Hello Everyone!

I hope you're all doing well. I had a really good last week, and off to a good start on August as well. Tonight's farm jog was super extra magical, one of the farms had PONIES out in their pasture. Yes! Little precious PONIES!!! And the cicadas were deafening. I heard nothing but cars, and then turned a corner and found myself in the middle of a cicada jam band.

I don't have pony photography, but I caught the fluffy sheep mingling on film last week.

That sheepy better get it together! Survival of the fittest, ya know?!?!?!?!

I wish I could live or work on a farm... in the meantime I treasure my little garden! I discovered my first ripened tomato which Octavian called dibs on, and I harvested some carrots.

I put myself back on a low-ish fat diet. Trying to avoid as much sugar and fat as possible so I can stay in my clothes! Since I lost 30 lbs I had to buy all new clothes, and I plan on sticking with the new threads. My baking obsession has got to smarten up, and this is the start:

Everyone LOVED the muffs, and the whole two batches were gone in a weekend! I was surprised, my husband didn't even consent to butter offered to his muffins! I highly recommend the recipe.

The KDG shop is on a roll. I think it's looking very pretty these days. I just love the newly listed cardigan, mostly because it's so comfy.

*Looks around* This place is so drab!! How about I hang up a happy yellow wreath to beautify things a bit. This wreath is fresh and new, part of a series of wreaths I'm building this season. I hope it can find a good home!

Thanks for tuning in! Until next time,
Keep it Knitty!
