ODDS AND ENDS

Hello out there in blogland-hope your August is going well. We've been actually having rather nice weather her in middle Tennessee-high 80's with lower humidity. Last year at this time, we were over 90 degrees for over a month with killer humidity. Still I've already got the fall fever!

When I was at my aunt's house earlier this summer, I found this old 1986 copy of Woman's Day magazine. I loved the afghan on the cover and have started making it. I like to crochet because it's easier on the arthritis in my hands than knitting. I LOVE granny squares too. Lets you use up all those scraps of yarn. And you should know by now, I love COLOR. So there you are...
We had the family birthday get-together for me last weekend. Here's my cake. See, even my family calls me Nerm. Isn't it pretty. Very good too. Thanks for all your sweet birthday wishes-that means alot to me.
More flowers (from Wendy)--I sure could get used to receiving flowers twice in one week!



I hesitated to put this photo in because I detest having my picture taken, but as they say, it is what it is. L-R: Me, Amy, Mother and my sister Gail.


I've been helping take care of Tanner this week since school doesn't start til next week and his preschool is out for the summer. So Kitty and I have been trading off. Here he is all outfitted for his scooter riding. We worked in the yard today too. Put all that energy to good use! He starts kindergarten next week and is so excited. I am too -can't wait to see what all he learns.


That wraps it up tonight. I'll be back soon. Lots of luv, Nerm

Aww It looks like you had a real fun party!

To answer your question on Caitlin. No, she doesn't dress up for the cooking shoots. She isn't the typical teen. She dresses up every day even though she is just around the house. My other daughter is the same way. Caitlin really stood out in her high school because she wore pretty dresses and vintage clothes pretty much every day. She rarely wears jeans and a tee shirt!:)

What fun stuff. I love the afgan. I used to hate them but now I love the shape and texture. Weird. I change as I age I guess. I hate pictures too. I still feel like I'm 30 inside but my body screams NOT TRUE. You're a doll Nerm, beautiful and lovely.

Love the cake....yummy!
