Charting progress

I have many projects going at once, as usual. I thought I would post a picture of one of my projects and keep a photo log of my progress, then I might be inspired to get it done in a timely manner and then I would feel good about myself. Do you think it will work? Hope so.

Still learning.....

Now I'm learning how to use Photobucket. My daughter seems to know all about this stuff. How did she learn about it? Anyway, I have about 6 or 7 photos. I haven't gotten a picture of myself yet but then I'm not that photogenic so I'm in no hurry. Now I have to figure out how to get my pictures on this blog. Wish me luck

Finishing that Thought

Well, that movie was fun....(not). They were watching The Golden Compass. I didn't find it very good. Also, they wouldn't let me knit during the movie!!!! What torture. I find it very hard to sit still if my hands do not have something to do.

I miss my dad today. He hasn't been gone that long but I still "see" him everywhere. I will see someone from behind and think it is my dad and then remember that it can not be him. Little things remind me and the memories really do hurt right now.

Today is Memorial Day, a day for remembering. But that hurts too much right now, it is too fresh. Someday the remembering will be a good thing, now it is not.

Okay, what's next...

Here it is, a holiday weekend and the weather is awful. So, I did what comes natural, I sewed a new bag for my knitting projects :). My family is yelling at me to come and watch a movie with them so I gotta finish my thoughts later.

Mother's Day

Oh my what a wonderful Mother's Day. My own mum came down from Spokane for a short visit. We had a very nice Friday evening, I showed her my new garden and talked about what to do next. I had to work on Saturday, unfortunately. Sunday, we drove down to Mt. Angel and had dinner at the Glockenspiel restaurant. Then we strolled around the Abbey. After that we had planned to go to the Oregon Gardens but the weather was so iffy so we went to Silver Falls St. park instead. We enjoyed a lovely hike around the area. I hadn't been hiking in so long and I do so enjoy hiking :) My mum couldn't stay any longer than the weekend. She headed up to Olympia Monday morning. She will get to stay longer when we (my husband and I) go to Germany this fall. She will come down and take care of the kids. That will be wonderful for my peace of mind.

Gotta go pick up a kid.....

I think spring is finally making some in-roads into the current weather situation. I feel my spirits beginning to lift. I finished my green socks made from Cascade Fixation. That is a really interesting yarn. It is cotton and spandex and very springy. I have another color way called mushroom and I want to start another pair soon but I have to finish up my entrelac shrug first, maybe. We'll see how long I can hold out.
The PDX Knitbloggers are putting together a walking group for the Hood to Coast. I have ran in that race two years in a row, a long time ago and it was lots of fun. I would like to join but I don't think we will be in town.
