Nothing much going on around this neck of the woods.
Ryan had to work on Saturday and by the time he got home in the early afternoon I was down and out with a full blown cold… As a result our weekend was pretty much a bust (read we didn’t get anything done) and that’s starting to get a bit stressful.
I leave for Phoenix for my baby shower (and some family visiting time!) in just a few weeks and there is A LOT that needs to get done before I leave. I’ll be taking back a car load of stuff because while I’m at home we’ll be doing a garage sale. Ryan and I have spent the last few weeks going through the house trying to cull down our stuff. We need to streamline our lifestyle a bit since the rest of our lives will likely be spent moving all over the world and we just can’t afford to haul around boxes that never get opened! But… with the yard sale happening while I’m in Phoenix we only have a few weeks to finish so that I can take those things back and make a little cash for baby things! So… time crunch!
When I come back to Texas my mom will be coming with me as I said before to help get the nursery ready for Isaac… That means that there are things that need to be DONE before she gets here so we can really focus on doing what she is coming here to do and because Ryan has been so busy with work lately that means that it has to be done before I leave!!! Good thing that spring is in the air around here and I’m all full of energy these days! I need that spring cleaning boost to help me get through this mess!
But… for today I’m sitting on my tush working on blankets because head colds do not lend to working and sorting… I had to put the blue and silver blanket on the back burner… I used the very last of my Sterling yarn and so far nothing has come to light for me to buy… SO I will save it for last just in case something comes up and if not… I’ll unravel the whole thing and find a replacement silver and start over… It’s not like I’ve never started over before!
My current project is this little beauty in red, chocolate brown and tan…
Here is a close up of the stitch…
I’m loving how it’s turning out!
I guess that’s about it for me today! I’m off to enjoy the very last leftovers of my newest creations… (Curried Cream of Cauliflower Soup and Couscous salad with tomatoes, summer squash, and fresh basil with a balsamic vinegarette dressing! YUMMO!)
