Weekend Agenda

Busy busy weekend with all the excuses I needed NOT to complete any quarterly bookkeeping work. Started out Friday night seeing Debbie Reynolds at the Castro Theatre. She is quite the character and after a quick analysis of the audience her comment was... "I've never been in a room full of so many men who don't want to sleep with me."

Saturday I visited the Fibrearts Show. Lots of cool stuff but I did resist the urge to spend money. I really do need to finish what I have on the needles already.

Can't let a weekend go by without some Red Hat Fun. So here we were with the Horn Man... his assistant seems to think we should title the picture "Horny Man with Red Hatters".... hmmm

Fun Fun Fun... back to work work work!

Purple Cupcakes

Hurry... these won't be around for long. Get some quick.

Cat with Knitting

Rusty is checking out the progress on the Field of Flowers shawl. You can't see them well but my new stitch markers are on the needles too. I got them from Suzanne.

Kid with Cat

Little J spent lots of time with us this weekend. He found a new perch.

No Smoking

Uncle Mac is convalescing in a nearby care center. We go to visit him and notice this "smoking area". Is it or isn't it? (OK... I do get it... smoke here but don't throw butts in trash can.) Anyway, since Little J likes to sit on the bench we hope no one smokes while he is visiting!

Letting off Steam

This has been bugging me so here goes. These are my grandchildren. I love them both the same. Now, for the idiot who approached our dinner table at a local restaurant the other night... Your comment, "oh isn't this son adopted one of those abused children too." It just so happens that neither one of these children is adopted and even if they were, the comment was inane and inappropriate. I feel sorry for your grandchild.

Ugly Sweater

This has to be the ugliest sweater I ever knitted. I thought I liked the yarn. It feels good but I don't like the way it knits up. Maybe it's the knitter. Who knows. Anyway, I'll never tell what the yarn is but it is made by a company whose name starts with "c". I probably should have made the scarf that was pictured on the yarn skein instead. Oh well, this will keep Little J warm and he can swim in mud puddles in it for all I care.


The Orchid Leaf Pi Shawl has been put on hold. Instead I cast on for Field of Flowers. Note, this is the first time I ever attempted a provisional cast on. Heck, it's the first time I ever tried lace knitting. Ask me what I think about it after I complete another 30,000 or so stitches. By the way, the yarn is purple. Of course.

Weekend so Far

Started off the weekend... instead of working Friday, I played. First on agenda - free music is always a good option so a friend and I attended a performance by Echo Beach Band. Unfortunately there were few in attendance so of course when the press came around, they got me. You know which one is me of course... the one with the red hat.

Had enough Jazz so today we went on Hornblower Cruise just to see one of our very favorite musicians, John Lee Sanders.

Returned home just in time to rush off to the yarn store to buy purple yarn for Field of Flowers shawl. Yes I changed my mind and am going to use a different pattern. Told the cashier I'd bring it in when done.... in maybe 5 years or so.
