Promised yarn pics... and an elephant too

Hey y'all! I've been having a really nice Saturday - what about you guys? After the usual Saturday running around (except for the spin class which I didn't go to because I didn't sign up for it yet) we came home for a day of relaxation - which for me meant doing a whole lot of nothing. We threw the front door open (which is a big deal for me because of my aversion to bugs!) and decided on a course of action. The kids settled in for some painting (translated as a mess contained in one spot of the house!) which they happily took to. For some reason though, the water that is used to clean the brushes was of more interest at one point for them. Huh, go figure!

I on the other hand took some pics of the yarn I purchased sometime back. I actually went outside!

Here's the seasilk in rose:

And here's the nature's palette sock yarn:

I don't have a pic of my Adamas progress, but I can safely tell you she is growing! I'm now starting repeat 11 and am motivated knowing there are only 3 more of these repeats and then the border edge (I think!). I'm soon finished though!

The other thing we did today was to complete my daughter's project for school - land transportation. I decided on an elephant! I found cool site that gave simple instructions on how to make an elephant with some basic items.

Here's our version:

I think he turned out pretty ok. One problem though... this was to be made out of a box or paper! Gah!! If I don't find another elephant to make within the requirements then this blue fella will have to be submitted. Oh well! At least we tried!

After our elephant adventure, I went to bed to read the last few chapters for my assignment and promptly fell asleep! That's tax for you - an instant snoozer!

Continue to have a great day even though it's almost over!

Oh... p.s. Brooke finally went home! I was doing the football touchdown dance lol!
