Week 1 Bernat CAL

My square are larger than they should be but I wouldn't like a tighter fabric.

Bernat Mystery Afghan CAL

Woo hoo. It started yesterday and my yarn came in today. Am using colors that will go with Atlanta Braves for my son. My nephew was drafted by them this summer and Sean's been wanting me to knit him something in those colors! I'm really excited As it will be starting off simple and then get a little more difficult as it goes along. Bernat Softee Chunky.

I hate it, I really do...   A very dear friend, father, christian  is with our Lord right now, in Paradise, where there is no pain, no fear...just peace and calm and our Lords loving arms wrapped around him.  It's great for dear Bill, but I am just so mad at this disease...there are beautiful children and an amazing wife left behind.  Kids that have to grow up without there father's wonderful energy and good teaching.  A little girl who is the same age as I was when my dad died.  I know what my mom struggled with and know Anne will be going through the same things...It's just so hard when you know someone you admire so much will have to go on without her love and helper in life.  I know Bill is in a good place, like my dad and Gerry my fil...but damn it...  Hug your kids, tell them how much you love them...give them those words of wisdom that you want them to know...You never know when the good Lord will need you with Him.  Bill will add some excitement to heaven and will be rarin' to go to keep an eye out for our newest angel in heaven
Here is one of my very first scrapbook pages, years ago, when Christian was their only child...Big Bend...we had the best of times!

Labor Day

Ashley and I had a chance to escape to the lake Sunday afternoon. Mom and Donald were there. Monte, Stacy, and the kids were there. It was great sitting in the dock drinking Lone Star Lite longnecks and visiting. Of course there were a million boats zooming around, rocking the dock in every direction but it was still good. Monte grilled burgers and we had birthday cake to celebrate Donald's birthday. Later Michael and Sean came up after a day of dove hunting at the farm. We spent the night and the weather was nice for sleeping on the porch. Today we tie-dyed tee shirts. Fun fun fun! Heading back after we eat so we'll be ready for school and work tomorrow.
