Weekend Fun

Our town had its annual Privateer Days this weekend. It was the first time in six years that I didn't have a kid with me to watch the parade! One was in this group with the skaters, the other was in a firetruck with Daddy. Then Saturday evening we took them to the rides, and last night was the fireworks (no pics this year). The oldest played a couple of games and won some stuffies, as well as - of all things - a big Spongebob hammer - that Blogger won't upload. That's all they need - a beating weapon! It's since made its way to the hall closet.

Got a new one of these today, gas powered with a 22" blade. We really need it for that mamma jamma hedge we have! Now I just have to get hubby to use it.

Old Yeller is gone. We signed the papers today. I'll still see her on the road, I'm sure. Now we have to concentrate on switching our other truck from one company to another. That truck is leased, so we have to get power of attorney from the lease company to switch it. If all goes well that will be done in a day or two. Right now it's in the garage, probably going to cost a lot. It's burning too much fuel, plus something is up with the alternator. Hopefully the fuel thing will prove to be warranty work. Oh, well, it has to be fixed one way or the other.

Been knitting mostly cotton dishcloths for the past few days. I took five of them to the store, and I forgot to take pictures. I go overboard - the Boss Lady wanted dishcloths, and I couldn't decide on colors, so I ended up making a total of seven so far and have enough to do at least four more. I did start a pair of socks for me last night, but I only got five rows done. I will take some pics when there's more to show on them.

I have more pictures, but Blogger crapped out. Will try next post.

Got to go do my dishes so I can sit and knit and watch the US fireworks on TV!

Happy knitting!

Hope all goes well with your truck! Those dish clothes must sell well at the store if you are knitting that many!! I haven't done any for years.
