Skyrim!

image 
I’ve gotten some more done on Mickael and Caleb’s Skyrim helmets/hats.  I’m working on the cabled band that goes around the hat right now and I’m more than halfway around at this point.  I’m trying to work very carefully because since I’m doing them both at once, my tendency is to do the first one with the charts and then kind of wing the second one.  This leads to frogging and reknitting of the second one.  I’m making a conscious effort now to use the charts for both the first and the second one, which may make it a little slower row by row, but should be faster in the end.

Starting bright and early Monday morning, there will be a new adventure around here!  We had been noticing, particularly on the North side of our house, that every time it rained, we were getting brick crumbles.  We contacted the builder (the house is only 9 years old) and after having multiple visits from them and a couple of masons, they determined that the original brick wasn’t cured right, so our brick is going to be replaced.  Mickael and I got to pick out a color and Monday morning they start the demolition of the original brick.  It’s going to involve little sledgehammers according to my contact at the builder.  I can not even begin to tell you how excited we are about this, but we know it has to happen and the sooner they start, the sooner they’ll be finished.  I think the noisiest part of it will be getting down the old brick and they should be mostly done and onto the quieter parts before we start school again on September 2.  I was given a time frame of 45 days from when they start, but the 45 days includes all the work as well as inspections and has some wiggle room built in.  So, this will be new and exciting, or at least that’s how I’m trying to think of it.  Logan will probably have kittens at everything that’s fixing to happen so it should be interesting.

Definitely the noisiest part will be at the beginning of this venture, but it will be so worth it!
