Crochet Hat!

Made myself this hat to match my swimsuit. That sounds funny huh? Its cold outside so wanted something to put on when I get out of the pool. I love this hat pattern. I've made so many of these. Although I'm feeling yicky today so probably won't go swimming today.

Oasis Swim Meet!

Jimmy did so great at his meet yesterday...he dropped his times in every event he did ...dropped a total of 37 seconds! Amazing! On his breast stroke he dropped 18 seconds plus came in 1st! Super duper job! He had a blast swimming in such an amazing a cool play pool for in between events! Very tired boy!:)
Yeah Jimmy! You did awesome!

Knittin' Update!

Here's a knittin update...I know, I know...FINALLY!:) These are the olives "Olive You" that I made for hubby for Valentines...aren't they the cutest! These are low in fat and high in fiber! ha ha that lil bit of humor was for TN Dawn!:)

These are the Magic Loop, Charlie Brown Valentine socks. This is sock number one, after being ripped out and started over. One day, by next Valentines will have its mate. Gotta keep the romance and anticipation alive right! :) Haven't worked on these because I've been trying to make my niece some bunny slippers (below)...she's going to be two and have never seen her so don't really know what size to make...tried a small with size 6 needles...nope...tried a small with size 7 needles...still to I'm trying a size large with 7 needles. Its looking more right. The pattern doesn't specify what child sizes sooooooooo.....

I'm feeling better health wise...think this round of meds are working. Been walking a mile or doing the eliptical for a mile a day and next week I'm going to start back to swimming. Can't wait...really miss it. Jimmy's got a big swim meet this weekend in downtown LA in the pool the Olympic swimmers swam in. Pretty cool except its an outdoor pool and we're having a big rainstorm Saturday and Sunday. Shoot even the Nascar race is going to be rained out on Sunday because its here in CA too! Going to have a wet weekend! Stay dry!

Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit!

After the memorial service last a nice, hot, bubble bath to relax. Ordered Pizza Hut...sat down to relax and knit and started looking at the Valentine sock. Well.......I also looked at the skein....this didn't look enough for two socks! Sooooo I ripped out almost all they way back...just going to have 6 repeats of the pattern part. Ugh! I was working on the foot part of it too...but didn't want to have just one sock when I got done. So frustrating! I have not been having good luck with socks!! I need to get a kitchen scale to weigh it as I wind it!

Nascar racing starts today...whoohoo!

Nothing new...

Hi Guys!
Haven't been posting because nothing's been going on. Normal chores, laundry, ironing, etc., teaching Jimmy, playing Webkinz with Jimmy, taking him swimming...I've been walking about 1/2 a mile around the house. Was just feeling blah, now my jaw is pulled so can't open my mouth that wide, my head feels like a sinus infection is coming, and my thyroid levels are mussed up still. The doctor is trying another medicine...said today that its like finding a comfortable pair of shoes...gotta just keep trying them on till you find some that work, ugh. Did get five truck loads of dirt today...wouldn't think we'd need dirt on five acres of dirt! Its good dirt though not like the blow sand we have. I know, so exciting I'm talking about dirt!:) Haven't really knitted...think I did two whole rounds on my Valentines socks last night. After tomorrow I can take a pic of what I made hubby and post it. Tomorrow Jimmy and I are supposed to go on an ice cream date...he's wanting Ghiraldelli (?) chocolate carmel I'll want my chocolate mint! TTFN

Fun Day!

Yesterday, Jimmy and I went shopping. I needed to get an outfit for Jim's memorial service next weekend. Here I thought it was going to be a tough, grueling, depressing day...but it was so fun. Walked in, grabbed a bunch of dresses and suits....tried on one that Jimmy calls a "man suit" which he didn't even want me to grab...and it fit perfect! It hides the tummy ponch, love handles and big booty! Go to pay for it and its 30% off and no tax! Then went to get some new heels to go with it and found some for $13.00! Whoohoo! We then walked the mall...looked at all the stores that have Webkinz....went to Bath and Bodyworks and got lots of yummy soaps, lotion, and lip gloss. Then we went out to lunch together at Red Robin....mmmmmm Had such a great time!

Knitting news....I'm on the heel of the Valentine sock...did a couple of rows last night but was sooo tired.

Today is laundry, changing bed, cleaning bathroom, etc. Have a great day!

Cosmo better!

Went to the new vet great! The other vet put him on a dog scale...15lbs. This vet put him on a cat scale...21lbs! Oh my arms! Right there tells you how well the rest of the visit went. Since of course he wasn't showing any symptoms yesterday the vet changed him to a prescription food that is for urinary problems. He's acting fine now. Yeah! I did have him check his glucose because he's been drinking like thre's no tomorrow. So happy he's doing better.

Went and picked up Jimmy's gift basket he won at Webkinz Day at the candle shop. He won 3 card packs, a whole school supply kit (folders, notebook, pens, pencils, ruler, case) and a Pinto Webkinz toy. He was so fun to win things. I was going to take a picture but the camera's not working (for me) this morning. I was even going to take Cosmo's pic...he's still sitting where I put him...sweet kitty!

Be My Valentine Charlie Brown socks...approx. 3in. done! Whoohoo! So far Magic Loop is doing good.

Magic Loop

Started the Magic Loop socks friday night...went an inch...payed attention to the ends...4 knits on one side and 4 purls on other end....Saturday night frogged on knit two rows...dang it same thing happened again...ribbit ribbit...I'm so good at ripping look at what I'm doing...hmmmm Jen said to look at it like a cup...well dang I'm drinking on the wrong side! Start again, face it toward my mouth and by golly geepers its working! Duh, don't know where my head was. Well, yeah watching movies...friday night watched Daddy Day Camp and last night watched The Gameplay...both really good..not good for knitting though!

Went to a Webkinz day thingy yesterday and Jimmy won the gift basket! Whoohoo, we pick it up tomorrow...he's so excited. Although when they called him last night he just said politely thank you but as soon as he got off the phone it was the big hoopin and hollerin boogy dance! :) So funny! Gonna have a relaxing, pajama day today...don't have to go have laundry to do but am going to find some knittin time too. Super bowl is a good time to knit...have no idea what they're doing with that ball anyways except trampling each other!:)

Cosmo has his new doc appt. tomorrow. I got all his paperwork, tests and xrays from Doc #1. Of course, Doc 1 had to try to show me all his stuff again...I said I didn't want to see him just wanted my stuff but he persisted so I let him yap and then said well whats wrong with him and how are you going to treat it...well uh I don't know....Thank you goodbye! And off I went with my papers and took down the xray and walked out. Ugh! Went bra shopping afterwards and got me some pretty sling shots...but dang for as much as they cost they should be made out of gold! Then got hubby some new shirts and ties and got the boys some Valentine goodies. Gotta get off the computer so I can have some knittin time and make some yummy nachos! Have a "Super" day, haha get it Super!:)
