It's art.

I cant knit, so I am trying to weave a baby blanket.
Rofl2

knitting... so I couldn't knit either. mum tried teaching me when I was in elementary school, middle school and as a teenager.
i couldn't even get the basic knit and purl right without dropping stitches and messing up counts. Embarrassment

fast forward, post grad school. me, madly in love with dashing boy.
so I decided I would knit him a cashmere scarf for christmas.
only problem: i didn't know how to knit. laugh out loud or read a pattern. Facepalm or follow knitting instructions. EEK!
and mum was halfway across the world, thousands of miles away, not coming over until Christmas. look around

So I got a how to knit book, and did lots of google searching looking up sites with pictures, and got some practice yarn, and practiced a square of exactly what i imagined I wanted to make him. first few squares were MESSY. but then I got it. 1.5 weeks later I was knitting. Big Grin

When mum arrived, we picked out good knitting needles and lovely cashmere yarn, and I created my own pattern EEK! and knit a long grey scarf, with tassles.

so phooey, girl. if you want to do it, go for it. you gave birth to 5 babies. and you're raising them. if you can do that, you can knit.

there ain't nothing a mama can't do when she puts her mind to it. Strong

p.s. the scarf went to the boy. and eventually the boy went to another girl. but I learned how to knit, and no one can take that away from me. Big Grin

I have arthritis in my wrists and fingers among other places but I fear it will hinder the knitting thing so I will skip it most likely.

what's that?

yep, I'm the same away.
when we were swtiching away from cheer, I read up on Method and got it free at CVS after ecbs and q. And we liked it, so that worked out nicely.

Now, I'm once again ready to find a new kind, fragrance free. Hoping to find a deal to test out 7th gen free and clear and Method free and clear. The Method one has better reviews in terms of cleaning power.
My sister *hates* any of the 7th Gen cleaning products. She has 2 little ones with skin issues (terrible eczema) and so she likes to use as natural as she can get, but she has found the 7th Gen just doesn't clean at all. Almost better to just use hot water.

This has been a very dead thread lately. Let's blame Bunnies.

I have pull apart yeast rolls rising. I don't get too much credit -- it's Rhodes frozen dough. Not like I had to knead it for an hour. Lasagna is made and ready to go in the oven (no, it's not boughten frozen, it's real). I have a small brownie mix (8 x 8 pan size) that I'm going to make and we are having brownie sundaes for dessert. Mostly because I have been craving New York Vanilla ice cream with hot fudge on it for several days. Yes, I'm fully aware that none of that is diet friendly. But it's very tasty!
cuz everybody is busy toy hunting. or packing. but we can blame bunnies anyways.

uh, gt... i don't see any veggies there...

tm4d, i walked past the Shake Shack near times sq today during lunchtime and there was a line outside of about 20 people. it's most famous for it's burgers.

i also walked past the Ed Sullivan theatre where they tape the Late Show W David Letterman. you can request tickets at http://www.lateshowaudience.com if you go, letterman keeps the theatre very chilly, so dress warm!

i know they also tape the Wendy Williams show in new york. i think near macys 34th st. you can also get tickets to The View but you have to be there very early. i'm sure there are other tv shows you can watch being taped. the food tv network has studios by chelsea market. there should be some game shows you can get tickets for also.

all tv show tapings are free.

Lasagna has spaghetti sauce in it. Spaghetti sauce has tomatoes, onions, and peppers in it. Yep. Veggies. Not one but three! laugh out loud And I'm pretty sure if I look closely at the hot fudge label it will say that it has corn syrup in it. Corn is a vegetable too. I'm up to four now!

Little town nearby is having it's little town festival -- Sweet Corn Days, I believe. We are going to the city wide yard sales then to another little town to an auction. Beats sittin' home, I guess.

morning! Wave

gt- i will give you one serving of fruits and veggies for the sauce since they count half a cup of tomato sauce as a serving. the onions and peppers that are part of that half cup are there for texture and flavoring, like the basil and oregano which don't count either. so unless you had a veggie lasagna and got more veggies than just the sauce, no credit for themshake head.

and...you get credit for a fruit, not a veggie. actually, the pepper is a fruit too. the onion is a veggie but unless you had a half to whole medium onion in your piece of lasagna,shake head.

so yesterday morning i got up early again and got to target a little after opening, b/c i was going to meet a friend for lunch. no activity whatsoever in the toy section. scanned a u build battleship and it came up 75% off so i knew markdowns were in effect. but it didn't look like anything had been moved in the clearance aisle since the day b4. the rest of the toy section looked like it had been reset. went to the lego aisle and the passenger plane was gone! 24 hrs b4 there were 3 of them Confused. i need to *compare* more items at target!

asked phil, very nice helpful employee who checked for the snowcone maker the other wk and who i learned works in books and dvds but helps out in toys, if he could check. supposedly still 2 in the store. go to the back, can't find them. had a little chat. they do take some things to the back to mark down, but there is no rhyme or reason as to what or why. may come back out after the team huddle at 10am if they are pushing stuff out, or may come back out a wk from now. he doesn't work on that team so he doesn't know why. he did say this markdown team is better than the one b4. hard to believe.

so while i waited till after the 10am huddle, i scanned the entire toy section for stuff mentioned in deals. i pretty much had it all to myself. after about an hr, there were some casual shoppers, but i don't think there was anybody specifically hunting clearance. ended up w/ a whole cartload. a lot of stuff that people got 75 off were full price, like the pharoah lego, harry potter legos, fp lp zoo. target being it's usual ymmv self. the bubble mower was only 30 off, etc, so definitely gotta go back next wk to check the 2nd round. there were 2 water tables totally unmarked. since i still have the one from last yr in my basement, i resisted, but i did tell this mom w/ 2 kids who had asked me where i found all the toys and esp legos. told her you have to check every aisle. thought about it, decided to be nice and chased her back down to ask her how old her son was (2.5) and told her he might be a little old for it but there were 2 water tables for 75 off. dunno if she was interested.

10am came and went, 10:30 i had to go check out. the 90 off thermos cube cooler which i found stuck in the gardening section on thurs (so INF now) was now by a scanner in the pantry section. thought about trying to get it since i had a whole cartload of toys and even trying to give phil's name but again decided against it (trying to fight the hoarding tendency) and didn't want to get a good source of info in trouble.

must have hit 75% of the red lights on the way to the bus stop and there was one yellow i should have gunned. not that familiar w/ the parking deck, so had a little trouble figuring out how to get to the other side to get a shady spot. heard the bus pull in 4 floors below. raced down. everybody had already boarded. stood there shoving 16 qtrs into the little tiny slot and bus pulled away. sigh!!! still had to buy a bus ticket.

so of course the next bus was over 5 minutes late and people still had to board and load luggage! i would have had plenty of time to make that one. so i was more than half hr late meeting my friend.

nice lunch, walked up 8th ave in Hell's Kitchen. many, many small inexpensive restaurants that my friend was interested in coming back to for lunch w/ her coworkers. tm4d- this a residential area north of times square known for it's restaurants. every year they have the ninth ave food festival. when i used to go in the 80's it used to be mostly about food from the local restaurants. it's now become just like every other street fair in ny. it is fun, very crowded but not so special anymore. they also have a flea market every weekend. i've been wanting to go. we always drive past on the way to somewhere else.
http://www.hellskitchenfleamarket...page_id=77

ended up at The Shops at Columbus Circle that i'd been meaning to check out for a long time. tm4d- it's a small upscale mall that overlooks the monument for christopher columbus and the southwest corner of central park. very pretty view and maybe very nice fall foliage when you are in town. i think the bennetton and sisley are going out of business. almost everything 70 off, suits 30 off and a whole empty fixture section in the back although they actually didn't put up signs saying that. had an enjoyable time shopping summer clearance in the mall but we both ended up empty handed.

hit a target greatland on the way home. most of the aisles were half empty. to practically barren. the funny thing was the half aisle devoted to clearance still had the 30 off signs laugh out loud. still managed to find a few things. found a color explosion glow board mixed in w/ other crayola boards in the toy section, scanned 5.02. later ended up in the crayola aisle, they had about 10, only one was marked down like 30 off. mightily resisted taking all of them since i got everyone the glowboard on the go earlier this yr. still bought 4 to see if bff wants any and stick one or 2 in the gift closet.

i'm rambling b/c i can't decide if i should go back to target and hunt for more toys and see if people ever figured out the toys went 75 off and if i should hit different store to hunt for treasure. i got home late so i have a trunkload still in the car that i have to unload b4 i go b/c i don't want them to bake in the sun. hence my trying to find a shady spot earlier and missing the bus.

what to do...Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

and then i have to check the ratings on everything i bought and return anything that got panned. and figure out where to put everything until bdays and xmas!

let us know how it goes. I definitely need a new microwave, even if it will sit in storage for a month or so.

l2b- i wish either you lived w/in driving distance or it was reasonable to ship. i totally would have gotten one for you. as it is, dunno what's going to happen to the one sitting in my basement from last yr.

hah! maybe i should ask my friend if he is planning to drive to georgia any time soon! he has relatives near savannah and drives down occasionally. one day i will hitch a ride w/ them to visit my bro in atlanta. i usually see him and family when he comes here for business and to see his in-laws. i want to go to atlanta again but my family doesn't seem interested and every time we visit my bro they always end up away for business so we get free run of his apt and car Teehee last time was just about 2 yrs ago.

guess i will go to target to check out the devastation. i would like a new microwave too. mine is 16 yrs old and rusting inside from all the condensation over time. anybody got a dpci?
