To Catch You Up

Wow, it's been a crazy few weeks! Where do I start?

Here! We went to our old stomping ground and had such a great time. Wee One met the ocean and seemed quite excited to be doing so. He played in the sand, swam in the ocean and splashed in the surf. He picked up shells and enjoyed finding sea water inside upside down clam shells. A yellow bucket and gray shovel were sadly lost at sea; we only hope wherever they washed up, they were found and used by another. I connected with some old friends too although it was brief (hi Felicia, hope you are enjoying lunch today!). We really do miss it there!

We also announced to family and friends another Wee One is going to be making his or her way to Knitsburgh. We are quite excited but at times I find myself tired and nauseous so I've been trying to rest more than usual.

The above two statements might explain why I have not been the most regular blogger of late. Secrecy (I didn't want to lead every burglar to the Estate door by blabbing how I was going out of town or posting while I was away, nor did I want to blow our cover until we told the fam about our new Wee) certainly played a role as well. I admit, I also have had little to no interest in knitting or crafting but I am hopeful once the nausea departs, I will be back to my usual crafty self.

So I leave you much where you had known me to be; in the midst of a damn near unending Every Way Wrap. There is only one way I want it and that is finished. I've been reading like some mad woman too and that definitely cuts into the knit. Three historical fiction novels by Sally Gunning (in reverse order of course, how like me...)and a fiction novel on Charlotte Bronte's life. We visited the library today and now I have three more books to divert my attention. At least I knit a bit on the wrap last night.

I do hope to get a fire under me soon as Compassionate Craft Week is coming up. I need to get my final project idea down (I have some vague thoughts on this already but need to shore them up a bit). I will try and keep you posted on this and hey, it you are crafting for this week too, I'll see you on Ravelry!

I hope that the nausea passes soon and you start to feeling better.
