This day started out good but has gone downhill since then. Last night I messed up my sock so I went on to another project and messed that up then today I went and got ingredients for making crock pot corn chowder and 2 people in the store did not "hear" me when I said no! The chowder took all afternoon and it was supposed to be "easy" but then I only have one burner and I should have known since it required cooking an entire pound of bacon. I wanted a quick crock pot dinner so I could paint today and work outside. I just finished making it and cleaning up the mess and it's 5:15 p.m. Sorry, I am definitely crabby today and I never get that way usually but I did go mingle with inconsiderate humans today so that is part of it, I'm sure. Several people at the store uptown are very patronizing to older people and since I'm only 65 and not limping or using a walker I really do not appreciate it. I know they think they are being helpful but it's insulting! If I told the guy 3 times, I told him 4, that I did NOT want any help carrying my groceries out. I tried to grab my 4 little bags and he refused and was out the door with a cart! And a customer behind me started unloading my groceries and going through them which again I said no but she "insisted". I do not want strange people handling my food when they're not "food handlers". What is it about the word NO that some people don't seem to understand? And why is it that once you get a certain age people ignore you and you seem to lose all human rights? I'm not stupid either. I've programmed computer systems using machine code so I'm nobody's dummy but now I get treated like one. Although, messing up 3 needle projects doesn't exactly make me look like Einstein. I think I will blog what I had planned to blog tomorrow when I'm in a better mood. OMG! Am I turning into one of those cranky old people? Heaven help me!
Happy Trails to you......

I've finished the cuff on the sock..now on to the heel flap!
I spent the entire afternoon there chatting with a KAL group and joining in the fun with the project below. I looked at yarns of all kinds and bought some wooden dpn's to replace the treacherous aluminum ones I had gotten at Walmart.....ahhhh.....love my wooden needles.
Now, I 'm off to get my jammies on and watch DWTS's (Dancing With The Stars) and catch up on some much needed sleep....nice sound sleep! Gosh, I hope I don't have nightmares about my weather radio going off! Thank you for all your thoughts and wishes...it must have helped as I'm still here!
