Simple Sunday

Happy Sunday, I hope you are all doing well and accomplishing the things you set out to do! I am trying today to get things done, cleaning my room, went to proactice highway driving, and according to my dad, I was excellent! :D my G test is in March, so I still have plenty of time to practice driving along and merging onto the highway..

Knitting To Do's!

I took a photo of my yarn stash this morning and decided to share it with you. I hadn't realised just how much yarn I've accumulated over the years. I see a color i like buy it, and then I guess don't use it. But I will be knitting more I assure you :)

I will be knitting "tube socks" with the colorful yarn soon to start practicing knitting socks :) It's pretty !

Some knitting books I own and love :)

A night for relaxation


Hello Bloggers ♥

Tonight was a wonderful relaxation night. One of those cozy nights after work when you have no agendas, nothing you HAVE to do....
so here's how this fabulous night went down...

First, when I got home I logged onto my computer and signed onto my blog, looked around and also looked through my favorite blogs to see updates. I thought about how to make mine better. I can spend a lot of time doing this :)

Then decided, I need some cozy at home clothes and changed into my pjs and very comfortable slippers :)

Then I picked up "The Friday Night Knitting Club" and read about 10 pages until I decided to take a 30 minute nap so I wouldn't feel so sleepy. I woke up at 5:45 this morning!! :/

Then, since I live in Ontario and we have the three part drivers license [G1,G2, AND G] I booked my road test for my G [final step to getting my full license] ! so happy about that :) except it took forever to load, not just 60 seconds... gr.

Well it was a good one, tomorrow night I'll be at a work workshop and the night after, a meeting so they won't be so lovely. That's probably why I am appreciating this night so much :P

Goodnight! have a great day tomorrow :)

Done knitting the scarf :)

Hey friends :)

I am done knitting the scarf now. I just have to sew the hand pockets up at the ends of the scarf, and I'll post a picture of that tomorrow and how I made the whole scarf. It is a gift for my sister she has really wanted me to knit her one :)

yay it's done :D

As for the break up, I am doing better. I am still having doubts creep in, but thanks to my wonderful support team; my family and friends I am making progress in believing I made the right decision. Thank you all so much! :)
And thanks to you guys for commenting your support, it's helped too :) thanks

I am almost done reading "The Friday Night Knitting Club", so today at Coles I bought "Knit two", it's the sequel :) I cannot wait to finish the first one and move on to the second one, it looks great!

I can't believe how fast this weekend has gone, it slipped through my fingers. I am back at work tomorrow bright and early with the youngsters. I work in a daycare in the toddler room and open up the center at 6:45 ! early eh?

Sweet dreams,
Lisa xo

Hey friends!

So tonight I was reading part two of the new book, called "It's called a breakup because it's broken" by Greg Behrendt & Amiira Ruotola-Behrendt. This second part is called break- over! apparently it's the moving on part of the book. I am glad I am at this point but still leaving the poor me and poor him and aw the relationship ended stage.
I was forced to buy it by my mom, I think she was sick of listening to my moaning lol. The book is actually quite funny and sooo true!

It has been helping a lot with my recent break up with my 7 month boyfriend.. tear. I just cheated and looked at his facebook, yes still facebook buddies,

bad idea? yes.
I think he's having a party soon, whoopdy-do, what am i doing, nothing? well I was thinking of going clubbing before, so maybe that this weekend just to get out as a single girl again.

SO, I read in this part that moving your room furniture and getting rid of stuff that reminds you of the person is a good step. So tonight I moved my desk on a cool angle towards on of the corners of my room :) it looks cool and it actually makes this area of my room look very different. Also the chair he used to sit in when we were talking and I was lying on my bed moved to another spot so it doesn't remind me of the past. U revamped my room! now I just have to totally clean my room there is mess everywhere. So no knitting for tonight unfortunately :(

Thanks for reading!!

Lisa xoI'll be okay... :)

knitty and nice

Hello !

So tonight I will be knitting again :) and watching modern family. I LOVE that show! it is the perfect sitcom and always funny, the writer's are geniuses :)

Today was easier, and I even got a text from him saying I will always have a place in his heart and he will always care for me, that was nice. He also said he really wanted to catch up in the near future. I was so happy to get his text especially after he said we needed a 2 month no text time lol and I was the one who broke up with him? confusing. Anyways it made me happy at the time.

keep on creating! no one can take this away from you :):)

It's hard to say goodbye...

Hey friends,

Today was a bit better with the whole break up. I went to work and thought of him a bit with the kids[work at a daycare], then at lunch thought of calling him, then after work thought about him again. Why is it that I am thinking about him more now than I did when we were together? It's a frustrating thing, this was one of the many reasons why we broke up, was that I didn't think about him much during the day and didn't feel like calling, seeing him etc... which made me feel like I wasn't giving the relationship my full attention. So that brings me to today, feeling like I missed him & wanted to talk to him..... sooo annoying these emotions. I never can trust them. I will have to remain strong and hope that they will pass and we can remain good friends. Because something did not work.

Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone!

It is now 2011! I hope you all had an enjoyable
New Years Eve with friends and family.
I was getting over a break up that night which kinda sucked. I stayed home with the parents and drank "girls night out wine" which was so good. I had broken up with my boyfriend the night before because there was just something not working between us [in my opinion]. But to make matters worse, he didn't feel the same way, he was happy in the relationship. Ultimately, I had to do what was best for me. But it has still been a struggle thinking of all the good times and memories but a lot of them were more towards the
beginning of the relationship. The end was a struggle of figuring out my emotions. I lost that loving feeling by the end. *tear* but I think we'll be fine, he seems to be doing well and from the looks of his face book page, he is coping well. I am also glad he wanted to stay facebook friends, because I would never see him otherwise since we live farther away and no mutual friends. I haven't been knitting much because of it, I haven't had much motivation until today to actually get off my butt and get doing and accomplishing things.

Well I think today I'll tackle and finish the scarf and then set forth on a new project. I am still working on the book " The Friday Night Knitting Club" it is still excellent and very long, but I think I might be delaying it a bit because I like it so much ;)

HAPPY NEW YEAR! and don't let fear hold you back :)
