What have you been up to?

Baseball, baseball and more baseball. That's where we were yesterday. Started off yesterday morning when son #1 had his first game of the season in his first kid pitch game. And this proud mama is happy to boast that he had an RBI and scored a run! I'm smiling just thinking about it. Then right after lunch we were off to son #2's game. He is in coach pitch ball, where all the kids still get to bat in each rotation, and he got up there and as we tell him to do "hit the dog snot off of the ball."
Then, Saturday night, DH and I went to the Rockies game. Perfect weather for a ballgame, not too hot, in fact I needed my fleece because of the breeze. That's me working on a Rockie purple cashmere stole at the game, which of course the Rockies won. Can we finally see a change for their season? Let's hope so!
I'm working on projects that I want to finish this summer, especially those I want to bring to knitting camp. I have one really calling my name right now, a sweater in the stash that I am going to pull out and look at today. I really think it is in the infancy stage, and I have other things that I really want to get done before winging my way off to Wisconsin with Leanne, Robin and Pam for so much FUN!!!!
What else? This gluten free lifestyle is not fun for me right now. Finding foods is hard enough, and I'm not a big drinker, but I am finding that having a glass of wine and a half without being able to eat a bread product with my nice meals when we open a bottle of wine makes me feel so sick the next day like I had drunk perhaps a whole bottle of wine. So I need to find something that I can eat with my meats or fish that will absorb the alcohol, because the potato dishes I have tried don't work, nor the meat, neither do nuts, and corn. Who would have thought?
Well, I want to knit, and I have chores that did not get done yesterday while we were running around with baseball.
Enjoy your day!

Oh my, you may have to give up drinking! I know just slap me! or you could try some gluten free beer. I have found two different kinds. Alas, gluten free, taste free, it's all the same! There are also some Vodka's made with potatoes. Wait until you feel better then add some in once in a while is really my best advice, well except that Bailey's still goes down well! I say we get lots of that in Winconsin for our flasks.
