This too shall pass...whoever said that?? I need to find out. I am generally a very upbeat person but this March weather just aches my bones so.. That is depressing in itself but add that with no Internet service for days at a time..no blog land to cheer me up..anyways..boohoos are over..promise. I detest depressing blogs....
I've been working more on my American Flag blanket for Aunt Penny, which is so slow coming..but it's getting there. Didn't help that I went weeks..OK, months without touching it. It took her stopping by and ooohhhing and aaawwwing over it to get me to pick it up again.
I'd much rather be working on more squares..at this rate Ms.Sue will have enough of just my squares for a blanket..:)
I sometimes wonder about the peoples blogs I follow. Where does all the time come from. Maybe if I crocheted as much as I looked at everyone elses crochet projects I'd get more done...note to self...crochet more..look at blogs less..yes..I think I'll try that, see if it helps :)
I must apologize in advance, I usually try to put at least a few pictures per post but I can't get my camera to connect to my computer. I had to take it all apart when I was trying to get Internet service back. I'm sure it's not that hard to do, but beings that it's ....whatever time it is..past 3am I don't want to start banging, hitting, kicking, swearing at it and wake the entire house up :) I was going to wait to post till I did, but it's been so long I can't. Promise..pictures to come. I'm actually very proud of this one..sure did shock myself with this one..wait till you see!
On a much more serious note. I wanted to encourage everyone to ask your employers about matching donations to help those in Japan. It never hurts to ask. My employer is matching up to $100,000 per employee with no total limit!! I know not everyone works for a big company but even $10 matched is $20..imagine if a million people did that...every little bit helps. Trust me, I am not one of those proud employees that loves her job. We give millions..prolly billions every year to things I don't agree with, so you prolly won't ever hear this from me again. I know it's a tax write off for them, but I'm proud of them just the same. My employer has an "intranet site" (internal only) set up for us to make is easy for everyone. I'm not sure how to do this but I'm sure I can direct you to someone who can if you need to know. We had two options, the Red Cross (which is what I did) and the other one..goodness..I forget the name and I'm not logged into work computer to see..It's a global one that Dr's Without Borders is part of. Sorry, I can tell you Monday morning if you want to know the other name. Not trying to be pushy...their suffering just breaks my heart to say the least..sorry to go on for so long.
Take care..talk to you soon xoxoxoxo
