Christmas Dinner at Mom’s and running out of yarn 12.26.2011

Whoohoo….so the holidays are over with and it’s safe to go to the grocery store again.  Hopefully, people will be in a better mood and not so full of stress and ugliness.  Tomorrow morning I’ll take a little ride to Culpeper to buy some meat from Wilson’s Meat Market.  Time for some turkey necks, gizzards and a steak or two. 

I had an awesome weekend of NO work what so ever.   Two days off in a row…ha, I didn’t know how to act.   I spent most of the time relaxing and crocheting.  Oh…never mind,  I did wash my car on Saturday.

Yesterday I went to see my mom and pop for dinner.  Mom had cooked this terrific roast of lamb with potatoes, gravy, broccoli salad and red cabbage.  She sent some home with me and that’s what I had today.  That’s the first time I’ve ever had lamb.  It’s different, and I liked it.  After dinner, we sat and talked with coffee and apple cake.  I’ll have to get the recipe for that broccoli salad.  I know she put in broccoli, red onions, and raisins, but I don’t know what she put in the dressing.   Anyway, needless to say, I did not get on the scale this morning.

My blanket, afghan, or whatever you want to call it, is ready to be put together.  I now have 128 pieces.

I ran out of yarn three times and could not find the same color anywhere, so I ended up getting a different color than I started with.  Hopefully, it won’t look too weird, but it really doesn’t matter since I made it for me and it will serve its purpose.

Well, it’s time for hot tea, some food, and LDN…then it’s bedtime for me.
