This week went by. It has been raining a LOT. I put in my garden in the raised bed and now we don’t have any sun. I know there hasn’t been a lot of sun in the northwest either, judging from the news from home. But I wish they’d quit sending their clouds my way.
I went to a stitch and bitch at Dunn Bros on Wednesday. I guess Med City does have a little knitting group that meets weekly. I decided that is something that I would like to do. So I went running, then over to Dunn’s and sat around talking about knitting for an hour and a half. Very pleasant. Next week I promise to take a picture. The other two girls, Karen and Barbara, were untangling a big bunch of yarn which would have made a good picture.
On Friday there was a retirement party for Cheryl, who is our clerical support. She used to be a financial worker and so very handy to have around. She knew all the ins and outs of the rules and regs of eligibility and how to find out lots of important stuff. She’ll be done at the end of the month (I am so jealous I could spit!)
Anyway, Mary K and the crew set up the room, and then I arrived and honed in on this right away
Oh yeah, that’s what I’m talkin’ about.
Cheryl is a seamstress, quilter, and all sorts of crafts person so we decorated with my quilts and her little American Girl dresses (which she makes, and custom makes to match the owners outfits-I gotta get me one of them dolls).
I took a few pictures of my quilts
Here’s a couple-the one on the left was a Superbowl Mystery Quilt.
And I think this one was a mystery also.
This is the one I gave to Mary K
And speaking of Mary, look at the kind of reception I get from just trying to snap some blogworthy photos
See the evil eye? She’s giving me a warning-and then this
Now look at my good girls, Lyndsey and Laura
See how they embrace the blog? My Posse. I’m so proud.
Cheryl got a plaque from the director of Social Services Paul Fleissner.
Those are her little American Doll clothes in the background.
And she got a corsage from Corinne-
I am not blogging in real time this week.
And then a group shot of the Community Well Gang with our fearless leader, Corrine.
From L-Corrine, Cathy, Cheryl, Mary, Dawn, Anne and me. That dark thing around my neck is my badge lanyard. My badge was getting in the way of eating my cake.
Then on Saturday I went back to Dunn Bros to have early coffee with my other knitting friend Barb, who used to teach BOTM. She was drop spindling which looks like this
Of course, that’s not her because I didn’t take any pictures of that either. Jeepers. Get a grip.
Saturday afternoon we went to Angie’s new house in Chatfield for a house warming. She has a beautiful house, and I would have taken pictures but I ran out of battery taking pictures of this
A room full of babies with Laura and Ali. Well, Ali has Chase (standing, center) with her, and Laura….well, you know….
Morgan was there too, a little overwhelmed by a room full of toys and babies.
Is that not a “Holy Cow!” look or what?
And our little Cora, leading the way
Isn’t she a big girl? She was in a good mood this day.
And at one point Laura set a new record by being surrounded by 3 babies
Good Lord. I wish I would have had enough battery for 1) the rest of the house and 2) Laura crawling through a 3 foot tube into a Barbie House. I really wish I had a picture of that.
Today Dave decided to clean all the cushions on the couch and pile them up for the cat to sit on.
And then I decided to take family photos.
Elvin (aka Yeltsie)
Trixie (aka Noodle). She was slightly stressed about the photograhy thing.
And Beta, in all his one eyed glory (aka One eyed Did-as usual, don’t even ask)
I have been told that I am no longer allowed to take pictures of Dave’s head. The new rule is 7 feet, darkened and blurred.
These are no longer acceptable.
Of course, I only blogged this one as an example. Just so you know.
