Who would have "thunk"? Do these photos take your breath away, make your heart skip a beat? Did you also have to do a double take on what you saw with your own eyes. So what do those of you reading my blog think? Are there awards given out for such dedication? Anna I must thank-you for putting these wonderful photos on your blog. I would have left a comment but your comment section is closed. I hope you don't mind me putting the link to this entry on my blog.

Knitting Goodness

Today I received my "sub weener" prize from Nancy in the addictedtoknitdishcloth group I belong to for guessing who won the needle lotto. It was a great prize. There is nothing like going to the mailbox and finding knitting goodness in it. I received four stitch markers. Two say I love knitting and two are of a ball of yarn with knitting needles. I am sorry to say I tried and tried and tried and tried to take a photo but couldn't get one close enough and clear enough. But I also received a knitted dishcloth which I was able to take a good photo of. It is a round one made in my ever fave S&C "Gundrop" colorway. And I am not fond of orange but I do so love this colorway. So here is a photo of my new dishcloth.

Today Cathy and Diane came over. You will notice most of my posts are done late at night and I write them as if they are the day that just passed and not as the day the time stamp shows. We had a lovely lunch. Then after eating and gabbing but before they left for home we went to Mona's. Unfortuantly Mona doesn't have any A/C and it was just deadly hot and humid so we didn't stay long but long enough for both Cathy and Diane to make purchases. I got to touch and pet the yarns. While there I showed Mona a skein of Crystal Palace Panda Wool I have that I received as a gift hinting it would be a great yarn for her to carry along with its' sister yarns Panda Cotton and Panda Silk.

I must admit I had a nap after I got home from Mona's. After I awoke from my short nap a customer picked up her Avon order and I spoke to my girlfriend Lori as we had plans to go to the an evening movie. And yes we did go to the movies. We were going to see Sicko but it wasn't playing at any of the Silver City theaters. AND the Silver City theaters have specials on Tueday which we wanted to take advantage of along with it seemed thousands of others this evening. The theater was so crowded it took about 25 minutes to get throught the refreshment line. I was very very happy with what we saw instead. Not only on Tuesdays do you get to see the movie but you also get a medium popcorn and medium drink of your choice in your movie ticket price of $8.95. My friend Lori and I saw Hairspray. I did not know much about this movie except the brief glance I saw of the coming attractions on the TV which seemed like a fun movie to go to. So when the movie started I did a double take at one of the characters and who played it. I won't say who as not to spoil it for those who also don't know. It was a fun movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I laughed so hard at parts I had tears in my eyes. So everyone reading my blog make sure you see it. It is well worth the cost and a great evening or afternoon outting. Finally I can say I saw a movie worth the money I had to pay to see it and got free popcorn and soda. I certainly wish I was living in New York again and could have seen the broadway version of it.

Do I have more to write? Of course, I do but am I going to write more now? No as I have a big day tomorrow. The weather forcast for tomorrow is again hot and humid with a possible thunderstorm and I don't do boomers. Add to that I have an eye doctor appt and may have my eyes dilated again, have to deliver two Avon orders, go to the postal outlet with one of my ebay sales and make sure I am home before Shelagh arrives when we will eat leftovers from today and knit. AND I do all this by bus and on foot.
