Bus trip

We took a bus trip with the MN club to see the MN Twins play ball. It was a great day!

We sat in the shade. Watched the Twins beat the Bluejays.

On the bus and in the stands I did a little mindless knitting. Thought since I never make it to any of the official stitch and pitch events I should make the most of it.

I'm sure the people sitting next to us thought I was a little odd. My DH just ignored it.

Delayed St. Pats

Just getting around to uploading pictures from my phone to a computer that works with getting them to my blog. I know there is no doubt away to send them from my phone to flickr and get them here. But my experiences with using flickr to get photos anywhere have been unsuccessful.
St. Pat's here in T.V. is a big deal. There are parades, parties and much fun. This is me and "c-Note" a member of the clown club.

Coming off a great weekend.

Spent Thursday - Sunday with friend. I played in her two day guest golf event. We took 3rd in our flight, which we thought was a great finish. If we'd golfed any better Aeolus have had to be in a shoot off with the top team in each bracket. With everyone watching! I think it would have been hard to golf while throwing up out of nervousness. So we took our 25 prize gift certificate and left happy. Bargin shopper that I am I used the money towards a shirt on clearance in the club shop.

When we weren't golfing we had a nice times visiting with our friends. I also managed to get going on another pair of short sox from stash yarn. Green cotton blend. On the. Drive I fit thorough the heel and guesset and started on the foot.

Last night watching dvr'd episodes of in plain sight I picked up the stitches for the sleeve of my summer knit tee. Hope to finish it up this week. I will post pic's of everything soon.

Life in the guest lane

We've had very little company to our FL home this year. This week we had friends from up north, this weekend we will be guest somewhere else, and then another round of northern visitors. Luckily he weather has cooperated.

Today is a break so a good day for catch up. You know the exciting things, disha, laundry, a quick trip to target. And maybe a little knitting..

I finished my hitchhiker scarf/shawlette. It will be headed north to my charity knitting group. Fun easy pattern, would recommend it. Finished the bottom ribbing and started binding off on the summer sweater for me. Then on to the sleeves.

Pictures to follow. Then I have to get back to the ta ta's. I truly admire the knitters who have made many of these knit breast prosthetics. I just can not get inspired to work on them.

Rice is nice

The phone seems to work.


Normally my oops here would be about a dropped stitch and a frogged project. Unfortunately my latest oops is that in the course of gesturing while talking I managed to tip my full glass of Cabernet across a table. And it was my first glass so can't even blame it on anything. Good news missed our friends light khaki shorts. Bad news hit dh new iPhone. Think it will be ok. He grabbed it ASAP. But it's beed sitting in a bag if rice to absorb any residual mositure. when he dropped his last phones into the lake, yep happened more then once, we opened them up and let the components dry. The iPhone doesn't open.😰 so cross yor finger while we hope for the best.

It has been terribly windy here the past days with more to come. I know if you've been shoveling snow that doesn't sound like much, but it has been the horrible. Like house falling on a witch kind of wind. So I think today will be a stay indoors, watch Netflix movies.
