The First Annual Gal's Backpacking Trip!

Everyone made it through with flying colors (and one with a slight fever!) Hope your Memorial Day rocked as hard as these here ladies!

These Boots are Made for Stompin'!

I hosted our Women's Group meeting this month (along with all the other craziness going on around here). And, because I'm a geek, we had a guest instructor and commemorative tee shirts. The tee shirt graphic was done by Christopher Baldwin of Little Dee fame. He graciously donated his time and talent to what he deemed a worthy cause. Yay Christopher!

Our guest self defense instructor, Kelly, was awesome, and also donated her time. She even managed to drag a buddy along with her. Thanks Kelly and Michelle y'all rock (and kick, and punch...)!

And aside from that of course we have to give a double yay to my but kickin' women's group! Woot woot!

Just Keep Swimming...

So some of y'all have been kind enough to inquire as to the status of the house remodel. Try to bear in mind that the place will look much better without the thin veneer of power- and hand tools, and also those pesky dangling fixture-less electrical wires. First the heart of the house, the kitchen/dining space, with double doors onto the "courtyard"...
Could be nice soon, huh?

Then the wee guest room that will soon house my favorite sibling and family...
Tiny, but nice!

Then a quick glimpse at the loo...

Supposedly the tile artist will have this whipped into jaw dropping shape in two short weeks! (Watch the knees while on that imaginary potty, the door will definitely clip them if someone comes barging in!

And still in the works (perhaps in time for 90 degree weather?) The Hubsand's wool cabled sweater! Remember when I surveyed y'all as to the fate of this handknit? Well, much like the Million Dollar Man ("We can rebuild him - we have the technology!) it has been restructured for the betterment of mankind. AKA, made bigger and knit in the round (front and back at the same time).

Even Tankster agrees, "It's wool, but it sure isn't itchy!"

Now all we gotta do is keep on keeping on!
