    They're cute! I like their scarves.
  4. Cindy, I've also had a problem with working on anything but small projects. I hope to get the yarn out for the dahlia blanket today and get started on it. I tend to sit down with my kindle to watch a show and crochet and end up just watching. Yesterday was a very long day! Got home at 7 and still had to unload everything (grocery and walmart stops). DH's lab, dr apt, and infusion took forever--everything running late. But at least his white blood count was high enough for the infusion this week. The other two apts were really quick. I got the ok from ortho to return to regular activities. My foot still aches a little occasionally but otherwise is not a problem. DH is driving me crazy telling me about every detail on the news lately. I'm trying to just glance at it each day and not obsess over everything. Our temps are getting hotter with some rain still scattered in. At least I haven't had to do much watering yet. Looking forward to a quiet day with just DH's PT on the schedule. Hope everyone is well and having a good week!
  5. I just ordered 7 skeins to make a blanket for our newest soon to be adopted grandson. So I'll be in the negative who knows when with how long orders are sometimes taking--maybe next week if I'm lucky.
  6. I used another skein yesterday...+2 = WTD +4 YTD -15
  7. How can it seem like the days go by slowly but yet it's the end of May already?!?! LOL Mississippi starts "safe return" on Monday which lets pretty much everything open with limits/rules but with DH's issues we're still in the category instructed to continue sheltering in place. This has really gotten old! At least he's getting to the point of not needing constant "fetching and carrying" and I'm getting a little me time. PT is definitely helping his mobility. I finished off a skein yesterday...+2.
  8. Cindy, praying that your BIL does well with his procedure. We got together with DS and his family Sunday and Monday and swam and cooked on the grill. A couple of friends dropped by to swim also. Fun but definitely tiring days. Nice to be around some other people for a while too. DH has his second PT session today so I expect him to take a long nap this afternoon. I hope to crochet some then. Haven't been much in the mood to lately.
  9. Denise, your dad has really had a hard time! Hope he's on the mend now with no more complications. I understand what you mean about wanting a few weeks to yourself.
  10. Hello from Mississippi!
  11. Pretty, Judy! Nice blending of the colors.
  12. Pretty! Makes my eyes cross just thinking about making something that small. LOL
  13. They're all cute! I hate patterns where you just have to figure out some way to make it work.
  14. Mary Jo, I'm always amazed at your graph ghans! I would never have the patience. Brenda, congrats on receiving it!
  15. Judy, cute hats! It's been another week of what day is this. I don't think I've even picked up a crochet hook except to move it from the grands' reach. DH's white blood count has tanked again (they postponed his infusion and decreased dosage of oral chemo) so just when he's getting a little more freedom from ortho (he can bend the knee to 90 degrees--different brace with a hinge--and put weight on it; the in-home PT person comes tomorrow), he still can't get out around people. Upstairs AC wasn't working; AC guy came yesterday and couldn't find the problem except to say there's no power in the attic. DS got home this morning and found the cut off switch that was off, so upstairs is cooling again. Big relief that it was that simple. Catching up on washing today, other stuff to do, but that crochet hook is calling me. More businesses are opening here but it's still stay at home for us except for essentials that can't be ordered on line. The weather has bobbed up and down so much that we still haven't had any pool time (except for DIL who will swim when the water is in the 70's). I turned the heater back on today, so hopefully we can swim this weekend. Just realized yesterday that this is a holiday weekend--thought it was another week off. Hope everyone is well and having a good week!
  16. No rain today despite the forecast. The lift and platform are installed. He used it and my dad's old motorized chair and went out to the shop in the backyard for a little while late this afternoon. The opening and closing of doors and gates takes a second person but not a strong one. LOL So the two of us can get him in and out without extra help now. A big step in the right direction. Hopefully Tuesday's ortho apt will bring less restrictions and he can get out of the chair and use a walker. Hope everyone has a good weekend!
