Except it was the third weekend of February, and the end of Winter Break worked its way into my consciousness. There was something I should be doing...bake a cake or two, shop for birthday dinners and gifts perhaps...I was foggy. Staying up late every night to watch the Olympics certainly wasn't helping matters. Moving through dust and a schedule completely determined by others, I somehow got the place vacuumed and mopped, several times over. A cake baked, and dinner made for Friday night, for an early birthday dinner. Tall Son had been retrieved from college because he wanted to be home for his sister's and dad's birthdays which are on the 21st and 22nd of February.
Thank goodness -- the goofing off with Crafty Girl jolted me out of my drywall dust induced stupor.
Yeah. As soon as the camera came out, they went hiding. He does NOT want his picture taken. Do I care? Nope!
By Sunday afternoon, he was gone again already, on the train back to Rochester. Dear friends came over to celebrate Annemarie's 13th birthday with us. Crafty Girl, I am sorry the dining room wasn't quite back together yet...
Thank you for that gorgeous smile. :)
Last night, I finally finally finished her socks. She had requested these a while back -- last fall? I had one skein each of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, colorway "Rainbow", and a Sisik fingering weight yarn in orange. She wanted the colors reversed on the pair, and loves them! These are just like my girl: bright, cheerful, fun, and daring. Here's to my teenager!
