Is it summer yet?

it certainly seemed like it this weekend. And today? Someone told me that it was 93 degrees outside, which even for Kansas, is unusual in May.

Mother's Day was nice. Jay gave me the afternoon off, while he cleaned house, and Little V and I went shopping. Well, window shopping, mostly, but it was nice to have the time to just browse. I did pick up a cheap stroller at WalMart. I didn't want pink or blue, or a disney character, so we now have a stroller with Winnie the Pooh Bear on it (Winifred the Pooh-Ba?)(wait, Pooh Bear is licensed by Disney, isn't it? darn.) Then we went to the outdoor mall. There's a large fountain there, and, of course, there were kids playing in it. Little V just watched and watched...

Ms. L came over to visit today. Jaiden really really wanted to aske her to play, but he was good about not badgering guests, and only showed off his fire minis. Now, Rama, the cat was not being so good. He tried eating Ms. L's bag, and then her keys! If we didn't love him so much, that cat would be a fur rug by now. We chatted about the Sampler Festival over the weekend, and other stuff, until I had to pack up the little kids to fetch LittleSister from at school.

In knitting news, I'm almost done with the latest Fuzzy Shawl (it's not knitted though, it's crocheted) for my friend Fleur. I'm making it with 4 skeins of homespun instead of 2, but it's still taking me longer than it should have. But it is almost done! Then, I've signed up for a swap through Ravelry. The theme for that is 'Bento', Japanese lunchboxes, and I'm brainstorming for a cool knitted gift to send along with my package. heh, i may have to finally make a trip to one of the local (relatively) yarn stores to find presents for the swap.
