Where Did she go?

It is hard to believe that it has been two weeks since I posted and I have so little to show for it!

But, to take stock:

Flooring done : check! The entire upstairs of my house now has a wonderful cherry floor that is much easier to clean than old dingy gray carpet.

Front Door Installed : check! Off with the green creaky monster and on with a bright red door with windows to let some light shine in down the hallway.

Visiting Done: check! An entire week without driving to work that was filled with hiking, icecream, movies and animals. Two boys turned 11 somewhere in there so there were birthday cards and presents too.

Knitting? Well mostly not check. I started some socks, two feet, two heel (unique construction) and one seemingly endless cuff of 2 by 2 ribbing....The construction was more interesting than the socks themselves so they have been relegated to the UFO pile until I want something mindless to do.


Yarn Browsing? Stash Enhancement? Absolutely Check...while I stayed away from my LYS during our hiking expeditions I did a little online browsing and might have enhanced my sock yarn stash by a little bit.
Please excuse the picture there is one other thing that happened in the past two weeks...

Camera dying? Check, whimper, Check.

It is really hard going from a Canon 12.1 Mega Pixel Camera to a Kodak 3.1 that is 11 years old! Notice a similarity between that age and the boys? Yep, it was a birthday present the year they were born.

There is other knitting going on, I will get it blogged about another day, today wasn't one of the best I have had, between feeling like I had been hit by a truck all day to being hit by it! (Not literally.)

As one of the boys put it...So we are back to hardly having you home and not getting to do anything on the weekends? Well, that just sucks.
