HP Quote

"You will have your reward, Wormtail. I will allow you to perform an essential task for me, one that many of my followers would give their right hands to perform..." Who is speaking?

Lord Voldemort is speaking to Peter Pettigrew aka Wormtail or Scabbers.

I'm doing my homework and rewatching the movies!

I"m so Proud!

Hogwarts Swap Questions Answered

Please make sure that this questionnaire is posted on your blogs by Tuesday, May 1st!! House points will be awarded.

1. What Hogwarts house have you been sorted into?I am a Gryffindor!

2. List your three favorite double-point needle brands, including size and length.Does the generic answer of "It depends" work? If I am using fine or fingering weight yarn, I like the points on Knitpicks, but I haven't tried any other pointy needles. These come in shorter lengths than the Clover Bamboo needles...which are great for 6 ply socks. As for length...as I live in Montana, I have to be happy I can FIND small double points. I am not allowed the luxery of being picky.

3. Would you like to try a new brand needle? If so, which brand? Size? Length?I would love to try a new brand...but I would let my partner be the one to determine what was available in their area.

5. If you are a RAVENCLAW, do you prefer the colors in the film or the book? Do you have a strong preference?Hey, I was sorted into this house once...but there were more Gryffindor sortings so I went there.

6. If your pal decides to send candies or chocolates are there any that you don't like?
I like dark chocolate, cinnamon candies (bears, hot tamales, etc.), and caramel...yummm!
7. What are your favorite scents?Vanilla, Lemon, Cinnamon...I have lost almost all of my sense of smell (due to allergies/virus the doctors can't tell why) but I can enjoy these!

8. Do you have any allergies? Thankfully, not to yarn! Unless they start making it out of sage brush or something like that. I guess they have bamboo, so it could be next.

This was fun...I can hardly wait!

Family Snap at the Prom


Garrett, Delaney, and Rick...Awwwweeee! Hmmm...perhaps I should have had someone else take the photo?

Prom 2007






Yes, it is that time of year again here in Chester. This was the first year for both of the kids going to this event...so be ready for many pictures! It was tough having Garrett and Delaney in two different places before and after Prom, but hey, we all survived. Delaney went with Levi, while Garrett had the honor of going with Jackie. They aren't home at the time I am posting this, but they should be by noon. (At least that was the time-line I gave them!)

For my Prefect!

Who's talking in this conversation...."There is nothing worse than death, Dumbledore!" "You are quite wrong. Indeed, your failure to understand that there are things much worse than death has always been your greatest weakness."

Answer: Voldermort and Dumbledore

I had mailed this to Jennean before we had any Prefects in our house, but now that we have some of you wonderful people, I can post my answers here!

OH...come join the fun everyone!

Remember and learn


There are so many lessons to learn from the terrible events in Virginia, not all of these lessons are bad. Honestly, bad just isn't terrible enough of a word, but there was also the lessons of hope for humanity. Be kind to your fellow "man" (which mean all of us...not gender) for that is what will count in the end.
