Happy Sweet Valentines Day! I love blogging and I love your comments, lurks and love. We had our valentine dinner out last night. We were in Chicago area seeing friends for dinner so that’ll do. No crowds.
One rather gross happening. I was having a few sips of my diet Coke, when I found something in the glass. It was just a piece of plastic, the kind the mints at the hostess station are packed in, but YUCK. ew ew and more ew. The waitress apologized and brought me new…that kind of does it for me as far as going back. I demand spotless when we are paying for dinner out.
Fireman told me he misses getting me chocolates. I’ve been on Weight watchers for 2 years this weekend. I told him I’d rather go for a manicure with no points and no guilt. The way the price of chocolates goes these days, I think the manicure is also cheaper!
One of my favorite things about Valentines Day is that Westminster Dog show corresponds with it yearly. My sister sent me this cupcake photo. Her Gordon setter club had their annual dinner last week and aren’t these cupcakes awesome?
You know I love dogs but we don’t have any currently. Four cats, one being Fezzik the almost dog, makes up for that. The only time I wish for a dog is when I’m out for a walk. And I do wish then. Someday I think It will happen again for us. Until then I watch the dog show and think about those amazing creatures. I know its a fix. They are already predicting Rudy the German Shepard will win.
Little Valentine Love Beatles is so hard to photograph. And I know its fuzzy but I think he deserves a blog spot on heart day. He let my great niece lug him around without a peep. It made her crazy happy.
So I had a knitting revelation last night in the car. See my uneven garter panels that I was knitting last week ? Awful stitch uniformity in garter. I was on the purl side of the back of my new knit up (first photo) and I thought, well that looks like garter. And that looks much better than my garter. Alright ladies, thinking caps on: Could I knit the panels again, doing stockinette on the front, and purl on the back and use the backside as my fronts? or is that not really garter? Does that make any sense?
