silver strands in the hair & all!
my hair is shorter now but it will grow out wild
& crazy again right?!?!?

but since i don't... i'm a slow knitter ...
i knit a mini scarf one for my mini me.. my first scarf!!

*** snow+me=clutz ***

ok .. i have been so incredibly clumsy lately..
is it all this snow we have had?
is it age?
i wish..
i just am clumsy!!

today while siting and painting away i grabbed a beautiful minty greeny blue ..
squeezed a little & nothing so i squeezed a little harder ..
you know what happened next ..
yep i actually had a quick glimpse into my future myself...
i was COVERED in beautiful greeny blue..
across my shoulder..
half my cheek..
and yes
my mouth was opened & well
beautiful greeny blue doesn't taste very beautiful!!

it was funny
i was totally laughing!

my lip is healing.. i think i will be fine..
hopefully tooth is fine ..
but a fabulous gold tooth would look wonderful!!
thanks for all the warm wishes ..
i sorta lisp now..
i have been watching nancy grace for weeks ..
it is all about caylee anthony ..
20 some odd weeks in counting & the woman says caylee so weird..
she like rolls the l or something i can't figure it out but it
annoys ..fascinates & cracks me up..
maybe i will develop an odd thing like that
a funny way to say my own name ..
just my name ..
nancy only seems to say caylee weird ..
it's different everytime she says it ..

ok enough of my rambling .. :)

up for grabs ..
the snow lush..
*** do i have to come in ? ***

** full grill or goldtooth **

i totally wiped out today..
off the patio on to the shovel..
right between the eyes with the
total spy vs spy
me the one who always spazs
"protect your face"
"arms out in case you slip"
"don't want to lose a tooth "
my arms were out ..
didn't help
it was a shovel handle...
so split my lip
had a nose bleed
loose front tooth

if i loose the tooth what do you think
full grill or
single gold tooth perhaps with a stone in it?

scheduled to sell baseball cards or something ... the building was swarmed with t.v reporters .. i was pulling clothes for a fashion show in the warehouse.. & was totally clueless as to what was up .. a camera man handed me a baseball & said go get his autograph.. & i did !!
i waited outside the BATHROOM for him & asked as he walked out ..!!
oh & yes he gave me it

** the furry red lobster ***

introducing .......

~ latte ~
our extremely long-haired rescue guinea pig
( yes you can adopt guinea pigs )

isn't he adorable?
( just click photo for a closeup )
he is about 3 years old
we have had him since last year christmas time
a good thing about adopting is not just rescuing & that good feeling of saving a sweet thing..
is the bonus of getting an older piggie..
they don't bite or nibble..
they love hugs..

i LOVE guinea pigs ..

well this weekend at target all the costumes were 90% off..
so we picked up this little teeny tiny lobster costume for him...

i know
perfect fit!!
