Yarn Heaven

Yesterday day after a very long day at work I came home to Yarn Heaven! I pulled into my driveway and a package from Knit Picks was sitting on my doorstep. I could not wait to open the box. I told you in previous post that on Ravelry I particiapated in a contest to see who would be the next Foodnetwork Star. The contestant that was assigned to me won and out of my group I received the prizes. Yarncandie and Straightneedles gave my giftcard's to KnitPicks so I was able to order yarn from KnitPicks. It was my first time ordering and of course I ordered more that the gift card amounts. It was all good because I used the gift card and then paid for the other half of the order. I am posting a picture of the yarn. I am not sure what projects I will use the yarn on at this time. I am happy to have great yarn to add to my stash. I finished reading God Ain't Through Yet, by Mary Monroe and picked up Getting To Happy, by Terry Mcmillan at my local Library. I enjoyed God Ain't Through Yet it is laugh out loud funny. Getting To Happy is the long awaited sequel to Waiting To Exhale. So far so good and I am sure I will enjoy the book. Terry McMillan is one of my favorite Author's. I hope she will continue to produce great novels. It is the weekend and I plan to read and try to finish a few knitting projects.

My Last Day Off!

Well today mark's my last day off and it is back to work tomorrow. If this had been a work day it would still be 10:00 am and my phone would be ringing off the hook! I love and need my job so don't get me wrong, and am thankful that I have a job to get up and go to tomorrow. It is just I like doing nothing better than I do working. I spent the day watching tv and reading. I finished reading God Ain't Through Yet, by Mary Monroe it was a great read and I enjoyed the book. It was laugh out loud funny in several places through out the book. I hope this is not the last in the series! I paid a visit to the Library to find a new book to read. Both of the books I really wanted to read I had to place on hold. One by Michelle Bowen and the second by Terry McMillan. I hope the wait is not to long. They are not knitting or crochet related! I checked out The first book in the Abram's Daughter's Series, by Beverly Lewis, The Covenant and 2 by Lawana Blackwell the Tales of London Series . I am trying to decide which to read first. I knit a few rows on a scarf I've been working on for a longtime now. I am ready for the weekend. I need to get started on a new crochet or knit project. Posting a random picture tonight. Yesterday my daughter and I watched the movie The Time Traveler's Wife, I am not sure I liked the movie, maybe I should read the book so I can understand it more. It was a little to weird for me. I know that a movie can't give all the details that the book will give. I will have to think about this and maybe give the book a try.

My Long Weekend!

Well on Thursday night my long weekend started. On Friday I got up lazed around and made my way to the Library. Went to the library to get direction to Evelen Arces Flea Market it is located at 825 Julian Ave, Thomasville NC 336-472-0244. Paid a visit to Walgreens and I hate going to Walgreens, to pick up a prescription for my Mother. I arrived at Walgreens around 10:06 I pulled up to the drive through and I waited and I waited for some one to come to the window to see me. I watched a worker count money right in front of the drive through window help a few customers in the store but she did not acknowledge me, a worker walked past the window at least two times and did not turn my way. I know someone in side the pharmacy knew I was waiting . I have been inside Walgreens and visited the Pharmacy and I know you can see car's that pull up from inside the pharmacy. As I was stating I pulled in at 10:06 and after I rang a service bell it was almost 10:15 before anyone came to the window and asked me if I was picking up or dropping off a prescription. To top it off after this and the fact that the prescription was ready they could not find my mother prescription. So to make a long story shot it took over 30 minutes to get a prescription that was suppose to be ready for pick up. I was more upset about the fact that I had to wait nearly 15 minutes before anyone approached the window than I was about not being able to find the window. My daughter and my fur grand baby arrived Friday evening and on Saturday we got up and traveled to Thomasville for the flea market. It was great if I wanted to I could have brought a pig, turkey,duck, or chicken. They had lots of vegetables and we brought greens, corn, eggplant, fresh fish. If I knew how to cook blue crab I would have brought some. I am fur baby sitting this weekend. I finished reading Knit in Comfort, by Isabel Sharpe, it was a great easy read and I enjoyed the read. On Friday during my trip to the library I checked out God Ain't through Yet, by Mary Monroe. It is a great read and it is not Crochet or Knit related! Worked a few row of the lasted magic scarf by crazy aunt purl. The best thing about my long weekend is returning to work on Wednesday!!! Posting a picture of Cece she has grow a lot.
