New Feature - Tea of the Day 4.1.08 (preview 3.31.08)

Being the self-proclaimed tea NUT that I am, I have decided to start a daily feature........Tea of the Day. As a preview, here is today's tea of the day:


I'm not usually one for decaffinated ANYTHING (except for soda.....we love our caffeine-free Pepsi round here!), but this tea is ok.......a nutty taste, like the almond Xmas cookies my gram used to make when I was a kid. YUMMO!

To MOVE or not to MOVE

I got a call last night about a rental in Delaware.......it's close to my work, and my family, and would definately save in all the gas and tolls. I went and looked at it today.....cute! 3 bedrooms (though small), but it has TONS of closets and storage, plus a fenced-yard for Kona ~and~ a 2-car garage. We're going back to look at it together tomorrow, so we'll see what happens.

Today was my first day back to work, and it suprisingly wasn't as bad as it could have been. I've got about 40 emails that I still need to deal with, plus all my new orders, so it's gonna be a fun week (NOT!).

J-O-Y !

My babies !!

Alas, I have no real children, but these are the next thing to them:

My princess.......Kona

My strappin' boys.......Tigger (on the left) and Sugar

Bronchitis, or how to loose your voice in 24 hours !

It *SUCKS* being sick. Although I am over the worst of it, my bronchitis is hanging on for dear life. I finally got my voice (or, a reasonable imitation of one) back after 3+ days, but I still sound like a faux version of Kathleen Turner....LOL!

Still taking meds (5 more days worth, YAY), and I'll be going back to work tomorrow......just can't wait to see how busy my desk is from the 2 1/2 days I've been out. Tons of brides just needin' my help.

Taking the plunge

It was enevitable.....I was destined to BLOG. Why it took me so long, who knows. Life gets in the way of technology, which in turns takes me away from the things that are most important...family, health, friends, and things I love......knitting, cross-stitch, shopping (hey, I'm a girl....you expected something different?) This is why I named my blog "Threads and Knots".....a brief glimpse into the life of ~ME~
