Where did the week go?

Not sure where the days went but it seems I haven't posted since Tuesday.  Oops!  Although I didn't get the full storm day I was looking forward to on Wednesday, I did get half a day.  Our office, and most others closed at noon.  It was a lazy snow day.  

Millie and I spent most of the afternoon like this


Don't you love her eyes?  Since I'm not home as much lately, when I am here she barely takes her eyes off me.  If I move, she is on high alert in case I leave again.  Such a loyal little buddy. 

I did drag myself off the sofa long enough to make this batch of "boozy brownies" (enhanced with some Baileys) 


Before you ask for the recipe, I don't have one.  This was a gift with all the dry ingredients layered in a pretty jar.  All you had to do was add the eggs, butter and liquor.   (I just realized I should have taken a picture of the jar before I dumped it in the bowl.  Bad blogger!)  

I ended my work week with a laugh.  A friend invited some girls over for a Pajama party.  There was wine, lots of candy, fancy center pieces (lol)


And so many laughs.  You know the kind where you're doubled over with tears streaming down your face, generally over some really inappropriate story.  Gotta love a good old fashioned girls night.   

Now I'm ready to fix a hooking issue that has bothered me.  I wanted a warm rust, or deep gold for the leaf and a swirl in my pillow.  I didn't have that in my stash so I thought I could get away with some orange 


It is just too bright for this piece.  I found a more muted piece of wool at Deanne's studio this week so tonight I'm ripping and re-hooking.  I hate doing that but since this piece is already sold, I want it to be perfect.  If I was keeping it myself I'd probably leave it as is.  I'll show you the after pic when it's finished.  

Ok, you're all caught up on my news now.  I will be around to visit you later.

  5. Hi Kim, I am trying to catch up with my friends tonight along with reading some new blogs in the grow your blog party. We didn't get the snow, but we have had the cold with the winds. If we had snow on top of it, it is hard telling how deep it would be. We were warmer early in the day. I am glad you had a good night out with the girls it is necessary. Have a wonderful rest of the weekend. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  18. The Brownies sounds yummy and a pyjama girl party sound like a great way to end a rough week. I like how you live it up.
    Poor little Millie, she looks like she's worried. I hope Spring comes in early this year... wishful thinking.

    Congratulations on another sale. You are really a hooker extraordinaire.
    Hugs,
