Hello on a Monday, and as promised we have a winner for Week 2 of our giveaways for Christmas in July! There weren't as many entries for the actual prize this week as there had been for last week, but I think some people either just don't do counted cross-stitch, or have tried it and don't care for it. Which I get - I know very few people who love doing all of the craft things they have tried.
Anyway, Ye Olde Randome Numbber Generatore was consulted, and without any bias, it told me that the winner for Week 2 is:
Kim in Oregon!!!
This was her answer to the question: What is your favorite TV show ever?
"I think I'll have to say either 'The West Wing' or 'Sports Night.' They're sort of related."
In my opinion, these are excellent choices! I also really liked both of these shows, and as a matter of fact, we are currently on Season 4 of our re-watch of "The West Wing." And I also get what she means about them being somewhat related.
So please join me in a round of applause to congratulate Kim! Please send your name and mailing address to me at thekittyknitterATverizonDOTnet, and I'll let you know when the package is on the way.
Thanks to all who participated, you'll have another shot at things in a couple of days. 😊

I really enjoyed reading about the shows people like(d). I'm also pleased because all of them were things I knew about, so I didn't feel like I'd missed out on something good that everyone else knew about. God forbid, I miss a good TV show, you know ...
Vacation is over as of today. At least I don't actually have to go into the building for work until tomorrow, that helps some. But I am grateful first of all that I had vacation time that I could take, and second of all, that I enjoyed every minute of it so much! Now to look forward to the next day off/vacation time.
We had a nice weekend, not a lot of activity, but it was very enjoyable to just spend some quiet time together. Yesterday was a day when I should have just not even tried at all to knit, though. Have you ever picked up your knitting, and for whatever reason, it's like you have either never knit at all, or you have completely forgotten how it works? That was me yesterday. Anything in progress I tried to work on, I ended up ripping out. And then I attempted to start a pair of socks, and that was just 100% a disaster. So late in the afternoon, I just decided to put everything away, out of immediate sight, and read for a while instead. Hopefully when I pick anything up next time, I'll remember how to use knitting needles!
