Almost half way!

 Hey everyone....can yall believe we are almost 1/2 way done with 2024??!!


I haven't done as much knitting as I would like....but this is the story of my life most days.


My newest granddaughter is already over 1 month old



Paige needed a new microwave installed over her stove, so I went to help Kody do it.




Kody celebrated a fabulous First Father's Day yesterday (he has always been a fabulous step dad to Antonio, but now he also has Amira)



I ordered some more stitch stoppers from Elizabeth


I had a work event I had to attend so I actually got dressed to leave the house and a new Hydroflak Cup I got for Lupe matched me perfectly



I do not know how quickly Cicada's hatch...but I went to a 5:30 am workout one morning (Meaning my tires had been spinning at least 45 mph, probably more) and later that morning I went to take the trash out and saw a cicada hatching on my tire.....I was a bit shocked.



Lastly I have had some really amazing meals lately....I should probably cut back on my deserts (and I wonder why I gain weight....LOL)!  The first is an HEB pre made meal I just had to pop in oven with a Crumbl Toffee Cake/Cookie.  The 2nd is a door dash order (cortesy of a vendor at work for a work luncnh meeting) from Carrabba's Italian Grill....complete with Tiramisu.




Lastly....my knitting......I AM ALL CAUGHT UP ON THE 2024 CLUBS!  I finished May Blanket and May Shawl.  June Blanket shipped already and should be here tomorrow and June Shawl (last shippment) will ship around the 25th.




That is all I have!

Have a great week!  I have one AI generated yarn porn pic I snagged from the internet....AI is everywhere....I will never know what is real again....LOL!




Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Its June!!!

 It is June....can you believe it.  6/6/24 and if you add 2 and 4 together you get 6....so, 6/6/6....Lol...Just a little date math.


I have been knitting, but on thinking knitting so I have not gotten too far.  I have been knitting on my monthly shawl.  There are 2 months left in this.  I have been working on April and May yarn.  I actually just got May yarn:





Here is the shawl so far.


Also, I think most of you know that I am friends with the owner of Biscotte Yarns and I try to help run the quarterly KAL in their ravelry group.  Well, they recently posted a KAL for the Summer Lovers Socks.  Well, I purchased some yarn to join the KAL and I am on the fence.....I know I say this every year, but I really want to finish some WIPS before I start anything new and I also really kind want to start this KAL...I could win $100 gift card because you know....I have no yarn....LOL!!!


Here is the yarn I purchased.




I have really, really, really been trying to eat better....so I did some meal prepping and learned a few new recipies I have not completely failed.....






I recently caught a picture of Flower snuggling a toy (baby lamb)....she never really does this...she mostly just tears them to shreads, so I thought this was super cute



Lastly, my son at a recent CrossFit Competition (he is the one making a heart).



Have a great week everyone!
