I am off this weekend. I made a big batch of strawberry kombucha.
I went to Borders this evening and picked out a knitting novel to read along with a new journal to write in.

Last weekend I worked at a Mini Show. It was called Mini takes the states. They started in LA and drove all over the states in a group.
The group of them arrived last weekend in Denver at Infinity Park.
I usually do not take a camera to work events on the weekend.
But, my Mom really wanted pictures of all the cars. If you want to see more pictures check out my flicker. Just click on any photo in my blog and it will bring you to my flicker account and you can see lots of Mini Coopers.

I love these mitts. I used two strands of yarn to make these. One was a sock yarn and the other was a Marble brand yarn.
I embroidered a sweet flower on them. They are a different pattern than I usually use called Toast.

I have been working 2 jobs and have not been blogging much. This is the first farmers market I have been able to attend.
It was really crowded and hot and parking was a nightmere.
But I am off from work this morning and thougth I would go looking for it after my spinning class.

Jeremiah just finished this puzzle yesterday.
I have been working quite a bit lately. I am working for a car dealership and working a second job on the weekends doing events in the Denver area.
Last night I worked at a block party in LODO (downtown Denver).
There was a band and lots of people in a closed off city block.

I am quite obsessed with knitting fingerless mitts. I must have at least 6 pairs that I have knit for myself.
I keep knitting them for others. I am always trying to change the pattern to make the perfect pair. This yarn had a color change so the pair is not the same color.
I admit I was a little late finishing my Mothers Day Shawl. Here is my Mom in her new summertime shawl.
The pattern is from a Noro book and it called Sursa.
I hand knit it in a cotton yarn I purchased in Ohio when we lived there.
I saw another shawl pattern made in the Fiberworks (the LYS) when I lived in Dayton. It was made with the same cotton yarn. I thought when the yarn was knit up it was the perfect weight for a summertime evening wrap.

I went home last week to visit my Grandfather. My Grandmother recently past away in an accident on the Ranch.
I will miss her dearly. I know I will see her again someday.
I will always love and cherish our time together Grandma.

2 cans reduced fat condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream FF
1 jar of Picante Sauce (used Pace Mild)
4 tsp. chili powder
4 cups chopped chicken cooked (I grilled it on the Foreman grill)
1 cup grated cheese (use what you like, I used WW grated)
7 Tortillas ( I used a low calorie brand, large size)
3 green onions (garnish)
Stir the soup not diluted, sour cream, picante sauce and chili powder
add chicken and cheese.
Fill the tortillas up leaving about 2 or 3 cups of filling to smother the top with. Sprinkle with extra cheese if you like and bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes covered. Garnish with green onions. I used a 9 X13 pan. I divided this up for my husbands lunches this week.
I made it with a rice side dish and corn.
Today, I made this pink angel food cake. I used a box mix and added
1/3 of a package of sugar free strawberry jello (dry) to the cake while mixing it up. I also added 1/2 of a container of extra large sprinkles.
I got the sprinkles at Bed Bath and Beyond.
Yesterday we went to Woodland Park, Colorado so my husband and his father could go on a hike. We started out in Colorado Springs at the Acadamy USAF Base. My MIL and I drove to Ferrish Memorial to pick up them 4 hours later.
