Now on to a happier subject. I have spent all week at the lake, just coming home last night. While there I made these mittens.
I also started a baby blanket of little granny squares. One of you recently made one like this, but I cannot remember who made it or the name of the pattern. I will try to remember to take a picture when I go back out. I have about 20 squares done right now.
I also started a new pair of socks last night using the plain vanilla pattern and a one by one ribbed cuff.
I got up at 5 AM this morning to go to the grocery store. I wanted to be there when they opened, before the crowds came. And it worked! There were only about 10 of us in the entire store. I had my mask on and I ran around stocking up on the things that for some reason I can never get on the grocery pick-up orders. They always say that certain items are out of stock and yet this morning there were plenty on the shelves. Things like sliced cheese! Every time I have put cheese on my order it has come back out of stock. I wonder why? I still was unable to find Clorox or Lysol wipes, but I still have one container here at home.
Now I should be able to get by doing grocery pick up orders again for a few months. That is a relief. The events of this last week brought home just how fragile life is. So many people seem to not be taking any of this seriously. I am trying to do everything I can to keep myself and Dennis safe in these trying times.
I’m praying for you all to stay healthy. Thank you again for all of the love and support you’ve shown to me this past week. I appreciate it more than you can know.
Blessings and love, Betsy
