This and That

A couple of days ago it was only 6C out side and we were all wondering if spring was ever coming to The Loops. Then the next day it jumped up to 15C and then to 20C today we have jumped right from spring into what is feeling like summer. It is about 37C right now, I think that puts it somewhere up in the 90'sF. It feels very hot to me, I think it came to quickly for my body to adjust to the heat.

The kids are having a great time today I put the sprinkler on under the trampoline and they jumped in the water for about an hour. Here they are warming up in the sun after their soak.

I even had to start up the airconditioner today, this took some doing. But I will make a long storey short. It was winterized and I had to uncover it and flip the power on and all that stuff. It sounds so simple doesn't it? It was simple, but somehow I managed to step on one of the screws I had to pull out of the cover. OUCH! It's a small thing, but it sure hurt.

The bottom of my foot is pretty sore. I have a softball game tonight, and the Wednesday run clinics start up again tomorrow. Feet are funny, a very small injury and you are limping like you broke your ankle. I have a 10 mile race on Sunday too!

Hey look: A pair of socks!

This is one of the gifts mom gave me for my birthday. I got very spoiled. Some beautiful sock yarn, a new sock book with so many patterns in it I would like to knit I don't know which one to try first, a set of bamboo dpn's and this:

It's called a yarntainer and it rocks. I carry a knitting project with me every where I go and this is perfect. As you can see I have two projects in it right now. It keeps everything neat and tidy and no more dropped stitches on my traveling project.

Shannon, your socks should be done just in time for summer! Nothing like some wool socks for a California summer.

Wool breathes and is very comfortable. Not quite as comfortable as bare feet. I think I recognize each of those little "bums". Process of elimination identifies the fourth.

I thought the same thing about the process of elimination for the fouth bum. How funny!

I like the naked butts too! I don't know what it is butt little kids have such cute butts.

The socks look great. I'm hoping to finish my first sock this week. We'll see.
