Monday mornings are the worst but when you’ve just had a four day weekend they seem to suck just a little bit less than the average Monday. My 4th of July weekend was even quieter than my usual weekend – I have big big plans for this coming weekend so I kinda just laid low for the long weekend….and by laid low I mean caught up on all the chores, cleaned the house, read Outlander, went dress shopping, drank some beer, made some bread, lots of knitting and lots of Netflix. It was pretty damn awesome!
4th of July isn’t Boomer’s favorite holiday on account of the fact that death is approaching the house from all sides therefore he must howl at the top of his lungs and run around with his eyes popping out of his head until the danger has passed. I brought him to the park for a walk to tire him out before the fireworks started but I miscalculated the time and we ended up one mile away from the car when the first few started…..it took us another 40 mins to get back to the car. At home I can put a firm hand on his back on the couch and so long as I stay calm he won’t lose his mind…..but in the park well all bets were all. I alternated between trying to get me to carry him and trying to run at the speed of lightening. It was quite the ordeal.
I managed to finish the grey cable knit blanket…hurray!!!!! Seriously that thing took so long that I ended up almost hating it by the end. But it’s done – I’ll have photos to share later but I wasted no time at all in getting launched into the next project. Next up a cardigan in this wonderful Malibrigo yarn I picked up on my last trip to Asheville. I already love how it’s knitting up.
Roll on the weekend!!!!
