A Harry Potter Weekend.

My Niece and I are preparing ourselves for the part two of the final Harry Potter movie. We are watching all the Harry Potter movies. We are watching the the first movie now. This has been a slow month for me. I have been a bad blogger. I don't think I will get in more post this year than I did last year. I am knitting dishcloths. Still building my stock for Christmas. I am still reading A Stitch Before Dying by Anne Canadeo. So far a great summer read. It is hard to work in reading, knitting, sleep, and work. Also I have to spend time working in the garden. It is another hot dry summer in my area of North Carolina. You have to water almost everyday. The weeds are taking over one spot in the garden. I pulled weeds yesterday and I plan to spend the week of the fourth pulling more weeds. We have a lot of leaves in the yard and we are using them to keep the weeds out of the garden. I have no plans to go anywhere during the week of the fourth no funds for a vacation. My plan is to work on the yard, garden, and the inside of the house, knit and read, maybe add in crochet. I wish I could go to the beach but I can't afford a trip to the beach. This is the third year at my job without a raise. I am thankful to still have a job but it would be nice to have a raise. Living expenses are going up but not my wages. It it is hard to keep your spirits up thinking about all of these things. Oh well craft on. I am sure things will improve soon.

Finances turned my vacation in August into a "staycation" too. I know how you feel. Sounds like you're going to make the best of it anyway though! Good for you!! :)

My posts are really low this year also. I've been doing so many hours at work, I've been too tired to post!
