Sunday Musings

Sunday has arrived quite quickly and I just realized it’s already the middle of the month. While many of you are just starting your gardens and planting flowers, I am quite the opposite as the temperature are rising here in Phoenix.

At this time I really don’t have much left in my little garden that will be able to survive the summer heat, other than a handful of herbs (rosemary, sage, thyme and mint) and our peppers (jalapeño, poblano, mad hatter, bell pepper and snackable peppers). Yesterday I removed dying plants out a few of our large pots, added more soil and planted vincas in a variety of colors. I love vincas because them thrive in the heat of the summer and never stop blooming.

My joy this week has been taking Cody to the park, which is a daily routine, and capturing photos of him when I can. He gives me so much joy and he is by far the best co-worker I’ve ever had.

My hubby snapped the photo of him hiding behind the pillow on our bed. For some reason he likes to hide behind the pillows. Getting him to sit still for photos is challenging but so worth it to capture memories.

I am making great progress on my socks and now working on the foot of each one of them. At this rate I will be finished with this pair by the end of this week, which makes me quite happy.

I casted on a pair of vanilla cuff down socks using my stash of Patons Kroy in the color Blue Marl and decided to make them at the same time. One sock was started yesterday and the mate started this morning. My goal is to work on them alternately and have them finished around the same time. I’ve done this before and it has worked out great for me, and it helps with the notorious ”second sock syndrome” we sock knitters suffer from on occasion.

I think this summer I will do more of this and try to use up my stash of Patons Kroy, which is a favorite yarn of mine and I have at least 10 pairs worth of yarn I can use up. That would make me so happy and it would be awesome to start a second sock drawer too!

What are you working this week ?
