Glimpse of My Life Early August

I am knitting the Ms. Marple Scarf, it is a fun piece and I can't wait to finish it. It is going to be a Christmas present.

My girls started back to school. Both of them are in high school now and I have to admit it is very hard. They are growing up way too fast. 

I was excited about gas being so low that I just had to snap a picture. 

On the first day of school to keep me occupied I did a little retail therapy at a local yarn shop. I am sorry to say that they are closing and Saturday was their last day.

I picked up some beautiful yarns from their sale and I have already cast on the milk chocolate skein. 

On Saturday I still needed a yarn fix so I took a trip to Revival Yarns. I love their little shop. The staff is super friendly and I love how bright the shop is. Their selection was wonderful.

Summer is winding down.

Monticello, GA
This summer has really seemed to fly by. Tomorrow both of my girls will be high school students. One in 10th and one in 9th. I really can't believe that this is happening. It seems like just yesterday they were babies.

I think that this summer has flew by because I have been filling in for someone on sick leave and my days have more of a routine. So for the month of July and for this month too I am working 3 days a week. I have really been trying to do things with the girls on my days off. We have spend time at the local library and going on little day trips to surrounding towns.

Madison, Ga
 We moved to a very small town last year and we have to drive about 30 min in any direction to get to a larger town, so we have been visiting a few of them when we can. I really love that we live in a small town but that it really doesn't take too long to get somewhere bigger.

We also made a trip to Atlanta for the day to visit the AmericasMart to look for new clients for my art licensing portfolio. I was able to come back with some new leads.

I just have to share this one. I walked out side the other morning and this is what I saw. The kitten Moe is the last of the litter and his mom has disappeared so Red has decided that he has to be the parent and take care of him. This happens a lot but I normally can't get a picture.

The Hitchhiker Scarf made with yarn I have had for a long time.
I also have been knitting like crazy. I am finding that it is helping me to get out of the creative rut that I have been in with my art. I have not felt like creating art at all over the past few weeks, but I really wanted to do something. So I picked up my needles and yarn and have been knitting everyday since.
