Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

30 Minutes


That’s how long I was dressed today. The rest of the day, I stayed in my pajamas. I only got dressed because Kid 3 had worked hard and earned a new X-Box 360 game. Oh, and I needed chocolate and laundry detergent.

Our back yard is gorgeous as was the weather today.  My flowers are really taking off.   This photo is on the desktop of my computer.

I love the way the light glows through the petals of the flowers.

I’m going to make a list of things I could blog about next week. I was going do a longer post, but the battery on my camera is dead. It could never figure out why people have that problem so often. I have a spare battery and always keep it charged. Until this week.

So here’s the list:

1. Kids first pool day of the summer.

2. Laundry room. The price I paid for knitting too much lace.

3. New yarn that’s been showing up.

4. New lace project (with beads) that I started last night.

5. Two color quilt challenge that I’m going to work on this week.

6. A beautifully prepared dinner that I’m making this week?!?

7. Lace projects for Seasons of Lace.

8.  A plea for ideas to keep 5 kids busy this summer.

9.  A plea for ideas to keep the mom of 5 kids sane this summer.

10. Lap by lap details of the Nascar Race. Just kidding!

I’m off to bed.  That should be easy since I still have my pajamas on.
