Happy Birthday Nancy!

Ohhh, it's a tailgaiting dream come true! I don't think I've ever posted a picture of myself on my blog so here I am. My friends Bev & Ken and Grace bought me this "tent" that I've been wanting for so long. What you see is a real porta potty. We can bring this for tailgaiting at Nascar races (Mom, you don't have to pee in the woods anymore), football games and even for camping. My darling husband bought the 5 gallon bucket along with the snap on toilet seat. We're ready for the summer! When I got home, my husband had put this together and ran toilet paper down the stairs from the front door all the way to the "potty" as a surprise.

My home computer hard drive crashed. :-( It's not good. I called Dell yesterday 4/26. My warantee expired on 4/23. What the crap?? Anyway... I'm waiting for a replacement CD of Windows and then we'll try to get it back up and running with the Extended Warantee that I had to purchase so if the hard drive is in fact fried, then it will be replaced by Dell.

Computers. Can't live with 'em.... can't live with 'em.

2nd sock syndrome OH MY!

I simply won't have it! I've already started my 2nd sock so I can have my very own first set of knitted socks. I can't wait to wear them both and feel the warm fuzzies between my toes. Stay tuned for the finished product and for my next trick... I may try to make a 2nd pair of socks with some beautiful koigu that my friend Susan gave me!

Completed below is the Mason Dixon bathmat. It's so soft on your feet! It's already in one of my bathrooms and it looks great. I think I may make one again!
Okay-so as promised I said I was going to try to make my very first sock this year. I started it yesterday with my knitting group at work. We're teaming up to get it done together since none of us has ever knitted a sock before. I'm hoping I get get through the tough parts and really get it done this time. Wish me luck!
