Rainy Days and Tuesdays

Co-champions. Tony Thomas Family Karate Tigers were named co-champions on Friday. The only fitting end to what was an exciting season.

We are getting a very thorough soaking from TS Alberto. The temps have been in the 90's for days and it has been impossible to keep up with the plant watering. The slow steady rain has been a welcome relief today after the thunder boomers and flash flooding we had in town yesterday.(I guess too much relief. They just announced on the news that we are under a flood watch!)

The floors are down in the addition and the wall separating the house and the addition is coming down this week. I've already lost my blocking space due to the shuffling around of furniture. My knitting mojo is beginning to take a beating. The "Big Red Box" will arrive this week and I'm hoping that will give me incentive to complete the sleeve and right front of Rachel.

I'm not quite on the 28-day schedule for the River shawl. I've never been on a 28-day schedule without some assistance. Must have been my inner PMS making the schedule that day. Now that I've settled down with the pattern, the knitting is progressing smoothly. This is turning out to be an excellent pattern choice for the Flames Helen's Lace.

Things that make you go h-m-m-m. When I was younger my mom had a hard time getting us out of the rain. Today as I was making a super effort not to get wet even though I was parked on the carport, I busted my ass. Really just my right knee and my hand. Sometimes I need to be reminded that I am not Dixie Crystal.

Not a Dixie Crystal - I'm still laughing! Hope you're not hurting too much. It finally rained here, too, and it was beautiful sleeping weather here last night. Today is hot, hot, hot. Did I mention it was hot?

Honey, we are all Dixie Crystal! :)

We were very happy to get some rain. Everything was drying up here.
