General Update

Okay, first order of business.

Thank you all for the kind wishes and the sympathy poured out for my last two entries. This has been an especially difficult time for all of us and your well wishes have meant so much.

Okay, on to the fun stuff. This weekend was wonderful!

I met Knitted and Purled and we went for breakfast at the Daily Grind. It was fab! From there, we drove to tin-buck-two (as far as loop people are concerned) to Yarntopia for CAP!

The shop is FAB! I have not been a suburbanite for many years but I could fall in love with this shop! It is well lit and laid out well and the yarn selection is delicious.

CAP was gracious and even told personal stories. Yes, I did get an autographed book. I also won a door prize.

I also was forced, yes forced to buy this wonderful yarn called EarthFaire from Mama Llama.


It is so wonderful all that I can do at the moment is pet it like the Harlot told us to do. I am thinking that it would make a wonderful shawl, but, alas, I do not have a good pattern, so any one that wants to suggest one, please, by all means, step up.

On a side note, Wifey is back from Rochester. It is good to have her home and I hope that our lives can return to our normal levels as soon as possible. We will be celebrating our 10th anniversary in about seven weeks. I also just went for my follow up with the OB/GYN and I have officially lost 12 pounds according to his scales. My home scales say 14 pounds, so I'm happy. I am holding my breath to see if the diet, exercise and Lipitor have lowered the cholesterol enough to make everyone happy. I want to be around a very, very, very long time.

More later Monday, as I have alot to catch you all up on. I hope that you all had peaceful and restful weekends!
