Earth Day!

Today is the 40th Earth Day. I went with my mother to Menards to get coco bean mulch for her gardens. For the past few weeks I've been planning on taking over one of her many gardens and planting vegetables. Today she gave me the okay to take over the big one in the backyard. While we were at Menards I bought my seeds and plant starter.  I am very excited to be able to start all of these little guys up. I have my peppers going in the plant starter right now, but they need to be in there for two months. I'll have to wait for tasty multi color peppers. 
Tomorrow when I am finished with work I am going to sow the rest of them. I have Chives, Squash, Beans, and Gourds my mother thinks that it would be cool to grow the gourds to make bird houses out of. I need to get some fence for the beans to grow on eventually, and maybe keep pests out.

I can't wait for fresh vegetables!

I started up again a little bit on my tie. I am at 20" out of 27" needed to be halfway completed. I really need to get cracking on it. I have a week to have it finished. I'm pretty sure I'll have it complete by Wednesday when I leave.


Today and Coming Soon

Today is my glorious day off from both jobs for the week. I am very excited that it is nice outside too. It is going to be a day of laundry maybe going to hang a bunch of it outside, a day of crocheting  I forgot that I have a birthday present to make, a day of sitting around doing a whole lot of nothing outside.

I can't wait for the end of the month. I'm going do to see the boyfriend again. I also have an Alumni Banquet for Delta Omicron. It was a ton of fun last year when it I was going alumni. Now that this year I AM alumni I hope it is even more fun! From What I saw on the Facebook party invite there are a few alumni that are either interested in going to the banquet or they are going. It is going to be AWESOME!


What's New?

I have put my blankey on the wayside for now. I need to finish my boyfriend's tie that he asked me to make for him in February. I'm guessing that I can have it done by the end of the month. It is the ugliest project that I've even been asked to make for anyone. Here is where I am taking the pattern from. I did find some different patterns with better looking ties on it but this is what he wanted. I have about two feet or so left to complete. I hope that he does wear it once I give it to him.

I have decided that I want to make pineapple coasters for one of my friends for their "housewarming/graduation" present. I need to find a pattern that I like and isn't too large. I'm thinking about making six of them in different colors. I have a bunch of cotton yarn to use. I just need to figure out how to adapt a pattern to coaster size.


Moving on up

I was offered a Full-time position at work the other day. I just needed to let the boyfriend know what was going on, since it kind of concerns him, since I am planning on moving in with him. With this news I might be moving a whole lot later then August. I am very happy that I have his support in my decision to take the position.

This week I haven't had anytime to work on my blanket. With the amount of work that I have done I would say that I have maybe 3 hours of work completed on it. I think since my last post I but in two or three stitches. I've been very busy with my jobs. I will have my next day off on Sunday. I am planning on getting half of my blanket completed then.



My afghan is going along nicely. I'm using much of my old "Dead Lady" yarn. I feel like it is going well. I just need to remember to not use yarn that doesn't feel soft. I went through one skein that was very itchy. So I've learned my lesson and I now using two yarns (blue and green) that are both fuzzy and fine (sock yarn?) What ever it is I am enjoying making a large project to get rid of all/most of my yarn collection. My boyfriend told me that it is so ugly that I don't have to worry about him taking it from me. I'm happy that it'll be all mine, maybe Kara's too.
