I finally finished my Socks for Soldiers legs this morning (the legs were knit by another woman and I turned the heel and did the feet). A size 12 mens foot is a lot of knitting!! But definately worth it for the cause... These will be washed tonight, then sent to Oklahoma to be dyed black, then sent to Ohio to be put in a box to go to Iraq or Afghanistan. It feels really good having comleted something with so little time to knit lately!!
Then there was this wonderful package that came in the mail yesterday from Jana - my coffee swap pal! She made the anklet - which fits perfectly!! And sent me this beautiful CD - which you can't tell, but it is in my stereo - mr.sunneshine and I listened to it during dinner last night. Thank Jana!!
Things are getting crazy around here with sidewalk sale coming up :) Lots more work then play - but it really is all worth it in the end! I have been lurking around blogs - but there hasn't been much commenting - as soon as things settle down, I will be back to my normal opinionated self - just bear with me a bit!!

We made a surprise trip to Omaha to surprise my MIL on her 77th birthday. It was the first time ever that she had had all four of her boys, their wives, kids, grandkids and great-grandkids together in one place. Thankfully, we did not give her a heart attack! And she really was thrilled. A month after we all had our plane tickets, MIL was diagnosed with breast cancer, so it really was nice to get to see her and give her support before she starts treatment. (Prognosis is good, but we are still sending lots of thoughts and prayers her way.) Mr.sunneshine and I got to spend two days with our grandson, who is darling and really mellow for a two year old! (And I am thinking that there may be a cabled cardigan sweater under the christmas tree for the wee one...) Enjoy photos of the little one and his window and door fetish - open, close, open, peak-a-boo, close, open, close....
And true story, while we were there a cattle truck overturned and the freeway was closed for over two hours while they were rounding up errant cattle - hehehee! Only in Nebraska!
I finished one set of my SFS socks, and am closing in on the second set - yippee!! There will be knitting photos soon....

Things here have been quite crazy and there really hasn't been much knitting. (Sorry to my VVSwap pal!!) So I haven't had much to post. Plus, between working retail during sale season and trying to have a social life - there is very little time left in the day...
We are leaving for a two day jaunt for a surprise on Monday - since there is plane time, I should have some knitting to show from that!! And there should be photos, too!!
Here is the best picture from our July 4th bar-b-que. This is Sophie Miles (and my cell phone which came out amazingly unscathed). Isn't she cute??
