Oscar is on vacation. I am SO glad. He really needs some time off, from work, and from here. He's headed up north, ostensibly for hunting, but the real goal is to get out into nature, away from everything . He will be visiting my Dad, in Gaylord (Michigan), a wonderfully peaceful place. He'll likely be the only person for acres, once he hikes out to his spot. (Dad has a lot of land there).
Today, I need to finish a second Jayne Cobb Hat. If the first one is too big, Chris can have the second one, either will do for Oscar. After making this second one, I think it will match as closely as I possibly can the images I found online HERE I learned what needed changing from the first one :-}
I have all but two items finished for Lynn. I will be shipping out all but one tomorrow or Monday (Oscar will drop them off)
Then there's the knitting for gifts and finishing Lynn's final item next week.
And writing. I didn't wake up with a fever today, if it stays away for a week, I may be able to get lots of writing done while Oscar is gone.
Sherri called. She adopted many of my plants when I had to give up gardening. TWO OF MY ROSES BLOOMED!!!!! In November! I think they like their new garden :-}
Time to go get cleaned up. We also need to go get some blood tests done, go shopping, and then out to dinner with Chris for the presentation of the Cunning Hat.
(image of hat to be done later.. for now, here are some pics from up north last spring, one of the roses, and a few stills of the Hat. )
