Currently :: August 30th

Doing: I finally finished my Boneyard Shawl! I won a skein of Caterpillar Green yarn in the Concrete and Tulip colorway from one of Taiga Hilliard's Instagram giveaways back in June. The yarn is AH-MA-ZING. It's a wool, cashmere, nylon blend and it's oh so soft. It's also a self striping yarn that is perfect for this shawl pattern.

Listening, eating, loving, watching: I'm totally lumping all of these into the same category because yesterday was the first band show of the year!!! It was just a preview show, as the official season hasn't started, but it was a great trial run. I love seeing and hearing all the bands. But this does mean that I'll be eating quite a lot of food that isn't good for me. Yesterday I ate mainly Snickers and donuts.

Weather: The weather has been amazing! It's starting to get a little hotter though and with that comes humidity. Boo.

Thinking: We visited an ENT about Neil's broken nose (that the ER said wasn't broken) this week. He said that if we had come to see him within 2-3 days he could have just push it back over, but because it had been 15 days, he couldn't. Since he is still in the middle of soccer season, he suggested we schedule an appointment in six weeks and see about fixing it then. Neil was so excited that he wouldn't have to miss any games that I didn't have the heart to tell him they will likely re-break his nose in six weeks.

Next week will be insanity. Three soccer games, a band fundraiser, a homecoming football game, and probably a little of some other strange happenings. But in the midst of all of this craziness, a little light at the end of the tunnel... Chris got that new job. He doesn't start until September 8th though.


  1. Oooh, rebreaking it sounds HORRIBLE! Poor kid!

    I'm glad things are going well for you. And I'm so excited that Chris got that new job!!

    1. I know!! I hope I am wrong and they won't have to do that, but..... I *think* they will! I just hope I'm not the one who passes out or gets sick!
