A Little of Everything

Good day all! I hope you are all having a good day and week! Today we were supposed to get some rain (it was a 60% chance!) and it hasn't come yet, I wish it would, it would make taking Little A out back so much more comfortable. Hopefully all this excessive heat we've been under will melt away and we can spend more time outside. We've been going to the pool, which Little A loves but sometimes she's too brave and goes out too far for her reach. She doesn't mind going under, she actually finds it pretty funny, but she has no idea how to get back once she's gone too far. Everytime we go she gets more interested in the water over watching all the people. Well, anyway, I just want to do a quick shout out to my little sister who turned 22 yesterday! Happy Birthday S!

I found these cuties while searching (holy cow, I have no idea where I got them from Google, but if they're your's I'm not trying to take any kind of create for them!) and I think I can make a pattern for crochet ones from looking at them. Only time, and actually getting to it, will tell. But they are so cute!

I haven't done much crafting lately, but Tonka and I have been spending most evenings in the recliner in the basement. He's such a lover. Plus, that lap afghan, or lapghan, is a recently (almost finished) project I was working on. Why can't the ends weave themselves in? It's real teal and spring green from Red Heart and those colors together are so yummy.

Do you remember when I was stuck up on the hate Jane Fonda was wearing? Well, I finally just did it! Finished it just the other day! Wait for it...

Ta-da! I don't think it's exactly like it, obviously, but it's a great look-a-like I think! Plus it's my first one, the next one should look a bit better, I'm still pretty proud of it.
Little A and I went out with a friend and her kids yesterday, her oldest son will be three in October. It was fun but it was so hot and we got a late start and by the time lunch rolled around everyone was hungry and kind of cranky. Ok, at least I was! But her son and Little A kept holding hands! It was so cute! Wish I had a picture of it, it is in facebook though.

I've also been meaning to share these with you. E loves homemade things, especially if they're made just for him. I had left over fabric from when I made the curtains, I'm a chronic over buyer of fabric because I don't want to be short or mess up and not have enough to redo it. There were no plans for the fabric so I made him two pillows! Despite their different sizes both are equally comfortable to snuggle with.
Oh! Last night, for the first time in over a year, I went to see a movie, by myself. Well, with a friend. But wait! It wasn't just any movie! It was Harry Potter!!! I'm a huge fan of Harry and have been waiting to see it. It was fabulous! It was everything I wanted it to be! The director David Yates, in my opinion, is one of the best ones the Potter series has had. I also will admit, I cried! I can't wait for it to come out on DVD so I can watch it repeatedly like I do the others. Sorry, the nerd in me came out a bit. But E was so sweet and took over my nightly duties for me including bathing and feeding Little A then putting her to bed, all without complaint! I sure am lucky to have him.

(rain in the south a few days ago, off the back deck.)
That's about all for now I think. Hopefully, I'll be able to show you some stuff that I'll try to get done, I need to get my lazy butt in gear! I hope you have a great week!

Until next time!


  1. so what do you mean the nerd came out in you its always out in you, lol. but it's a cute nerd for sure. love the blogs keep it up! and oh yeah don't be late.(wed) your momma loves you kiddo!

  2. I hate weaving in ends, too. I have to make myself do it as I go or I would probably never finish anything. The hat is cute =) I can't even bring myself to think about making hats or anything yet... it's so so hot. I think the only reason I can work on afghans is because they're granny squares and I'm only working on a little piece at a time =)


Leave me a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
