Yarn Along 6/29/2011

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. ~

Hello all! I am still knitting on Summer Love(I am on the sleeves!!) BUT I couldn't hold out any longer-- I have casted on for another project! Reinette -in lovely brown superwash wool. For no one in particular-- just for me, I guess. I haven't done a whole lot of reading or knitting  this week but a book or my needles are never far from my thoughts or my hands.
 Reading-- I am still reading Union Quilters. Again, I am afraid I haven't read much this past week. I did pick up 15 minutes outside at Borders last week. It is a lovely read-- full of ideas for an indoor girl to do with her outdoor boys(they require being outside at least part of the day) and this is a great way to accomplish this! It is really great-- it breaks down the activities into months of the year.
The children and I have been at Vacation Bible School this week! It is in the evening but I feel like the time we wait to go to VBS has been spent getting ready to go to it! The boys have asked every hour, "It is time to go yet?" Which means I have tried to plan activities that will result in that question being asked less! And dinner has been something of a thorn in my side. The first night we had sandwiches-cold sandwishes(ugh). The next night was something more involved(again, ugh...chicken patties) and last night was crockpot night! A pot roast, green beans and potatoes, and italian rice! All dishes were made in 3 crocks! Tonight will be sloppy joes (again, in my beloved crockpot). I am not designing the meals for all of us to eat gathered around the table-- rather for all of us to eat at different times. I am not a fan of this way-- I prefer for us all to eat together. But for a week it will do.
Taylor's(Eldest) birthday is tomorrow- 15 years old! How(and when) did that happen? We will be making a rainbow cake and pigs in a blanket for dinner! I wonder if they can be "crockpotted"? That is what my Little Miss has asked for so that is what we will make.
I, ordered a "new" bible (well, new to me-- I bought used on amazon) so that I can read the Bible in 90 days. I have wanted to join a bible study for a long time and this is a great way to do it. "It is not a study of the Bible, instead it is a read through." Sounds perfect to me!


  1. The great thing about "pigs in a blanket" is that they are good hot and warm, if you know what I mean.

  2. I will have to look for 15 Minutes Outside because we need to be out every day too. Thanks for the suggestion :)


Thanks for stopping by- I treasure hearing from you.
