MOW delivered Ham, mashed potatoes, cabbage and carrots for St. Patrick's Day. I'll enjoy the cookies.LOL
I was torn between whether to wear green for St Patricks day or wearing red for remembering everyone deployed. It was a very hard decision for me today. . . I finally decided. . . I stayed in my P.J.s all day instead. They are turquoise and white striped. I feel so much better not making the decision. . .now I am ready for bed time when it rolls around. LOL!Kate, great job you have done, much better than I could ever do. Happy St. Paddy's day to everyone that celebrates. I wore my green sweater to exercise class today and got more compliments than I even expected. I knitted it a few years ago and those people in the class seemed to be surprised that I knitted it.
I just don't like the word retreat as I never have time to "retreat" and start over. I mostly use advance as it is moving forward with boldness. Your next Birthday celebration will be here sooner than a year.Thank you, but it’s not an ”advance” it’s a ”retreat”(?) as my big birthday was last September. 🤣🤣
Did you say you took a car over it? or you walked over? Bad thing is if you have to come back over it?Looks like a beautiful outing, glad the bridge faeries helped crossing safely.
I wouldn't leave home without them. I have plenty at home also. It never used to be a problem and now it is most always a problem, no matter what I eat.DH finds those work really well too.
Happy Mother's day to you. We don't celebrate until mid May.💐🌹Happy Mothers day to all who are celebrating today 🥀🌺,
its a beautiful day for it in my part of the world , lovely blue skies and a bit of warmth in the air definitely a day to open all the windows and get outside
If I sit for any time, my blood vessels itch. Odd things happen all the time to me. There is no consistency so I figure "no problem" How does one describe things that come and go? You only think about it when it comes. When I am exhausted in late afternoon, I take 2 Tylenol and it often acts like a shot of adrenaline and I don't need to sleep. Amazing how chronic pain catches up with oneself.Fan, me too. Last night I noticed when I was rubbing my ring finger (for whatever reason just watching The White Lotus, season 2) it went kind of tingly. I had that happen once before and I found a deep bruise in that spot. Well, in the night, pain woke me up when I turned and touched the bed with that finger. It looks a little bruised on the top side at the very bottom where it meets the rest of the hand. I remember the other time, it was like a bruised nerve and I got over it after a bit. But this is hanging on today. I can make a fist now, and knit...albeit more slowly....but shoot, I cannot figure out what I did to it. Maybe buy some Epsom salts tomorrow if it is still a bother, and soak it.
Anyone else have odd thing like this?
It looks perfectly pretty to me. Nice job knitting. I love purple any shade or tint.Finished this little set not too thrilled with it as when pressing it, it stretched a lot.
‘And of course the wonky cable stitch lol! View attachment 1287138

Manse here is usually used for the house belonging to the church and where the minister/pastor lives.Just got caught up. Wanted to thank everyone for the comments about the sutures. I passed them on to DH, who is very appreciative. He is looking forward to getting them out and will then start occupational therapy. We’re trying to set up the appointments now.
Sonja, I absolutely could not go across that bridge. But loved seeing a photo! And so nice of you to share your patterns.
Jazzy, That is a very nice shawl. It will surely be a comfort to the person who receives it.
Mindy, Sorry to hear about your brother. Hope he will adjust to the new medicine and you will be able to enjoy your chats. Talking about shared memories might be a comfort to him.
Tami, Have enjoyed hearing about your travels. You are really seeing some interesting places.
Gwen, DH had radiation treatment for prostate cancer and is doing fine so far. Hope your DH will have the same experience.
Maatje, I can’t remember the brand, but I think there is something over the counter you can get to help dogs with gastric upsets. Your vet can tell you, I’m sure. Maybe a change in diet would also help---think there are brands of dog food for dogs with sensitive stomachs.
Strawberry/Sharon, Belated happy birthday! Hope it marks the start of a great year.
Fan, Love the gray outfit with the cute buttons. It looks great!
Pearl’s Girls, Hope things are going as well as possible with your DH. So nice of you to help with the breakfasts.
Kate, Lovely photos of your outing. What a great birthday celebration. I have heard the term "manse" used here.
I’m sure I’ve forgotten some things, but will try to do a better job of keeping up. Oh yes---DD got out the Peter Rabbit jack-in-a-box toy which we gave to DGD for Easter last year. She calls it the “surprise bunny”---which I though was a pretty good description!
That is a nice piece of glass art. Is it blown or cast? That is a nice conversation piece. Your DH was the winner in this gifting. I wouldn't want a taxidermist fish in the house or any other stuffed "thing". . . creepy!The fish -- it's not as bad as I expected and it's NOT a stuffed pike.😅
Are you following paths this time or just hiking trying to see if you don't get lost? David needs to be more considerate and not sit in so much mud. Does he realize that you do all the laundry. LOL Does he help? It must be miserable to have a wet butt and still need to keep going? I guess I am a walker but not a hiker. I do most of my walking inside my house also so don't get too dirty that way. I get dirty by trying to sit in the recliner next to my David's bed, I spill all over myself Good thing that I do all the laundry. I have laundry most everyday. I wish that I had an outside line but, it all goes into the dryer. My house isin the middle of a hill so everything would drag in the dirt if the birds didn't drop berry poop all over them.Well, we are home and thank goodness I put stew in the crockpot to cook, so yummy. We went to Glendo State Park and did a 6 hour hike, we started down at the wetlands area and then hiked up to the rim taking feather rim trail, and then hit rattlesnake to raptor to the bridge and then the walk back down the road to the car. Much better hike than last week, though there was some deep snow in spots, some mud in spots, and some ice in spots, but still much better than last week, David will post a short video of parts of it, I'll post a couple pictures, but I only took a couple. I kept up with David pretty good, he hit the ground 2x on mud, and I hit it once on ice, lol, it was a slow land on my butt/backpack, then I just slid myself down to a flatter spot to get up. 🤣 I got wet, but David got a muddy butt. LOL
Nice pictures. I can enjoy your hike vicariously. I like seeing other parts of our world. Thanks for sharing.I had two more to post but it says they're too large for server, they're the same size as the other 2.
Changed the aspect ratio and it worked. View attachment 1287301
