Free Time

Well, I don't exactly have free time just yet. But as I was saying yesterday I have basically quit my little job at my little school. But I am still substituting for P.E. this week. Man, its just for 3 classes but its Kinder, 1st and 2nd/3rd grades. And let me tell you, this bunch of kids....full of energy!! I taught a year of P.E. about 4 yrs. ago but I think I've aged a bit in these last 4 yrs. I am wore out. I do enjoy getting to see these little guys every day though.

So after this week I will have oodles of time. I bet you are wondering what I will be doing with my time. Like I said I will be taking time to go to the in-laws and visiting my Mom. I've only seen her once since she left in the spring. I can't lie..its been tough. I miss my Mommy :).

I also will be putttering around the house. I have lots of purging to do. A couple of summers ago my girls switched rooms when my oldest moved out. Well, they are all a-jumble with each others things in all the rooms. So I am going to start in the empty room and go to town. There are loads and loads of toys that need to go to better homes. Then hopefully by summer time we can all pick how we want to decorate and have a paint party!!!

There will also be lots of crocheting. I am really wanting to make some blankets to sell. We'll see if that ever really happens. But I really have had a fun time making my niece's Harry Potter blanket so I would like to do some more. I love trying to figure out how to make what is in my head. Though my next blanket will be for H. A Houston Texans blanket. She wants each block to look like their jerseys. When I get started I will do a whole post just on that.

Here is the finished product. The HP was a last minute addition. I had had some Hogwarts patches to add to it but they were just too small and weren't working. So I had to brain storm a little. It came out  better than I hoped. Maybe not as good as some of the others I have seen but I'm happy with it. I am hoping my niece and her future husband will be too. In case you were wondering....Griffendor is the upper left, Slytherin is upper right, Ravenclaw is lower left and Hufflepuff is lower right. The gray represents stone in the Hogwarts school. 

I have lots of yarn left...anyone need a house scarf?
