Time Warp

Okay, I got lost in time again. It was so bad this time that Pookie told me today, "you have got to post on your blog." So here I am. I have been busy with knitting for the Children's Hospital of Boston. I have slow down recently as my shoulder has been giving me problems. But hopefully soon I will be back knitting up a storm.

I also set myself goals for this year. One was to get healthier, first step was to maintain what I ate as gluten free food can be high in calories. So I went back to a plan that teaches you how to eat really easily. It is working cause in 4 weeks I have lost 10.2 pounds. Not to shabby if I say so.

I do have some pictures to post. I finish the birthday present for Mom. It was a pair of blue socks. I teased her by telling her it was something she asked for, which she did as a side comment in a conversation that we had before Christmas. She received my very first pair of socks that I ever knitted so they were okay but not as good as the latest ones. So I made her an updated pair.

Also Pookie delivered the scarf to his mom yesterday, but forgot to take the camera so there is no pictures of that at this time.

It was snowing big fluffy flakes on the way to work this morning. It was so beautiful I wish I could have stayed home and watched it. At least the air is fresh and the weather is not too cold.

lost in time

I really dread sometimes knitting for a deadline but I do it for myself. I am currently trying to finish a project before Saturday night so I can block it and give it to my mom for her birthday. Her birthday is Saturday, however, due to work schedule we aren't able to get together until Sunday.

We will be going to lunch at one of my favorite restaurants Biaggi's. They have one of the best gluten free pastas and tons of sauces that I have had since going gluten free. The staff has been excellent each time we have gone and several of them know us by name.

It seems like the year just started and here it is February. At least it started off right with snow, the light fluffy kind. I could go without the below freezing temperatures that we have had this year but today at least the gunk is out of the air. Yeah!!! I will post a picture of mom's birthday gift on Sunday after the party!!!
