There is tons going on here lately but I am going to keep it short. There is just way too much on my mind these days but I did want to pop in. Mr. 26 had to get a new car last weekend. His old Nissan Exterra final gave up its last breath. So here he is, very excited I might add, with his new wheels. Little Buddy was so excited about the new car, but even more excited that his biggest brother had to rent a car for a few days and it was a van!!!!! For some reason those photos did not upload so you will just have to imagine his glee.
I have started anew project without finishing my crochet top. That can wait because I had the urge to make blankets for the big boys and their girlfriends for their new apartments. I am thinking a Christmas present although there is no way I will get two completed by then. This is the Equinox Square by Rachele Carmona. I made a few modifications to make it much larger. Each square I am making is 14 inches across. I drew up a chart because I have the attention span of a flea and can't keep up with written directions right now. The last row is supposed to be a square shape, so much for my drawing skills. Still it is easier for me to glance at and know where I am. The whole blanket will be in this soft light grey color. The yarn is We Are Knitter's The Cotton Yarn, they are having a 30% off birthday sale right now if you are interested.
Little Buddy and I have been doing a ton of school work this weekend. He is not thriving in third grade. Actually he is having a very, very hard time. I have a meeting with his teachers and therapists on Friday to see where we are at and what we need to do to make this a successful experience for both him and them. The answer might be to homeschool him. I am looking at all options. The last thing I want him to do is feel bad about learning, or bad about the way he needs to learn. So much to think about that is keeping my mind very busy. So that is why I am vacant from this space and visiting all of you. Besides work and just taking care of this house I am a bit overwhelmed with this new task.
And just because I think everyone needs to see these two here they are.
I am thinking of all of you affected by fires, hurricanes, Coronavirus, or our pathetic leader. I am sending you all love that we make it though these dark times. As for the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there are no words to describe this loss to all of us. Rest in power, rest in peace. Thank you for all you have done throughout your career to fight for all of our rights. We are a better nation and a better people because of your service.
Stay safe my friends.
