Taking Up the Hubby’s Challenge


Silver Borne (Mercy Thompson, Book 5)Finished the previous book and have begun this one you see here.  I have completely fallen in love with the Mercy Thompson books!  I am caught up in the series and am seriously going to hate to see it end if it ever does.  Not thinking about this.  Not thinking about this.  NOT thinking about this.  LOL!

The pain is better in the left leg.  I believe it is due a lot of prayers by myself, friends, and family, qi gong, and the water exercises that were begun.  The water exercises seems to have helped my arthritic body more than they have helped the nerve pain, but I am taking the good in any form I can receive it these days.  The beautiful summer days are not hurting in the least of course.  Today it is just 84*F and not so humid with beautiful fluffy clouds floating blissfully in the most beautiful of blue skies.

A while ago the Hubby challenged me to knit a book in a year and make every single item in the book fit either me or him out of the yarn of choice of him or me.  Yeah, do you who knit see a problem there?  Well, in an argument that happened this weekend he called me a coward and said I didn’t have the tits for the challenge and that I wasn’t a true knitter.  So, now I ask you – How do you take a pattern that calls for two strands of fingering weight yarn and use worsted weight yarn because that’s what the husband wants and make a sweater that fits?  He says its just numbers.  I’m not at all sure.  Anyone have any advice?


Hubby, Books, Knitting, and Friends Makes Me Happy


The Ghost: A NovelI am in a very strange place at the moment emotionally and physically: the pain is different and quite bad in the left leg these days.  Thankfully the A/C is fixed, thanks Rae, and the pain is better in spots.  So, I am knitting as it hits and I am reading.  Currently I am reading the book you see here and working on dishcloths because I need some in order to get the work around the house out of the way when I feel like doing any work at all that is – I am just taking one day at a time and being as positive as I can.

Sunday was mine and Hubby’s 12 year wedding anniversary.  It was a sad one in some ways because I had  a migraine and so we celebrated it more on Memorial Day, which was yesterday, Monday, than on Sunday.  We went to dinner with some friends and a movie.  We saw Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and, to be honest, we really should have waited until it was out on Netflix or something.  It needed something, like real Persians/Arab actors for instance, and real stunts, not CG.  I won’t get into too much detail for those of you who haven’t seen it – let it suffice to say I was disappointed.

Still, Hubby and I were together, and that’s all that mattered.  We have been together through the good and the bad, and that, I know, is all that really matters.

I love you my darling.
