Another Blanket

This blanket measures approx. 42" in diameter. Using US6 dpn and circulars and using Plymouth Yarn Dreamin', Lion Brand Yarn Pound Of Love and Caron Simply Soft, this nice blanket will be put into the charity box to await it's fate;~)
Found out that the border really needs to be larger for it to not curl up but the colors look good together.

New Tuna Salad Recipe For The New Year

Norm found a recipe that he wanted to try so yesterday we tried it and it was delicious! I take one stick of celery and chop it up, two green onions and chop them up, 12 oz can of Chunk Light tuna drained and flaked, and 1/2 c. of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing. Mix. Chill. There you have it. I like to add some cashews to mine which adds more crunch and goodness. Makes approx. 4-6 servings.

Something To Blog About!!

I voted:~D One of the workers thanked me for coming out to vote. I said that it was a privilege. I'm so grateful to be able to have my voice count. It really wasn't so long ago that women didn't have the right to vote. We all need to be mindful of the great blessings afforded to us. Now if we would just reflect upon the great wrongs being committed by our country and strive towards a culture of life and not one of such that all to readily embraces death. May God have mercy upon this country and this world. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen!
