Busy Summer and Catching Up on Knitting and Reading

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I have been well but busy! Last weekend I went to my sister's Bachelorette weekend getaway to Niagara-on-the-lake. We went to three wineries and did a tour and tastings. It was so nice to spend time with her and her friends. I have been busy with work too. There have been some changes moving desks and changing managers and it all takes me time to adjust. I am liking my new surroundings and getting used to it. I will be starting training this week on something new and I am looking forward to learning how to do more tasks and cross-training. I have finally joined a GoodLife gym near me and with that I also now have a personal trainer and I have been going to meet with him on Tuesdays and Thursdays for a couple of weeks now. He is super positive and encouraging and I am glad I signed on with him. I am already feeling stronger and leaner.  So with all of this going on, sadly knitting had been put on the back burner a bit.

I have been continuing on with knitting the ribbed fingerless mitts and had a chance to knit a lot when we were camping. I also knit a lot of it yesterday when I finally had some time to sit down, watch some YouTube vlogger's videos, and knit.

I still have to sew up the seams of the Wool and the Gang Farrah Billie Jean top. I am finished knitting the pieces, I just have to sew them together. It is just a matter of sitting down one day and doing it then I will be done. It is hard during the week now to find time after work so I might have to work on it a little each night.

I have been reading Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella. I am enjoying it so far and picked it up because I have always loved Sophie Kinsella's novels. I have read most of them and I am looking forward to reading more.

Thank you for visiting today! I will be posting more frequently again, once each week now that it is less busy!

Hope you have a great day and week ahead!
