Okay, let's give this a try. I haven't been able to update my blog because everytime I log in, my page gets redirected to random ads. I have no idea why but this time, it stayed on here.
Here we are near the end of August 2012 and there is a storm brewing out there, Tropical Storm Isaac, who is expected to become a Hurricane really soon. Although we have a hurricane survivial kit all put together, the Mr. forgot my importan items - hooks and yarn. What, is he expecting me to be bored to tears if the power is out and I can't get online? Of course he has his fishing gear together. He said that is essential. I suppose...
My soldier son, Paul, went back to Afghanistan last May (or was it April?) and is expected to come back home March 2013. He is already planning a Spring Break trip. I sure do miss him.
As far as hooking goes, I only did one hat for the Ravelympics...oopsie...Ravellenic Games. The USIOC had a problem with Ravelry using ...lympics... so the name was changed. I wonder, though, did they issue a cease-and-desist letter to Scooby Doo and the Laff-A-Lympics?
I do have a baby blanket on the hook for my grandson that was born in January, on Friday the 13th. I need to get that finished so that I can start my holiday hooking. Why yes, the holidays are coming up fast. It's just two blocks away (not quite around the corner yet but close).
Until next time, keep on hooking.
