God is Good, All the Time

I had minor surgery yesterday afternoon and all went well.  I am doing great today too.  Now we wait for the lab results.

I am staying at mom's for couple days until I can drive again.  Chloe is at the kennel and doggy daycare.  I called yesterday to check up on her and she is doing well.

I miss my cats.  especially Sophie is who always laying on top of me.  She is a sweetheart.  I miss Angel meowing loudly let me know she wants more food.

Shirley, a woman from church, asked me to help her with the puppet ministry.  I have been busy looking for puppet scripts online and then tweaking one that we both agreed upon.  I have also been looking for songs to go with the puppet script.  I've enjoyed this process.

Mom bought me a Kindle for my surgery.  I absolutely love it.  I was so surprise when she gave it to me.  I could not believe it.  I've wanted one for a long time and kept watching as the price dropped on amazon.  Thank you mom for giving me this great gift.  I love you.

Silent but not idle

This blog has been silent for way too long. Please note that does not mean that I have been idle. Let me see, I have been reading tons of Beverly Lewis books about the Amish community, which I have come to love and respect. I took up spinning. Nora sold me her Mother Marion's Kick Spindle. and I started a Christmas present. Below is an afghan square I crocheted. 34 more to go. They are fun and easy!

I've been attending Maple Grove Mennonite church in New Castle. Cheryl Vanatsky is the pastor. She is a very passionate and compassionate speaker. I am making some good friends and am enjoying myself with this fellowship of people.

The Mining Disaster is absolutely horrible. The owners of Massey Energy Co. should be given life sentences for the death of the 29 miners. Just had to speak out on that.

Afghan is Finished

Here is my completed afghan crocheted in Marble Chunky Arcylic yarn that I got at Knit One in Squirrel Hill. I am very pleased with it. It is the perfect size. Stacey, the owner of Knit One, looked up in a handy dandy chart to see how many skeins of yarn I would need for an afghan. It stated 7 skeins. She had exactly 7 skeins of the Marble yarn in the color I wanted: Blue. What other colors are there? Yellow, green, purple, tan, ... all colors I find in nature when I go hiking.

Happy Saturday!

Yesterday was Happy Friday. I did not blog about it, but it was a happy Friday. Because of President's Day on Monday I am off work until Wednesday. Almost a full week. Yea!!!

I started a new sock yesterday using Autumn House Farm Merino Wool sock yarn. I'm knitting the "twin rib" six stitch pattern from the Sensational Sock book.

I made brownies yesterday. An influence from mom. They are delicious.
