Stuff, stuff, stuff.

I don't have to work next Tuesday! That's nice...I have a whole uninterrupted week to get some stuff done. I've been able to get knitting and crocheting done at work while the baby's sleeping, but I can't do any sewing and for some reason I don't do well being interrupted in the middle of my sewing...so even if I sew on a day I'm not working, then I'll be working the next day and it throws me off. So anyway, hopefully I'll be able to get my apron sewn and the paper Mache pear finished.

I'm almost done with my sweater, I just need to knit the sleeves, weave the ends of yarn in and then wash and dry and block it. I'm hoping it shrinks some when I wash and dry it because it's a bit large now. :(












I've only got 6 more rows to go on my afghan!! I've been getting a lot of it done at work and in the car.









One other thing I did at work yesterday though, was I pulled out my notebook and started writing down a packing list for camp. Yes, that's still two weeks away, but I've got to use the time when I have it! :) So I wrote down most of a packing list and then groaned at the size of it...I'm a terrible over-packer even for a weekend. :(
So before I actually pack, I'm going to have to ruthlessly go through that list and take a bunch of stuff off of it. Shoes are one of the things that's giving me trouble. I need a pair of shoes for hiking, but whatever shoes I wear for the canoe trip are going to get wet, so I won't be able to wear them the rest of the weekend, and I was also planning on bringing a pair of flip-flops and one of my pairs of Converse sneakers...that's four pairs of shoes for one weekend! That's crazy! I need to see if I can find out how cold it's going to be up there, because that would settle the flip-flop issue if it's cold up there. *sigh* This would be why I can't get by with a tiny little purse either...over-packing.

Well, with all this time, I should get to work and accomplish a lot! :)

I love taking millions of shoes when I go on vacation...it was very hard just to take my flip-flops and champions to the beach, but I have to remind myself that I don't even wear shoes on the beach, and that's where I'll be most of the time.

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one who packs too many shoes! :D

Hi Natalie!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! I've actually visited your blog once before from a link at Life from the Toaster. That's so neat you're knitting a sweater and afghan! I don't know how to knit so it's all pretty impressive to me. :)

To answer your question about which view I hold (Calvinist or Arminian), I agree with the Arminians, but I'm not extremely opinionated about it because I think the Calvinists make some good points too and many of my favorite authors hold the Calvinist view...

I look forward to continuing to read your blog! Have a great weekend!
