I’ve been really busy. My best friend Beth from high school arrived in Denver on Friday with her family. Her DH is a nurse anesthetist, so they are in town for his conference. So we have been running around. Saturday they came over to the house for a cookout, so there was a mad session of trying to clean the mess that is my house.

Sunday we went to the mountains and drove to the top of Mt. Evans. We saw mountain goats. I have a picture somewhere if I can find the digital camera (which I have not seen since Sunday). Might be in the coat pocket (it was in the 40’s up on the top of the mountain).
Found my camera.

Then we went over to Georgetown to have lunch and walk around. Monday it was back to work, then last night we all went to the Rockies game. It wasn’t looking too good there for a while, and then the Rockies came alive and won 11-4. Great game. But now I’m just dragging. We didn’t get home until after 11PM, which means the boys are short sleep along with mom and dad. DH put it this way when I was getting dressed for work, you look nice, but your face looks really tired. Yep, that sums it up.

Knitting. Let’s see. I cast on a very cute Rowan on Sunday on the way to the mountains as a gift for someone. No more about this until it is finished and presented, but boy it’s looking very cute. I cast on some socks from Favorite Socks, but right now they are not my favorite and will be going to the frog pond. I am working on Hanging Gardens. I really want this done in the next 2 weeks, but for some reason cannot knit at my usual rate of speed on it. Though it is #1 in priority because I must have FO’s this month.

My oldest starts football tonight. I registered him in flag football, because I want him to learn fundamentals before he ever gets in pads. I think 2nd grade is too young for pads, even though there are pee wee leagues.

Barry Bonds’ 756th, who cares! Put an asterisk by that record baby because we all know you have been on ‘roids for years!

Beautiful day in God’s country. Those blue skies are back.

sounds like you had a great time with your friend. I love going up to the top of Mount Evans. It is a really good way to cool off. Have you been to the Buckskin in Georgetown. It is one of my favorite clothing shops ever!
