My son and I were over in Cockeysville and a sign said 104 degrees.  I should go home.  At least the whole house is air conditioned, not just some rooms.  When we lived here, we tried a couple of times to get central air.  It took several calls just to get someone to come and then they never called back.  This happened twice.

I said that I would fix his pants for him, but I am going to take the machine to another room.  I wish he had

called about that before I left.  I would have brought my Sapphire, but I am stuck with my old piece of s**t Brother.

If this post looks odd, please remember , I am not at my usual computer.

You Make My Day

January 24, 2008
Look what Christine sent me! It was totally unexpected. Thanks so much. See what she wrote about me! 
“Fluffy- Knitter extraordinaries! She says that she is up the creek without a paddle but I say she has both paddles in the water plus we both like Pavarotti. I would love to spend an afternoon with you. We could knit and listen to music and talk about books and old movies. Plus I love her cats…they crack me up!”
I have been such a cranky person today. It really lifted my spirits. Both hips have been bothering me today. I know exactly where all the new parts are in my right hip today. They seem——-cold? It’s hard to explain. My left hip has been having sympathy pains. So, I’m a bit grumpy. Even though I wanted to smack her, I managed to smile at the clerk at Walmart today. She has no idea how lucky she is. Then we went to the bread store and there were no bagels. I had just bought cream cheese people! So I bought English muffins. It’s just not the same. And they didn’t have Oatnut bread AGAIN! I wanted to go home and stick my head in the toilet. So. How was your day?

Zippo suggested a little sewing. He was right of course. Now, I just have put on the binding.

Maude enjoyed hiding in the cover.

Sorry about this one. I was on the phone.

I will send out my awards tomorrow. Hopefully, I’ll be in a better mood.

Ice onthe Creek

January 5, 2008

I was surprised to see all this ice when I got up.

It wasn’t windy and I was feeling better so I went on a walk with the dog.  We walked down the main road and then cut through the woods to the river.  The water was really moving.  Gus likes to run along the beach when the tide is down, but today he wasn’t at all interested.  We were out for an hour.  It wasn’t bad, but I was glad to get home and get warm.  There’s nothing like a good cup of coffee on a cold day.

I started sewing on the table runner.  Zippo helped.  He had a lot to say.

  Look.  I made a snowflake.  I programed it into my machine and put several on the top.  I really like this machine. 

I got some knitting done.

  After I finish this hat, I am going to make gloves to go with the hat I made last week.

I’m pretty tired.  I should go to bed.
