Getting to the point where I need vacuum and dust the dining room, need to take down the lights on the fan and wash them. Need to wear a mask because of all the dust. That's the thing I hate to do the most is dust.

Sunday night ,monday nightmare

Sunday wasn't a very good day, I felt terrible ill. Ended up in the emergency room about 1:30am poor hubby, sometimes I don't know how he puts up with me, anyway found out for certain now I have a flair up of gout, and a nasty bladder infection, elevated sugar . After being given medication, we came home, I still feel ill, have "gotten sick" twice(there isn't a nice way to say puke your guts out) today and can't keep anything stronger than tea and toast down so far. Must say foot pain from the gout has gone down.
I am in the dog house again about the gal in the apartment over the garage , I told her again she is to be out by the 30 of September. I have typed up a short letter. You think some people would respect someones else property when given a chance. Things broken, cat crap everywhere, just plain disrespectful , filthy housekeeping, just to name a few of the things.
On another note we didn't get the clothes, she still wants the trampoline.The Wool and Sheep festival in Jefferson is coming up soon , we may be able to run it to her then as Fort Atkinson is near Jefferson. Looking forward to going as we missed last year, by we I mean Mary and myself.
I am looking forwarded to going, it's fun being with others who understand the need to knit.

Thursday , busy busy, busy

This week we have been busy at the manse, cleaning , but more on that later, Rob has been decided that he wants the door on his room, instead of blanket he has been using, we have the doors, when we remodeled the upstairs , the only one who got their door replaced was Mary. I have waiting forever for mine and Rob is willing to put them back on, yeah!!!
Knitting has come to a stand still as I am using my talent of being a weight and using my feminine whiles on the guys at the lumber yard, right, what feminine whiles!, the weight part I can do.
Waiting to hear from a lady in Fort Atkinson , on the trampoline and a bag of clothes. She wants the trampoline I want the clothes.
School starts Wed. September 1st.more later.

new tires

Well we couldn't get the tire patched, so new tires after all, took it to our favorite mechanic and was told that it was not possible but the tire on the other side should be replaced too. There was a bald area with the radials poking through it.kinda scary. So now I have two new tires on my van. I feel a little safer,and a little poorer. The other tires where replaced last year. Rob came through with changing the tires and such. We let hubby rest and managed this on our own.
On another note Mary and I had a good haul at the farmers market, early apples and plums, tomatoes, both green and ripe. Some golden potatoes and onions. As usual had the tomatoes for supper with the onions, and two of the plums , they are of the small variety tasty though.
bedtime for me very tired. Chuck's vacation ends today, back to the grindstone tomorrow.

Friday,quiet morning

Started out this morning with a flat tire on the van, Don't want to wake hubby up, he stayed up all night just wasn't sleepy. Son doesn't seem to interested in it, thinks I should get new tires. really now.Please show were the money tree is please.
I think I will sit and knit and knit and sit keeping that left leg elevated.Much work left to do on a number of projects.Poncho , baby blanket, log cabin afghan,sweater, socks and a few other things. It would be nice just to sit and finish each project. Maybe I will. To the billy blue blazes with house work. (at least for today), I'll try to stop by and let you know whats happening.

tuesday ramblings

It is another beautiful day, slight breeze, cool temps and partly cloudy. Chuck gave me a very nice anniversary present, a sony walkman, Mp3 player, 16G, has FM radio and can play videos or movies, plus music he put his book on there for me. IT's a snazzy red color. NICE!!--Dinner was from Pizza Hut, My gout is acting up and it was nice not to have to cook. It really hurts.
Back to the knitting, will probably be back later to day

Quiet day ,sunny and cool

Some people would be better off not to wake me up on Sunday morning for something as trivial as wanting cigarettes. I am not sorry you have this addiction which you must feed, at the expense of everything else. It's your damn fault you have this in the first place, don't blame anyone but your self. and don't give me this it eases my pain. when in fact it makes it worse, I realize the Oxygen to that thing you call a brain is sadly lacking. You have no excuse for the crap you dish out to everyone. Grow up and take responsibility for your life. Nobody will do it for you.

Sorry it had to be said and that is that for now.

The day is gorgeous, it's cool and sunny with a nice breeze. The upcoming week looks great, and I am looking forward to some time with my family and some time with my hubby. Tomorrow is our 17th anniversary. Hubby says he is getting me a laser guided mop bucket. Will see. I got him a 19.2 volt drill with additions, came with 2 batteries, drill, work light, circular saw, and a reciprocating saw. Craftman of course. I am hoping to do some knitting tonight we will have to see what else happens later.

Friday rain

This Friday was a winner. Mary and I went into Madison to drop off the needles and such to Carla.We waited at the Goodwill store and nothing happen, It rain and it poured, thunder boomers and all.I gave her a call, poor kid, her daughter injured her arm at the elbow, she said 2 times this week at urgent care.Oh yes we dropped off the knitting supplies at her home. The tornado siren went off,her SO came out,and said it was heading east toward Cambridge.
We than went to the Frugal muse, I found a book that I lent Cathy and she managed to loose in the Blaine fiasco, Don't ask. It was signed by the author.
It's getting late and I am finding it hard to breathe, time to rest.See ya later.

"I solomnly swear I am upto no good"

Very early morning, up at 5:30 really 5:00 , Got hubby off to work , rested for a bit did some office work, played Kris's delivery service and than did shopping all by 7:30am By 8:45 we had the brush and trees out of the back yard. They are on the curb waiting for the guys with the chipper to come around. Seems like the recent rain also had some bad effects on the trees in what used to be the mobile home park. One of the larger trees split and came crashing down.
Found that school for Mary starts on Sept.1, they sent a brand new Hp computer for her to use, by mistake. It will be sent back. Mary is currently cleaning her room , good, no more yelling on my part. Mary has a nice toshiba with a bigger screen.
Found someone to share my surplus knitting needles with. Her name is Carla. Back to knitting must knit to calm my "savage soul", I knit so I will not kill my neighbor. I am up to no good!!
really !!

Tuesday hot muggy

The temp ,is 84 degrees, real feel 101 degree. Nasty!!!.
We are in line for some thunderstorms to night. I hope we get some relief.
Rob and I have been clearing out behind the house of weeds and some small trees. Seems the best time to do this is in the morning before the bugs know you are there.
Knitting wise I am working on a baby blanket getting ready to do some serious work on Mary's poncho which is done in Bernat Solo neuveau Red and black yarn together, the discontinued the yarn , but I was able to get enough for Mary's poncho and few skeins extra. $ years on that Man I am a slow knitter, I think it the repeats of stockingnet that gets to me.
Well back to knitting , and cleaning up messes Mary not feeling to good I think she has heat exhaustion. Push the fluids! and away we go!

Tuesday, sorting needles

Well I said I was going to sort my stash of knitting needles, Had to stop at Ganser's and pick up rubber bands so I can put the pairs together. I didn't realize just how many pairs of double pointed knitting needles I do have. You think I've been socks and mittens for ever! I wish!!
It's a hot and humid day, will do cleaning tonight. I read some of my back posts only to realize I have been working on Mary's poncho for going on 4 years, ouch!
That's the incentive I need to get it done. Talk to you later.

monday blues

Monday , August 2,2010,
Feel kinda crappy today, asthma getting to me, finding it hard to do too much. Did manage to get some dishes and cleaning done in the kitchen.But I am so tired now. I am going to get all my knitting needles together to find out just what exactly I do have. I know I have a large assortment of aluminum from the time I started knitting in 1969 , (my, that was a long time ago)to now I have acquired some from garage sales, auctions and Madison free cycle. Lots of knitting to do, so far behind. Kind of disheartening. What was that song" Mondays morning blues always get me down" or some thing like that.
