Ok, Here they are. Knitting pictures I have been promising you. They are - My niece Paula (I didn't knit her!), baby items I made for her, the beginning of my gloves and matching hat.
Paula and my other niece Casey, came here from CT for the weekend and my daughter came home for the weekend. We had a little baby shower for Paula. My sister, another niece and her daughter came over as well. It was nice, informal, just "us girls", food and presents. Paula and Casey stayed here Fri. night (thank you Ashley for letting Paula use your bed).
Fall is really starting to set in here! It has been in the 50's, Wed. it should get up close to 70! Woo Hoo! I am starting to do some fall projects with the kids.
My life is kind of like one of those email jokes "you know you are getting old when..." This is what everyday is like for me.
I will put in a load of laundry, see a poster that needs to be hung for the kids, go to get a hammer for the tacks, on the way I spot the washer, it's done, so I put them in the dryer, go to the living room, realize I didn't get the hammer, go back for the hammer, think "I should write this down for my blog", put the hammer on the couch so I can type on my computer, see some old mail on the table and think "I should go get the mail, get mail and bring it to the living room, see the hammer on the couch, finally hang up poster about 20 min. later! This is no joke!
I finished reading "Nude Men" it was sad at the end. So it went from being Hilarious, gross, then sad. I found out why it was called Nude Men. In the beginning a guy, Jeremy, meets a woman who is a painter of nude men, so I thought that was the reason. Then he becomes friends with her and her 11 yr. old daughter. They find out the daughter, Sarah, is dieing from a tumor. During a Doctor's visit, they leave the building and Sarah is hit and killed by a car! Jeremy askes the person how she could possibly hit the little girl! The woman says she was distracted by a nude man in a window of a nearby building. It turns out that the nude man was Jeremy's best friend who knew nothing of the accident, let alone that he was the cause!
I am now reading "The Girl Who Stopped Swimming" It is a murder mystery. I don't think there are any nude men in it.
New song this week is "The Lighthouse Tale" by Nickel Creek. It is a really sad song if you listen to the words. It tells a story. This is my favorite Nickel Creek song! Of course I would like the sad ones!
