House blocks and a scarf
I finished my infinity scarf just as the weather reached a scorching 104 degrees. I guess I won't be wearing it any time soon. I ripped back the pattern I started here and switched to this one instead.
It's was so easy to crochet, you know the meditative kind where you repeat row 2 and 3 until you run out of yarn or fall asleep with the hook in your hand. Now I'm looking around for the next crochet project.
The last picture is a female Bullock's Oriole getting ready to take a dip. Can you see her on the edge of the bowl? She was just sitting there looking cute, while two young males were practically knocking themselves silly trying to get her attention. It's the first time I ever spotted them in my backyard, and it was quite entertaining.
My son comes home from Australia this week, and I can't wait to hug him and hear all about his trip. I'm told he has a full beard. He ended up staying a few extra days and went over to New Zealand by himself to visit the Shire. His sisters are beyond jealous. Of the Shire, not the beard.
So I'm going to make his favorite sweet and sour chicken for dinner and stock the bathroom with razors. Hurry up son, your mama's waiting.
Have fun making stuff this week.
