(The first 3 Strawberries from our garden)
Well, maybe not officially summer, but it feels like it.
Hubby did a super fast, super easy opening of the pool this year--which is great since we've had some really sticky days already.
Princess B is excited to come home from school and swim before and after supper.
Little man has been taking swimming lessons (A Birthday present from Grandma and Grandpa)--and is using some of his new skills (floating, gliding, swimming on his own)
Start of summer also means Soccer season!. Soccer us HUGE in this area (Hockey is big in the winter, but in the summer--Soccer is it)
Princess B is playing in the under 7 league and is very excited to play for the McDonald's team (Free ice cream cones, dontcha' know)
Little man is not playing this year, but gets very excited to put on his soccer shirt and cheer as loud as he can. He also likes rolling around on the grass!
I've also been Knitting (again, I can't show pictures--so that is really boring), and making stuff.
Oh wait, I can show a picture of this:
It's a little Knitted Acorn bag that I test knit for a fellow Plurkie (Plurk is like Twitter but WAY cooler--Twitter makes no sense to me, I cant follow the conversations. Plurk is laid out like conversations and e-mail--all the responses stay together. I 've been on it for a year and have made friends, sold stuff from my Etsy store by posting there first--test knit stuff, etc etc--Join, it's way cool)
So, this Acorn bag is a cute little project bag that you can take your knitting along in--space for a skein of sock yarn, needles etc--Cute little handle on the top!
So, Erin should be releasing the pattern soon--You can see her pattern specs on Rav here
I've made a lot of bread lately, and some homemade yogurt from this tutorial.
I'm not a fan of plain yogurt (I find it too sour)but I can eat this plain--it's that good.
I've mixed some with strawberries and I love it!
So that's what I've been making....(My brain has so many ideas lately, no time and/or hours to do the things I want)
Oh--I have made some soap for the first time in a long time.
The bug hit me one day and I whipped up a batch of Bamboo/Teak scented soap.
(It sounds strange--but I have a Bamboo air freshener that smells so light and fresh that I wanted to find a soap scent to match).
It's naturally coloured with Chlorophyll and smells divine!
