Finished Objects, Silly Objects, and Sick Objects

A few Finished Objects:


This is a PINK tank top for Thing 2 (because is there any other color for a 5 year old?? Well, besides purple of course...) made of discontinued, need-to-use-it-up Cotton Ease. She looks really cute in it :)


The Deck!!! minus a couple of stairs (which are almost done) and plus a few dogs-but who really needs stairs??

A Silly Object:

And a Sick Object:

Me.

No, I am not posting a picture of it, but I have pink eye and some sort of achy, sinus torture going on. I am grouchy about it and irritable and have been unable to post lately because of feeling like garbage and being in that "week before we go on vacation" stress mode. Sometimes I wonder if going on vacation is worth it with little ones-not because it is not fun, but the herculean effort involved sometimes negates the warm fuzzies associated with vacation. However, we always have a fantastic time once we get there so we will press on, sick or not!! I've got my knitting projects planned, my Summer Interweave Knits and Summer Vogue Knitting as well as my 3 knitting novels-any bets on how much I ACTUALLY do? I like to pretend I will have lots of quiet relaxing time-hahahahahahaha. Hmmm, maybe I should have listed myself under Silly Objects.

5 days till Hilton Head-the countdown begins....

OHGAUD. Pink Eye, oh, the loathing. The crust. The aching. The humiliation. It drains into your throat and you get that flu thing, coughcoughcough. Salty air, sand between the toes, go 4 it...

I can so relate. I remember when I had to pack for the beach vacation for the family. I would pack all the food,towels, toiletries, linens, toys, beach stuff, and clothes for myself, and my three. It would take days of lists and planning to get it all done. Then the night before we left my husband would take about 15 minutes to throw a few things into his suitcase. I was exhausted before I left. Ahhhhh, those were the days. Feel better soon. The salt air should clear up those sinuses. Then you can just enjoy the sand everywhere :-))

Debbie!! have you been to my house!? my lists are spread out on my table even as I type!! the food lists, the clothes lists, the "misc" lists, the beach stuff lists, and on and on and on....i'm already dragging and it's only monday. Can't wait to see just where the sand ends up this year with the little one-i have lots of pictures of my oldest eating fistfuls of it-gross.

Gina-my eyes are killing me-i'm thinking of ripping them out. hope you're doing better!

Sorry about the eye-- hope it's not pervasive in Blacksburg-- I sure don't need it (and can't work if I get it!) Guess I'll bring along my industrial sized jug of Purell.

Hope you're better soon, and that you have a great time at the beach.

Jody-- Thanks for your comment on my blog. I couldn't find a link to your email on yours...

Look at, (I think) Cat Bordhi's website. If it's not hers, then check the other author links on Gina's TNNA blog entry. There is a complete-- and I mean COMPLETE set of lesson plans on how to teach kids to knit. I plan to print it and use it with future Girl Scout projects.

I'm telling you Jody, you are me 15 years ago!!!!!!!!!! We still find sand packed away with all the beach stuff. It multiplies in the winter. Feel better soon.
