Where has the time gone?

I can't believe it has been two months since I have posted anything. Wow, where has the time gone. I have been busy, although not using my shuttle! By accident I picked up my knitting needles and have been knitting up a storm. Mainly dishcloths because they are fast and easy. As my sister, Kate said the other day, "They are instant gratification." In about 8 hours you have a completed dishcloth. Now what to do with them, Hummm. I think I will open open an Etsy shop and see if I can sell any. Hopefully I can and support all of my habits.

For Christmas I purchased a new eReader. I love it. I can download several books and have one already to start as soon as I finish one. I have always loved to read but this makes is so much easier no waiting for a book to come in the mail or having to run to the library. Just go online, purchase and download and I am ready to go. Will be great when I return to Alaska next month. No more hunting for a book at one of those pricey bookstalls in the airports. I purchased mine from Barnes & Noble, the newest greatest eReader on the market (according to them) but really it is great. You can see one on the website, it is called a "nook". Amazon also has an eReader, but so far I am liking this one just fine.

No baby yet! Karyn is doing fine and getting restless waiting for the baby to arrive. She wasn't very happy when the doctor moved her due date back a week from 1-25 to 1-29. We try to keep her focus and tell her babies come when they are ready no matter what. At least her husband is home to help her out and run to the hospital when the time comes. They have decided not to move to town early, so it will be at least an hour drive from home to the hospital. Hope the baby isn't in to much of a hurry!

I will be going back to Alaska 2-16 for a month. Yeah, I get to play with a new baby. While I am gone my sister, Sherry, will be comming home to look after Dad and Martha for at least a couple of weeks. Sure am glad she will be here I won't worry about him to much. She is bringing her daughter and two granddaughters with her. Will be a houseful for Dad and Martha but they are looking forward to it. Bella is 2 1/2 and Annaleigh is almost 4 months.

I am taking lots of crafty things with me including my shuttles. So hopefully will have lots to do while I am there, that is if I can leave the baby alone long enough to work on something.

Good luck with that last thought! Of course, new babies do sleep a lot, so you may have time to tat a little! Glad to hear from you after your long absence. Welcome back!

Thanks for the welcome back. I will try not to be gone so long. Have to get those shuttle back out though.
