Vacation... much too short as always!

Just a quick post... back from vacation, which was definitely much too short! I will have photos to post later in the week as I sort through the piles and piles of stuff - both at work and at home. The piles are endless, esp at work. Laundry is a must. Though ahead of almost everything on the list would be to finish my hat and get my "homework" done for my class at the Granite State Knit-In this Saturday. I can't wait and am really looking forward to it! I'll be driving up with Joanne and Marlene and meeting some familiar faces there, including the wonderful Lisa (who - gasp! - almost forgot that the Knit In was this Saturday... but I can't speak too much on that because she reminded me about the hat thing when I mentioned having to do my homework... oops, almost forgot about finishing that!).

As I said, will have photos later in the week... including my small haul from
Charlotte Yarn. Not too much, as they did not really have anything local (same thing I ran in to last fall in VA ... I'm thinking we New England Knitters are a spoiled bunch with all the yummy local wools, hand dyed yarns and knitting notions we have readily available in our LYS).

On the racing front, one of my bestest friends Teri is thrilled that one of her men,
Casey Mears, won his first race thanks to a gamble on gas mileage! She got to see his first win though - which is very cool! Even cooler? Jimmie Johnson did NOT win in Charlotte again this year and we happened upon these folks on the way in to the race Sunday...


Gotta love race fans and their signs! Just wait until you see the doggy related signs I found at a hole-in-the-wall dinner we lunched at... (to come later in the week)

Even though the trip was too short, I did have something to put a smile on my face in my inbox upon my return (and of course, the big smile from seeing my own 4-legged children when we picked them up last night!)...


Yup, that's "Little Man" Dustee! His Mom sent me a few new photos over the weekend and I just loved these two... the smile and the yawn, how perfectly Dustee! I also had a short update on Miss Trixie and hear that they'll be sending me some new pictures soon! It sounds like she's settling right in with her new family, being the cat-dog little princess and went for a grooming over the weekend. I hadn't heard about her since I had to drop her for the Massachusettes mandated quarantine, so it was extra nice to hear she's doing well!

Our 3 kids were more than happy to have Mommy & Daddy come pick them up from boarding last night and after a joyful ride home, promptly passed out. Guess all their 4-legged neighbors were barking a bit too much for their liking and took away some of their beauty rest for the past week!

Not sure if I'll make knitting guild tonight or not, but will see some of you at the Knit In on Saturday!
