Tomorrow is October?

Can you believe that tomorrow is October?  I can't....but it is true!

I really do not have a lot this week.....since I mostly only worked on my Torbellino.  I finished one sleeve.

I ordered the 2nd skein of yarn for my Phoenix....and decided I wanted the yellow on the out to burgundy, then go from burgundy to I am gonna frog my initial start....and I restarted last night.

I got another new Bags By Awesomegrannie XL bag that I LOVE....such pretty witches!

Lastly, I got some new Harry Potter Pajamas!

That is all I have......have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Jackson having friend over

Hey everyone...How are you?  I am doing great....I got the new iPhone 11 Pro Max and I love it! 

Jackson's friend, Kayda (I have no clue if I am spelling that right), came over...and they played.

Jax let me take a picture of him with my new phone

My longhorns beat OSU and my sister, nephew and brother in law were at the game!

My parents are off to Costa Rica.....I hope they are having a great time!  My aunt has already posted some pics on FB I will share with you!

I got a new AMAZING bag from Darlene.....Christmas Gnomes!  I LOVE IT!!!!

The only thing I worked on all week is my Torbellino Sweater....and yesterday I realized that I was missing 37 rows on my spreadsheet so just when I thought I was caught up, I am behind again!

And I am still exercising.....proud of me?  I am! 

That is all I have......Have a great week!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Sweater Burnout?

Hey everyone!  How are you?  I am doing great!  However, I feel like I am on a bit of a sweater burnout.......I finally got to divide for sleeves on my Torbellino....but I am tired of I need a break.

I got a new hook from Furls from a great friend, Tammy....she knits/crochets with us at is a rose gold/white one!

So, I used it to work on my Havana!

And then decided it would look great working on the Hugs and Kisses Blanket I started in July of 2018!

I also decided to crochet on Paige's Blanket....I only have like 4 stripes left so I really should just finish it!

The last knitting related item is the start of new socks for Karl....the last ones were too small!

As far as other things going on.....Paige got her car back....finally (which means I got mine back)!

After I got mine back, I found a ring that my mom gave to Paige years ago stuck under the seat.....she was thrilled I found it....she thought she lost it at the bowling alley on her birthday (the one on my ring finger below)!

During the week I made Banana bread and French Bread......I love bread!

and I made Darlene's favorite meal......Risotto!

Here is her lunch for today!

I ordered the new iPhone 11 Max Pro.....I cannot wait to get it!

Oh, and Antonio had golf this is not the greatest picture since I had to zoom so far.....but maybe with my new iPhone, the next picture will be better (We'll see)!

Have a great week everyone!

Sweaters, Sweaters, and Sweaters

Hi everyone!  How are you?  I am okay....ready for fall (it is just around the corner).

I have really been into sweaters lately....I finished Paige's Birthday Surprise Sweater.

Now I finished my weekender

Decided to really double down on my Torbellino....

And restarted Paige's Wallaby

Those are the only things I knit on this week.  Other than that, you can probably see I got my nails done.....I have been thinking of doing this for a long time and finally did it....I love them!

I had Grandparents day with Antonio and with Alexxis.  Antonio had a couple of friends whose grandparents could not make it, so we took an extra picture!

Kayta (the neighbors dog) came for a visit.....

And I took Jax over to visit Bella at my parent's house.....

Antonio played golf with my dad....and he usually has a ton of dirt under his nails and my dad gets onto him for this time he cleaned his nails proud of him

Lastly, I ran 2 miles on Saturday.....on my, these were 12 min miles, but that is faster than my 17 min walking mile I usually do.  I was pretty proud of myself.

So this week I have exercise/weight loss (or not) pics for you!  Have a great week!
