Granny Square CAL

I started my Granny Square CAL.  Here are some of the rounds:

Sorry, it is a bit fuzzy.  I am using up scraps of Caron Simply Soft.  I love this yarn.  It is silky looking, has wonderful colors, and works up nice. 

Here is a picture of three rounds.  I worked these to check the gauge.  I crochet kind of tight, so I usually have to use a hook size bigger than what it calls for.  I am using a metal G hook.

I love chocolate brown.  I am not a big black fan.  So I was thrilled to find this gorgeous brown from Caron Simply Soft. 

We are hoping to have Bri's bunk beds/dresser combo delivered and set up on Saturday.  Rooster is hoping to have Saturday off so he can bring our bedroom set to the apartment.  We are hoping to be in the apartment fully this weekend.  Wouldn't you know, it is suppose to rain all weekend.  LOL  Hopefully, he will be off on Labor Day too.

Have a wonderful day.

In the middle of moving!

We are starting to get things moved into the new apartment.  The big stuff will have to wait until Rooster has a day off. 

I am very pleased with the apartment.  I have never lived in an apartment before.  It is a two bedroom, two bath 1000 sq ft apartment.  I only thing that I don't like is the kitchen is tiny and has no pantry.  But our walk in closet is so big, that I might put a plastic shelf unit in that to hold can goods and such. 

Bri loves her room and smaller walk in closet.  To her it is an extra playroom.  LOL  She is waiting to be able to swim in the pool.  They have a nice pool.  Plus we are right on the water and she can fish off the docks.  

 This is the view of the pool and the dock area.  I am very happy with it.  It is about the same drive time to take Rooster to work as where we are now, but it is a straight drive. 

I am so happy to be on our own.  I am very grateful to my SIL letting us stay with her.  But it was time to move on.

God Bless and have a wonderful day.

Things are changing!!

I started a new blog.  It is going to be all homeschooling.  You can visit it here:  http://www.morganicinstitute.blogspot.com    I am keeping this blog for regular life and stitching.

Also we are most likely moving.  We found a really nice two bedroom, two bath apartment that is much closer to George's work.  This getting up at 4:30 is killing me.  LOL  So now I will be able to sleep in until 5:00.  LOL  I will know more about it after the weekend.  It has a nice pool, playground, fitness room, and activities center.  They have after school programs, so Bri can go do a project while I visit the fitness room.  Maybe I can lose that 50 lbs that I want too???  I am sure that the pool will help.  Bri can't wait.  I have never lived in an apartment, so it will be strange for me.  But the one that we got to look at is really nice. 

Wish us luck.  God Bless and have a wonderful day!
