Do you ever get out of bed in the morning ready to go right back to bed?
Then you remember; today is the last day of school.
Suddenly, all I want to do is curl up in my chair with my needles and my yarn. I love my boys, but herding them around their Summer tasks is much more exhausting than tending to my own Wintertime tasks. (Sigh.)
At least I had a wonderful sock kit in the mail last week with lots of goodies to play with:
Copine has headed into sleeve land, it's been perfect for TV time, but there has not been a whole lot of TV this week. The Diminishing Rib cardigan has reached the last six inches of the body, and NOW it is starting to eat up the yarn (and I am still loving this yarn). Acer is on hiatus until one of the other two sweaters is finished up. I have no socks currently on the needles, but Empoisonee is next in line.
Miscellaneous Life Stuff:
Well, the HS boys had their banquet last night, put that season to bed. Today, Puck's team has their first game of the Summer. Teen is reffing (not Puck's game), so we are off for the Youth Lacrosse season. I really wish it wasn't so chilly and damp, but I am grateful for the rain (as is my lawn).
Teen is taking the ACT for reals this weekend and then we are heading to the cabin for a brief weekend stint (back Monday!) I plan on sleeping late with all of the windows open so I can hear the Loons in the morning.
I have become convinced that summer totally forgot about Minnesota...AGAIN!
It hasn't broke 70 here in days. CA? June? Weird. I like it, but it's weird.
But when it stops, it's kinda lonesome. Luckily, you have great hobbies, and someday you'll be able to fill all of your 'me' time!
Your summer exhausts me already! But I'm sure the kids are glad it's here. Wish the Teen good luck on the ACTs!
Enjoy all the boyness around you - you can use your knitting and yarn to surround yourself with girlieness.
