It's a welcome home of sorts...


Tonight I got to go back to my Wednesday Night Knitting Club after a many month hiatus due to work situations and life in general getting in the way.  It's so nice to be greeted by people with hugs and great big grins and hearing "HEY!"  and know that it's a good kinda hey being directed your way.  It's a hey that translates into, "God, it's been a damn long time since I've seen you" kinda hey.  


There was much munching on goodies (ala ritz chips, soft bake keebler cookies, and animal crackers) and showing off of projects.  One of the gals is now working on double pointed needles making mittens!  (for you non-knitters, double pointed needles to us newbies is like the first small mount everest to climb)  She is making these neon colored mittens and they so fit her and her personality.  Our teacher is the same old vivacious creature that she always is.  She even had time to start me off on a project (knitting stuffed cupcakes...they're so cute!  Don't judge me.).  We gossiped, we caught up, we smiled,  we sniffled, we drank pepsi and tea, and we talked.  

It was....great.

Welcome to My World!

This is probably one of my most favorite pictures of my gang (minus the step-d).  Hi, my name is Heather and I blog.  I've had this blog sitting around yet unused for some time.  I've decided to give it a whirl due to much more time spent on google reader due to some really great blogs I've been introduced to (ie. Nester, The Macs, The Vintage Chica, and The Thrifty Decor Chick just to name a few).  So, I thought I'd make it over to this part of the world and introduce myself.  I'm a mother to 4:  My step-daughter, T, 18; our son, A, 10; our daughter, S, 5; and our youngest bambino, J, 18 months.  I live to be a mom.  I love being a mom.  It's the best and toughest job you'll ever love.  I also enjoy reading/writing.  I love to decorate my little abode with what catches my eye and hope to be doing more of that now that little J is growing more and more every day.  I also enjoy collecting recipes.  Whether I do anything with said recipes or not is a toss up, but I love looking at cookbooks and finding something that will work for my brood.  

So this is me saying Hi.  Hello and welcome to my world.  I hope you like it here...I do.
