Not this time Murphy!

I am often a recipient of Murphy's Law - or "anything that can go wrong, will go wrong".  But not this time!  This one time, I got the jump on Old Murphy.  

In typical "Kim" fashion, I procrastinated the whole winter tires thing.  I farted around and delayed dragging them up from the basement and arranging the appointments at the garage. By the time I got around to calling, half the town had already booked and I couldn't get an appointment until yesterday, nov 22.   Now normally we would have had at least one snowfall by then.  I had visions of sliding around the snow covered streets in my summer tires.  But the tires got switched yesterday and look what I woke up to this morning.....

Just a dusting (and it was gone about 2 hours after I woke up) but still, I got one up on Murphy.  I win!

In other news, I got my annual flu shot at work Thursday.  Now, I will spare you my annual rant about my personal views that the flu shot is evil and weakens our natural immune system. But everyone tells me I'm evil if I don't get one and Mom gets sick. So I begrudgingly get one.  (Oops, a mini rant slipped in there).   I had it in my non-hooking arm in case it was sore for a few days.  I'm always thinking, right?  Lol 

Last night I tried to sketch out a new little rug.  I hope to be able to get some hooking done so I can see how it looks.  Tonight is our Santa Claus Parade in town.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate.  It's a shame when all the little ones are freezing on the floats.  

There's a big steaming pot of st-oup on the stove.  St-oup is my version of "not quite a stew, not quite a soup".  The smell is making me hungry.  I need a full stomach to hook all afternoon.   

Happy Saturday!


  1. Yay for you, Kim! You beat Murphy! No snow here in the "sunny South." Have a great day with that hooking!

  2. How can Murphy bother you when he lives with me?? LOL
    I am glad you got your snow tires on just in time.

  3. Happy to hear you beat ole Murphy!
    Happy hooking.
    Hugs :)

  4. It's about time, glad to hear you beat Murphy......I don't get the flu shot, really don't believe in them......,Yum, sounds good to me, Stew or soup., enjoy, Francine.

  5. good for you to get one up I made one of those st-oup today also. I put it in the crock pot for 9 hours on low and the potatoes are not done not happy.
    The flu shot well David gets one because well he has to. Last year he got the flu did it make it less who knows I am on the fence for sure. I understand your reason for sure.

  6. I hope you have a really nice evening. So glad you got those tires on and it waited to snow.
    I think your car looks pretty there dusted with snow. I hope you get your hooking started. I am in procrastinate mode.
    It still seems to big to even dig out the wool for my two rugs. I hope this passes soon.
    Have a lovely Sunday.

  7. Hmmmm st-oup sounds yummy on a freeeeeezing night like this one.

  8. Hi Kim ,glad to hear that you got the tires on before the snow.Snow is so pretty and I like it even more when it appears only to disappear a few hours later.LOL! Hope that you had a wonderful day hooking.Blessings,Jen

  9. Good going for fooling old "Murphy"! I don't get a flu shot and the hospital is always mad at me and my Doctor loves to try and scare me into it. Unfortunately, I may have to have one next year or the hospital could fire me. It's mandatory in many hospitals that employees get that stupid shot. This year they said we have to wear masks if we don't get problem, I work in surgery and wear a mask all day anyway....hmmm..maybe that means I'm beating "Murphy" too!

  10. Please don't send Murphy this way... I've had my share of Murphy and don't ever want to see him again for a long while...

    I'm glad that you got your snow tires on in time. It's something I have to do pronto.

    I get my flu shot because I had cancer and I'm old they say. The soup sound so nice on a cold day. I love any kind of soup. I bet yours taste good.

    I'll be on the look out for this new rug design when you are ready to tease us again.
    Have a nice week Kim and thanks for your comments on my woeful farm life blog. I wonder what happened to petals and wool. lol...
