New Camera

December 30, 2009

My daughter bought my son and me a small digital camera.  I’ve been wanting one to carry when I am walking and Win’s is old.  It’s something I wouldn’t buy for myself because I all ready have a good digital, but this new one certainly is handy.  I took it with me yesterday.  It takes decent pictures. 

This is the pier that my neighbor lets me enjoy.   I didn’t sit there today.  It was too cold and windy.  I didn’t relish the possibility of going in the river.  Can you see how high the tide is?

Jenn came down yesterday with a load of firewood for Doug.  She brought enough for two or three years.  Doug was happy as can be.

Here’s my goofy Gus.  He loves his walk.  If it weren’t for him, we probably wouldn’t walk nearly as much as we do.

Flo loves to curl up on my sweaters.

I’ve been looking for my camera case pattern, but I can’t find it anywhere.  Win has all ready asked for a case.  He wants red.  I have a nice metallic knit and some brown suede for the inside.   I haven’t decided on mine yet.  I have lots of pieces I can use.

And A Good Time Was Had by All

December 28, 2009

My babies!  My son went out and bought his sister a nice present and even wrapped it.

I know that he may look like he doesn’t have a brain in his head, but  he is rather bright.  He’s also my grandson.

Bo, their Maine Coon

I showed Cora my gift from my grandson, but she was unimpressed.  What does she know? 

Busy Week

May 30, 2009

The plan was to go to Reisterstown for a few days, visit and maybe ride up to Pennsylvania to shop.  But it didn’t happen.  Wednesday morning, I noticed the tag on Win’s car was about to expire.  I wound up driving it back that evening since it had to be inspected by Friday.  We took it to DMV Thursday morning.   It passed and we bought a two year sticker.  Win drove my car back Thursday afternoon.

This morning around 6AM, Olive and Zip decided to play king and queen of the clothes basket.  After they settled down, Gus started snoring.  I finally gave up and got up at 7Am.  I read for a while, then cooked sausage for breakfast.  When Win got up, I made pancakes.  He wanted to go to the Beach.  Luckily, he didn’t care if I went with him.  I think that if I had had a good night’s sleep, I would have liked to have gone also.

Well, Friday evening is finally here.  Things are back to normal.  We went out to eat with the neighbors, then Win went home.  Maybe, I’ll o again in a few weeks, and, hopefully, the sunhat will be finished.

On the knitting front, I’ve started another pair of gloves.  I’m using Noro sock yarn.  I’m up to the little finger all ready.  Gloves are instant gratification.  I’ll post a picture when I find my camera.

Orange Crush is Finished

October 1, 2008

I am very happy to report that I finished my quilt today.  I am still in Reisterstown so no picture yet.  I put it on the bed.  It looks good.  Maybe the weather will be nice when I get home and I can hang it out on the line for a picture.

I got some framing prices for Win’s diploma and wound up at an art studio down the street.  I got just what I wanted and the price was a lot better than going through the school.  I think it looks better than what they had to offer.

Tomorrow, I will be heading home.  My leg still hurts from walking around on concrete yesterday.  I want to stop in Catonsville again and at another furniture store on the way home so I’m hoping I’ll feel better.  I also finished my gloves and will have pictures for you.  I had a nice visit, but I will be happy to get home.
