Thanks Blue,

I was glad to have it finished. I gave it to the soon to be parents today and they seemed really pleased with it. 

I am also working on knitting them a set of 8 baby washcloths too. They each have something different baby style- a bottle, a rattle, carriage, pacifier, diaper pin, moon and stars, and my two favorites in the set...a baby handprint and a baby footprint too. 

Two of the 8 are finished and blocked and two others are halfway finished. 

Hope you’ve had a good weekend and holiday. I’ve made two batches of crockpot apple butter this weekend and I’m about give out. It’s a tiring task even when using a crockpot.

Hey Molly! Hope you’ve had a good holiday weekend. I highly recommend taking up some hobby. I have way too many of them and can’t imagine life without hobbies. My house would be a lot less cluttered if I gave up a few hobbies. I have considered getting rid of my piano because I don’t play it anymore. Every time I try to play it DaVinci tries to pull my hand away from the keys. I think it might hurt his ears so I have pretty much given up that hobby. 

As for DaVinci, he is doing great health wise. I have considered an animal behaviorist though because he barks at people like he is going to eat them up. It scares people but once he can get to them he starts licking them to death. 

We are heading to Cherokee NC for three days next Sunday and plan to do a train ride. This is a consolation trip as we were supposed to be leaving from Charleston SC this Saturday on a cruise to Bermuda. I canceled the cruise and with this hurricane hanging around out there I am glad I did. Anyway, so he will be in boarding for four days. If he was more sociable around other people and other dogs we could take him places with us, but as high strung as he is that isn’t an option at all.

JR,

OMG....that cinnamon apple butter sounds so deliciously Yummy. I Love apple butter and would love to try some cinnamon butter. Making apple butter in crock pots??!! Wow, you are SO crafty. How did you learn to do all of that stuff!! Like you the peanut butter and apple butter does not sound like something I would like...I will take your word about that tasting great. 

Keep doing those crafts and your non-smoking journey. See you at the Clubhouse soon.

Let's keep kicking Cig butt...How Sweet it is!!

Gloria,

I am back home from my trip. The train ride was really an awesome experience. 

We went to the casino in Cherokee NC and I was playing machines that I am familiar with(all of them in smoking areas). Every time someone sitting beside me smoking it really bothered me. That was surprising to me because I was concerned that being that close to smoking would make me want a cigarette. If anything, it made me glad I no longer smoke. The casino has a rather small non smoking area and I ended up playing there a large part of the time. 

I am ready to get to the Clubhouse. Seems like time is moving slowly the past month. 

Hope you are having a great week!

Congratulations to you as well!!  Yep, just a couple more weeks and we'll be there! 

That's great you were able to go to the casino and not want to smoke.  I'm not there yet, in fact, the last month has been particularly hard- probably because this is my favorite time of the year and it's filled with a bunch of new triggers! 

But, we're almost there!!

Big Congrats on 11 months...Love the new star btw. Glad you enjoyed Cherokee casino. I went there when I retired to celebrate my retirement plus the trip happened to be on my birthday. I did not like the group/bus trip there: it took 6.5 hrs and we went into Tenn before we went to Cherokee. Cherokee is the nearest casino to me--about 2.5 hrs from where I live. I still plan to go to Vegas (on my bucket list!!) to celebrate my retirement and now to celebrate quitting smoking. I just don't want to go by myself: peeps are so bad. I may have to breakdown and go alone if I really want to go. I don't want to disappear in the desert never to be seen again...be an unsolved mystery!!stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye I watch too many real life crime shows about serial killers and everything on ID channel.

Glad you enjoyed your trip to Cherokee. I am still holding out for Vegas now.

One more month...no more stars for you: your key awaits. Molly and I eagerly awaiting your arrival to the Clubhouse. Hope the month will not be too long for you. We got the light on for you.relaxed

Freedom since 30 July 2018...How Sweet it is!!!
