Meryl and Barbie have a Commonality

It's been another weekend of being "under the weather."  At first, I thought it was just another allergy attack.  No such luck.  After I arrived home from teaching yesterday I was out for the count.  I only awoke long enough to eat a bowl of soup.  I slept in this morning, attended a meeting, then came back home and slept more.  If only I could shake this bug for good!

On the bright side of the news I found two more Famous Crocheters.  One is Meryl Streep.  The other is Barbie.  Yeah, I know, Barbie is a toy.  But she's a 40-year old toy and loved by all.  All except Ken, that is.  They got divorced a few years back.  I guess he wasn't bringing in enough revenue for Mattel.  All that gossip aside, most of us knew that Barbie was a knitter ... I mean after all, she has her own Knitting Toy that comes out every few years or so.  Even my daughter has one!  Barbie admits to being a crocheter in the movie, "The Princess and the Pauper." 

And, speaking of daughter's, mine is still working on that scarf.  She does a row now and then, and it's coming along nicely.  I don't want to push her into completing it, that's up to her.  But I did buy her three new colors to add to her scarf.  She'll get them for her upcoming birthday.  As for me, I'm going to go crawl back under the covers and poke my head out when the sun shines, or when I start to feel better.  Whichever comes first.

Sorry to hear that you have it too.  That's all I did yesterday was sleep.  I also have symptoms of an allergic reaction to something.  Hope you feel better, Dee!  Congrats also to the daughter on her scarf!  I know you don't want to push her, but I can't wait to see the results!  Hugs, Sheila
