The 5 hour road trip on Thursday gave me the most time to put on these 12 rows. I am happy to say I am now down to this much of the 'frogged' yarn.
When I started the rework, I had two of these cakes to put back in. This means I am half way done with the reworking. This will be my main focus until it is completed. Everything else can just wait.
I started this half sock just before we left last Sunday morning. It won't take long to complete but the sweater is #1 right now.
The 2 plants on the left are jalapeno peppers and the 2 on the right are cherry tomatoes. There is also a cilantro behind one of the peppers but it is a little short and I am not sure it is going to make it. It is a bit 'stringy'. These are the only plants that sprouted out of the 8 I planted. Since these get to be pretty large, I will stick with them until they stop producing and then decide what to plant next. My other garden of basil and cherry tomatoes are still growing. The tomato is just about done so will be taking those out and will remove the basil at the same time. Lettuce will be planted in it once it is all cleaned and ready for new pods.
Her happy frog hat. Just looking at it makes me smile. Also, while we were gone, I gave her family my car to use incase the dad needed to go anywhere while the girls were at school and work. Good thing too. The batteries in both of their cars died that week, just days apart.
Let's just say, I managed to pay for our trip just from playing slots! The other excitement we had was getting stuck in an elevator for an hour. Yup, that is not something I care to repeat anytime soon! Luckily we were on the first floor when the elevator decided not to work anymore. I am claustrophobic, so this was not the greatest experience for me. The other lucky thing is the doors would open about 4 inches every couple of minutes so I could see out. That helped quite a bit. There were only 3 of us on the elevator at the time which was a blessing too. The hotel was so nice and even gave us a complimentary dinner at their steak house for the next time we go there.
