Park Project - Phase 0

This is a photo of the park area after the house was demolished, the concrete rectangles removed, and the walking path and new parking lot were constructed. I didn't get to design the layout of the path, but I set the grades and I designed the parking lot.

Park Project - Before

This is an aerial photo of the park from 2005. The site is bound by Taft, Pointe Tremble, Ester Green and Lakepointe roads. The buildings on the east side are the Township's offices and the Police Station. The house in the center has been demolished, but the garage is still there. I'm not sure what the west side of the site was used for, but I think all those little rectangles of concrete were spots for campers. There is one rather strange building still standing in this area. It's 20' by 30' and it's gutted now, but I think there used to be 2 bathrooms in it. I'm guessing it was an office and public bathroom for a campground.

I knitted a sock!

They are for my sister who is 6'2" and wears a lady's size 12 shoe. She's a Children's Librarian and a fan of Harry Potter so I made her a pair in Gryffindor's house colors. I used KnitPicks' worsted weight Swish yarn. They were done toe-up using the Judy Becker Magic Cast-on and the Andersson heel.

nap time

This is Bailey. We're adjusting to life without Chloe. I'm doing well, I can think about the stupid/funny/weird stuff Chloe used to do and smile instead of sob. Bailey is acting strange, though. She never used to meow, but now she meows quite often to get my attention. She used to be very aloof, but now she wants to be with me all the time. I don't get it. She and Chloe weren't exactly cuddle buddies. In fact, Bailey would have a hissy fit whenever Chloe got too close to her. Does she miss Chloe's company, or is she happy to have me to herself now?
