Just to set the record straight from the start, I am 51 years old so there is no laboring of the baby sort this weekend, but there is lots of other laboring here at my house. I just might be happy when the weekend is done and I can get back to real work!
While I would love to be starting this baby blanket. I am pressure washing instead. I am not sure the exact pattern I am using on this yet, I am still scouting for the perfect ripple pattern.
Meet Pete my Pressure Washer. He is a work horse. We spent all last weekend together on the driveway and front walk, and now we are on our third day together working on my pavers near the pool. This has been a brutal summer here for mold, in fact I am now mold obsessed, I see it everywhere.
While I would love to be working on this tunic top, Simplicity 1080. I am fixing a hole in the knees of my favorite jeans. I wear jeans to work all the time and since I am on my knees a lot on the floor you can only imagine how many pairs of them I ruin. When Claudia was visiting we were on the hunt for this pattern. She wanted to make the tunic, we only found one at a Joann's that is not that close to me. My own Joann's didn't have even one. I found this pattern way down in St. Petersburg on my way home from work one day. I am glad I had a coupon with me, this baby cost $17 at the regular price! I think the tunic would be very fun to wear.
I know my fix is not that lovely but it will do.
While I should be working on a progress note for a little one I work with, the pressure washing has been a priority. Once you start it is hard to stop because you just want to get it done. And of course it leads to cleaning the outdoor furniture, and the windows,and so on........ it never seems to end.
This sweet boy of mine did not nap for two days. He was so tired last night his eyes were all droopy at dinner. This morning I opened the blinds in his room, and even started talking away to him, yet he was still far away dreaming. He is the cutest!
Hope you are finding some time to relax this weekend. I am going to do that tomorrow!
