Wow! We’ve been very busy. Eric is in the middle of his paternity leave, and we’ve been enjoying our staycation. We’ve planted our vegetable and herb gardens, built a fence, put together a steal of a swing set I found on kijiji, built a patio…. and now we’re moving onto our flower gardens. And, when I say we, I mean, Eric did most of it (his friend Jay helped for a few days, and I gave a hand when Maddy was sleeping). For the most part, Eric worked while Maddy supervised 😉
In that time we’ve also managed to relax, hit up a carnival, enjoy a girl’s spa/shopping day (thanks, Ange!), and enjoy a baby pool/BBQ evening with some friends.
We’re pretty sure this is our longest vacation EVER. We can thank Maddy for waking every day between 4:30-5:30am for giving us this long vacation – silver linings.
I haven’t been doing much sewing or knitting as I’ve been focusing on spending time with Eric – I just love having him home. But, every once in a while I have been practicing something new. When I learned to knit, I always knew I wanted to eventually try crocheting, but I kept knitting since I knew how to do it. When I made these pants I was forced to learn a basic crochet stitch. So since then…
I’ve learned a couple other stitches! Lots of mistakes in that pile, but I’m getting there.
