I'm still here although there hasn't been much happening.  My Vermont company is still here and they are keeping me busy.  3 weeks down, 1 to go.  I'm exhausted from it.  I'm used to a quiet little life and although I love them it will be nice to get back to normal.   We have been eating well with all the fresh farm vegetables out.  I thought I'd share this, it's my favorite thing this time of year.  It's really only good when the veggies are new and fresh - baby potatoes, baby carrots, fresh peas........yummmm  
Unfortunately the fresh strawberries are almost gone but I made the most beautiful pie yesterday.  Just look at that lattice work!
No hooking has been done but lots of knitting.  Lately the needles are making me happy.  I'm trying some different dish cloth patterns  
Of course, quality inspected by Miss Abby .
Sorry I haven't been visiting blogs lately but I'll catch up soon.  I'm trying to limit my screen time.  I had a little eye accident and badly scratched my eyeball.  It's getting better but I find too much computer time gives me a headache since I still can't wear my contact lenses.

Running on empty

I try and keep the blog light and focus on the positive.  Lately I am finding it difficult to live up to the blog name "Glass half Full".    There is a little unpleasant family business going on. I won't get into it here.  Hopefully it ends soon and I can get back to normal   I'll post again soon when things lighten up

Rug update and weekend review

I don't know why they call them long weekends because they sure seem to fly by quickly.   I didn't get to hook very much but I did manage to get a picture and pull some wools to try for the rest.  Here is what is done so far 
Now I notice a leaf at the top I forgot to hook.  Oops.  So I don't know about the border yet but I'm thinking I might try these wools for the flowers.
They are not that bright in person.  Maybe I will try a bit when I finish this post.    Abby continues to love her new spot.  Here she is watching the Canada Day fireworks. (She was watching until she decided to pose for me)  She was fascinated, not at all scared 
Tonight I made a pan of cinnamon rolls to make going back to work tomorrow a little sweeter.  I have the hang of making them now
Now that my long weekend is over, my American friends are still enjoying one more day.  Happy 4th to you
