Stars Sweater

March 10, 2010

I finally knit the last six rows.  Yeah.  The shoulder seams were also sewn.  Next, I am going to knit on the neckband.  I may actually get this thing completed. 

I have also been sewing.  I found a little flag quilt kit.  It took a while to cut all the little wavy pieces, but it’s been fun sewing the pieces together.

If anyone is interested, I put a new pattern up for gloves.  It’s for my friend who has large hands.  I ‘ll be writing another in a smaller size, too. 

I want to see Alice in Wonderland so I called my daughter to see if my grandson wanted to go.  She told me there was a water main break in town.  School has been closed so Kevin has been babysitting has other grandmother.  I couldn’t help but laugh.  She had a knee replacement over a week ago and doesn’t want to do her exercises.  She wants to be waited on.  My daughter can’t stand it.  She and I are very independent and want to do everything ourselves.  I  really  feel sorry for Kevin.  He deserves to see a good movie.

It’s Too Hot

August 21, 2009

I’ve been trying to catch up with things that I’ve been putting off for months now that’s it’s gotten too hot to be outside. 

Wednesday, I made myself get down to Salisbury by 9AM to get my permanent teeth.  After a short(YEAH!) wait, I got to sit back for a while with sticky gunk in my mouth.  After a longer wait, I got to try on a wax impression with teeth.  Then, I was told to go away and come back at 2PM.  Well.  I was hungry.  All I had had was warmed up coffee.  I decided a nice breakfast was in order.  Doug was interested, so I went out by myself.  It was actually nice not having to make small talk.  I took a book with me and finished it.  I also stopped at Mernie’s and bought corn and peaches.  Corn on the cob is a great way to test new teeth.  Also, the peaches have been exceptionalthis year.  I wandered back to the dentist office.  I was number 11 on the list, but I was the fifth one called.  My new teeth feel different, but they don’t hurt.  They look better.  They look natural and they don’t push my mouth out like the old ones.  What more can I ask?  And, yes, I ate corn on the cob for supper that same day.

For my knitting friends, I will be adding two new pages soon.  I writing basic glove patterns using worsted and sport weight yarn. 

Dog Bed

Dog Bed

Gus is so kitten-pecked!  Sometimes I think that I would like to have a little dog, but Gus can’t stand them.  He has a fit whenever he sees one.  Maybe he’s afraid they will cut into his kitty time.  There was an adorable little dog with the cats at one of the shelters.  The woman said she loves the cats.  He would have been perfect.  Do you think Gus can read my mind?
