Last week in pictures

Bbq for eight! All three girls, our son-in-law, and my parents stayed for dinner. I love it when that happens. And it's even better when the weather is good enough for a bbq.

The floor is in, wiring done. Next: ceilings. It will be a finished room in a few weeks. Oh, my! This took so long, but it will be worth it.

Work, work, work. One day of bookkeeping and taxes (already told you how that affected my mood) and lots of editing. I love that last part. It's a new (free-lance) job for me, but it's slowly building up to a real income.

This part of the garden is always a mess. I try to keep up, but some of these plants are growing so fast that it needs some good detangling and cutting every once in while.

I was knitting a summer top, but it's not working out. I had an idea based on some other sweaters I made, but my measurements were off.

Although I'd love to spend more time in the garden, I did take some time to weed. It's actually looking quite good now. Hope to keep that up.

Started the next hat. I'm using a pattern, so that's kind of surprising. But I made this one before and I loved it, so I thought I'd make it again.
