Mack is two months old today. I cannot wait for him to have his 2 month check-up on Thursday, Aug 21st, I'm dying to know how much he weighs.
This morning Jamie went to pick up (with the help of my brother & a co-worker of theirs) my dad's antique dresser that was sitting (unused and unwanted) at my brother's house. We needed it so we could finally use the TV we got (but needed a stand/dresser/wall unit for it). I also needed/wanted drawer space, so it worked out perfectly, and fits perfectly in our bedroom. I don't know how old this dresser is, but I know that it's been around in my family as long as I can remember.
So one drawer got filled with t-shirts/tank tops, shirts of any kind. I've been using the unused playpen as a dumping ground and didn't want to anymore. This is why the dresser was a good piece for that place in my bedroom.
And one drawer is still currently empty. Though, I think I want to put some sweaters in there.
And the top two levels of drawers.... they're filled with yarn. My precious stash. My personal stash. Mmmmm, delicious! My husband thinks I'm insane for loading it up with yarn.... but yarn is taking over my house. Hopefully one day I'll get to knit it all up!
My parents brought us back a cute hand drawn picture for us from their recent trip to Boston, MA. I deleted our last name and wrote in "Knit & Purl Mama" family for blogging purposes. Isn't it cute. It's already hanging on our wall next to the "marriage" one my parents got us a few years back on their last trip to Boston.
And this is the gift basket I made for my sister, the recipient of my Sweetie Tomatoes from my garden. I hope she likes it!
Tonight we had dinner at Montana's with my family. Sean doesn't last long at restaurants anymore (he doesn't like being confined to a seat anymore). It's not so fun taking him out to restaurants anymore. I'm hoping this is a passing phase. It also didn't help that the sippy cup that I filled with apple juice and handed to him while I was packing up Mackenzie was left behind at home. Jamie didn't notice that he wasn't holding it anymore when he put him in the car. Sean threw a fit at the restaurant as he wanted something to drink, and we didn't have his cup. They did have a children's cup with a lid & straw there, but it just wasn't the same. He. wanted. his. sippy. cup. Ugh.
I finished knitting the 57th square for the blankie project. I think it's square 57. I'll look into that tomorrow when I photograph it. I hope to get some more squares done.
Have you seen this request? A sweater for 20$? Is this woman insane? That won't even cover yarn.... or even postage! What the heck is she thinking??? The sad thing is... someone bid on it, and the request is in progress. Oh, I feel bad for this person who will knit this!
