I'm spending the day frogging.
I crocheted a "sweater", that looked more like a king-size blanket.

It's from a new book I picked up while at Gardner Village last week. It's Crochet Wear, by Ann Regis. I really liked the look of this sweater, but mine just didn't turn out like it. I worked on it all weekend.

But now...

I love this yarn. I picked it up at Joann's awhile back. It's on sale right now. Anyway... It's big enough for a small elephant. Soooo. It's frogging time.

My darling husband said that I could leave it and wear it like an afghan when it gets cold this winter. I looked at it this morning and decided that I would never use it that way.

It will probably take me all day to frog it.

The weather is changing. Today is going to be beautiful and warm, but by Saturday we get storms and colder. By Thursday we may get sn--. I am NOT ready for Winter and the "S" word.

Remember...Even if you are against the war, Support our troops. They are young men and women who are doing what their country asks.

I was just thinking...
I didn't even leave the house today. Dull does NOT describe my day. I even turned off the television.
I'm listening to Classical Music on KBYU radio.
I got my granny squares ready to send off. They'll be going out tomorrow.

EEEEEKKK!!! The news! On the stupid radio. Must turn it off.

I have crocheted a little today. I can hardly wait for the Bernat Blog about the Mystery Afghan Crochet Along tomorrow. I'm making two of them just for fun. I'll probably give them away when I get them finished.

Looked at the blogs I'm following today. Everyone is so busy and creative. I love to see what the rest of the crochet world is up to. There are so many creative people in the world.

Have you ever thought about how lucky we are? There is so much beauty in our world.

Happy October

This is a lazy day.

Today is the first of October. Sunny and warm here in Utah. But the weatherman says it isn't going to last.

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So wear Pink whenever you can.I'd like to thank all my friends (including my kids and my sister) for hanging with me through all the stuff over the years. Without you my like would be so empty.

Must tell you of my little granddaughter, Lexi.

The other night Chris hear a noise after putting Lexi to bed. Chris opened the door to check on her. Lexi was standing on her chair in the center of her room naked, shinning her dinosaur flashlight on the ceiling and growling.

Chris asked, "What are you doing?"

Lexi said, "monsters, Mom"

"Ok, why?"

"Day scared. I show dem my light."

"Where are your clothes?"

"Me diaper wet, so I throw it in the corner." and pointed to it.

"Where are you pajamas?"

"Over dare." and pointed to another corner.

"Get down and put the flashlight away."

"Mom, monsters scared. I show dem my light."

"Do you want to go to be in your birthday suit?"

"Me not wear suit. Me naked."

"Ok, let's put another diaper and new pajamas on."


So Lexi got down and they got her into her pajamas. But she didn't want to put down the flashlight. After all the Monsters were scared. So Chris told her she could keep the flashlight and hold it to shine it for the monsters.

Lexi snuggled down into the bed. And Chris didn't hear from her again until morning.

There is just no arguing with a two-year-old.
My sister made this monster. We tell Lexi that these monsters won't hurt her.

Lexi is a fun kid.
And I do not spoil that child.

Chris called me to tell me this story the day after. We had a good laugh over this story.

I'm so glad I have these people in my life.

The more you love, the more you can love.
