Nothing much here....

Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!~ I hope all is well with you today! Gonna be hot here again today and the humidity is supposed to be pretty high too. As a matter of fact, all this week is supposed to be pretty hot and sticky. I don't want it to get cold too fast, but the Fall temps sure would be nice about now.
Well I haven't done much stitching at all since I have been doing all that knitting. As a matter of fact, these few stitches that I have put into Simple Joys is ALL of the stitching that I have done in the last two weeks ! I couldn't resist putting at least a few stitches into it though. When I get all the knitting done, what how quickly I will let my needle fly again!

Speaking of knitting...... I have some yarn on hand that I will not be needing. There are 6 hanks of Handpaint Originals from The Brown Sheep Yarn Company that I am selling for $60.00 including the shipping.They are 1 3/4 ounces each, and approximately 88 yards to each hank. The blend is 70% mohair and 30% wool. The colors are much prettier in real life. Let me know if you are interested. I am not using Paypal for this and due to that I will only be taking a US money order or personal check (held until it clears) and I cannot let it go to a non-US address . Sorry.

I'm not meeting with my little student this week. She is going out of state to spend a week and a half with her grandparents.That should be a lot of fun for her. I will be spending that time away from her , still knitting I'm sure! LOL!


Last night I had a hard time sleeping. It was humid and still 86 degrees with the heat index at 10pm. About 1:30 am, I woke up and I kept feeling like my right eye would not open all the way. I went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror and seen that my eye was swollen up. I thought it would probably go down during the night and now I see this morning it's the same if not a little bigger. I'm now thinking I must have somehow gotten poison ivy in it again. This happened to me a few years ago on a fishing trip and I would up having to go to the doctor and be put on steroids. So , I will keep ice on it today and if it doesn't go down, I guess it's back to the doctor! Ugh!


Well I finally turned on the "blog owner approval" for the comments. I was so tired of those pesky spammers trying to get me , and my readers and friends as well, to look at porn. So bare with me, I've not too computer savvy so, if something went wrong, just send me an email and I'll see what I can do.

I hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by and for all of the wonderful comments. I appreciate them so much! Do come back again soon!

'til next time,

don't be a stranger,

  4. Ohhh nooo I hope you get some relief for yoour eye, So what have you been knitting?? Simple Joys looks nice for the small amount you have been stitching on it.

    I hope you do not melt in that heat. I was in Ohio last week and only two days were humid beyound nelief the rest of the time it was 82- 87 perfect weather.

  5. Great start on Simple Joys! I started mine last week and it still seems like I've only stitched a little. Will need to take a photo soon to post. I'd love to see what you're knitting too.

    Sorry to hear about your eye...hope the swelling goes down...

  6. Poison Ivy!!! Yikes, especially in your eye, you poor thing. I do hope it's just allergies and not poison ivy. Wishing you a quick recovery, how will you ever see to do your stitching??? At any rate, I love that Simple Joy pattern and the purples are fabulous. Hope you are enjoying your summer even though it's so dang hot out there!!! Smiles...

  7. Poison Ivy in your eye? That does not sound good.
