For real

After a jam packed day at school testing children and having IEP meetings in the afternoon, I stopped by Susan's house to look at her new acquisition of yarn for us to determine that the gauge was off for the cute, adorable sweater dress she is making from Adorable Knits for Tots: 25 Stylish Designs for Babies and Toddlers by Zoe Mellor - the yarn made the gauge too big and it is already on size 3 needles - I hate it, but she now has great stash acquisition.

I knit two pattern repeats on the baby afghan from Debbie Macomber's book - I am looking at the pattern fewer and fewer times, but it is getting a bit boring - it's nice to be able to not look at your knitting and can focus on other things, such as one of my few favorite tv programs Rachel Ray's $40 Dollars a Day - she is just so perky you can't help but like it. Interestingly she went to her hometown the other day and she showed some pictures of her while she was in her teens. I should have known she was a cheerleader by the sound of her voice - she has the timbre of one who has belted out the cheers - and the voice tells it all.

The evening was topped off by Laura's bed being taken apart for her big trip to college - tomorrow, very early, we will travel with bed, washer, and dryer on the back of the truck to her new abode. Let's pray that the trip is relatively uneventful and that all remains on the truck and her room is not condemned here for all we found underneath the bed. How come my kids pick out places that they cannot take their pets with them? Anyone want two cats???

I will miss Shawl Ministry meeting and the monthly meeting of St. Sophia's Chapter of Daughters of the King - I know they will pray for our safe travel and guidance for being to get the washer and dryer off of the back of the truck without any damage to our bodies.
