Just A Few Things

My kitchen is now usable and almost complete. The floors go in on Tuesday and I can finally look at it and say wow. The house is back in order, but my back is now out of order. I have been working on the novelty yarn, Cancun, scarf for my sisters boss. Now I know why I didn't knit any more of these after hers. This yarn is a dilly to work with. I am anxious to get started on my bolero with the Serendipitous Ewe yarn. I successfully frogged my pink sweater back to the beginning of the decreases, after making a mistake. Thanks Jane.

The weather has been wonderful, and those cold days are coming fewer and farther apart. Easter should be beautiful. My sister and her family will be coming in.

I am flying out to Minnesota in May for my nieces confirmation. I am really excited. I have not flown in a long time. I spent about half an hour looking at what you can and can't take. I think I will pack my knitting and just take my Kindle on the plane. I will also get to see my sisters new house. I am hoping I get to some local yarn shops, there are quite a few in the Minneapolis, St Paul area.

Weill that is about it.

God Bless

Enjoying An Early Spring Day

My countertops are finally going in. YEA!!!!!! I am sitting in the living room watching the birds and enjoying the day, eventhough it is cloudy. I am slowly working on my shawl, the mitten for my dad, which I think I am going to frog and start over, it is a little big. I am also doing some sewing. I bought three different denims yesterday and I am going to make some skirts. Would you believe this denim says machine wash and line dry.

We are very busy right now, with DD birthday coming up, DS and his fiance moving and getting the kitchen painted and a new floor put in. The kitchen is going to be beautiful, but it is a little nerve wracking.

The birds sing in the morning are my alarm clock, although they want to get up earlier then I like. It is nice to sleep with the windows open once again. I also hear the train at night, which is comforting.

I guess that is all for now. Everybody have a blessed day.
