At Last

Our new president and first lady gave us a beautiful moment this past tuesday, January 20th 2009. Their first dance together was at the Neighborhood Ball, which was a great idea, to the glittering eyes of their admirers. Me included! It was one of the warmest moments of the day and that song will ring in my heart forever. In my lifetime, wonder still exists.
I am getting better. I didn't over dose on the otc drugs, but I wanted to. I haven't been sick like that in a long time and I got the flu shot! Well I said I was going to start eating healthier and that sickness has given me the boost I needed. I don't want to be sick like that ever again! I still have one ear blocked. chest cracking cough and wheezing like a gnarled old troll. At least I can get back to knitting and focusing on a certain little sweater.

I'm Sick

Fighting colds, and wanting to curl up and cry. Too sick to blog but I wanted to let anyone know if they are interested in my well being, I'm on the edge of od-ing on otc drugs. Geez, I hate being sick...

Hoodies are not winter coats!

Is it me, or has the world gone wild with hoodies? It's 36 degrees, it's the middle of winter and most of the Philadelphia's are wearing hoodies and I mean only hoodies.
It's crazy and no wonder everyone is sniffling, coughing, sneezing and making me
extremely paranoid. I'm a germ-a-phobic, and I want Philadelphia's to put some clothes on darn it! I now have a sore throat and barely a voice to sing. (However the sounds coming out of my mouth now seems to attrack frogs of various species)
( they keep leaving wet three toe prints on my floor which is kinda of annoying) Anyhoo if I come down with pneumonia, blame the Philadelphia's, all of them!

Making small sweaters are fun! Its still a WIP (work in progress {knit speak}), but I should be done by the weekend for sure. Check out my pics

One for the Road

I seem to only attract one follower, my niece, Bella, and I totally appreciate not only the fact you read this, but you comment too. It makes me feel like a star-a one fan star- but at least I'm shining. -lol- I am now doing this on a semi-daily basis and hopefully I'll be just like Bella! -ok Bella you have a gigantic plug, hook an auntie up and get the rest of the family to read and comment- I also read a comment about an afghan. Didn't realize Afghans were that colorful for a war like people. lol

Severe Memory Loss

I remembered writing about cutting down on my outside eating. Well that got shot to hell but I keep telling myself it's a process. (that's gonna be a major chant this year). Train station and Deliahs-need I say more. Looks like I'll need help with my
new way of life. I wonder if I can hire a good eating hit man. Just when I raise some
junk to my mouth, the hit man would jump out snatch it and run off. Of course that
describe most thieves with jewelery, but there's got to be an industry there!
Taking a small break from my regular knitting and trying my hand at baby clothes.
Don't know why I got this urge to try and knit baby clothes.

Yeah I know it's late but really really heartfelt! Hmmm....does sarcasm come over well in print?? New year, new objects.

1. Get my self together

2. Remind myself to read one

I'm going for simplicity this year. Really trying to stay well because the past year and even into this year I have been overly sick. Going to turn a new leaf and eat more of them too!! Will cut out my outside eating to once or twice a week (that will be the major challenge of my life because I really hate to cook) and drink, drink, drink. With a water chaser (smiles)
Example of the knitted dickeys I gave to most of my family before I burned out. Working on a few I missed, so don't tell them shhhhh. Because between me and you, blogs are so secrective! lol
