Since I broke my ankle, I’ve spent many hours sitting in my recliner, knitting, reading, watching some TV, and mainly surfing the internet. I’ve found a lot of knitters’ blogs and have also read a lot of political articles. When I look at the other blogs, I realize I could do a lot more with mine – IF I can figure out HOW to add some things to it!
Amy and the girls came over to spend the day with me Saturday. Amy was a HUGE help because she cleaned the house for me! I don’t clean as often as I should and should have cleaned a couple weeks ago but I got sick, then I injured my ankle, so the house was a disaster (in my eyes). Of course, it was nice to spend some time with the girls. They found a 3-minute fairy tale book and I read quite a few of the stories to them. They enjoyed playing the piano and gave several “concerts”.

We ordered pizza and had a very nice day.
Last evening, on the way to church, I got my camera out to take some pictures of the changing leaves.
I should have taken some a few miles earlier because that’s where the nicest leaves were! Hopefully they’ll still look nice when we go to church Wednesday.
I’ve been making some dishcloths the last couple days. I made this one Saturday,
and made these two today.
It seemed like it took longer to copy down the directions than it did to make them! Normally I would print the directions on my printer/scanner/copier, but it ran out of ink. When I replaced the ink cartridge, the printer STILL said, “Out of ink, replace cartridge”. I think I need to hook my laptop up to the printer to get it to realize it DOES have ink!
John went to the preachers’ meeting in Indiana today and stopped at Michael’s to get a couple specific skeins of yarn for me. I told him to ask a clerk to get the yarn for him, so that’s what he did. He was back near the yarn and kept calling a clerk, “ma’am, ma’am”, and the clerk didn’t answer. He was very embarrassed when another clerk finally helped him and mentioned the other clerk was a male! OOPS!
This Saturday night, we’re going to have an open house for the new auditorium addition of the church building.
John, his brother Jeff, Brian, and John’s nephew-in-law Brian, have been practicing quartet songs for the program. Misse, Phyllis, and I are going to sing three songs, too.
Today is a momentous day for Caity. SHE’S 18!!!!!!! Happy birthday, Caity!
