I was informed today that someone in the group has used my friends list to promote a product that I do not endorse. I want to make it clear that I don't endorse it, nor have I used it, nor do I want to. I don't know whom has been contacted but I apologize if you have been contacted about this product. I was not informed nor was I asked to share your names/email addresses'. I'm highly embarrassed of the manner in which the person has behaved and do not want it to reflect on to me. I'm mortified and speechless...yes, me speechless!

Haven't been knitting because I caught Jimmy's bug! So far James hasn't caught it...he had to stay home Monday because we were both down for the count. We're doing better but still weak and have the head cold part of it...ug! Take care and stay well!

On a sad note....Jimmy is really sick. He started vomitting last night and having diarrhea every twenty/thirty minutes all night. He's one sick little boy. We're very, very tired today. He finally went seven hours this late morning with out spewing from either end!:) Yeah! Hopefully he will continue to improve throughout the day. Lots of fluids and rest!

Today is Cheer Up the Lonely Day!Cheer Up the Lonely Day is an opportunity to make a lonely person happy. Any time you can make someone happy, you've done a good thing, and should be proud of yourself.
Lonely people have few friends and loved ones. They may have lost loved ones over the years. They may be elderly. They see people on an infrequent basis.
Spend some time today cheering up lonely people. It's easy to do.....just spend some time with them. When you visit, bring happy things to talk about. Keep the conversation upbeat, and lively. When you leave, give a big hug and let them know you enjoyed the stay. Sending cards or making a phone call is okay, only if they live too far away to visit. What a lonely person really needs, is face to face time with other people.

Look at what I found when I got back from the doctor and errands yesterday!
My TN buddy, Dawn, sent me all these wonderful things! A Ty sheepie I can play online with, a beautifully knitted lace washcloth with matching soap/sachet holder (filled with lavender sachets), Schaeffer yarn (so soft and yummy) what shawl shall I do with it? Plus she sent me a cupcake...not just any cupcake...its a candle! I almost bit into it anyways because it even smells real! Its the neatest thing I've ever seen and its low in calories!:) She sent me an e-card this morning too that said to "party my butt off".... She hasn't been feeling well lately and I can't believe she did all this for me, she's a really special lady! Thank you Dawn so much, it means so much to me...so glad to have you in my life! Love and hugs!

Found these goodies at my favorite yarn store, The Scarlet Skein! A sea turtle kit which was 75% off! The alpaca is from the Flying Eagle Ranch that they'd just got in. The black alpaca is from a baby named Star; the light brown alpaca is from Duente; and the dark brown is from the alpaca, Storm. I was excited to find out the names of the alpaca that went with the yarn!
See how happy yarn buying is to my guys!

Monday was moving day and went shopping in Atascadero (my favorite yarn shop, The Scarlet Skein) and shopping in Morro Bay. Yarn photos another day! Tuesday was beach play day...61 degrees on the beach with wind...needless to say I didn't put the bathing suit on....in fact I wrapped up in towels and froze...my water boy though of course had to get in the surf, I'm surprised you can't see the goose bumps on him in the pic! We made some cool sand castles too.
Yes, I took this myself...what a great photographer I am...at least you can't see my double chin!:)
