The sky is blue, there's a nice breeze, and it's about 76 out. The gorgeous weather will be here for a few days, then back to the 90's during the week.
It's September! We have important dates! Kevin and Naureen had their 5th anniversary on the 1st. Sharon and Barbara both have birthdays on the 9th, and Mikey turns 26 on the 13th. Ralph turns 62 on the 21st, and his last day of work before retirement is the 25th. He also has jury duty on his birthday. Eddie turns 7 on the 23rd- how can that be?
Ed, Heather, Eddie and Julianna are coming up for a close friend's wedding, so we having a joint party on the 26th. The usual goodies- meatballs, keilbasi in sauerkraut, salads, and of course a cake from Sweet Eats!
Manda and Ben are in Nebraska for the long weekend. Polly and Randy are throwing them a wedding reception on Sunday. I would have liked to go, but with school starting it would have been just too hard. I know it'll be fun for them, and Manda will meet more of Ben's family.
Steph got back from her business trip to Chicago last night. She was about to do some touring of Chicago, and enjoyed it a lot. The puppies are cute and adorable, and I was so glad to see them go home! They greeted Steph like she'd been gone for years.
I've been in crochet mode- I have a lot of soft baby yarn, and I'm determine to use it up. I've made 2 baby sized afghans, and I'm working on the 3rd. I probably have enough yarn for at least 2 more. I'll store them til they're needed, along with the flannel receiving blankets that I've made. I have the larger pieces of flannel on the work table to be cut into PJ bottoms.
In August I read 12 books, all from the library. I've also downloaded several free and low cost books onto the Nook. We started back to school on Wednesday, the kids came in Thursday, and I went to bed at 9 pm on Thursday. I haven't had time to play with the new phone. Ralph is getting really proficient on his.
And the beat goes on!
