It's been a while since I have posted. Let me see, where to start?
These past two weeks I finished my 4th locker hook rug, the plum/purple and green one that I was going to use for my bathroom. Well, my bathroom is more lavender and olive, so I didn't like it for the bathroom, so I put it in front of my chest of drawers. Pretty soon I will have a totally carpeted house with locker rugs!
I bought the fabric to match the pillow/bedspread of my brother's, but haven't decided exactly what I want to design yet. For now I've been working on my wool hooking. It is so tedious, it took a while to get back into the rhythm after doing the locker hooking.
I have also made pretty good progress on my book. I have written two scenes and also done some editing. This is the second third of the book and I should be through the final "draft" pretty soon. Then I will start on the last third. I believe I might just get it finished and that will be super great.
At work things are going better than usual. I worked pretty hard reorganizing my office and the medical record room to make space for the new, much needed, cabinets they are buying. I am going to be off work Monday and Tuesday, but I think it will be nice to go back to my "new" office with my new clothes.
I tried to rent the cabins at our campsite but they are already reserved. My daughter had the idea of trying it in a tent but I'm afraid that wouldn't work too well with Renee'. But, I thought that we could put up the tent in my backyard which is pretty private and at the same time we would have all the luxuries of the house. Sharon said but we wouldn't be able to have a fire at night. So, today after I bought my clothes, I went to Lowe's and bought a "city" fire pit - I really like the one I got. I went by my parents' house and they have a fire pit type stove in their yard and dad has quite a lot of wood, so he gave me a few pieces to start with. Also, my yard is full of twigs and branches etc. When I got home, I put the fire pit together with Renee's help. I set it up on my patio. I hosed down the surrounding area just to be safe (silly me - almost hosed down my wood!). Renee' didn't want to come out because it was too cold she said. Since it's Saturday night, she did make popcorn, so I sat outside about 3 hours, had coffee, popcorn, and played my guitar a little bit.

PS: As I read back through this post, I realized that maybe I SHOULD post more often. I had more to say than I knew!
