I didn’t think it could happen, considering everything that is going on with work, but I started, finished and mailed the matching hat for the Peapod Sack. It’s so cute with its little leaf hanging down the side. I can’t wait to see our new little pea in it!!
I also finished one Skinny Mitten and started another pair of fingerless mitts, so knitting is officially going forward. If things keep going like this I might be tempted to drag out Classic Cardi and actually take a stab at finishing it—but I don’t want to go overboard!
Sunday night the family gathered for a “happy birthday DIL and we’ll miss you SIL’s mom” dinner at a local Mexican restaurant. Need I say that the margaritas flowed freely? I had not had flautas de pollo since starting Weight Watchers last year so I indulged and enjoyed!! SIL’s mom wore the sparkly mitts (it was a chilly night) and it made me happy to know my knitting is appreciated. She heads back to chilly Canada tomorrow.
For some time I have been wondering which dog is eating my basil plants in the window box. I thought it was Macy because that corner of the breakfast nook bench is her favorite place to stand and watch squirrels. But this morning I actually caught Mr. Max pulling up a newly planted basil plant from the corner-of-the-bench vantage point. He put it down fast before I had a chance to get a picture of him with the loot in his mouth. I guess I shouldn’t have rewarded him with hamburger and rice for lunch. Right?
Life is good!!
