Patience is a virtue!

I was invited to join a swapbot swap. I joined I was impatient and kept whining about not hearing from my partner and today in my mailbox was the kit! Oh, I feel like such a boob!!NIna of Norway, please accept my apologies. I am such a putz!!!!!
Okay, so whats with the photos. Well, try to share your cameras, 3 of them, and the photo cards and the photo reader with your 2 girls-no it's not priceless it's a pain in the ass! They lost my 1 GB card and that is MY CARD!!! It has all of my knit kits, sp kits knitting, you get it- it's mine, MINE MINE MINE!!!!
Now I know why my mother would get so mad when her stuff was missing. They have tons of their own stuff-more than me. So now that I have finished bitching, I will go out and buy a big card and hide it with my new camera.
By the way, The photo is one of the "baby" kitty, Kim. She is the one Daughter number 1 brought home and I told her she had to go.She is almost 2!
I am supposed to post a pic of my current work in progress for SP10-So I started a pair of ankle socks from the Knitting a day calendar and just can not get the heel flap sock down at all. Dianne, can you help? Yours look so good!
Take care all.
It is summer in Vermont!!!!

I have been tagged, by Leslie....this is what she says I have to do:
Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write on their blogs 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and need to read your blog.

seven random facts:

1. I am the oldest of 5 children. Both my mom and dads familys had 5 children, as does my husbands-we do not!

2. Irene, my grandmothers sister taught me to knit when I was 5.

3. All 3 of my daughters can knit and sew!

4. I am a sun worshipper and would love to live on the water.

5. I love to read, but rarely find the time. Books on tape have filled the void

6. I bake the best apple pie.

7. I have broken my nose or had it broken 4 times!
Thanks Leslie, I have never done one of these. I don't have 7 people to send this to, so sadly it will end here.

I have been knitting. I found Bob Marley socks and ripped back the ones I was knitting. I am on the heel flap. But alas, that is all.
We finished our last store inventory yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I may still be able to use my eyes again. I promise pics at next post,. I am going to break out the new camera and give here a try. Hopefully with at least one sock to show, or a started Cece.
The baby kitty has decided to raid my "Friends chair" and daily she steals yarn out of it to take upstairs. Friends chair- the ones Joey and Chandler got. the lazy boys with the built in coolers and massagers. Yep, we have 2 of them-in black also! Only 1 came to the new house! It has deep pockets in the side and I put my yarn in them. The kitty squishes inside and pulls out partial balls or even something I am working on and drags them upstairs! It is cute, but what a mess.

Favorite place to knit!

So as you can see, I am a beach girl. I love to sit and knit in the sun. I take my knitting on every sunny vacation we go to. Jamaica, Florida and especially Las Vegas.This photo is of my favorite beach in the whole world-Negril, Jamaica. Thus my email Everyone asks me if I am from there! I wish.Natives always stop and ask what I am making. They crochet hats while they walk on the beach. I will have to get a photo next time we visit!
My husband gambles all day and I sit by the pool and knit while I listen to music or a book. It is paradise. No one bothers you and it is as peaceful as it gets. I just love Knitting!!!

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you all had a Happy Mother's Day. I am glad it is sunny in Vermont. I wish it was warmer, but hey it is only May. So we finished the 2nd of our three stores for inventory. YAY!!! Only one more to go. It is an all day affair and yesterday when I took off my glasses I was crosseyed for about 1/2 hour. Scary. I would not like to be on the computer imputting data for 12 hours straight. I commend any of you who do.No knitting,,,wha wha wha. My eyes are just to tired. I have to get my SP10 partners box ready to ship for friday. It will be her first from me as she was reassigned to me. She likes to knit socks so I am sure I will be able to please her. That is all for know. Graduation is in one month for my daughter and then she is off to Hawaii for 3 weeks> What a lucky girl.
Take Care and smile often.

May in Vermont!!!

The sun is shining and people are wearing shorts...well, it is still cool, but you have to make summer last here in Vermont! Our 20th Anniversary was April 22nd. I was on a plane coming back from Baylor and Hubby was home with the youngest.
I got him this:
It is the best expresso machine ever.He just took it out of the box. It was TOO EXPENSIVE! He bought me a beautiful diamond necklace and earrings-not my taste, and he did not pick them out. SO I exchanged them and get 2 pairs of earrings and enough credit to more than pay for the machine. Happy man and new earrings. No knitting, but I did buy a magazine with 2 patterns that I hope to make. That counts, right?
Any way, I got a new camera, but after reading all the reviews I am taking it back and exchanging it for a LUmix DMC-TZ3 check it out at Best Buy. It is awesome! I have a Lumix already but it is an SLR and I don't seem to use it very often because of the bulkyness, It takes great pictures, but!
So no pictures of the green Vermont. just check out Norma and her great pictures.
Inventory tomorrow for store 1. 2 more to go. Then the warehouse, and maybe my life will be back....
Thanks for stopping by.
