Today I started off the day doing laundry.
Can you believe that a washing machine load costs only .50¢ to run?
Can you also believe that the dryer only costs .25¢ to run?
While waiting for the laundry, we hung out at my grandmother’s condo.
My sister unfortunately woke up really early this morning sick, so we knew that we’d be blowing off the beach today, unfortunately. I hope she feels better soon.
Sean got to speak to Jamie on the phone this morning and updated him on what we’ve been up to lately.
After getting off the phone was story time.
And then when the buzzer rang on the timer, Sean accompanied me for a walk to the laundry room.
We stopped and smelled the flowers.
(Well, not this one, as there was a bee in it).
After all the laundry was folded, and after lunch was finished, my mother & I took the boys out to run a few errands. We left my sister back at the condo with my grandmother this way Amy could rest and get better and my grandmother could finish up some stuff around the house that she wanted to get done.
We even made a trip to Costco. It’s great that my Canadian membership works here in the USA.
We needed to pick up a couple of things that my grandmother keeps in the house, that we’ve been using, so that she doesn’t run out. She doesn't have a car here, so she usually relies on her sister & her brother-in-law for lifts. This week she has our rental car, so we’ve been taking her to do things on her list.
I finished Mara!
Pattern: Mara Shawl by Madeleinetosh (My Ravelry Link)
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy in Happy Forest
Needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm
Size: 53" x 24"
Timeline: December 22, 2009 – January 20, 2010
Modifications: Followed pattern as written, but got different dimensions than described. I had more yarn than the pattern called for, but couldn’t get 4” out of the last part of the pattern, I was only able to get ?” and then had just enough yarn to bind off. The final measurements of the shawl are ?“x ?“.
Opinion: Love it!
Yep, I’m in love.
This evening we hung around my grandmother’s condo, my great-aunt & great-uncle came by for a bit, bringing the boys some gifts (a new puzzle & a book) and we had dinner here, and we watched some TV this evening. Amy & I sat down and watched tonight’s Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. Tonight was 2 really good episodes.
Not sure yet what is on tap for tomorrow, I guess we’ll see how the weather is when we get up in the morning.
