Well I got a namaste bag off ebay. Hollywood pink , Executive , love it but it didn't love me back. One of the handles came undone. Now do I return it , glue it or sew it to fix it?
I wrote the seller will see tomorrow.

I have two pairs of glasses coming in the mail. Will post them as soon as i get them.

Walked Mack this am did yoga this pm. Putting the day to bed.

It seems every other thing on this computer has my attention but my own blog and thoughts.

I am kid free, man free with aunt flo and dogs for company this am. I am going to help do yard work at friends house after 10 . I am bringing rice a roni and veggies for lunch and my yarn bag . Must not forget change of clothes !

Glasses have been broke in middle and have had odd time with glue bottle getting them together. New pair still in processing not shipping mode.

Having friends has been a scary thing but I am so glad I took the plunge . At times I still feel like a dog that has not been properly socialized at a public dog park !

yellow top

this is the new yellow top I am working on. The back is lots of knit 2 purl 2 for a whopping 81 rows ! Oh yes fun , fun. The good thing about it though is how it settles ones mind. I can really feel myself unwind as I knit this.
Below is the new project bag I made to for it all to go in. This was a tank top found at a thrift store. I just loved the black trim and it covers a horrible gray stain that was on it when I bought it.

I have picasa 3 for my photos now. A new adventure in getting creative!

A commitment to Dad

My dad wants to ride his bicycle everyday . So that means I will be calling him everyday. As kids grow , your parents grow with their own lives. Some talk everyday while others go months without a work to each other. I didn't plan on being the kid that could go months without contact. I know I did not grow up thinking I would be distant from my parents . Life just happened . I started this year with a commitment to myself to understand my reality. To know me is to know , reality for me in the past was a word in the dictionary!

I just got off the phone with him. He is on a mission to get the other deer twin that was just born a few days ago. They take the baby deer early , so they can be bottle fed growing up tame and petable. He will be trying to get the baby before the mom hides it. She has caught on to what my parents do when they come into the deer pen.
I have not done my walk , I'm sure he will call later . I will be talking to him like never before.

This is when size does matter. I only want 4 inches not six. Well I am going to move forward with this very simple tank top in the most bumpy yarn noro has ever produced on size ones . I love the multi colours and the texture is okay , no braless wearing with this one !

I made deviled eggs yesterday for stamp club , with equal parts butter and mayonnaise and fresh herbs . They were good , recipe is from Julia Child cookbook of wisdom tips.

I have a busy day at work.
I am hoping to have the energy afterwords to walk a 5 mile walk with Lynn and Robbie .
I guess I better go get some support hose on!

I have a project finished. This is me talking ! Imagine that . Jeffery took the picture. It is the top for Kristen's graduation . Now to figure out what to cover my ass with .
It is the second day of June. I have a whole list of what I want to get done this month.
Blog daily
water 100 oz at least
read the Secret at 5 pages a day
being on time to work is ongoing but not at the top of the list.
keep the house decluttered. It rubs me to have someone notice how clean my computer desk is. Not that i don't like it , I do but it is boring but will be easy to dust and Dale might notice and smile about it . That it is his desire to have an uncluttered house that had me do it . Oh and that I got a new computer ! I have very good friends , they see so much good in me and point it out . I need that since my husband is oh so good at pointing out the bad.

Putting beads on yarn first depends on how strong your yarn is. The top is made from cotton so it could handle 30 beads or so at a time being pulled along.

Time to finish something or start something new. KIP is coming up . I kinda want something new for it. I have a simple knit top that I will start the swatch on today. Yes I swatch.

knit ya later

So the dress arrives

The reasoning for the dress to have been late was blamed on the volcano ! Oh well. I made my own dress to where and celebrate the uniting of Jay and Spencer.That is the purse I made to go with my dress. The part of the dress pics that turned out was a wee bit short for posting . The top part without the skirt ....
This is the purse I made for Spencer to keep her girly stuff in for the wedding.
I got some knitting done on the pink top . This is the second time I am have been monogamous to my knitting.Am trying to get photo of the happy couple but computer not cooperating.Well i guess that picture comes up another time. The wedding was lovely. Lots of pictures showing up on face book. Even dancing to Saturday nite fever music. The day will stay with me for a long time , their love for eachother is so refreshing .

No Dress

I have no dress at the moment. I am sad . I will not be a part of Spencers wedding tomorrow. I walked three miles, paid my last car payment and had an efficient day at work. Good huh ? Should be okay with the minor flaw of not being beautiful side piece for Spencer . Well it sucks. My lack of planning ,of paying early on the dress. I want out of this hole i'm in in my life . I know stop digging .

Wedding and procrastination

I have really messed up . By not ordering my brides maid dress as early as I could have , I might not be in Spencers wedding. It's times like this I see how much of a grown up I am not . That makes me sad.
On a happy note I was amazed at the variety of bras wall-mart on 220 has . I've never seen so many . animal print , cartoon print , lace , solid , lace with matching panties !
If my dress gets here tomorrow, I will be heading back to 220 for some of the goodies I saw tonight , then to 103 for the slip the scanner said they had hide the garter I'm eager to wear.

10 inchs - really ?

I was going on along , singing a song , knitting away between my tasks at work. Yes , it was a sorta slow day, all my stuff was done honest ..... Okay back to my rant. There was a knot . Not usually a problem , except for the 10 inches of beads before the knot . What to do? Well at least these green beads fit on the yarn. Spencer said there is such a thing as a bead reamer for those naughty beads ! Who knew ? and why didn't they tell me . Oh ya she did tell me tonight when she heard about the naughty ones.

Green beads

Why is it that the green beads , don't have the same size holes as the other beads? I am putting pink, light pink , yellow and green beads on my pink yarn . For the pink top, by Kristin Omadahl, Lacy Ribbed Top from Creative Knitting July 2009. I have a handful of green ones that are going into something else .
I am loving this weather we are having. I walked two miles today . Realized I misplaced my debit card , reporting it to the bank girl, I had her laughing cause I don't have any checks either ! What a novel way to save money ....

Today is a cloudy day . Rain sure to come . The back yard is actually not in need of mowing but there are several holes to fill . Later I get to go to my first Roller Derby event. It is Spencer's bachlorette party. Knit Kim and I have a few surprises for her . I'll post the sayings tomorrow. I can't post any pictures , the Gateway computer I have can only update to service pack two with windows. Somehow I downloaded a counterfeit update ! It's not my fault someone put out there xp pro !
Funny how you start to expect all your keyboards to have the same features , like holding the key down and expecting it to go capital , like it does on your phone.
It is time for that second cup of coffee , so days just start out that way. Pandora is so awesome.
Kimber gave me my socks yesterday , they are so lovely. Well I'm off to figure out what to where with my special t-shirt ! I would love to have running shorts with the white boarder and stripe knee high socks but I can't find Fergie's phone number !
