Just a lazy kind of Saturday. I went and picked up my mail today and 2 more birthday cards were there. Keep them coming and I'll celebrate it all year. ha ha. I really did appreciate them. Then off to the library to pick up my books before they returned them to shelves. One is a crochet book (my newest obsession) and John Grisham's new book "The Litigators". I only read a few pages and was totally hooked on it. I have never been a fan. I read the Firm many many moons ago, and may have read another one of his, but can't be sure. This one grabbed me right away, and that's what I like in a book. So I am anxious to read it.
Along with reading, I am almost done a wavy kind of scarf. When it's done, I am going to see if my neighbor will "model" it so I can take a picture of it. I love the way it is coming out. And the color is so pretty.
I would like to turn my hobby into a business if at all possible. Living on my disability gets really hard sometimes, and a little extra money would be welcomed.
My brain goes so much faster than my hands, ha ha. I always have good intentions, but sometimes have a hard time doing something with them. ha ha.
I got this from another blog and really wanted to put it on here so I could refer back to it. This is from Crochet with Raymond
