My name finally came up on the waiting list for Mason/Dixon Knitting, at the library! I am so glad because I just love this book. I knew it would be good but it is also just so nice to read and look through. I already tried my hand at log cabin knitting, something I had never seen before for some reason. Mine is a bit wonky but I am driven by the thought of it as the new bathroom mat. It'll be perfect.
It has been a busy morning in a really good way. I was up at 7 am ( never happens) to wait for our fix it guy who, unsurprisingly, never showed up. It was lucky I was awake though because my neighbor called to see if I would look after her almost 1 year old while she took her almost 3 year old to the doctor, last minute. Ofcourse I was more than happy to, secretly always hoping for a little baby fix anyway! I got to spend 2 lovely hours with her till her Auntie came to get her. We looked at all my silly toys ( I knew I kept them for some reason), considered the cats and had some blueberries and banana. It was a very nice change form my daily routine and I was so glad I was here to help.
In garden news, I was greeted by a jungle in the back dirt patch upon my return from holidays. Have a look at my proud zucchinni plant! I harvested my first one this morning and I am earmarking it for some fritters perhaps. It seems to thrive on no water at all, along with the nasturtiums and cosmos, which pleases me as I don't water as often as I should and it is rather dry here. Next will be my cherry tomatoes, who are just starting to ripen now.
These things and emailing some roughs, getting feedback on some other roughs, tidying up all the emails and I'd say it is time for some lunch! Here's to that nice mood when you feel you have accomplished a lot and feel proud about it. And here's to the nice little babies.
