Projects coming along

Well, Elmer's socks are coming along.  I'm at the gussets on the second one.  I'd be further but found a mistake and had to rip back.  This is after all his first pair of socks that are handknit by his wife.  I never thought of his feet as big, but when you start a sock with 100 sts and his foot is 11 inches long.  Eleven inches of stockinette feels like miles.  On the upside, the 3 skeins that I bought will make it.  I was a little worried.  i did use some Lorna's Laces that I had left and alternated it with the project yarn for the heel, but I don't think it was necessary.  It would have made it anyway.

When these are finished I will go back to my Monkey socks.  They are languishing in the bag right now waiting patiently( I hope) for me to get back to them.  Of course, the Estonian Garden Wrap is in it's bag waiting too.  And the baby sweater that I started last week is sitting there crying for it's turn.  I need more hands.  Or less housework and cooking to do.  Oooh, and maybe a little less time on Ravelry and Sparkpeople.

The weather here is nice.  At least for now.  We are supposed to have storms coming in later this evening.  It's warm enough to have the windows open and it's not hot enough for AC.  Of course, it's supposed to get cold again tomorrow so it's time to enjoy it while it lasts.

The life change (diet and exercise plan) is going well for the most part.  There are days that I just don't get it right, but overall... not too bad.  I will be floating after all this water that I'm drinking though.  On the upside, I think the toxins are getting flushed out rather well.  LOL

I'm having to get used to my mom being back.  It's been so quiet here with only me home during the day that it's strange to have someone else in the house.
