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

Cleaning is Overrated!


We spent our weekend trying to get our house and yard ready for a graduation party next weekend.  My house is never all clean at the same time.  And it seems like there’s a pile of junk in every room that I don’t know what to do with.  Actually, the main problem is that I just don’t care if my house is perfect.

Here is how my mornings have begun since it finally decided to be summer in Minnesota.

Now that I’m at that “certain” age, I’m awake at about 6 AM.  I’ve always been a night person, and I’d love nothing more than to sleep until noon.  I’ve finally just embraced the early mornings by taking my coffee, knitting, and my sidekick and going outside.  It’s been cool enough that I’ve taken a blanket out with me a few mornings.  It’s very peaceful and a great way for a non-morning person to slowly become human!

It’s also time for this!!!

I love my cold press coffee in the summer.  Just add a little milk and some good creamer and it’s heaven in a glass over ice!

I couldn’t sit outside this morning because it was raining, so I did this instead:

I’ll try to get a glamour shot and details to you later this week.

I guess I’d better go tackle all those little piles around my house.

I’d rather knit!!!!
