Yarn P0rn Friday brings you this lovely skein of Natural Cascade Magnum. I want to make a cowl with it – I love how chunky& soft it is. I’ve been digging chunky yarns too lately. This skein was picked up at Chilliwack Wool & Craft in British Columbia as part of my birthday presents from Vancouver this year. I used the birthday money that I received from several people to get the yarn. This yarn will definitely keep me busy for a while, until my yarn diet of 2010 is over. Kind of makes me glad my birthday is in the middle of the year.
Today after daycare we hung out in the backyard. I decided to bring out the potty, just in case, so while I was planting, I wouldn’t have to break to run into to take Sean to the bathroom. Let me tell you, that I am so proud of Sean. I caught this photo just before he made you know what, for the first time in the potty. We are so extremely proud of him. And let’s hope that we can continue to get him to do his business on the potty as well as just peeing. Apparently “number 2” is the harder than getting them to just pee in the toilet. Sorry if this is too much information for you. It’s my blog, and I’m damn proud of Sean! (And one day, he’ll probably kill me for taking this photo!)
We hired a new gardener to mow the low. Ha, just kidding. It’s a fisher price toy.
Oh, and finally a garden update! (With many more to come over the summer)
Finally placed my “welcome to my garden” stone in the garden near the tomatoes.
Sean wants to show you that the Zucchini plants are growing nicely.
We have some beans sprouting. (Stringless beans)
I planted celery today. I’ve never planted celery before, we’ll see how it goes this year.
We have some cherry tomatoes starting on the plant already.
As well, some larger tomatoes.
(I believe they’re Fantastic Tomatoes, but I’ll have to double check).
And the Romaine lettuce is doing extremely well.
We’ll be eating fresh Caesar salad before we know it.
(Our Pomme Head lettuce is doing well too,
only a matter of time before we have fresh salad to eat).
Got one more free Huggies Point for you: BJCPN-JNFMS-SPPGB which is worth 1pt.
Today’s Link Love:
- Love this baby mobile tutorial.
- This inspired me to re-organize in my office, more to come on that in an upcoming post.
- This magazine seems really cool. I wonder if it’s sold in stores here. I’ll check out Chapters on my next run.
- Loving I Am Woman from Sex & The City 2 Soundtrack. It’s actually performed (sung) by the 4 girls.
- Also loving this version of Empire State of Mind, also on the SATC2 Soundtrack. (I got my CD in the mail (thank you Chapters!) and cannot stop listening to it!
Today’s Link Hate:
- Did you hear? Jamie Salé & David Pelletier, the famous skating duo are divorcing? So sad.
I started a new knit project tonight so that I have something to seam on my last Finishing Class with Mona Schmidt on June 16th. I will show you progress tomorrow & tell you all about it then.
ps- Just a reminder that I'm throwing a contest for this entire month! Details are here.
