Monsoons 2022 Have Begun
This is what it looked like in my area last might about 8pm. We got our first major dust storm of the 2022 monsoon season. While I do not embrace the summers here, because of the excessive heat, I do enjoy an active monsoon (providing no one is injured during it). Last year we got a lot of rain during the monsoon season. The prediction is, we will get a lot of moisture again during this years monsoon. Fingers crossed as we just went into phase 1 of water conservation because of our drought.
I have been busy this week with setting up my blog in preparations for the end of this years YOP. There has been designing of graphics for the coming year and designing of a new page listing my wish lists for next years projects. I was hoping to switch over to Wordpress this year but, I just do not understand it well enough to flip. So, I will muddle along with Blogger for another year. I have been using this platform for 15 years and while it doesn't always do what I want, it has served me well for what I normally need it for.
There has also been time spent looking for patterns I would like to make in the coming year. Mostly, I am looking for adorable gnome patterns. I was hoping to find a pattern book with different gnomes in it. So far, I have only seen one pattern book dedicated solely to gnomes. If any of you know of any place I can obtain (either paid for or free) multiple gnome patterns, please let me know. Ravelry has a LOT of patterns for gnomes as does Etsy. Yet, I am still holding out hope of being able to get multiple patterns from one place and not need to purchase/download several individual patterns. Does this make sense?
Other than that, it has been a fairly normal week for us. Because of the dust storm last night, we will be dusting the house today. No matter how tight your doors and windows are, that dust still gets in and creates a lovely layer of silt over everything. YUCK!
I am off to do my morning routines.
Until next time...........................................................
