Back to Life
Back to reality… Remember that song? It’s always in my head when I come home from vacation, a little mantra to remind me that it’s time to get my butt in gear. But before I dive in to the work pile up, here’s just one more picture of little Tegue, who was definitely the hilight of my visit to Texas.
I crocheted him a ball while I was there because he was just so cute that I wanted to make something for him. I used some washable synthetic yarn (pretty shell pattern on one half and stripes on the other) and when I was about 3/4 done, I inserted a grocery bag (score one for recycling) which I filled with stuffing, tied up, and crocheted over completely. Now it makes that crinkly sound that babies love, prevents him from picking out the stuffing, and I *think* there is no way in hell that he can get the plastic out of there. However, as it should go without saying, never leave a baby unattended with any toy.
Texas was good. Super hot, but good. I don’t have much to report other than it was relaxing, and sometimes stressful, but overall a nice getaway. When we got off of the plan last night it was nice and cool and we could actually smell the pine trees all around us. It really is a bit of culture shock each time I leave and come back to Bozeman.
Anyway, I have a lot of catching up to do this week, and we’re moving to a new apartment next week, so I suspect that I won’t be posting much until August. I hope you all are having a wonderful summer.
