Sunday, down and out.

Here I sit in my recliner.Sharing it with my computer and the cat. My gout has flared up, and I am not going anywhere I really don't need to. Gout is a funny thing most people think you get from any rich foods, it's a build up of uric acids in the joints and causes crystals to form. Did you know that stress along with things like coffee and soda can also cause it? Me neither, mine came as a result of a unpleasant experience of blood clots in the bladder caused by radiation to such area.Uric, urine back up. No more said. hurts like having a 2lb jelly jar fall on your foot repeatedly.
 The cat has moved, too much room being taking up by feet to suit his taste, calling DD to take said cat off of kitchen counter. He knows he isn't suppose to be up there.Never stops him though.Hubby is teaching the engraver a new language, Thai, a company requested some nameplates/tags for their machines.Should be interesting translating it in to the required commands needed.
   On the knitting front, working on some things for the Farmer's market and cleaning out the garage. Meg wants to use it  for her car.Okay with me it's getting everything out of there. I am going to have to call our recycling man have him come and pick up some of the things. Can't wait for spring, it's been a strange winter, and next week is our January thaw, weather is suppose to be in the 40's. the February's cold  blast.
  Talking about a garden and setting some flowers in the yard. see what this year brings.Oh with cleaning out the garage is an area we can set up the knitting machine and have space to leave a long table up for crafting .
Stopping for now will pop in later. ttfn,

R.I.P. David Beckett

On a sad note , my cousin David Beckett passed away on Christmas Day, doing what he loved , directing his church choir. His funeral will be Thursday January 5, 2012 , at 10:00am at Sacred Heart Parish of Ocean Beach In San Diego Cali. He will be sadly missed. His beautiful voice , his wit and his wisdom. He leaves behind a   daughter , Meryn Beckett. Please think of his family during this time. Meryn will be graduating from the Boston Conservatory of Music this Spring.


Sure doesn't seem like Monday, more like a Sunday. Work tomorrow and Library for Mary which are Monday things, not Tuesday. We have had a few days of windy, cold weather , not much snow to speak of. The wind chill got down as far as 5 above 0. Tuesday promises to be warmer and not so windy. It's a good thing because I need to go to Arlington to look at a some bookcases and office chairs that someone has put on free cycle. I hopefully will come home with a office chair and a book case, giving chuck back his office chair and a bookcase for my knitting and craft books.
  The Green Bay Packers won against the Detroit Lions and So far the Badgers are holding their own against the Oregon Ducks in the Rose Bowl.At present they are tied.
   Finished the Parisian slouch hat and working on some matching gauntlets, a Christmas present gone crazy.Have some what cleaned up my craft area,(bedroom) Now I am sharing it with a cat, who is in heat, poor Spazzy, (we will take her to get spade soon.) She has gone in heat more times last year than she has in the previous 3years combined.Time to finish up supper dishes and settle down to finish current project.Ducking on out. TTFN.
