Hello again friends.
So far this week has been slow and restful which is exactly what I hoped it would be. All summer long has been busy busy busy. Last week our church hosted VBS. I was in charge of the kitchen and the snacks. So every day there was prep work and a whole lot of clean up afterwards. Taking on VBS is a huge job but can be very rewarding if done right. Anyhow, I told everyone in my family that this week I was going to take it easy. I said I don't want to do anything other than sit and knit and watch the Olympics. I was tired at the time I said it and it really did sound like heaven but realistically there was a whole lot of other things that needed my attention around the house. Isn't that always the case?
I restarted the throw I was working on. I wasn't quite happy with it. It was way too big and the needles I was using were a bit too large. It wasn't holding it's shape very well so I frogged it and started over. This time with a different color so it will seem like I'm making progress even though I'm really not. I'm using smaller needles this time too and I'm liking the results a lot better. I keep my basket here and pick up my knitting while I watch the Olympics in the evening.
I've been cooking a lot of squash and zucchini. There's a sweet older lady from church that keeps bringing us some. I tend to like the green zucchini better than the yellow squash but even then I've been looking for different recipes to use them in. Zucchini bread is always a winner. My husband and kids eat it up really fast. I made it with whole wheat flour this time and it's still delicious. Can't go wrong with zucchini bread.
Youngest daughter starts her sophomore year at high school tomorrow. Son started his work study today at the university but classes don't officially start until Tuesday. These are the last days of our summer break. I'm always a little sad to see them come to an end but at the same time I'm eager to get back into a routine.
So what have you been working on?
What's been keeping you busy?
Would love to know.
