It's Been Awhile!

I can't believe how quickly these 3 weeks have passed! I've been very busy with some personal and health issues and they have been taking all of my time and attention, so my blog had to sit here and patiently wait for an entry. :)

My DH and I went to my son and daughter-in-law's new home on the weekend and it was a great visit. Their home is just beautiful and the weather cooperated so we could enjoy their rooftop deck with a spectacular 360 degree view.

When we arrived they had chamagne and a tray of brie, swiss, and strawberries with water wafers all ready and we dove right in. On top of all this luxury, they presented me with my birthday gift which absolutely thrilled me to no end.......the digital camera I've been wanting, the Canon SD 1000 digital elph! This baby is a dream and the viewing screen for picture taking is nice and large, plus vibrantly clear for these 'foggy' eyes (ah, the perks of getting older). I took all the pictures on this post with my new baby and I couldn't be happier. Don't I have the best kids in the world and the best daughters-in-law (I have 4 of them, LOL).

We had the most wonderful weekend with 2 of our other sons and their wives there as well and on Sunday we went to an unbelievable brunch which was enough to set another good 3 pounds on this already overloaded body! Here's a peek at one tiny part of the dessert table which was 3 times this big and had more temptations that this girl could possibly resist.

Sorry I don't have any knitterly pictures to share with you since I've only been crocheting for the most part and slipping in my knitted shawl once in a while. I haven't even worked on my socks pictured below for a long time so I've got to make sure I start doing an even amount of knitting and crocheting so I can show you some progress.
