My new Toy

Knitting is just not the same without my new Ipod Nano. I listen to some great blues, a podcast, or an audiobook while I am working away on my latest project. Driving to work is now much less boring. This little beauty also holds all my photos, contacts, and calendar appointments. I have it skinned with an ice blue case and protective cover over the screen. Unfortunately the screen scratches way too easily without some protection. I don't always like to have earphones on, so i got this great iHome clock radio external speakers. The sound is suprisingly fantastic and full. It even has a sleep timer so my audiobooks can read me to sleep. These two products are a thumbs up in my opinion!

Lunch Munch

Rylie is now in Kindergarten. She is doing well and is rewarded each day with a "Bull Smiley" if she behaves and is respectful to her friends and teachers. When she accumulates 10 "bull smileys" she can invite anyone she choses for a special lunch in her classroom. I had the privilege of being her guest today in the "Lunch Munch" program. I visited her school, teachers and even got to watch them play on the playground. I really loved spending the time with her.

Welcome new "Grandkitty" Daisy!

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful!

The Guest Room is Done!

After much work, painting, cleaning, etc, I can now say one room of our multiroom makeover is done. Have a look! This guest room used to be a family room until Bill and I transformed it. We are also repainting and remodeling the living room, dining room, "mamaw's sewing room", and the new family room, formerly the "basement". More pics will be coming. One thing I did learn from all the painting with my loving husband of 30 years.....never again. The marriage did survive, but we had a couple of rough weeks. We love each other, just don't let us paint together. Why the trouble you ask? Well look at it this way......I am a bit picky with the details in any paint situation, and my wonderful husband is a type B, easy going , and ok with that big drip on the wall person. If we could just meet in the middle, painting might not be so traumatic. We don't dare wallpaper. That was a "never again" task from the 80's.
