The Storm!! Yes, there is a storm brewing around here and I have just a few days left before life as I know it changes for 3 months. The storm, of course, is tax season. To add to the craziness of tax season and the long hours that it entails... I took on co-director of the children's Wednesday night program (AWANA) that we are starting at our church in 2 weeks. So, for awhile, my knitting and blogging will be limited, at best. I will get on when I can and hope to sneak some knitting in here and there over lunch breaks. (Oh, wait, I don't get lunch breaks, hmmmmm...) I will figure out something.
Oh, and tomorrow I have to report for Jury Duty. I have heard that it is against the law to bring knitting needles into the courthouse, which really bums me out. Kirstin and I are thinking of ways I could smuggle some in, but I am not sure I want to risk going to jail. I'll just have to bring some exciting reading material with me... like all of the new tax law changes!! (Maybe they will see me reading them AND enjoying it, and think I'm unfit to be a juror.......)
Anyways, precious little knitting to report. I finished another bowl over the weekend. I think this is my favorite one so far. Made with WOTA Bulky varigated. The blues go perfect in the family room; so I think I'll keep it :-)
Also finished a Sebastian Coin purse. I have very little left of spun Sebastian wool... maybe enough for one more of these. I keep my Ipod in the one I have. Works great and is great protection for it when I am carrying it around.
Spent Saturday in Galena with Ryan and Mallory and had a very fun day. We ate lunch at Fried Green Tomatoes... which Galena is famous for. We then walked around all of the shops and headed back to the condo, where we let Ryan beat us at a game of Phase 10!!
Kirstin and Aaron stayed home for the day. Kirstin was up early and volunteered at Habitat for Humanity (which she often does on Saturdays). She sanded mud spots on the ceiling for 3+ hours! Aaron finished packing up and getting ready to head back to ISU. Thought I would include this picture, as I have learned, from a somewhat reliable source, that there is a little point system going on for the number of pictures one gets on my blog. Sigh. It's a mother's never ending job to keep all things equal. Never thought it would make it's way to my blog!!!
Well, here you see Sumo in his dog house in the garage. But, in reality, he is not the one in the dog house. I am. Yes, me. I took him to the vet last week to have her look at a growth on his gum. (He HATES to go to the vet...) Anyways, they ended up keeping him for the day and removing the growth and 2 teeth!! Needless to say, he was not very happy with me. (I mean, he didn 't get to eat that whole day!!!) Of course, he has already forgiven and forgotten everything and is back to his lovable self, without a bit of a grudge. We can learn alot from our dogs!!
Until next time...
