Par for the Course

Lately I haven't had much time to knit, a phrase that's becoming a bit of a broken record. It's late summer and I'm shocked to discover I'm behind in so many things. Plus Karl and I seem to be popular lately - we've actually been invited to several dinner parties which is kind of out of the ordinary for us homebodies. Thus, knitting has taken a temporary back seat for a while.

On Saturday morning, though, I had a blast knitting with Lori, Cyndi, Violet and Kaedean at Frog Pond Knits, Violet's and Kaedean's new store. We sat in some very comfortable leather chairs nibbling on cookies while we all chatted, told stories and got to know each other. Everyone brought their latest projects. You'd think I would've whipped out the camera and taken pictures but...no. I was too busy having a good time! However, everyone, you are now forewarned. The next knitting circle will be a photo op! Oh, and we did shop a little. I mean, how could we not at such a terrific yarn store? I picked up a skein of Trekking sock yarn, 2 skeins of Louet Gems Pearl in natural so I can play with kool-aid and the Shoalwater Shawl pattern from Fiber Trends. This is what I'll use the Lorna's Laces Lion & Lamb yarn for. Luscious.

On Sunday morning we got up at 6am to make it to a 8am tee time at Bass Lake Golf Course. 18 holes took almost 5 hours even with carts. The weather was perfect. This was only my second golf outing of the year, the first being a charity tournament in March. I am happy to report that I beat both the guys, Karl and Tim, with the stupendous score of 105 (hahahahahaha) that included 2 pars and a birdie. The birdie came on a par 3 in which I hit from the guys' tees so no one could say it wasn't fair. I'm not exactly Annika Sorenstam or Michelle Wie however, so I'm happy with my score.

Now the work week (that's WW34, btw) has started but I live for Saturdays and Sundays. I'm already planning the activities...hope you all have a good week, don't let the summer go by without doing something outside every day.

Until the next day in the life....

You know it was a good time it you forgot to take pictures! I too live for the weekends. Too much to do and not enough hours to do it. Work sure does get in the way!

You can hit from the guys' tee and get a birdie! That's damn good.

Saturday was fun, and the time just flew by. We're going to have to make that a regular event.
