Wow! I've been away for so long. John told me that my blog was getting boring, and I needed to update. I couldn't agree more. It's always so hard to get back into blogging from a break because there's so much to say, and no quite the right way to say it.
I had a lovely trip in Florida. It was beautiful, sunny and warm everyday. We had lots of fun activities, including a new haircut for momma. I tell you, I feel like a brand new woman. The end of our vacation was a little stressful. Isaiah contracted croup two days before we were leaving and on his 2nd birthday nonetheless. So we had a night of no sleep, a visit to a new doctor in Florida, a shot, several medications, and a very tired (and sick) child and momma. We had an early flight on Friday morning and luckily we were both able to get a little sleep the night before. By the time we arrived home, I felt like I had run a marathon. Thankfully Isaiah had slept the entire plan ride and car ride home. I think I'm still catching up, but Isaiah is almost back to 100% (thank goodness).
Saturday morning, I met a blog friend for our first knitting class together. Stephanie and I had first met when she came to my craft fair. I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out and learning a new craft with her. What I am less excited about it having a new addiction. I've been knitting all week, practicing for our next class. I started out with a simple scarf (up at the top), but I need another ball of yarn. Since I've been admiring many fetching patterns out there in blog land, I decided that I needed to try it out for myself. Since I've never used double pointed needles, or done cables before, this is quite a challenge for me. I started the first one last night and finished it this afternoon. It is far from perfect, but I think it's pretty good for my first finished knitting project!
I may get started on the other one tonight. Or I may not. I'm starting to miss my sewing machine ;)
