Just a short note to let you know we arrived back home last night safely. It was very long trip but no heavy traffic at all. I'm glad that we left yesterday instead of today. The weather yesterday was so fabulous for the trip. Today is so gloomy and raining! We missed seeing the snow here as it was reported last Wednesday. We already missed the warm weather down there!!! I'm not ready for cold weather. *sniffling*

Been busy doing the laundry and quick shopping to get the black shelf for the stereo. DH is installing the pieces together and will hook up the new stereo tonight.

Will post some pictures tomorrow. I'm so glad that I don't have to go to work till Wednesday. I want to get over with X-mas shopping tomorrow or Tuesday.

Black Friday

I survived Black Friday!!! My brother-in-law and his wife go to shopping at midnight every year and invited me and my DH to join with them. I would never thought about going shopping at midnight! I'm not fond of going shopping in crowded place but I survived!!! We drove up to Orlando and stood in a long line in CompUSA. I never seen so many people there and there were so wild!!! People were running, scuffling and grabbing all the items. We got ourselves brand new TiVo for 20 bucks (after mail-in for rebate)! Very good deal!!! We went over to Best Buy at 3 am and stood in a very long line waiting for the store to open at 5 am! Good thing that the Starbuck at Barnes and Nobles opened at 3 a.m.! I had Gingerbread Latte and it sure kept me awake! So yummy!! I finally got my DH a new stereo for his BELATED (I mean... real real real LATE) birthday! His birthday was last December 16th! I have to think of what should I get him for his birthday next month! Believe me, I will get him something real soon instead of waiting for next year.

We got back home this morning at 9:30 am and went to bed right away!

Mental note to self: Do not go shopping on Black Friday again!

I'm here in sunny place!!!


I'm in Sebring, Florida - 50 miles south of Orlando. The weather here is so FABULOUS!!! Sunny and warm!! We arrived here last Monday morning. We left last Sunday at 11 a.m. and drove all the way here. We stopped somewhere in Georgia for two hours taking nap. I told my DH that I rather be staying in the hotel and get 8 hours of sleep!!! My DH didn't want to because he was so excited to get here real fast! I know I'm wimp!

Last two days I haven't do anything but knitting!!!! I'm done with Everyday Cardigan but need to block the pieces first before I seam them together. I will do it when I get back to Maryland. I'm done knitting one Fuzzy slipper and plan to knit the second one. Let's recap on this from last entry that I posted last Saturday.

* Everyday Cardigan sweater- DONE!!!!
* Second sock needs to be completed to match the first sock- not yet
* Green yarns for Fuzzy Feet - One more to go!!!
* Red and white yarns for mini-stocking ornaments - I knitted one on the road last Sunday.... few more to go!!!
* White yarns for felted snowman - not yet
* Red yarn for socks (Nancy Bush's newest book) - not yet
* Grey yarn for DH's Hat- not yet

Hope you have a GREAT Thanksgiving day!!!

Change of Plan!

We will leave to Florida tomorrow morning instead of this Monday!!! Yay yay!!!!! My DH's friend is very sick and is not able to go to the Redskin game. We don't want to go without her but gave away the tickets to her friends.

I'm all packed up and ready to go. Approximately 18 hours driving!! I brought two bags of knitting projects. I know I'm CRAZY but I just want to bring them with me in case I'm done with the project and decide what project I will make - depend on my mood. I'm bringing my stuff along with me.....

* Everyday Cardigan sweater
* Second sock needs to be completed to match the first sock
* Green yarns for Fuzzy Feet
* Red and white yarns for mini-stocking ornaments
* White yarns for felted snowman
* Red yarn for socks (Nancy Bush's newest book)
* Grey yarn for DH's Hat

Yesterday was most productive day for me. I knitted Everyday Cardigan sweater. I finished back piece and front right side piece. Very fast knitting!!! I also completed two mini-stockings.

I'm going to bring my laptop with me. Will post some picutres during the trip. I'm going to bed now!!! Good night!!!

Vacation Begins Today!!!

I'm sooooooooooo happy that I'm off today till Wednesday, November 30th!!!! We decide to go down to Florida this Monday morning. Actually, we plan to go this Sunday till my DH paged me this morning that he forgot that he promised his friends that we would go to Redskins game this Sunday!!! Darn!!! I can't believe that we forgot all about it. But that's alright because I'm on vacation!!!! I spent all morning to do some errands - haircut, post office to hold the mail, and bank to get moola!! I definitely will bring several projects with me during the trip in Florida!!!!

Yesterday was last day of knitting class. I had so much fun teaching people how to knit. I'm very pleased with few ladies completed their projects. They really want me to teach them again in spring semester. Of course, I would be happy to do and plan to expand more classes - Basic Knitting, Intermediate class and Sock knitting class. Hopefully, we will create our Deaf Knitters gathering once a month.

Oh boy, I never feel soooooo happy that I don't have to go to work till Nov. 30th!!! I have sooo much knitting to do (not that I'm complaining but I'm soooooo happy!!!)

(p.s. - I moved Frappr to sidebar - join me!!!)

I'm sooooo TIRED!!

My brain is FRIED!!! I never feel sooooo tired today!!! I feel like I'm bunny energizer since the school starts in August. Look like the batteries need to be recharged anytime!!! I asked for a week off starting next Friday and hope that my boss approves it. I need to hide under my blanket and sleep forever!!!!

Not much is knitting news because my right wrist is acting up again! It must be the weather or overdid on sock knitting during my lunch break today.

Sighs!!! Seriously, I?m soooooo tired and my mind is totally blank. I?m going to bed early tonight!!! Sweet dream!

It's the one year anniversary of my blog!

Happy Blog-iversary to me!!!

Today marks the one year anniversary of my blog. I can?t believe how fast this past year went. After joining Secret Pal 2, I was not able to get in Secret Pal 3 because I didn't have my own blog. I want to thank Jackie for encouraging and helping me getting start with this blog. I was able to join Secret Pal 4, 5, and 6 activites.

I've been inspired by reading other people's blogs and get me really motivated knitting. Not only this, it gives me an opportunity to join knit-a-long group, FiberRAOK, and Sockknitters group.

Thank you so much for being such a supportive and fun group of people!!!

So join me now, Happy Birthday, Dear Blog!!! Happy Birthday to you!!
