Well, the carpet is clean and Di is feeling much better. I felt so so sorry for her, she was very sick and she was afraid she was going to get into trouble; Di is such a good dog. My daughter came home with a carpet cleaner Friday night and cleaned the entire mess. I tried doing the hand thing, but Di was having more incidents than I could keep up with (I quit counting after 30 spots). She finally started feeling better (and quit having “incidents”) Saturday morning. Now life can go on. lolololol
I received some great stuff in the mail Saturday; first, I received the Traveling Charity Blanket from the Whodunit group so I can add my four inches of knitting to it. I am using a pastel baby green (this blanket is all pastels another group is using primary colors) and I haven’t quite decided what type of stitch to use, though I am leaning towards a basket stitch. You can see in the picture how pretty Jane’s and Danielle’s portion is, so I have a ways to go to keep it as nice as theirs is. When the blanket has made the rounds, it will be donated to charity, I think there are 4 blankets going the rounds now, one is only crochet, 2 are knitted, and one is a combination. In the package there were also tea, chocolate and stitch markers. Isn't it fun to get good stuff? :-) Now I have to figure out something great to add to the package for the remaining knitters.
I also received
some yarn and a CD from Rita from a contest she held. The yarn is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes and it is a beautiful color, Hyacinth, it is gorgeous. The CD is a signed copy of the Last Train Home, Live at the Iota; I wasn’t sure how I would like it, but it is great. Thank you Rita!
I notice that my last few posts are a lot of grousing, I hate that. A friend told me it was simply my hormones acting my age (I will be 53 next month.) The funny thing is, this is the first year having a birthday is not depressing to me; it doesn’t bother me so why is it bothering my freaking hormones? I guess it is partially the Big M, (ya think?). I will try to keep the whining and grousing to a minimum in the future, I know it is not pleasant to read and it is not anyone else’s fault that I am having hormone issues.
I have been knitting, very little as Di need so much attention, but I am back to it today!
I hope you are having a great weekend!
