ON PINS AND NEEDLES

I am feeling anxious today.  My DD had an interview at a law firm yesterday for an office services job — and is waiting to hear back today.  It would be a perfect job while she is in college.

I have had little knitting time lately — I hope to remedy that over the weekend — although my yard is desperately calling to me for attention.  My plan is to get out in the yard early Saturday morning.  I need to weed, cut back iris, hoe the herb and vegetable areas, pick basil, and cut back the thornless blackberry bush. My green beans are finished — the 100+ temps last week did them in.  But we had several batches for dinners — there’s nothing like fresh from the garden veggies!  I picked two large tomatoes.  We had bacon and tomato sandwiches last night and I am finishing off one tomato today at lunch with some cottage cheese.  I will use the other for pasta — I like to cook pasta and add in fresh chopped tomato, pesto, and fresh mushrooms.  Yum!

I downloaded the State Fair booklet and entry forms this morning.  I am thinking of entering this year — after a hiatus of two years.  I have a Diamond Seed Stitch Baby Jacket from Interweave Knits, a Branching Out scarf, and a pair of Embossed Leaves socks that would be good entries.

DD leaves early tomorrow morning with a group from church to attend the Desperation Conference at New Life Church in Colorado Springs.  I went last summer as a youth sponsor and it is an awesome experience. 

The band is leading worship Saturday evening over at Aldersgate UMC — we have been doing this once a month — it is good experience.  And then we are leading worship at Asbury for the 9:15 service and then I am also playing bass with the praise team for the 10:45 service.  Double duty this weekend — but I love it.

I just finished reading Intuition by Allegra Goodman and found it to be excellent.  I am currently reading two books — Cure for a Common Life by Max Lucado and Terrorist by John Updike.  I try to read something spiritual at the same time I am reading other things.

On the knitting front, I hope to finish a couple of BallBand Dishcloths this weekend that I need for gifts and I should get the multicolor rib scarf done — the young man’s birthday is coming up on August 22.  It would be nice to have it finished — I only have 3 more 8 inch stripes to do.  And I need to get back to the Devan baby sweater.
