Good Times

Here is a pictorial of May at its finest.


My cousin and his wife sharing a special kiss at their wedding.


Me being silly with my other cousin ๐Ÿ™‚ Have you ever seen that Verizon commercial? I look just like the first daughter lol!


My friend Shawn about to “Pop, Lock, and Drop It”. I think she almost injured herself ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


Hubby serving food to the ladies at my friend’s bridal shower. The expression tells it all…he shouldn’t have walked in unannounced hee hee.


My cousin hanging out with her nephew for the first time ๐Ÿ˜€


My mom and my cousin shopping in China Town, NYC. Can you tell how happy she was to be there?


This one is my all time favorite. I think little Princessa was going to either bless him with magical powers or wake him up by wacking him with her wand. Either way, it would have been entertaining if her dad didn’t stop her LOL!

I’m looking forward to the summer since I have AC in my car, at work and at home. By the grace of God, they will continue to work through out the summer. I’ll give you a sneak peak at my knitted wears for my trip to Europe later.

The witty knitter

Posted in General, Needlework at 8:23 pm by royalempress

One day I was minding my own business when a fellow employee walked up to me in the lunch room and sarcasticly said, “You look like an old lady sitting there knitting away….” At first, I wasn’t sure how to react. My first thoughts were to:

A) Calmly and wittingly say, “Knitting isn’t just for grandmas anymore” and continue knitting.
B) Give him a blank stare then suddenly stick him with a knitting needle.
C) Take it as a compliment since the generations before us have paved the way.

I opted for B without stabbing him since I knew the security office was around the corner. After a 5 second blank stare, I replied, “I see wisdom doesn’t come with age for everyone” and walked away. Normally, knitting keeps me calm and poised. That day, I wasn’t in the mood to be played with or made fun of. I guess it could have been worse if I opted for B in its entirety. Lucky him. What can I say, it was one of those days.

On a brighter note:

Thank you SP for the wonderful gifts. I have so much purple yarn now that I’m considering making a patchwork (knit) blanket ๐Ÿ™‚ It will be so soft and cudlly. I can’t wait!
