Springtime

It's definitely springtime here. Well, at least this week. It's been gorgeous all week so far and is supposed to continue through the weekend. Yesterday after Darren got home from school we stayed outside until 5. Today Logan and I went for a walk around 1. He fell asleep for about 30 minutes. When we got home we stayed outside. He played in the sandbox and on his tricycle while I bagged up six more big bags of leaves! We have a prickly hedge that goes down both sides of the yard and across the back yard. That was just down one side! That must put the total number of bags of leaves between some last fall and so far this spring at 28ish. I should have kept a better count. I will continue tomorrow. I have to work, but it's going to be sunny and +12Celsius so I'm sure once Darren gets home from school we will be outside til suppertime again. We had to stop playing outside today at about 4:30 because I had to meet our driver outside of the paper mill to get my pay statement from him.

Travis should be home sometime Thursday. He's in Montreal and picked up a rather large seadoo that takes up about half of the flatdeck. In the morning he's picking up some other stuff and then will be heading home. This is a picture he took with his cell phone, thus the not-so-good quality, of what he hauled from Red Deer, Alberta, to Montreal. Guess he was right when he said he needs to wash his truck when he gets home! She look pretty grungy. But our yellow truck doesn't! I didn't think it could get any more yellow! That poor truck doesn't know what hit it! Our driver and his wife are neat freaks and have that thing spotless inside and out. She looks good. Here's a pic he sent me. He plans on doing more polishing this weekend.

Got some goodies in the mail today. I saw Quickeye had these, so I ordered some. They're from aCloset.com. I love them! She even sent a little bag to keep them in! My first nice stitch markers. I am going to keep an eye out for new ones. I really like the penguins, but they were sold out. A couple of these even have little bells on them!



I also got one of my eBay purchases today. I love Coronation Street, and I bought this doodle by one of the actresses that was sold for a charity auction. I will take it to work and get it framed.

I guess I didn't check my mail last Friday. There were notices sent out about the military training exercises in town on the weekend! Guess I was one of the few who didn't know anything about it!

Anyhoo, must go do some knitting. I haven't gotten much done the past few days where its been so nice. I have shaped the instep on my sock I started the other day. I hope they won't be too loose. I'm sorta making up my own pattern. I also have only one sleeve left to make for Logan's jacket, plus the hood and button bands (and the dreaded sewing-up!). I also remembered to get another pack of 2.25mm needles so I can get to work on those Sockapalooza socks!

Happy knitting!

Nice score! Looks like Julie/Hayley was in a love and peace mood when she doodled.

I'm waiting for acloset to replenish her stitch markers too, I love the ones I have (and the little details she added on them).

I love the yellow truck, too awesome! :)

I haven't seen the stitch markers before. They are really cute!
Glad to hear Travis is on his way home!
We went to an outlet mall and I bought 2 Coach purses and wallets to match! One is for summer and the other is for the rest of the year. I never get a summer purse so this is nice for a change.
