life and yarn lately

yarning lately

my #dailyknitsocks and some yarn I'm thinking of winding up to get a new sock cast on, have really missed sock knitting this last month. #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #socktawk #craftastherapy #manosdeluruguay

I cast on that fun pink yarn from the Flying Kettle, I bought it maybe two years ago, it may be my oldest sock stash yarn. I decided I would knit a pair of shorties for my first pair this year, I also thought I could whip them out pretty quickly but I am knitting pretty slow and only giving myself less than an hour a day to work on them. The slowness is hard but I’m getting used to it and I haven’t felt even a twinge of pain, so I think it will be something I need to stick to if I want to continue knitting socks.

About to turn the second heel finally. It's been hard to knit as slow as I have been, no pain makes it worth it though 😊 #knittersofinstagram #socktawk #operationsockdrawer #craftastherapy

I’ve also been working on my granny stripe blanket but it’s set aside for I don’t know how long… I have used up all of my scraps. The blanket has gotten to be a decent size but not big enough to use at all yet, I’m regretting the size I’m making a little right now. I thought about frogging it completely but I realize that’s a whole lot of crazy! (I think) I have mini skeins on the way to me right now and I’m knitting socks again, so at some point, it’ll get finished.

life things lately

Happy Valentines Day! ❤ kids got these freaking adorable cookies this year! Cookies are from @jessievirginia #happyvalentinesday

Valentine’s Day happened last week and I found these super fun cookies to give to my kids this year. They are just the cutest and they were super delicious too. I’m really happy to have found this decorator, I will be ordering from her many more times.

Hard to avoid any water on our walk to and from school now, this one was half way up my shins 😥😥 still enjoying the long almost 3km walks twice a day though but I will enjoy it more once it's dried out again

The weather has been getting really nice lately, so we’re walking to school now. I have been keeping track of the walks and I’m walking about 3km twice a day! My legs were not loving it at first but now I’m really enjoying it. The only problem with the good weather is all the melting that’s been happening and the puddles that come with that melting. There’s a lot of avoiding but sometimes you just can’t get around the puddles. This one I avoided one way but took my chances coming back only to find it went half way up my shins. It was not very fun! I’m really ready for everything to finally dry up around here.

Made our way to the game exhibit at WDM today, the oversized controllers were fun! #yxe #wdmsaskatoon

Just this weekend, we made our way to see a game exhibit at our museum and it was so much fun. There were a lot of older games to try out, along with some over-sized controllers to use. We all had a lot of fun, afterward we went through Boom Town, which is a little street with buildings to go inside. I can’t even count the number of times that I have been there, it’s my favorite place to visit. They have a small version of an Eaton house there now that is a lot of fun to see, it’s the same house that my dad grew up in and I lived in for a short amount of time as a kid too. It’s obviously shrunken down and they only have a few rooms to view but I find it cool to see there.

The kids have this week off of school now, so there will hopefully be lots of outside time if the weather keeps being a nice as it has. A library visit will have to be put in somewhere too!

thanks for stopping by today, have a great day!

The past weeks haven’t been the greatest around these parts. We have moved and that is great, the move went as well as it could with two kids down with the stomach flu. Made for an even more tiring day but we got through it and everyone is all healthy again thankfully.

You go out for an hour and he acts like you've been gone a week 😿 I don't mind how much he loves though 💓 #georgethecat #catsofinstagram

About a week before we moved, we gave up our cat George. It was a decision we fought against for months but ultimately it had to be done. My son has an allergy to cats, it was manageable and was only ever really an issue whenever he was sick but after last summer it became an issue for him all of the time. We decided that it was time for him to go before we moved so that our son could move into a place free of animal hair. I can honestly say that we really tried to make it work, though some days I don’t believe it. It has been really rough, George was very attached to me and I was to him as well, he was my constant shadow, my baby, I miss him like crazy.

I haven’t been able to write about this before now, I wanted to but every time I sat to do it, I would lose it. All the people who say “it’s just a cat” would laugh at how well I’ve taken losing him. Ugh. Crappy times. I know it was for the best and one day I will be able to say that without crying.
