A new month!`

Here is my post.
Busy with new job.....ok so it has been almost 1 year in my current position.
Waiting for knee replacement, that will be my October biggie.
Cleaned garage with DH for Labor Day-yes, it took all 3 days to do the 2 car side. sigh.
DH is painting outside before the cold weather hits......hope he finishes what he starts, sigh.
Other than that, just need to get the craft room organized and stuff ready lined up for recovery time.
Knit on.

It's true

I am suffering from cast-on-itis...........I "found" 2 orphan skeins of a denim yarn and have started a Feather and Fan shawl. Now I have heard this is a pattern long used, but I don't think I have ever done will be a long rectangular shawl, perfect for those cool times.
I am not so loving the long row, 283 stitches, but the pattern yes!
Today I have to get the camper back in the rotation, if I want to go camping, DH says we have to get the things done. I am on it, as soon as I get the flat of flowers in, as soon as I toss in another load of laundry , as soon as I get groceries from the store, as soon as I make lunch, as soon as I change the washer load to the dryer and put in another wash load, you get the picture.
So that is where my day is going, so much for a "day away from work". but it is only a 4 day work week!! So there is hope!
in the mean time...........
Knit on.

Electricity is

so nice. After the huge storms that came thru early Friday morning, we were finally restored to power at noon on Sunday.
Did not make the Peace Festival, and from what DH heard, not many were able to.
So I sold not a bag one.........oh, well. Christmas??
Maybe there will be another show in my future now that I have a small inventory!!
Off to work, DH is to go and pick up Kendra from camp, I would have liked to go, but no time off available. Never mind my work is caught up and ahead, sigh.....
Off to find things to do there today.
At least I do have a job, many don't
for the mean time..........
Knit On.

the beat goes on............and the beat goes on............on and on to the rhythm in my head...
So Saturday is the Peace Fennville? and I have signed up to have an artist's booth.
Felted bags made from re-claimed wool..............wool sweaters purchased/found, torn apart, yarn washed, re-knit then machine felted.......insane.
But good therapy and cheap yarn, lol.
I have near 25 bags to take would like to sell them all!!
Only $15 each...a decent price not too cheap, not a twenty......good deal for all.
I have approximately 48 cents in cost in each time knitting was free.........knitting is something I would do anyway.
So I will try to post the results of my folly.........uh, venture and experience at the Peace Festival.
In the mean time.............
Knit On.

Yelling Cat and Barking Dogs

Why is it when I come home to a house were the Mister won't be home for a couple of hours, I am met with a Yelling Cat and 2 barking dogs...........usually feeding watering and unwatering them all takes care of it, but today?? NO! These durned dogs are barking and barking, that demanding bark. Not the dog alarm one, just the needy one...........
I am trying to ignore it as DGH is home now and HE can deal with it, the cat has quit yelling, just into everything.
Tomorrow I plan on getting the paperwork in for her operation, that should quieten things down.
Off to work on a Mom's Day present.............
Knit on.

Only 4 months and a couple of days...

since my last post, lol.
We survived the harsh winter here.
Boy did I knit socks!!
Just returned from our first camping in the travel trailer for 2009!!
Still lots of tweakin to do in there, but it will be "dreamy" soon enough.
Probably no camping in the month of May??
We will concentrate on getting the homestead cleaned and straightened
after the winter. Oh and stockpiling up those limbs and branches for next winter.
in the Mean Time...
Knit On.
