Well now I have many have been things going on lately I'm not sure where to go with this post. The weather here is hot so a lot of pool time, but a bit hot for too much handling of yarn. I of course am reading a lot. Trying to keep up with all the book I actually have on my Kindle. Which is near impossible! I have gone over my Amazon wish list and cut off books that I wasn't a fan of the writing. I like that you can read the first chapters in order to get a better feel for the writing, even though that doesn't always work. I have purchased 2 books of late that I just couldn't finish. I read the synopsis, I read the first chapters before purchasing and yet the books fell apart horribly. I really tried to get through them both, but just not going to happen. I actually feel a bit guilty not finishing a book once I start it, but I damn, life is too short to read bad books. Anyway...enough of that, let's move on to yarn and things.
I have a bag full of squares, miscellaneous squares that I had gotten from a square exchange, years ago and a few that I had sampled up. They have been bagged up for a good long time and really needed something done with them. Idea...let's make a bag for my daily work stuff. Grabbed a skein of pink yarn (just a random color) and started with a single crochet around all the squares I had chosen. Hopefully it will turn out ok. I will be lining it as well in order for it to hold it's shape better and so that small items don't drop out. It is going to be a wild & colorful creation!
Katlyn's phone case turned out cute, well at least I think so...she isn't overjoyed with it, but she does use it.

So pool time includes poll drinks! Yes indeedy! Hot days, cold drinks in the pool, usually accompanied by a book while relaxing in the water!
Home time with the pets. Katlyn went out to sushi with my Sister and brought home a bit of leftovers. While chatting with me and finishing off the bits of fish (yuck) Kid decided he needed to try some! So Kid got a taste with chopsticks.

The girl and I finally made it to the closest Barnes and Noble to us these days. Gotta love a bookstore and the smell of new books!
|So. Many. Books.|
Christopher, Alysha and Brooke came down last weekend for a visit! We had a great time...at the mall, in the pool, at the store, out to eat. Just fun all around!
|I like when I have visitors!|
We bought new poolside cups that amused the heck out of us!
|My fancy cup!|
Hanging out in the pool, on a dolphin!

Christopher also picked up his new puppy while he was visiting. Brooke was quite pleased!

So shopping was adventurous and prosperous! Alysha and Chris bought me a new 46" smart TV...oh yeah baby! It is awesome....really just so much happiness in a TV!! Getting it home was the adventure because there were 5 of us...in Christopher's car, which is an Acura TL...not an SUV. good thing I live fairly close to the store!
Alysha asked for a phone case in purple, black and white, really the least I could do...of course I had already planned and bought the yarn for it, but still.
Home Goods on Monday...Alysha wanted to visit and buy a feeding dish for Navi that she had seen on a previous visit to the store near her. They have some very cool stuff in that store, I mean come on, who doesn't need a ceramic head planter??
|shouldn't everyone have one?|
Brooke is now in Kindergarten and so smart and of course most adorable!
|my pretty princess|
I got Christopher's taco chicken finished for him to hang in his car! Even managed to include the T-Rex charm!

Got Alysha's phone case finished up, she chose a button and used it happily. I forgot to take a picture of the finished product though and had to have her send a shot to me. It really is not crooked, not sue what's up with the picture she took!
And for the final bit of the weekend...we got a new bunny. Pet store + Katlyn + Brooke = no hope of bunny escape for me! But seriously though...look at that face!
That's it, yes a bit much, but that's what's up!
