YAY it’s Friday … and a 5th Friday feels special. There are four of them this year (the next one is in September) so they’re not rare, but still, why not celebrate!
Thinking about … what to knit next (see below) – I’ve cleared my needles except for Umaro (which I haven’t touched since … May?) and need a project. All this week’s knitting time went into finishing, so I’ve barely started to think about what’s next. Yesterday, I finished a dishcloth and started a new one … I’m sure I’ll come up with a better answer … soon!
Grateful for … time with the boys this week. Yesterday started out much the same as Tuesday – Marc took the boys to the driving range (while I volunteered with the seniors) – but ended with one-on-one time. Sam had a tummy ache and played games with Marc; Charlie and I went to the pool.
We also played HORSE (there’s a basketball net at the other end of the pool and Charlie brought a volleyball) and timed each other holding our breath. One-on-one time is so much fun!
Inspired by … the Booker Long List to shuffle my library holds and place a small order with Blackwells (BW)
Two of those library books are available for pickup tomorrow … and my Blackwells order(s? – it’s three separate packages!) have shipped. August reading plans are shaping up nicely. Note that I don’t have plans yet to read Treacle Walker or Nightcrawling. Yet … the short list is announced September 6 and we’ll see. I’m pleased to see three books I’ve already read – and loved! – on the list. and The Colony, which I read this month, is my favorite so far.
Finished!! … THREE knitting projects (links to Ravelry)!!
It does feel really good to have my needles cleared … and to have all the possibilities for what could be next floating around in my head.
I’m headed to Santa Fe dark early Monday and will be back dark late on Thursday. I’m not sure when I’ll be back here, but I do hope to share at least a few photos on Instagram while I’m away. Until next time, wishing you the best weekend – and the best last few days of July! – possible … and an easy start for August. xxoo.
