Posting will be even more sporadic than usual with all the kids off school.  I wanted to say thanks for all the support and understanding regarding the performing arts camp.  Gracie rebounded quite well and is enjoying herself in VA at the moment.  Friday was Owen’s last day of school and his current home teacher said she would be dropping from 4 to 2 hours a week but she has agreed to come on Tuesdays–the day Owen has his after school program!  That was going to be a difficult day to fill but hours we didn’t want to lose.  We will make it a weekly community outing–dinner out or otherwise. 

It was great to be at work on Saturday.  I miss Granny.  Ann came to visit as she needed a specific needle size–Addi snob that she has become.  And she had a little present for Granny–egg cups.  That Ann–she’s a doll.  I am delayed in posting this picture of Ann from the shop aAnn_is_wrong  couple of weeks ago.  We had met up at Granny’s on Guild Friday to have lunch.  Peggy joined us and was going to swing by the meeting for information on how to cut fabric to knit.  Ann insisted she knew exactly how they would do it.  Peggy was thought otherwise.  Here is Ann acting all surprised when she was WRONG!

Cameron and I went to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang yesterday in the city.  It was such a fantastic day with him.  He is such good company.  And lunch, by Cameron’s request, was at Mars 2112.  Kevin and Owen had a fun morning at Splish Splash.  While on the train and a bit in the theater, I worked on a multidirectional scarf in Kureyon.  I am worried my gauge is a bit tight and it will have to be reworked on a larger needle. 

Thanks_better_pal_003 Last, from my Better Pal–some lovely Artyarns Supermerino, a Valrhona dark chocolate bar, some tea, and a cute little card with a cupcake recipe–the kids and I might give it a whirl.  It doesn’t look too complicated.  Thanks pal.  I have been anxious to try the Artyarns.  Footlets, mabye?

    What a nice treat from your pal!
    Things seem to be falling into place. Is it summer that make everyone feel crazy and too hectic? Fall may just help us get into a routine that can be enjoyed.
    Sounds like you had a lovely weekend. You have very cool kids;-)

    Ooh, lucky you to receive that nice package from your Better Pal! The Artyarns looks yummy, as does, of course, the chocolate!

    It must be the weather shift in making us all feel better and have a good weekend.

    So sorry to hear about Gracie’s camp fiasco. Life’s hard enough with adding assholes to the mix. I think you all handled it with aplomb.

    What a lovely better pal gift! Artyarns is wonderful – you’ll love it!

    I love Artyarn. I want to try the Ultramerino 4 but after my recent purchases I need to wait a bit. My SP bought me some Artyarn and I really like the feel and the colors.
    Thanks for your kind comment on my site.

    What a lovely package from your Secret Pal! 🙂

    Mmmm, cupcakes! Yummy yarn, too. I think I’d look just like Ann in that situation — and have the same reaction in the comments when I rediscovered it!

    I hope you all find the back-to-school groove quickly (and painlessly!). First day of school here is Thursday for the high schooler, next Tue/Wed for the college kids. Bordering on surreal in my world…

    It is hard to get back in the routine of school. Good luck. I know I have felt completely unorganized all week–I even missed an appointment this week. Argh.

    My mom would love that blue. I don´t (but this is my mom´s fault, everything was blue in our house when I was a kid). 🙂

    Great day for you and Cameron! It’s always nice to get some special time with just one.
    Love the baby knits – they are so sweet.
