Coming up for Air

Hello Everyone!  Did you think I dropped of the face of the earth?  Well, I sort of did.  I thought that once school was out, things would slow down a little bit, but that's just not the case.  And this week, my immediate supervisor is on vacation, so work has been a little hectic as well.

Friday Night we went over to the retirement home to visit Car Guy's grandmother, Mom Brady.  They had a band outside on the lawn playing beach music and fresh lemonade. We sat on a blanket and listened to the music until Mom Brady was ready to go in.  She claimed that it was "alright" but, since I was sitting right beside her, I noticed that more often than not her feet were tapping quite happily to the music.  The picture to the left is of the clouds as we were leaving.  The sun was coming through so beautifully.

Saturday night we went over to Robert and Araceli's house to celebrate Sue's birthday.  Araceli is an amazing cook and she fixed us all dinner. This picture does NOT do it justice. We had steak tacos, stuffed peppers and rice.  The peppers had just enough heat to be spicy, but not so hot you couldn't eat them. 

Then there was desert...OMG!!!
Amy made tiramisu.  I couldn't help myself.  I had two helpings.  I've been eating really well lately and losing those pesky pounds that I gained after my surgery, but I couldn't back away from this.  It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!

The rest of this week has been busy with work and family.  My hooks have been quite lately in lieu of knitting and I'm really missing them.  I've almost finished knitting the hat for the recent graduate.  I've just got to do the decrease rounds, weave in the ends and add a pom-pom to the top. That yellow/gold is so bright, that I think she'll stand out anywhere except in the sea of black and gold at her chosen college.

Well, that's the week in a nutshell.  Nothing really exciting going on, but I thought I'd come up for air and stop by to say hello :)  Hope every one's week is going well.  I've enjoyed seeing what you all have been working on and as always, I appreciate your visit.  I'll try to be around more often!


  1. How nice of you to spend time with grandma. And I love that photo of the sky and clouds! I love pretty clouds. Your hat looks great.. did you know you can do a similar hat using crochet? I do them for guys and little boys all the time. You go up and down crocheting in the front loop and it makes a rib. I'm glad you came to say hello!

  2. Hello :) Life gets in the way at times doesn't it and before you know it a week or two have wizzed by. Glad you are ok.
