It’s been a long few weeks, but I’m still kicking, folks!
First, can you believe it’s almost the end of August? My parents are celebrating their 40th anniversary today and the weather couldn’t be better for the occasion. They’ve taught me that not everything will be smooth sailing, but love, patience, and understanding can help you get through anything. Thanks, mom and dad!
It seems like not much and everything has been happening in the three weeks since I last wrote. I had a birthday at the beginning of the month(happy birthday to me!), and as always seems to happen with birthdays, we celebrated it over a week. A few days after my birthday, my mom went under the knife for total knee replacement surgery. The family’s been chipping in to help her out. Two weeks later, she is recovering nicely and her spirits are good, but it’s difficult to watch someone so strong and vibrant slowed down. We have to think on the bright side: once her knee heals, we won’t even be able to keep up with her!
In knitting news, I’m finishing up some projects, making some mitts for a bride, and planning out holiday projects. I also ordered a beginner’s spinning kit and am a little scared but mostly excited. I’ll let you know how that goes…
I haven’t posted any photos for a while, but I’m working on it. Hopefully I’ll have something in the next few days.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
