On Saturday, we had a wonderful time visiting with cousins we rarely see, since they had the nerve to move far away from the Seattle area. It's great now that baby K is walking; ever notice how a get-together turns into a "show" when there's a baby, puppy, or kitten as the center of attention? That's how it was, but everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Baby K really liked the chocolate cake!Sunday was a tribute to Samuel Goldfarb, music director of the Temple our family belonged to when I was growing up. My sister and I joined the choir reunion group along with our mom, and we all participated in the program. It ended up being a lot of fun, and we saw people and sang songs we hadn't thought of or heard in years.
We got back to the house, WB went off to work and we finished setting up his new bed and making it with new sheets and his old, familiar comforter from home. He had a cozy place to sleep last night!
Here we are in front of his new home:
After we finished our work at the house, we visited WB at his job; cooking at a deli. We had to see with our own eyes (and taste with our own mouths) just how this was going. I can remember him cooking once at home when it wasn't food for himself. Anyway, we each had a different menu item (no one had taco salad, since we were advised that it was the hardest thing to make) and were pleased with the result. We enjoyed our early meal, and the extra time visiting with our boy in his work surroundings.
Anyone for some fries?
We dropped by the college bookstore to pick up some gear for LS, then straight home to the mailbox. Beautiful Lorna's Laces and Cherry Tree Hill's new Sockittome were in the box. There seemed to be a color theme with this order - I guess lighter colors for summertime knitting (not that I can guarantee starting to knit with these yarns anytime soon.)
I did get some knitting done on the car trip, though. I worked on squares for the Greensburg afghan project and got one finished and another started. I tried an experiment and found that if I wear my stretchy wrist things that I got for seasickness on a cruise, I don't get queasy while knitting in the car! Hallelujah!
