That song wouldn’t have sounded right — “Rainy days and fridays always get me down…”. Usually people LOVE fridays, but I don’t know about today, since it is POURING down rain!!
Yesterday I was MISERABLE the entire day! Disneyland Dad came home and said “I see we are having a visit from the hormone fairy!!!” I am much better today (but still a little edgy!) LOL!! I just think it was from being up too late. I don’t seem to be able to do that any more.
I did do a little knitting yesterday. I knit a bunny leg. Five of us — Yvonne, Donna, Heather, Stick and Dani — are doing this little round robin thingie making knit animals. Cute, cute. The yarn for this bunny is JoAnn Sensations Angel Hair. It is really soft and nice to knit with. I was surprised —
Here’s a photo of the beginning of the rabbit leg:
See the needles? They are Crystal Palace double points –love them. Best double points I have ever used. If I would have used these to begin with I may have never tried the MAGIC LOOP.
I have to get used to this new blog and figure stuff out! If any of you WordPress users have any “hints” give me a shout. (One thing is there a way to put color in your words???)
I know, I know, Christmas is over (unless you do Russian Christmas –we don’t) . But here is our Christmas tree on Christmas morning before the gifts were opened. It’s still up. Maybe this weekend it will come down, haven’t really had the time, or inclination to take it down. It looks very pretty and the house looks so EMPTY when it comes down.
I had mentioned in a previous post that my SP9 sent me some SNOWMAN SOUP. For those that didn’t know, SNOWMAN SOUP is hot cocoa mix. You put all the ingredients for homemade cocoa (dry, naturally) and marshmallows into a jar; packaged as “SNOWMAN SOUP”. Cute!!!
My SP9 also sent me these Christmas tree decorations:
Aren’t they cute? That is different types of yarn in each one!!! Next year they will be on the tree!!!
I have to do a few errands today. Pay the mortgage and van payments, so I have a place to live and something to put in the garage for another month. Get something straightened out the bank did wrong in my son’s account yesterday. (oh, something’s dangling in that sentence and I don’t care!)
I need to run by the library and return a few books.
DEAD CENTER by Shiya Ribowsky. Very good. It is about the Medical Examiner’s office in NYC. A good portion of the book talks about 9-11. Interesting and heart-rendering reading it from the point of view of the Medical Examiner.
I LIKE YOU by Amy Sedaris (subtitled: Hospitality under the Influence). Funny lady. Interesting recipes. Some odd advice.
Have a good day, keep dry and/or warm, and comment!! I’d like to know you have been here!!!
