Ah Baroque! Those were the days!
Be kind.....
If someone insults you when you're walking down the street, what do you do?

Keep on walking - they're either mentally ill or looking for a fight or both.  Why put myself in harm's way? If they just want to insult me, so what?

Have you ever tried to change yourself for someone you were in a relationship with (or wanted to be in a relationship with)? Did it work?

How Maryland Are You?
Your Result: You're 100% Maryland

You have erected a shrine to Ray Lewis in your living room, complete with a "BELIVE 'HON" bumper sticker on your car. You can name every county in the state and refer to Howard County as "Ho Co." The second you step over the stae line, you feel weird, and need a Natty Bo.

You're 20% Maryland
You're 80% Maryland
You're 40% Maryland
You're 60% Maryland

Seeing if I can upload some pictures of works in progress:

First, here's the beginning of a sweater for Ruby that I hope will fit her when the weather gets cool. It's in a totally washable acrylic yarn and I think the colors will look good on her. Madison's is next (I already knit her a sweater last winter - it's probably shrunk in the wash by now, LOL:)
It's fun having grandchildren to knit for - the knitting goes faster because the sizes are smaller and they are so forgiving of my errors!

This is my first attempt at crocheting a vest. It is out of Egyptian cotton I scored at a LYS in Rockville Centre, NY while visiting there this summer. I loved the color. There probably won't be enough to finish it, so I may have to hold off until I find more of the same her at home or try to redo as a striped vest. But it's been a good learning experience.

The next two are of a cotton sweater I'm knitting from one of Elsebeth Lavold's pattern books. I just love this pattern. I'm hoping the fit is right. Am using larger needles and the largest pattern size. Hopefully it won't accentuate the negative, LOL:)

Finally, here's a scarf that just needs the fringe. It's a recycled silk yarn from saris spun by women in Nepal - a Fair Trade item or I would like to think I wouldn't have bought it. It was a spur-of-the-moment purchase while I was at the Sheep and Wool Festival in May. It is a good thing to venture outside of the usual from time to time.

I'm embarassed to say that these are not the only WIPs I have, but they're the ones I'm going to finish this month or bust:)
Well, back to work......

Well, John has been hurting now all weekend! He went to the ER Friday afternoon when he realized he was in too much pain to walk on his right leg! They tested him for blood clots and took some blood and so far, the real serious stuff has been ruled out. Of course, the only painkillers he has are the OTC stuff. I have something, but it's not appropriate for what he needs. Poor guy can't work, can't sleep, can't get comfortable, so he's alternated his time between sitting downstairs and watching "chick flicks" and trying to sleep in his bed. Neither is working, so I think it's off to see the doc Monday AM if they can squeeze him in.
Have gotten virtually nothing done - and it's two of our kids' birthdays! Aarrggghhh....
We ended up just giving them money - how thoughtful, right?
Hopefully we'll have a good answer to the question of his pain by tomorrow! Otherwise, he's going to have to look at disability! His jobs all have him on his feet.
Ah life.....
