What Day Is It?

I'm no longer sure.

All of a sudden it is early August and I cannot, for the life of me, account for what happened between Memorial Day and now.

Lots of things going on in our household of late. My parents have moved. At the moment and for the next 4 weeks, they are living in our guest room. Their belongings are still en route from North Carolina. At this point the moving van must be in Tennessee.

We haven't packed much of our own things, really. Procrastination at its best! The latest plan is to see what we can unpack of my parents' stuff and and use their boxes.

Work is busy for me and Karl. He's going on another trip and I'm trying to keep up with all the "comms" demand from my team. It's amazing to me that a position like communications could be considered unimportant (lots of marketing and comms people were laid off last year in IT) and yet every where I turn I'm asked to be on someone's team or help them with a communications issue.

Karalyn is chugging along. My parents are completely enthralled with her, as you can imagine. They are also surprised at how active she is. At 15 months she only slows down for naps and bedtime. My parents are worried they can't keep up but I warn them they better prepare!

As for the knitting, it's everywhere and nowhere. I started Clapotis a few weeks ago and while I love knitting it, it's slow going. The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill Silk/Merino DK in Foxy Lady. At the same time I've been motivated by my husband's cousin Heidi to do a little felting. So I'm also knitting a smallish, mediumish bag using Paton's Soy Wool stuff. It has a soft, slightly fuzzy hand. Kind of like petting a dog.

All the news for right now. How's your summer coming along?
