Beth, you crack me up! Just remind me never to stand down wind of you, though!

Well, DH got sick last night. So he and DS3 are home today. I hope this doesn't run through all of the kids.

Morning ladies - the benefit went well!! We raise almost 3k. and then another 3k in donations of food, paper products auction donations etc. So it was a great night.

Typical family drama - Ugg.

I am beyond burnt out.

I am interested in learning to knit and crochet.
What is good for beginners - for either?

Leona, it doesn't matter. I think it is easier to learn to crochet, but knitting is easier to do. I think if you want to venture into sweaters knitting is a better option. I personally don't like the look of crocheted sweaters. Crochet, IMHO, is better for baby blankets.

Morning dorks!

Leona, I'm so glad the benefit went well. That's great! And, I'm sure you are totally exhausted. You've had a lot going on lately. I know nothing about knitting or crochetting although I have c rochetted a few small things years ago but couldn't do it now, I'm sure.

Oh, Karen, so sorry that dh is now sick. That's just not fun at all. Our school has had the run of it but thankfully I've been spared (knock on wood!) One day last week there were 6 teachers/staff out and on Friday, 2 went home just after school started. Kids out galore. Hope this extra day off for us settles everyone back down.

Just ran 2 miles and walked 2 back home. I LOVE having my mornings to myself. Took me just a tad over an hour. The dog is sacked out in her crate but the weather is just beautiful. Love those nice crips fall mornings...sun shining, leaves crunching, listening to K-LOVE as I walked. Just nice! Now, what do to? what do to? with my day. First--shower, then---stamp! Perfect day!

Peggysue, when does dd have her Fall Break...and Karen, what about your boys??

Chey has a bit of an ear infection I found this morning. That explains the whining she was doing yesterday. Poor baby.

Hope you all had a great weekend. I sure did!

That's how it was when I was in school. There was NO Fall break. But my boys get 3 days off which is nice I guess. But, I don't remember anything but Thankgsiving break when I was a kid...well, in the fall anyway.

Oh, poor Chey. That's just not fun. Tessa has seemed fine in that department so far. Thank goodness she's fine in ONE department! LOL! Now just wait, she'll probably come down with an ear infection soon! Ha!

Joyce, enjoy getting caught up. I have some things to do like that when I get home. Am going to meet a friend that I haven't 'caught up with' in ages for lunch. Looking forward to it!!

find a pattern first. It will tell you what needle and yarn to get. Try a project where gauge doesn't matter (which you've already indicated). Just remember to buy an extra skein incase you knit/crochet loosely. you will then use more yarn than indicated.

Beth, glad you have a day off by yourself. NO fall breaks when I was a kid, either. And Spring break was always around Easter, not earlier. Times are a changin'.

Laurie, so sorry about Chey. Hope she feels better soon.

Joyce, have a nice quiet day doing your desk stuff.

Leona, Karen has great tips! I wouldn't start with the "furry" yarns, like fun fur. They can be hard to work with, IMO. Karen does a LOT more yarn work than I do, so she may have tips for those funky yarns. Have fun!

Just got the last nut order in. Poor little girl took her orders early & then lost the form. They looked everywhere & mom & dd both were in tears. She just found it at the last minute---praise God. dd was ready to quit Girl Scouts if she couldn't find it. Bless her heart. Now they'll close the site & take our orders & in 2 weeks we'll have nuts to deliver. Then I get to collect money & I'm done being the Nut Mom. ha, ha! I guess that is questionable!

Off to do my day.

Hey!! We just got our new fridge and range today! Yippee! They look so nice.

We had to purchase a washer and dryer this weekend as well as the washe wasn't worth repairing. DH spent most of Friday trying to fix it and researching parts. So, we just ended up buying a new set.

Oh Wendy, another unexpected purchase? Or was this all an evil plot on your part to get an entire set of new appliances? You're doing your part personally to support the economy and we all thank you!!!

Joyce I am glad you are having a catch up day. I am just doing a lot of little things that have gotten neglected while we've been traveling or I've been taking my mom around. The house needed a picking up more than anything else, then I can dust, swiffer and vacuum. But things are looking better already and it is soothing to have clear kitchen counters and a bedroom without clutter on the floor!

Lori, don't worry, we'll always think of you fondly as the nut mom, you won't lose that title so easily.

Leona, Karen had good advice about the knitting, I find it very soothing.

No Fall breaks here until Thanksgiving week. When I was a kid we didn't get the whole week off and neither did the older kids when they were in school, but the district changed things and Shania will have that entire week off and regardless of what is happening with the house we are going to go visit Jeff's mom and sister.

Laurie, hope Chey feels better soon. Did you pick a green?

I agree, Leona, do not start with any kind of fuzzy or special yarn. A nice, cheap 100% acrylic yarn (like Red heart) will be the best to start on. They typically run a little over $3.00 a skein.

Hi Girls.


Today went well. I am really feeling the need to have a day of down time during the week.
Leona, glad things went well for the benefit, sorry about the ucky stuff.
Ok, I totally don't remember what I just read, so will pop in tomorrow sometime. Need to read my lesson for Wed class.

TTYL!

I like Garden Green. That's a really nice color. Was it with Cherry Cobbler, did you say?I think maybe you stole Traci's missing package . . .

Hi girls!
I made it in to my parent's just right after mom was taken to the nursing home.
I had my car all loaded up, did a lot the night before, as I had a couple of heavy items and wanted DH to help. Got the trunk full (cooking mixer, cooking odds and ends, Copper and his kennel, suitcase, computer, pillows, etc...) and the car would not start. About to panic when I looked over and saw the extra jeep, that DH had just had snow tires put on over the weekend. Am thanking God right now, even though at the time I wasn't too happy. So got a late start, drove straight through, got here, made a quick dinner, took Dad to see mom at the care center and now early to bed for a 6:00 a.m. hospital check in.
Lori, just letting you know I made it safely. I think all of your prayers today helped. Thank you!

Traci, I'm so glad you are there. I just saw your post on FB & asked if you did make it there! LOL! Hope all goes well in the morning. Glad you had the jeep & that you have internet!

Aunt Flo has come to visit again way too soon (less then 3 weeks). I don't like that. I don't know if this is the real deal or if it's one of those where it takes 2 weeks of off & on to really be here. I do know I have Mt. Kilamanjaro, Mt. Everest & Mt. McKinley all on my chin. Maybe Mt. St. Helens ready to erupt. Yuck!

Night dear friends!

Good morning, Dorkies!

Traci, glad you arrived to your parent's house safely. Whew!

No pukies last night. Yay!

Morning ladies.

Karen, I think the pukies came through the computer screen and hit both our dogs. Have to clean their crates this morning... Don't know if it is the dog food dh switched them to or what... UGH!

Traci, glad you made it safely to your parents.

Everyone have a good day... gotta go break out the hose this morning. ARGGH!

Leona,

Karen's advice is very good. I would also recommend LionsBrand.com. I find a lot of my patterns there. They rate them for difficulty and tell you what yarn they used.

It was awhile since I had done any crocheting and all of Karen's talk of knitting and her pics set me off in a good way. In the last couple of weeks I have crocheted sweater coat, a shell, a shawl, and learned to knit. I knitted a cowl neck warmer, fingerless gloves, and am working on a sweater using circular needles,

I found a yarn shop 30 minutes away which issue so friendly and helpful with all my questions. In fact, tomorrow night I will be in a fashion show with other custofmers. We will be showing off what we have made. I'll post pics after the show.
