Death By Monkeys

Last Sunday The Hub and I went to see Toy Story 3 (not in 3D). It was very good. It was a cute movie with a lot of heart. It also has the underling story of what happens to toys when they are no longer needed. It was a good bookend to the Toy Story trilogy. Of course, the animation is fantastic (I expect no less from Pixar). There is a scene that is quite intense and there was a little kid crying in the theater, so it may not be appropriate for all kids. The short in the beginning is really odd and well not very interesting. I think they were experimenting with the animation, but I do not think it worked over all. However, the movie is worth seeing and I am giving it 3 ¼ knitting needles.

Knitting Knews
Okay, I have not been knitting very much. I have stuff to finish up for work and I have a sweater to knit for the Fair. It is July 3rd and I have not started with my Fair project. Well, that is not totally true… I have the yarn and I know what I am going to do, I just need to plan it all out. We will see if I am able to do it.

Needlepoint News
I am almost finished with my trick or treat needlepoint canvas. I do think I mentioned in my last posting that I have started to do needlepoint as well. I finished my Scotland ornament and sent it off to be finished and I received back my 1st project. I needlepointed a heart canvas and had it put into a box. If I could find my camera I would post a picture.

Other News
I survived the visit from the in-laws, although it was a very long week. And my MIL developed a Urinary Tract Infection and a cold so she was out of commission for a couple of days.
Today, The Hub and I went and picked raspberries. We picked 6 pounds. It was a great day to be out in the field, it was warm, but breezy. I am not sure what I am going to do with them yet, but I think most will just be eaten.
I missed strawberries this year. June was so busy I just did not get down there. They said that they might have a “get what you can day” either Monday or Tuesday just to finish off the season. Hopefully it will be Tuesday and I can go get some berries anyway.

Well, that is about all the news I have today. I hope you have a safe and happy 4th of July!
