Noggin, Noggin, who’s got a Noggin?

Well, this morning has been one with the grandgirls, punctuated by blasts of potty training accidents, Noggin on TV and On Demand, (for which I thank GOD!!!), a Saturday Happy Meal (McDonalds) treat and general messiness ’round the house. Never mind I’ve got two visits and some serious cleaning to do later. I started the morning early; their Dad starts his workday at 8:30 and has to drop them off to us a bit earlier. After showering and dressing, I walked downstairs to unlock and open the front door to be greeted with these lovely sights: It’s fun to watch things grow – even for the second and third times. The weather we’ve had this summer and a moderately decent amount of rain has made for a very lush summer here in Merlin – in fact, as I’ve said to my friend in the Northwest, it looks like we’ve switched weather patterns for a season! I do have to say, we’ve gotten to be more Merlin-esque in the past few weeks with the temperature topping the 90s (Fahrenheit!).
But I digress.
While awaiting an opportunity to get some visits done, I have been knitting on scarves I’ve already started – with the occasional row going toward the fauxcable blue scarf thingie [ravelry link] [other blog link] that travels with me and for the Checkerboard Lace Scarf by Whitney van Nes, that lovely free pattern for which I am using Jojoland Melody in a purpley-green colorway. I should be working on Brie’s Buttoney, Dori’s February Lady Sweater or at least on the blue sampler baby blankie “for Gunther” [not his real name!], but these are fun patterns.   I love the way the green runs into the purple and vice versa – and the stitch pattern, although 20 rows worth and not easily memorized, is really cool.  It’s a nice bit of play knitting,LOL:)  This makes about three or four scarves I have to finish by winter’s entrance on the scene.  I think I’ll live!
At least I hope so!
Tomorrow Dori is hosting a baby shower for K and S at our house, and I’ve got to get going on a visit or two, so until next time,
God be with you ’til we meet again!

Wife of one, mother of six, Grammy to eight (so far) and lawyer for many young persons, I love to sing, read, knit and walk. My politics are somewhat left of Marx and I want to hear what you think, too!
