It is a beautiful day today.  The sun is shining (through the hazy smoke), there is a gentle breeze and our daughter is coming to visit us tonight for dinner.  Last night we had the privilege of having our teen grand daughter spend the night.  Her parents are on a mini vacation and she has school so we have her for a couple of days.  She will be going on a little get away this weekend with her BFF.  

Thank you for all your comments on my last post.  I finally picked up hubby's socks again and have been working on them for a couple of days.  I will have photos on Sunday of my progress.  The Havana is still in time out.  Good thing I don't need it for another 2 years LOL.  

The one WIP I do need to pull out of the closet is my cardigan I started last year.  It will be sweater weather here in a couple of months. I really would like to have it completed so I can wear it.  Must put that on my to do list so I don't forget.

Speaking of forgetting.....................I took the teen to school this morning.  While I was on my way, her dad sent me a text asking if I had filled out her COVID form online.  DANG!  I completely forgot about that.  If not filled out each day she goes, she will be sent home.  Lucky for me, her dad filled it out while I was transporting her.  PHEW!  Hey, I made her a nice breakfast and even packed her a yummy lunch along with snacks.  Also, last night, I helped her get ready for her evening out with her BFF.  It was her BFF's 16th bday.  They went to a very nice Japanese restaurant to celebrate.  Here is how she looked.

She did her own make-up and I did her hair.  The hair was not what either of us wanted but her hair was not cooperating with us so we did what we could.  The dress is one her mother wore for a dance in her freshman year of high school!  

Since I had to get her to school by 7:45, I was up quite early.  I spent some lovely time outside in the cool morning air. (Cool for us)  I was gifted with seeing the sunrise.

As you can see, we are still being affected by the wildfires on the west coast.  It sure does make for a pretty sunrise though.  The sunsets are just as pretty too.  

Almost time for us to leave and go pick up the teen and get her to her swim practice.  Then we pick her up from there and take her to her BFF's house.  From there she will be heading to the mountains with that family plus a few friends.  Hubby and I are staying home and enjoying a quiet weekend.

Until next time......................happy crafting & stay well!



  1. She looks so pretty! She's grown up so fast! You are really a busy lady. The sunrise is pretty with the smoke but not so good for breathing. Enjoy your quiet time! LOL!
