Day 33 / 40 Grateful Days

Day 33 / 40 Grateful Days 

Last week of summer vacation... need to start getting up earlier, which is OK for me but will be slow going for the boys. They don't sleep super late as it is, but still. We usually do a couple school drills during this last week but I wasn't ready this morning. They were lagging behind me on the dog walk. Lovely cooler temperature & breeze this morning though!  Over the weekend I started on another crochet garment, from a pattern book (out from library) that has several cute things in it I want to make.

Day 28 & 29 / 40 Grateful Days


Day 28 & 29 / 40 Grateful Days 

Stopped by Sheetz on the way home from swimming yesterday and was happy to see a F'real Strawberry Banana smoothie only had 270 calories, yum. Have been walking both the dogs & boys these past mornings. Looking forward to eating pizza tonight. 10 more days until school...

Day 27 / 40 Grateful Days

Day 27 / 40 Grateful Days 

Lost track for a bit there over the weekend. Hate this time of year. Is there such a thing as Grinch of Late Summer? That is me.  Been basically more of the same since last post blah blah blah who cares. Grateful for trips to the Y (have never swam/swum/swimmed? this much ever!) also trips to the library to get new piles of books to leaf through. Grateful for air conditioning and ceiling fans.

Day 22 / 40 Grateful Days

Day 22 / 40 Grateful Days 

Finished up yesterday and today. Added curlicue ties so it can wrap closed or cinch in front... which looks like my guts are falling out. :) Entrails are totally trendy right now, duh.

Day 21 / 40 Grateful Days


Day 21 / 40 Grateful Days 

Tuesday was a "put on a comforting black t-shirt" day, and a '93 Manilow tour shirt fit the bill nicely. The Tai Chi teacher at the Y asked if I went to it, I said it was highly likely. After class I went to buy more yarn for next sleeve and found out no one local carries the "Bright Pink" I was using anymore so bought "Hot Pink" instead. There is definite shade difference. Was pissed for a while, but after debating buying 4 balls of "Bright" off eBay for inflated price, I decided to just roll with it and rework first sleeve so both will be in "Hot" color. Am in "OMG almost done!" mode so right now IDGAF.  Was very grateful when Stew took boys to Y to swim last night once he got home, I had no energy for it earlier and enjoyed the blissful silence. Then Stew & I watched first ep. of Vikings season 4, yum.
