Blogging for money?

Get paid to blog! I am always looking for ways to be able to buy yarn and I have discovered that companies are willing to pay to advertise on your blog about what they offer.
Smorty blog advertising is a service connecting advertisers with bloggers. Advertisers will pay bloggers to write opinion posts with links back to their site.
Can you imagine getting paid to blog? I can and have been paid.

Oh, I will still be blogging about my knitting and my grand children and other stuff, so keep coming back.

Yesterday's road trip with Debra was so much fun. We did a full 12 hours together! Our first stop was lunch and then we went to Herrschner's. From there we went to The Black Purl in Wausau. We had our knitting along so we sat and knit with Beth, the owner and a couple of other knitter's. And we scored on some hard to find books and magazines. She is have a sale next weekend so be sure and head to Wausau! Then we headed to Waupaca and ate supper in King at the King's Table. And then we headed to The Troll's Cove for open knitting and scored some more yarn. There were 8 of us knitting and having fun. It was a fun filled fibery day. Thanks Debra!

Feeling Good!

Ahh.... today I feel very good. It has been a few weeks of battling bronchitis and the flu. I only had a light case of the flu because I take my GBG 10-in-1 Liquid Vitamins daily. My hair and nails are growing gangbusters! AND I noticed I am not having any more hot flashes! That is worth every penny that GBG 10-n-1 costs! Yippee.

I finished my jaywalker socks, finally. That second sock syndrome really kicked in on that pair. I am about halfway done with my vest, now that warmer weather is getting nearer. :-)
Tomorrow I am going on a road trip to yarn shops with my dear friend, Debra. We will travel and giggle and fondle yarn! Sounds like fun, huh? :-)

Bloggerwave. Make some extra money doing what you normally do on your blog! Blog! Write a few sentences about things that companies would like you to write about. It is open to all countries, but only theses languages: Spanish, German, English, Italian, Swedish, Norwegian, French. You do need to put some code on your blog and it will help you get jobs. I am looking forward to earning money to buy more yarn!

Signs of Spring?

Well we had a record snowfall this winter and there is still plenty of piles of the stuff around. No signs of spring flowers but many spring birds. I heard my first robin this morning, saw some sandhill cranes on Sunday and saw some geese flying north. The birds are chirping more and it is music to my ears.

I can not wait to get rid of winter coat!

In Memory of Faye

Today a wonderful woman of God went to the arms of her Heavenly Father. My mother-in-law, Faye, passed away peacefully. She will be missed but we all know that she is happy and pain free now. Jesus was her Lord and Savior and He welcomed her home. Dad will miss his bride of 65 years, but now he won't have to hear her cry in pain. Oh how he loved her. She would have turned 89 next month.
Faye's pecan pie was the best I ever ate. She loved playing Dominos and telling a good clean limerick. She was like a mom to me and loved me.
I'll miss you momma Faye.
