How do weekends become so busy? My husband was away for 48 hours and I thought I had all the time in the world, but time has sure flown by. This weekend was about tying up loose ends. I spent a large amount of time Saturday morning getting my house in order, cleaning floors and bathrooms just to get a handle everything before I start a very, very busy week with two new evaluations to fit into my busy schedule at work. After cleaning, Little Buddy and I went to Joann's, I had to get a new crochet hook. I was a bit startled that I did not have a hook in every size. After finding the hook in need, I had the great idea that Little Buddy needed some bigger blankets. He loves those very soft lightweight flannel blankets for babies. He is much too big for those now, so down the baby aisle we went to find suitable fabric.
After a quick wash and dry I cut these blankets out and finished them by making a very simple serged edge. Now Little Buddy has a blanket that will cover all of him and Mickey Mouse, too! And I had a office/studio space that had to be cleaned again!
I started on my new project which is what I needed that new hook for. Funny thing is the new hook was still the wrong gauge, so now I am using a D hook that I already had.
I used nap time on Friday and Saturday afternoon to finish the project on my loom. Listening to Sycamore Row by John Grisham made the time fly by. I gave this table runner a good soaking and it is now trying to dry outside in our heat and humidity. I am not sure it is making much progress.
Little Buddy and my Teenager spent a while in the pool. Little Buddy was so excited, and Max was barking his head off like a crazy dog. He does not like people to be in the pool and when anyone goes underwater he gets a bit crazy. He is so brave he will only step into the pool on the top step. He does not like to swim.
Little Buddy's aunts came by this morning so I could go for a nice long walk. They played with him while I was gone and when I got back they all went in the pool. He had the best time and I think they did, too. Little Buddy is so pale, we call him Vampire Baby. He looks especially pale when held by his very tan aunts. I think that he will be taking a very long nap this afternoon. They will be leaving soon to return to Wisconsin for the summer, it will be hard on my little guy to not have them around. It will be hard on me too as I depend on them to stay with him when he is ill and I have to work, or to take him to an appointment every now and again.
Max is exhausted, all these lifeguard duties can wear a boy out.
Thank you all for your kind words about the anniversary of my Mother's death. She is not suffering and in a much better place, so in many ways I am extremely thankful she is no longer here, but I miss my Mom, the one I had growing up and into adulthood. I am blessed she was so wonderful.
Hope you have all had a terrific weekend.
