~Rainy Day~

Yesterday was a very cozy, rainy day. It rained most of the day. If I don't have to be out in the rain, I just love rainy days!

In the morning I went to a ladies Bible study that our church is having. We're going through the book of Philippians, and it has been a great time of learning and growing in God's Word. I'm glad that I can participate in it.

When I got home, I had leftovers for lunch and then snuggled up on the couch to crochet.



Little did I know that I would be crocheting the same row three times over! I got to the end and realized:



I was out of yarn! Ack! So I pulled it back half way, and crocheted tighter. Still not enough, but I had gained a little bit. So I pulled it all the way out, and crocheted both rows very tightly. I ended up with about a yard of yarn leftover. Phew!

I had put stew in the crock pot for dinner, but it didn't cook in time for dinner. Ah, what to do? I stuck it in the pressure cooker for about five minutes, and then it was done! It turned out really good; next time I'll have to start it earlier in the day!

In the evening, Kevin and I played games, and I crocheted some more on my afghan. Now that the weather is colder, it is nice to have an afghan to work on! I am hoping, hoping, hoping that I don't have to buy more yarn, but I may have to. We'll see!

Today's weather is sunnier...but still cool. I hope whatever the weather, that you have a great day!

Good thing you had a pressure cooker! : ) I've had the very same thing happen to me and have had to finish cooking the meal on the stove.

I hope you have a great day too!

I've had that happen with the crock pot before too.

And your day sounds lovely!--A perfect fall day. (o:

Tammy,
I love your wave blanket...it's got a bit more "curve" to the wave, as opposed to the more zig-zag with sharper angles that I've seen in other places. Would you be willing to share what book/source you got your pattern?

Beautiful work!

Becky, you'll find the pattern information in this post.

I love spending a rainy day like that! Also, I've done the same thing with the crocheting (trying to get just a wee bit more yarn).

Ohhhh, rainy days are just lovely. Today is a day off after parent/teacher conferences and I can't wait to snuggle up, drink some tea, read a book, and work on my crochet projects. Your blanket looks beautiful! Hope you have a lovely weekend!
