This 'n That

Hope's blog Coffee and Casting On is new. Check it out and welcome her to Blog World!

Design Star isn't as good without Clive. I tweeted HGTV and told them. I doubt that I'm the only one.

This has been an alternately busy and lazy weekend. Saturday Tina, Hope, and I went to Kingston Springs to the yarn shop there Ewe & Company (check them out on FB), so I could pick up my prize and check out her neat shop. I bought a red binder/case for knitting supplies while I was there. It's really neat. Not sure if you can tell, but there are places for needles, yarn, and all kinds of accessories.

After that we went to a BBQ place in White Bluff for lunch even though I'm leery about being there after that trial when I was sequestered! It was OK though. We spent the afternoon at Yarn Frenzy that's like Cheers to us. What fun! We laugh and talk about everything. Then Yvonne and I had Chinese food for dinner at Ming Court. Good day!

Froggy, Tug, and I kept a conversation going on Twitter. Then Tug and I texted and talked. I had a social day yesterday. Not so much today - my usual radio programs on NPR this morning, TV, FB for Scrabble and Family Feud, nap, blog reading, and more TV. See what I mean?

I talked with David again yesterday, and he said he'll probably get to go home tomorrow. I texted him today but didn't have a phone conversation. Hope we hear from him on his blog tomorrow. It will be so good to have him back! I've missed his recaps and posts and wit and just everything!

I didn't go to the Firefly Fine Arts Festival because it was too hot again. I almost had a sun stroke (really) last year. A long time ago I had heat exhaustion, and it's easy to get over-heated once that's happened. I hated to miss it because I really like things like that and wanted to see what was there. Last year the vendors were really good and had quality pieces. Maybe next year!

Tug has branched out and talks to me on the phone now. He's talking to David quite often, too! Watch out! Who could be next?

Auntie Flame you are smart to stay out of that heat... does it seem like the summers just keep getting hotter and hotter?!

That red knitting bag - very sharp. So glad David is on the mend!

Auntie that sounds like a wonderful weekend! I too talked to David and he should be home today or tommorrow. He sounded much better but is still on the oxygen-for now. I'm sure he is ready to get home and back to normal. And that Tug boat is something ain't he?

you are bring 'phone calls' back. Maybe we all should call each other

Sounds fine to me, V! I can text for a while, but my thumbs get tired of it. My cut-off time is not before 9:00 am! Or is that cut-on? :-)

I'm headed right over to Tina's blog. Joy, I'm with froggy that red bag has your name written all over it.
Boy howdy have I come a long way. Hope I can keep it up.
