Well, J found a group trying to get a weekly pickup game of Ultimate Frisbee going. . . I'm happy for him. Sigh, just means he's going to be gone for a few more hours every week though. I'm glad he'll get his Ultimate fix though, he's been missing it since we moved.

On a happier note, we had a great drive yesterday, and though I'm not used to having a picnic in 90 degree heat at the top of a mountain, it was still fun. I love how excited S got about having a picnic. "Daddy, we need a blanket, right?"

Well, he's back and needs the computer, so that's all for today . . .

here we go!

Ok, so I decided to start a blog. Some days I just want to write it out and let it go, so to speak.

Like today. I just sent out a couple big swap boxes - both with handmade items that took a great deal of time and effort. They were received a couple days ago, but I haven't heard from either recipient. This makes me sad. Maybe I'm just expecting too much. I also haven't received packages from either of these swaps. One was supposed to ship a week ago. The other hasn't passed the ship date yet, so I'm not worried. I just want a package of yarny goodness in the mail already :)

The little one is sleeping (for a very long time today - hooray for playgroup!!) and I have had a few minutes to surf, am at the heels in the socks I'm making for a holiday gift, and I have already searched today in all the places I can think of to find a used spinning wheel. J is working (surprise - not!) and I'm just hanging out. It's weird, I'm not used to this much quiet time. I wish I had known it would be a long nap, I'd be off dyeing yarn for the next swap I'm doing!
