Actually, Bruce left on the Great Golf Outing on Wednesday night so yesterday was my first full day. That leaves me solo for a few days. I felt a little worried about this because I'm really not a morning person at all - I'm also not a cleaning the house, doing the dishes or taking out the garbage person. You get the idea - right? Anyway, I wasn't sure how this all would work out but so far so good. For those interested in keeping score I can sum up the first full day like this:
- Bloody noses - 2
- Cordless phones in the bathtub - 1
- Children delivered to school on time with all their crap - 2
- Children picked up from school on time - 2
- Children declining to eat the nutritious dinner I served - 1
- New knitting projects begun -1
I had been pondering this yarn before I got the flyer from the school. It's left over (yup, you heard that right) from a blanket and sweater set that I made for my neice 2 years ago. I don't know if I just totally miscalculated and overbought or if the yardage was off or what. I really just don't recall and, as I 've stated before, my math sucks so anything is possible. The bottom line is that I have 6+ skanks of this cotton yarn and I think that it would make a nice summer top for the Drama Queen. I sat with all of my assorted books and magazines on wednesday night and I came up with.... nada! I just don't know what I want to do. Figuring this ought will be project #2 for this weekend.
I have one other thing to offer today. I saw this flower as I was getting into my car this morning. As usual I have no clue what it is but I love it. I actually recall planting it at some point but still I can't remember the name. It's so delicate and the color is lovely. I hope it brightens your day like it did mine.
