Happy Turkey Day

So I certainly send my best to all on this Thanksgiving Eve.

Not cooking tomorrow just hanging out knitting. Family spread
all over the country. That's what happens when the kids grow up.

Have a great day and be grateful for all we have.

Knitting Presents

So today I finished a Christmas present and began working on another. Will put pics up after Christmas.

The project I completed today was made from t-shirt yarn which I made from cotton shirts. It was hard on my hands...really dried them out. It was fun to recycle though.

The next project is for one of my grand daughters...she's going to love it. I'm lucky that so far everyone enjoys my hand knit items they have received. I have read alot of knitters don't get that enjoyment of knowing an item they have knit for days or weeks is not appreciated.

Well going to watch "Dexter" and then head for wonder I can't get to sleep at night (a serial killer?)!!!

Spring Day in November

Oh what a great weeks worth of weather we had. Actually thought it finally was spring...58, 65 & yesterday it was 73. I love it when November weather is great...

Still knitting like a crazy person trying to finish birthday gifts....then to finish Christmas...
It's hard to do anything else when one is on a mission. A good mission but a big one.

Must make a few pieces of jewelry too!!!!!!

Have a great Sunday and enjoy life,

"No Reply"

Oh what a great song by McCartney/Lennon......"No Reply". To have grown up and marked special events by "The Beatles" is magnificent. I love being a baby boomer and have seen and heard the wonderful musicians of our era.

It is odd how each song meant something different back in the day and reflected on that period of time in our lives.

I can still listen to all the wonderful music and remember the times. Frusteration, fun, peace & love among us all.. It's fun to know our children and now our grandkids are exposed and enjoying this music. It seems to mean something different for each of us. I was remembering an old boyfriend from my "Sweet 16" party. How funny is that.

Well enjoy this week.....and by the way GO YANKEES!!!!!!!!!!!

Peace & Love,
