I have my book I wanted to post early this morning but got in a little late and wanted to started reading as soon as I could after I got home. I love to people watch so after dinner last night my daughter and I got out the lawn chairs and sat on the sidewalk waiting for 11:30 and time to lineup. I think this went pretty smoothly, The lining everyone up at 11:30 first group A, then B called into the store the group and put into a lined that wrapped around one side of the bookstore then the count down and then you could get your book I was out of the store and in my car by 12:20 so not bad but then came the slight bit of car trouble and me daughter following my home to Asheboro instead of going back to Winston-Salem. I started about 2:00 and read until 4:30 slow reader so only made it to page 85 now on page 231. I am avoiding must places on the internet so that I won't find out before I am finished with the book whats going to happen I have not looked at the back page so I don't know what the final word is in the book. I you have finished the book please don't leave any comments about the ending. Happy crocheting and knitting and reading to all Happy Potter fans.

The count down is on!!!!!! I was at Barnes & Nobles at 8:40 this morning and I was greeted by a long line of people waiting for the store to start giving out the wristbands at 9:00 am. One 9:00 came around I think the line moved fairly quick because I was back in my car by 9:50. The woman that gave me my wristband stated no #'s this time we will be let in the store in groups. So I am in group C, the party starts at 7:00 lots of games for the children and I heard a lot of people in line talking about dressing up as characters from the books. I will not dress up I just can't go that far, 2 trips to Greensboro in 1 days is pushing things. I am meeting my daughter at Macaroni Grill at 7:00 for dinner and then I will sit around in the parking lot or on the sidewalk where ever they allow you to wait. They start lining everyone up at 11:30.

I started a Coffee Mitt today in my last knitting class. It is shaping up very well and I am so happy with my start to the Coffee Mitt. I need to take another set of classes then build some confidence that I can do this my self. So far I can knit, purl, increase, decrease, and slip a stitch. I need to get yarn over and I am sure a lot more that these things. I will be so glad when Knitty Gritty starts a new season. It finally rained today so I did not have to water the garden today. I have the day off work on Friday and I can't wait until Friday. I am planning to go to Greensboro on Friday morning to pick up my wrist band at Barnes and Noble. I am sure I will be up late on Saturday Morning trying to read a few chapters of Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows. This is it the end of the series. I will post a picture of the start to the Coffee Mitt. Happy crocheting and knitting.
