This, That, There and here....

Oh my, feels like it has been a long time since I rambled your eyes off. So, well, I guess I should get at it.  Life is pretty full of Gwyn and rain. Today the sun is out so maybe we will venture out and enjoy some outside play. It is also gymnastic day so, will see how it all comes together. Last week I felt like a big meanie I didn't take Gwyn to Gymnastics as she was tired and cranky and only fell asleep 15 minutes before we would have had to leave. I didn't feel right about taking her and waking her up when she had been sooo tired!!! So, I let her sleep. She woke up a new girl in a couple hours!! Yay!  Aside from that life is pretty quiet. We had a play with Miss H. the other day. Gwyn loved it! I guess that was Wednesday.  Thursday we were off to an auction in Saskatoon. I had packed up everything for the day the night before. So we got up, dressed, ate and ran. We wanted to be early in case they were selling what we wanted earlier in the day. The auction started at 8 am I think. We got out of the house shortly after 7, maybe 7:20am. We were there at about 10:30. What we were there for was estimated to sell at 5pm. OH MY!!! So, we registered up. Took a look around. And went for lunch. We did a little business. James even let me go to Prairie Lily Knitting and Weaving shop. He stayed in the van with Gwyn. I went in and got some yarn fumes... LOL It is a wonderful shop. Helpful, friendly, and carry a little bit of everything! Was very nice space. So, I purchased a short cable needle for making, making of the fishy hats much easier!!! Yay!!!! no more stitches falling off the end of my dpns. When I get down to the needle being too long I can switch over to my dpns. Wonderful!!!

 I also picked up some yarn. I love it. It is soft and beautiful. I will be making something specific for a Christmas gift out of it. So that is all I can tell you.
I could not believe the drivers in Saskatoon..... all I will say is OH MY GAWDS! I don't remember them being so ignorant when we visited the south end of town when we were in Outlook doing bins. Them North enders are scary!  Now, I don't want to offend anyone... but people there are rude too!!! No thank yous for holding doors.. no returned smiles. I don't know if it was because the rain has got them all off their game or if they are just that bad!!! But, I am sick of the rain and I still smiled! James still held doors!! And don't even get me started on the Costco Parking Lot at NOON on a Friday!!!! The set up is nice, great idea, but when some idiot wants to wait for someone to load all their groceries, and 2, count them 2 car seat age children into a vehicle and hold up traffic while waiting..... It is not a pretty site. Good Grief....
Above is Anemie. I worked on it while in the van. To Saskatoon, around Saskatoon, while Gwyn napped at the auction sale, and some on the way home. I have one repeat of the border done.

I also have Juliet scarf on the needles yet. I just cast on another fish, last night.

And well.. The water in Margo is a lovely shade of orange right now. So, Yellow out on my load of whites almost fixed the damage. I need a new container of yellow out and some good water to try again.... So I washed Jeans. gah.. I so need to wash more.. but don't want to ruin my cloths!!! So Laundry waits. I am glad we don't drink that crap!!!  Don't even feel like doing my dishes in it really.. but I suppose I need to to them sometime....  So I am off...
Talk to you all later!!

Wow, you have so many projects to keep track of, I don't know how you do it. My head is spinning with the house projects at the moment I can't wait till I can sit down and scrap again.
