I had plenty to amuse myself while he was gone and that included some knitting. The week prior there were several appointments, which meant sitting around waiting rooms, which meant the need for some mindless knitting. So, I knitted a couple of scarves for the battered women's shelter. I will add these to some already made. I also knitted a couple of washcloths for the little hygiene packets I make for the battered women's shelter.
In an earlier post, I showed off the socks I finished. While in the sock-knitting mood, I pulled some more sock yarn from my stash and cast on for another pair. I made good progress on these while DH was off on his fishing trip.

There are more baby knits, but I'll save them for another post.

Here is our campsite:
I will admit that it was a fun weekend. Already, DH is talking about the next time we go camping. Hmmmm, I still like B&B's. But, I would go again.

I finished a cloth using Bernat Handicrafter "Queen Ann's Lace". There are lots of other projects on the needles that I will post another time. For now, I am off to fondle the new cottons.

There are lots more photos of Dozie on my Webshots album. She has her very own photo folder there. (Link on the right.)

I also finished (on my Kindle) reading THE 8TH CONFESSION by James Patterson. This is the newest in the Women's Murder Club mystery series. Good, fun reading. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
Now, the dilemma is which book to start reading next. I actually went to the library this morning to pick up ONE book that was being held for me and came home with THREE. Any serious reader knows that if you enter the library to pick up a book, your body just gravitates toward the new book area and your eyes are drawn to those shelves. So, that's how two more books came home with me.
I am leaning toward starting THE WORLD IN HALF.

I am listening to THE WHITE TIGER by Aravind Adiga on my iPod in preparation for my book group's July discussion. Currently reading HOME SAFE by Elizabeth Berg and enjoying that one, too.
I was in a new-recipe mood yesterday and made a big pot of Mexican Vegetable Soup. Yummy! A bit labor-intensive, but delicious and made a good quantity to have some for another meal and some into the freezer.
I should have some knitting photos soon. In last week's sorting and cleaning out frenzy, I rediscovered a bin of yarn from my Mom's stash. This contained lots of single and/or partial balls of bulky-weight acrylic that I am turning into children's hats for my community service knitting endeavors. I would like to stash bust this entire bin of yarn by knitting lots of hats. I've had some fun with color combinations and can't wait to share the results in a photo.

My Dad is here for a visit and we are enjoying having him. He and hubby are attending the annual Fly Fishing Club Banquet this evening. We went to the nursery today and picked up some tomato plants, which DS has already planted for me. Now, to be patient and wait for those cherry, grape, and pear tomatoes.

On Saturday I mixed up a batch of Refrigerator Raisin Bran Muffin batter. On Sunday I baked a batch of muffins. Yummy!! Not much knitting last week or over the weekend, but I need to make a scarf as a little thank you gift for DH to take to Chicago when he returns there next weekend. I am off work today so perhaps some actual knitting photos soon.
