  1. So far so good with dh. He went to work today. Let's see how his sugar is now. He has been checking which is good. I'm going to craft club tonight. It's been a few weeks since I've been.

    It's stunning and I hope it raises a lot of $ at the auction!!
  3. Good morning It's been a rough couple of days but things are getting back to normal. Dh ended up in the hospital on Wednesday. He had been nauseous and vomiting for a few days and stubborn man wouldn't listen to me to call the dr. He has diabetes and I didn't think this was just a stomach virus. And of course he wasn't checking his sugar levels. He was in diabetic keto acidosis. And he was dehydrated. And his labs were all out of whack. Hopefully this was a big wake up call. He isn't very good at checking his sugar every day. And I can only nag so much. He was DC home yesterday. On a happier note, my dd had the grand reopening reception for her print shop on Friday evening. I had promised to be the Jali watcher and since DH wasn't going to be DC until sat morning I went. It was amazing. Such a big turn out. And Jali was so good. He is the print shop baby I walked him to her apt and put him to sleep around 8:30. Her print shop is only 2 blocks away from her apt. I'm so proud! I just caught up on all the posts! And didn't write anything down so suffice to say, I will go forward from here. BUT I must say congrats to Marisa!!!! I'm so happy for you. Exciting times ahead!!!!! Happy super Bowl Sunday everyone!!
  4. Hi all, Yesterday we went to my son in laws dad's place for a get together and had a great time. It was nice to spend time with the boys. Today, I had some cleaning to do, and did pack up a bag of clothes. Cindy, thanks for the inspiration. I went to trader joes and the rest of the afternoon has been spent alternating between knitting and crocheting. And now here we are almost 7 pm. Dh fell asleep and took a long nap. If I did that I'd never sleep the night through. He doesn't have that problem. Dinner is ready and now that he's awake, it's time to eat!! Have a good night and 'Monday!!!
  5. Happy Friday! And belated happy birthday to Cindy and happy birthday to Marisa! Went back to work Wednesday. Cold is so much better, with just an occasional cough from some left over congestion i Love the homespun blanket and good job repairing the other blanket, Judy Mary I hope you enjoyed lunch. Can't remember the last time I had one on one time with my daughters, other than my oldest who is single. Lol Leeann. I remember you talking about the ice sculpture last year. So cool. No pun intended. Lol. How's your wrist? Marlene. Hope all is well and you are trying to get some rest. How's dh? Off to knit and unwind. We had breakfast for dinner tonight. Easy, peasy!
  6. Good morning I am going to take a sick day. It's just a cold, but I am continually blowing my nose. I feel ok but think it's best to keep my germs to myself. Some of the staff have work laptops and work from home. If I had one its one of those days that I would work from home, but alas, I don't, so sick day it is. I'll make it a pj kind of day, with resting, crocheting, knitting and reading. Marlene glad you won't miss your water pills. Worst of the weather is behind us. Kept our power and no trees down. Hope you fared as well, Judy Dh is home again today. Each day he feels better. Tomorrow it's off to the doctor for him. He will find out if he is clear to return to work and the results of the ct scan Guess I'll crochet a bit before I call into work. We have to speak to our supervisor and not just leave a message. Although, I'm sure she probably has some idea I might not be in today. Dd posted pics last night of the ribbon cutting ceremony at the Hahne&Co building and the opening of Newark Express . Newark Express is all the art related Rutgers studios and galleries including the print shop. They had quite a turnout!! DD has scheduled the grand opening of her print shop for the 3rd. I'll be going up and will go to the opening reception with Jali for a while and then take him back to her apt and babysit. She wants Jali there for part of it. After all, he has been part of print shop since before he was born. Lol. Have a good day everyone.
  7. Cindy. How fun that you had a surprise birthday party and you were surprised!!! I did see a pic on fb so I assume that was your sibs and spouses !! Mary. I don't mind homespun. And I do like how soft it is Marlene. You really shouldn't miss taking your water pill. That's a lot of fluid that you had retained!! I hope you will take it regularly. Ok, lecture over. Lol. I hope you are not overdoing it. Seems like a lot of work with all that cooking At least you slept for 10 hours. Hope it went smoothly woth dh and the dentist. My dh fell at work last week. Nothing broken but he is sore. Had to go today for a cat scan and goes back to dr on wed. Winds have been strong. Hoping there is not too much damage at the shore. I left work early around 2:30. My nose was getting stuffier by the minute. Came home and took a nap. Will see how I feel tomorrow. May just stay home and rest up Here's hoping we keep power since the winds will be strong all night. Judy. Hope you have power and that the trees stay where they are suppose to. Lee Ann I'm curious. Saw your post on fb that you are a lefty and teaching yourself to crochet left handed. If right handed crochet is working why do you need to learn left handed? Like I said, just curious. Btw. The blanket you are making is looking good!!!! Marisa. Hope all is well. Sorry about the steeler loss. I'm not a steeler fan, but I was rooting for them to b eat the pats Have a good night everyone.
  8. Hi all, Well it looks like a Patriots, Falcons Super Bowl. I'll be rooting for the Falcons!!! I went to visit dd and Jali today. When I got there he got all excited!! Melted my heart! We went over to the print shop and it is looking amazing!!! A friend of dds did a mural on one of the walls and got it done in 4 days.....it is awesome!!! The wind is kicking up and nor'easter is on the way ....luckily not snow, just rain, but it's the high winds they are forecasting that I'm not too excited about. Have a good rest of the evening
  9. Hi all, Now that grocery shopping and cleaning are done, I'm going to sit and crochet and knit for a bit !!! Hope you all have a good weekend!!!! Glad you are going to live Mary!!!! I feel like a cold is starting...I'm taking it easy and upping my vit C and echinacea !!!!

  11. Great hat, Cindy! And kudos for finishing a WIp!!! Love that pattern you posted!!!!!! Had a busy day at work. But then again, day after a holiday is always busy. Does anyone watch the show This is Us? I love it!!!!
  12. Had a wonderful day!!! My daughter is the director and founder of Newark Print Shop! It is her passion. They redid a building downtown, the old Hahne & co building There are going to be art classrooms for Rutgers , a whole foods, a couple of restaurants, art galleries, apartments. It's really quite amazing. My daughter founded the Newark print shop about 8 years ago. Her first space was the back room of her apt which actually was set up as an artist studio. There was a fire in the building and she found a new space and after lots of work, they were able to turn it into a vibrant community space. Their weekly print club is quite popular and they do workshops, and run pop up print shops in addition to hosting children's groups. she runs a printer in residence program. I met one them today, since he came to volunteer and help set up this new space. He was telling me how much my daughter has done for the community and how much he has learned from her. It was a very proud mom moment. About two years ago, Rutgers approached her. They were interested in partnering with her and moving the print shop into the building. So here she is, two years later and it has become reality. They are busy setting up this new space this week and have had lots of people volunteering to help from the community. The main hallway on the first floor has pictures featuring 100 people that live in Newark. Each of them had to be nominated by their neighbors and peers for their outstanding contributions to the community. My daughter is one of them. She is an artist, was teaching art, and is Hoping to make the print shop her full time job. She is drawing a salary from them. Her school district allows you to take a year off after the birth of a child and they hold your job. If she needs to, she can go back to her teaching job in Sept. And work part time at print shop. The best part about today was getting in lots of Jali time ❤️
  13. Here's a quick pic of the baby blanket I finished. Heading up to visit dd and Jali today and her new print shop space!
