First homework assignment complete

I have a list of things to accomplish this week. The first one was to sew the buttons on this baby sweater for the shower on Saturday. Completed today at 8:20 pm.

The next step is to block it, assignment #2.

The other main assignment I have is to read a book that I borrowed from my brother MrHarley eighteen months ago. He is on a trip currently but when he gets home next week he wants the book back so that he can read it again.  So no pressure! ;)

Knitting Update -Socks

I started this sock on vacation in Washington and finally on Sunday got to the heel flap. Then I found out I have a baby shower on the 25th of August and I just barely bought the yarn on Friday. So as soon as I got home on Sunday, I cast on the Baby Surprise Jacket. I will do a mobile post later today with a picture.

My new goal

I can't seem to stop at one piece, I guess I should give the other pieces away! ( but then I would have to buy more chocolate).........

Red Butte Gardens

Tonight was my first visit to Red Butte gardens here in Salt Lake. My boss's son was married there this afternoon and the reception was this evening. It was very beautiful and amazingly very cool considering the temperature outside. The picture is the only one I got, but the whole place was beautiful. We enjoyed our time there, but I forgot to take allergy medication before I went so I had to take two doses this evening.

Company parties

For the first time since we got married hubby and I got to go to his company picnic. Just after we got married the areas we worked for started doing employee only parties. Although we worked for the same company we never could attend each others. Since I changed jobs to the guitar school, he has gone to mine. But today I got to go to his as he changed jobs/position within the company to another division which allows family to their party/picnic. We had fun playing bingo and won all those prizes. I was even able to eat some of the food with no issues. Not bad.

Today my van made a milestone today, so I pulled over and took a picture. We went nearly 2400 miles on our trip.
