I'm so excited!!

I just can't hide it... everyone - sing along!!

I am so excited!! My sweet thing daughter #1 is coming home!!! She's bringing her chefiance' home with her - and they'll be staying the week! It's been a while since we've seen them and I miss her horribly. We'll be doing a bridal shower for her and the RSVP's are trickling in.

I have to wonder - do people even RSVP anymore? Most people believe that the RSVP does not apply to them - it's for other people - because really now - "you knew I was coming. How could you think I wasn't? I didn't need to RSVP!" People! Please, please, please - let me know if you are or are not coming!

D#1 wants to go to her favorite mexican food place for her b-day which is the same day as Father's day. Works out well - since it's my dad's favorite place also! Runs in the family, I guess... She complains that the only mexican food on the island is Taco Bell - which we all know is NOT mexican food - but something else. When you can buy food that cheap - is it even really food?

On the knitting side - I'm making progress on the Dropped Stitch Tank for the Fitted Knits Along. I'm to the point of splitting to top of the front, and I haven't been knitting that much on it. It's a super quick knit - but I need to be more disciplined about spending more time on it. I did start making the top down bonnet from Hello Yarn. In fact, it's the first time I've used the figure 8 cast on and now I know I can make socks from the toe up!!! Funny how you think "that's just too hard... or too time consuming" and then you learn a new technique - it's really much easier than you thought... come on - if you can figure out how to knit you can certainly figure out how to do everything else that goes along with knitting! So anyhow - I made the bonnet for a newborn and decided it was just to small - not for a newborn, of course. But for a baby! I want my hand knitted gift to get ALOT of wear out of it!!! So - I took it all out and cast on again but this time - for a baby. I swear - I will not rip it out and make it for a child.. it would be tooo many years before the baby could wear it and then - the parents, if they are anything like me - would lose it and it would never get worn!!

I'm also knitting a shawl - I think it's called the mermaid shawl - I got the pattern at Babetta's. Only the best yarn store in town!! The shawl is pretty mindless knitting - but I need something for when the office gets cold.

And I need to finish up the tank I'm doing for D#2. I'm such an ADD knitter though - and I love planning new projects. (read: buying new yarn!)

The one thing I am not excited about is this HEAT!!!! It's way toooo hot here - yuck!!

Verse for the day: You were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's. 1 Corinthians 6:20
