Tammy! She won the 100th blog post contest. Yup! It’s my 100th post. I feel like I should have balloons and streamers or something.
I “met” Tammy a few months ago through blogging. Somehow, I think we must be related. We both have 5 kids. We’re both knitting addicts. So many times she’ll relate something about her kids or husband, and I just nod and think, “yes, that’s my life”. Anyway, Tammy chose the sock yarn, and as fast as she knits, she’ll have the socks done by the time I mail the yarn to her. (Sorry! We’ve been telling blonde jokes at our house. It’s our resident blonde daughter telling the jokes!)
What have I been up to? One kid had to do a family tree.
It was actually really fun. Honey found the manifest document of one of his great grandparents. He emigrated from Norway. I feel really blessed when I think back to the awesome grandparents and great grandparents I had. My son has one great grandma around yet. She’s 95 years young and she’s an amazing lady!
Let’s see. What other exciting things have I been up to? Oh, I know. I made swamp scum.
This is the chicken curry we had for dinner the other night. Fortunately, it tasted better than it looked!
My sewing room is coming together. I put a quilt on the quilt rack today.
It’s not the perfect quilt for that spot, but it will do until I get the perfect one finished. The wood floor goes in on April 14.
On the knitting front, I’m still plugging along on my Waves in the Square Shawl. The rows are taking me about 25 minutes each now. I want it done, because there’s some Handmaiden Sea Silk waiting for me.
I just want to say a big thank you to everyone that commented on my 100th post. You’re all so nice! If I can make people smile and feel better after reading my blog, then I’m happy. Life can be tough sometimes, and if I can make someone’s day better, then passingdowncrazy is a success.
Several of you have mentioned Lexi. She just finished a project for a young friend and she’s promised to guest blog. You can keep Lexi in your prayers. She’s been battling some nasty migraines for the last few months. She’s started a process with a headache clinic, so we’re hoping to find some answers.
Well, I’m off to tackle my kitchen. The floor looks great, because the puppy takes her job much more seriously than I do. I just don’t get a kick out of licking every inch of the counters, like she does the floor. I’m going to give that kitchen a lick and a promise. Haaaaaa! Ha! Ha! I’m so funny. Get it? A lick????? And I’m not even a blonde! I’m hand painted. Brown over gray.
Ok, I’ll quit. G’night!
