Happy Thursday everyone. Things have been busy around here this week. I've been packing, but not real sure what to take since I've never been on a cruise before. I'm just taking similar things as I would to Hawaii. I figure anything I absolutely have to have and have forgotten I would probably be able to get on the ship, right?
This is what happened at our house on Monday. Fun times.
Before it was all said and done we had a couple of inches on the grassy areas. It was all gone within a few hours but it was a sad fact that winter is still trying to have it's way with us.
We hadn't been back to the lake since we left Sunday morning, so this morning I drove out so I could run the furnace for awhile and check things out. I took a hike to the lake and it was beautiful there. This was about an hour ago. Pretty, pretty.
The beach still has lots of pine cones and pine needles. It will be all cleaned up by the opening date of May 1 though. The maintence guys at the park are hard workers. They were mowing the grass when I was there this morning.
The log cabin blanket is progressing slowly but it is growing. I will most likely be working on this for years.
I made a couple of baby hats on Monday for the twins at church who have outgrown their newborn hats. Unfortunately I didn't think to take a picture and Dennis gave them to their Grandpa on Monday evening so the babies could get them quickly. Based on the snow above, you can tell that hats are still needed for babies.
I also made this crocheted sweater this week for World Vision Knit for Kids. It's the crochet pattern they provide and I just adapted the yoke a bit with some front post double crochet to jazz it up a little. They provide a knit and a crochet pattern and prefer that the sweaters be made with their patterns. It's kind of a blah pattern but it works well and will keep a child warm and that's what counts. You can find out more about Knit for Kids on World Visions website. If you're interested in helping the most helpless around the world, I encourage you to check it out. There are SO many organizations that need things for children. I wish I could knit and crochet faster.
Funny thing. The wall the sweater is hanging on is a dark blue and the sweater is pastel blue. What's up with the color on my camera?
