Secret Pal post.....

Okay...I haven't died or anything but have been busy with my new job. I am a bookkeeper at a local grain elevator. So I am learning new things and remember how to do old things. I have trying to do some knitting from the new book that my secret pal sent me. I started the baby kimono but haven't gotten too far with it. I am doing it in a lilac Lion brand cotton. It is for my new great niece. I just have to get it done soon.

I know that my secret pal is out of the country for the a while but I know she will be back soon. I am trying to figure out some things to get for my secret pal. Too many choices...but will just have to choose something.

Talk to you all soon. I have a retreat this weekend my first time to go away by self. It should be interesting.

Lots of Things.....

These are some of things I made for a craft fair this last weekend. These were fun and easy to make. I only sold two paper bag books and 3 cards but it was fun though. I think I will put some things on ebay and see how they do there.

Let's see what else is new in my life.....

I got a job as a bookkeeper at our local grain elevator so I will be able to use my education as an accountant and learn some new things too. I am looking forward to it but also a little anxious about going back to work after 4 years off.

Seth is doing really well with the potty training. I think we might be close to real underpants. He knows that life is changing but he doesn't know how though. Autumn will watch him until just before school starts so hopefully, the transition will be easier for him. He will also start preschool this fall too. Lots of changes for him.

Thank you Secret pal. I got my book....Mason Dixon knitting. I am already knitting the baby kimono. My niece is having another baby so it will be for her. I love so many things in this book. I can't wait to make the dishcloths and other things too.

Happy Fourth of July!!! We have had a long weekend of various events here and tomorrow is the culmination of everything. We will go to the parade and have a barbeque with some friends. Then fireworks at night.

Then I have to get up for work in the morning. Wish me luck.....
