Daylight Savings Begins

Hi everyone....did you move your clock forward Saturday night?  I did, but did not want to...this is my least favorite time change because I loose an hour of sleep (I like it better when I get an extra hour of sleep grinning).

How was your week?  Mine was great, even though I spent almost all of it at a conference last week....I have TONS to share with you!

Here is a picture on my drive to Grapevine, TX.

My room...I was very comfortable, it was nice!

I also ate too well......I had Shrimp Scampi, then Chicken Fried Ribs (that was a different one to me), and of course a juicy ribeye.....I think I gained 10 lbs!

Well, I paid for all that over eating on Friday and Sunday....I mowed my yard.  Back yard was done on Friday (it was rough because the grass was pretty wet...but it needed it)...and the front yard was done yesterday.

What else did I do?  Oh, well I knitted!

I worked on my socks.....

I worked on Southern Skies

and I worked on my Secret Project

These 3 are pretty much the only 3 things I will be working on in March....I need to get them done!

Oh, and I knit some nunchucks for little Ninja!

I got my Birthday Present from Jaime...I LOVE these new GREEN Dyakcraft Needles!  Thanks Babe!

I also got a new Green Bag set from Darlene....these dogs are so cute!  I am going to use my green needles with my new green bag to make Avix (as soon as I finish these three projects for March)!

I also got my Hard Ass yarn in....I really love this yarn.

Then I got my fixed Magical Wand Progress Keeper....I was really hoping that Melissa from Knitty by Nature would have done something extra for me having paid shipping to ship back the broken one (that broke in less than 24 hours) and while she did give me a coupon code for free shipping, I am pretty sure she gives this coupon code to everyone just to reorder.

That  is really all I have knitting wise.....

I do have a few other things that went on this week......I did have some stitching go loose on my new the guys came on Friday to fix it...he actually re-sewed was very interesting to watch him

Oh, while in Grapevine, I went by a German Deli

It was a great little store....I went in and browsed (and may have bought some chocolate and gummies) and I saw so many things I remembered from Germany (and some things I did not remember).

Next door to this German Deli was an Albertson's grocery store....Now, this is important because when at my Dad's birthday partly last weekend, my niece asked me to make her some Jerky I used to always make for her birthday (March 21st).   I of course told her I would....However, we do not have a grocery store that will cut the meat thin enough....but Albertson's does cut the meat thin I went in and bought all their Beef Round Bottom and had it sliced.

Then, I made jerky all weekend....I took all three bags to my parent's house for my sister to be able to pick up from there.

I kept a little for me and Paige... While cooking it, it makes the whole house smell like Jerky......when Paige brought Antonio over on Friday, she walked in the house and said "Awwwwww, the smell of my childhood!"  LOL!

When I went to my mom and dad's house, my mom said she ruined the socks I gave her......nope, not ruined...I just need to fix one heel :)

Well, that is all I have.....I hope you all have a great are some pictures I snagged from a lady in my online knitting group (Lone Star State Knitters)....almost all my pictures are pictures she has shared with us.

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!!!!!
