June 2010

Hello friends,

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer, we have finally warmed up here although the beaches are overcast and cloudy each morning and afternoon.

I have been knitting very little since my promotion at work. I am working on a teal scarf in the Loose Lattice Lace pattern for a friend who just moved to Chicago. I figure I will get it finished in time for her to wear it this winter. It is really turning out pretty. I wish I had a picture to post for you, maybe next time.

Oh, I just finished baking a Peach Blueberry Pie double crusted pie, it looks great! The peaches are off of my Dad's tree here in the yard and they are really good.

I wish you all a "Safe and Sane" 4th of July!

June 2010

Hi my Faithful Followers!

S0 many things have happened since the last post, the sun is now out here in Riverside County California!

Okay, grab your cup of coffee, or tea, and let's catch up.

I have finally come into this Century, well as far as the year of my car that is. I bought a 2008 PT Cruiser...I love it! I certainly do enjoy my drive to work so much more, no more squeaks, no more adding oil to the engine every week, no more rolling down the window to be able to open the door...YEAH!

I also received a promotion at work, Jitterbug, I am now at the bottom of the ladder in Management, a Lead. It will get me off of the phone for 2 hours a day, and that is wonderful!

My youngest daughter, Nina, and her boyfriend Jonathon went to his Senior Prom, she looked so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes!

My older daughter, Alisha, just finished her second State Competition for Bikini modeling and won second place. She will now go to the National Competition the end of July in Las Vegas, NV.

I have not been able to get much knitting in lately, but I did finish my Moving Shawl (see the picture?) and Citron (sorry no picture yet). I am not sure who I will give it to yet, but it will make a great Christmas gift for someone.

What has been going on in your lives?

Have a wonderful June!
