Home Alone

The rest of the family is off to a baseball game this evening. At the last minute, we discovered we were given four tickets instead of three ... so I could have gone, but being the homebody that I am, and being quite desirous of some hours at home by myself (which has not been doable since the children's midweek church program finished for the year), I stayed home.

I've just about polished off my list of Things To Do, too! The last event is the Kitchen Floor Scrub. After that comes crafting, which is not an event. No, siree ... it's leisure! I think I'll listen to the next lecture in the Ancient and Medieval Church History class too, from Covenant Worldwide.

My son has been using the camera more than I have lately. I have socks on the needles - but no pictures. I have the Spring Fling on the needles (last sleeve) ... but no pictures. What I do have pictures of is the lovely outdoors.

We have baby grackles traipsing around the yard...

There are baby bunnies hiding in the yard (especially when their momma takes off when I'm 30 yards away, sending one little one flying. I think he may have been nursing. Another little one scampered across the street.)

We've been spending most of our lunches on the front porch. It's not very large, nor picturesque, but it's big enough for us to sit and eat at. I think my son especially likes having a large area to roam while I read to him. Sometimes he roams with a camera. (And gets the First Decent Picture of the Spinnery Jacket ... still without any buttons).

Filia has been in a knitting mood lately. First, she made a baby hat for a local shelter, using the Sugar on Snow pattern (with modifications, of course ... she's my daughter!) . Npw she's working on the Baby Bog Jacket, and is past the neck split. She tells me she's taken to knitting when she can't fall asleep at night. Could I possibly be raising a night owl?

This past Tuesday I got out my loom, vacuumed it off, dusted it off, scrubbed the crayon off (it was used as a car when my children were 2 and 3 years old, and I think they decorated their vehicle), oiled it, and took a picture. It is now sitting in a fiber studio in the town south of us, looking for a new home. If anyone wants to buy a Harrisville Designs T6 loom (36" wide, 4 harnesses) with all the accessories except for the hot chocolate, drop me a note!

I'll toss in a free knitting lesson.

As far as the green banner goes ... Theresa is the closest. And she doesn't even know about my 'other life' which is necessitating the banner. I'll post a picture when it's finished.

Oh! You blogged on your peaceful, quiet day. And you included a picture of your self!! You look like my friend. : ) If I passed you on a midwestern street, I would know you.

But, Filia??

I lament for the loom. I pray a good and happy home.
