I'm Lavender

I'm in Monterey, CA right now. After packing tons of stuff, I still managed to forget some things. I packed the AC adapter and the camera doohickey which allows me to charge the digital camera. Unfortunately I forgot the USB cable and am unable to download photos until I return home.

I'm not doing as much knitting as I had thought I would during this trip. :-( I did take my Mom's vest with me but haven't finished the Right Front section yet. I forgot to bring the Back Section and Left Front section, so I wouldn't be able to proceed further since the instructions say to seam the shoulders after finishing the Right Front section.

The weather is nice here. I get to hear seagulls outside our room, a refreshing change from the cacophonous crows in my neighborhood at home. Miss M is having a great time and behaving nicely. She's starting to say embarrassing things in public. We were having dinner at Schooner's (at the Monterey Plaza Hotel) where we sat next to another table with a younger baby. The woman turned to Miss M to ask her, "how old are you?" Miss M replied, "Three years old." After which the woman commented, "Oh, you're a big girl." To which Miss M stated, "I go poopoo in the potty!" Oh gosh, that was embarrassing. There's a little background you need to know about why Miss M said this. We're in the process of potty training and we tell her that "big girls" use the potty or toilet.

We stopped by Knitting By The Sea in Carmel, it's a nice little store. I don't think I will make it to Monarch Knitting in Pacific Grove during this trip.


I got this from Barbara. Purple is one of my favorite colors so I'd be happy with any of the results from this little quiz. If you look at my yarn stash, you would see that it is heavy in shades of purple. Of course this doesn't explain why I feel like I'm always knitting with green. Hmmm, how do you explain that?


You Are Lavender

You are a sweet person with a very soft personality.

People become easily entranced with you. They seem to glow around you.

You have a quiet energy that can keep you active late into the night.

Even if you aren't the life of the party, you definitely keep the party going.

Sounds like a very relaxing trip. What a cute store. Can't wait to see your pictures.

My daughter use to call every man in uniform "Daddy" it was more a question Daddy? Since we live in a Navy town it soon got really embarrassing. Then again she was only 11 months old when my dh went to sea for six months.
Sounds like a great trip. Enjoy

Any parent who has ever handled potty training would understand Miss M's pride! It certainly gave me a laugh.

Purple is my favorite color too - I'm a grape it says! Have fun in Monterey. My favorite restaurant there is AJ Spurs near Marina Dunes. Western theme and lots of yummy food. Great with kids. Don't worry about Miss M - could be worse. My Mom's friend was babysitting her grandkids and in the bath the girl asked about the boy's P. The Grandma said, that's a ***** and boys have them. She thought she had escaped easily as the little girl said nothing more. Then the next day while checking out of the grocery store the little girl looked at the clerk and said, "you're a boy - do you have a P?" The Grandma wanted to crawl under a rock!
