Sweetums Needed New Shoes

August 25, 2011

So we drove over to the Rehoboth outlets.  I wanted to look into the Dooney Bourke and, of course, Fossil.  We were on Route 9 to get to Route 1, when we came upon signs that said Detour and Shoulder Work Ahead.  Only it wasn’t.  It was Extreme Makeover.  I was surprised at how much work had been accomplished and how well organized eveything looked.  I believe they started on Monday.  That’s a really big soup kitchen.  It was a little slow due to rubber neckers.  But what do you expect?  This is LSD you know.  Around here, when a workman says he’ll have it done by Christmas, you need to ask which Christmas. 

Further on down the road, we stopped at the dairy farm and got chocolate shkes with black raspberry ice cream.  It was so good that I got brain freeze.  It’s a good thing I wasn’t driving. 

Sweetums only likes one kind of Reeboks.  Yeah.  I know.  Boring.  But I can’t point the finger.  I only wear Haflingers.  He parked by Fossil and walked over to Reeboks.  He was finshed by the time I came out of Fossil.  I bought a change puse.  I didn’t see anything else interesting.  I went to Dooney & Bourke and he followed me.  Here, again, I saw several things,but that was ‘just right’.  Sweetums liked a red suede, but it wasn’t quite right.    He is now looking at purses on-line for me.  That’s why I call him Sweetums.

Spam on One of my Patterns

May 22, 2011

I was getting over 100 dirty comments a day on my entrelac scarf pattern.  I was able to find out how it happened, but I couldn’t stop it.   I had to permanently delete the comment so it shouldn’t happen again.  I also had to remove the pattern.  If anyone would like to have it, email me at and I will send it out to you. 

My son was here on Wednesday and Thursday.  We needed new phones.  His was falling apart and mine had keys that were getting stuck.  He thought about a smart phone, but decided that is was more of a toy than anything.  We bought an LG for one dollar.  The last LGs lasted for five years so it seemed a good deal.  He also needed new tennis shoes so we went to the outlets.  He didn’t find anything.  I walked over to Fossil and found a new handbag.  I hate that place.


And, of course, I couldn’t pass this up.

It’s been a little too warm to work on my sweater.  I did manage to make pockets.  I am not certain that I like them yet.  Maybe if I let them lay around for a few days they will look better.

They’re a little weird.  Hopefully, they will look better on.

3/4ths a Headache

December 14, 2010

I don’t have half a headache or a whole headache.  It’s definitely 3/4ths.  Once again my sinuses are full of green goop that I could use to seal any cracks that there might be in the concrete.  It has put me in the loveliest of moods.  So after a couple of weeks of this, I called the GP for an appointment for tomorrow.  I had all ready decided that it was time to do some shopping.  I was hoping that the smow flurries would keep some people home.  I probably should have stayed home and called that radiology place in PA (the x-ray was done locally) and explain to them that they charged my insurance twice and I am not about to pay them $7 just because they are idiots and can’t read.  Going shopping and being nice to sales people seemed like more of a challenge. 

I headed over to Rehoboth and the outlets.  I thought about the yarn shop there and then remembered that I have been there twice and never bought anything.  When I go to a yarn shop, I like to buy something, especially around here.  They are too few and far between.  Both times I could find nothing that I was the least bit interested in.  I decided not to try again.  I didn’t want to get depressed too. 

My first stop was the Fossil store.  I hate this place.  I always buy something.  And they had several great looking handbags at half price.  All I wanted was a wallet for my daughter.  I found a wallet, wristlet and coin purse in red leather with little circles sewn on them so I got all three.  I also bought two handbags.  I’ll probably give her one for her birthday.  It’s in February and who wants to shop then.

Next, I stopped at a gift shop that always has lots of unique things.  I didn’t have much luck this year and I only found a Christmas ornament and a pin.  By this time, I was getting hungry and I really had to pee.   I stopped at a place that had a nice restroom so I figured I might as well eat there, too.  I got a chicken BLT.  It wasn’t bad, but everything was piled in the middle and I had to rearrange it.  It also had cheese and pickles on it which I thought was strange.  The pickles were really good which was a surprise.  I ate them separately.  The tomatoes had to be removed.  I think they were made out of styrofoam.  You’d think I would learn after all these years.  They also had good coleslaw so I forgave them for the other stuff.

  Here’s my third shawl.  I put that pattern to good use.  I have decided to make a hat and gloves to go with my stars sweater next.  I have a lot of the yellow left.  Maybe I’ll make a scarf, too.  I don’t know.  Scarves can get boring.
