One of those days

Do you ever have one of those days when instead of reading your favorite blogs, you just stop by to look at the pictures? Today was one of those days for me. To all my blog friends, sorry my mind just isn't there today. Maybe I will be in the reading mood tomorrow. To top it off, I don't even have a photo for my blog. Sorry!

at the park

Even though it is 100+ today, I am the park, knitting and listening to all the bands at Summer Jam. It is a showcase event for our summer program and amp'd bands. I love where I work!

Dinner with friends

I have to say that one of my favorite things to do is to hang out with friends. Tonight was no exception. Our hosts for this lovely evening were LadyC and MrSir. They are perfect hosts. They made us feel very welcome and they worked hard to insure the meal was gluten free. I always love spending time with this couple. They refresh the heart, mind, and spirit!

We enjoyed relaxing on the patio before dinner. Followed by a meal of grilled chicken salad with ice cream for dessert. We could have talked all night. But alas Mr80grit works early tomorrow so now we are home. What a great night!

car knitting

Today has been a relaxing day. Yesterday my MIL broke her foot and we spent the afternoon and evening with her. We took a Dinner break to see the band from work. They were really good. We got home quite late so we slept in today. Mr80grit and I both needed it. We went out for lunch and took a drive so I got a little knitting done in the car. We are now heard home to watch movies!

Beautiful Rainy Day

Today is a perfect Saturday for me. It is raining and cooler than it has been all week. Perfect for knitting and catching up on blogs. The only thing that is making the day not perfect is that Mr80grit had to work today. He is required to work one Saturday a month. He loves rainy days as much as I do. Plus after work he is going to his former Science Club Teacher's 75th birthday party. Some how I don't have to go which is okay with me. Maybe I will head to the yarn store and do some card shopping also.

I have not posted in a while as I got some news regarding a love one on August 3rd and I am still processing the information.

This next week is that last week of summer schedule for work and we end it with bang on Saturday the 22nd with Summer Jam.

So off to enjoy the day, maybe take pictures if the sun comes out on some completed projects.

10 years ago

10 years ago today I had major open heart surgery. My friend gave me this bear to let me know she was praying for me. This has been a weekend of reflection of the last 10 years. I have been not only very blessed by the surgery but those who supported me during that time and since that time. I have realized many things that I want to improve. More to follow later. Today is a day of Thanksgiving and celebration.
