One down

I finished the vest. One down 30 to go. But it's better then yesterday when I had about 31 to go.

My latest alien when to live with Lexi. Spent the day with Chris and Lexi. Lexi carried the alien everywhere she went so I left him with her.

I don't have quite so many UFOs now. I'll work on the UFOs and the WIPs more tomorrow.

When I get them all (well, more of them) done, I'll post more photos.

Summer is so wonderful.

Another one

There is another one.

I think I know where they are coming from. I have a mess of UFOs (Un-Finished- Objects.) I think they are coming from them.

Here are just a few of my UFOs.
Maybe when I finish my UFOs the aliens will stop showing up. Probably not. I think they like me.
Anyway this is going to be finish-up week. I'm going to finish Marie's sweater, Pam's sweater, a vest, and the baby afghan I started months ago. Then I'm going to go in the basement and find some of the other UFOs I have down there.

I made some chemo caps over the weekend. I gave them away.

I'm going to work on some scarves this week, too. I want to make a scarf run next week. I have some lovely red, white, and blue yarn that would make very nice scarves.

I'm going to make a few more Barbie gowns, too.

Let's just see how much of this I get to this week. Wish me luck or pray for me. Which ever you believe in.

Love isn't love 'til you give it away. Share. Almost everything is better when you share.

Big guy

I didn't make the big guy. My sister, Letha, did. I love him. Isn't he great?

Life is an adventure. Go with it.

Aliens (again)

Here are the aliens. The big guy is their leader.

I'm getting the hang of the blogging thing. (I hope.)

Alien Invasion

My home has been invaded by little aliens. I don't know what planet they are from. But I know they aren't human. (I've been having alot of fun making them."

The big guy on the right was made by my sister, Letha. I think he is their leader. They seen to spend alot of time together.

Summer has finally come to the Salt Lake Valley. It's 96 today. I love it.

I've been crocheting granny squares for the granny square exchange, African flowers for that exchange, and a bunch of other stuff just for fun. I've made some fun baby booties.

I'm still having problems with adding pictures to this blog. Rachel tried to show me, but I'm a bit dense. I'll have to ask her to show me again.

HEY!!!!! Look what I did. Now if I can just remember what I did.

Back to my crochet hook and fun.

May the warmth of love be always in your life.

I'm home from my visit to Iowa. We had a great trip. Visited with Letha (The little sister.) and her husband and his relatives. Went to see the bridges of Madison County. NEAT. I left my camera at the house. Went shopping. Bought more yarn. Good prices.

Got lost on the way home. Spent an hour getting lost in Iowa and then got lost and found ourselves in Colorado. Missed a turn-off to I-80 and wound up on I-76. 'Bout 20 miles out of the way.

Then...found BAD weather from Iowa to Salt Lake City. SNOW outside of Rocks Springs, Wyoming. Imagine snow in June and almost the middle of June at that.
It was pretty, but not to drive in.

Glad to be home.

Walking 2

I DID IT. I walked the whole 5K. Got a certificate. (Yippeeee)
Both Rachel and Chris were late so I didn't see either of them. OH Well. I talked to alot of the other walkers. I walked with Billy the last part of the race. She had her little dog with her. We were slow, but we weren't last. We talked about all kinds of things. It was like we had been friends for years. Instead of just meeting. At the end she introduced me to her sister. Both very nice ladies.

The weather was lovely.

It's lovely out today, too. It's going to be warm, but by Thursday it's supposed to back to the low 60's. Springtime in the Rockies. I love it.

Hope your day is good.

This afternoon I'll be going for a 5K walk with the Weight Watchers group I meet with on Saturday mornings. Rachel and Chris along with Lexi are coming along. I'm really looking forward to it. Maybe afterward we'll go to lunch. Depends on what the girls have planned.

The weather is perfect for a long walk. Should be great fun.

80 degrees?

Welcome to Springtime in Utah. Two days ago it was 67 degrees, cloudy with 60% chance of rain. And today it's 80 with clouds and humidity.
I do NOT like to sweat.
Tough...Deal with it.

At least the sun is shining.

I made a cute little doll. I finished her this morning.

Someday I'm going to figure out how to put pictures in the body of this blog. These silly computers have always made me feel dumb. But when I get too frustrated I can turn the stupid thing off.

I walked up to the gas station to get my iced tea this morning. It's about 3/4 mile. Takes about 20 minutes.
Anyway...On the way home I was thinking about my father. He passed away 34 years ago, and I still miss him. He had a dry sense of humor. My older sister would cry when he talked to her, because she has NO sense of humor. She thought that he was being mean.

One day I was going on and on about what I wanted in a husband. I was about 15. Daddy just looked at me and asked, "And when you find this man, What is going to want with you?"

At first it seemed mean, but in Daddy's way he was telling me to make something of myself first. He was very wise.

Guess Father's Day coming up triggered that.

MUST get back to my crochet.

I'm working on more scarves, grannies, and Africian Flowers. (And maybe some more babies.)

Sun, Partly Cloudy

Spring may have finally made it to Utah. It sure took it's sweet time.

Russ stayed home from work today. I get nothing done when he's home. What will I do when he retires.

Amanda called to ask if I would come out and braid Eliana's hair for her graduation tomorrow. So I'll be going out there this evening.

Remember you are not crazy...Everyone else is crazy.
