The big boss made a surprise visit here from the corporate office this morning. No one knows why he came all this way, but I guess we'll find out soon.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Ouch! Hope your hand is ok, and that it heals quickly.

Good luck w/ the surprise visit..

Have a great day!!

Bummer sorry, girl.

Just out of curiosity, what is the postage?

I bet someone will buy them at JoAnn's & sell them on eBay soon.

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be the hottest day of the week here with a high of 98 degree's. Another boring day here. I don't really have anything to do. So I'll probably head to the pines early and see if Carl needs some with this transformation theme. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning,

Just sitting and relaxing before work, LC is with me until I drop him off with the person who will be watching him. He really wanted to go to school with JP today, but kindergarten starts a week later than the rest of the grades. I am sure next week when it is his turn, he won't want to go. He is just like me with being shy at new things, I guess that is one reason everyone calls him my clone.

I am, of course, getting excited about all things Christmas being everywhere. But reading the article about the Christmas music mistake really makes me think how much I dislike how people complain and almost villainize Christmas. I know not everyone is like us with the love of Christmas, but to always complain at the first sight of something green & red as some people do just....AAARRRRRRRGGGGHHHH!

Sorry, I'm done

I hope to have an easy night, I have some projects lined up, but my usual Wednesday nights never allow me to get everything done. With school back in session I am hoping it is slower to get them done.

I hope you all have a great Pines Day!!!

I agree you might want to try a 5.0mm (H) hook to start. I like crocheting with a G - 4.0mm but when I 1st started, I was using a bigger hook - possibly an I or a J. But give it a try & you will figure out which one you like! Good Luck! FUN!!
