A true friend

I have this friend that I usually see at least twice a month and talk to on the phone at least once a week. Well with my hectice schedule over the past 4-6 weeks we have not gotten together much. So this past Friday I went to see her. Now here is how good a friend she is......................I told her everything that had been happening in our lives since the last time I had seen her. I must have talked for up to 30 minutes non stop. Then when I was done she smiles at me and says "That's really great. But I just want you to know that everything you just told me had have read on your blog". And then busts out laughing.

Seems she reads my blog quite often. That makes me feel good to know that at least one person does. Don't get many comments on the blog so I never know.

So to my dear friend, Bev, I would like to send a big HELLO!

Goodness

My oh my, where has the time gone. It has been almost a month since I last posted here! So let me catch you all up to date on the goings on in my life. (not that you may care)lol

I have not been doing a lot of crafting in the past month but I have gotten a few things done while other projects are still in the "work in progress" mode. I made 4 pair of flip flops for people in my family. Those are so easy to crochet up! I was going to take pictures of them but they walked out of the house before I got a chance. I am still working on the coverings for my Mom's chairs and also the magic loop sock. I have several prayer shawls in progress as well. Some day I will just sit and do nothing but CRAFT!

My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, my brother's was a week later, and my DH had his this weekend not to mention Father's day as well. Our Godson turned three today as well as one of my closests friends. So we have been in the birthday mode.

My DH and I went to Charleston SC last week as I had a seminar there and a certification test for my job. We were with my boss and her DH as well. The seminar was really informative and I gained a lot of knowledge from it. The city of Charleston is probably one of the friendliest cities I have even been in. I wish we could have stayed a few more days as the history there is fantastic also. Not to mention the scenery was breathtaking. We were able to get a bit of sightseeing done between seminar sessions and we are still in awe of what we saw and learned. If you have never been there, you may want to consider this as a vacation spot sometime. I would suggest you do it some other time than the summer. The humidity was a little overwhelming and we were there during a "cool" snap. I will try and get a couple of pictures posted on here as soon as we get everything downloaded off the camera.

Today was spent with family as we celebrated Father's Day. The request from the Daddys this year was for my "famous" chili verde. (green chili) This was fine with me as it is so easy to make! So we made sure all the Daddys were comfortable infront of the TV watching the US open and all of us ladies took off to the back yard to do a little frolicing in the pool. A good time was had by all. I just got back from taking our DD to the airport (she flew in just for her Dad's b-day and Father's day). I am tired from the day but I know it was a day that will bring wonderful memories to us each year.

Goodness! Look how long I have been rambling on. I think I had better close this and get my tired body off the computer and into my comfy bed.

Happy Father's day to all you Dad's out there and all you Mom's that also fill the role of Dad!
