Gutfeld for Mayor

I love Greg Gutfeld, his monologues on The Five are often off the charts. I find him very funny, and very smart. I am also a huge Red Eye fan. I don't believe Weiner should be allowed to run for office ever again, who is say he wont do what he did before and that is just morally wrong. The problem is our politicians have no morals, values, or ethics anymore. Because voter fraud seems to be ok in many states, I would find a way to illegally vote for him.

Gully Washer

Had a storm blow through, dropped them temp 20 degrees in less than 15 minutes, 60-75 mph wind, trees are a mess, power out and I saw a semi in a ditch. I got 1.5" rain in 30 minutes. Here is some of it.

Camp Loopy Project 2 2013

For July we have to do something we have been wanting to do that has been done over a 1,000 times. Did you get that? I have been wanting to make Hey Teach, a summer lace sweater. I wanted to do this in eggplant but they did not have enough, so I am using salmon which is a summer color and giving it long sleeves. Need to find some buttons, must look in my stash.

What to do

with leftover Lamb's Pride yarn. I have several colors about 10-20 yards each. So I found a recipe for dryer balls on facebook yesterday so my weekend project is dryer balls. I have heard from many people this is all they use, helps with soft clothes and static. So my first batch is done and will give them a try when I do laundry next week.

Bravo Cheerios

So there is a new Cheerios commercial that is causing a lot of controversy. Mom is white, the child is a cocoa color and dad is black. Who cares? There are those who want to make something ugly out of everything perhaps because there life is so lacking in anything positive. Instead of making something ugly out of this we need to be celebrating that in this day and age mom and dad still live together and they are raising their child together. I think besides the little girl being extremely cute; children take things literally and when her mom tells her Cheerios make your heart healthy she pours the cereal on her dad's heart. When dad wakes up he is covered in Cheerios and the commercial ends. There is nothing in this commercial that needs to be ugly. Most commercials today are stupid and this rates up there as one of my favs. Bravo Cheerios for making a commercial that puts a positive spin on life.

Camp Loopy Project One

I was going to make a shawl for my project for a Christmas present, but I decided instead to make and design a pair of socks. I call them Crinkled because when they are not on my feet they remind me of those shirts that looked like they would fit a Barbie doll and then when you put them on they stretched out.
