Well, blog fans...

I let this get past me for a couple of weeks, eh?

We did not win the screenwriting competition but we are happy (as we can be) with making the Finals this time. We will try again, albeit with a different script I expect. Thanks to all for your good wishes!

We are, however, all healthy and doing well in our various pursuits. DD is working on Honor Roll and only needs to make up a little ground in PE. DS is thriving in his class and worked very hard on his Book Report Diorama with his dad this weekend, yay! Almost done!

Said dad is getting over a cold and today is our wedding anniversary (12) so soon we will manage to go see "The Social Network" but not tonight. I do love me some Aaron Sorkin!

I finished my orange sweater and am knitting on the green laceweight one again, but considering another gift, about a million sweaters that would be quicker and finishing the two in-progress-for-years sweaters that lurk around here. Should have a modeled photo this week but here it is blocking: Garter Yoke blocking

This is DH's favorite so far!

This week: big push to finish Girl scout film editing and get ready for our Halloween Carnival at work and help with 4th Grade Play preparations. Costumes for Halloween are well under way, thank goodness and thanks to friend J who snagged me an "Alice" from work, thanks J!!

Spent some time at a local Mosque this afternoon where both the fellowship and the food were warm and wonderful. Great thanks to the Islamic Center of Glendale for the lovely hospitality!

Feeling a bit better

I had a dentist appointment on Monday that just threw me for a loop. Too long, too everything. I'm feeling better today, though, and should be okay going to work and such.

Started in on finishing the orange sweater sleeve, that should be done by the end of the week unless I decide to do a stealth super speed project by Sunday. Which I will probably decide to do, but we'll see how I feel about spinning after the kids go to school today. If I don't spin the yarn, the project will never get off the ground!

DS got a 100 on his Science Test, yay! Congratulations, buddy!

A quiet weekend, finally!

I thought I had a baby shower this weekend (got the date wrong) so I have very little going on. Taking scout troop to the mall to hang out, posting photos from the Fair, I will have to practice my music for tomorrow when we get back, but that's no biggie.

Baby shower gift, finished (since I thought it was today), all they needed was the ribbons:
Baby sweaters for Maitreya

The first one came out a little big, so I made another smaller one, so cute!

I managed to spin some yarn this week, but it's not dry enough to take a photo. I did finish the pair of socks that has been languishing in my purse since the spring before camp, though:

Silk Garden Sock stripes #2

Look, photos!

And the kids at the Fair:

We had a great time this year, thanks DH!! Worth a day off school, but it's hard to get back into the routine after an exhausting Wednesday!

Off to the mall!
