Have you ever wanted to spend an entire weekend doing nothing but knitting and playing with wool? Well, that's what it was like for three fantastic days this past weekend! From dyeing sock yarn to preparing wool for felting ... from learning new stitches to new patterns ... all while getting to stay in a creaky, old bed and breakfast with lots of history! I'll post more later, but wanted to get a few photos up and running while I had a moment to myself!

My sister sent me a new digital camera! So as soon as I load on the software and figure out how to use it properly, I'll take photos of some of the more special cards. I know, I know ... thinking about Christmas cards in March??? Well, it never hurts to be prepared!

I made it a habit when ordering to actually say, "Could I have (however many) Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, no pickle, no pickle juice, and no pickle pieces, please." But after about a year or so, I thought maybe they could recognize my voice, so I eventually stopped being so specific.
Well, the other day, we ordered the same, classic sandwiches, no pickle. We brought them home and each person picked out his/her sandwich and began to eat. All of a sudden, Kent cried out in disgust, "There's got to be a pickle in here! It tastes awful!"
We opened up his bun to find not one pickle, not even two pickles, no ... not three or four ... not even five or six, but SEVEN! SEVEN pickles were on his sandwich!!! We couldn't believe it! We started laughing! Amelia grabbed his bag and turned it over to see the familiar red sticker that usually says, in big, bold letters, NO PICKLE. But this time, it said, "EXTRA PICKLES!"

I have a love/hate relationship with the day after the migraine goes away ... I feel numb, like I need to walk on eggshells or the headache might come back ... but it feels so good to have it be gone that I'm euphoric!
Sometimes I wonder if my migraines will ever go away for good. I surely wish they would.
