Rainy Days

We've had more than our share of them these past two weeks! And it's another rainy one today. It was nice the past 2 days though, I'll have to admit that. But today being rainy is a bit of a pain in the butt. You see, the kids have no school today.

I've been knitting on a pair of socks for me; using merino wool that I treated myself to last fall. On bamboo needles; another treat.

I'm also working on a pair of wool socks for Katie's teachers end of the year gift. She has to do a science project, so her's is "sheep to sock"; the process wool goes through to go from being on the sheep to being a sock. The socks for her teacher will be part of the project.

Hubby built a new mailbox stand for us. We stained it blue. Looks pretty sharp out by the side of the road. I'm in the process of staining a covered seat thing in the front yard the same color. Eventually we'll have adirondack chairs in the backyard that are the same color; or slightly more peacock color.

Had my first riding lesson on Monday night. Enjoyed that. I trotted, and didn't fall off. That is my big fear - falling off. We go every 2 weeks for lessons. Our next lesson I'll be riding our horse, and Katie will ride a lesson horse. If I wasn't hauling a horse trailer it would be a good time to meet with the two ladies from that area that read my blog - but I'm not hauling a horse trailer any further than I need to :)

The craft room is slowly coming along. I have most of the little stuff moved from the lone remaining wall to be painted. Have to move a table and the freezer, then take shelves down, then I can paint.

Our local craft store is closing. The guy who owns it tried hard to make a go of it, but funding just wasn't available for him. I'll be sad to see it close. I bought 3 balls of Bernat Sox yarn from him yesterday.

Can't think of anything else to babble about. Just figured I should post something so you would know I hadn't fallen off the face of the earth :)

Have a good one!

sorry about the rain. We're supposed to have some tomorrow and a few days in a row. Good for the grass, so I'm told.

The blue mailbox and chair will add a bright note to your summer days.
