Happy 4th of July

While I am waiting on my Parents and Aunt Jo, I thought I would take a moment and blog for a bit.

I just wanted to shoot out a happy Independance Day to everyone! We are having a fun day, ending, of course, with fireworks later tonight. We went and saw Speed Racer with the kids this morning, they loved it and surprisingly, Larry and I were entertained. Not exactly what we expected, it was goofy, but still a fun movie.

The market bag is almost done, it would have been done sooner, but, it is quite the boring knit! I am getting to the point where I need to have some excitement in my knitting. Read "excitement" as cables, lace, color, etc. But, I will get it done this weekend! I have to -- It has to go out on Friday!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I will talk to you all later!

Secret Pal 12 Questions of the week!

Since I have not been posting, I am behind on the Questions of the Week!

So here is week 3:
What would you consider the perfect amount of stash?
I feel that as long as I can keep my stash to the 4 huge rubbermaid containers I am doing good -- If I start to overflow from those containers I definitely feel like I have too much!

And week 4:

1) What yarn (that you don’t have/haven’t used) would make your stash “complete”?
I would loooooooove some Malabrigo, any kind, no one close to me carries this line and I hate buying yarn online I have never felt -- I am a very tactile person.
2) What yarn do you never want to be without?
I think, cotton, I can always use cotton, dishcloths, towels, tank tops, light weight jackets, market bags, scarves, summer time wrist warmers, the list goes on!


Now I feel better! I am all caught up -- now off to pay a little attention to my secret pal:)

I have been bad

my posting has gotten horrible -- knitting is not happening, only a market bag I have to get done is moving along, and a super slow pace at that.

Larry is done working, yeah! now we can move on with the plans for the childcare business and grow that!

The kids are having a fun summer so far, Karate, Ballet, Storytimes and playing in the pool! Nothing much better to them!

My Aunt is coming to visit this weekend, and we have a party to go to on Friday! Next weekend we get to go camping, my Mom's side of the family is having a reunion (a fun one!). they do every year, I look forward to seeing all my aunts and uncles!

Well, that is all, I think! Just busy with the addon, childcare and the kiddos!
