Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along ::

I am on the last section of my KAL mystery shawl that I started back in January. It is really exciting to see it taking shape and it is my first lacework shawl. There are a few imperfections but I can't wait to block it and wear it. I am finishing out a baby sweater for little guy also. I have some buttons to attach and a small addition to put on the corner. He won't wear it until the fall. I found a shawl that I had started last year but put away after I became pregnant because I was sick. I am going to pick it up and finish it soon. 

I have been on a reading break this week. After I finish a really good book ( The Movement of Stars) I have to just leave reading for a bit and digest the book I read. I can't jump from one book to the next. I am a bit late since April is almost over but I picked the Selected Poetry of William Wordsworth at the library. I am hoping to enjoy a poem or two each day and maybe try my hand at some poetry writing. I also started reading Cooked by Michael Pollan. He is one of my favorite non-fiction writers. I love how he thinks about food and eating. 

We are off to the Sheep and Wool Festival this weekend. Only 2 more days!

Our Weekend

:: Our Weekend ::

We had a very busy weekend. 

Friday night- I made Shrimp and Grits with a side of Bluegrass music 

Miss E had her first birthday party with friends. 
We decorated chef hats, aprons, and cupcakes in honor of her love of cooking.
They played dress up and dance party. 
It was so fun to watch these little ones enjoy themselves and it reminded me of my birthdays as a girl. 
Later in the evening my brothers and parents came over for pizza and fun. 

Sunday morning, we eased into the day with coffee, crosswords, and breakfast. 
We attended Mass and the Divine Mercy procession afterward. 
The girls were so GOOD during the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and Procession. 
We spent the afternoon at home taking care of business around the house
A quiet dinner and walk to the local park for so much needed outside time. 

What a weekend for the children. They had a blast. Next weekend is for mama. We are going to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. James may have to drag me away from it.
