Bad News On My Sock Progess

Well I have been working on the gusset and I just realized today that somewhere along the way, I forgot to add my knit round. I continued the sock working only the decreasing round. So this is such a big screw up! I don't think I will ever get this pair of sock done. I really want to get this sock thing down! I brought another skein of sock yarn and really would like to continue! So I am determine not to give up ! I need another rescue me session. I think I need to make a trip to High Point this weekend. I know the sock needs ripping back so I can start the gusset over again, but I am not brave enough to do this all by myself. My crochet project is going better it is another Beth's Little Star Afghan. It is for my cousin's new baby due in August. I am not so sure on the color but I can't show until after the baby shower. I really need to spend a lot of time crocheting during the next week. The baby shower is next Saturday. I finally participated in a kettlebells class at the gym and I can really fell it! The class involves lots of squats!, and handling a weight. My weight was only 4 pounds. So now I realize just walking the treadmill, doing the elliptical, and the bike is not enough! I am so glad tomorrow is Friday!

Quiet Monday Evening

I am having a quiet Monday evening. My Daughter was here today and we cooked out on the grill in despite on the thunder storm and rain. The storm past quickly and we have a cover on our deck so the grill did not get wet. We grilled chicken and ribs, tried to do corn on the cob and asparagus. Cece was so excited to see Kendra that of course tinkled. I was afraid she would forget who she was but I was wrong. The cats are happy again now that the invader has gone. I miss Cece even though she kept me very busy. Puppies have a lot of energy. I have a few pictures to post of Cece. I could not get her to be still long enough to get a real good picture. My daughter was able to take a good one of her sleeping in her lap today.

Fur Baby Sitting

I have spent the weekend fur baby sitting. My daughter went to Raleigh this weekend and I am baby sitting her puppy . She has a lot of energy. I am just a little worried about her right now because she went in her travel cage and she's just sitting in the cage looking a little sad. She has spent most of her time here playing and running around so maybe she's just tired. So no knitting or crochet in the past week. I think I knit a few rows on my sock on last Sunday. I finished reading Left Over Dead, by Jimmie Ruth Evans. I have read all of the books so far in the series. My container tomato's are progressing and I am thinking of doing a few late plantings in a kiddie pool. It is something my supervisor read about on the internet and told us about last Thursday. What she told us was you get a plastic kiddie pool put a hole in it for drainage, add mulch, potting soil, and top soil. Then add your plants. My Lilies are in bloom.
