I'm a bit late writing up my Friday Fave Fives. AND I missed last Friday. The good news is--I'm not dead. I've just been busier than I like to be. How did retirement get so busy??
1. Last Friday, we kidnapped The Professor's sister again and dragged her off to the county fair. We also invited friends who enjoy good music, so we sat through more Brady Goss performances. In between, we wandered through the various exhibits. Obviously, I love the home arts building. And the photography building. We drove home and sleep well that night. I love me a good fair. (Should the deep sleep of exhaustion count as a separate fave?)
Of course, the main entrance building has to have that California mission look, complete with bell and tower and red tile roof.
Everyone loves a ferris wheel!
3. We've had more hot weather. As I am typing this, the AC just kicked in. Again. God bless the man who invented the air conditioner!
4. I'm working my way through my unfinished knitting projects. Finally, I did the i-cord edgings on this vest. For those who care, it's knitted with Heartland acrylic yarn on size 9 needles. The pattern, Many Buttoned Vest, was too large for me, so I had to make some adjustments to the number of stitches. But it all worked out ok. Of course, it's too hot to wear a vest right now, but I'll feel very snuggly in it once the weather cools down. You may notice that there are NO buttons on it. That's because the buttons are ornamental. You find a button you like, you sew it on wherever you want. I'll be searching for my favorite buttons!
5. I love coffee dates with friends. The past two weeks, I've enjoyed iced coffees with one long time college buddy and another friend who I am just now getting to know.
Oh! A bonus! Happy Independence Day to the Republic of Indonesia! Selamat Merdeka!
So, that's Willow's Week (or two) succinctly summed up in five bullet points. How are you!
