Some of my cherry tomatoes are turning red. This is very exciting. It means that soon I can pick them and eat them. Not bad for a first time gardener, eh??
Today I did some stuff around the house while my cleaning lady was here, and attempted to do some laundry. I still have four hundred more loads to do (okay not really four hundred, but you get the picture)!
Late afternoon I dropped Sean off at my parents house and did a run to the post office. I think the people behind me in line were cursing me, I had a ton of stuff to mail today! I was all organized though, with all my customs labels already all filled out, so it would speed things up. People in line behind me didn't seem to care though that I'd filled everything out beforehand. I think they were annoyed that I had a lot of stuff to mail. But you know, I did stand in line and waited my turn, so.... I'm entitled to mail out as much as I want! I've waited my fair share at the post office before with psycho people before me in line either mailing out a ton of stuff or causing the cashier grief over god knows what!
After the post office since I was in town, I picked up some dinner and headed over to Ariadne to see Angela & Madeleine. Mack had a good time chilling on their couch while I knit. You can see my Misty Garden Scarf behind Mack, I actually got to work on it tonight!
Angela & Mack
Mary's having a baby boy late fall, so she got some practice in with Mack! She did a great job! Though, I feel bad, because Mack spit up while she was holding him. (Totally NOT your fault Mary!)
Michelle was so proud that she picked up stitches for her hat that I had to take a picture. Michelle is my emergency nurse friend who came to visit me while I was in the hospital with Mack since she worked while I was there.
It was also great to see Kadi who just got back from Europe.
I was so glad to get out of the house tonight, and knit. I don't get knitting done while Sean's around. Mack's super easy and lets me knit. I told him that if he lets me knit tonight, I'll knit him something. Hey, it worked! Hee hee... I thank the ladies at Ariadne for not kicking us out and letting us stay late! I wish I could have stayed longer tonight. If you're ever in Montreal visiting, you have to check them out - the owners are lovely and they are the only yarn shop in Montreal that I'd buy stuff from (seeing as though I have my own shop!) Actually tonight, I got a copy of Steppin' Out Too since my best friend knit the test pair that are on the cover!
So, Kelly whose blog is I'm Loving Motherhood blogged the other day about a $250 cookie recipe. A friend of hers was expecting to pay $2.50 but the store (Neiman Marcus) charged her $250! Outraged she decided to share the recipe with everyone she knows and wants us to share it with everyone we know! You can find the recipe here, so feel free to make them and pass it on! I'm curious to taste what 250$ cookies taste like!
A reminder that there is only a few days left to pick up your August Sock Club, which I'm designing the pattern for! Come on and show some support! It's my first pattern ever! If you've already got your August Kit, September's is up for sale as well (Yarn is Lovesticks by Kavatar0). Delicious!
