another gorgeous right after the other!

I'm getting lots done FINALLY!  But yet the days just fly by....what's up with that?  It seems I get up, have breakfast, get the mail and before I know it the 5 o'clock news is on and then it's time for bed! LOL!
 Did I tell you I made a big pot of split pea and ham soup?  The ham bone was so big though and you had to cover with water well, then it ended up I had to go buy more peas!  It's really good though and very economical.  I'm thinking some of this will get frozen!  There's a lot of soup there for 1 person!
I'm just about to the point on my sock(s) where I was when I messed up last time so say a little prayer that I get farther along this time! LOL!  I am determined to knit socks and lots of them! 
I did make a coaster after I finished the potholder....I just put the potholder in so you could see the size difference....still loving that pattern and I pretty much have it memorized now.
 I started another of a set of 2 that will go to my "cooking" son for Christmas.  I think he will like this colorway.
The African Violet is still unfurling!  It has more ruffles than a petticoat!
I finally got the lawn mowed today too and I came in and took a bath and had my "jammies" on by 5:00 p.m.!  I'm bushed.....nighty night!  I hope you all had a wonderful day where you are!


  1. Your lawn looks! You have been busy doing lots of projects! :)

  2. EARLY TO BED, EARLY TO RISE ... you know the rest *grin.
    Sounds like you are getting a ton of projects done!

    I love that it's cooling down enough now, that we can get some work done too!!

    Love that soup.. looks so delish.

    Keep up the good work, and enjoy this day.


  3. That grass looks good. So hot here! I've been tired all week and haven't done much of anything except what needs to be done. Hope your day is a good one. Tammy

  4. You had a great day. I had a busy day yesterday as well.

  5. Hi Sam,
    Yes I would saying freezing a bit of that soup is a good idea. Taste really good on a cold winter day.
    Fall here too, in the 60's and sunny, really nice.
    I have been sorting and cleaning out like I never have before. Maybe its that seven year thing you hear about, you know where every seven years things change. Maybe thats it.
    Been reading a lot, I really should pick of some kind of needle work like you, unless I gave away all my supplies.
    Well Sam keep up the pace, like I said you have a lot of energy.
