1.  My daughter turned 21 Monday.  It was the first time we haven't seen each other on her birthday.

2.  I'm in a sock-knitting mode right now, with orders for 4 adult pair and 2 baby pair.

3.  The socks order came with specific color requests, which meant I had to go through all my sock yarn.  I had NO idea I had that much.

 4.  I have hypothyroidism, and have been prescribed thyroid hormones as of Tuesday morning.  Hopefully, this will help some with my lethargy, headaches and weight.

5.  We've been having daily rounds of thunderstorms, many pretty bad.  I don't mind them, but a couple of the animals hide themselves away, not to be seen for a while.

6.  I've been drinking lots of tea lately.  The rainy weather gives me sinus headaches, and warmth makes them better.

7.   A honeysuckle vine has begun growing through my huge gardenia bush.  The smelll you when walk  outside is divine.

8.  Going through some papers yesterday, I ran across last year's Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick brackets.  Not too terribly long until this year's contests will be getting underway.

9.  A former KH winner now has his wine for sale online.

10.  Now that I'm only feeding myself, I can buy all the Tostitos Hint of Lime chips I want, without hearing complaints about them.


  1. I love your list. I have thyroid issues too. !!!
    Its a happy diagnosis.......getting it in line usually really helps you feel great again.

  2. I have been on thyroid medications for years now - occasionally it has to be adjusted, but most of the time, things are just fine.

    I was thinking about The Knitters Hunk the other day, but couldn't remember when it happens ... :-)

Not Really in My Color Wheel

10.  Red There isn't a lot of red stuff in my life.  Never has been.  I remember exactly three red tops I've had in my life, maybe a couple of skirts with red print.  My one red fashion statement has been my red cowboy boots, modeled after my Daddy's red patent leather ones with the gold toe tips.

Red just doesn't suit my coloring.  Mama could wear it.  Hannah can wear it.  It's just never been a big part of any of my color selection life.  I gravitate toward purples and blues and grays, some green.  I avoid orange at all costs.  At least red doesn't awaken that kind of loathing in me.

Guess Free Association is our best plan, then.

And you?  What does red do for you?


9 days until you can submit Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick nominations!

I am late to a lot of parties.  I scarcely ever go to movies, so by the time I watch a film via streaming, or borrow a DVD from Netflix, everyone's fever has come and gone.  Since I read non-fiction almost exclusively, novels that everyone else has long since read and fawned over don't often appear on my radar.  Hence,
If memory serves, Kathy's daughter talked about this book in one of her reading posts over the last few months.  Briton read it long ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it, and it is his copy that I've borrowed and am just sailing through. What an engaging read.  Most of you have probably already read it;  did you like it this much?

For Those About to Nominate. . .
