Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering Gods grace in its various forms.

Finally, a Day Worth Turning Off the AC for

Ahhhh...yes, it's still hot but the humidity has flown far far away. I just indulged in some sunny yarny goodness for a solid hour. My desperately-in-need-of-pedicure toes were dangling in the wading pool and my desperately-in-need-of-diet body was reclining in a very comfy lawn chair. I had my wide brim hat on and my current knitting project on my lap. With a cold drink at my side and the monitor on high, what more could I ask for?! Ahhhh...

I had to drag myself away from all that pleasure before I managed to scorch my skin. I think I added a little more color today and I'm glad of it. I've been pasty for YEARS and even though it's now considered "bad," I decided to gently add some color. The funny thing is, my feet and knees tan up pretty well. For some reason, my legs refuse to color up. Hopefully today's infusion will help.

Wild man's party is in 2 days and I seem to be maintaining my calm. The cake has been ordered and will be ready for pick up at it's appointed time. The menu has been written and the shopping planned for tomorrow. Hopefully hubby will help out with some yard work later this afternoon. Since he is working OT the morning of the party I need him to help out as much as he can before hand.

As for the Sunday Sox game issue. I've dropped it. I'm still mad about the whole thing but what can you do?? I'm not one of those wives who has to cinch the reins all the time. I want him to be able to go out and have some least one of us should. Aw - there I go again. I need to get off this subject before sarcasm sets up house.

The Christmas sweater is coming along nicely. I goofed up on the last buttonhole but when it's buttoned no one will ever notice. I'm not ripping out two miles of stitching to go back and fix it. I can live with it looking like that. I'm almost at the 6" mark. When I reach 6" I get to join my work into a round and I can stop with the purling. As fast as I go I'm still much slower purling than I am knitting. I can't seem to get into a proper rhythm. I have a long way to go but once my work is in the round I should be able to cruise.

My LYS is having a 50% yarn sale on Saturday. Figures it's the same day as the party but I'm hoping to stop by while I'm out doing errands. They are having a tent sale so I can leave the wild man in the AC'd car with a movie on and we'll both be happy! There is so much going on - the local library is having their annual book sale and the church next door is having their annual yard sale. There is a circus in town tonight and I think the local twilight league baseball game is on for tomorrow night. Festivals and fairs will be starting soon, too, and I have to say I am really looking forward to them! Especially the craft fairs. Mmmm, possible yarny goodness!

Ok, so I have to prepare the marinade for the steaks we're grilling tonight... Yum yum yummy! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Happy knitting!
