I hate dieting. Just day 2, and already I'm ready to give up. So I guess I better increase my calories before I lose all semblance of self-control.
I can't believe I forgot to mention that I bought a spinning wheel Sunday, because of course a woolley baby farm must have a spinning wheel. LOL I'm so excited! It's coming from Michigan, and she said she would have it in the mail tomorrow. I can't wait! It is a beautiful Ashford Elizabeth. Rissa is going to have to give me lessons. She spins so beautifully. Of course, I get to take credit for being the Great Enabler, because I introduced her to the weaving and spinning guild.
I've been knitting on my Leaves of Grass socks, and they are coming along. I started on my Casalguidi bag from Inspirations Magazine that I want to finish for seminar. I cut the linen for it 1 inch too short. They had published a correction for the instructions, and I had the correction all printed out and with my stuff. But guess where genius put the correction? At the end, where I forgot all about it. So I cut according to the original instructions, and it is about an inch too short. Oh well, such is life. I'll post a picture after I've made a little more progress.
I talked to Megan tonight. It was wonderful to hear her voice. I am really proud of her, and how well she is doing up in Kentucky. She is working for a daycare, and planning on going to school. They have a scholarship program that will help her. She said she wishes we would move up there. I told her, buy me a farm and I'll be packed and moved tomorrow! :o) It really is pretty country there, with all the horse farms. Plus EGA's headquarters is there, and I would love to see that! I wish it wasn't so far, so I could go see her. If plane tickets didn't cost so much, I would fly up there.
Well, the puppies are waiting for mama to come to bed, so goodnight!
