E is for…

For this post I wanted to share an old Easter picture of my cousin and I. I’m the brunette on the right. It was taken at my grandmothers house( the house I grew up in) in 1985. 217317_10150164520147572_4994392_n

I was a cute little stinker wasn’t I ? 🙂 I don’t remember this day or any other Easter but looking at this picture, I can safely say we had fun.

As I get older I realize how Santa and the Easter bunny incredibly stupid to try and make Catholic holidays more appealing. Santa has nothing to do with the birth of Christ and the Easter bunny had nothing to with Christ’s resurrection. So why do they share the same date?

Until next time,

C is for …

Charity, Cancer, Comfort Caps for New England. All 3 are connected.

When my mom passed away from Brain Cancer 4 years ago I wanted to do somethinCg for cancer patients going through chemo. A crochet friend of mine made my mom a cap after she had her surgery . And I thought that would be a sweet idea to pay forward.

I looked round a little bit and chose Halos of Hope. I became a partner and started my own chapter for Halos of Hope. It was called Halos of Hope : New England. Halos of Hope was started by Pam Hashke. She won her fight against Breast Cancer and started Halos of Hope. We make and send out caps to cancer centers to hopefully help patients cope with hair loss.

Halos of Hope: NE sends caps to center in all 6 states. Thats lot of caps!

A few months ago I expanded to help more people. But under the Halos of Hope name I couldn’t so I changed my group name to Comfort Caps for New England. I still do my part for HOH and I also help out the homeless and burn victims and Vets going through chemo .

I wish I could do more but for right now  this is all I can do.

B is for…


There are a few B words I could use… But I have babies on the brain. so this B is for Babies.

Being (almost ) 35 I am not 100% in baby mode. I would love to see what my hubby to be and I would create. Girl or boy ( I want a girl) , would our creation be tall like him or short like me? Would they share my love for crocheting, or his love for gaming, maybe both or neither. Would we be proud parents of a gay,lesbian or trans gender child? ( i say hell yeah! 🙂 ) We would support our child no matter what!

Would we have the strength if we had an autistic child or if they had another handicap, disability  ( I am not sure if that is the right would- I don’t want to offend anyone)  No one know unless it happens.

Will we have enough money to send them to college if they don’t get a scholarship? Jon and I both missed having a college experience. We both dropped out of high school. I got my diploma through an online course.  He doesn’t think getting his diploma or GED would change is life. He likes is job.

This is a big one for me… Would our child hate us? After never ending love and support would they say it wasn’t enough?

Being able to hold our baby and look in to their beautiful eyes would be enough. We’d be able to get through anything. Even if they hate us we can say ok but we still love you.

A is for ….. A-Z blog challenge( a day late)

April snuck up on me. I was all set to participate in the A-Z blog challenge but I have no theme. A theme would make this so much easier than just random post about the next letter of the alphabet.

Wait, my blog does have a theme.. ME. It states at the top that this blog goes beyond the hooks, yarn and looms.  Its not an interesting theme if you don’t know me . If you read my post everyday or weekly and I bore you … I apologize 🙂

So here we go.. A is for APRIL. yup April. My favorite month. Why? I was born in April. The 9th to be exact. I came out foot first, then butt. And my mom reminded me almost every year of that. 🙂 She use to say I was testing the air first. If it was too cold I’d probably climb back in 🙂 Cold weather is not cool. << that was lame..lol

I love spring. Flowers start pushing through the dirt. Everything starts over, the grass, the leaves in the trees. And the birds sing their sweet songs.

I love getting my small garden ready. But this month it might be a challenge. Since there is still snow on the ground.( insert curse word here)  The area where my garden is only gets morning direct sun. So the snow isn’t melting as fast as the rest of the yard.

April is when I get married. At the end of the month.. but that is another post. And that same week my first and only so far great niece will be 2 years old.   🙂 April is a good month.

Until next time,
