Lucky Day Diary Jan 22, 2011

Amaryllis Jan 22, 2011
It's Saturday!  I have my Lottery ticket and........

1. Luckily, I managed to find a birthday card (it only took 5 stores) that didn't tell the 17-teen-year-old turning 18, to "go wild" or worse on his birthday. What ever happened to jokes about Acne - maybe that's not funny to an 18-year-old!

2. Also, fortunately, I found a great article about the 400th anniversary of the King James version of the bible, that I was able to write about (about which I was able to write) in an earlier blog (Song of Solomon) - well where would you be without eccentrics!

3. Another knitting friend Brenda who reads the Guardian (Britain) sent me a link to some fun knitting articles.  Here's the lucky link for you to enjoy too! There are instructions for knitting a Jack Russell Terrier among other things. Actually I would make it bigger & felt it.

4. Fortunately, my camera and it's battery (charged) were here - not at work- to take pictures of this gorgeous Amaryllis that has been on our dinning room table since Boxing Day. It has 3 stalks all with four blooms each and it looks like another stalk is starting. This was really a lucky buy on my husband's part for my Christmas present. My Amaryllis to him needs a real shot of "luck." These are not the gifts of the Magi; but they are magical, if and when they bloom. I'll keep you posted.

This is the second week of my Lucky diary posts and things are still pretty up and tomorrow we have a birthday party!
