And on to some progess and stuff.  Besides still dealing with more of my parents issues, I am still managing to make things to warm my heart.  I have completed 4 rows now on my Daisy Granny Blanket.  Pictured here is only 3.  I am going to block the joined 3 rows, then join those later.

And to share another item I found at a yard sale on the weekend.....

It needs some work, like a can of dark pink spray paint, basket and crocheted seat cover ;).  Also wheels need some balancing.  Love the handle bars, just like I remember as a kid.  I spent an hour or so when I got it home polishing up the chrome fenders. Later, honey adjusted the handle bar height and seat for me.  After taking it for a spin in the neighbourhood, I didn't realize how much you feel the effects of the one speed bike on the knees.  LOL You know you're out of shape when. HAHA  Later on Sunday we also made it out to the beach for a while.  It was such a lovely day.

Have a good week everyone!
