Do you like to fly on an aeroplane?

I am not afraid of flying, but my body does not do well when flying.

I have motion sickness from the minute we set off on the runway to the minute we land and the plane stops.  Add in that it's always a night flight and I cannot sleep, so I am exhausted by the time we land; it makes for a very unpleasant seven hours or more.  If you need confirmation just ask my hubby and dad who have both flown with me and can attest to how much a pain in the butt I am๐Ÿ˜

This is generally how I look, wish me luck!!

Must remember to buy gravol!!!  I am actually feeling a bit green around the gills just thinking it about it๐Ÿ˜•

Each bag contains a pattern, ball of yarn (enough to make an adult hat) a set of needles and a stitch marker.
 I picked all bright colours for this set.
They are going to a ladies/girls group in Northern Manitoba and they will be learning to knit.  Any kits leftover I told the organizer to donate them to someone in their community.  I also included extra patterns and a couple of free knitting kits for a bookmark and a soft toy I got in magazines.

I plan on putting together another box in a couple of months time.

Those are just some of the subjects I discussed with my soon to be 6 year old grandson the other night. Back story; I babysat the boys while...
