As you know Deb and Chappy came and visited Liz and I this weekend. We had a fabulous time! A really good weekend. I didn't take that many pictures, we kind of took turns, but I did get one that is my favorite...this was at the height of some silliness on Saturday evening. I think this picture requires a little caption contest. So, you have until Friday at 10:00 p.m. to leave your caption in the comments. There will be a special prize for the winner...Yes it will be fiber related. I will announce the winner on Monday. OK...here's the scene; Give it your best shot.
Is that picture hilarious or what? I love it! Hope you guys can come up with a rocking caption to match it.
Well as you have probably already read on Liz's and Deb's sites, we all had a very active and fun time. Liz prepared some fabulous dinner's that perfectly set the evenings with good wine and conversation. Oh, and of course, we had a pack of dogs going wild around us...well some. Chappy maintained a very quiet and demure stature.
So unlike our dogs that are used to our get togethers being all about them. Poor Chappy seemed quite confused as to all the excitement and interaction. When things got too wound up, he had his mommy for comfort.
Banjo absolutely had a blast with Max; They went non-stop for two days. Max, thank you for wearing out my puppy...It's such a break from my norm lately and I'll take every minute that I can! Marley got in on some of the fun, but was quite jealous that she couldn't have Max all to herself.
Uncle Kirk enjoyed having a "little one" around too. Hmmmm...I even got him to say that Liz could get another dog after he kept hugging on Banjo.
The dogs definitely took over the house and made it their own vacation while we played with all types of fiber.
Deb and Chappy brought some GREAT prezzies for us. I'll have to take a picture when there is more light and post it tomorrow. Thanks though for bringing us such thoughtful and great presents! I can't wait to start using them! I am so happy that you could make it down...And of course, I look forward to visiting with you and going to Rhinebeck!
My weekend ended perfect. Jeff, Allen and I went for a super-long Kayak trip on Sunday.
The river's waves and breeze made for some beautiful relaxing trip and a great workout on our paddle back against the tide. Of course, some swimming and good times were had and a great grilled evening meal topped it all off.
Don't forget to join in on the caption contest! And I'll be sure to post my pictures of all the swatches and progress for the "Chuck's Cabled Socks." They are looking fabulous!
