Thankful Tuesdays

My friend out in California sent me this movie...I think to give me perspective on my toe surgery. Today I am thankful that my toe only has a bone chip that can be removed and this is not happening to my body.

What do you think?? Crazy huh?? I guess it is said that he had a fungus that was left untreated and that is the results. INSANE!!! I hope he find the help he needs to support his family. If you want to know more check out this article here.

I am very thankful for the life I have and even though our health care is expensive and we can't always afford it but we do have it available if we can.

Knitting news...I had a tough time with the Rainbow sock and for now it has been ripped back to the toe. When I figure out what to do with it..I will share more. I need to learn how to do short rows properly....this is my goal. If not I may end up casting on for another sock and putting it on the back burner until I'm mentally ready to tackle it again. I did work on my Pedicure socks a little and brought those as my travel knitting today.

I'm hoping to get a chance this evening to record my podcast since I was at work until late last night and then headed to dinner with two of my sisters, my nephew, and a brother-in-law. I don't think I've spent enough time with my family lately so I need to do better with that.

Happy Knitting!!

PS...that friend out in California designs fabric and she actually designed the fabric for this shirt from Forever 21. Check it out. She has some even more exciting fabric designs but this is one that I told her that she's "famous" for. She claims she is going to open an online store soon. I'll share it with you when she gets her butt in gear and does it. (hint, hint, hint)


  1. Oh my!! We really do have a lot to be grateful for.

  2. Yowsa! Congrats on your monkeys btw. Great job. p.s. in general sports are iffy with me. I like to rah rah with the rest of them, but not really die hard.

  3. Just listened to the podcast. Was really good! I like that it is only 10 minutes, so I can prep a skein of yarn to dye in the time it takes to listen. Looking forward to the next one!

  4. OK, I read fungus and skipped along... no video for me! Sorry.
    The link to your friends shirt wouldn't work???


Thank you for leaving a comment! I appreciate them all!
