Amigurumi you know what is? No, it isn't some kind of Japanese torture, it is KNITTING or Crocheting in Japanese! The Lion website had a reference to it, and I don't know what happened to my grandmother's collection. She had a friend who had crocheted a whole bunch of characters..dogs, cats etc that I used to play with. They were in her cabinet...I wish I knew what happened to them. She also had some that were made using kimono fabric too.

but, anyways...I find books like this in the Japanese book stores at the Japanese markets....they are always fascinating to me...I hope you find them fascinating too.

Cell Phone vs Bible

Cell phone vs Bible


I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cellphone?

What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?

What if we flipped through it several times a day?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?

What if we used it to receive messages from the text?

What if we gave it to Kids as gifts?

What if we used it when we traveled?

What if we used it in case of emergency?

What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?

This is something to make you go....hmm...where is my Bible?

Oh, and one more thing..

Unlike our cell phone, we don't have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill...

And no dropped calls!
Makes you stop and think "where are my priorities?"
-A friend sent this to me, and I thought I would put this on my does make you think about what our priorities are........
It is sad, but I think sometimes, I put more priority into yarn...oops....GULP!!!

Knitting a New pattern

Well, after my computer crashed from a virus or something..I have had to start all over again...not on my blog, but, on building up the data in my, I learned another lesson...don't forget to backup all the time, even if your computer is relatively NEW!

Tori and I went to Las Vegas, and before we left, I got some of the LION ORGANIC cotton yarn at Michaels...and found this nice pattern from BERNAT yarn...and started knitting this pattern. It is pretty, but I am having a learning disability with this one. I have knitted it about 4 times now, and find that I am making silly mistakes in not remember which row I am on, or which pattern I am doing...eek! I hope i have enough interest in it to finish it because it is knitting up nicely.

However...I got sick...can you get sick from your computer's virus???? lol

anyways..I think it is probably heat exhaustion or dehydration! I don' t think I have had it, but I am sure drinking alot of water and gatorade like stuff now!
