Thurs morning knitting

Today I joined a group of Oakleafers to try to learn how to knit. The highlight of the day was spending a bit of time with Tara's little munchkin, about 7 months old and big brown eyes! I have fantasies of one day in the future, making a small square dishcloth or scrubbie. I don't know if that is going to happen, though. I need constant assist at this point.

Kim whose husband is off in the hot sandy place was there, and it was good to meet up with Diane and Kathleen too. I have not seen them in a while and they all looked wonderful! I have been a bit of a hermit since Jose left and we moved to Ikego. Then again, since he came back I am still in my hermit ways, and having a bunch of cold bugs in a row doesn't help. So it was very nice to get out and socialize with other humans besides the short ones.

I have read "The Friday Night Knitting Club", so I figure I know enough to join a club. Ha! Somebody bring the wine, I'll bring the trash talk!

Speaking of trash talk, has anyone out there seen the show "Army Wives"?? I got a few discs from Netflix and found it kind of amusing. Like a Desperate Housewives for wives living on a base.

I got glued to it, waiting to see who was going to cheat on their spouse, when were the guys getting deployed, what crazy outfit would that little cutie Roxy show up in next, etc. It was like eating chocolates that you know are not good for you in mass quantities but just can't help yourself. A few times I also teared up and was forced out of my seat to find some kleenex.

That is when I knew I had to get out of the house and get another hobby!

Glad to see you again at our knitting group! I'll make you look good. I had to unravel my new scarf last night since I totally messed it up in only about 5 "moves." I may get back to where I was (not very far) by the next time we meet. ha ha
