Changes 21 and 22 & "Twilight"

In my last post I forgot to add some of my daily changes since Smitty's death, so will add them tonight.

Number 21. I don't get nearly as much knitting done as I used to. When ever we went anywhere in the car or truck, I would take along some knitting. Now that I have to do my own driving (I hate driving), I don't even think to grab some on the way out. I do have one friend, Kathy, who drives and knits at red lights.

Number 22. For some reason I now pay bills as they come in. I used to save them up until our Social Security and Retirement came in. I think that I'm afraid of not having enough money and wanting to be on top of finances.

I had a wonderfully fun evening with Beth and my daughter, Terre. We went to the matinee to see Twilight from the book by Stephenie Meyer, and then out to dinner. I am currently reading the third book, Eclipse, in her series which is basically a vampire love saga. I think the film was very well done, close to the book and all that. The scenery was beautiful and I kept wondering if it was really filmed in the state of Washington. My old and dear friend Mac lives near Seattle and I thought of him throughout the film.

Well Hello Maple, Well I don't check your blog often, but I did this morning and there I'm mentioned.
Looked at Howes tractor auction site WOW WOW WOW that's alot of toy tractors, how did he even know if he had that one when he bought a new one. I knew he had quite a few but not that many.
Missed you when the girls came to knit hopefully next time.
thinking of you, have a warm and filling Thanksgiving.

Your friend,
Kathy Nelson

I am sorry you aren't getting as much knitting done these days. But it is hard when you have so much to do.

I am enjoying the Twilight books. I am currently reading #4. Definitely silly brain candy stuff. But perfect to just enjoy. I don't think I will see the movie in the theatre. But it looks like it would be entertaining.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I bought the Twilight books for the girls for Christmas. (and then I will borrow them...hehe)

The hats are beautiful as always.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love your hats! Reading your Changes has been a really interesting experience, by the way.
