I meet my daughter at A C Moore today. We went to Costco. I love Costco! The samples were great. To many people but still a great time at Costco. I brought Babybels, Oxiclean, Salmon, and Catfish fillet's. Then the plan was to go to Friendly Shopping Center because my daughter was not finished shopping for her boyfriend and his brother. We had to separate cars and left Costco to meet each other at Friendly. Well I thought we would meet at the Bread Company and my daughter thought we would meet at Macaroni Grill. So we spent an hour looking for each other. So after we found each other we went to Macaroni Grill and it was great. Then to Belk so that my daughter could shop. She found most of the things she wanted for her boyfriend and for his brother and his father. It was a great day. While we s shopped we had a few snow flurries and a great time together. After we separated she went on to do more shopping and I went home. I stopped by Books-a-Million to pick up a book I ordered. Then home Asheboro received a few more flurries than Greensboro. Another 15 dishcloths to for fill my Mother's order. We will see how things go. I am watching A Christmas Carol the Reginald Owen version. My favorite is the Alastair Sims version so far no one on tv has the Alastair Sims version . Still knitting dishcloth's.

Today in North Carolina we had a mix of snow and freezing rain. I live almost in the middle of the state we had a tiny bit of snow and then freezing rain. Today for the first time since I have worked at my agency our office opened on a 2 hour delay! It was a great feeling not to worry about trying to get to work under icy conditions. It has always been the policy at my job to make your on decision about getting to work on time or not coming to work during hazardous weather. Yes only a few inches of snow or sleet is considered hazardous in this part of North Carolina. So today I did not have to worry about all of that and got to work at 10:00 without any trouble. Finished and started another dishcloth today. So I cm still pressing on with the dishcloth thing. I need more Dark Pine(green), and I think that will do it. I have to knit 4 more dishcloth in Mistletoe, and I have 4 balls of Mistletoe. You can get almost 2 dishcloths out of one ball of Sugar n Cream. I found a great pattern for a Christmas tree knit dishcloth pattern on Ravelry yesterday but it is to late to try this pattern this year. So sometime after the year year I plan to give it a shoot. I have plans to meet my Daughter in Greensboro go to Costco and then have lunch. Only 3 days of work next week!

It is cold in North Carolina and tomorrow morning we have a chance for snow, sleet and freezing rain. It is suppose to start before daybreak tomorrow. Still knitting dishcloth's for my Mother and I am glad I still have almost a week to get them done. I don't think she plans to give the dishcloths on Christmas day. This is okay since people visit and give gift until the New Year. I am working a green Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth. I decided to knit all Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth they are quick and easy 12 more to go if I get 3 dishcloths for all 6 people she want to give dishcloths. Brought the Bisquick and Jimmy Dean Hot sausage because it is the Holidays and time for sausage balls! Pick up the Cheese last weekend. I love sausage balls. Only Three days of work next week a vacation day on Thursday, the office is closed on Friday and Monday for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I am trying my best to get as many cases as I can processed by next Wednesday. Let us hope for the best.

Sometimes I wish I could tell people to kiss my natural black ass! It is not nice or polite but sometimes I feel this is something I would like to say. Just needed to get that off my chest. I had to rip out the dishcloth I have been working on for my December dishcloths are us swap partner. I have a backup cloth and I guess I will send it off this weekend. So that I can continue to knit the dishcloths for my Mother. I must admit I am tired and depressed this always happens at this time of the year. I took my car to another shop today and he told me the same thing as the rest $1500.00 to fix my car's problem with the heat and the air. This is to much money for me and I will have to live with the problem. The mechanic did tell me that all I needed to do was stick my hand under something in the car to switch the heat and the air and that's what I will need to do. I don't think my car is worth $1500.00 . This is to much for me to pay to get my car repaired. Never ever have I had this much money in my checking account and I never will. I live hand to mouth. Always have and I always will. Still working on my mothers dishcloths.

Well I finished the dishcloth's for my Sister and told my Mother she needs to cut her order down on her order at the very least to two per person. The day's before Christmas are growing short. We shall see how things go. I am still working on my swap partner's dishcloth plan is to work on the swap partner dishcloth tomorrow and the rest of the week and put on a big push over the weekend to finish the dishcloths for my Mother. I think she will need to settle for two dishcloths per person. We shall see things go. Promise to keep you posted on the dishcloths.

This is not a regular thing in NC winter is still a week away. We have snow flurries. My daughter came by to pick up the fur baby. I am trying to get ready for the week ahead. I am still knitting dishcloths. I have to dishcloths left to knit for my sister. One of the two I have on the needles now. I am watching Bama Belles on TLC. This is a strange show and I am not sure this show represents all southern woman. I was raised in the south and this was not my experience. Have a great week.
