Holy crow this has been a busy week and it’s not over yet. Yesterday was Thing 2’s birthday (10!) and he spent it at a combination ice hockey- waterpark camp. I spent the day getting things done around the house like washing all the pool towels and gutting the pantry.
That bin on the bottom right is the recycling. I found all kinds of things living in the pantry. I should’ve cleaned the shelves while I was at it, but really it was a big job without that. I found cans of evaporated milk that expired in 2011.
Mind you, I should be packing more stuff. I make lists. Long lists. And then I decide to do things like make granola bars.
I spent today at appointments. More rounds of “the last time we’ll…” I spent the early evening on a conference call (that had at least 50 people on it – thankfully most of them were just listening) that was frustrating at times. An organization I support is in a time of change and it’s a challenging experience.
I managed to get a knitting shot in before the phone call:
On the left is another one of my blanket squares – a berry stitch this time. I opted to start something new this morning so that I didn’t have to carry around that large skein of yarn for a square that’s almost finished (or to bind off and start again out of the house). Instead, I brought the sock yarn on the right and started a simple mug cozy. I don’t know if there’s enough in that little ball, but I think I have more leftover.
Okay. I’m exhausted. Adios.
