It has been a beautiful 70's day here too.
Patty, the doll you were given to finish reminded me of a sweater someone offered to finish for me. My oldest DS eons ago wanted a wrap type of sweater. He probably was in high school at the time. It was cream in color with red, navy, med. blue colors in a pattern around the body like one big strip. Same pattern on each sleeve. Kinda reminded me of an Indian zig zag type. Anyway the colors took a guzillion bobbins for the stripe that were such a pain. I got tired of working on it. When the bank I worked for was closing our division with a new computer system coming in, our work downsized too. One gal offered to work on the sweater for me instead of no work. She had the darnest time trying to match my knitting guage. She didn't finish it but did get more done. My now DS retired from the Air Force, was married with a daughter and I knew he would never wear the sweater. I finally unraveled the main color and used it for my knitted hats. The unravelling wasn't easy either. I remember my DH saying why don't you just toss it and go buy some yarn. Have you ever tried Alavert for your allergies? That works good for me where Claritin does nothing. My doctor suggested the Alavert that is over the counter. Wonderful that your DM is able to drive again.
Linda, I think reading is a hobby if it relaxes you. Are you a reader during the TV commercials?
I bought me another crock pot today. I've been toying with the idea of a 1 1/2 quart one for small quantity items. When I've looked at them they look so small. Taste of Home Magazine had one on sale for about $13.00 last week. I went to WalMart today and found a Rival 2 quart for $10.88. It looks a little bigger than the 1 1/2. According to the very few recipes that came with it, it will hold a 2 lb. roast.
Now I have a project trying to find the smaller crock pot recipes. I think the ones that you cut up the chicken breast in chunks will work very well. I've also got a couple of desserts to try.
I also got my newsletter and want to try one of the pie recipes minus the crust.
