2nd Sock Update

Thursday, after Knit Night Out, I came home and finished the heel and picked up gusset stitches. As you can see, I didn't knit very much on the way to Houston Friday. I needed to relax and clear the clutter from my head. I hope to fnish this sock by tomorrow as I have a project that I am eager to start!

I did knit a bit last night...
Joe and I got up early this morning; had coffee on the patio watching the hummingbirds. By 8:30am, we were pedaling into Graywood! We biked almost 5 miles this morning. (Our goal is to bike at least 5 days a week - I AM being realistic - I can hear Kim giggling now) We went to the grocery and Joe is currently grilling steaks. After lunch, I will be knitting. Baseball comes on this afternnoon! Sometimes, well, a lot, Tugley and I sack out on the sofa for an afternnoon nap. That is such a luxury and truly a sight to see!
Joe and I have been trying to getting our body clocks in sync since he retired. He is a morning person and I am an afternoon person. Maybe we are almost there.

Our back yard -

I did take lots of pictures Friday - as you can see, they had not poured concrete. Joe was actually glad he got to see the footings. They install a cable lock system under the slab. He liked that A LOT! This view is from the front porch thru to the back porch on into the back yard - right through the house. In the front, they were working on the driveway. Using a neat little tractor, they were digging it out and bringing in clay by dump truck loads. All I can say is it's good to see some progress after nearly 4 months of weather delay. We will probably be moving in August - the hottest month of the year.

I neartly bought some yarn like this yesterday but decided against it. I assumed it would have no 'give' and not make brilliant socks. Am I worng?
The colour of yours looks good and I know I would like this yarn as a slinky sweater.
I have no idea what the stuff about you garden is all about. ;-)
