A week and a day

In the last week I've made a lot of progress on my Central Park Hoodie and I'm still going strong. The only question is do I take a quick detour to make a little knitted duck for Emma for her half birthday and maybe whip up a knitting bag to take my stuff with me to Wisconsin in a few weeks or stay with the current project? I'm afraid that if I put it down I might break the spell and never get going on the hoodie again. Choices choices.

Today Morgan and I worked on our (read: my projects I sucked him into for heavy labor) various gardening endeavors and made so much progress. What you see is one of six flower boxes now filled with perennial ground cover and my garden plot that already has one row of rhubarb and one row of beans planted. All that's left to do is put the rest of the seeds into my garden. I know I'm making a late start of it this year but something tells me we're going to be having a long, hot summer. Today it's 89 degrees in the shade and I felt like I was about to have a stroke pulling all the weeds out of those flower beds. *phew*

Also, for your viewing pleasure, a pretty little green cricket decided to hang out in one of my roses out front. Lovely. :) We're having friends over for dinner and I have this new (from a garage sale) castle-like cake pan I want to try out so it's off to the kitchen. If it works out I'll post some pictures. Ta-ta!

LOVE the hoodie. stick with it. you can BUY a bag to bring to wisconsin and call it your knitting bag. much easier solution, I think.

good luck on the garden! jer has already harvested our rhubarb and made 2 pies, of which, he ate.
