Well, I am surfing today, not knitting yet, got a crazy weekend ahead of me, and then another couple weeks of holding down the fort at work while my boss is gone. Always a bit stressful. Then a week-long board review class, a week of cramming, and to start out the Labor Day holiday, a 6-1/2 hour long board exam. August is not going to be much fun, I think....(except Knitter's Midwest is coming in a week!!!! Woo hoo!)
Check this out: every day Annie's Attic posts a free crochet pattern from one of their published resources. Each pattern is only available for one day. I click there daily--yesterday's was a very cute granny square afghan called 'Garden Kitty'.
Here is a really nice blog called Beautiful Things I just discovered--daily feast for the eyes and much knitting inspiration! I will be checking in there frequently! ;o) I like her style.
I like Applehead too, she has fun items and ideas for the crafty, including lots of knitting and links....
And Feral Knitter got to go to Meg Swanson's Knit Camp! She blogs about it. Soooo, soooo jealous, considering it's only a 2-3 hour drive from me, but I can't go this year. However, I must do so before we move away!
Last weekend's trip to the Grandfather's was nice, although the time management sort of fell through. We got up late, left late, arrived late, slept late, etc. (Which makes for a nice relaxing vaca, except that the Grandfather had other plans and was miffed at us for running late. Sigh. Does he not remember working full time?!)
He lives on a lake in Michigan, a beautiful wonderful cottage that has been in our family for about 87 years! All pricey homes surrounding it now, but it's the same lovely place full of great childhood memories and love. I miss Nana....
This is where I sat and knitted, while watching the sailboat races, and wildlife, enjoying the warm Michigan summer sun. Ahhhhhhhhhh.
