It Feels Like Monday

After a Tuesday holiday here in the U.S., and quite a few people off on Monday which made for a long weekend, this day after the Fourth of July feels like the beginning of a new week.  I think I will be mixed up until this next weekend has gone by, and it is truly Monday.  Are you the same?

I don’t know what it’s like in other areas of the U.S. around July 4th, but here it’s like the wild west.  All weekend long, it was sooo noisy.  Monday night, July 4th eve, was the worst.  Things were being shot off to the north, south, east, and west of our house.  We even found a wooden stick from something in our front yard.  It was impossible to fall asleep until it all stopped around midnight.  Thank goodness it even stopped.  No worries, I was up at the crack of dawn.  Ugh!

So, no early morning parade this year, way too tired.  We did manage to go to the fireworks display at night though, and were glad we did.  For some reason they seemed more awe inspiring this year.

Today, I will get back work on this month’s ensembles.  Usually, I do one at a time, then pick what and who is next.  This month, I planned everything out.  I’m not a planner, so this is probably a one time occurrence.  It does seem more productive though.

Here’s a photo of everyone that will be getting new outfits this month.

You can see Lucy’s outfit has the most progress on it.  Her dress is sewn, but no hand sewing has been completed, or snaps sewn on.  Her sweater is blocked, and ready for embroidery.  Gina’s pink cardigan is the last to be knit; it has been started, and I’m about halfway finished with it.  The other four cardigans have been blocked and look much neater than they do in the photo.

I hope you all have a great day today.  Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting with me, dear friends.
