As I type this, the average guess out of 10 guesses is 30! Not that I have anything against 30 year olds or people in their 30s, but it sucks when I've still got a few years to go before 30 is even a thought! Gah! What makes me look so much older? Daggum whipper snappers!

Is anyone else getting tired of the Pink Pearl Wedding Gown in the 2007 Crochet Pattern-a-Day calendar? Anyone?

Summertime and the livin's easy

Summer is here, and my desire to crochet is gone. Damn it. My Seafoam Vest is still in the WIP pile I'm ashamed to say. I would like to have it finished but I just can't manage the gusto. I took it along with me while I was out on the road with Nathaniel, but it never saw the light of day. The weather is beautiful and I just want to be outside getting my hands dirty and we all know that dirt and yarn don't mix! It'll get done eventually when it's too hot to be outside. For now we're all having fun outdoors . I guess the point of this post is to let any readers out there know that I'm still here but that there won't be much new content on this blog the next few weeks. I will be keeping up with my blog reading folks out there help feed my creative side and keep me up-to-date with the latest goings on in the fiber world. Have fun, enjoy the season, and remember...don't forget the sunscreen!

Hello & Goodbye

Chicago was fantastic and so was the yarn store. I didn't buy anything because I had the boys (husband & son) in tow and neither really wanted to be there. That's fine, I couldn't decide what to buy anyway. But if you're ever in the area do check it out, it was a really great store.

Right now my baby is 466.9 miles away from me. Leaving was going way too well, and as soon as Nathaniel and I got out to the car, poised to open our doors Geof's face began to scrunch up and turn red. At that point is when the water works began. I ran back to console him and assure him that we would be back and then we left. I held it together until we were in the car and around the corner. I could have cried a lot more but I know that he's in great care and is going to have one hell of a summer with his grandparents. I called him last night and again things were going well for a bit until his voice began to crack. I assured him again and told him to snuggle with his grandma because she was not only a mommy but a grandma too and she could give all kinds of good hugs. That worked for like 2 seconds. Then he asked that I come in to give him a hug and kiss when I got in that night. I had to tell him that it was going to be a few weeks before we would be up there again. I finally got my mother-in-law back on the phone an told her that I would hang up and quit stirring up the fire.

Today my guts are in knots and I'm wondering if I've done the right thing....all the while knowing that I did, but still I am a concerned mother here! I'm sure he'll settle into the new surroundings in a few days, I guess I just hate the fact that I can't be there to help him adjust. Grrrr.

Nathaniel and I are leaving out tonight to travel the country in his big rig. I'm pretty excited about it. He's requested a load out west towards Washington and Oregon. As of a few days ago things weren't very promising so our next choice was Maine followed by the Dakotas. So, there's no telling where we'll be the next couple of weeks but I'm sure I'll be telling all about it!

Hope everyone has a great summer. Take care!! glad to hear you're feeling better, I thought about you a lot while we were away....especially when I was in the yarn store! Take care and I can't wait to catching up with the goings on in your world once I return!
