Let's take a break from the travelogue, shall we?
I started a new knitting project on Friday night: a wee hat on DPNs. Somehow, I lost a needle while casting on, and then a second went missing. I searched around and under my chair & ottoman, and then had a look "inside" my chair. Gah! Right off the bat, I spotted a couple of crayons and stitch markers, some food (a veggie straw, an M&M, some nuts), and a DPN -- a bigger one that I didn't even know was missing!!
Hungry, Hungry Recliner
I decided that one of my Saturday projects would be pulling that chair apart to clean and reclaim some of that stuff!
I turned it over on its side, and ended up propping it up on a box for ease of access. I pulled out a bunch of staples along the edge and, handily, found that a couple of super-size paperclips had also fallen in there, so I used them to hold back the fabric while I then wiggled & shook everything out!
I almost dislocated a shoulder! It's a heavy chair.
There's the "good stuff"! Haha. (I found the other missing DPN under a nearby chest.)
The kiddos were over for a while on Saturday, too.
Gin is walking as if she's been doing it for weeks! She toddled in carrying my bike helmet.
She was suffering a case of the summertime sniffles and/or teething... and took the rare (short) nap at Nona's house!
Maddy ran in & out again yesterday -- she's "home," but she's been very busy reconnecting & visiting with friends, so I haven't seen her much. A little downtime is forthcoming...
What else? It was a fairly low-key weekend at home -- kids & grandkids in & out, some knitting, some cleaning out & organizing, and a new sewing project cut out.
How about you? How was your weekend??
