  3. Hi Kim,
    Thanks for checking out my blog. I am brand new to this...only a week in, but I am enjoying this community so much. I love rug hooking and spinning and I am learning so much from all of you. I am pleased to add you to my blog list. Hope you'll stop by mine again soon.
    Stay warm...We're in for another storm tonight...yippee ;-(

  4. 'Relentless' is the polite term for all the aggrevation. There are many other words that are even more descriptive and some of them are easier to spell because they only have FOUR letters!!!
    Yes, the happy thought is that January is almost over! One month closer to spring! Horay!!!

  5. Michelle, I look forward to how you will use the word of the week in your comment. You are relentlessly clever!

  6. Relentless is a perfect word for the weather we have been having here in West Virginia too! It rained all night last night. Snow today on top of all of that water. Nothing but a big mess!

    Have a Great Day!

  7. Kim - I thought I would challenge myself and try to use all the words of the week that you've thrown out. However, this may become impossible the longer that this goes on so I may just have to see how many past words of the week I can use at one time. :)
    I do enjoy reading your blog - you go girl!

  8. Kim, you relentless at making us laugh, you have shown us that you are relentless at caring for your mother and auntie, and also a relentless rug hooker.

    I've been relentless at changing diappers, bottle feeding and burping my little prince.

    However, I haven't been relentless at blogging and keeping in touch. JB

  9. I am with ya girl I have had it.

  10. Relentless is the perfect word. You hit the nail right on the head. Will the cold and snow ever end? To think I was praying for snow a short while ago. I must have needed my head examined.

  11. Interesting word "relentless". It's used to describe both positive( as in Julia's usage) and not so positive as in "relentless weather, workloads etc.
    None the less the outcome seems to be one of never ending something or other.
    I will be relentless in using the word relentless in my relentless conversations for the rest of the week. Thank-you Kim.

  12. Well, if you just didn't do such a good job at using it. I could see everything you said in my mind.

    I hope tomorrow is a better day!

  14. I love the word relentless. I am certain that in the dictionary under the word relentless is a picture of Maddy. She is relentless when she wants something like a cookie or some attention. Relentless, yes that's Maddy!

    BUT,.....I get it...I do!! I try to find the sunshine and relaxation where I can...will hope that for you too!!
