A discussion on Facebook about how I could probably knit a lion has led to me knitting a white tiger for my Mam. I haven't quite finished it yet... I have another leg to finish knitting, then I need to sew the pieces together. I should be done with it in the next couple of days though. I've also finished knitting the little rocket ship I was knitting. I haven't gotten around to getting a photo of the rocket ship yet though. I might as well wait until I've finished the tiger and do them at the same time now. I'm planning on making some more cards this weekend too, so I'll probably just wait until I've finished those as well and sort the photos for the two knitted items and the cards at the same time.
It got humid here over the weekend, despite the fact the weather was alternating between being sunny and wet. The result was a couple of nasty storms. Not nearly as bad as some places have had (thankfully) but bad enough to knock our TV signal out, and send Kero under the bed (one of his two favourite hiding places, the other favourite hiding place being under Kelly's computer desk).
I'm finally making a good dent in the stack of reviews that have been queued up on my blogger dashboard waiting to be published. When I first started scheduling the reviews I had enough to fill about two months worth of posts just with reviews, but now I only have a couple of weeks worth of them waiting to be published. Yay! Of course, I also have a small stack of books I'm waiting to have the time to read, but at least now that I'm catching up with my reviews I'm getting closer to the point where when I'm posting a review for something I've watched, read or listened to, it will actually be from something I've watched, read or listened to recently, rather than stuff I was watching, reading or listening to several months back. LOL!
Speaking of reviews, Kelly finally got around to writing all the reviews he's been meaning to write, so he's set them up to be published on his blog every couple of days. If you're interested in what he's been watching - and his opinion on some of the movies I've reviewed that he's watched too - then you may want to go check those out, and keep an eye on his blog from now on. Also, if you follow his blog and comment, and he doesn't comment on yours... Don't take it personally. He's one of those lurker bloggers. You know? The ones who read your posts but you don't know he's read them because he doesn't comment on them. Half the time he even forgets to reply to comments on his own blog (I know for a fact he reads every single comment though).
We've recently been doing a lot of clutter clearing and packing in preporation for moving. We've got some things we're waiting for people to pick up and take away, some things we'll soon be getting rid of in some other way, and a stack of boxes full of things packed and ready to go. In this next week we're hoping to get to a point where we have everything we're taking that we don't need to keep out packed up, then we can spend the next couple of weeks getting the things that are going elsewhere to where they're going. Our plan is to have all that sorted by mid September (if not a bit before) so we can start asking about those potential places soon after that, and be moving around the end of September or start of October. Of course, whether things go exactly to plan remains to be seen, since things going exactly to plan rarely happens. But that's the plan anyway, so we'll see how things go.
And that's about all I have to say right now. I would have had a post about an outing with Mam and Carl, but we didn't end up going last Friday after all, so no outing means no post about an outing. And I'm afraid most of my time is spent doing the same things pretty much every day; the day is spent alternating between walking Kero, getting stuff sorted and packed, and working on crafts (in between household chores, obviously), and the evening is spent catching up on e-mails, blogs and Facebook posts. Oh, and sometimes I sleep too... Or try to, LOL! Lots of stuff to keep me busy, but not that much worth posting about.
Stay safe, and enjoy the rest of your day! :)
