I went out by myself to the mall....it was great to be out by myself, and not have to go where I wasn't interested in going, or wait while someone else looked at something. Since the mall wasn't terribly crowded, I got in a brisk walk - went all over the thing at least once. : )
I found a shirt for my husband, and a blouse for myself (why not!?) and then bought us both Auntie Anne's original pretzels. He was surprised and pleased when I gave it to him on my return home. I've tracked that nutrition, and am determined to eat even better the rest of the day, but it was a pleasant splurge.

Ok, it's warm compared to some people (currently about 38 Degrees F, and humid); but with the humidity, it's cold to me! I had an appt this morning, then ran a couple of errands. I was thankful to get back inside. : )
A very sweet lady I know 'went home' today to Heaven. Barb had breast cancer that spread to her brain then stomach and throughout her body. I know she's now healthy, no longer in pain, and in the presense of Jesus, but I am sad. The comfort I have, is that I will see her again when I get to Heaven, too. God does provide the perfect comfort. Please pray for her family's comforting.
Back to weather: Friday's hi is expected to be at or just below freezing. Brrrr! It's not even officially winter, by the calendar. Guess I need to pull out my sweaters. : )
Y'all stay warm now.

First, I want to thank all of you who responded to my blog yesterday. I watched the news broadcast and found they did a very nice job of advertising not only what we do, but that we're looking for more folks to join us, and of course, gifts of yarn.
I volunteered at my grandson's kindergarten class this morning, and now am contemplating the housework that I've been ignoring! Maybe if I look at it as exercise......yeah, that's a good idea. : )
Cheers, everyone. Have a great day.

Well, my knitting/crocheting group was finally able to link up with the local ABC camera crew and we were taped for broadcast tonight on the 5 o'clock news. (That's ABC27, Harrisburg, PA) If you're interested, you might be able to find it on their web site (later). That address is: http://www.whtm.com/
It was fun, the interviewer is a nice young lady, and we were able to share with others what we knit/crochet. Such things as: fetal demise pouches and caps; blankets for Project Linus; chemo hats for a cancer clinic; hats, mittens and scarves for a couple of elementary schools and womens' shelter.
I had a good time, and we 're hoping to gain additional knitters/crocheters as well as donations of yarn.

It's still Friday to me - had too much caffine, so can't get to sleep yet.
Went to a "First Friday" at my LYS and had a really good time. Was able to get a 15% discount on my total order (!) and bought some beautiful (alpaca, wool & nylon) sock yarn. Now 'all' I need to do is sit down and knit my first pair of socks! LOL
Got a name/phone number of a possible repairer of treadmills today. Probably will be cheaper in the long run to just get a new one - this one is at least 6 years old.
Waiting to hear when the TV station will be out to tape my knitting group. Getting excited about it......no, CONTINUING to be excited about it. : )
