Busy Busy Busy

Boy has life been busy! Dr appts almost every day since I returned from Canada. All is well, just dealing with somethings. new meds and new treatments. Will see how they go. Am trying to hold off on hip replacement. I go to pain management clinic next week and hopefully we can do a few things.
Billy had a car accident in brothers car. Brakes failed and not at a good time. At least he hit no one else and he was fine. Put a hole in gas tank though and not sure the vehicle is really worth fixing. Mess with insurance company but like I said no one was hurt so will work out ok.
Everyone I know seems to be busting out with babies. I have been making baby hats and delivering them like going out of style. 5 babies born this week and another today. She went in last night but baby hasn't arrived yet. I have been making my little angel baby hat. I love that pattern and think I will keep making them. They are fun for me and a bit different from what others would make.
Beaded stitch markers have been doing me well. I have ordered more red hat charms. Those went over real well with my trip to Canada and I liked that. Also ordered some flip flop charms and going to lok at some more later.
Will take pic of baby hat and post today. Also of garden. Tulips have bloomed and gone. I planted lavender out back and some sunflowers and catnip. Also a couple pumpkin seeds so will see how that goes. Just had to plant one for fun.
I have spun enough yarn for a pair of socks with my drop spindle so am going to play with that. I plan on casting on that today and see where it gets me. I also NEED to work on my cottage socks. I really want to get those done. Well, off to do a bit of finishing and mending before the day is mine. Then I can knit and relax, maybe at my favorite place at the park.

Calgary GTG

What a wonderful time. I sure did have a great time on my trip to Calgary, BC, Canada. Met up with some great friends and enjoyed their 'fiber antics'. We met on 31st and left for home on 3rd. Don't know where to start. Met a great group of friends, --- Lynne, Loralee, Susanne, Sharon, Sandra, Pat, Di, Nancie, Barb, and my Aunt Nancy was also there. I accidently left Geri's phone # at home so never did get to meet up with her. Hope I haven't made her mad.
Day 1 -- time to go and guess who is still abed, DH and his snores. For some reason he didn't want to get up and so I missed my plane in Atlanta. Finally got to Calgary though although about 3 hours late. Off for a quick yarn store fix and dinner. I don't think any of us stayed up late we were all tired from travel so off to bed.
Day 2 - Up and off for breakfast. Next a few yarn stores and back to hotel. Our group stopped at Safeway and got a few things and ate lunch in our room. Then down to sitting area where we knit and spun and visited. In the evening we had gtg at Di's where we knit, ate, and did our little gift exchange.
Day 3 - Breakfast in hotel and then us 'Americans' went to pick up a few little souvenier's for the home folks. Then back to hotel for some nibbles and knitting. I went and took a nap in afternoon and boy did I snooze afternoon away. Later we went out to dinner at the keg. Wonderful place. Really great food and boy did I have an appetite. After we went back to hotel and tucked everyone in (see Auntie -- I don't tell everything) I headed up for some sleep also.
Day 4 - Time to go home. No fun. Had a wonderful visit with Sandra and we left together for airport. I really enjoyed some time visiting with her.
