Well it's New Year's Eve 2009 is about to come to an end. It is foggy tonight and I am really disappointed because tonight is a blue moon. We won't have another blue moon for 19 years! I keep checking outside to see if the Sykes have cleared but no such luck. I am trying not to become depressed because I am still in the same shape financially as I was last year, my hope was to change that circumstance. It did not happen and my finances are in the same dismal shape. I am trying to keep hope alive. I am thankful for a job and a place to lay my head. I did not get my second sock done, I need to make it my New Year's Resolution to finish the socks. I did get 3 crocheted afghans , 4 scarves 1 crocheted and 3 knit, 16 dishcloths. My best year so far for finished projects. I need to move beyond the basics. I have read 16 books, most of them knit or crochet related. I finished up the knitted items I plan to give my friend at work today. I might try to finish another dishcloth by Sunday to add to the gift. I have a bottle of pink champagne in the refrigerator waiting on the stroke of 12:00!

It is the middle of the week already. If I was working this week this would be Monday at 10:00am. I could really get use to not working. I love not getting up until I want to every morning and doing just what I want to even if that is nothing. My daughter arrived on Monday after work and spent Monday and Tuesday night. Today day was the day she had planned to have oral surgery but she went to the Dr on Monday because she was not feeling well and she has bronchitis and could not have the surgery. So yesterday we took my mother to the doctor went to visit our cousin and my grandmother my daughter's great grandmother, went out for lunch at Olive Garden. Today my mother and I went to Piggly Wiggly in Siler City. It has been years since I have been to a Piggly Wiggly, when I was a little girl we had a Piggly Wiggly. I found out Siler City had a Piggly Wiggly but I could not figure out where the store was located. The store is about 30 minutes away from us, we had a mission in mind, looking for a certain pork product. We found that product and at this time it is cooking in preparation for the New Year's Day meal. I knit the last few row's of the Magic Scarf last night while watching the movie that started the Ma and Pa Kettle movie series The Egg and I. I did not get to watch the whole movie got sleepy. So my plan is to watch again tonight. While I cast on another dishcloth to give my friend at work. Yesterday I paid another visit to BellaFilati Luxury Yarns located at 275 NE Broad St Southern Pines, NC 910-692-3538 , www.bellafilati.com . Great shop, with very helpful and nice people. I was able to find just the right yarn to start a scarf for my youngest niece.

I can hardly believe it is the last Sunday of the year! Time passes by so quickly. I have spent the day knitting, watching t.v. , and browsing the Internet. I visit all my favorite sites. Crochetville and Ravelry. The scarf I am knitting for my friend at work is coming along, I can't decide where to stop. I think I will add another 30 rows. I want it to be long enough to wrap around her neck twice. It feels so good to know that I have the week off and tomorrow morning I can sleep late. I am listening to Breaking Dawn on cd again. I find it very relaxing to listen to a book on cd while I knit. Only 5 days until the first of the year, new year's eve is Thursday. Happy crafting!
