Saturday Cleaning... brings me back to my childhood. My mom would have my sister and I working all day on Saturday cleaning the house. This meant dusting, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, changing beds etc. To this day if I am planning on cleaning like that, regardless of the day, I call it Saturday cleaning. Oh I remember the little nick knacks my mom had, hundreds of them, we had to dust everyone. But it was fun re-arranging them again afterwards. I have some Saturday cleaning that needs to be done around here, don't want to though. I'd rather knit.
Speaking of knitting I learned how to use the long tail cast on method yesterday. I've been steering clear away from it, thought why did casting on need to be complicated? OK I have changed my mind. I LOVE it. Once I watched the tutorial video online (3 times) I had it down perfect.
Still working on the smileys (they are crocheted though)Adam thinks they are balls so after he goes home I need to find all the ones he took and threw around, LOL. I also made a couple small squares with a heart on them for a woman in one of the yahoo groups I am a member of, we are gathering the squares and making her a blanket, her husband of 44 years passed away October 31st.
Tried to get Adam to go to sleep last night, he sleeps on the couch, he was in the chair and kept saying "No, I'm not sleepy yet" Well I was sleepy, LOL. I finally got him to lay down just before 10pm. Hannah had him all pumped up playing with him earlier.
I made a beef stew in the crock pot yesterday and it was delicious. I love crock pot meals. That however is part of the reason I need to clean today... I can't wash the crock pot out until the clean dishes are put away and the new set of dirty ones are washed. The dishes just build up. I have no problem washing them all, I just want someone to put away the clean stuff. Looks like that someone is going to be ME.
Oh before I forget, I got some weird emails that I think were spam, but they looked like they were notices of someone commenting on my blog. So for awhile I am making all comments moderator approved and word verification. I am so sorry for the inconvenience, but it was spooky. I got 5 or 6 of these emails and there was nothing in the comments of my blog anywhere. Hope you will all still comment so I know you're out there.
Sounds like Adam is about to wake up. So I am going to sign off for now.
By the way my avatar is finally knitting for me. I wonder if my security was blocking her for some reason??
Have a great day.
