What a Thoughtful Husband I Have

Today, while Scott was at the store he made his way back to the fabric department and found some lovely fabric for me. He brought it home and told me it would make a wonderful head cover to add to my stash.  This is really saying something since the fabric department of any store is probably his all time worst place to be, but that makes it all the more special.

Isn’t it beautiful. I should be able to get two covers from this piece. Wow what a special husband I have.

Birthday Surprises with a Washer and Dryer // 39 Years

What a wonderful birthday I had this year! Thirty nine is not so bad when you have people around you that love you and a Father in heaven who guides you.

Scott and I celebrated my birthday this year by installing a new washer and dryer in the bus. They work like a dream! No more laundr-o-mats for us! Yipee =0)

Here is a picture of Scott watching the washer spin:

Then we went to dinner at a little steak house here in town. They are small in size only. There are no menus and the chef/cook comes out from the back (if it is your first time dining there) with a huge slab of meat on a very large cutting board. He explains their dining selections (steak or chicken) and then retreats to the back to prepare what you ask for. The sides were baked potato or sweet potato and salad bar. The dinner was wonderful, but $50 for the two of us was quite steep. Oh well, it was our first (and probably last) time dining there.

At dinner Scott surprised me with a new camera. I have been wanting one for some time now so that I can take pictures for this blog and other group stuff.

So since I have the camera now I can take a picture of the gift my wonderful friend Cathy sent me. She is such a wonderful blessing and truly a gift from God. Here is what she sent.

She sent me a wonderful book and a really neat scarf that she knitted for me.

Prayer Cloth Completed and on Being a New Grandmother at 38

Today I mailed off another prayer cloth. I knitted this one in the bee stitch which is not a very common stitch used today.

The pattern is:
Row 1 – K
Row 2 – K1, K1 below
Row 3 – P1, K to last stitch, P1
Row 4 – K1, {K1, K1 below}, repeat {} to last stitch, K1

Here is the result:

Today I started knitting another pair of socks. I dislike starting socks. Needless to say, i went two rounds in one direction and then reversed course and went the other direction. Time to frog a bit.

On a brighter note, I am going to be a grandmother. My birthday is this weekend and I am going to be 39. My son informed me a while back that I am going to be a grandmother. This is the first time I can put it in public though because not everyone knew. Today we found out that it is going to be a boy. Everyone knows now so it is time to start thinking about how to spoil him.

Weather Blues Promotes Cabin Feaver, Even in a Bus

This is the 5th of May and it is supposed to be 58 degrees tomorrow for a high with 30 mph winds. Right now it is raining, cold and windy outside. ARRRRGGGGHHHH. I am not sure spring/summer is ever going to get here. Well, maybe I can get some knitting done anyway. You would think we wouldn’t get cabin fever in a bus, but perhaps being cramped into a 40 foot by 8 foot space makes 58* feel like -30* sometimes. I still love it, but can’t wait for some warmer weather so show up out here.
