Lunch and a Movie

January 20, 2017

Instead of getting together to knit and bitch, we decided on lunch and a movie.

Okay.  This was started last Friday, but life got in the way again.

The week before, I mentioned how much I had enjoyed ‘La La Land’.  We met for lunch at a nearby chain restaurant.  It was okay.  The other two seemed to be very happy with theirs.  I guess that I expected something more interesting.

Not Much

January 10, 2017

With the snow and below freezing temperatures, I haven’t been outside since Friday.  Yeah.  I know. I’m a big chicken.  I took some bird pictures.

We also got the cats drunk.  We have to get some more kitty nip soon.

I sewed some.

No walks for Don.  All he got was a short trip out to the mailbox.  He had to ‘make do’ with the front yard.  He is not happy at all.  We tried to explain that we were old farts and could easily fall, but I don’t think he was listening.

I finished some blocks.  There are still many more waiting.

Sweet Baby Rue had the best solution.

Home All Day

January 7, 2017

I was hoping to get some sewing accomplished today,  but I did  cut a few squares.  Baking a pie was more to my liking.  I still have apples and maybe enough for two more.  Sweetums was so happy!  I  also made biscuits to go with supper.  Sweetums was in heaven!  As far as he’s concerned, there is nothing better than biscuits and pie.

Thrusday Afternoon with Friends

January 6, 2017

Some knitting is accomplished.  But mostly we bitch about everything under the sun.  We had a great time.  It’s so nice to have friends of like minds.

A Crab for Jenn

January 5, 2017

When I saw the crab pattern in Knitty, I had to make it.  I used a DK weight rather than worsted and smaller needles.  I recently found some blue and green fingering, so I could make a proper blue crab.

Don was so happy when Ruth decided he was her dog.

I’m Not Going to Say It

January 2, 2017

I thought that I would try to get back to normal.  Well.  What’s normal for me anyway. Currently, I am about two months behind on my quilting blocks and it doesn’t really bother me.  Really?  Really!  Instead, I have six pairs of pants with decent sized pockets.  I also decorated some tea towels with snowmen for my daughter.  I forgot to take pictures.  On the knitting front, I made a great pair of mittens.

This took far too long.  Gotta go.
