WIP Wednesday

As I write this,  the sky here is grey and cold with the promise of snow in the forecast. Hubby is at work for the evening and Christian is napping so it is the perfect time to curl up with a good book and some knitting (a cup of hot chocolate isn’t going to hurt any either). I am linking up with Ginny’s Yarn Along. You can join me by clicking the yarn ball below!
Yarn AlongI recently started reading The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie after some good recommendations from some friends of mine. I am not far into it yet, but I like it so far! Flavia (the main character) is an eleven year old girl who is thrown into a mystery she is compelled to solve. I used to adore the Nancy Drew mysteries when I was younger and this book reminds me of that time.

My WIP is a shawl/scarf for my baby sister. It is called Hogwarts Express and I can’t wait to see her wear it! Hopefully I will be able to get it done before Christmas. She knows about it so it will not be a surprise, but the sooner I get it done, the sooner she will stop teasing me about working on everything but her scarf 🙂

 

My week :)

Hubby has been on vacation this week and it has been amazing so I had to share some photos from it. This is the first week long vacation that he has been able to take since C was born and I cannot tell you how much him and I both needed it! C has enjoyed having his daddy around all week too 🙂

We started off the week by taking an infant and child CPR class. Hubby had never taken it and it had been a while for me so it was definitely good to get the refresher.The only other event for the week was a trip down to Portland (which is a ways away from us so we don’t get to go down hardly ever). Other than that, we have just stayed pretty local and enjoyed reconnecting as a family.

Hubby’s parents are coming up next week since their new place up here is finally done!  You can see a picture of the moving company with the house being moved onto the lot. It will be so nice to have them close by when they stay up here.

All in all, this has been an incredibly relaxing and refreshing week. I plan to make the most of the last little while we have left by snuggling with my guys tonight and watching a movie. Happy weekend!
