Sunday wrap up!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Last week was so rough that I promised myself and asked Special K that everything we do this weekend be relaxing and refreshing. It wasn't perfect but I had a great weekend. Friday night we hung out and relaxed with some beer and I knit.

Saturday, I met my friend Sheryl for our first of many saturday morning walks with the pups. We walked almost 4 miles with the pups. They were tired and hot but I brought plenty of water for them. They slept most the afternoon. The afternoon was spent knitting and relaxing. We grilled brats and Special K's friend and his dog, Ginger came over for the evening. It was tons of fun and surprisingly Abby still had energy to play play play. :) Ginger was fond of Special K.

I finished the Bellatrix socks that night and just had to kitchener stitch up the toes on Sunday morning. I love how they look!! As Special K says they are LOUD but they are awesome!! So, May socks done and on we go!!

I joined a KAL for LetsKnit2gether Podcast for the Clapotis. I've been wanting to knit this so I decided to go for it. It's starting out nicely. I'm enjoying the pattern a lot.
Today after I went to knitting for a bit, Special K and I hit the beach. It was a nice hot day and the water is still cool enough for some relief from the sun. We had a great and very relaxing time. What do you think??

Tonight, Special K made french toast for dinner and it was yummy!! I'm relaxing and knitting some more and preparing for my new job tomorrow. Not really sure what to do to prepare other than to "let go" of my last job. It should be easy but last week wasn't the best one I've had there. I'm just really glad it's over. I am very excited about tomorrow and just hope to find a job that doesn't feel like a "job." Well, hope everyone has a great Monday and I'll let you know how my first day goes!

Happy Knitting!! and for those of you starting your summer break...Happy Summer!!


  1. Your Bellatrix socks are awesome!! Looks like you guys had a great weekend.

  2. The socks look awesome, and I love the color of Clappy. I wanted French Toast for dinner all last week, but the Knight never seemed to be in the mood.

  3. I tried to comment earlier but Blogspot was having issues. Hope you are having a wonderful first day, and after that great refreshing weekend I can't imagine it being any other way.

  4. Wow! Glad you got some knitting done. And had a good weekend with your honey. And you will let go of your old job. One thing I have learned over the course of many years is to give a new job at least 6 months before you make a decision as to whether you like the job or not. I love my job--but there are parts that still feel like a job--after all they don't pay us to have fun--they pay us to work. Hope you get along well with your new co-workers and good luck on the new job.

  5. Love the relaxed sock pose. I really need to start on your podcast! Yea for you!

  6. good luck on your first day! :)
