Sick Day Sunday

Bumpkins playing her drumset. I got these for her before she was even a year old. She has been playing them every day- drumsticks are wooden spoons. Wooden spoons are so versatile and can be used for everything.
Knitting: Have finished 4 inches of Bumpkins Tank top. Why is it considered a fast knit? I must be really slow at knitting. Have been looking for hair scrunchies as the time for those is fast approaching. No new work done on the quilt though- busy knitting and reading.

Today lots of laundry!! Thing 2 had 3 loads and DH, Bumpkins and myself had 5 loads plus the towels that were left over from yesterday's laundry. Last night Bumpkins generated A LOT of laundry. Nothing like getting thrown up on at 1:00 in the am, at least she did it in the bathroom and not in our bed. Today she is much better and I am sick. She slept in her crib from 2:00 until 5:30 this am and I slept on the concrete floor next to her bed. It was easier to grab her from there if she got sick again and i am way to old to be sleeping on hard concrete. My back was sore today, and I really tweaked it when I went to pick up Bumpkins.
Yeah!! Thing one and Two are working. They went in to work today- but tomorrow is a fish day. They were a day early. Thing Two called me to come pick him up and when I got there he was already gone. His reasoning was Thing One was going home so he got a ride w/him and he didn't know my cell number. On my way home after going over the bridge there was a baby moose bounding through the swamp toward the highway. So cute- but I was looking all over for the mama. Bad idea to get between mama and baby. Sorry I had no camera to take pix.

Dinner tonight: Chuck steaks marinated in soy and teriayaki cooked on the grill, mashed potatoes, and veggies.
Weather rainy, cloudy, sunny temps today went up to the 60's.

I hate it when people say something is a fast knit when it really takes you a long time...although, for me, to get the right gauge, I always need to go down like 4 needle sizes, so just a couple things that claim to be quick knit are really quick knit for me.

You are a brave woman to give a child a set of drums!!!! LOL
