Where do I start?

Where do I start to catch you all up on what’s been going on in the past two months?  Christmas, New Year’s and now even Valentine’s Day has flown by us.  It’s been QUITE a whirlwind.

First of all, WE DID IT!

we did it

Those are the keys to our new home!!!  Tano got a house for his bday, Jan. 7th.  I arranged it so that the closing fell on that same day.  It was great!  I’ll never be able to top that gift EVER again.  Unless I hit the lotto.

What other major event?  We had to give back our poor Luna.  🙁  It’s heart breaking but it was because our home insurance policy wouldn’t let us have a pitbull.  And with as much trouble as we went through to get the house, we couldn’t risk losing it or the great policy we got, so unfortunately we brought Luna back this past Saturday.  I don’t like talking about it because even though she drove me crazy most times, it was extremely painful bringing her back to be locked up after she was running around happily in the snow in our new huuuuge backyard….and….ugh.  🙁

But, we did decide to get a new dog.  We went yesterday, yes we didn’t waste any time, why do you ask?  We FINALLY found a Lab!  We’d been wanting a lab mix from when we first started looking for a dog last year but none of the shelters we went to had any.  We took a (long) trip out to North Shore Animal League in Long Island yesterday and that’s where we found Chloe!!  :o)  She’s about 10 weeks old.  A BIG 10-weeks-old let me tell ya!  But the sweetest thing.  She’s very shy and was hiding under the table most of yesterday evening.  We had to pull her out to feed her and to show her to her doggy bed.  She loved the bed as you can see.  :o)


I hope that this is the end of it with the dog issues.  We hope to have Chloe for as long as she’ll have us and we hope that she’s happy with us.   🙂

Knitting!  There’s been plenty of knitting.  I released a couple of patterns over the past couple of months that hopefully a couple of you caught on Rav.  I’ll post official releases here on the blog later this week.

If you’re still here, Dear Reader(s), thanks for your loyalty and hang around.  The fun is about to start – again!

PS:  THERE’S SOAP NOW TOO!!  LOL  And, there will be soap for sale all the time again.  The shop will be reopened!  I plan to set up an etsy shop so it’s easy for everyone to order.

Have a great week, peeps!

  1. Congratulations!!! Tano looks SO stoked in that picture, it cracks me up! I’m so sorry about poor Luna, it’s so sad that some breeds just get lumped into one big DANGER category when it has more to do with their owners than anything (any dog breed can be dangerous, or not, given circumstances and upbringing, so the blanket bad rap is a shame) but hopefully she’ll find a new home quickly. Are you able to contact them or will they contact you when she gets placed? Chloe looks like such a sweetheart, I hope you’re all very very happy in your new place together. 😀

  5. Hello there – found you on Ravelry because you and I have alot of patterns in common. I was surprised to see that you are in SI (Im on LI) and that you have a Tano in your life (those are the last four letters of my maiden name and frequently used as a nickname for things). Enjoy your blog, I’ll be back (soap looks awesome)
