Summer Time and The Living Is Easy?

The weather just makes you want to stay inside and knit. That is exactly what I have been doing. My tropical tee had a tiny set back. I didn't like where I had joined a new piece of yarn (I had to because I ran into a knot, and a few more after that), so I put in a life line and ripped back. It looks much better now and I know I did the right thing.

This no driving thing is getting to me. No matter what I want to do I have to rely on someone else. My daughter and husband have been wonderful. Louise you have been a true gem, I would be going mad by now it not for our little adventures.

I look forward to the cool bright days of autumn. I want to wear some of my sweaters that I plan to finish soon.

A rainy day would be nice not only for staying inside but our lawn could use the drink.

Life is what you make it, so be joyful and thank God for all you have.

Sunny Day

The sun has come out and I believe it is not quite as hot as before. This is only a brief reprieve it is suppose to be 90 degrees and above by Sunday. I am getting out today. Louise and I are going to dinner and then knitting at Eleganza, Yippy, Hurray!!! (You think maybe I am going a little stir crazy).

I am progressing on my Tropical Tee. I hope to get some help this evening on the Lacy pattern shrug. It is really pretty but the pattern is a little confusing, I have started it 5 times now and still can't get the ending right.

We are having the bridal shower for Dawn this Sunday. I have to make up the bouquets, but mostly everything is coming along nicely.

If I only could drive, Darby likes it because he says I am not spending money, did he forget the internet (haHa). Sometimes I just want to get out of the house, not spend money.

I guess that is all for today. I hope to get out and get some new pictures of flowers in my garden, so you will see them next time.

Today is is sunny and very hot. We have finally gotten the summer weather we thought we would never get this summer. Well the Doctor says he does not see any healing of the bone yet, but that is not unusual, there is such a large area to heal. Each time I go to him I learn more. This type of break is very bad, but at the same time very good. There is more surface to heal and let the blood flow get to it. He also told me that it is also the most painful break, Duh, I could tell him that.

Enough about me. I am progressing on my Tropical Tee, slow and steady wins the race. I also am starting on the Lacy Shrug from the Nashua Vacation booklet. It is beautiful, but I have had to rip it out four times now. I did finally find the Irrata on it, which explained a lot, but I am having problems making it come out right at the end. I think I need to talk to Kristi about it.

I am going on a Cruise around Ireland, Scotland and England, that leaves from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, next August. Louise (Roadweaver) told me about it and we are going together along with Teante and maybe Brian her husband, and maybe my daughter Catherine.

Life is good and this whole thing with my arm is teaching me patience. It reminds me of a "prayer", God please give me patience and hurry up with it.
