Where the heck have I been? It seems like the summer is always a busy time even though both of my businesses slow down a bit.
And the heat, my god the heat! (Can anyone place that quote?) I always seem to slow down once the really hot weather hits. Lately Maddie and I have been taking early (for us) morning walks before it gets too hot. Good exercise for both of us.
But I've also found some time for crafting. I've been working on a new craft -- rug hooking. I bought this kit last year at the Michigan Fiber Fest and haven't done a thing with it until last weekend. I have no idea what I'm doing as I've never taken a rug hooking class and I don't have a book on the subject. It seems to be going okay though. I think I really need one of those rug hooking frames -- doing this with a little embroidery hoop is very difficult.
But mostly I've been reading -- I'm trying to re-read all the HP books before the new one comes out. I've finished Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1), Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2) and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) (finished last night). I just started Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) but I don't have book 5 (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)! Must remember to order that today along with the new one -- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7). (Book 6 -- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is waiting in the wings -- by book 6 I was hooked and had to purchase the hardcover as soon as it came out!) Do you think I'll finish by July 21st?
