Just Life

good times, good food.

…sums up friday and saturday perfectly! a day off work is always a great start to the weekend. sara and I enjoyed one of our favorite play days. and I finally figured out last week’s create 08 prompt. my play isn’t really anything like those dolphins, is it?
a sunny day also showed off our house and the huge trees. and I got the photo for this week’s create 08.loved, too, that sara helped me with the words on both photos. the fonts, the colors, and even the placement. it really was a wonderful day!

then yesterday we met up with lydia and jean. belated birthday lunch for jean at pastis. followed by a little bit of yarn shopping at cast on cottage.
and I was inspired by my small purchase (six balls of debbie bliss pure cotton for an easy beach knit) to get my stash organized. yeah, finally!

here is everything in process.
and the finished product.
and I was actually surprised that it all fit into 3 small boxes and two larger ones. of course it does represent years of knitting ahead of me, but I like it all and had fun paging through a few magazines and jotting down notes for a few future projects.

    I like your pages!! Very nice to have a “playdate” with your daughter!! Your house looks very nice, love it when houses are surrounded by trees!!

    Do you think 26 more weeks will fit with 1,5″ rings? Ah well, I like my 2nd book:-))

    Have a nice evening!

    saturday was tons of fun, and i can’t wait to read about your stash-looks like some good stuff peeking out, found the scarf pattern for the “mink” yarn. itching to get started. have enjoyed seeing the transformation of your home over the years, and you’d think by now i could back out of your driveway without running over the grass! great photos-
