 Good Monday Morning.

When's the LastTime:

1- You saw someone wearing something you knit for them. 
(yesterday!  Fireman wore the snow falling hat while he shoveled)

(it's been years. Having had to work the overnight shift for years and drag myself from sleep, I dont' stay up for anything anymore) 

3- You had cake. 
(I had cake in December at a relative's party. Darn that Mariano's bakery. I preferred the frosting to the cake)

(I'm working on the one in the photo now. Details tomorrow. Can you believe it?) 

6-You sat on a hot radiator to warm up
(this morning.  When it is January I have my cuppa while I sit on the kitchen radiator in my pj's.  It is so hot I have to sit on a towel but its worth it.  How will I ever live without my beloved radiators?)

1. Last weekend. Son-in-law's mom was wearing her Christmas mitts.
2. Never. I go to bed an hour early and read until I'm sleepy while Bill sleeps soundly beside me with the lights on.
3. I had cake on Dec. 15th when we celebrated birthdays of our three boys born in the same month--SIL and 3rd and 4th son.
4. I want to knit sweaters everyday! I have to force myself to put my latest sweater aside and knit something else for a while.
6. Never but I am in love with the heated seats in the car so I can imagine how the radiator feels.
7. Last month when a family member passed away. One of my New Year's commitments is to write more letters this year.
8. I haven't stubbed my toe since we got our new bed. The legs just don't reach out and grab me like the old one.
9. I stood on the scales this morning and I had lost a pound. Woohoo!!!
10. I talk to myself and to the dogs all the time. I don't want to ignore Max when he talks to me!

Hmmmm.....this is a hard one!
1. I can't remember. All my knitted gifts seem to disappear. Does the dog count?
2. The night I tried to make headway on son's cardi so I would have it at Christmas but I soon realized it was futile. It is slow going.
3. I had fruitcake yesterday. I feed it some brandy and had a chunk. It was good.
4. I always want to knit a sweater but I am terrible at it. I have yet made one that really fit.
5? 6. Not since I retired. I sat on the ones in my class all the time. I loved having a hot tushy in that cold room.
7. I wrote a New Year's letter to a penpal in Latvia. We have been writing back and forth for over 20 years.
8. No toe but I jammed my thumb today turning the knob on the car radio.
9.I never weigh myself. I don't want to know. If my clothes fit, I'm okay.
10. I talk to myself all the time. It's the only way I remember anything.

1- You saw someone wearing something you knit for them.
Saw me today wearing my red shawl and hat.. but they were crocheted. :-)

2- You stayed up late just to knit
I don't crochet or knit late.. I do it when there is good light and I'm not tired out.

3- You had cake.
Fruitcake for the holidays.

4-You wanted to knit a sweater
I don't think I've ever thought of doing such a complex knit project. But I did knit a fair isle poncho out of alpaca in creams, browns and blacks that I spun myself.

6-You sat on a hot radiator to warm up
I've never hung out where radiators were used.

7-You wrote a letter?
I hand wrote my xmas cards and thank you notes using a fountain pen and pretty ink.

8-You stubbed your toe
2 months ago on my spinning wheel leg.

9- You got on the scale
A few weeks ago. Ouch.

10- You got caught talking to yourself
I don't do that much as there is always someone here to talk to.

Since it is Tuesday I am way behind, I talk to myself all the time, I can't recall anyone wearing something I have made, maybe my gifts aren't so hot! I haven't stubbed my toe in a while, I hope I did not jinx myself.
