The First Day of April

This is the first day of April we are in the fourth month in the year. Spring has sprung in North Carolina today it was in the 80's and I think it will be in the high 80's tomorrow. The baby afghan is progressing and I have started to add the green row's. I did not make it to the library today so it looks like a trip to Books-A-Million will be in order. Tomorrow my mother and I plan to go to Piggy Wiggly in Siler City. Just to look around. They have a wine that both my mother and I really enjoy, so we will get a bottle. Also we need salt fish. I have to tell you it's nothing like salt fish and grits! We plan to cook this over the holiday's. Posting a picture of baby afghan progress.

A Rough Start!

Had a rough start to the star afhgan, but finally got it started and thing are going pretty good. I am only a few rows in but I feel it is coming together. I don't know what happen a few months ago when I could not get the middle of the afghan right. This time I only had to rip it out one time. I had a very nice midweek girls night out. We went to L's Restaurant and Lounge 2316 Randleman Road Greensboro NC. Tonight you could get all you can eat crab legs. It had been a while since I had crab legs and they were great! I think we should get together midweek more often. Posting a picture to the baby afghan I started last night.

Four Day Work Week!

Well two days down and two days to go! I will have a nice long weekend! I have walked on the treadmill today and yesterday it has been made easier due to the fact I have been taking a book to read. I finished reading Crazy Aunt Purl's Home Is Where the Wine Is, by Laurie Perry. It was funny and very interesting. I hate walking on the treadmill. I need to do a little knitting or crochet. My daughter needs an afghan for a friend's baby shower on the 17th of April. I am glad I have a long weekend coming. Updated picture of CeCe the puppy, she will be 7 weeks old on Thursday. One more week with Mom and Dad and it's home with Kendra. The pictures are from last week. The Black dog is Tuck the very proud Dad.

Weekend Out of Town

Friday after work I went to my daughter's and spent the weekend. Friday night we went to Mellow Mushroom for dinner. It was great we had a stuff mushroom appetizer and large pizza with half anchovy mine was the anchovy side. We went back to her apartment talked and watched tv. Saturday morning we got up got dressed went to two places to look at pet supplies, Goodwill, Central Library, and then two yarn shops. Knit Picky and Knit One Smock Two. I brought stitch markers at Knit Picky I brought some very pretty Stitch Markers and at Knit One Smock Two I brought two skeins of Noro Cashmere Island shade 5, Noro Designer Mini Knits, by Jenny Watson, and a pattern by Ann Noring for a Feather & Fan baby afghan. Also went to A C Moore and A great Restaurant Turmeric Indian Restaurant & Bar. The food was great! I had the Curry it was great and it was spicy to me! The bread was great! i would like to go again sometime. The website . After dinner and a trip to a few more stores we went back to her apartment made drinks and watched more tv. Earlier in the day before dinner we watched Twilight. Today we got up got dressed and went to church it was great. My daughter attends Mt. Olive Baptist Church, Rev. Dr C. E. Gray Pastor located at 1301 C.E. Gray Drive Winston Salem, North Carolina website . My Mother and I plan to attend with my Daughter on Easter Sunday. Like I said it was a great weekend and I am trying to hold on to my euphoria! but it is slowly ebbing because I am back at home in Randolph County the City of Asheboro, an getting ready for another work week. Please don't get me wrong I am very happy and I feel well blessed to be getting ready for a work week. I am thankful for the fact each day that I am not escorted out of the building and asked not to come back! The best thing about the week is the office is closed on Friday and I have Monday off too! So I have a nice long weekend to look forward too! No knitting or crochet I hope visiting yarn shops and feeling yarn counts as a fiber and crafting activity. The picture is of a cat found at The Fiber Company A working Studio and fine craft gallery . It is located in Winston-salem's Arts District 600 N. Trade St. . They have wonderful things if you are in the area you should pay a visit. I finished reading How to Knit a Love Song, by Rachael Herron and I hope it is not the last I hope it is a series. The book has a lot of talk about kniting & spinning and at the end of the book you get a pattern for a sweater.
