Chucky, the 4th and some Fill Ins...

TGIF! The sun is actually shining today and there's no rain in the forcast... well, until tomorrow night anyway.... Why can't we go more than 36 hours without rain? The grass is already overgrown again... I'm going to have to round up a few more woodchucks to help in the manual "mowing!" Here's Chucky trying to do his part a couple weeks ago...

At least I assume that's Chucky... could be a grown up Baby Chuckita for all I know.

At least the rain held off for the 4th of July BBQ at my parents place last weekend. Although some people didn't show up, a nice time was had by those who did!

My half sister who I hadn't seen in quite a number of years (oh, I'm guessing maybe 20?) came and I finally met my niece & nephew (Amber & Austin above), which was very nice. I think my Dad was very excited to get a picture with his two daughters...

Since I often talk about two particular knitters in my life, my Mom (who's name is Sue) and my Mom-Sue (obviously also named Sue, she is Matt's stepmom), I thought a photo of Mom and Mom-Sue would be fitting, although you'd expect to find knitting in their laps at a BBQ, no?

Somehow the day went by without a pic of Matt & I, but here we are from the weekend before... at NHMS for the races in the nice suite!

Now... time for a little Friday Fill Ins!

1. The last thing I ate was a Lean Cuisine chicken panini and Diet Pepsi.
2. 2 skeins of Lorna's Laces special June colorway for Jimmy Bean's Wool (gorgeous!) is something I recently bought.
3. When it rains, it rains for a month straight in New England lately.
4. Matt was the first person I talked to today.
5. Hugs are essential.
6. I'm in need of a little extra comfort.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to relaxing, tomorrow my plans include going to see Joel McHale and Sunday, I want to see some racing - that is, if the rain holds off!

Glad the rain held off for your get-together. Dianne cracks me up. She wants every animal posted about.

Great photos! Love that yarn. Wonder if TLE has it? Hmmm...

Glad you got some sun finally. Your family is beautiful! Watch out for that woodchuck...they can be a bit cantankerous.
