Hi, All! Thanks for coming to visit. Four fabulous days on the Oregon Coast with good friends truly did fly by as we worked on our scrapbooks, ate out several times, shopped a bit, and enjoyed our surroundings and visiting with each other.
During our stay, a series of storms continued to roll in from the West over the waves. We had one blinding flash of lightning followed within seconds by a mighty crack of thunder, but our power just flickered and the steady flames in the gas fireplace provided welcome warmth.
We laughed a lot, shared some tears and our faith in God, prayed, listened to upbeat music, and made progress on all of our projects. I finally finished my granddaughter, Rosie's first year album [she is now 28 months old]!
Three deer visited the yard of the house where we were staying, and between storms we saw a rainbow over the ocean, and one colorful sunset.
One of my friends and I also enjoyed knitting: she on dishcloths, and I on the current preemie blanket I am knitting with Lion Brand 100% acrylic Creme Glacee Helado yarn on my size six KnitPicks circular knitting needles.
Now home again, I'm enjoying our one perfect Camellia blossom, and I had fun swimming laps in the pool for an hour this afternoon with Teresa.
I got permission to share a photo with you of my precious new little California friend, Ian, modeling the baseball cap I crocheted for him, too :)
My week is off to a great start! How is your week progressing?
