Another Friday - thank goodness!! And today is my Birthday!! Naturally I have conference calls I need to be on, but only 2 - the longest and most boring one has been cancelled. YAY I'm thinking that before Noon I should be able to call it a day and just relax and knit or stitch some. Fingers crossed.
Fletch and I wandered over to Colin & Mailing's late yesterday afternoon. It was a nice change of pace to be at their place on a Thursday. We did order out (I had a grilled veggie hoagie which was way too large - I couldn't even eat half of it!). And after that we had a nice fire in the pit. It was cool enough that we all had jackets on - even around the fire.
Colin & Mailing have been busy, busy, busy building a patio off of their sun room. this has been going on for some time - the gravel, sand and slate sat in their driveway for months as they excavated the area for the patio. First they dug the area and then, finally, filled it with gravel and then sand and then laid slate pieces on top. Turns out they need another pallet of blue slate, but it's getting there. They also got other large pieces of slate/rock to make pathways. One from around the side of their garage over to the patio and then one down their back yard to where they have a table and chairs and the fire pit. This is what it looks like at present looking back up to the house.
At the patio area they plan to add some soil between the slate slabs and then plant some ground covers. I think it is going to be so pretty.
So, tomorrow is the fiber festival - Cannot Wait! I have some ideas of things - yarn - that I would like to get, but I always get distracted at these events and just sort of buy willy-nilly. Oh well, for me that's the fun of it.
Other excitement - only 2 weeks till we go on vacation! Woo-Hoo. We are both So Ready to Get Away. You know I will be locating yarn shops near our vacation locations before we hit the road. I will be prepared!
Have a wonderful weekend!
