Sad Day

Yesterday was a difficult day. I received the phone call I have been expecting and dreading at the same time. My dear friend and neighbor passed away early Friday morning. She had been in hospice care and was at home with her husband and 3 of her 4 children. I will miss her. She was like a second mother to me as well as one of my knitting mentors. I would go and visit her and we would talk about sock knitting and various projects. Her oldest daughter and I became quite close during this time. As soon as I learned of Peggy's passing, I cast on a prayer shawl for Mary. I sat with the family and knitted while we talked and reminisced. It helped me to be able to keep my mind occupied with the simple trinity stitch.

Amish Woman on the Information Superhighway

Well, I guess I must be the only knitter who still doesn't have a blog so I have decided to join the 21st century and start one. I have always had great aspirations to keep a journal or diary and I usually do really well for about a week. I still have my diary from when I was a child and I think there are a total of 10 entries in it. Hopefully I will fare better here.

My friends tease me that I must be Amish. I don;t have a cell phone or cable tv. I enjoy knitting , sewing and home canning veggies from our garden. I am not into keeping with the fashion police. I think that clothes should be comfortable, complimentary in color and cut and be your own style, not what someone deems "stylish". Style is a very personal thing.

I am married with 3 grown stepsons and one grand daughter (I married an Old Fart). Its kind of fuinny. My brother became a grandpa in his 40s and I teased him about being old. Well, God was listening because he made me a Grandma at 38! Ha! My children at home are Honey and Sweetie my dogs and MoMo, Sayuri and Itty Bitty my 3 cats.

Well, I am off to knit and rest since I am at home sick today.
