I guess we are finally getting our summer heat. I wish it had been in July, since I am not really a fan of 90 degree weather. I am hoping that it doesn't run into Sept. It is terrible starting school when it is hot and humid and 90 degrees. Maybe it'll pass after this week.
Despite the heat I worked on wool blankets. Sad I know!
Finished these last week. I had a bag full of odds and ends that my MIL had found at a garage sale about 5-6 years ago. I used a lot of it when she gave it to me for socks and other small charity projects for kids in Russia, but as I was cleaning the stash room, I found the end of the bag. There was enough for two pretty large blankets. So they have some fun shades and tweeds when you look close. I am happy that I used up the bag, but non of them had any wrappers so I don't know what they were or how much was there.
Had a nice birthday on Friday. Very quiet. I stayed home and read and enjoyed some solo time while hubby went to a bike ride. My sister's gift arrived form VA too. An ornament, earrings and a drawing from Ellie. Hubby was too good to me. I told him not to go overboard... he tends to overspend. He found a little speaker to plug into my Ipod and it is amazing sound! Now I don't have to use earbuds or lug around a huge player when I go outside to the deck! My second gift was a cell phone. I have been holding out not getting one. But hubby really wants me to have one just to be safe when I am traveling. I guess I am ready to have one. It may come in handy.
Today I was going to go shopping since I have a few gift cards to spend, but it is going to be in the 90's today and well, I grabbed several movies from the library yesterday and I am back to knitting... so why would I want to leave the house?
