You know it's Summer when...

You know it's summer when:
1. You smell grills every evening when you go for your neighborhood walk.
2. Your neighbors have you over to swim in their pools at all hours.
3. The house looks like a tornado hit inside, due to the kids being out of school.
4. You can play connect the dots with mosquito bites.
5. When stopping to smell the roses, you get stung by a bee.

I tried to figure out what type of blogger I wanted to be. Did I want to blog every day, every other day or weekly...I think due to my lack of focus and concentration (ohh shiny object) I will try to be a weekly blogger. I think that will work for me.

This week I finished a shawl for my Loopy Ewe Camp-along this summer. This was the first project. It was to be something to keep us warm on those cool camp evening around the campfire. I must tell you that even my DH thought this was nice...hummm maybe he's coming around!

Well, that's about it for today. I have several projects on needles as we speak:
1. Baby blanket for my granddaughter.
2. Baby blanket for one of the Dr's I work with.
3. Socks
4, Ribbed scarf
5. Extra baby blanket, just in case someone has an unexpected" baby. :)

I am excited, next week is July 4th and I get a 4 day weekend...Whooo Hoooo!!! So here's hoping all is well in your world. Take some time this week and see what summer means to just never know when you will need some summer time.

Until next time

Six months later....

Hello all,

I begin this as I always do, saying that I am sorry for not keeping this totally updated at all times. I used to be a dedicated blogger but alas, this too has changed. I have decided that somehow I didn't always have time for this. Truth be told, it only takes about 10 minutes out of my busy schedule, so you would think that i could get this in....that's what you get for thinking... :)

Well, my granddaughter is now 6 months old....she is the love of my life and I can't help but spoil her rotten...much to the dismay of her parents. As you can see, she is trying to enjoy her first clementine...

Two more children have graduated from high school...I am left with our youngest...she turned 16 in Feb and is going on 18. She will be a Jr. this year. The two that graduated will be going on to school in the fall: She will be going to Mary Washington College and He will be going to Old Dominion University. Whoooo hooooo I am one proud mamma!! :)

One of the major downfalls of living with the miltary, is that from time to time, friends much move away and it is never easy, no matter how often you go through it. One of our closest friends are leaving tomorrow for Maine. They are both from there and are definitely looking forward to going home. I know that they are going to be happy, but it is still hard to say so long. :(.

That's about all for now. Things keep moving along whether or not we are ready for it. We can either jump on and go for the ride or we can fight it. I for one, am going to do my best to keep my balance and go along for the ride.

Until next time....
