Start of Summer break

This begins my summer vacation, one week off from work. This time we are staying around with maybe a quick camping trip.  Friday night was relaxing and headed into Saturday which included yarn shopping and an early birthday dinner for Amy J.

Sunday found us with our old friend visiting from Kansas with their new baby girl. There is just something about cuddling a four week old baby girl. I did a lot of knitting but still working on the finally rows of the shawl.

Wednesday night means knitting and relaxing watching DVD's which was much needed after a day of dealing with the foam snow from the prep of the foam for stucco at work.

MId-Holiday Weekend Update

I walked a bit on the 4th before it got too hot. I have new walking shoes that I love!
 Then had a berry smoothie that was more like ice cream than a drink.
Preston was doing some computer stuff for me at my office, so I knitted a little while I waited. 
 After a wonderful lunch out, followed by a great nap and then a little TV, it was cool enough for knitting while Preston grilled dinner.
 Dry Aged steak and grilled carrots just about perfect for the day.
 We each viewed our own movies, I like to knit while I watch TV so it is a compromise. Then off to bed some time after midnight.  Saturday started with brunch at our favorite restaurant with my parents and oldest brother. Afterwards we ran a series of errands, including getting raw honey right from the hive at the Honey Stop. So yummy.  Since we spent a lot of time in the van, I got the 9 inch leg done and started on the heel flap on Preston's new socks.
Preston is currently on a dessert run. I am going to knit on something else for a while. We plan to hit the movies tomorrow. Anything to stay cool.
