Busy weekend ahead

Isn't summer supposed to slow things down? Not really I guess. Tonight we are going out for my husband's birthday with his mother and stepfather. Not sure what we'll be eating, I hope someone picks a good restaurant! Tomorrow is my sister's birthday, so her husband is hosting a light grill affair! My husband's actual birthday is Sunday... so we'll do something. He is turning the big 4-0. Of course he feels and acts like 28! So it isn't a big deal in his head. He doesn't want to do anything special. We'll probably get food (last year he wanted to order pizza) and relax I guess. It'll be busy that's for sure!

I have been busy working on projects (and not taking pictures!). I got another homespun leftovers blanket done in a large granny square. And I just finished this morning a crocheted shell stitch blanket made with leftover baby yarns (I doubled it to make it go faster and use more yarn!) I want to start another tote, several pairs of socks, and who knows what else before the weeknd is over. I probably will change my mind over and over again!

Several people commented on the fact that I rarely mention the books that I read. So when I do mention my reading I will try to remember to write the title. That last book finished was "T is for Trespass" by Sue Grafton. A friend lent me the book several months ago and I know I will see her next week, so I wanted to get it back to her. If you like the Grafton ABC novels, or if you started them and got frustrated by them (I know I have)... you should read this one. It is one of her better atempts! Bookclub is on Thursday coming up so I will be reading over the weekend between all the food! I am not really happen about the choice, but it will be a fast read... It is "The Summer I dared" by Barbara Delinsky. Not exciting in my eyes, but my bookclub chose it.

Will put out some pictures next time I post.

Isn't it funny how everything gets busy all at once. At least you've had time to read and knit.

Happy Birthday to your husband! My plans for the weekend include planting the tomatoes I just bought at the garden center, finishing a hat & a couple scarves and starting sock #2 of the latest pair.
