Back in the Saddle Again-2008

Sort of.....Elena's back in school and today was vacuum, sweep, laundry, towels, bathrooms and sheet day-but the physical part is done and now the machines (washer and dryer are doing their jobs).

I haven't crocheted or done anything since before Christmas, shocking, I know. I will pull the ghan down later, but have decided to give Bron's Easy Victorian Shell Mitts a whirl. Since she made another pair using acrylic, I will probably do the same, using Simply Soft, which may be too soft, but it matches my coat dammit! That may get me in the mood for crocheting a bit. Also, Mandi posted a link for Interweave's "Hot Cross Slouch Beret" and I'll probably make that too (if I can find where I put the mag) to go with the mitts-

I still wanna make Pam's Fuchsia and Blues Jacket, but still haven't figured out a comparable yarn-anyone yet?

Thanks for all the advice on the MP3 player-I bought a USB hub last night and it's charging now-yeah, that's as far as I got with it since Christmas.

I decided to name my stone "Crystal"-why? Because anything that hurts that much and comes out of those nether regions should be named-period. I have to drop her off to be analyzed and will see the urologist in February (since she's out, no rush I guess). Some diet talk, some CT, you know, same old, same old. Predisposed now and yes, I did have appointments before and canceled them, but I'll follow through this time, I will, really.

Michael was sworn in as committeeman yesterday. It went well and there was a great community turn out for the ceremony, surprising, since it was just a swearing in thing. Elena was nervous about having to stand there, etc, but it went fine.

All for today...maybe I'll have some Mitts to post tomorrow.

Wow - you three look fabulous. Hmmm...can the White House be far behind? ;)

Mimi said...

You all look wonderful :)

Sara said...

Congrats! You have a wonderful family.

You guys look great at the swearing in!

Glad you're feeling better. The urologist told Mark after his kidney stone surgery that 3 things would help prevent them in the future (he's had them twice in 4 years so he's prone): lots of citrus (he now drinks lemonade like it's going out of style), reduce his sodium intake (impossible so I secretly switched him to fake sodium free stuff), and reduce his caffeine intake/replace with water. It's got to be frustrating to have yet *another* thing added to the diet dos and don'ts I'm sure, but maybe it will help you, too. The doctor kept emphasizing that if you're not peeing clear you're not drinking enough and the stones could come back.

Bron's mitts are adorable. I can't wait to see yours!
