summer '08

Thursday, June 12, 2008

I have been trying to get over here. For days.

To tell you about how much fun my mother and I had at the TNNA last weekend. I have wanted to show you the most beautiful way to display yarn. About a new tweed yarn (classic elite portland tweed) that I am dying to get my hands on. I want to tell you about how excited I was when I met Sarah, my first blogger crush. And how Cozy was there signing her fantastic book.
I wanted to tell you about my favorite new recipe for pizza.
And the most refreshing way to drink water.
And about how I want to make strawberry jam.
And about all the dates I have planned with my sewing machine.
But for now. I really just want to tell you about how we are jumping for joy!
School is out, and Summer of 2008 has begun!

  23. It IS hard to adjust to the new schedule, isn't it? Eh - we'll figure it out soon enough, though, I'm sure. In the meantime, enough it!

  24. Summer is so good! I blissfully had today off from work, so I got all of the errands that are too annoying to do (or time consuming) on a work day, met the husband for lunch and had a small accident at the yarn shop.

    Good times had by all.
