Coming Up Short

Well, I didn’t complete my sock that I said I wanted to do last week.  I did complete the heel and I’m on the foot part now.  I am really pleased with how the colors look on the bottom of the sock.  Since there is a texture on the top part of the sock, it muddled some of the colors.  I just love these colors!  Hopefully this week I’ll get a little more time to work on it.  This week there was a lot of errands to run.  On Monday, I met with some of the ladies I knit with for some coffee and Joan was so generous she gave me a gauge ruler by Ann Budd Knits.  I hate making swatches so this is awesome!  Also, my aunt has been helping me go through each room and organize it.  She’s so awesome at it.  We go through every corner of the room and take everything out, clean the room, and decide what goes back and where.  I’m so tired of stuff because that stuff takes away time from other things that I want to do (like knitting) and family time.  I’m really striving to make this year about simplicity.




I had to put in a picture of my son since he’s taller than me now.  I’m feeling old.  In two weeks we go talk to his counselor about high school classes.


And since I took a picture with my son, my daughter wanted in on the action.  She’s my mini me!


The chickens have started laying more eggs since there’s more daylight.  I love all the shades.  Sorry for the blurry closeup, but I love the speckles.
