End of the Week... End of July

Yippee... its Friday!!!! Although I had a short work week, its still great to be at the end of it!

I took Monday & Tuesday off and went to the Red Sox vs Oakland game on Monday night. We were on top of the Green Monster (I now want to watch games only from up there!), Beckett was pitching, we did not get rained on and the Sox won... all was good!

Here's Josh Beckett warming up... and the cast from Jersey Boys singing the National Anthem...

During my 4 day weekend, I finished off another Cross Stitch scarf. I love this stitch... it makes for a pretty scarf (great gifts!) so I seem to always have one on the needles as my no-brainer knitting that I can pick up here or there. Lola thought about modeling it, but it was much too hot this week for wool...

Yarn is Seacoast Handpainted Llama & Wool in the Colorado colorway. I had cast this on sometime back in January and it sat in the living room where I can easily pick it up and knit a couple rows here and there. The scarf is a little on the short side, given that the hank of yarn was only 132 yars. You can click for a closer look here. This one will most likely become a Christmas gift, although I have absolutely no idea who for yet... I haven't decided who's colors these are. Do you know?

Matt got another win last Sunday... way to go honey!

We now have two Sundays in a row off from racing. I wish that meant we had two free weekends in a row, however it seems that nearly every weekend in August is either mostly or overly full at this point. Can you believe its August already? On that note, I'll leave you with some Fill-Ins for today...

1. It's time for July to end and the mad-dash holiday knitting to begin (what happened to all those things I had planned to knit over the summer??).

2. Inside with a/c; it's not a bad place for being this week .

3. I must be getting old... I caught myself uttering those crazy words "back in the day!"

4. Foot massages, hugs, lobster, good wine, chocolate, dogs, knitting is are the best things I have ever known.

5. My house is simply full of dog hair, dog beds, dog toys, dog drool.... if you don't like dogs, you probably shouldn't visit.

6. The last time I laughed really loudly was at the Joel McHale show a couple weeks ago.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to doing absolutely nothing, tomorrow my plans include going to friends' wedding and Sunday, I want to see no rain... we're supposed to go on a whale watch!

I used to love to go to baseball games on hot summer evenings, drinking beer and eating rubber hot dogs. I miss those days.
