Pics of Summer Randomness

Just thought I would write and catch up on all the goings on around here.  Of course, this is on the eve of the day where we have lost both Farrah and Michael Jackson.  Quite a day.
The news around here is far less earth-shattering but is good.   June 13th, we hit a craft sale and had a good day as a family.  June 20th, we took kidlet swimming only to find out that she wasn’t all that interested in the water.  However, we ended up meeting my sister-in-law and her kids at the same lake where they had their jet-skis and we had a blast.  Kidlet got to go out on a raft and splash around with the family.  It was the best day we’ve had in awhile.
Despite the cold temperatures we had this spring our garden is doing well.  This is the first year we’ve planted in the raised beds after having built them in the fall:

Also, I’ve started making stitch markers:

I guess that’s all from here at the moment.  There is knitting to be done!

Is It Spring Yet?

It’s been awhile since my l ast post, but here is the update.  I’m still living at the gym and have dropped a total of 10 lbs. and a pant size so far.  Of course, I’m hoping to do more, but I guess there’s something called patience that I have to have as well.  Bah.
Otherwise, things have been quiet here.  Kidlet is doing amazingly and surprising us everyday with something new.  Today she sang an OAR song on the way to Day Care.  Who knew? 
Work has still been slow, but I keep focussing on the idea that I still have a job and I’m grateful for that.  Spring is just around the corner (hopefully) and that will mean better times.
I have a hauge case of Spring Fever.  I’m already talking to Hubby about scheduling things for Sept. (as we don’t get to have much of a life during summer with Camp.)  The vegetable garden is all planned out and the shopping list of supplies is made.  Sad, I know.
Oh, and I also think it’s terribly wrong that U2 drops a new album and no tour????????  REALLY??  THAT’S NOT RIGHT I TELL YOU…..Not right at all!!!!!!!
We got our Federal Tax money today, so I’ve been sorting through bills looking for things to pay off.  Wow, that’s odd…looking for bills to pay.  Hmmm….I think I need help. 
I’m sorry things aren’t more eventful at the moment, but winter’s tend to be that way around here.  I’m still up at 5:00 or 6:00a.m. headed to the gym most everyday.  Pain and yelling are now my 2 best friends….Yikes.
