Hey, what can I say. Summer has gotten a hold of us here! LOL Let me try and catch you up on things since the 4th of July!!!! Well, this years fourth was a whooooooole boodle better than last years. Last year we were packing that moving truck while watching the fireworks over the top of the roof in FL. Then the fifth we were still packing, and had to go sign the papers for selling our house. This years fifth was just lounging around at home. Nice looong weekend! I think we had residual tiredness left over from last year when we just kept packing for like 60 hours straight, with only a 4 hour nap caught here or there on our bare floors. LOL
In knitting news the past week or so has been wonderful!!! I’ve gotten several adult hats made. I’m trying to do one for the Etsy shop, and then one for giveaway to keep things evened out. I’ve also gotten three neck warmers or infinity scarves whipped up. I lived in mine last winter, and now I *know* the need to keep your face, as well as your head covered when you are going to be outdoors for a stretch of time when it’s below freezing!
In weaving news… still working on the same strap that I was last time. Once that’s off the Inkle Loom I have just one more to make like it, and then I’ll have enough yardage to make up a pouch/small bag. My first attempt at using my weaving to make a useful item (I mean besides a belt or a curtain tie, ya know)
In Air Conditioning news… we had one of our AC’s go out at the beginning of the month, and then two days later, kapow, 101 degree heat! Blah! Luckily the day after that it rained, and was nice and cool in the mid 70’s most of the day! Nice porch sittin weather! Now we have AC back again, and I am freeeeeezing to death. But everyone else is much happier. So I’ve decided that since it is so cool now I am going to start back up working on the bigger baby blankets for the hospitals in need! I have a boodle of friends sending me squares, and I’m still working on the edges to those blankets that I put together in June. I need to get them finished off and mailed out, and start on this new round of squares!
Aaaaand, I am working on getting the home school evaluations done! CO law says only 3rd 5th 7th 9th and 11th grades need evals, so only two kiddo’s this year, and it looks like all the evaluators do the evals online, or over Skype! Easy peasy!
So, that’s about all from here. I’m going to be getting pictures of the stuff I’m working on, and hopefully get a picture blog up in a day or three. Still missing some things from the big computer switch over. Got my music back, but now Photoshop isn’t here. Got a way to look at .pdf’s now, but I’m missing some other little things. I gotta make a list of the things I need back on here I guess, and tack it up somewhere.
Anyway, off of here to watch a few toobz while I knit for a bit. Weekends coming up quick. I feel like I should have more to do around here, but I don’t. Summer is weird like that.
