Goals met this week

I had two goals knitting wise this week. Complete the first of the grey socks and finish on square on blue wesley.  I did both along with adding additional length to a black scarf for my friend maxi!

Rainy week

This week is suppose to be rainy, which I love except for the roof leaking at work.  Once again the roofers had to be called last night as everyone was leaking due to the afternoon storm. I really wonder if the contractor will use these roofers again.  I came home last night to a wonderful meal made by Preston. Then was able to do a little knitting on my shawl. I really like this pattern Tre O Molti so much. This is the second one I am knitting this time with Shi Bui sock yarn which is making me very happy. The designer has another pattern coming out in a few days.  I can't wait.

Weekend recap

As my summer break ended this weekend, I knitted on my many different projects, two of which aren't shown. I drank coffee, napped, and just ate good food. We were on sound/visual this weekend at church which is a great way to get back into the work environment for me. My boss had the weekend off from praise band and was actually out of town.  I am hoping to finish sock one of the gray pair of socks this week along with the first square of the blanket.

Friday that feels like a Monday

When a Friday is starting to feel like a Monday it is time to go back to bed. I had a great walk this morning, then I made myself some bulletproof coffee, took a picture, posted it to instagram and then spilled the coffee all over the deck. Then I had another issue a moment ago, so after a normal cup of coffee and a muffin that is where I am head for a early nap and maybe read. After all it is the last 'work' day of my vacation as the weekend is full of normal weekend stuff.

It was a great cup of coffee, what little I had of it!

A few days in the woods

As it happens each year in July, it is summer break for my work. This time is a little different. No grand road trips, but a little fun none the less. After running errands on Monday, hubby and I set off for the woods not too far from home. We tried a different campground. It was almost totally empty.

Then after a weird experience, we decided to leave that campground and go up the road a little further. I am so glad we did. We found a tiny campground with four sites, tents only right by the river.  So we set up camp and kicked back for two nights. I got a bunch of knitting done and hubby got some major reading in. It was awesome. Now we are home again and ready for the next part of our vacation
