was back on.

Last night, I went to mow the lawn. First it was out of gas so I had to go out to get more. Then as I was mowing the front side (I like to do th eback first) when all of a sudden there was this dip on my lawn and a metel thing was poking out the mower got caught a bit. I turned it off as soon as I heard a noise but it was too late. The motor is now making this really loud noise and shakes a lot. Had to use the trimmer for the rest of my lawn. My arms and back hurts like hell now. The thing that was poking out was part of a gas line or something. Nothing I could do about it except put more top soil by it to "lift" the lawn back up.

I had rushed to finish this for my Mother's friend at work thinking that she is working the next day but she didn't have to go to work for the next 3 days. *sigh*
So very tired, there's a staff party tonight, I don't think I will make it.

On a brighter note, I've been doing pretty good on my Sockapalooza4 sock. Almost done the cuffs and then it's onto the heel. *gasp!*
