My Monday

I hets cleanin' day!

After spending yesterday doing absolutely nothing, I decided today was cleaning day. It's probably going to be the hottest day of the year, but as I enter my last week of summer vacation I wanted to get the household chores done for the week. Poor Sophie has a hard time finding a place that's out of my way as she gives the eyes of doom to the vacuum cleaner.

As I was getting the clean sheets out of the linen closet I spotted this:

A new place to store yarn!

Speaking of storing yarn. I found these ginormous ziplock bags to keep my yarn in.

After finishing the upstairs I decided to hit the recycling bins at the nearby middle school, get some gas, and replenish myself with some tea.

There's nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than some B.M. sweet tea!!!

Did some cleaning downstairs and now am just feeding the washer and dryer when needed. Boy will I be glad when everything is done!


Saturday evening I got together with some knitting friends and had a yarn swap(with yarn from our stashes). Here was my contribution to the potluck:

It made a huge amount, the recipe says it serves 8-10 but I would say 15-18. It's a great salad to take to a potluck since it doesn't use mayo and it ages well (actually tastes better the next day!)

I came home from the party with some goodies:

Chris was a great hostess with the cutest puppy ever and even provided goodie bags. Mine contained some yarn sleeves, coil needle holders, and a crochet hook! I also went home with some Sockotta yarn in colors I adore! A great time was had by all and look forward to our next get together!

That salad looks delish! Bet it's nice in the heat too.

I'm not sure about that BM sweat tea. I came, I tried, I didn't like. :-P

The salad was delish. I agree, Chris was a lovely hostess.
