What I've been up to.

  • At the first of November I had meetings two days in a row that I brought food to.  The first one I made a breakfast casserole and breakfast burritos.  The second one I provided the main dish which was spaghetti.
  • The next day I went to the local annual Amish auction and had lunch.  I didn't get a number or buy anything except lunch.  There was a good crowd and it looked like there was a nice variety of items for sale. 
  • Jeff and I flew to Arizona for a training class Jeff was taking for work.  Everything was paid for except my plane ticket.  We were there for a week.  During the election so we voted early before we left.  I had not flown in 45 years so I was a bit apprehensive but obviously it turned out good because I'm still here.
  • While in Arizona I worked on some craft projects and had time with two different sister in laws and my mother in law.  Its always nice to spend time with them.  One sister in law and I took a road trip to a neat mining town and looked around.  It was neat.  The town is called Jerome.
  • I have mastered the virus stitch and am making a baby blanket.  I had been trying to get that pattern down and after printing the instructions out and watching and following along a you tube video I was able to figure it out.  I want to make a shawl one day with that pattern.
  • The weather apparently was cool, as in the 70's while we were gone.   It warmed right back up though as soon as we got home.
  • I managed to Skype with my phone every day I normally do with my grandson and great niece to listen to them read.
  • My Amish friend called my yesterday to see if I wanted a fresh turkey for thanksgiving.  I said yes of course.  I had thought it was too late to order one.  Yippie, fresh home grown turkey again this year.
  • That's all I can think of right now.  It doesn't seem like much when I write it down but I sure have been keeping busy.
