Our Third Week ~ 2014

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!

Linking with Tamar ...

Yes, the salad looks so yummy and fresh. I could use a few good men to wash my walls. LOL! How great is that?! Great job the the scarves.

Your scarf is quite lovely and that salad looks wonderful. From hunting to wall washing - those fellas are keepers.
