Audery Hepburn

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

Breathless by Dean Koontz

This book had lots of characters, each with their own story.
But as I was reading this book, I thought How the heck is the author going to bring this all together?
I don't think that he did.
I have no idea where he was going in this Novel, and where ever he was going I am not sure that he got there.

The Weight of Shadows by Alison Strob

What happens to you in your childhood, can and usually does effect you for the rest of your life.
This is a Christian story about domestic violence.
At first I thought that the book was going to be to predictable.
But it did not turn out that way at all.
This book takes a look at forgiveness, and shows how important it is to
forgive others, but more importantly how to forgive yourself, and accept God's Love!


I cast on a shawl today. I am using fingering weight yarn, and size 6 needles. I have just finished the set-up chart, I am supposed to have 46 stitches on my needles and I do! It is a very simple shawl, with 4 charts. No mistakes so far. Wish me luck!!!

The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold

This book is so very weird. It takes place over 24 hours. A woman kills her Mother, then has sex with her best friends son. Then thinks about killing herself. And the book ends. Just like that.

I knit this pretty Calorimetry for my Granddaughter. I made it a little smaller by using sport weight yarn, and size 6 needles. It fits her perfectly!

I have a new pair of slippers

I was going to knit these slippers for my husband. But they came out to small for him. So I get a brand new pair of slippers for this Fall and Winter. Lucky me!! The pattern for these slippers can be found here I used Red Heart yarn in the color Delft Blue. I used size 9 knitting needles. You hold 2 strands of yarn together through out the pattern.
