I start goofing off w/ my blog (basically adding my friend Cathy's to my list of blogs I read) when I realize that on my dashboard I have something like 40 unmoderated comments.
Unmoderated comments? Hmmmmmmmm. I have comments that were needing my attention!
I have been a terrible to my readers---You DO love me! You really really do!

Today we dropped Libby off at the groomers, went scouting for a sewing machine & then home for lunch. Hunter had to work today (so much for time with families prior to deployment!) so by the time he got home the wee one wasn't wanting to nap. We got Libby from the groomers, & played w her for a bit before getting ready to go out to dinner.
We had a nice dinner @ Carrabba's & then went to Barnes & Noble where the wee one played with the train table. They STILL do not have the Nicky Epstein felted bag book so off to Amazon I go! A quick breeze thru Marshall's (found the Laura Ashley comforter I want for her new bed on sale----must go tomorrow!!) & we were on our way home. Of course she conked out on the way home since she didn't nap today.
Tonight I worked on my Yahoo Dishcloth mid-month KAL. It's a lacy pattern which is very fun for me. I like the themed cloths but especially like the mid month's as they usually focus on a technique.
My bag for the ITE III is felted & dry. I like how it came out but the pattern looks slightly crooked so I think I'm going to rewet it & redry it tomorrow. If I do say so myself it came out great. The colors are pretty together & I like the pattern on the bag.

Hunter's grandmother died tonight @ 715 pm.
This picture is of her, my MIL, Hunter & the wee one at 1 week old.
Berylie was a beautiful woman---inside & out. I will never forget her telling a family friend that she always wanted to be a role model to her girls (she had 3 from her first marriage & a step daughter & step son from her 2nd). Her children sought her opinion & advice even they they were grandparents themselves (well my MIL anyway!).
My engagement ring is hers from her first marriage (she married her high school sweetheart & was widowed at a very young age). I've always felt honored to wear it---and today even more so. I remember when we saw her & GlennDaddy on Thanksgiving 2002. Hunter had just returned home from Kuwait & we were going to get married a week later. Berylie held my hand, looked at the ring & said "I am so happy you're wearing it" It felt like a blessing.
