Before I write anything I want to thank you all for your caring and sharing in my last post. You opened your hearts and talked about your own experiences with sexual misconduct and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I also appreciate each and everyone of you who did not want to share. I am not sure I would have before this confirmation hearing to be honest. Let me just say I am sending love to each of you no matter what has happened to you in the past, you are all worthy, you matter, and did not bring any unwarranted attention onto yourself. I thought I would get a quick post in before the vote on Judge Kavanaugh. I just might go into hiding after the vote because I fear my trust in our system and our government is going to reach an all time low, if that is even possible anymore.
Here to make you smile is Hank. He is getting much better in front of the camera and is not looking so panicked when he sees it in front of him. He makes me laugh so much. He gets his bone every time you walk in the room and prances around like a horse. He is very proud of his bones!
And here is Bear. He is so sweet and adorable. He looks so innocent but don't let that fool you, he is a master at getting into everything, and I mean everything! But really his heart is filled with love.
My last Memento Mori Shawl was finished last weekend. I made myself sit down and rest most of the weekend which allotted a lot of time to get this done. Little Buddy and I did things at home, the pool, play doh, reading, a movie, snuggles, you know how it goes. It was wonderful and even more so because the families teams, UCF, Ohio State and the Packers all won. The biggest boys and Dad had a great time in beautiful Wisconsin with the gorgeous weather and the Packer win of course.
The shawl was completed with Malabrigo Rastita, I believe I said Rasta before and that is a thicker yarn. I used less yarn with this shawl somehow but it came out about the same size as the red one. This is for Little Buddy's babysitter for Christmas. She loves skulls, and spooky things so I thought it would be perfect for her. Two presents completed, Yay! I used about 500 yards of yarn for this shawl and a size H hook. For the last few days I have had nothing on my needles or hook, it feels very weird to me. I hope to rectify that tonight.
Happy weekend my friends.
