Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Husbeast was really sick on Turkey day. Poor guy laid in bed with his throat all sore and scratchy. He didn't make it to dinner but he got a good pile of leftovers. He swears that Gram's fried cabbage cured him. I'll get the recipe just in case any of you get sick. Gram's cabbage can cure unless gas is your problem then you need to avoid the cabbage.
Luckily, I made it through the holiday but was struck down Sunday afternoon. Whatever this is walloped me good. This week, all I've wanted to do is lay down and take a nap. Don't they look comfy? Don't you just want to push them on the floor and wake them up? Yesterday, I took the last 2 hours of work off and sat in the comfy chair with my knitting in my lap. There I was sitting in my chair with a snoring doggie at my side.
All of a sudden
MOMMA ARE YOU ASLEEP? Cuz if you're asleep I'm a big girl and I can watch my little sister and take care of you too, I know you're sick, how're you feeling, do you want to sleep, were you going to fall asleep, can I have a snack, I can get my own snack, are you going to fall asleep, I'm good at watching Baby Boogie.....
You may notice there were no periods in that paragraph. That happens to be the way GirlBeast talks. Those of you that have met her, you know this is true. The fact was, I had started to doze off. The two girls had taken a brief pause in their constant chatter and it was just long enough to let me start to doze.
You don't have to worry, they didn't stop talking/chattering/fighting for the rest of the day and evening. The dog even got in on the act. No one can be left out. There was no chance of me sleeping anymore. Now do you want to go shove them off the couch?
Somehow I still managed to finish my sweater project.
Sorry, that is all you can see at the moment. I need to take pictures now. I don't know how I'm going to model this thing with my red nose and my generally haggard appearance. Husbeast says I look how he felt last week. Be afraid. Be very afraid of the pictures to come.
Here's 2 of the holiday projects I'm working on now: BoogieBabe's sweater. The sleeves have been re-done and are correct this time and I've got about 3-4 inches of the body done.
This is a very bad picture of Dad's sock. I did not mean for it to have a phallic appearance (or is that just my sleepy sick eyes making that up). It was the last picture I took and I couldn't do any better at that point.
Still, as yucky as I've felt, I'm pretty happy with the progress. Not that any holiday gifts are complete. I'll either get them done or not. I'm not sweating it, but I'll still try.
