Yarn Along

Here we are yarning along again with Ginny. I love seeing what everyone else is up to- go and take a peek.
I finished up the body of the Hobby Horse from last week and am just working on the ears now. I told Frank last night that I had halves of 2 ears done and he was like, "doesn't that mean you have one done?!??!" But I have both inner ears done and the outer ears left to do so technically not. They are easy and fairly quick to do it is just a matter of finding the time.

Along with knitting and trying to squeeze in a few moments of reading we are preparing for James' cowboy themed birthday party on Sunday. I can hardly believe my baby is going to be 2! Of course preparing for the party has been hindered by my little mishap in zumba on Monday night. I took a bad step and sprained my ankle pretty badly. The whole side of my foot is black and blue and swollen and it has definitely slowed me down! Monday night I just sat on the couch and cried it hurt so badly. Tuesday it felt a lot better so I was able to drag myself into town and to the Dr's who gave me the air cast which has helped tremendously. After getting the air cast I was able to run some errands but by the time I got home I was so darned tired I got exactly nothing done and went to bed. Today James had speech therapy and I have to work tonight and tomorrow so hopefully Friday and Saturday will be productive; otherwise I am in trouble! I'm hoping to finish the ears on the horse on my lunch breaks at work, then Friday I can felt it. and Sat put it together. I have everything I need to get it together I just need to finish the ears.

Needless to say I haven't had much time to read but I have been working my way through The Secret Garden. I love this book! It is one of my favorites. I also read some more Nora Roberts b/c it is so easy tp just pick up and put down.

I'll leave you with a photo from James' speech therapy this morning. It's nice to know that my kids (even my one year old) love to read as much as I do!

"What Mommy? I'm Reading!!!!"

Such a cutie!

I can't wait to see the horse when it's done. What a great idea.

Hope your ankle feels better soon!
