Remember when “potpourri” was a category on Jeopardy? I don’t think they use that any more, so I guess it’s available for a blog post title.
– Fat Tuesday: Last report for a while. Lost another pound for a total of 11. I’m going to continue on my “health plan” as best I can during the rest of this busy summer and only report periodically.
– The Scott County Fair starts tomorrow. If you’re going to be at the fair on Friday, our DayStitchers group will be doing handwork in the creative activities building in the afternoon. Be sure to say “hi”! (And a note to DayStitchers: We won’t be at the library Wednesday. Call me or another member if you don’t know the location.)
– Our refrigerator is dying a slow death. The repairman came out yesterday and gave us the bad news. It’s only ten years old *sniff*. Looking for a new fridge today.
-Photographing the wild flowers behind us has been so much fun. The “garden” changes from one time of day to another, and from one day to the next. Yesterday It had a real autumn feel to me all of a sudden. Some flowers are looking “done”, and there were hardly any insects. Photos in a later post…
-Yesterday was so hectic, I never did make my Design Wall Monday posting. I finished the Opal Harry Potter socks just in time to get them entered in the fair. The stripes turned out pretty well, they are the same size, and there are no holes in them!
This week I’ll pick out a new skein of sock yarn to start another pair, find the book our newly formed book club is reading this month, make my two blocks for my Farmer’s Wife Sampler, and I need to go downstairs and reacquaint myself with Elvis.
-In case you thought you heard wolves howling last night, did you see the moon?
-BONUS! I get to meet a fellow blogger today at the Mall of America, plus I’ll sneak in a side trip to IKEA.
