It's been a long time since I blogged. Sorry about that.
But I have been knitting. I have been working on this
Shawl, from Mason Dixon Knitting. It's called the Nina
Shawl. The one that they give directions for, is pink
and black. On the next page they give two other groups
of colors. When I went to my Lys, she didn't have the
type of cotton needed. So we found some yarn that would
work, and played with colors until I found these. I
didn't realize at the time that it is red, white and blue.

The other thing I am knitting is a Stacked iCord Cowl.
You can see the pile of iCords on the left. I am
working on number 5 with 2 more to go I think. The
pattern is from VK Live Magazine. It is a 6-stitch

Besides knitting I've been reading books on my Kindle.
The book at the moment is called "A Kiss of Adventure."
Sorry I don't remember the author, they only give
it at the beginning of the book.

I am also at times, reading the 2nd "Thirst" book.
I noticed at K-Mart that there is a 3rd 'Thirst'
book but will wait till I finally finish the
2nd one.

I mostly read my Kindle, but between books I
sometimes pick up the Thirst book.

So, we've been having several very nice days.
We know it's not going to stay warm. One
morning several days ago it was 36 degrees.
Today it was 80.

Well, I want to go read.

I got up late at 9:30. Hubby was snoring after we went to bed at Midnight. So I moved to the couch in the living room. Went back into the bedroom around 3 AM and he was still snoring, which is unusual. I didn't want to go back to couch, so just sort of tuned him out, and finally managed to sleep. That's why I got up so late.

We went to see Avatar 3D today. That was interesting and the movie was good. We both liked it. Then he took me out to eat at a Chicken place. Then to Loews, to pick up sealant for the Shower stall that might be delivered Monday. If they had known that we had paid for the delivery, it would have come today, but maybe Monday. We did notice while there that they had two of each of the shower stall pieces, so not reason not be delivered.

Nice to be home. Got some wash in, and really need to move it to the dryer.

No new blog yet.

Well, today I missed a dentist appointment. They called to tell me I missed it, and this time I got a warning but if I miss one again it will cost me $30. So, I need to get better at not missing appointments. Set a timer or something. My new appointment isn't till the end of March.

I spent the late morning looking at knitting books, to see what I might want to knit this year. I came up with 11 things so far. More books to go through. I'll let you know once I pick something to go first.

I gave up the diet I was trying after 1 week on it. It was too repetitive. Then while looking at the knitting books, I saw a Geneen Roth book. Later, when I decided to get out the Geneen Roth book, I found 4 or maybe 5. She says, to stop dieting, and eat what you want. I think I've found the thing I will make a new blog about.

So, keep your eyes open for a new URL.

Well, I haven't decided what I want to make a new blog
about, so I am back here.

No knitting to speak of. I did order size 1 double points,
but haven't gotten them yet. Figure a few more days for

Been trying to think of what I knit next if I can't make
the monkey. No ideas yet.

I'm reading Julie and Julia, the book now, on my Kindle.
I'm thinking this was written after the movie, but maybe
not as there are things that aren't in the movie.
Hubby gave me the DVD for Christmas.

I was looking through the few cookbooks I have left hanging
in the closet, looking through them to see I wanted to cook
them front to back, and no way. Ones a Mexican cookbook that
my hubby has. I looked at it, and no way. One is Gluten Free
Cookbook, but that isn't quite the thing either. Betty Crocker
has Gluten Free cakes, Brownies and cookies. Just made the
chocolate gluten free cake with cream cheese icing. Just the
bought kind. Hubby needs to eat gluten free but most of the time.
But many of my meatless things I make, are OK for him.

That's my news for now.

Hello all,

I know I haven't blogged since April. Sorry about that.
I'm not knitting much, so not so sure I should keep this
up. I might start a new blog soon, about something else.
If I do, I will put the new URL in here.

I've lost about 63 pounds at Weight Watchers this past
year or so. Still working to lose more, but having a
bit a trouble since the year hit in July. Going up and
down, and up and down. I just ordered and downloaded
the books for the Every Other Day Diet or EODD. I might start
a blog, about that. We'll see. I start that on Monday
the 11th.

I did knit a baby blanket for the new baby my son and wife
are having. I forgot to take a picture even though I
thought about it. It was knit with 2 colors of yarn
which kept changing, so there were some ends to get
in. They have gotten it. We're waiting to hear
when the baby is born.

Best wishes for the New Year!

Hello All,

I know I haven't blogged for a while, but I will try to do better.

This is my new purse I got online at I love it, it's big
and holds a lot. It has a zipper pocket and two open pockets for
cell phone and/or iPod, or whatever. I also have one of those things
that has a lot of pockets that you can take from purse to purse. I
have my digital Camera in there, and extra keys, pens and pencils, etc.
that move with it. Only the wallet that goes in the middle. Anyway
I think it's pretty too. Maybe you do too?

Not much knitting going on. I was doing a row on my sweater when
I noticed that the cable had come apart not with the metal end,
just the cable out of the bottom of the metal piece. (Options)
It must be the one I got the new cable for but couldn't find it
again. Well, I had to pick up the dropped stitches with the cable
end which isn't sharp or anything. When I got them picked up, I
noticed a loose loop hanging down. Don't know how to fix it, so
once I get the new cable on there somehow, I will take the row out
and try it again. When I have a few inches again, I will take a

So, I've been knitting
