I’m not sure I can express how excited I am to have the day off tomorrow. Especially because I slammed my finger in the door in the bathroom at the Ruby Tuesdays today and typing is a wee bit painful. Fortunately it’s my left hand so it doesn’t affect my crochet. Ha!

Lots of pictures today! First of all, I played hooky from church to go mall walking with my dad.
Then we swung by the house to pick up Dr. M & went back to my dad & Sue’s house whereupon they fed us (yum!). We went out to check out my dad’s garden.
Then we went to my brother’s house to pick up their old dining room table. Thanks to my brother & his wife for wanting to get rid of it & thanks to my dad for helping Dr. M get it set up in our house.
THEN Dr. M saw a wren on the front porch. We wondered if it had been born in the nest that was in the petunias last year.
Finally, the moon!

Block #16 in my last colorway. I don’t really like the green – I kind of wish I’d picked a different 4th color for this blanket, but 16 squares in I’m not going to be making any changes. This isn’t for me anyway – hopefully it can find a home with someone who likes the color combo. I’m thinking about selling it. We’ll see!
I thought I’d show all four squares so you can see how different color combos can completely change the look of a pattern.

Last year when I couldn’t walk out to the impatiens bed, Dr. M would occasionally bring me a popper to pop (popping the seed pods is my favorite part of impatiens). He dumped the seeds in our palm plant & this year we ended up with five impatiens plants! We’ve even had some blooms. Makes us smile.

My lovely dinner. That’s edamame, not lima beans (well, I guess technically it’s mukimame – edamame is soybeans in the pod).
Thursday, August 30th
I didn’t actually take all of them on Thursday, but I decided to group all the furniture pictures from work here.
Friday, August 31st
Dr. M watered the plants and then we got a gullywasher. Ha!
Saturday, September 1st
How the heck is it already September? I spent the morning trying to work on the new blanket block, but it was coming out WAY too big (like 2 inches too big), so I gave up & decided to make an alternate. This is from 2015’s crochet along. It looks complicated, and it is, a little, but so much fun!
I was getting ready to head out to clean my car windshield & saw this tiny little guy on the porch. Dr. M had to get his photo. I love the bright blue tails that these five lined skinks have when they’re young.
It feels like I had something to say here, but my mind is blank. Oh! I can mention that today at church I took such a big hunk of communion bread that my brother said I had to count it as two WW points. I got so tickled that I had to work VERY HARD not to start giggling during communion. And the look on my face apparently made the people around me also have to work hard to stop giggling. When was the last time you laughed at an inappropriate moment?
