Happy Memorial Day! I took a break last night from doing charity crocheting & knitted socks last night, but didn't get too far - I was too tired by the time I finally crawled into bed.

I've been on a roll lately making items for charity! It feels good, but on the other hand, I'm worried about money. Not the yarn; I get my yarn for pretty cheap, most of the time. My only real "yarn" expense is my sock yarn, but I get a lot of pleasure out of making socks & wearing them, so it's okay. But, all this charity stuff I'm making, I have to either ship or deliver somewhere - and gas at $2.08 a gallon, I don't want to travel far.

Well, I've been on a roll crocheting lately - and all charity stuff, too, good for me. I'm going to be making blankets for the local Linus chapter, and I'm also making stuff for a local animal shelter, and I still knit socks for CIC, and I joined an "All Crafts for Charity" group that I'll regularly be sending stuff to. It's a lot of baby stuff, which I'm not really interested in, but once in a while is okay. They also do the Ships Project, which I've beenwanting to do, but needing motivation.

yesterday yard saling I managed to pick up 2 boxes of yarn - about the size of a box of copy paper that holds 10 packs of paper - for $1. What a deal! It's all just acylics, but still, good for charity stuff. I also got a small bag of yarn, mostly baby weight, for $1. N ot such a deal, but combined with the other yarn not bad at all! No yard sale patterns or hooks though :(. We did get a brand new, indoor grill, family size, for $2. I think that was our other "big" find.

I have an FO to report! I ordered some sock yarn from smileys and they sent me 2 skeins of the wrong yarn, so I ended up with 2 skeins of chenille. I made a little bag out of it, andit's so cute, but what the heck am I ever going to do with it??

Nada in crochet news - just some personal stuff.

I feel like such a bad journaler; I know I haven't been around all that much. The last couple of weeks have been busy & draining emotionally. We never did make it away 2 weeks ago; my great aunt (and a very dear, sweet woman at that) passed away, so I had to do my duties & go to the wake & the funeral with my mom. Emotionally draining, indeed.

More truck problems; work has been crazy, and I've just been exhausted all the time. I just haven't had the oompth... to do much of anything. I certainly haven't been going online, at all. And in between all this, my mother & sister in law had birthdays, my mom's is today, SIL also got engaged, and of course, Mother's Day is Sunday. We're celebrating all these things on Saturday.

I desperately need to make some changes to my website; especially the crochet socks webring page. But, alas, the thought of doing so makes me want to cry.
