What I did on Saturday

I sneezed, like 500 times, I'm not kidding.
I used a box of tissues.
I took 2 allergy pills and some extra kid liquid stuff to help stop the runny nose.
I think I went grocery shopping and did some laundry, and someone made dinner (again, I think it was me)
I haven't sneezed yet this morning.
I have to finish the shopping today, and more laundry and get ready for the week.

Sister is coming Friday!!! I have to pick her up at the I leave the jumper cables home??

They look familiar....maybe like the Vogue Garter Heel?? I'll have to check.

My dad would be so proud!!!

When my parents bought me my first car ('77 Mercury Cougar), they also bought me a pair of jumper cables. I have never needed to use them. They sat in the plastic bag from Jefferson Beach Marina(we used to have a sailboat). As I bought new cars, the bag was always transferred from the the new. Always the same bag, never having been used.

In June, I had to pick up Mother from the airport, as I was waiting curbside, a gentleman next to me asked if I had jumper cables, he car was dead. I pulled them out of the current car (minivan) and he hooked them up...started up the car and off he went. Very thankful for the help.

Then on Monday, I had to pick up Mother from the airport (again). This time I parked in the cell phone lot. As I was waiting and reading, the gentleman next to me you happen to have jumper cables?? His brand new car would not start. I laughed, saying "Everytime I come to the airport, someone uses my jumper cables. If my dad was still alive, he'd be so proud of me"
He replied, "If my dad was still alive, he'd be so pissed at me".

So dad, I hope you're smiling at me. Thanks!!!

No photos or descriptions, it may be the "gift" of the year.

Finished Waving Lace

The 2-at-a-time socks are FINALLY finished. Cast on Aug 8, finished last night 10pm. I am so glad these are done. A few glitches in the system, that I did not know how to fix, but I am happy with the end result.

These socks have taken such a toll on me, I think I'm taking the next month off!! I have been knitting just socks for 2 years straight. A few "not socks projects" were thrown in, but now I am going to concentrate exclusively on the Modern Quilt Wrap.

And if I get bored (which is a great possibility) I will cast on a pair of socks.

The coolest thing!

I found out the coolest thing today. You know how you can put Gogurt in the freezer? You can eat them frozen (or put in the kid's lunchbox and by lunchtime it is ready to eat). while looking through the coupons, Whips had a coupon and then on the other page mentioned having it FROZEN!!! You put it in the freezer (for a few hours) then presto, FROZEN YUMMY YOGURT!!

It was great! I've had 2 today :)

Those darn socks are still on the needles. I think 1/2 round of the pattern and then toe decrease.

Not much knitting today, I spent 6 hours inputting the information for the 476 children at the elementary school (I'm in charge of the directory).

oh man!

Well, back to school and back to work means no knitting what-so-ever! I have been so tired these past few nights, I've not even wanted to think about knitting.

I did start the MQW and have the first row completed. That's been put aside so that I may finish these darn Waving Lace socks!

They are taking foooooorrrrrrreeeeeevvvvveeeerrr! and I've made a few "artistic" changes (mistakes) and don't know how to fix them, as I'm still new to this 2-at-a-time thing. I'm sure they will be fine. Again, the decreases are taking a long time (this may be due to the "artistic" changes) I believe I have 3 more to do. Then 1/2 round of the pattern and I'm hoping, the toe decreases. I'm going to go with the star toe that was used for the BareNakedLacy socks. Hoping to finish this weekend.

New Project !!!

I'm going to start a new project; and I'm pretty sure it's not going to go as fast as socks. This is going to be so pretty!! Sister has already laid claim to it, but we'll see what happens!!

Wake up call

I have not been up this early, showered, coffee, breakfast and ready to leave in almost 7 years! This is the pits!!! I want to go back to vacation mode.

We have to leave the house, for MS, at 7:30 this and I must be presentable, so my new wake up time is 6:00 AM, though I've been up since 4:00 am.

Nap time yet??
