Good-bye to 2005!

Good Morning! I have been up and busy already today...I made french toast, called my friend Terri, and invited her to walk w/ my dog and I around the lake (exersize=more fun w/ friends); then I went online and entered "Quilt Visionsl" for the FIRST time; and now on to my next project. This Christmas break has gone too fast, as usual. As you can see, I am making an attempt to be consistent about my blogging.
But first; I will have a little "Day Spa" at home, and then I will feel more like facing this dreary day. I am still knitting on my "ribbon Poncho" that I put on hold last year--I got so frustrated with the twisting of the (beautiful**%$##) ribbbon. I have finally hit upon a solution, though, accidentally; I had wound the ribbon onto a flat cardboard (about 9X11) and then, I found that only helps if the cardboard is kept lying FLAT. I can unroll the cardboard in advance of knitting the row, and in this way there is almost no twisting. But, it is rather time consuming; but worth it when it will be finished and all shiny and cool! (I don't think I will be planning anymore knitted ribbon projects for awhile!)
I hope I haven't lost all of my readers when I neglected to update all fall! I am still quite frustrated by the Photo addition portion of it all; I cannot seem to get the photos from the folders to the blog!
Maybe if I sat down and read my Picasa directions it would help?
I really enjoy reading other peoples' blogs more than my own--you all seem to have much more interesting lives than my little familia!
I guess that is the same reason that I don't write or email much! (Not to mention-my typing stinks!) Here's hoping I will have lot's of interesting news in 2006!
Happy New Year to ALL!!
