|Welcome to my world........ sometimes referred to as "Cathy-Land"...... this is a land where, Easter is NOT in 3 days, giving the Queen of Cathy-Land ~ me ;) ~ some much needed extra time to do the simple things in life, such as shop, bake, clean the house, cook, put together Easter Baskets, color eggs, BUY white eggs if I can even find them now, make birthday cake... etc., etc., etc. Alas, the evil minions that invade Cathy-Land have come again and RUINED it, leaving nothing but panic and chaos in their wake - THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TIME! aaaaaaaaaack! But in the immortal words of Scarlett O'Hara, "I won't think about that right now".....|
Before I get onto my knitting news (yes I AM back in Cathy-Land for a brief time) - I would like to THANK all of you that commented on my last post - not only were the comments very sweet, kind, supportive and very much appreciated - but there were 12 comments (I know this doesn't sound like much to those of you that always get a TON of comments, but to me it was AWESOME, and yes I will count Mia's twice :))! Thank you SO MUCH!
On to knitting news, since I put my tail bone out last Friday, I tried to take it a little bit easy this past weekend, so on Sunday while sitting with the sick, depressed child (who is much better now, thank you all) who couldn't go to her softball pizza, team bonding, party, I made these little lovelies. Basic baby socks ~ easy as pie ~ instant gratification ~ LOVE IT. I have been using thisvery heavy marble egg (is this a project spectrum color?) to tighten up and even out my Kitchener stitches on the toes and finally broke down and purchased thislovely - - now the rationality behind all of this is that it is Easter, and everyone needs a new egg at Easter time.... no? ;) It's gorgeous, beautifully made and arrived here in no time Priority Mail! YAY
We bought Prom shoes this weekend (haven't taken a picture yet), but they are lovely little slides with silver on the straps to match the straps on the dress - Payless - so they didn't cost a fortune! wooooooooo hoooooooo. I got this lovely as a gift :) There are some cute things in here that I have no doubt my daughters will want and hopefully make themselves, or at least maybe Nicole will make them herself. I took Dad to the hospital yesterday for his Cataract surgery and made this while I waited - all went well, I believe, he has some follow up visits. It is the PSA that has us worried and he has to wait until the end of MAY to see that doctor! That infuriates me, but that is another rant :) He is in good spirits as usual and hopeful about his eye. It has been a hot debate between doctors as to whether or not he has macular degeneration under the cataract that they just removed or not, so we will find out soon enough. Keeping my fingers crossed for him :)
Well, I'm off to bring the Art Teacher to work and then pick Dad up from doctors appointment and then back to work. I suppose I should THINK ABOUT going to the grocery store and BJ's since the minions keep telling me that I AM OUT OF TIME! ;)
I'll leave you with a Beau picture..... that is his towel that he carries around with him everywhere and he has brought one of his stuffed toys to sleep on and cuddle with! He truly is too funny!
Have a great day!
