Fall is the Season 2021

Hello to all! It is the most beautiful time of the year and that is Fall, where leaves change colors, spice aroma and pumpkins are everywhere! We are in Mid September already, gosh can you believe it? If it hasn’t already, weather is cooling down and exchanging season boxes, Adios to Summer and Hello Fall!!

I know I said last blog post I have some pumpkins ready for ya, but life happens and well you know the rest, lol. Recovering from my hand surgery has been rough, not healing as well as my right hand did. Needless to say, crocheting is not exactly in full force yet. I don’t know if you know about me and battling Depression and Anxiety Disorders, yes that has been another reason why I haven’t been very productive. I have been working hard to get better but it is easier said than done. It is a one day at a time process. Some days are good and others are just not great at all, if you are one that struggles with mental health and can relate wonderful. I love to hear how you manage? Shoot me a email and in subject put [Fall Blog Health.

This subject is another blog on its own, so thought I share why I struggle in the life of crocheting and running a business. I do have Pumpkin Cozy’s for your tumbler cups, I will post one so you can see how cute it is. Cozy doesn’t have to be pumpkin colors, got a favorite football team, that is great too! Sport pumpkin cozies are the best! If your a football lover than you know it is Football Season in full effect!

Life for me has been ok journey, working on self care and that is what is most important at the moment. Now that I got grown kids, hubby that works hard to provide and allow myself to take care of myself is a keeper don’t you think? We celebrated our 28th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday, but because I was battling migraines all week, we didn’t do much. At first I was expecting the unexpected like flowers, or a simple Happy Anniversary Honey as a surprise and a change. That didn’t happen, I could of made a big deal of it but I just said it is not worth the fuss, he acknowledged the day and I am ok with that. Also, were penny pinching it right now too, so I am grateful for him and I managing our marriage this long, lol.

I am happy today because I got up early, had a cup of homemade Joe, with Raspberry flavor, played my games on my phone and actually made it out of the house for my dental appointment. Normally, I cancel, or just don’t feel like doing nothing but staying home. I don’t know about you, but I am one who has to have money in her wallet if I am going out to do something like appointment. I know your probably saying, no you don’t but I like to go to Starbucks, the yarn stores, anywhere that I can buy something within reason of course. Today I did great, had my cup of Joe in my stainless steel tumbler cup, I believe its 30oz not sure lol. I always have water in my car, and yes I had my crochet hooks in my bag this time with yarn! I am always forgetting something, when I do go out on an outing. I make a day of it, when I do go out in case your wondering.

Fall Season is here in Los Angeles, CA, it’s still warm and sunny but not as hot thankfully. In the evenings it’s cool and I love it!! Oh in case your wondering on my Test project, was due Sat well I struggled big time with this pattern and needless to say I didn’t finish. I haven’t given up it is an WIP and hope to have it done by October God Willing! I did attend Church on line yesterday, and the sermon was on no matter your battle or struggle, God loves you no matter what! It basically was telling me that give it a try and see how it goes, meaning give everyday a try, do what I can and try again the next day until I am comfortable.

So, I will be giving myself a try daily and making the extra effort to do more, crochet more as tolerated and get outside daily. It is a start right? I think I ranted enough on this Blog post on who I am really and what I deal with on a daily basis of this crochet journey of mine. I do ask that what I share is personal and if it too much for you to handle unfollow or just don’t say nothing. Those who are supportive, thank you, just keep me in your prayers and need to get in contact with me send a email. With that I end this Blog and say Happy Fall Everyone!!

Pumpkin Spice Season 2021

Well Hello to my followers and friends!!


I have been a way and my apologies for that. To make a long story short, I had Carpal Tunnel Release surgery on both my hands. In recovery still and doing well, just a day by day process, especially on my left hand which was the hand that needed the surgery most. I am in week 3-4 and let’s just say, healing taking longer than expected, incision are is sensitive to touch still and wrist still hurt. Not a good combo to say the least, so I use my hand as tolerated as instructed by doctor. Those that don’t know me, well I don’t always follow instructions and try to do more or less than I am instructed, hahahaha. Maybe, I should listen and follow the instructions doctor gave me so I won’t be in pain and healing can go must faster, hahaha yea ok How about No!

It boring not being able to crochet and it is Pumpkin Spice Season, and this time of the year is my favorite!! Pumpkin Spice and everything nice is my season, Fall cold brisk air and leaves changing color. In California, well it is not exactly Fall weather thanks to mother nature Bipolar moods. I do plan to break out my fall decor, and crochet as tolerated, even break out my Addi Machines and go pumpkin spice happy!! Do you like The fall season? What is your favorite part of the Fall?

This is the latest on what is going on in my crochet journey thus far. I do have a project I am working on, it’s a secret and it’s from an awesome designer whom I follow and love. The only thing is her designs have been my biggest challenge and for some reason I was scared to try her patterns. Well She did a testing call, I applied and I was choosen!! Exciting yes, time to tackle that fear and get this pattern done!!
