My Weekend!


Good Morning! I thought I would do a little collage of my weekend. We went out to dinner to celebrate my birthday and my son in law, Jamiel's birthday. Our birthdays are about a week apart. Yes, I do have a birthday this week and no I do not dread them one bit. I'll talk more about that later in the week. Anyway, back to the collage. The top left photo is of me and my sweetie and the one right below that is of my sweetie and our youngest Christina. And of course there is Maddie (our granddaughter) and her Mommy and Daddy. I love the photo of Maddie eating her ice cream, she just had to do it herself like a big girl. Our son Jimmy and Allison couldn't make it. And the other photos are ones I took at the park yesterday. The collage is a little smaller than I thought it would be, so click on it to see it bigger. We had just a little taste of Spring here yesterday and people flocked outside after being cooped up for weeks. It was wonderful! The park is on the Ohio River and that is the water you see in the photos. I loved it, walking and listening to my new Point of Grace CD on my IPod. If you have not gotten this CD, go get it or download it to your IPod because it is WONDERFUL! Anyway, have a great Monday. I am heading back to knitting class tonight but I kind of think it might not be my thing. But I am gonna try. Maybe it'll just click tonight. LOL

Happy birthday, Joan! I'll have to check out the CD you mentioned. Great collage!

Don't give up on knitting yet. It will get easier and feel "more natural" the more you practice. Hang in there because I really think you'll love it. There are so many cute things you can knit for Maddie!

Hi Joan! Hope you have a wonderful birthday this week! I love the collage!

The warm weather was in these parts yesterday, but today we are back to cold and snow.

Happy birthday Joannie, and Jamiel, too...though I think I got his in last time...I hope your birthday was just a wonder of all wonders...knitting? KNITTING? I used to love to knit...but now my fingers make more noise than the needles...so it's mainly x stitch these days...very little of that, too though...keep on knitting!!!
hugs
Sandi

Happy Birthday Joan. Its sounds like you had a wonderful celebration.
I found knitting wasn't my thing either. My mother in Law tried to teach me but I couldn't get the yarn off the needles. I just knitted much too tight and I actually hated reading all the directions so I gave all my yarn away to someone who loved it. My poor MIL was so disappointed. She was a fabulous seamstress and could really knit up a storm. the kids and I still have wonderful blankets she did for us many years ago.
