Like A Butterfly πŸ¦‹

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

You’re probably wondering about the title of this post πŸ€”

Let me explain…that’s how I feel these days – like a butterfly flitting from task to task. Somehow I can’t sit still for any length of time. I’m always thinking about things I wanna/gotta do. And it’s never the one thing I’m doing right then and there. πŸ™ƒ

Do you know what I mean? Do you have times like that?

Things that did get done

-I did clean up baskets in my ‘Yarn-Room’. But only because the new winder called me in there. 😁

-I did go on a few walks this week. My friend Carole and I are taking advantage of the glorious weather – morning temperatures in the 40s is quite a change from last week, but we’re enjoying the sunshine that comes with it, and the fact that we’re not damp after one mile 😝

-Some yard work – The ‘Rose of Sharon’ bush that was out of control is no more. Normally I don’t like cutting down Flora that’s healthy and growing. But this bush didn’t seem to be doing too well. It was still green and growing, but the leaves were very small, and the buds wouldn’t open to all their glory. So the clippers came out…this is what’s left

It’s hard to believe that, just a few years ago, this was a spindly, little twig with a few short roots.

The trim should give it new life…we’ll see next year. 😊

While I was outside with my camera I noticed the sun hitting this beauty just right

Doesn’t it look like it’s glowing? 😍

We have the first red leaves in the yard! The Maple ‘volunteer’ in the flower pot wants to be the first one to announce that ‘Fall is here’ 🍁

The dogs enjoyed the time we spent outside πŸ’•

-Carpet steps are (finally) clean πŸ˜ƒ

Ever since we moved in I’ve had this problem with dingy steps, well – just the edges. Because our Lorelai (the white one ⬆️) is very low to the ground, so her belly gets a bit dirty walking around outside. It doesn’t help that she loves to lay down in the grass, pull herself forward, all around the yard πŸ˜†

Then she comes in, cleaning her belly on the steps 😝

I’ve tried every commercial product under the sun…nothing would get these edges clean. But now – thank you, Pinterest! – they’re clean…and it’s not the different lighting πŸ˜†

before

It’s a miracle! I’ll tell you what did it…

3/4 cup Hydrogen Peroxide

2 teaspoons baking soda

1squirt of Dawn

Mix it well, dab, then scrub, onto the stain. Done!

Happy Tina here! πŸ˜ƒ

-Crocheting

By the end of every day I kick back in front of the TV and add rows to ‘Georgia Mae’s Flower Patch’ 😍 Yes, the plan to make it a Crochet-Along is still solid. I’m taking pattern-notes, and hope to have Part I up by this weekend!

-I guess now I can add this blog-post to my list of things done 😁

I hope you are enjoying a sunny, creative, and beautiful day! πŸ’•

Last Week At A Glance πŸ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Funny story…funny, weird – you decide 😁

Two, three nights ago I dreamt about this very post. I dreamt the title, that I wrote it, the pictures were there. It was so vivid, that I honestly thought it was done.

And I was a little bit sad 😒 that no one liked it!

So today, while scrolling through all your wonderful posts, I wondered where my ‘Glance at last week’ disappeared to.

Well, you know the end of that story. πŸ˜†

So…without further ado – here it is (I hope πŸ˜‰)

Monday…

I finished writing the pattern for my next workshop. It’ll be a ‘Lacy Scarf’. I decided to introduce three different stitches that make a gorgeous lace pattern.

See…

Tuesday…

Michele (my partner in crime) and I met to set the date and talk about the details. We agreed on everything, so that was done fast 😁 and we got to enjoy our lunch while visiting with our friend Lili 😍

We forgot to take a picture…so I give you this. Just pretend it’s us πŸ˜†

Wednesday…

I decided I need new sneakers. That’s easier said than done…ugh! I must’ve tried on every pair in the store. A big shoutout to my friend Carole – she was very patient. 😊

Just as I was about to give up, I spotted a pair -in my size!!! – at the bottom of the clearance shelf. And they fit, and are very comfy! Score! 😎

One question remains though…why do all ‘Asics’ in 3 different sizes (6.5, 7, 7.5) fit the exact same way? Just a tad too small πŸ˜• It’s quite puzzling.

Then, of course…Lunch! πŸ˜† Good thing I only eat salads 😜

Thursday…

Just an ordinary day πŸ™‚ Dog walking, ‘breaking in the sneakers’ speed walking, and – no, not lunch 😁 – grocery shopping.

I finished the picot edging on the last sample scarf while watching the latest ‘ Garage Sale Mystery’. Those are so much fun! Do you watch?

The workshop flyer! I almost forgot to tell you about the flyer.

Here it is…

We have a few places in mind where we could distribute them…wish us luck 😊

Friday…

Started as a pretty normal day…until the kitchen sink clogged up. ☹️ Without warning- it just didn’t wanna anymore. Pffft

And nothing worked. We plunged, and poked the clog with wire. I even bent a wire hanger out of shape…nothing. Snake wouldn’t fit. Drano didn’t do diddlysquat.

Just as we were about to call someone, hubby poked it again…and there it went. Whatever it was – it’s gone.

I did get a little bit of crocheting done. I started to look into Freeform Crochet 😍

It is so much fun. Pretty perfect for yours truly! 😁 Last years Puzzle Poncho had a few elements in it, now I did a sampler of different Scrumbles

Very promising! Don’t you think?

Saturday…

…is Farmers Market Day! Michele has a table at one close by. She sells her son’s wonderful artisan breads, and had the great idea to make a little display for our workshop.

Looks great! Doesn’t it? I would wanna sign up 😁

Sunday…

After a yummy lunch at the Casino Buffet, hubby went to poker and I played with Freeform Designs 😍

I’m really loving it! ☺️

That’s all! Overall a pretty good week I’d say. πŸ’ƒπŸ»

I’m sending you Smiles πŸ™‚ Hugs πŸ€— and Love πŸ’— for a wonderful week!
