I love mail

I am so excited! I won an auction on Ebay for mystery boxes of yarn...this combines three of my favorite things: surprises, mail, and yarn!
as an update to my last post, I want everyone to know that the urgent coffee matter has been solved, and a new coffee maker has been installed.

ok, this is feeling kind of weird, because I can't talk about projects yet, due to lack of I will tell you about something that i'm working on...
I am making hats, mittens, and sweaters for a charity that sends them to orphanages in Mongolia. I think that if anyone deserves pretty sweaters, it's Mongolian orphans. You know?

My mom has been donating yarn that she's got laying around, and my local yarn shop has had an awesome sale going on, so i've got enough yarn here to clothe a multitude of Mongolians.

My Aunt Beckie sent us some homemade dog biscuits the other day. (did i tell you i love mail?) Remy is the happiest dog on Earth right now. On top of the special dog treats, Brandon just got our grill working, and he has been spending most of his time on our porch ( in the rain and snow) grilling. He has begun to go insane. He made shish-kebobs for Remy this evening...yes...he grilled for the dog....enough said.

I'm really hoping that this blog gets a little bit more exciting fairly soon.
sorry about that chaps...
I can't help but notice the vast amounts of people who are not reading it.
Ahhh...a girl can dream...

Super Intro

Hello again, my dainties....
my coffee maker is broken.
A small piece of my heart broke along with it...

On a different subject....I think that it should be totally obvious by now that everyone in the universe should read Bust Magazine. However, it seems that some of us are not pulling our weight. I think it may be time to just go ahead and get with the program.

Another thing... it is absolutely necessary to listen to National Public Radio.

Believe me on this...NPR is my crack. If I am away from my radio for too long, I start twitching...

I also believe in obtaining huge and ghastly amounts of yarn. You may be wondering why you would need so much yarn? well, personally I think that questions like those are totally un-patriotic. amass piles of yarn to keep America safe. And since you have all that yarn laying around, you could just make some really cute mittens, or a sweater or something.

Please don't ever make anything with fun fur.

Or that creepy eyelash stuff.

I think that I should tell you a little about me, because I want you (everyone in cyberspace) to be my new friends. My name (alias) is Heather Terrill...I was originally Heather Griffis, but then I got married. My husband is Brandon Terrill...maybe you know him? anyway...we have a small, but very loud child named Alexander Terrill...he has managed to live to the ripe old age of 6. That is amazing, really, considering....

We have a dog...who is the light of my darkened days...his name is Remy....and he is a schnoodle (that's right, schnauser and poodle).

We live in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. (snobalicious)

We listen to the radio. (we don't do tv) (ick)

Brandon works for General Motors. (oppressors)

I currently am employed only in the fantastic profession of creating...( no degree)

Our family is dedicated to non-consumerism.

Our dream is to one day own a self sustaining llama ranch in Peru. I'm not joking.....

So, my darlings, this is, in fact, the very first post from the esteemed Superhooker. My hooking exploits mostly take place at my Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. (it is a suburb of Detroit for all of you who are not down with the mitten.) I am working on becoming the best crocheter in the galaxy. So far I am at the stage where I make lots of mittens and hats. I just got a digital camera, so as soon as we here at the lair can figure it out, there will be some nice pictures of my projects and such. Of course, this blog thingie won't be all about hookin...I also sew a lot, and I have plans for book reviews. So, ummm...stay tuned in for more hookin action...same hookin time, same hookin channel...
