Wow, I can't believe the heat! I was going to finish up caulking and painting the crown molding in the baby room this week, but that's just not going to happen. Maybe on Sunday morning, when it's cooler. Luckily, sleeping in our basement provides enough relief to sleep. We don't need a fan or A/C. I'm having a hard time complaining at all about this heat, like a lot of people are since we had such a long cold winter and I really dreamed for days like this. Riding my Vespa to work in 35F was really not all that fun.

Thursday I start weekly prenatal yoga classes. It will bee good to stretch out since I just haven't been doing that on my own. Moving about the house doing chores and walking out around downtown Bellevue has been my exercise over the past months. Otherwise, I am feeling really good!

One year ago today!
I got all the logs entered into our sailing blog on Sunday morning since I woke up way too early, 4:30AM.

I've been working on my baby's heirloom sweater and it's going great, I love the feel of the yarn. And the pattern is good for picking up a bit every day.

We got the crown moulding I bought two and a half years ago up in the baby's room monday. I am excited to finished that up to get the room in order soon.

Last night I found a Paul Frank diaper bag at Ross and even though it's pink, the Julius monkey is so fun, Jesper said he'd carry it around anyway. Jesper would prefer the one with "Skully" on it. He's even put Skully decal on his vacuum, but of course, I got it at Ross and I'm not going to pay $80 at Nordstrom.

I bought a Miracle Blanket for swaddling from someone on craigslist and am going to try to make more from the original. I've been told this one is the only one that the baby will stay in as it gets stronger.

I think I haven't been posting as much because I hang out on Facebook more these days, AND I need to get my knitted items photographed.

Anyway, we were on vacation last week sailing in the San Juan Islands... photos here on Flickr. I'm happy to have come back with a tanned face and hands. This summer has just been so beautiful. This weekend I should be posting our sailing logbook on our Impulsive blog.

For my next knitting project, I am going to make Lucille, an heirloom sweater. I ordered Elann Peruvian Baby Cashmere in pewter and it's going to be gorgeous. I also picked up yarn in an eggplant color to make this cute cabled cardigan.
