Where to Start ...

McDonald's in the theatre district in New York City, where people stand in lines for hours for this show.

It's hard to believe it's been almost a month since I last posted. Life has been a whirlwind for me. You see, David and I are on a two week vacation, with still one week to go. Before we could take off on the vacation, however, life was spinning out of control. I'll try to catch everyone up in the next few posts, but I can't guarantee anything. In the meantime, I have been knitting away. I've done three baby blankets, socks, placemats, started a sweater for ME, and am currently working on a sweater for a darling little girl.
Now where to start. ...

I had to get a new camera for our trip, so I spent one weekend at Edgar's Acres practicing and got some nice shots.
Here's Johnny telling Edgar how much he adores his big brother.

Believe it or not, here's a picture of Johnny in a "still" position. It only lasted 4 seconds. This little heart murmur baby is a flurry of energy.

The picture of my foot was an exercise in using the close up shots.

I had to get this shot of Louie sunbathing while panting his little head off.

The weekend following our trip to Edgar's Acres, we ladies had our Summer Solstice weekend. It was a blast as always, eating, drinking and knitting until 11:00 p.m when it finally started getting dark.

A Dropped Stitch in Sequim had a sock yarn dying party which was a kick. Nora had gone ahead and knit the fabric in white yarn so we would tie to our heart's desire, and then knit into a pair of socks. Since Leslie doesn't knit, she was the official photographer.

The yarn is waiting at home for me to knit up into a pair of socks this winter.

We also placed St. Francis in the Friendship Garden at Edgar's Place, and he is very happy there.

St. Francis belonged to Susan's mother. When her mother passed, Susan brought St. Francis back with her to be placed in the Garden to finish out his life. So far none of the dogs have peed on him, and none of the birds have pooed on him. He looks very special in the garden and we feel blessed to have him in at Edgar's Acres.

Speaking of Edgar. We have discovered he is a convertible dog. He hates riding in cars unless he is tucked into his crate. Unless ...He's riding in the backseat of Cynthia's convertible. He loves it. The look says it all.

He was born to ride with his ears in the wind.

Now, our trip. We have been planning this trip for two years now. I'll give more details later, but so far we have traveled to New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania and leave tomorrow morning for Washington DC.

Off to get some sleep before heading off to DC.
