Pictures, Pictures and more Pictures

I've promised you pictures and now I have them. They are proof that I have been busy. LOL. By the way, before I post pictures, thank you to everyone who said a prayer or kept Truman in your thoughts. Tuesday he was finally taken off his antibiotics and will be checked again in 4 weeks to make sure he can staff off of them.

Ok, here we go. Lets start with yesterday. My daughter turned 21. We had a great day. It went way too fast, but we had a lot of fun. Her friends and co-workers really showed how much they cared for her. It was wonderful. Now she wanted to make her cake and she did. She loves Oreo's so she made a Oreo cake with Oreo pudding filling. DIVINE.

We met up with her boyfriend at the new Starbucks and spent an hour there cutting up and having a good time. (bad picture, taken with cell phone)

Then a few weeks back we went to Tennessee to see my mom. I mentioned that we had went to the county fair while up there. Here is proof. This is their version of a petting zoo. Check out the goat on top of the turtle.

And I have been knitting. I've been on this Tam kick. Though I'm working on every project I have on needles trying to finish them. (I need the needles for other things and refuse to buy more) LOL. So here are a few of the tams I've done the past week or so. The last picture is a detail of the wool that I am crazy about. It's think and thin and just wonderful to work with. I got it at JoAnn's and made the tam in about 2 hours. I was excited.

I have one more tam started that is also wool, but is on size 3 needles and will be fair isle. I can't wait to get to the color work.

I've miss blogging. It's so frustrating to have just enough time in the day to read a few blogs and not jump in and participate. But, hopefully with some of the decisions I've made lately and getting my Avon business started I can make enough that I'm not running in a hundred different directions. By the way thank you again to those who signed up on my Avon mailing list. Very much appreciated.
