So weird..

The socks are exactly the same size but it must have been the angle of the camera that made them seem different.. Measure to measure they are exactly the same.

Nothing as glamourous as Bonnie's afghan.. but it's what I do..

Used leftover yarns.. itty bitty bits ...

Nina, the little socks are adorable. I have tons of small balls I have saved to do a sock yarn blankie one day... I may as well knit little socks with them. So how many pairs of socks does this little fella have now?

I made up some crab cakes for our dinner tonight. Just found "Maryland Crab Cakes" online and it was a good recipe. Plenty left for tomorrow, too. Hallelujah.

Charles and I watched a really good movie tonight. It's called "Here Comes the Boom" with Kevin James and Henry Winkler. I highly recommend it. It's clean and fun and very inspiring. I wish there were more movies like that! You can get it at a Red Box.

I also picked up "Identity Thief". We'll watch that tomorrow night.

Goodnight ladies~!

I enjoyed Identity Thief it is just a bit of fun but you can't take your eyes off Melissa McCarthy although there is a very naughty bit in it! So be warned.

So I got the dish washer cleaned out then ended up going out to look at some lounge room furniture but not after having to go to another car yard!!

I got spoilt tonight Hubby cooked Roast pork , Roast potatoes and Roast pumpkin with snow peas, Apple sauce and gravy. Can't forget the crackling(bad for you but tastes so good!!). Then I watched Letters to Juliet, It was a lovely feel good movie!

Good morning!

Tracy, Is Letters to Juliet a recent movie or an oldie? Haven't heard of it before.

Melissa McCarthy is so cute... thanks for the warning about the naughty bit!

Glad you finally got away from the car lots! LOL.

I'm off in a bit to one class at the gym. Not sure what I will do with the rest of this beautiful day. Luke is meeting up with a friend and going into D.C. today, to see the sights on his last day up there.... Seth is planning an elaborate day for his best friend today, culminating with a huge surprise birthday party this evening. And I'm counting down 2.5 weeks until Audrey and Danny are here. I'd better get used to cooking more food!

I'm trying not to notice that my house needs to be vacuumed.

Later, Chicks...

Tracy, in the USA we call those movies, Chick Flicks!!! but aren't you lucky Matt cooked!! Kal says he can cook, but he can't really...lol..

I only made one pair so far of baby socks.. but he got (at his shower) a bunch of machine socks that look like shoes, sneakers, flip flops.. etc.. but so far he only has one pair of handknit.. It takes seconds (well, you know what I mean!!) to make them and you don't need fancy stitches since there really is no room for them.. I learned three new techniques doing them..

Judy's magic cast on, sweet tomato heel, and invisible (tubular) bind off. So I liked that.. funny that I caught on to the tubular bind off faster than I did the kitchener stitch..

I was thinking of making a bunch of socks like that everytime it comes along (meaning leftover bits of yarn)and if I end up with no baby or toddler to give them too.. I would donate them.. I told you about the woman on the ship (she was the hostess, worked on the ship) she adopted a school in Africa and supplies them, she saw me making socks and said they need socks cause they use them and only get one pair if they are lucky..so that's on my agenda at some point.

Poor Mel, she is so ready to pop.. but the little guy seems so comfortable, he doesn't seem to want to come meet the rest of us yet.. Her due date is next Saturday and if she doesn't have him by then, the dr said they will induce her the week after.. and she is "nesting" I vacuumed (bagged) a batch of quilts and extra pillows she had stockpiled in the guest room..but she doesn't have much room to store things.. (well she does but it's all full!)

I think I can watch the movie on Xfinity.. I think I saw it.. so maybe this afternoon I will.

OSG, you got to get your act together with that hat!!! :) or you'll make yourself nuts!!! But the burgers were genius.. they love them and they are quick!! Especially if you have someone else man the BBQ!!!!

Well, breakfast time... see ya later

Good morning! The movie was made in 2010 so fairly recent. It is set in Italy the scenery is just beautiful!
Yes I escaped the car yards and got to the furniture store. Saw a coffee table side tables an tv unit that we liked lucky we have the same taste in funiture so no arguements there!! We need to check the measurements.
Matt cooked it all in the bbq, but still managed to make a mess in the kitchen. But he washed up so its all good!
I hope the bub arrives soon, being overdue is no fun.
