Hello and good Morning!
How are you today? Gosh I slept so well last night. I am still feeling a bit dopey and I have been up for a little bit now. Soon my coffee will kick in.
My friend Carol did arrive yesterday despite having horrible traffic on the way up. For those of you familiar with the Blue Route...she endured about 6 exits of moving only at 9 miles an hour! Going home she decided to take Route 202 and back roads, but that was no better. Her trip was 2.5 hours! But, we had such a nice time and it was so good to see her again after more than a year.
We also found out about the lawn service and Colin & Mailing's yard. Turns out the lawn service mowed the back yard yesterday and they claim to have never done the front yard! I'm guessing one of C&M's neighbors got tired of the jungle look and took it upon themselves to at least mow the front. LOL Anyway, we are now on a 2 week schedule with the lawn service folks (still no contract in the mail and we have not paid a penny yet).
Meanwhile the kids are on their trip out west. They were in Guadalupe National Park, Carlsbad Caverns, White Sands and now are relaxing at La Posada in Santa Fe. We stayed there a number of years ago on a trip with my Dad and Damon & Austin. It is a beautiful resort and one of my favorite cities to visit. I believe they are off on a day trip to Taos today.
The mail did not disappoint yesterday! I was expecting yarn and it did arrive. YAY. First up we have Rowan Creative Linen in the color Oasis for a Shakerag Skirt.
I will not be casting on immediately as much as I would love to. The next few weeks will be flat out crazy busy at work and I would much rather cast on then I have more free time. Soon I hope.
Naturally a couple of other skeins jumped into my basket before I checked out. First up, another Crazy Zauerball skein.
As it turns out, C&M Plan to drive on part of Route 66 on their way back to TX, so this skein will become socks for the boy.
And this skein of Regia:
This skein may be destined to be another pair of socks for Fletch. Hard to tell from the skein, but once knit up, it should look like this:
The orange and browns remind me of Fall (guess that's why it's named Fall Night).
Time to buckle down and get to work. First, another cup of coffee is in order. Cheers to Thursday...we are on the cusp of the weekend!!
