Hi, my name is Katie and I'm a slacker.

Ok, it's been over a month since I last blogged. However, writing (and especially reading) about that is pretty boring, so let's just get on with at least slightly more interesting stuff.

Home: We started a raised bed garden...late. Partly my fault, partly the fault of the company where I ordered the brackets for the garden. It's not clear whether we'll be able to enjoy the fruits of our labor to the full extent, but we're having fun looking every day to see the progress of our tomatoes, carrots, snap peas, beans, sunflowers, zinnias, cilantro, sage, basil and our pepper plant.

We're also in the process of moving Buttons from her small room and her toddler bed (yes, the bed was way too small) into a larger room and a double bed. She's very excited and luckily likes the color of her new room. The"new" bed belonged to her great-grandma and namesake, so that's very sweet as well. Of course, this move has set off the "we have too much crap cleaning extravaganza".

Social: The parties are in full summer swing! We seem to have at least one every weekend and it's fun. We're planning a trip back to Michigan to visit family and perhaps some mini-trips over the summer, but mostly we're hanging out together around home with friends.

Theater: Woot! I auditioned for the show Rumors and I'm going to play Chris. I'm really excited about it, but it's also the biggest part I've had so far. That will definitely keep me busy this summer as well.

Photos: I've been having fun with shutterbuggin' and I promise to post some next time.

Knitting: I'm trying to finish the toe-up socks I started 2 years ago and I'm at a point where I don't know what to do next. So, I started cuff-down socks and, well, I'm at a point where I think I have more salvage stitches than I should have, but....grrrr.....I'm a bit annoyed with socks right now. Perhaps I'll finish the beautiful Malabrigo scarf I was knitting and then start on a Wallaby for Hubby.

So, pictures to come soon, but right now I need to go play with Buttons.
Happy Monday everyone!

Where are you stuck with the toe-ups? Perhaps i can be a bit of a help?
You need closure. Let no sock remain undone!
