Wishcasting Wednesday

Today Jamie asks us, What belongings do you wish for?

Some of the landscaping that I have done so far this summer.

I would wish for more plants for my yard. Lately I have been doing some landscaping in the yard, and I have grown fond of my plants. I would like more flowering plants to bring some bees and humming birds to my yard. I would love to have my own little oasis in the city.

Some old metal patio furniture would be nice to have as well. That way I can have guest over and we can sit and enjoy my little oasis. Have a Barbecue/picnic if we would like. 

These are some belongings that I wish for myself.


Come see how much of a crazy cat lady I am!

Yesterday, Noah, Kara, and I went to go feed the ducks. It was a very toasty day, so I felt that my cat needed to come along and get some fresh air. When we got there a couple had their dog. Kara had to wait until they left. But once she got out the ducks moved away from Noah and I about 5 yards. Kara didn't want anything to do with them. She was content with lurking in the grass. There was also a family fishing off the bridge. They came over to pet her. Kara was putty in their hands. She did not want to leave.


I haven't been doing a whole lot of knitting/crocheting this week. The weather has been beautiful and I have been working on my landscaping project. It is finally starting to look very nice. I've been digging, dumping, and planting. I'm digging a trench to stand my bricks up in to divide the yard and add a little of visual excitement. I finally got about halfway and I still need many more bricks.

This is opposite the fist picture. I dumped about 600 pounds of red granite. I plan on getting some large border rock/brick to edge it. I don't want to have rocks all over the yard. I hope that these rocks kill most of what is under them.

There is a vine that has taken over the whole yard that needs to go. If anyone wants some Creeping Jenny, I'll give you a piece for FREE! It does bring in some bumble bees, so its not all bad. I would be fine with it if it were better contained.  Once I'm done with the yard I might even keep a vine of it. Until then it can be gone.


I am now knitting an afghan. The pattern is called  a Wedding Afghan. I hope to have it done in time for this fall. I have a reception for Noah's sister and I want to be able to give it to her and her husband. I am using brown and purple for the colors. Hopefully by the end of the week I can get a foot or so of it done.

Once I finish this one I have another that I want to have done in time for Christmas. Noah's father wants me to knit him one like I did for his grandson. I used the pattern that I usually use for dishcloths, start in the corner adding a stitch as you go. He wants it to be adult size. I think I'm going to make many squares and sew them together to be one big checkered blanket. Once I finish this blanket I think I'll retire for afghans for a while.
