Weekend almost over

Well spent most of my morning trying to get over Friday night and to many Pomegranate Margaritas my sister and her husband came over and we made margaritas. Found the recipe in December 2008 Southern living. Watched 27 dresses and then my mother and I took down the Christmas decoration in the yard. My daughter could not help she had to go back to school for cheer leading practice. I finished reading Dead Men Don't Crochet, by Betty Hechtman I really enjoyed the read. I enjoy cozy mysteries. No knitting today. Happy crafting.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year. I hope every one has had a Happy first day of the new year. I spent most of the day watching The Twilight Zone marathon and The Planet of the Apes marathon. I love both. Spent time reading Dead Men Don't Crochet and knitting a few rows on my Christmas Carol Scarf. It is the first day of 2009. What will 2009 hold for me. I hope great things. This is just a quick post to start off the new year so I don"t have to much going on today. I cooked a pork tenderloin, black eyed peas and heated a collard my mother cook for today. Very nice meal. So happy crafting. Christmas December 2006.

New Year's Eve

Only a few hours left in the year. New Years Eve pretty good day so far. I forgot to meet my Friend for lunch today and I really hate that because it is hard to find time to spend with my friend she has a husband and 2 children well one is an adult and one teenager but both are still living at home and her husband is a minister. So after a few emails this afternoon we have made arrangement to meet on Friday for lunch. I had to go out to Walmart today and to Food Lion. I had to pick up a few things at Walmart and Food Lion had Champagne on sale 3 for $11.00 so I brought 6 bottles and no I won't drink them all tonight. I will save some for a later date. I have spent most of the day watching The Twilight Zone Marathon on the Sci-Fi channel. I look forward to this every year. I will change to Dick Clark around 11:30. I need to add a few rows to my Christmas Carol Scarf. So far no reading today or knitting. I received an offer in the mail yesterday to subscribe to Vogueknitting I don't have any plans to subscribe but in the letter they did send a free pattern for a ribbed cap simple pattern and they used Noro/KFI's Kureyon #102 pink. So now I need to talk my self out of going to Stitch Point on Saturday to buy a skein for the cap. I hope everyone has a Happy New Year. Happy crafting.

Another long weekend

You know I could get use to a 2 day work week and long as I am getting paid for 5 days. I made it I have all my cases processed and I am off work for the rest of the week. I have the house to myself until New Year's Day. So I plan to enjoy my time off. I did not get a chance to knit, or read yesterday after work. After work I got home a started a pot of chili so I could give some to my daughter and her boyfriend to take to the beach, my mother baked a ham and made yeast rolls. My daughter and her boyfriend got to the house at around 10:30 or 11:00 she had to work yesterday. We had a very nice visit. I am trying very hard not to get to attached to this boyfriend but he is so nice and very like able. Sunday made the 8 months. Her longest relationship since college. So I got to bed late and had to get up and go to work today, the first few hours at work was rough but made it through and as stated earlier I finished processing all the cases I needed to get done by the end of the month. It was not easy. Finished a few rows on my Christmas Carol Scarf and I plan to read later tonight. Just a quick update tonight no new pictures to post. Happy crafting. Christmas beach trip 2006.

It was nice to have her home. During the school year she is very busy with classes , cheer leading, working and of course her boyfriend. I have a hard 2 days ahead of me this week. I need to get all my cases processed so I can take Wednesday off work the office is closed on New Year's Day. I have asked for New Year's Eve off work a who wants to go back to work on Friday after having Thursday off so I requested Friday off too. I have both days off but if I can't get finished with my cases I might have to work at least half a day on Wednesday. So far no knitting today might knit a few rows tonight. Happy crafting.
