Humble Pie #Yarn Along

Knitting at the park.
Last week, I had greats hopes that my daughter's cardigan would be finished by this week... but, I only knit 4 rows since last week. Why? I prefer my sleep over knitting. My son was teething A LOT last week. If Charis and Justin nap at the same time, I think, "Hallelujah. Thank you God." Then, I nap myself. Plus, Drew gets home late, so I try to stay up and talk to him for at least a few minutes. Tiredness=Less productivity in knitting.

Currently {August 25, 2014}

Thinking about {or trying not to worry} the lease we plan on signing tomorrow. We found a slightly bigger apartment! It's less than two blocks away from our current place, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and is a month to month lease. One of our fears with finding another place was signing a year long lease, especially with Drew being so close to being finished with his PhD. We didn't want to sign something that would tie our hands into being hear over the next year, assuming Drew was able to find a full time job elsewear after being finished.

Funkins #Review #Giveaway



I hate being wasteful. At home, we use the cloth napkins that were given to us 5 years ago for as a wedding gift. They are well loved, but just plain boring blue. There are times I would love to use something brighter. Enter Funkins.

The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter #Knitting #YarnAlong

I finally feel like The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter is coming along. I usually get bored with the stockinette stitch, but since I'm only able to knit a few rows here and there, I don't find myself tiring of it like I usually do. I did not finish it for Charis's birthday like I wanted to, but I hope to have it cast off by next week.

Easy Crock Pot Tomato Sauce. We have SO many tomatoes from our CSA box. Fresh tomatoes are absolutely delicious, but Drew will only eat tomatoes after they've been cooked. I made this sauce yesterday in the crockpot, and it turned out delicious.
