Level 1 day 7

not bad really did not want to workout but I was done before I knew it. Two more days on level 1.

Baby starcrossed beret

the pattern is working up wonderfully! not to far from the finish line. Working makes me too tired to knit in to the night like I am used to. So this hat is slow going. I am ready to start the everyway wrap but the 9's are busy.

T/J Day 3

today was hard my arms are shaking I hate those side lunges I did all of the last set of cardio so I guess I am getting better . Glad I did it.

I know I know

I know I did not workout sat or sun my excuse was going to be sabbath but since i did not work out on sun i could not say that. Tell the truth lazy. But I weighed in even though i was not supposed to until wednesday cause that is when i started but I lost 2 lbs I am 174! now it will probably come back . I got to thnking that 20 mins was not going to be ebough you are supposed to work out for an hour but it seems to be working. I will work out today. i was playing with the kids and i didisome pretty good butt kicks just cannot dothem for a long as she wants to. I have 8 more days on level one then onto level two. Since I took that two day break I am probably back to square one. But I have nothing but time so hey let's use it. and I started another slouchy beret i am using 9's for the whole thing hopefully it is smaller to fit lelas head. i wore mine this moring mind you I just made it last night she was like let me wear it. Girl bye!

Slouchy beret

my beret is done I need to block about to do it now. Great pattern I want to do it again. One without flaws.

Fingerless mitts cowl sets

doing my best to christmas knit i have two sets down. the brown pair of mitts came out too big for me I like my mitts snug even thought they will probably stretch out later. That puts me at a crossroads. should i make them big or make them snug and let them stretch out? I casted on 39 for the brown ones and feel they are too big. so i cut back to 32 sts and I love them. I tplan to make a black pair and a cream and black pair who all is getting these Tack and maybe Lela's teacher. Lela wants a set I want a set. the mitt pattern came from Bond Buzz 17 and the cowl is just the bond hat pattern with a few less rows and ribbing at the top.

Homecoming 09

Livingstone's homecoming was the second week in October and I am just now posting pics. Jill and Ki were there too but did not get to get a pic with them. we had a great time as usual. Theme was flirt. I was as flirty as could be with it being fall not sure if it was going to be hot or cold. And it was Hot on Sat! we shut down both parties. Did not lay it down til 5 both nights i was tired Sat that when Alexis went and got her feet done I went to sleep. And when i got home sun i gave the children to my husband and slept for the rest of the day.


Lela and Mekhi had a good time. I forgot to take some shots of Mekhi at the door. He is walking now and so since he can stand on his on I should have snapped some. But lela is wearing the same outfit as last year i thought i would put a twist on it with my half wig from homecoming. She got a better haul than last year. Lela's outfit was multifunctional she wore it friday as Wog from the witch who was afraid of witches. That is probably not a halloween outfit Mekhi has on but it worked and they had a great time.
