slept late :( at least it's the weekend. my sleep has been wonky too. i woke up at 2:30am and took about an hour to fall back asleep.

today i need to get everything ready for us to drive to Houston for my MIL's funeral. I also need to go over to my parent's. i haven't felt up to seeing anyone really but i should go over there and visit.

other than that i need to clean the house some and finish trimming the plants in the front yard. i usually water every other day if it doesn't rain so i think if i water before we leave and when we get home they'll be ok.

i get a lot of anxiety when i travel. it's why i don't really go on vacation. it's hard for me to leave the dogs. we're taking one with us and 2 of them will stay with my parents.

Bakana is bathed, I'm showered, & the last of my laundry is in. Some had to wait because of Thursday night & Friday morning. MISSED Thursday night due to wonky sleep, but made Friday morning & got that day's laundry in.
Knitting & crochet-wise I finished the hat to go wi the gloves which were irritating to make, so now on the scarf, which means I have 3 scarves on the go now.
Forgot to mention being a bit early for coffee on Tuesday so I also took glass out that day.
Every package I've ordered has arrived.

And the last few days have been 20C & above here, so pretty warm pretty quickly. I've enjoyed some of it, but by heavens I get sweaty quickly & that isn't fun

Cheers peeps xxx
BC I hope this new lot live & thrive xxx
Artie enjoy the baking!!!
Caysie oo boy!!! I hope you get that check-up done soon

Game deleted, along with everything to do wi it.
Got loot so transferred money to Paypal to fix the balance.
Went to coffee morning in the morning, it was good & saw some pals & got some yarn. Got a few quick messages from Co-op, put them away, went to Lidl town. Got the knitting needles & crochet hooks I needed in the yarn shop, then found a smart jacket AND some plates!!! Been scouring for both for ages, so good I found them now.
The cafe ran out of milkshakes, so I effectively told them how to make an affogato, then telling them to Google it.
I found yarn colours I don't yet have & a few other bits.
Lidl ran out of mini pizzas, but I got the other stuff I needed there. Then I hit the town's Co-op for a sandwich to have instead of a mini pizza. Bus home only minutes later.
Aside from the quick stuff I get in the local Co-op next week I have what I need, & not much else to spend loot on so will leave it for now.
Ate lightly at home, hence wanting the mini pizza & getting the sandwich.
There was evening music, coffee or juice, & cakes & biccies (also grapes & yep I had some too) on later, so I went to that. The music was quite good & some of the tunes were fun!!!
Today there's nothing on so Bakana's having a bath, then I'll do laundry & have a shower.

The wings look gorgeous!!!
And wow!!! You got the entire Paradise Estate building!!! Furniture won't be hard to find, & will be easy to post, but you got really lucky finding the whole building!!! I display mine in two halves, with the patio, living room, & kitchen on one shelf, & the rest on another. I saw another person display theirs like that & thought it was a great idea.
Congrats on getting the stuff!!!

Oh Artie, teething is not fun!!! Not for the baby, nor the parents xxx
Horizon I've neglected my collection logs of late. Need to catch up. The piccies are there but the log of my collection is a thing I have to do. Congrats on working on yours!!!
BC well done on the cleaning!!!
Beth grrr at your work interrupting your family time xxx

I did the dishes AND gave the whole sink area (draining rack, sink, & surrounding surface) a good scrub down!!! It's almost like I have a new draining area!!! It's really that clean now!!!
Made two lots of dough: one for bread, one for pizza. Made the bread first, so it could rise while I worked on the pizza base & sauce, & sorted the veggies. Then the pizza dough rose while I baked the bread, then I portioned out the pizza dough, heated the veggies, rolled out the first bit, cooked it up, pulled out my pre-grated cheeses, & assembled the pizza. Then I ate it!!! I pulled too many veggies to fit in the tray for heating, so half of them went in a container for the fridge.
After all that & the associated dishes from that were draining, it was time to head out for coffee, cakes, & seeing a few pals. One pal, who's getting on & it's becoming obvious (limping a little, sometimes you don't quite understand him, etc) told me he & his wife enjoyed the cake I gave them last time I saw him. She's still not well enough to come out. I hope she recovers soon; I miss her.
Then I got some more knitting done, & had a long crashout.
Then came today. So beautiful, 21C & the sun is out. Sorted the bed to summer fashion (when I sleep on top of the duvet but under some light blankets). Put the plastic & metal recycling out. Waited for a parcel, then checked its tracking. It's in England, so it'll take a couple more days to reach me. After binfolks came, took Bakana for a walk. Went along the long coastal path & it was beautiful. So many flowers, & I saw a bee or two, a load of Cabbage Whites, & two Red Admirals, among the wildlife!!! Got quite sweaty & though I took a water bottle, finished it before the walk was done. Got home & changed my tshirt for a nightshirt. I have nothing on Wednesday so I cleared the machine as Bakana is due a bath, & she'll get one then. Only a little knitting.
I've been playing a dragon game but I think I'll have to give it up soon, which is a shame but cost of living is hitting. In fact, I might have to delete it now. I can no longer afford to play it, & like most of that type of game, it's very pay to win...

I always seem to end up tired, hungry, & sore after a walk!!!
Also I'm waiting for a parcel, & because I'm up here, it's delayed.
Oh & the bank refused a Paypal payment, which means I can't use Paypal until I refill the balance manually

First summery day of the year, so I filled a water bottle, grabbed Bakana & my phone, & took a walk along the coast paths. I even saw red admirals!!! They're beautiful butterflies

Oh wow she is gorgeous!!! I love her so much!!!
Yep there's a good few patterns for G4 Ponies, & PKW has one for Takaras, but I never found any for G1s, hence making my own. Mine took a week of painstaking trial, error, frogging & redoing, measuring, & other bits to get done, & the second one took the same time, but only because 1/ she needed wings which I had to add, & 2/ her hair was tinsel yarn, very sparkly but working with it was a pain.
But I'm happy with the results.
And as a fellow crocheter, I congratulate you on your hard work, which is what making this looks like it was, even with the pattern to guide you!!!
One other thing: your eyes look amazing!!! Did you embroider them??? They look embroidered, & that in itself is a time-consuming process. I'm not a safety eye fan, but boy does the embroidery take time to do!!! It does result in a safer, more secure eye though. Same with symbols where needed.
