was told by a passenger,
that i should drink 1 oz of water for every pound i weigh
that would be about 1 1/2 GALLONS ( 180 oz) - when i am on the ground
when i am in the air, i am supposed to drink 8 oz / hour i fly
that would have been an additional 7 - 8 glasses of water today
i would be spending MOST of my time in the lav ..
get to go BACK to Herndon with the same Cpt on Sun
then, near the end of the month,
i do the same trip with 2 pilots who are LOADS fun
HOPIN' that in July,

Monday, June 12
JUST finished tier 11 ..
BTW, using Ananas - color 109
for the stitching ..
SHOULD have taken the shawl i knit a while back
it was cool for June
took the bag i am knitting .. would have finished it if i hadn't made a minor mistake ..
th lighting in the church made reading difficult ...
guess maybe, i was a bit tired as well ..
but JUST in case, i brought a baby afghan to work on ..
Lorna's Laces Happy Valley( i think)
could NOT figure out what i had done and so .. due to the low lighting
instead of ripping what i had done, i started a diagonal dishcloth ..
i am on the 3rd skein of the afghan now
( well minus what i used on the FIRST afghan)
my neice ( the groom's sister) pointed out i owe
her TWO blankets for her kids ..
yup, i KNOW
the groom's cousin is ALSO pregnant, she is expecting a girl
so, i ended up staying till this morning instead of the planned
return home yesterday afternoon
it was GREAT to see my brother & his kids & GrandKids
so, i go to the post office today and i have a package to pick up
while i am waiting in line, i filled out the notice for Jury Duty in Fort Wayne ..
should NOT have to go since i live in Indy .. but you NEVER know ..
got home, put laundry in ..
gotta get the bag packed to go again on Thur ..
know who i will be working with .. she is FUN!!
hopin' we can figure something to do in Herndon .. i COULD knit ..
so, now i open the box from chappy which contain
the sock blockers i ordered AND some more stitch markers ...
washer stopped ..
time for softener ..
getting off to work on the bag ...
bought the yarn for the top stitching today ..
it's kinda textured & it's varigated ..
NOT what i went in the LYS for
but WILL look fabulous none the less ...
THREE more loads of laundry and i can PLAY
or nap ..
my brother has the CUTEST puppy
she is a Chesapeake Retreiver
but she whines @ nite ..
didn't sleep as good as i would have liked last nite ..
KEWL!! washer is done ..

Friday, June 9
So, I found the baby afghan
i'm NOT sure when i started this ...
thinkin' it was to be for my Great Nephew who will turn 4 in a month ..
it's mitered squares ...
guess i have wanted to do mitered squares for a while
i THOUGHT it was gonna be a diagonal dishcloth ..
i DO know the yarn ..
it's Lorna's Lace Superwash Worsted
BUMMER, didn't see the color on the website
HOPIN' i can figure out WHAT i was doin'
doubt i wrote it down
wouldn't know where it was IF i wrote it down
gonna start writing things down ..
may have to write it HERE!!!!
BASICALLY, i have been working on this since about Thur May 25
so about 2 WEEKS of knitting in ..
it's taking awhile ..
don't knit much when i am home ..
i am 1/3 of the way around the bag
on tier 10
there are 4 more tiers to go
tier 11 is a tier that i start binding off ..
goin' to my brother's house, so i will HOPEFULLY
get to knit alot
which mean ....
i SHOULD finish the bag part ..
maybe even the straps
takin' a baby blanket to work on
i NEED to polish my toenails ..
Thursday, June 8
