"Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple."

Thursday night we went to the SnB and Toni brought a cake for me from her, Tevana and Claire. It was totally fabulous (I'm betting it was better than the yarn Dixie ate at her "yarn tasting!") I have to share a picture...

Thank you for doing that for me gals. It really meant alot and I was truly touched.

Claire brought me this...
I have been walking around with it shoved up my nose ever since. What does that tell you.
I actually LOVE the scent of Lavender of which there is a lot of it in it. Reminds me of the relaxing cool down part of Yoga class which is very calming.

Aversion Therapy

It does work. Just try crocheting or knitting a blanket throughout the summer months. I can practically guarantee that doing that will make you NEVER want to do it again. I decided to take a little respite from the "Damn Blanket" project and make a couple of things on a much smaller scale and that do not have to rest in your lap as you progress(Smells like birthday and holiday presents.)


Hat made from some type of
"Moda Dea" can't for the life
of me remember what it's called...

Scarf made from
Crystal Palace "Glam"

I'd also like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to my mom. 36 years ago today she was finishing up 24 hours of hard labor just to be able to bring me into this world. (Talk about aversion therapy!!!) Ummm, thanks!

This Blog entry brought to you by the letter "K"

Yesiree, it has been a 'few minutes' since my last blog entry. Carlin is back from Camp and she had a fabulous time. Though, I think she is happy to be home. Last I heard she does want to go back next summer. So, all in all...a success!

While she was at camp she rekindled interest in a craft she learned long ago. We have already had to go to 'Michael's' for supplies...I am taking the liberty of photographing her projects for her since she has been a slacker with her own blog.

Thomas and I went to the Dodger game a week or so ago and we both noticed something somewhat interesting. Usually, on the scoreboard they will record the pitchers strikeouts with the letter "K." That was not changed. However, they won't usually put them right up next to each other (for the first three) when the batters have struck out for fear of being 'socially incorrect.' Apparently, Dodger Stadium has changed it's policies. Either that, or not only are their sponsors "Budweiser", "US Bank", "Toyota" et al....but it now appears the "KKK" wants in on the action, too.

Last Thursday's SnB had a birthday theme. It was Tevana's Birthday. I didn't get a picture of Tevana (for some strange reason) but I have one of her i'd like to post. I think it was a self portrait.

I did however manage to take one of Claire eating her fabulous piece of Tiramisu(that Toni brought)...Um, hello....Miss Manners, I have a candidate for you :-)

Nothing much to report along the lines of crochet projects. I'm still working on the "Damn Blanket." I have made some progress, though. I'll post photos when i'm done.
