A Productive Weekend

I love 3 day weekends. Because, well, it's a 3 day weekend, folks. But then you go back to work and it's a short workweek too. Sort of a double bonus. Oh, the mind games I play to get through my week sometimes.

It was a great weekend. I finished a pair of socks on Friday night. Monkey socks in Glacier Teal from Mountain Colors.On Saturday, G took the kids for a couple of hours so I could work on trying to get the house organized and do laundry. So I started a load of clothes and tackled the dining room. In our house we have a little nook under a window where I keep my yarn and such. It's about 8 feet by 2 feet. Full of yarn and fiber and JUNK. I got pretty much all the yarn entered into Ravelry. I'm embarrassed at how much sock yarn I have. Probably enough for 20 pairs of socks. If not more. At any rate, it took 3 days, but finally, it's all organized. May I present to you "Wool Corner".

In the bottom bin is fiber. The second bin is generic yarn...worsted, lace, etc. The 3rd bin is all sock yarn. The top bin is notions, like needles, tape measures, and stitch markers. To complete the scene is Rosie and all her spinning paraphenalia.

The next project is to build a window seat for the nook. With more storage space. Because we don't have enough bookshelves.

I was on call on Sunday, but it was a pretty quiet night. Got some more laundry and such done. Monday my parents came over for dinner and we played a game of pinochle. Catie helped frost the cake.
Jack is about to start crawling. He gets up on his hands and knees and rocks back and forth. Plus he army crawls. He's 6 freaking months old. But it makes him tired.
This is actually from last weekend, when we went to Yakima to see G's mom and stepdad. But I haven't had a chance to post it yet. Ain't he just the sweetest thing?

Enjoy the short work week!

ORGANIZATION? What on earth is this world coming to?! Heehee! Maybe some of your ambition will rub off on me, eh?

Those kids of yours are simply beautiful, Jocele. You lucky gal.

Ah, stash management. I had to move my stash before the baby arrived & moved into our bedroom. For me, the challenge was to find a place that didn't contribute to the disaster that is my clothes closet and that was less mildew-prone than my basement. The upstairs linen closet is working out well, though I have no idea where all the bath towels have gone.

Sylvia's poochie toddler tummy is gone & she's becoming a strong, tall girl. Enjoy those beautiful babies while they're here.

Great socks. And I just loved the picture of the sleeping baby.
