Another mostly quiet week happened here. The kids finally had a normal 5-day school week, with no delays or cancellations. Yay! I enjoyed some down time and spent several days in my yoga pants. Knitting or sorting through pictures.
I did get to do a quick head shot photo session on Tuesday morning after Bible study. A local author, who also attends Bible study, asked me if I could take some photos for her next book, which is due to come out this summer. I'm excited to have one of my photos on a book cover! And I'm looking forward to reading her books. I bought the first one from her and hope to get it read soon.
Anyway, here are a few photos from last week ...
You saw a sneak peek at the scarf I was knitting in this Scavenger Hunt post. Well, here is the finished product. It isn't perfect, but it's not too bad for a first time. I used big needles and a multicolored yarn so you wouldn't be able to see my mistakes. :)
Here is a macro shot of another scarf I knitted. It is a ruffle scarf made from the Sashay yarn. I am finding knitting to be quite enjoyable.
Lunch one day last week. A spinach base with veggies, chicken, raw almonds, and dried fruit. I topped it with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing. YUM!
Doug took Nick out for a little while to try out the new gun Nick got for Christmas.
On Saturday as I was cleaning up my office/craft space, I noticed my old, dead Gateway laptop still taking up space. So I decided it was time to say goodbye and send it off to the laptop cemetery. But, I wanted to make sure I had cleaned off the hard drive first so I tried firing it up and it worked! For a little while anyway. The boys enjoyed playing on abcya.com while it was working. It stopped working again after a few hours.
Doug decided to wash down the dining room walls on Saturday. I guess he didn't have anything better to do. I wanted to document this momentous occasion with a photograph. :)
Alex wanted to help his dad with the wall washing, so I gave him a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to work on the scuff marks. He did a great job!
On a completely unrelated note, this post is going up late in the day because I couldn't get Flickr to let me grab the html code for my photos. No matter what I tried. So I just uploaded them straight into my post. I'm not liking the new Flickr format. It must be time to find a different photo sharing site.
Thanks for stopping by to see what we've been up to! Make it a fabulous week!
