Got some new books in the mail. There's some really cute crochet patterns in the Happy Hooker...really want to make the crocheted cowboy hat. Finally got the Knit Two book too, there's been so many books I've been wanting to read that this has just been sitting in my wish list area of amazon. I'm still reading the Charlaine Harris books though so when I'm finished with those I'll start this one.

Yoga socks are finished!
Haven't used them yet because haven't felt well from all the dental work.
Two Crocheted Chemo Hats with roses on them for the Hearts of Love group.
And finished the Valentine cloth!

Now when my hubby gets home from somewhere he's been...everyone knows because Fuji howls like a coyote for him and whines really, really loud. She tilts her head back and literally howls up into the air...so funny! I'll have to record that one day!

Karoake soy silk/wool.
These were in the mailbox when I got home. What a great treat to get...perfect timing!
Made me smile but with my mouth numb only part of it came up!:) Bet you thought I was going to get a tooth photo huh? Did think of it but decided not to...maybe next time!:)
For the next three weeks the blog posts on Tuesdays will be Tooth Tuesdays. Had an endodontic appt. today...another in two weeks...and Jimmy has a dentist appt. next Tuesday...soooo the next three Tuesdays are teeth days!
Had the endodontic appt. today and yup had to have another root canal. I'm extra special because my roots curve at the ends and I have more roots than the normal person...lucky me. I even got to have "special" shots...one in the side of my face that's supposed to feel like a bruise but like I told the doctor I will bruise anyways...then the other shot got to go right through the middle of the tooth. They have to numb me like a horse because redheads don't take anesthesia well...do we hear another lucky me! Came home took some more advil, grabbed an ice pack, turned on my ocean sound machine and knocked out for a couple of hours. I go back in two weeks for the second part of the root canal. He does it in two sessions so he makes sure to get out any infection etc. that might creep up. Fuji gave me lots of good kisses to make it better. Gonna go have some tea and crochet a bit.

I've been calling the dentists trying to get in to see them sooner than Thursday because I'm in soooo much pain. The dentist thinks its the root canal that I had done in October or the tooth next to it. Either way I'm in lots of pain. They finally called me back and are getting me in tomorrow. Never thought I'd look forward to seeing an Endodontist! So in the meantime I've been popping Advil like its candy every couple of hours...finally knocked out for a nap so got some rest from being up all night throbbing!
I did get to my knitting group meeting yesterday. Its nice to see what everyone is working on, what yarn they're using, etc. I also called my TN buddy, but just got her machine. I haven't heard from her in awhile and am hoping she is ok and I miss her lots!
Movie Monday....Rented Wanted and Meet Dave this weekend.... Wanted was good...had to really follow along which is kind of hard when I'm trying to knit :); Angelina Jolie is in this so very much an action movie, she is too skinny in this though, think she needs some lasagna!:) Meet Dave has Eddie Murphy so of course was a cute comedy, Jimmy was able to enjoy this one. He's from outer space and comes to earth but his body is his spaceship..funny. Usually we rent more for the weekend but got there late.
On the needles: the cast on part of the Dream in Color shrug (haven't worked on it except for casting on); the Valentine cloth; the Peppermint Patty socks; and my yoga socks (which are almost done.)
It was a little overcast today so made some oatmeal raisin cookies, knitted, listened to some podcasts and rested. Also heard from a good friend I knew in 7/8th grade on Facebook today...whats funny is she doesn't live far from me either! Its been so cool talking to her today! Take care!

Made this the night before while waiting for Jimmy at swimming. It's crocheted and called a mesh cloth. I just love the color. Its Bernat Handicrafter cotton, which I tried to get more at JoAnn's but they don't have anymore...weird!

Finally finished one of the Peppermint Patty socks....had to rip it out the first time because it wasn't long enough. I was/am worrying about having enough for the second sock but this weighed 40gms. and I have 75gms on the ball...I guess looks are deceiving. Every fourth stitch is a cable so this is taking quite a long time especially since its on size 1 needles!

Yesterday was spent cleaning, laundry, ironing, vacuuming, chocolate chip cookie making, listening to podcasts day....Today I'm hoping to go to a local knitting group meeting. Haven't done the Wii Fit in a couple of days because I'm hurting so bad from it...guess I should listen to it and take it easy, work up to it...blah blah, yes I did it gung ho and have been doing over an hour a day! No wonder I can barely move/walk!
James got a new zune for Christmas so I got his old one, which isn't even old, he got it last year for Christmas, but of course his new one has more room. Anyways I'm so addicted to podcasts now! I've listened to Nevernotknitting since Alana first started it but always listened to it off the computer so.....I just downloaded CogKNITive because she's in my local knitting group...love, love, love it! Then I found Knit Naturally, which I've been friends with TX Dawn since I started blogging but never knew she started a podcast! Love, love, love it tooooo! Then I found Lime and Violet, which is an awesome one, lots of catching up on this one I need to do. Another one I just love is Brown-Eyed Mom....love, love this one but she stopped podcasting last year due to a loss...I pray for her and her family during this hard time. I've downloaded some more but haven't had time to listen to them yet. What one's are your favorites?

Jimmy and I got some new crocs in the mail too, they were on sale for $14.99! Wow! I got the bright red ones and he chose the blue. Such a great price....I love Crocs! Wish they'd make a clear pair! I've thought of getting the clear Converse but don't want sweaty feet...
Took the car to get the windows tinted today. Been doing laundry and changing beds. Gonna go have a little tea and knit a bit! Tootles!

Another superstition is to not wash clothes on this day. It is believed that if you do a loved one will die. The two above are practiced religiously by my family and have since I was little. I was surprised to find more New Years superstitions but we won't mention them here in case they be adopted by my family!:) Do you have any rituals you do for New Years?
May we all have a wonderful New Years!
