Where Has the Time Gone.

I can't believe another month is about to end and I've been I don't know where. O.K. I really know I've been on Face book, I've admitted it. I have enjoyed the stupid little games you get sucked into, Farm-ville, Cafe World, and so many others. But if you are on Face book feel free to make me a friend. We can play silly game together they do take up time.

Things at the restaurant are going great. Business has been good and it is becoming my only life. It seems like when ever I make plans someone get sick and I have to work. That's the way it goes, I guess. Tony and Dad have been making changes since I last posted pictures, they have been painting, putting up new doors and now they are going to put up some saloon doors. The whole atmosphere is becoming more homey and more to the families liking.

So you can see they have been busy. I don't know what Tony's going to do when Dad and Mom head back to California. Which is coming soon, Mom has gotten her release from the Dr. Woo, her knee doctor, so they can head back anytime.

Last Friday I did have a girls day out. YEA!!!! Debi Woods and I went to Local Yarn Shops, it was fun. We headed down to Burlington to Knot Just Yarn, didn't see any thing we wanted so we headed to Mt. Vernon to Wild Fibers. I found a yarn that I hadn't seen before, it's called Spud & Chloe. This yarn is a fine sock, from Peru,  the blend is 80% superwash wool and 20% silk. The colors are bright and bold, I'm going to knit the toe and heels out of the blue and the body in fuschia. The socks will be for a young lady, she's thirteen so these colors will look good. I'm also thinking about using the pattern Double Bubble. Debi and I then headed out to Anacortes to Ana-Cross Stitch, a great shop.  We didn't buy anything but I did like the shop and checked out the book Joy of Sox. A must have for my collection of books. We arounded out the day by going to Beach Basket Yarn & Gifts in Birch Bay for their knitting hour. They have a great group of ladies to knit with I have enjoyed going out there on Friday, so if you are in the area stop by they are knitting from 3 - 5 pm. I ended the evening at the Nuthouse Grill for a steak and beer a great day.

I've been meaning to blog this because I love this picture. We have a large Walnut tree and this year there was a lot of nuts on the tree. Every year we have problems with the crows, getting into the tree and taking all the nuts. I run outside yelling and screaming at them like a mad woman all the time to chase them out of the tree. This year Dad came up with a different plan......... Hide in a the trees and wait and shoot. OK some times it works and sometimes not so well. He still hasn't gotten one but still trying. We have gotten almost all the nuts now and will be leaving the rest for the crows. so we do share I just wish they would wait till we let them have their share.
Well that's it for now. Keep warm and those sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting socks, Bye.

The restaurant looks really warm and cozy, very inviting in these photos. One of these days I'm going to make it over your way and stop in!

Funny story about crows - one year a crow got stuck in my parents garage. I don't remember why it couldn't fly out on it's own, but they caught it and released it. That year the crows didn't touch their cherry tree.

The restaurant looks very nice. And yes, isn't Facebook the biggest time-waster ever? And I love wasting time on it. As you know. giggle.
