I Ate too much Shrimp

February 26, 2010

And now, my stomach is a bit upset.  But, it was really good. And I haven’t had any in such a long time.  I have had a five-pound box sitting in my freezer for too long.  There is still s lot of it left.  I could make shrimp salad and still have enough left to make a pasta dish.   We are going to be so sick of shrimp.

 I have lost track of the age of some of my frozen food so we are going to everything in the freezer before buying any more.  And that’s all there is to it. 

Last year was so disorganized.  This year, all I seem to want to do is get things finished.  I think that clearing out the freezer is part of that.

Speaking of finishing, I’ve only got a few more inches on my Stars sweater.  I have got to get that sucker finished, but it makes me crazy.  And I just can’t work on it constantly.  So, I’ve been working a little on my Clown socks in between.

New Hat

July 4, 2008

We went tonight instead of tomorrow so I wore my flag shirt anyway.  I also wore my new red capris which are a size smaller, thank you very much.  I almost bought my jeans shorts a size smaller, but I do a lot of walking around in them and they need to be washed a few times.  I can still take them in if necessary.  But not until I finish my quilt.  Unless I really start hating it, I finish what I start and other stuff just has to wait.  I love seeing the finished product and pray that it looks like the idea I had in my head. 

No sewing was done today.  I had to bathe and wash my hair and make blueberry cake.  I swear it gets better every time I make it.  It’s so nice to have the time to experiment.  I wasn’t too happy with the strawberry banana muffins, but I have some more ideas.   

I’m not real happy with the pattern of my new socks and I have changed a few things to make it knit faster.   The pattern is so hard to see that it doesn’t matter.  The yarn is wonderful.  I”m thinking about going to a size smaller needle when I get to the ankle.  I may also loose a few socks
