Goodness, I can’t believe our weather lately. We finally got some snow the other day, but it’s all gone now. We are near 50 today, but we can’t enjoy it because of our wind. We are currently in a high wind advisory, with sustained winds between 30-50mph and wind gusts up to 70mph. And believe me, it feels that way out there. Paul and I went out for a bit, ran some errands, spent some time together, but it was hard walking to the store in that wind. It should mellow out tonight and I’ll be looking forward to that. Thankfully there hasn’t been any damage around our house, just garbage cans and chairs blown about. I hope that’s all that happens.
I’ve been busy working on some crocheting items. I taught some of my friends crocheting last Saturday at a ‘back to basics’ day a friend started. She wants to have people teach us different things like crocheting, soap making, gardening etc… I don’t know that I would go to all of them, because honestly, some things I’m just not interested in. But this first one was on crocheting, and she asked me to teach it. It went great, we made a simple dish cloth of all single crochets. The only ‘issue’ is that I taught them my own, weird version of single crochet. lol 😀 I just crochet, I don’t think about what I’m doing, and when I have to ‘think’ about it and show it to someone I tend to forget what it is. I’m just that way, with numbers too. But the ladies took it well, and were happy that we made up a stitch together. 🙂 But beyond that, the time of sitting around together, crocheting and just enjoying each others company was so sweet. I use to get together with other friends a lot when my kids were younger and I lived in Illinois. But trying to make new friends out here, and with my children older, it just seems so hard to get together at times. That’s what made this time so fun and special. Plus another friend and I have started an actual craft day. We are meeting once a month right now, and our first get together will be March 10th. We have about 8 ladies coming, and I can’t wait. Most of the ladies are older than me, and I can’t wait to meet them, see what they are working on and just fellowship. It should be a great time.
I need to order our school curriculum soon. Actually I have the list ready, and the money, I just haven’t spent the time to order it all. Even with a list, when I order I like to look around a bit, double check my order, things like that. So it does take a while and it isn’t quick for me, because of that I haven’t taken the time to sit down and do it. I should by this weekend. I really like looking forward to the UPS truck coming and packages being delivered. 🙂
I have a doctors appointment set up with the hematologist on Monday afternoon. Hubby has asked for the day off so I don’t have to go alone, I’m thankful for that. Honestly I haven’t thought about it a whole lot, which is probably good. The more I think about it, the more I would worry. We’ll just see what the doctor says and go from there.
Well, I’m off to finish my smaller yarn bag I’m crocheting. I think I’m going to give it to Sarah, and then maybe make myself a smaller one out of varigated yarn. It is so simple and quick to make, and I would like to have a smaller one for simple projects. I hope Sarah will like this one. I’ll try and get a picture of it before I give it to her, and maybe even a picture of her with it. 🙂
Speaking of pictures, you know I can’t leave without sharing at least one picture. 🙂
