Buckle Up, Boys and Girls...

this is gonna be a long one!

First up I am once again joining up with Ginny's Yarn Along!
On the hook are some star-shaped washcloths made with Sugar and Creme yarn.  I love the blue/green/white one because it reminds me of the beach.  I still need to soak and block them but I want to do a few more so I can do that all at once.

I'm re-reading Anne of Green Gables for the bazillionth time.  I usually read it about once a summer or so.  Right now seems like the best time to keep with that tradition.  I love the whole series but the first two have been and always will be my favorites.

As you can see, I'm also reading the Food section of the newspaper.  Sometimes they have some really cool ideas in there that I always tell myself I am going to try.  Someday I will.  Probably.


Here are some current garden pictures:

I can't wait until the larger tomatoes are ripe.  The cherry tomatoes I have been eating are so yummy!

I signed up for a yarn swap on Ravelry today.  I'm kind of excited about it, and, being the geeky nerd that I am , I have been checking every hour or so to see if anyone else has signed up.  The best part about this...are you ready for is a FIBER, COFFEE, and CHOCOLATE swap!  Could there be anything better?  I think not.  I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.

I'm meeting a friend for lunch on Friday.  Very excited about that.  I used to see her every day and now only see her sporadically.  I miss her.

I also miss my BFF but that is another long, drawn-out, and sad story that I will not subject you to.

Speaking on my BFF--this picture of my freshly colored hair AND face is just for her.
You're welcome.  Hmph.

For those of you that remembered, I had a meeting at work today.  It went well and I thank you for your thoughts, wishes, and prayers. :)

because I love her.

So...not quite as long as I thought but very picture laden.  You are welcome.

  2. I hope you have a good swap experience. I may sign up for another one soon.

    I just mailed off my Fiber, Coffee & Chocolate swap package to my swappee this morning.

  3. The garden looks great! Amazing what a little water and sunshine can do ;) Believe it or not, when I got home I checked on my tomato plant and I had like 8 tomatoes on it and it was very dry, so I watered it and I think it will be ok. I really enjoyed having lunch with you the other day and look forward to seeing you again soon. I hope to hear more about your Fiber, Coffee & Chocolate swap, that sounds very interesting. Have a good week.

  4. I'm jealous of your green thumb! And you crafty skillz! Cute hair and looks like you are having a lovely summer. :)
