Well, I just finished making up my May swap package to go out. I am having too much fun. I just love meeting new people and getting surprise packages in the mail as much as I enjoy making them up to send.

This month was great..actually wrapped all the little goodies into a ball of beautiful Rowan yarn. I hope my swap partner loves it as much as I did making it up.

Tomorrow is gardening day...have to put the flowers & vegetables into pots and make sure all those seeds get in soil.

The weather has finally turned and is wonderful.

Going to knit some more and get a good book going.

My Camera

I finally did it..I bought batteries. I cannot believe they cost me $8.79 plus tax.
Guess I need to invest in a charger as I do have rechargeable somewhere. What is the problem when a person (me) will not go out and purchase the darn batteries.

I have a digital so I have no excuse for not getting the film printed. So it is done and pics will be coming on my blog and Ravelry.

So watch for my projects finally. I have given alot as gifts but I can start from NOW..

Have a great week,

The Information Black Hole

Wow, there is so much information to be had. So many ways to get lost in the Black Hole of the Internet. I just love it except it has an impact on my writing....I don't do any when I get lost (not lost, just gaining more information).]

I find I get so involved searching and expanding the knowledge I gain I actually forget why I got on the Internet. was to write on my Blog today or yesterday any many other days it seems.

I don't want to complain because I am learning so much about everything, like knitting...other blogger sites (which I enjoy sooo much), political views of others and just plain funny blogs.

I need to pace myself and make a daily list with the amount of time I will allow myself to do certain things....(.not really because I know I won't do that) read blogs for 35 minutes, knit for 3 hrs.,eat something 3minutes (as I no longer cook) so as you see this will not work.!!!!

So for right now I am going to make some iced tea (sun of course), complete one more knitting project and then start another and watch Paul Tracey (used to work with at Realty Executives, a close friend of his & ex Canadian race car driver...)do well at the Indie 500!!!!!!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend and remember all of our past and present military...

I Am Back With A Vengance

Alright I really cannot explain what happened but I fudged on writing and looks like everything else online.....

I apologize to all. I really am enjoying life at 60 but seemed to be busy knitting, swapping and just being. Some small crisis now and then but all is well for the most part.

I have been interviewed for our local paper and have to get copies in the mail to my friends and family around the states. I'm sure they will be surprised. The young lady who interviewed me was great. I am not from South Dakota and have no family here but I enjoy the lazy lifestyle I have hustle like back east..

I have been knitting like crazy and still find it hard to find a balance for reading and participating in the outside world (ok just away from home).

Gotta go but will start being more disciplined about writing and reading..I promise...

Peace to all,
