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

Hello all,

Rain! Yes we needed it but boy it came down around noon
today. I was driving home from the dentist and it was
coming down so hard, my wipers were on as high as they
could go and the rain was still overcoming them. We
drove relatively slowly due to all the water coming
down. The whole way home and a while after getting
home it came down like blazes. Later, when I went
out to the post office it was just raining normally.
Oh, I couldn't eat lunch till late due to a numbed
mouth. Isn't that the way. Luckily the next appt.
next month is after lunch.

It also decided to rain last night as I was coming
home from my Knitting Guild meeting in Whitehall,
about a 45 min. drive. Towards home it stopped
for a while, but then as I was coming down our
road it started up again. I was glad I was able
to pull into the garage.

The last time I saw rain come down like it did
around noon, was when we lived in Florida. I
can remember it was raining so hard on a major
road I was on, that I pulled over to the side
of the road until it slowed down. Down there
it rained every day around 5 PM. My kids loved
jumping in the puddles when it was done.

So, I've been reading the Kindle and the book
I got about walking 10,000 steps each day.
I got my pedometer this week on Tuesday, so
the first week, we are supposed to use as a
baseline once we add it together and divide
by 7. Then we can work on getting above
our baseline. So Wednesday I did 5786 steps
and yesterday, Thursday, I did 7829. So far
today, I've done 5311, but I'm not done the
day yet. Maybe I should walk around the house
outside before I watch TV.

So, I knitted at my Guild, starting a sweater.
