I forgot about the holiday weekend until yesterday. Chris got a three day weekend and we spent our time cleaning up the house. I did get a few more rows crocheted on the baby blanket I am making but didn’t get a chance to do anything more with the tie blanket. I listen to Mom’s Morning Show each day and I think tomorrow I am not going to browse around online while listening, but rather work on the blanket. I know I can get the rest of the blanket finished in that time.
I’m working on finally starting my craft podcast! I’m seeing all these new podcasts coming out and I’ve wanted to start this for over a year – it is about time I just do it. I have a lot of emails in draft mode to various people for interviews and a huge list of ideas. I am still deciding on a day of the week to have each show come out, but I’ll keep you updated. I need to find music for this week’s show and put it together then it’s finished.
Twenty years ago today my Grandpa passed away. I grew up next door to him and I was 9 and in the fourth grade when it happened. I loved living next door to my Grandparents! We’ll get that chance again soon and I can’t wait to be moments away from my Grandma again. My Grandpa always wore those sweaters that buttoned up with three or four buttons on the bottom part and had two pockets. He always had mini snickers and though he went blind years before I was born, always knew who walked in the door, even if us kids were in packs. After he died my Grandma kept mini snickers in a bucket above her sink. I still cry when I think about him, but I suppose that is normal. I didn’t get a chance to talk to my Grandma today though, since it was a holiday all my other relatives were at her house and on the internet (my cousin lives with her and he is too cheap (yeah I said cheap! Hahahaha) to pay for a second phone line for the internet – however he stands dialup I’ll never know…) so the phone was constantly busy.
