The weekend's all gone again

Here we are back at Monday and I did not accomplish what I wanted to!  By Wednesday I gave up trying to beat the weather and turned on the air conditioner.  I had been running it only after dark in hopes of keeping my electric bill from causing my heart to stop upon opening the next bill, but I have too many animals and just can't let them suffer like Katlyn and I are willing to do.  We went to my Sister's to hang out in the pool after work on Wednesday and came home to a pleasant temperature for a change and the animals were much happier!
My oldest text me on Wednesday asking if he could come hang out with me for a bit so he is now staying until the beginning of September!  Yay, that means I will finally get my carpet out! He will be put to good use for his stay!  
Thursday is really the only day in which I sat myself down and crocheted for a decent period of time, and while I didn't finish the blanket, I did make some progress.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday we hung at my Sister's house swimming.  No blanket making got done during that time :)
My Galileo thermometer says it's too hot.
Kid's way to beat the heat!

So the progress picture, not too bad.  Started on the 4th repeat and I think I may have enough yarn to complete all of the stripes.  Don't know about the border yet and I did want to make a matching stripy hat, so I think I will be buying another set of these colors, but pretty cool that I got it nearly done with only 5 skeins.  

progress as of August 13th
So that's it for today, I am staying home tonight and dinner is in the crock pot already so I can relax at home for the evening!  So looking forward to it!
