I felt my ears itching yesterday, way down deep, which is a sure sign that a cold is coming on. Sure enough, I felt crappy last night, complete with stopped up nose, coughing, and that yucky feeling in my chest. Have you seen that Curious George episode called "The Inside Story"? Well, Toots the jazz-singing germ is inside me today. So I took a sickie and stayed in bed.

The upside is I am completely caught up on Glee (finally!), Project Runway, and Quintuplet Surprise. Also, the blanket I have been crocheting for WC for absolutely forever is almost done and I am working on the edging today and actually hope to finish.

Oh, you didn't know I knew how to crochet? You and Mr. Sasha!

My grandmother taught me to crochet at a very young age, and through the years I've picked it up from time to time, but evidently Mr. Sasha had no clue about that. One night, after we'd been married about 3 years (together for probably 1o), he came home from work and found me working on a rather large blanket. He looked at me like he had no idea who I was!

"Did you do that today? As in, just learn how and do all that?"

Nope, I said. Been working on it for years, but I guess not in front of you!

Too funny! (I don't know how to read a pattern, BTW, just kind of do whatever looks good to me....)

Oooh, that is bee-you-tee-ful! I haven't done any blankets--seems like they'd take FOREVER. Maybe someday I'll venture into afghan territory. (But probably not into Afghan territory.)

Aww, hope you feel better! Sounds like you had a productive day, at least!

My mom crochets on and off too. She'll do a LOT for awhile and then nothing for a long while. She tried to teach me when I was a kid but I was more interested in playing with my dolls and friends so I never really learned.

I'm very impressed!

Sorry you are sick...get better! Maybe you need to cover up w/ that pretty blanket.
