The weekend was full, there was some happy houring, some football watching, and some yard working.

And, yes, there was some knitting. I have about 4 inches to go on Ponchetta…which I think will pair nicely with the Mountain of Laundry that awaits me!

Happy Monday all!

Monday? Already?

Monday? Already?

The weekend seems like a blur of activity, and looking back I am wondering what the heck I got done! Lots of “stuff” not much accomplished.

One thing is for certain, dark and cold Monday mornings are not the best way to start a week and, this morning seemed extra dark and oh so chilly! It would have been so easy to stay in bed.

But, I somehow have an extra-long list today so, sadly, staying in bed was not an option.

I pondered the preservation of diced tomatoes last week, but Bonny’s kind reminder of the uncertainty of canning tomatoes was enough to dispel that idea. So today, I am giving Vicki’s Roasted Tomato Sauce a whirl. I am looking forward to the smell of those tomatoes roasting away and as an added bonus, the oven will heat the house up a bit!

Oh, and those pickled tomatoes? Divine! The list of things I want to put them on has grown exponentially: avocado toast, chicken salad sandwiches, tuna melts, poached eggs…I mean these little jewels are incredible!

Then, I am sitting down to cut out my first AC shirt. I am going to keep it simple for my first try with an A-Line top (no flowers, this time…) Oh, and bonus points are awarded for figuring out how to print the pattern on a Monday morning! (Pro-tip… select “poster” from printing options!)

That’s all I have for a Monday – hope your weekend was great!

Things to do on Labor Day

Things to do on Labor Day

Already accomplished this morning: move things to Steve’s new office and then a nice walk around the northside.

Lots of coal headed someplace…

Followed by these interesting possibilities:

Free Craftsy Day – all classes, all day, free viewing!

Pickle Tomatoes?

And, there will be knitting, of course!

I hope your day is filled with things you love!


Oh, Monday

Oh, Monday

This week I have a few things that I must finish that have been at the top of my procrastination list for some time. Sadly, there are plenty of things I procrastinate over but these things are especially procrastination worthy and I am not looking forward to them at all.

The weekend was highly productive but unseasonably cool! We got some inside Kon-Mari-ing done. And I have a good-sized pile of clothes to take to the re-sale shop. Today I will continue in Kon-Mari-Mode and clean out some knitting books. Then I will tackle the Procrastination List!

On a brighter note, I am almost done with this sweater! I might even have it done today, if I can wrap my head around the neckband finishing. We shall see how it goes.

I also made some good progress on Kavalier and Clay over the weekend and I should easily have this done soon. I must admit, they are wonderful companions even during the most mundane of tasks!

And with that, I am off to start my Monday! How was your weekend?

Eclipsing Monday

Eclipsing Monday

It was a fly by weekend here but lots got done. Unfortunately, the sweater was not one of the things on the “done” list! I am through the sleeve divide however, and the knitting is going a bit quicker now. With some quality knitting time, this should not be on my needles too much longer!

However, today my list has little room for knitting.

My list today includes the plethora of tomatoes that have taken over the house, some raspberry jam as well. As is Pilates and a walk and mixed in with those things are a few other more “mundane” tasks as well.

Oh, and I also have some eclipse viewing to do as well!

Hope your Monday is full of good things!
