Seems I am getting a later than normal start today in writing my YOP blog. It has been a nice lazy morning that I have been enjoying. Isn't that the way Sundays are supposed to be? Lazy? It is one of the reasons we go to church on Saturday evening. Not to mention it gives a nice 'end' to the week and sets up the beginning of the next week. Double win-win.
My knitting this week kind of took a back seat to other things that needed to get completed. So this is all I have to show for the week.
I finished my third 1/2 sock. I now have plenty of them but will probably still make more down the road, just because I have so much leftover sock yarn.
Then I worked a bit on my RCR socks.
Once finished the gusset I decided to put them on magic loop to complete them. Not thinking I will complete them this week. There are other things I want to do while our weather is super nice here.
Speaking of weather......The last 3 days we have been in the 90's here. While I am not quite ready for the heat to hit, it is a good reminder I need to get some outside stuff completed before it gets so warm I don't want to spend copious amounts of time outside. Granted, we are expecting rain this coming week and a drop in temperatures, but still, I know the heat is coming and I need to be prepared.
This past week, I did a lot cleaning up from having company the weekend before. There were extra towels to wash, 3 sets of bedding to remove from beds (still need to wash those), fridge to rearrange (they always store their cold things in our fridge), and making sure all their items are out of my house (found 2 things that were left behind).
The one thing different I did this past week was going to Bookman's. It is a used book store where you can trade in your books for credit or cash. I had quite a few books to trade as well as puzzles. Naturally, they only took about 10 books but I did receive almost $20 credit for them. Since Josie's house at school (yes, it is kind of like Hogwart's in a parochial setting.) was having a book drive, I decided to use my credits to get some books for her drive. The trick was, they were to be for 0-5 yr olds. I was able to get 7 books for her to take to her school. It was so much fun looking at all those picture books again. BTW, Josie's house is St Anne's house. Each house has their own special t-shirts and colors associated with them too. See? Kind of like Harry Potter.
The other thing out of the ordinary I did this week was go clothes shopping. UGH! I hate to shop for clothing. The idea was to find some blouses and pants/skirts for church. I scored on the blouses but struck out on the bottom part. All the pants I found were just too heavy for our summers and there were absolutely zero skirts in my size! I even tried on dresses and found nothing that made me happy. I spent two days doing this shopping. I do have 2 pairs of pants I wear to church. One is a winter pant and I will melt in it this summer. The other I have worn for the past 3 years and it is starting to show the wear and tear. I found another pair of pants just like the ones I use now for summer. Went to try them on (in the same size I have now) and could not even get them past my knees! Seriously? I went up 2 sizes and still could not get them on. Needless to say, I was so angry, I just left the store. I weigh less now than I did 3 years ago too! I guess I could make some pants or a skirt. This may be my best option yet.
Well, that is enough about me. How about you? What is on your needles/hooks? How is your weather?
Until Next Time..................................Happy Crafting & Pray for Peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!
