Rain, rain go away…

12 Apr

Where is the beautiful weather and sunshine?  Here in NJ, it’s been stormy with a whole lot of left over rain (read yesterdays post for some exciting lightning information).  My mother actually called me and asked me why I have been home for so long and wanted to make sure everything was alright.  Apparently, I am always on the go and so when my mom stalks me using the “find friends” app, she gets worried easily.  LOL  silly mommy.

I bought new US4 DPNs today to finish that stupid self striping baby sweater.  I had all of SIX rows left on the sleeve when my stupid clover bamboo needle broke.  (this is where I am still cursing out loud at this situation).  Maybe, just maybe, this is why I have felt so blah about knitting the last week.  I realize that when I have run out of wool or had to stop a project previously before it was finished, for whatever reason, I lose my momentum to continue on.

The last week has been great for our family, with all of the sunshine and beautiful weather, we have been cleaning and purging our home and garage.  I have officially gone through every container of baby clothes (there were seven, very large rubbermaid totes) and donated about four or five trash bags of clothes to goodwill and sold quite a few on an onilne yardsale site on FB and the two big overstuffed bins I have left of clothes, I will be dividing up and giving them to my two girlfriends (pending the gender reveal for one).  We’ve taken quite a few good walks to the library, sometimes, twice a day (my son rides his scooter and we walk behind him) and even gone out for a nice quick walk before bed, up and down our street.  I must say, that night walk was the first time I can really remember holding my hubbys hand in a few weeks probably.


What are you doing to enjoy the weather in your area of the world??
