Can Tuesdays be random?

Sunday was just lovely around here. It was supposed to be showery, but this was much better! This is a sky picture for Sandy. I don't think there are many things that smell better than line-dried sheets, do you?

The tomatoes and summer squash got planted. This year, I'm trying something new by laying down weedblock fabric, cutting holes in it for the plants and mulching heavily (with grass clippings) over it. Here's hoping that will cut down on some maintenance.

There are also some "do-overs" for some previously done outside projects. The idea of putting down large, flat rocks and growing a ground cover between them is great. However, the only ground cover I seem to be able to grow is weeds. So, I spent part of of a day moving rocks and removing said weeds. Tonight, I plan on putting down heavy-duty landscaper's weedblock fabric and putting the rocks back. There are two areas like this, so after the second is done, then we'll get some pea gravel to put between the rocks and will be done with that.

How is this fiber-related? If there's less weeding, there's more time to spin and knit, right?

Kat with a K had this quiz on her blog. I took it and am

This makes me happy, as I get all the perks and keep my head!
