to do to do--things to do this week-finish a project for Miz Winifred then get a box a pack it all up and get another Owl cause the one I sent out to Miz Winifred back in October never came back. So much for recycled birds...

I think the package is going to require something larger to deliver it. I have never sent anything besides myself via floo--i wonder if a package would go..

I am working on the bedford springs shawl with dinner bell ruffle very nice pattern and the malabrigo-stone colourway is just too beautiful...might not give it away as a holiday present.

not sure what is going on with the computer but i can not upload pictures from any of my computers which is torking me off...

so,while i do have the homework done-per sae- i cannot complete it to its full extent

and in the project world---the bag that i worked so hard on last week friday-had an error in the instructions- and a major part was forgotten-so i am debating on whether so rip it out,keep it for myself or make a new one for her....

what torks me off is that as i was putting it together it did not seem right and i just could not put my finger on it until i was done and i mean DONE(cause i spent the entire day cutting and sewing) that there was something wrong-blah--

the bag is great and i like the pattern...just now that i know it is missing a step it will be added

Then off to pilates where i was able to pick what I wanted to work on and it was an hour of LEGS!!!! UGH!

friday?? all ready

Things have been hoping for me this week.
Work does take up the first 5 hours of my day then it is over to St Mungo's to hang out an hour and a half before I do my internship. That is three hours--three times a week plus there is the observation hours that I have not started but need to do.
Getting home muggle style takes an hour and there is not anywhere along the route to do observation. I guess I could hang out in St Mungo's for two hours and get home in time to go to bed to get up and do it all again. Amen.

I am so glad that homework this term can be done via the muggle computers-it is a good thing we can use cross technology and skills. Owls take a bit too long and if your Owl as mine is-is a bit difficult-things tend to get a bit messed up along the way. And that my friend is the problem with recycled birds, they tend to miss their old owners and take it out on the new. Not sure what the issue is I give it plenty of fresh pinkies all the way up to 1 year old mice plus add in a few other small animals that I was told she likes but still-A-TT-I-T-U-D-E!!

Next week I hope will be better and I will be able to settle down into the busy schedule I set for myself. Perhaps I should make every Friday a date Friday with Wisty. I was a grand way to spend a few hours this afternoon with her. She has such tremendous energy it is great way to revitalize! And she is a great person to shop with because she has about as much impulse control as I do....

6 things needed for going into hiding

5 things I would take with me when I go into hiding.

1-several fake passports and ID cards--because if i am hiding i do not want to use my real name.
2-crap loads of pre-paid cell phones.--because i do need to my family & friends even if it is for a short one minute
3-my lock pick set-because i might need to stay in a few model homes while in hiding--far cheaper than a hotel
4-credit cards-these will go along with #1-
5-post cards from exotic islands sent to various people done via Internet using my fake credit cards
6-yarn--and a new ravelry become someone's cousin---;)

but if you really want to find me, i will be in Guatemala with the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy

Sunday, September 19, 2010


the sticks are flying and owls are dropping-which is a good thing since for the first time i feel on top of things--so you know what that means....

Homework is going to bury me and my internship at St Mungo's will pick up hours and then I will really fall behind or Dean will come to visit and then I will get all distracted and ....

busy busy

today i spent sewing up drawstring bags. i did a bit of knitting but that is not where i was feeling creative.

Tomorrow I might spend the day following Winifred H around to see what she is up to and likes to do. For better house feelings we were given someone from another house to spoil. I am guessing she can not be too bad since we have the same birthdate.

I am ready for a nap, something is blooming outside my tower window and it does not agree with me.

New House

I am in Ron's house! It fits me perfectly. Maroon and Orange what colours could anyone ask for? I should be out looking for bag patterns but I am here instead. Bad me, so off I go.

Tuesday, September 7, 2010


I just went through the Portkey and found myself right back where I started.
I do have a stamp on my Portpass that says Hogwarts:Admin. 12:20pm.

It is cold, rainy and windy here today and I should have dug out a hat to wear but I was in a bit of a rush this morning. So much to do by the end of the week that I am certain I will forget to bring something with me.

Back-Back in the Hogwarts groove

So the fall finds me back amongst fellow Hogwarts members.
The past year has been busy for me moving into a new to me house out in the country. The Sandhill cranes are calling in the field behind my house. They are LARGE birds and they are LOUD birds.

Isis lost her buddy Marmalade on Valentines day but we found her another buddy and his name is Growler. But she was not happy with him and said she wanted a puppy so a few weeks ago Azazel came to live with us. So far he is living up to his name in the adorable puppy fashion.
Now Bo is lamenting not having his own puppy to play with and he is looking for one for himself. We shall see how this search goes....
