KNITTING GAL

September 09, 2007

.....And now for something completly different!


I want to thank everyone for their kind comments about my little pup Chelsea. I hesitated to tell her story but she was so special to us, that I felt she deserved it. What a brave girl she was! I will post more funny stories about my other special girl, Holly too. She was a gentle creature. And what can I say about Oliver......well you'll have to check in on dogsonthursday.

I had a great Sunday with my lovely daughter in Manhattan. My husband and I drove in and picked her and her roommate up at their apartment and we had a wonderful bunch at a restaurant called Good. So what else could it be but good. The omelet was to die for, with basil, roasted tomatoes and goat cheese. Served on toasted sour dough bread. Yum! And of course a drink was in order. A most delicious Bloody Mary made with roasted chipolte peppers. Excellent. We had a marvelous time and talked and ate and had passion fruit mimosas too! What fun. Afterwards we took the girls home and dad got to do a few chores for her, hanging pictures, and moving furniture. We headed home happy and looking forward to another visit. Of course I worked on my Fall into Autumn dishcloths in the car and I am endeavoring to finish this sweet little dress I started for my niece months ago. I have made some headway on it and have reached the bodice at last. Now I get to do some plain stocking stitch which will be relaxing after the rows of lace I just screwed, um mm...I mean knitted up! So all in all Had a good weekend and am not missing my two others away at college too much.....(insert tears here). Hope everyone has a great new week and I will get some pictures of knitting as soon as I have something respectable to post.

It's hard to let the kids go off on their own but it's harder when they come back home to stay. I am packing the same daughter off for a second time in Dec. But it's easier this time, most of her stuff is still in boxes.

Nice post - I am glad you talked about Chelsea and Holly, not to mention the wonderful city meal! I have not been up to Manhattan in 2 years now (lived there in the mid-'80s). Our doggie babies are truly part of us, aren't they?
