What to say. What to say.
Since my last post…
My Uncle Sam passed away. He was the only Uncle to be at my wedding party and I remember his smiling face. He was also my Father’s last surviving brother.
I stayed home from bowling for 2 weeks.
I’ve only gone out 3 times, to the grocery store, because of whatever crud I’ve been fighting. I mean, I haven’t wanted to go into a store – no Macy’s, no Kohl’s, no nuthin’ – if that’s not sick, what is?
I had to get my grandmother’s ring cut off of my finger. The people at the jewelry store REEEEALLLLY tried to get it off but when I had to sit down from the pain – I’m talking tears flowing and sweating all over – they stopped. It was a “wanna cry” moment because I’ve been wearing it for 14 years and I feel so bare without it. I had that done on Wednesday and my finger still shows the “ring” being there. It’s not that the ring was tight. I was able to move it up and down but I couldn’t get it off of my finger because my knuckle was…um…larger than when the ring first got there. So now I have to decide what to do with the ring. Resize for ring finger? Make into an index finger ring? I don’t want to alter the ring by making it a pinky ring. It just means too much to me.
I’ve sold over 30 sets of markers – I can’t believe it! I’ve also been wrapping markers like a son-of-a-gun.
Tom’s been feeling better. He’s half-way thru his antibiotics for his sinus infection.
Hey! At least the cat’s been fine.
OK. Now onto the photo portion of our show.
My second FO. Koolhaas in Burgundy Malabrigo, for me. (don’t look at the no make-up, m’kay?)
Tom wants another one so I’m going to use the Buscando Azul (photo at bottom). I can’t stop making these hats. Anybody want one? 🙂
I got my prize from Marisol, for being her 1000th commenter…commentator?…commentitian?…commentologist?. A cool t-shirt with her banner on it.
I got a few new yarns – but I didn’t pay for them so I didn’t break my diet!
Tempted Yarns Luxury Sock Yarn in Paris colorway
2 skeins of Wildfoote. Tom went to the Down Cellar and bought these for the sock machine (Not for me but for the MACHINE. LOL)
He also bought ME 2 skeins of Malabrigo in Autumn Forest. The ladies there loved that he was buying yarn for his wife. Doesn’t every husband do that?
Not wound yet so no photo. It’s SO much prettier when it’s wound into a cake.
