The knitting project is sitting on the chair right now.  For some reason I can not seem to get the cable right.  Where you take so many stitches to another dp needle and hold it to the front or back.  For some reason it is not working right in my mind.  I will go back to it soon.

 

Yeah that is part of summer here with the humidity.  We had storms run thru this morning and we are looking for some later. 

 

Have to go and make the meatloaf for dinner tonight.  I can't wait to smell that meat and bbq sauce cooking.

 

Talk later and try to stay cool.

 

Keeping my fingers crossed for you owlvamp.

Mary Jo sorry you are having problems with your knitting project. They make knitting and cables look easy on Knit and Crochet Now but not easy enough for me to pick up knitting needles but I have thought about it. Your project looked like it was going to be complicated because 2 colors are involved and the cables are intertwined with the ones next to them and it looked like there was more cabling than straight knitting but since I dont knit I may be wrong on all counts. After you study on it a bit I know you will get it done. Meatloaf sounds good. We both love it.

I have had three different people try to teach me to knit

I have to put it down or those two 12 inch sticks could quickly become four 6 inch sticks,just not in my mental programming

but I really like the look of knit items

There are actually 3 colors involved.  Even with some crochet projects I have to put aside, because for some reason I am messing them up.  I  ignored how they told you to do it and am doing the cables my way and it is turning out better.

 

Storms are coming in.  I can hear the noise.

 

Have a fun night.

A- hem. once long ago whilst trying to weed eat I too had so much trouble with one I ended up tossing it into the road and getting in my van to ru nit over however neighbor guy was out so.

May I just take a moment and salute all those ladies in history who have gone before me that washed clothes by hand, boiled water for diapers and cooked on wood stoves... drank water with out ice cubes and sewed and knit because they HAD to... that pulled weeds when it was 101 outside and milked cows,carried water and eviscerated chickens in this heat..

 

   Cause obviously... I am a wimp...

 

  Is it wrong to sit in front of the AC in your underwear drinking gallons of sweet tea and refuse to cook?

 

   ... I dunno.... but I will tell you the outcome...

:grumpy:hot

Hello Everyone!

 

Sorry I've been missing. I came to my daughter's house on Friday (she lives about 35 minutes north of me) thinking I would spend the night, watch the baby on Saturday and go home so I didn't bring my laptop. But my daughter was/is having a lot of back pain so I am still here, but we did take a trip to my house today so I now have my laptop and some more clothes. I'm not sure how long I will be here since it is difficult for my daughter to bend or lean forward which makes if very difficult to take care of the baby, I'm just glad I'm off from work so I can help. I did bring my crocheting with me and I'm working on a baby afghan. I read through all the post but my brain is not remembering much except that its hot every where, I'm not sure what the temperature has been here, its south Florida so its hot  :hot 

I guess thats enough rambling and the baby needs a diaper change. Have a great evening.

Mary Jo I forgot it was three colors. Is it worked back and forth shortways with all the colors in play or longways one color at a time? Glad you got it going. It looked confusing to me.

 

Lea glad you made it back. I was starting to worry if you were okay or if you had been blocked. I was much better at roughing it when I was younger but the older I have gotten the more I realized I really like electricity ac and indoor plumbing.

Chips salsa and popcorn all sound good to me. I hope you get away with it. I could get by with it but my dh would insist on a bit more like lettuce and call it salad.

 

 

Cshort glad you are able to be there for your daughter. School starts here in 3 weeks.

ok sorry girls, but dinner here was meatloaf, mashed potatoes and a veggie dip.  I have been dying for an old fashioned meatloaf.  It was delicious.

 

I just took the trash out and man it is hot out there and it just rain, but you would not know it, as the street is dry already.

 

I had to laugh at the underwear in front of the ac.  I love it.  Hey I remember wanting to do that when we only had fans.

 

Just remember we can take cloths off, wear shorts and short sleeved shirts.  In a week I will be putting up the Gone with the wind table for August.  Imagine having to wear all those cloths, especially in the South.

 

I have just ripped out the who shawl.  I messed up a row and went to fix it, but was losing stitches right and left, so I will start over tomorrow.  I am going to start with a crochet chain, that I can pull out later.  You work across using the 4 colors.  You start with one white, two grey, two white, tow brown and finally one white.  I learned to knit first, when I was about 8, couldn't get the hang of crochet.  I have made argyle sweaters and such.  I even made a vest for my bil with a pheasant on the front crocheted into the vest with embroidery thread.   I just have to get back into the knitting mode.

 

Well, the trash is out and we are watching TV, trying to relax.  Then soon it is pills and off to bed. 

 

Boy I remember when I would stay up all night then got to work.

 

Good night everyone.

Mary Jo did you do it in the crock or blahhhh the hot oven Lol. Meatloaf does sou. So good lol

 

BGs I can picture that too and it is still a good idea lol a nightie and a cold Diet Coke would do the trick too. Do you have to have your Diet Coke with ice Brenda. I drink mine right out of the fridge in a can lol. Don't need no stinking ice lol

 

Good to see you mini!! You always make us laugh!

 

Well squares that is about all I got for tonight. Oh we had hand hammered hand batteried pork tenderloins !! one of handyman favs to make lol I think it's cause he gets to pond it ll. . And chips and Oreos for desert lol. Hope it stays cooler for us all. Night now.

Thank you katyallen would love some little balls of cotton yarn.

 

Yep I have those darn blisters and they aren't fun.

 

Nope I feel like stripping to bare naked ladies. But I would scare lights off. LOL

Our air conditioner fan stopped working today. It's just crazy. She'll come by tomorrow to look at it. It is so darn hot that my migraine kicked in and I have been sick all evening. Went and laid down in front of the fan. I'm a little better right now with a fan blowing on me.

I've had to haul water for drinking, bathing and cooking. Hauled logs and firewood for heating. But I'm spoiled now and need the air on very hot days. I couldn't live the way they did back in the day. And think to Tink they wore long dresses and many layers.

Oh no Sandra not the ac. Hope its an easy fix. Our heatpump quit the first round of heat advisories towards the end of June. I tried to suck it up but it was miserable. I didnt want to go do any work outside because I knew I couldnt run in the house to cool off. And boy was it hot when my little ball of fur wanted her lap time.

 

Katy I got braces for my 40th birthday and cold hurt so I started drinking almost everything at room temperature and still do for the most part. When I get hot I like it chilled a bit from the fridge. We use so little ice that I usually dont have any on hand to put in drinks

 

 

Mary Jo I cant imagine wearing those long dresses petticoats and corsets in the heat. Sorry you had to rip out the shawl. I had to pull apart another little ghan as I am trying to make them work out with the yarn I have. Dummy me for thinking I would be able to augment with the white yarn but no the white in the multicolored yarns looks dirty against it. Then there were the 3 skeins of white that I was going to use in one afghan but each skein was a little different. Right now I am trying to decide whether to pull apart one because I am not sure I like the way the colors are pooling. I get mad at myself for not noticing it sooner.

Good Morning!

 

Sandra, I hope your air conditioner is fixed soon and that you are feeling better.

 

Mary Jo, I can't wait to see the table. 

 

My daughter and the baby are still sleeping and my son-in-law left for work so I am enjoying a cup of coffee. I think my daughter is planning to make a doctor's appointment today if she is still in pain. Yesterday she called the pain specialist she saw a few years ago but they don't take the insurance she has now. And she kept getting a busy signal when she called her pcp, I wonder if they were having problems with their phones, so she'll try again today. Other than that I don't have plans except for snuggling the little one and maybe a little crocheting. 

 

Hope everyone has a great day.

Good Morning. 

 

Well, the shawl is now back into it's little balls and I will start again, but it will have to wait.  I just noticed what the date was and this morning I went into the cotton room, closed my eyes and said jump into my arms if you want to be a tote.  Hey it worked.

 

So back into crochet mode to get the tote done.

 

Owlvamp do you want just a  certain size small ball, or will any do?  I have some here, that I can't use for much.

 

Going from crochet to knitting is like when you learn a new language.  You think in crochet :hook , then have to translate it to :knit  knitting. :rofl 

 

Picked up the paper and man the heat is something else.

 

Made the meatloaf in the oven.  Still can't being myself to do it in the crock.  It is like making it in the microwave.

 

Well off to see what is going on in the ville.

 

Have a fun day.
