Playing Catch Up

I haven't posted in so long that I never shared with you all the fun I had at Casa de Swine. The entire family went on the Sunday before Labor Day dragging along Titi Bel for the ride, not that she minded in the least.

The company was excellent as always.

There was time in the pool:

There were sports played:

There were smores smored:

...and gifts given:

I hadn't seen Kathleen since my birthday so she had my presents. The Smooshy is just as cuddly as it's name implies. The bag is adorable but man oh man do I love my shawl pin. So very pretty:

A good time was had by all.

This is where I am on the toe up two at a time socks:
I think in the long run I'll like this method simply because when it's done it's done. No second sock syndrome and no kitchener to deal with but the start is interminably slow and boring for me. I have to pay a little too much attention since I have to do an increase round every other round but it's not really challenging enough to keep me engaged either so I don't tend to pick it up. It will get better when I get to the foot...I hope.

On Wednesday I will pour out all my High School angst on you. Not my High School angst but my angst about Avery's High School choices.

Try to have a good day, even though it's Monday.
