Okay, hopefully this post will make more sense than the last long one I posted! I'm not really sure what happened there... Let's see...
My knitting. I started knitting this pattern but I think I'm going to add some sort of sleeves to it. Either cap sleeves or long sleeves if I have enough yarn. Either that, or I'll leave the sleeves off altogether and have a neat vest. It's going to take a while to knit, because I'm using really thin yarn. I started it on Tuesday, and so far this is all I've gotten done! :)
I finished my history book today!!!
It's finally getting warm enough that I got my box of summer clothes out of the attic. The clothes are now in a pile on my bed and the cat is sleeping on them... Okay, I'm glad she's happy. *rolls eyes*
It sounds like we've got a lot to do this weekend...Mom ordered some blueberry bushes so Dad and I might be digging holes tomorrow...maybe not. I'm not sure when the plants are coming. We need to get to Lowes and get some tomato plants. One, or maybe two tomato plants. No more than that!! And green peppers...no, wait those aren't supposed to be planted until May according to my vegetable book. Okay, no peppers yet.
I've got a nice little guide published by the NC Cooperative Extension Service that lists when various vegetable are supposed to be planted and what varieties are best for here. We picked up the booklet at the state fair a few years ago...when was that we went to the state fair? '03 or '04...but I hadn't used it much until last year. It's very handy...I just realized I need to get green beans planted pretty soon.
Okay, what was I talking about? Oh, this weekend... our next-door neighbors' grass needs mowing, but that might just have to wait till during the week.
My friend Zoe is going to the Father and Daughter Retreat with her dad this weekend. Ha...Doug Phillips...hmm... He has a system for everything. And most of the systems seem to involve buying stuff he sells and going to the retreats he arranges. Dad was joking that we should have gone, since Zoe and her dad are going. Mmm-hmm. I told Dad I'd help him install the kitchen faucet this weekend instead. :p That's more my style.
(Oh how annoying! There is a gnat or mosquito or something that keeps flying in front of the computer screen...)
This is neat-looking:
Okay, I think I'll go see what I need to be working on and maybe get some sewing done...or go for a walk...it's really nice out.
