this weeks post

I feel like this week was the same as the last post. I mowed grass for two days, got stung by a wasp 4 times and now I am helping a friend out with her dads funeral. It also stormed again tonight. Didn't this week happen just like that last week? Any more illness or death needs to stay at Satan's door not mine-Be gone Devil! There I spoke it.
I started on Square two of our afghan loom class finally. I hope to get the basket weave scarf moving along and done soon. Then I want to make the pinwheel blanket. I am behind but oh well. I won't let that stop me. I just need to find that pattern...hmm, is it under pile A, or was that B or C? It may even be in the living room. I'll find it soon, then the hunt for the perfect yarn out of my stash. That could take a whole day in itself. The looming will probably be the easy part. When I clear off a space I will sew linings for the two bags I made. I need to hurry that up so I can use my bag. My other one is just a bit to small for me. I have trouble carrying my checkbook and my inhaler and my epiPen with my other junk in such a small bag. I think this one will suit me much better. I have to finish it since my husband wants to take a trip at the end of May. I will be without a computer for two whole weeks-boohoo. Now I really want that laptop. This second hand computer already has problems too. I'll see what Santa can do for Christmas. :-)

long time no see

I haven't posted on here in a while now. I have been busy knitting, and painting a bedroom. I stalled on the bedroom since I can't move the desk without help. Then the carpet gets out the door. The paint is dry and I have one more blind to put up. Then the rearranging begins. I'll post a picture real soon. I finished felting my striped bag finally. I still have to make the lining. I also made a small child's bag. A little girl wanted to learn how but she gave up after a few rows. I finished it. Now it also needs lining. I will probably do both of those tomorrow. Last week was a bust. Only the painting got done. I had to help with a funeral and Wednesday was just a weird day. This week is going better but I'm not finishing anything yet. Hopefully tomorrow. Today we had storms and a Tornado went about 4 or 5 miles west of us. We were sitting here waiting for it at dinner time. Luckily it went North and when it hit the lake it weakened. This is Tornado season here and we get many. I live in Tornado alley.
