. . . crocheted this baby blanket for my step-daughter. Yep, you heard that right. Hubby's daughter (my step-daughter) is having a baby. This will be the first grandchild for the both of us. Sigh. She is due sometime in July. We don't hear from her very often. She came out to the homestead one time last summer. Communication from her is not the best.
Anyway, I love this diamond pattern, and so easy to make (as long as you are not in a hurry, as I was and ripped out over and over, which is uncommon for me). The pattern is online for free, and can be found here: Lacy Crochet
The humidity was so bad yesterday, that our bathroom tile had a layer of moisture so thick you could slip and fall. I had to put a fan on the floor to dry it out.
I did get out to the garden. I was dripping in sweat after just weeding the garlic. Needless to say, my garden work ended after that.
Then it poured down rain again, and again, and again.
It's very wet here today.
In between storms, we finally got the AC on. Last month the electric bill was $83.00. I am sure it will soar after this.
The potatoes are starting to produce blossoms, as well as my the green beans, and squash plants.
I haven't had a chance to replant my pie pumpkin seeds, so we may go without this year, or buy up at the Farmer's Markets.
Rain is expected again later tonight, so by the time the garden is dried up, it will pour down again. Rain is expected every day for the at least the next six days.
I'm glad Hubby and I did not pull the camper down to the campground Sunday and Monday. He wanted one last weekend of fun before returning to work. However, a pop-up camper is not conducive to expected 60mph winds in expected storms. Also, his one of his sisters ended up in ICU yesterday, while he was up taking our 15 year-old to Urgent Care. His one sister had to be sedated and a breathing tube placed in her throat (had choked on something and was not responding). As for our daughter, she got something in her eye which created an infection. What a crazy weekend.
