Last night

There was a moth. He flew out of my yarn basket. Someone tell me what to do!!!! (yes, there is plenty of wool in that particular basket, but also a little acrylic and a fair amount of cotton, in case that matters.) I admit to screaming a little bit, and freaking Chris out just a tad. Silly muggle- he doesn’t understand the possible implications! I was digging through the basket looking for a manly yarn..the time has come when I feel the urge to knit him something. Nothing sweater-sized (or time consuming) but I was thinking a hat. Thoughts? On anything?

I could talk to him all night long

Damn. I like this boy so much. Even thought it’s not something I was necessarily looking for, he’s the anti-D. Besides the obvious white/black, civilian/military angles…he’s actually got a conscience and morals. What a refreshing change. On the nights that we don’t get together, we talk. A lot. And I love it. Sigh….can’t wait to see him again tonight 🙂

Can you believe Jack is almost a year old?! I’ve started planning his little party and it just makes me want to cry when I think of how big he is. My sweet lil smidgen is growing up! Gabe and Natalie are both getting SO EXCITED about the school year starting. We’ve still got a little over a week to go, but the backpacks are packed and the first days outfit is picked out. Well, for Natalie anyway…I think Gabe could care less what he wears *lol*. Wait until you see Natalie’s dress, it’s way too adorable for words. We have a “meet the teacher” next Thursday that I’m really looking forward too. I didn’t get to meet Gabe’s kindergarten teacher ahead of time, but thankfully she turned out to be wonderful. 2 kids in school all day. Whatever will I do with just me and Jack?!

That’s all I have for today…gotta finish cleaning out the too small kids clothes and make a run to the thrift store…then get ready for my hot date tonight… :o) :o)

Dear diary,

I met this boy……..


Sorry to be a tease, but I only had half a second to post this morning. So yeah…I gots me a boyfriend 😀 His name is Chris, and he’s fabulous. We met through my best friend Liz (who also visited last weekend, but I have to download my pics before I post about our fun!)… I can’t tell you how good it feels to have someone want to be with me again. It’s been way too long….

Picnic in the Park

We had a really fun day at the park yesterday. Well, morning at the park to be more precise. It’s been a few degrees shy of Hades these past few days, so we decided to turn our lunch-picnic into a breakfast-picnic and hang out in the wee hours. It was a blast! We went with my parents and three of my siblings, and brought so much breakfasty goodness that the table was groaning.

We worked off the calories by engaging in some family sports. Oh, what a time we had 🙂

All in all, a very very nice Sunday. In other news, I’ve been sewing myself a new quilt for my bed. Full of bright, funky colors and totally fabulous. Here is a pic (mostly pre-assembled, with Gabe sitting on top for size comparison. Also, I just noticed you can see a wee bit of Jack in the upper left corner! ), the top is fully sewn together now.

As soon as I can get the batting, I will be sewing this baby together and quilting the top. I’m thinking a combination of fun machine stitches, hand stitches, and some yarn ties. We’ll see.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who were involved with the bridge collapse in Minnesota.
