The Nuthouse Grill

Things at the work are going good. It's been slow this week but that is the business, good weeks and slow weeks. You just have to roll with the punches. Tony is having problems with that factor, as an owner he wants more but don't we all.

Shair and her family were up here last weekend and they stopped by had dinner. They had to have a picture outside the building. It was cold and a little windy. It was good to see them and we had a great visit. so now that they know where we are hopefully they won't be strangers. I know Arizona is now that close but when they are in the area. It's fun to see family and friends.

At Halloween we had a scary pirate handing out candy. We're not for sure where he came from but we found him wondering around the restaurant. He wound up in the kitchen I don't know if he was begging for food or just bothering the kitchen help. they had to chase him out out the kitchen. 
Of course he found the hostess and hung out at the hostess stand. They at least got some work done. I'm not kidding he just won't go away, he stayed for most of the evening. Mom finally took the Old Pirate home. Dad did a great job, he did scare a few little kids.
We will be closed on Thanksgiving, so I guess I have to cook a dinner something I haven't done in long time. I've always had to work, so now I get to cook should be fun. I love turkey leftovers.
Well that it on the Restaurant. I'll update on my knitting and sock yarn clubs next. Keep dry and warm, keep those sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting socks, Bye.

It's been awhile so I'm going to do this in several post, hopefully this week but who knows with my crazy life.

Last week I had lunch with the girls from my knitting group from the Sumas library. We went to one of the gals home. Audry has the most gorgeous log cabin, she took us for a tour around and she is the most crafty person I think I know. The most beautiful quilts, hook rug, pine needle baskets and so much more. She thinks she's not good at anything how little she knows, I would love to have half her talent. She also spins her own yarn. Audry has been showing me how to spin on a wheel and she let me bring it home. OMG I love spinning on a wheel. I am slowly getting the hang of it and am having a blast. It make me want one more now I have to decide what I want. OK I'm getting ahead of myself. I still  need to get the hang of it now but I am enjoying myself. Here is a picture of my single ply spinning. It's not even or spun consistent but I'm making string for now.
I'm using roving that I got with some of my first spindles, it's not the greatest but its good to play with and to figure out what I'm doing. I've got some nicer roving but I don't want to play with it.
OK Gena, let me know how you are doing?
You've got a wheel so its time to practice and start to make some string. then to take the string and make into yarn. take the yarn and make it into something.
Well that's what I've been doing in my spinning world.
Keep warm and those sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting socks, Bye.

Mom and Dad

Well that time of year has come and Mom and Dad have left for California, they should be there now. Life around is a little bit quieter, no one knocking at the door, tapping at my window. Tony says it's to quiet also at the restaurant. So they've been gone only a few days and their missing presence is missed.
I've been knitting and will get into that later today. Work is calling and I have to get ready.
