Summer Vacation

I have had some time away from the office. It is great to have some extra time to relax, knit, read and work on the chore list, too.
Current reading: Stieg Larsson trilogy, book one, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", book two "The Girl who Played with Fire" and book three "The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest." I am over half way in the second book. It is hard to put it down.

New Socks

Finished a pair of socks, today.
I have some time off work. I have been relaxing, resting and working on a few projects a home.
Certainly, enjoying the time away from the work place.

July 4, 2010

It is a cool, gray 4th of July, here. I did ride in the fire engine in the parade and throw some candy. I didn't take any pictures.
We did watch part of a baseball game on TV.
Later, we will BBQ some hamburger.
Meggen has spent a lot of time, hiding (from the noise of fireworks) in the closet.
