Hello Everyone! Well, summer is here and the heat is as well! We are supposed to reach 95 today with a heat index of well over 100. Heat and humidity are not the best friends of a good hair day! I told my husband that we should just sit in the shade with the mister going and a LARGE pitcher of iced tea!
It rained quite hard last night, just adding some more moisture so the dew point is really up there! LOL
Hope you are all staying cool as summer is rolling along!
Have a great weekend!
I signed up for a quick fun swap yesterday. It is the Flip Flop Swap
that I found the link for on Lolly’s site http://www.lollygirl.com/blog/
Check it out – sign ups are until Friday the 14th. Join us for some Summer Fun!
Happy Hump Day everyone!
Hello Everyone. Whew, it is only Tuesday? How is it that after a vacation it seems like the days drag by? Well, it feels like it should be at least Thursday!! Re-entry has it’s challenges!
I brought my yarns from my Secret Pal to my LYS – Lizzie Ann’s at lunch today. There were “oooh’s” and “aaahhhh’s” from all. My Secret Pal may not know this – but she made my re-entry week a thousand times better than it could have been by her amazing package. I am going to nominate her for Secret Pal of Secret Pal 8! She is awesome!
Hope this Tuesday was kind to all of you!
Good Morning Everyone! We were going to head back from our cottage last night, but we had some bad storms roll through. A nice line of them in our path home. So we headed out first thing this morning! And, at the door waiting for me when I arrived was a little box from my pal! It was PACKED full of wonderful things. I was so surprised to see such lovely things! I will post photos when my husband brings his camera home from work. Until then, I will give you all a description of the treasures I received!
First off – Thank you Secret Pal! You are the best!!!! I opened the box and began to pull out my gifts – first some awesome note cards with a lovely gal sporting a great green knitted cardigan! Next, a box of tea – and Aveda tea at that! Looks delicious! Next, a bag filled with GORGEOUS stitch markers – made from fresh water pearls! They are so beautiful! Next, (and by now I am thinking, WOW, what a pal!) I opened a red tissue wrapped bundle that held not one, but TWO balls of Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed, colorway Twig. It is so lovely! It feels so WONDERFUL! Next, I opened another red tissue wrapped bundle and inside I found a ball of Kaalund Silk. Oh my gosh, it feels so soft. 450 feet of softness, looks like I am going to be working on some lovely lace! The colorway is Brushfire – reds, purples, golds – wow. It has a great sheen also! Finally, in the last wrapped package, some Zitron incanto yarn – in a blue, green colorway. It is beautiful. A HUGE thank you to my secret pal – she is amazing. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Hope you all have as great a pal as mine is. 🙂
PS to my pal – a written thank you is on it’s way to you. 🙂
Hello everyone – well all good things must come to an end, and so it goes for vacation. Today I take my kiddo’s to Ludington to drop them off to their dad. They are sleeping right now, as teenagers are wont to do! I am making breakfast one last time this morning, bacon cooking will wake them up – don’t you think?
I found something fun at YarnYenta’s sight http://www.yarnyenta.blogspot.com/ – the world’s longest poem. You all need to go and check it out – http://chokaonit.com/ It is a choka poem, older than haiku. It is easy, two lines that do not rhyme. First line is 7 syllables and the second line is 5.
My couplet is this:
Knitting in the quiet dawn
Clicking needles talk
Okay – I am off to make breakfast for the kids! Have a great weekend everyone.
