Alone, all alone

Although today was VERY lively with 11 of the grandkids here, tonight they have all gone home. Beloved husband is at work, and son is at a pool party. So, it's just ME. I carefully (and selfishly) saved bits of cooked fresh veggies this week and indulged myself in an enormous fritta for my solo supper. Green beans, yellow squash,zucchini,onion, reheated, cooked with THREE eggs (the DECADENCE!), baked it and then topped with fresh sliced heirloom tomatoes a sprinkling of sea salt! Bliss! I feel positively rich!

I continue to be on a hat kick, knitting wise. Just sent off 3 as a donation to a hospital in New Guinea, have three done so far for Soldiers Angels and another week till I need to send them. What else can I get done for them? Maybe some gaiters?

Also still at work on the Biblical Bits for Knit Wits afghan. We start teaching the class in September and need to have a couple done to show the class.
Also swatching for the Classic Oak Cardigan for DH. And secretly working on the Kiki rug for him for Christmas.

Never not knitting!

The Dizziness

Apparently the enduring dizziness is a secondary infection after a first one. It's called toxic labrythinitis. The room keeps spinning, as if my gyroscope in my head spins to right itself when I move my head. Bending over is a definite no-go. Carefully semi squatting with my head held exactly level is the way I am coping. I got some meds from the doc to help and it DOES help, as long as I very carefully manage when to take it. I just want it to go away!


Again. Every day, every week, every month, every year. Families just expect to be fed. Tonight, I think that I will sooth their hunger with pasta shells mixed with steamed, chopped fresh broccoli, diced chicken, and my famous white sauce, with some extra garlic added. I think for variety I will top it with buttered cracker crumbs and throw it into the oven.

Phew! 4H camp!

We had to be up and at'em today in order for kids to get slots for 4H camp! We got the last 3 positions and were there 40 min after they opened! Wow! It's such a great deal, $47 for a three day camp. And the camp is beautiful. I'm so thankful that we got 3 of them in, now to hope for that one kid to not go so the other one can slide in as the alternate. I love 4H!

And now that the 2010 camping season is upon us, I think I should plan trips to fill in some more states!
