Where did the warmer weather go?  I need to remember this next year when Mother Nature tosses us a week of super warm weather.  It's just a tease and to not be surprised when once again we have freezing temps.  Not that I mind the seasons - I don't!  I just was enjoying the warmth and the promise of lovely outdoor times! 

It feels as if I haven't blogged in a very long time.  Oddly, not working finds me less and less behind a computer and in some ways that is a good thing.  But I do miss catching up with all of you!  I love reading about your lives and your crochet adventures and everything else. 

My back is doing well.  In fact today is the 4th day I have been pain free no matter what I do.  I have noticed one thing -- I need to make my back stronger.  I don't know if it was weak before I injured it or if the injury weakened it.  Either way I am working on making my lower back stronger.  Don't worry - I am not working my back.  I am still taking it very easy but I am concentrating on my core which in the past has really helped me with balance and strength. 

I have been crocheting - lots of dishcloths.  I took a basket of them into our local diner and just gave them to the regulars and the owner and the cook.  They all loved them.  In fact the cook's daughter has asked me to make her two sets of matching dishcloths/towels.  She said price was no factor - she just wanted them done.  So that's kind of a nice feeling.  :)

Sadly my Dear Aunt is not doing well. She has RA and it is getting the best of her.  It's been hard on the family especially my Mom.  My Aunt is the youngest and her and my Mom are very close.  It's just the two of them left and my Mom is feeling the pain of possibly losing her this time.  She has an infection in her bloodstream they can't seem to get control of and they believe she has heart failure due to the RA.  Prayers welcome! 

I hope this finds you all doing well!!! 


  1. So sorry your Aunt is in a bad way, losing some one you love is never easy. Glad your back is doing better, nice job on the dish cloths, I bet everyone was thrilled to get one.
    Happy Weekend,

  2. I think it's great that you are enjoying your time off and that you got an order for dishcloths and towels! Word of mouth will spread! I am sorry about your aunt, I know it's difficult, I will be praying for all of you. (((HUGS)))
