Well, it has been quite a week around here. The Jersey Shore has been slammed with thunderstorms and extreme rain the past few days. We have had more rain in a short amount of time than I can remember! And the lightning and thunder! We were the unfortunate people that were hit by lightning.
Yes. I said it. HIT BY LIGHTNING! Ok...maybe not direct hit, but VERY CLOSE!
It hit my parent's sprinkler system (it's attached to their house) and blew it up across the yard and in the same strike we lost all power, a blown up lightbulb, killed tvs, satellite, internet. My parents lost a tv in the process too. SCARY! But thankfully we are all ok and the houses are ok.
The computers were all safe. THANK GOODNESS!!!! I need my computer for work and I have so much info an photos on here. Makes me realize that I REALLY need to back this thing up!
Wow...I'm using a lot of all caps. Sorry.
Ok....so anyway....it's yarn along day.
And thanks to the nice Verizon repair man that visited this morning, I now have a new functioning modem and back with the online world. So I can share in the yarn along fun with everyone else.
I finished another Outlander Cowl. I used gray alpaca yarn from the Coop.
And new knitting. Using the remainder of the gray skein, I casted on the Standing Stones Cowl.
My dear friend and her son will be moving to Germany in a few weeks for work and she'll live there for 3 years. So, of course I needed to make them some knitted gear to remind them of home and keep them nice and toasty.
I also enjoyed listening to the podcast of an interview with Jared Flood. I really enjoyed hearing the process of dyeing the fiber and his painting major background. Gotta love other art school peeps.
Fresh flowers that Chase and I collected from the farm this week. In a small pottery vase that I think Lizzie made in college.
Still working on this book...........just not loving it. But many of you have said to keep going. So I am :) I am not giving up....yet.
Wishing everyone a good week. Join in the fun over at Ginny's Blog for more yarn alongers.
