I act like there is just so much going on, but really, for a stay at home wife and mom, I have very little to do anymore. Dinner, grocery shopping, light housework*, dog minding (which is a full time job most days), and various odds and ends, don’t take all of my waking hours, so I have a lot of down time. I have thought about volunteering at the hospital if they would let me rock babies. That would be awesome!
I do knit, puzzle, surf the web, and read online stuff. But to reduce my online time I have stopped checking FB every day. It’s to the point there is so much fluff being posted, memes and videos, and so little of the daily stuff my friends are doing. I didn’t friend you on FB to see all these shares, I want to know about your life. But then when I find myself forwarding on those things I realized, it’s not worth it. I need to reclaim my life! So, I picked up the needles. I finished a shawl for my Mom for Mother’s Day, photos on Friday, and then cast on the next item.
3rd baby sweater from pattern P057, yes, that’s the name. OK, it’s also called Baby Angel Top, but P057 is what shows up in my Box app, LOL. This is using the remaining skeins of the Ella Rae Cozy Soft yarn. I should have more than enough for the large size and have leftovers to make a hat. I am thinking to use the edging design as the border and knit it sideways using wedges to create the hat shape. Will need to look at patterns using the sideways knitting to determine how to incorporate the features into a finished product.
Now, off you go to see what else is happening out there in the blog world.
PS. Prayers, if you are so inclined, would be appreciated. Hubster has a decision to make that is weighing heavily on his mind. It will affect our livelihood a bit, so it’s important. And for College Girl who is 1 week into her Spain trip. She is blistered, achey, and having the time of her life! So happy for this experience for her.
*allergies to chemicals and dust mean I am limited on cleaners I can use and running the vacuum is just not happening. We even have one of the supposedly hypo vacs. Yeah, there really is no hypo vac. The exhaust usually just blows it all right back into the air.
