I am glad to hear that Ann is recovering well. Isn't it nice that her husband is keeping us informed. I will still be praying for her safe and complete recovery since I know hospitals aren't the most sanitary places in the world.

Jan, I too am concerned about Sarah. I hope she is doing well. Is she back home yet? Let us know Glenna.

Patty, what a wonderful surprise for you, all that yarn. I have a skein that I got over Christmas and I am not sure what I am going to do with it. I have a stained glass afghan I started and I think this yarn might go very well in it. You made me want to run to the store and get some of the cotton yarn, Sugar and Spice isn't it? I need new dishclothes and towels. The latter I get at Costco. I just buy a package of white hand towels and they work very well. Of course, I can't keep them in my kitchen for long. They get "borrowed", If they come back they are no longer fit to dry dishes.

As I said before there isn't much going on around here. I am going back to reading my books as soon as I finish reading my mail and doing my Sparkpoints.

See you later,

Love, Judy emoticon

Just had a note from Earnie on Ann,

Hi Patty: Today is Sunday 11 am here in San Diego. Ann is doing fine, not getting much sleep because they wake her every 2 hours for something. She's in great spirits & will be sitting up in chair today & walking on Monday.

Her loving DH: Earnie

Sounds like things are going well for her.

Good morning everyone,

Patty, what a wonderful day you had. You will be in yarn heaven.

It's rainy this morning. DH and I will be going to church.

I'm making the 15-minute Shrimp Paella from Spark for our dinner.

I hope Ann is doing well. Also thinking of Sarah and hope she is on the mend and maybe soon to go back home.

Yesterday I ate within my food plan, drank my water and walked outside for half an hour.

Oh my, girls,
we had such a fun afternoon yesterday.

First of all, Nina and Paulissa, soooooo good to see you back with us. We miss you when you are not here.

Now for the afternoon.
I was in the Ben Franklin store on Friday, by the yarn dept. I was looking for a specific yarn, but they do not make it anymore. I needed it to finish up a project. Oh well. While I was there, I saw a lady that I went to school with. She was a grade ahead of me, and I was in the same class as her sister.

Anyway, I am making this much longer than it needs to
She said she has some yarn at home that I could just have. Really, just have it. yes. How thoughtful. As I make most of my items for charity, what a great deal.

So yesterday, hubby and I went over there to get the yarn. Bag after garbage bag after bags of yarn...oh my, so much yarn. It filled up the trunk and the back seat. Couldn't get any more yarn in the car if we tried...I will take pics of all the bags later and put it on my blog, but oh my.

Lots of cotton 1 pound cones
Lots of worsted weight yarn
Lots of all kinds of yarn.

How thoughtful of this lady to give me all this yarn.

I told her we would both be making warm heads with this yarn, she in donating it, me, in knitting it up.

Then when we got home, DS was there to visit with us. He stayed for quite a while and we just talked and talked. He is really a loner, so this was such a nice visit.

Then last night, I was so overwhelmed with the day, that I couldn't decide what to make with my new yarn.
So I got out a cone of hot pink cotton yarn, and started a dish cloth. The pattern where you start out with 4 stitches, knit 2, yarn over, knit the rest of the row,...that one. I like that simple one. Easy peasy with shorter knitting needles and just the right kind of idiot work I needed to calm down a bit...

Ok, now down to business
How was yesterday?

did you move?

did you drink your water?

did you stick to your lifestyle food plan?

Let's make today a healthy day.
