Running Out of Yarn….

 I don’t know about anyone else, but I love looking at crochet projects. I can spend anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour doing this.

I would save the ones I like the best and go back to see if there are directions. One of the best things about this craft is that more than one person may have done the same project, and you can go through as many as you have too to be able to understand the directions to make that project on your own.

I found a project and I couldn’t wait to get started. It took five to six times before I got it right. Then the sad news came, when I had to put it on hold altogether, because of two unfortunate events:

  1. Walmart no longer carried the yarn.
  2. Micheal had the yarn, but for $5.00 and I knew I would need  at least 6 spools of yarn.


I had started a project that must come first and when Caron chunky cakes yarn was on sale I had to go for it.

I have my fingers crossed that Caron simply soft yarn will be on sale next month, because I really want to finish this project.

I really don’t like to stop working on a project I just learned how to make, because I will forget and I will relearn everything. Oh well hopefully next time it won’t take too long….

Listen to my Words…..

Directions should make steps easier to follow, if they are clear, and to the point? 

That statement sounds simple enough, but can they be answered correctly, because people will always do what they want to do even if they were given the right directions.

Example: I was running late for work today, so why not call a lyft. I told the driver where I was standing, the color of my outfit, and to ask me my name.

The driver got about somewhat close to me across the street from me, not even in front of the only Burger King in the area.

I even had to walk towards him, because I was running out of time, and couldn’t wait for another driver. Yes, I got to work on time, and no he didn’t get a tip from me.

(I am grateful we didn’t get hit as he backed up, getting back to the street where he could drive,because he drove into a bus station. (and he didn’t get a ticket)

Sometimes it’s best to follow directions and if you are unsure, ask a question, and then go from there…

Remembering Duncan Macleod

Bored out of my mind today as I stood in the front of the store, supposedly greeting customers and wishing them a farewell greeting as they leave the store.

A young man come in wearing a long grey and black sweater and all of the sudden I was thinking about “Duncan Macleod.”

Oh for anyone who hasn’t heard of Duncan Macleod from the TV show called, “The Highlander” that is where my thoughts sent me.

I had to blink again, because Adrian Paul Hewet had black hair and an English accent that would make you smile. Well, maybe just us (meaning me) females.

Oh well That was a Pleasant Smile….

Still Untangling…

Day four and I am still trying to untangle my yarn. I will never again start a new spool of yarn, without using all of the one I am working on, and NOT throwing it into a bag to be forgotten.

Yarn is for creating something new and Not for making a mess. It takes more time undoing what could have been prevented in the first place.

(taking a deep breath) Time to get back to my mess, because it will not get untangled by itself. I would really like to start on the new project I came up with, but that will have to wait until another time….

A Nice Walk….

I surprised myself by walking 30 mintues today. I was singing and dancing as I listened to gospel in my headphones.

I believe once my tummy started yelling at me “feed me” and making a list what I could make?

The idea of cooking made me close my eyes. Breakfast doesn’t have to be eggs,  because food is food. So, as I started preparing a salad, and I couldn’t stop thinking how I will see a better me one day.

Walking and eating right as I start my day😊
