I am having such a good time on my vacation. I am doing what I want, when I want, for as long as I want. At first I thought I was being selfish, but I am starting to feel rested, so I must be doing the right thing.
On Friday, I had Dad duty, and just puttered around the house, cleaning bathrooms and such.
Not much going on here Saturday. Just working on projects. Here is a picture taken Saturday night, waiting for the rain...
Since I took a little nap Saturday (two hours, LOL), I was up until midnight. BUT, I finished my teal scarf. YAY! Got it washed and started the blocking process on Sunday. Of course, due to the humidity, it is still drying. LOL The color in the first picture is the true color. You will notice my blocking pads...those would be children's play mats. Work just as same as the blocking pads and only half the cost. LOL
So...that left me with no "hurry up" projects for Sunday. Crocheted one skein on my blanket and then started a small cross stitch project. I wasn't really ready to make a commitment on my barn project, so thought this would be a nice break. It's been so long, I almost forgot how to start! LOL I'll post a picture next post.
And, we GOT rain! Only half an inch, but I can already see another burst of green on the hills.
My son has a dear friend in Iowa that is in need of a knitted scarf. I told him that I would be happy to work on one. I'd like to have it done before Christmas, at the latest mid-January. My son said that black and grey would be perfect. Odd, I have no black yarn in my stash. Gee, guess I need to go to the yarn shop. LOL
At one of my favorite shops, I found these...a merino black, a grey, and a cream. Baby Boy said that a ribbed pattern would be best and thinks that the color blocks would be a great idea. I'm a little excited to get started!
Representing the "Coastal Cow"...
This is the "Charity Cow". It was sponsored by a non-profit organization that works with our county fair.
And last, the "Cow-cu-lations Cow"...
Been working on my kindness goals...definitely smiled at a stranger, gave a compliment to the USPS person for looking for a missing package, threw away someone's trash at the grocery store, and am thankful for the rain. Not bad...four out of five. LOL
Wishing each of you an amazing week. For my US peeps, Happy Thanksgiving! Be kind to one another.
