7 PHFR Knit-Along Takes


Another crazy week with too many things to think about and do that keep me from thinking about blogging!  It takes me a few days to get back in the swing of things after camping (hello, can you say 'exhausting'?)  I suppose its the lack of sleep caused by a hiking/camping safety lesson followed by a night hike with talk of the native bobcats.  I'm sure the gnawed half of a deer legbone, 6 feet from my tent door, didn't affect my sleep at all.  Nor the unwashed bowl that had held a marinated pork tenderloin in the same vicinity (though I did get the non-dishwashing Boy Scout to remove said bowl to a more distant location!).  I'm not usually uptight when camping, but on this trip, everything added up to less sound sleep.

Cinnamon rolls in the dutch oven are a good way to start the day after a restless night!


Boy Scouts are good for teaching knots, even if they sometimes forget to do their dishes!


Trying to get a selfie at this boy's Honor's banquet last week.  Aren't we so cute?  I can't believe I will soon have a second college graduate!


The current yarn-along project is another ripple afghan in colors that coordinate with my kitchen curtain.

We (that's the Royal 'We', dontcha know) are still, slowly, savoring Pat Gohn's Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious.  If you haven't followed her blog tour, here's the schedule again.  Today's the last day and you may still have a chance to win a copy of her awesome book!

In honor of our AHG International Night, I found this lovely thistle pin.  Guess which country we have?


Consquently, we've spent a lot of time in the past couple of days making shortbread and bridies (meat pies).  Exhausting.  Today we used an assembly line and it went much better! 


And today's mish-mash of blog posts would be worthless without a birthday shout-out to my dearest husband.  You're awesome, and I don't know how I'd get along without you.  XOXO


and, last but not least, Ginny's Yarn Along!


  1. You take the high road and I'll take the low road..

  2. My husband is an Eagle Scout, now Cub Master. All those things in scouts do come in handy!

  3. I love that pic of the 3 of you!


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
