I have a big box of yarn from a friend in New Zealand. This is fresh off the sheep with the the natural oils in it. What is the best item to crochet with this yarn? I've been told sweaters. If so, does anyone have a good crochet pattern I can use this yarn for? Thanks a bunch from Georgia.
Not aware if you know this.........so posting just in case.... http://www.ebay.com/gds/How-to-Care-for-Wool-/10000000177318585/g.html
I made this soup today. I loved it, DH says it is too hot! I used the Mild Italian sausage instead of the hot. I'll be taking the leftovers for lunch at work. Very tasty and filling. Thank you
Thank for the report back on the soup Liz.

Bravo! Good on you Juleen. Loved your story too!
This link will get you a free packet of seeds to plant to "feed the bees"!

Wow, you have some very serious gardens to look af... (
I don't know about "serious gardens"... but they are "mine" and I am serious about having them. They are my therapy for sure. Neither my husband OR I drink OR smoke, we never go out to the theatre or spend money on any type of entertainment, our kids and their kids...don't talk so we save money there too! Soooooooooo I spend my money when I want .....in places I WANT!
That is another reason we do up Halloween so big....Plus the fact we collect food for the food bank on that night.
We live very simply....still working 5-6 days per week too. "Idle hands easily find trouble"...is something my Mother used to say. I should reach "saint-hood" any day now!......roflmao.....snicker
Have a great day......got time for 1 more coffee before we leave for work.
WOW! Your garden will be beautiful! I hope you will post some pics wgen it is in full bloom. I have a question --- did all your Canada 150 red and white tulips "come up" red and white? The reason I'm asking is that I had half of the ones planted come up yellow with red. Apparently Home Hardware has has quite a few complaints about the problem.
I get it Bonnie.....mine were purchased for me by a client...hers' "suck"/imho and so do mine...were white mostly with very little red!
I learned years ago...that IF ya want quality flowers..it cost megs bucks to get them!
My annuals cost me just under $1700.00 ...(YES! Seventeen hundred dollars this year).
BUT they are breath-taking!
I have 1 bed 65 feet long and 5 feet wide; another 55 feet long and 5 feet wide; and a third one about 80 foot long & 5 feet wide and then I have at least 40 pots around the 1/4 acre plus a few window boxes. and then beds along both the east and west side up against the house, plus across the front of the house and around the rear veranda.
"Pleasure" to weed........for sure!.....lololol
.......planting season is over, the decks I power wash for people every Spring are finished and I also have 2 very "tedious" painting jobs to work in as well.
All of the above has got to be fit into my schedule "considering the lack of consideration that my regular paying job demands my time" 5-6 days a week!......lolol.
Thank goodness the clients that we do windows for are all done but for 1 that we'll do on Sat. May 27.
I will try to pop in from time to time.
See ya'll later!
Just made this and it is incredible! Now to make a peach version next!
Thanks for the comment Leslie!
Senior Wedding at the Villages, Florida
Two very active seniors (Jacob, age 92, and Mary, age 89), living in The Villages, are all excited about their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding, and on the way they pass a drugstore. Jacob suggests they go in.
Jacob addresses the man behind the counter: Are you the owner?"
The pharmacist answers, "Yes."
Jacob: "We're about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?"
Pharmacist: "Of course we do."
Jacob: "How about medicine for circulation?"
Pharmacist: "All kinds."
Jacob: "Medicine for rheumatism?"
Jacob: "How about suppositories and medicine for impotence?"
Pharmacist: "You bet!"
Jacob: "Medicine for memory problems, arthritis and Alzheimer's?"
Pharmacist: "Yes, a large variety. The works."
Jacob: "What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinson's disease?"
Jacob: "Everything for heartburn and indigestion?"
Pharmacist: "We sure do."
Jacob: "You sell wheelchairs and walkers and canes?"
Pharmacist: "All speeds and sizes."
Jacob: "Adult diapers?"
Pharmacist: "Sure, how can I help you?
Jacob: "We'd like to use this store as our Bridal Registry."
