Back from Vacation

Drove from Memphis to Rhode Island for a 10 day vacation. Here we are parked at a friend's house for the trip! It was so nice to go home, but property costs, taxes, etc. is too much for us to move back up there, so we try to go every couple of years! :)

We took the new trailer for what hubby said was a "shake-down" trip and only found a few small problem that we have to get fixed. Will have to schedule the trailer into the shop over the next couple of weeks since we have no plans for going away until end of June.

A sampling of what we brought back! Count them.....35 lobsters! Had the family over for Memorial Day and we dug in!

Knitting for the trip up and back was:

14 comfortghan squares

and 15 baby hats!

All are for charities of one kind or another!

Austin is 3 months old now and up to 11 pounds! He is soooo cute! :)

Happy Knitting all!

Phew! Back up and Running

There were the socks I sent to my monkey swap pal in Australia. Mel said she is enjoying them very much! Yeah!!!!

Here are pictures of all the goodies I received from Barbara for the Spring Fling Coffee Swap! What a wonderful package. Homemade bread, coffee, ginger snaps (my favorite); coffee mug, note pads, flowers, a garden pot, sticker, etc. etc.

Love on-line yarn, in a very pretty color, hand dyed scarf (daughter already took it!) and the piece de resistance: A hand painted pie bird, with a reminder for what swap! How cool is that? Thank you so much Barbara and so sorry for posting so late! You were wonderful!

And if you are wondering where the heck I have been (blogger cut off the left of this picture!) Here is our new travel trailer. You can see the other one in the back ground (we gave this one to our daughter) So we are off to travel around. Leaving tonight for a 10-day trip to New England (I know gas is at $4 a gallon!) I gave up my trip to Italy to pay for the trailer. Didn't know if I could justify $20,000 on a 10 day trip to Italy vs. getting a bigger trailer and traveling around the US on our vacations. Decided to see the U.S. :)

And a current picture of our cutie pie. Austin is doing great. He had surgery for 2 hernias but everything went well and he's growing. He's probably still small for his age as he's 3 months now and 11 lbs. He is a cutie and it appears the "colicky" stage is over with. The crying for 45 minutes every night was getting to everyone! LOL

Computer is Down!

My laptop computer is down right now and hubby still doesn't have it up and running.

I finished my monkey socks for Monkey Swap#4 and they are on their way to my pal. I hope she likes them.

I received my box in for the Spring Fling Coffee Swap and it was wonderful. I will post pictures as soon as I can and update this post. It was filled with coffee, bread, flowers, a container, a beautiful pie bird, etc. Thank you so much for the package. Unfortunately, I am trying to do this from work and the box is at home! :( I'm sure I will be up and running soon and will update at that time. Please have patience with me!
