Lazy Sunday

Woke up this morning and went for a walk with my friend S. It was nice to be up and about. The weather was a little bit cool, but that is good when you're exercising. T and I are sharing a CSA box with S and her husband. We start getting vegies this week! So exciting!

After the walk, T and I stuffed ourselves with hot dogs! Yum! I don't know why, but I just love hot dogs. I know that they're generally pretty disgusting, but I, and my entire family, love them. So, it's fun to eat all different sorts of hot dogs to compare and see which one is best, especially when it's for charity. I like Pearl hot dogs and Kelly's hot dogs, but those I mostly like because they grill and butter the bun. Yum!

Then we went shopping for lamp shades. We bought lamps for our living room, but the store didn't have matching shades, so we went hunting for some. After looking at a few stores, we decided just to order them online, so that's what I did.

Oh, and yesterday our painter came over and we discussed color for the house. We are all set. We are due for a power wash of the outside this week, and they will start scraping and painting next week. I can't wait! This is our last huge project in our house (at least for a while) and it is going to look so good. I'm very excited.

Lastly, I finished another crochet animal today. Here is my little mouse.

Next, I am knitting a caterpillar.

You're so creative! Have you ever considered selling your creations?

I need to do CSA one of these years. I keep saying I'm going to, and I never get to it. (I think this year's excuse is pretty good, though.)

I find non-online shopping very frustrating, unless it's for clothes. For things you don't have to try on, the internet is so much more convenient.

Good luck with your painting! It sounds exciting!

Wow! I am so happy for you, I know how good it feels to get things accomplished and to do little things for yourself. Sometimes it makes all the difference! Your little animals are so cute. They remind me a bit of the cute little animals they put on your bed at night on a cruise. Kuddos!

i LOVE the mouse! can't wait to see the caterpillar. the house painting sounds very exciting, a nice renewal. i understand why you feel that sense of dread about the IVF cycle, but i hope stimming gives you a feeling of a new start also.
