Today has been one of those days where I am just running here and there.....lots of errands. I received my first Social Security Check today and celebrated by getting a pedicure. My feet are feeling great. Every time I get one I tell myself that every night I will put lotion on my feet so they stay soft .....and I will this time!

After running around all morning, I came home and put together chicken noodle soup. I love making it. The recipe came from Country Living Magazine. Altogether I have subscribed to Country Living for probably over 20 years and I have made only one recipe from the thousands that have been featured and it is their Chicken Noodle Soup. Everyone loves it. It is still on their web-site.

My day ended by meeting my knitting/crocheting friends at Borders for an over priced coffee drink and knitting! We talk about everything including knitting! I am making socks for Christmas gifts. Everyone expects them . I make different colorways and different weights of yarn. They choose and I have fun all year knitting them.

By the way, I have finished The Garden Journal blocks ....all of them! And I only have a small section to assemble. While I am putting the sections together I am making a few changes in fabrics. That is time consuming and probably un-necessary! But, I can't stop myself.

Such a beautiful full moon out there tonight. Enjoy.


  1. What a lovely post!
    I am the same way about my feet..I start out taking care of them but then somehow I go to bed without thinking to do the lotion...I love getting a pedicure. I could use a manicure right now.
    Your knitting group sounds like so much is always fun to get together with friends..the soup sounds lovely..I'm afraid Honey Bear isn't a fan of noodles.
    I have been a fan of Country Living you remember the column they used to have called: Simple Country Pleasures? The lady who wrote it passed away..I loved that column, she talked about junkin and walks and soup and canning and her dogs...Just wanted to move in with her.
    Well, I'm off soon for errands and to lunch with my friend, Rene.
    Have a good day, my friend
