Mini-vacation!

I had to work Memorial Day Weekend, except for Monday. But because I work night shift, I got paid 7.5 hours of time-and-a-half from 0001 to 0730 on Monday for working Sunday night! Very nice.

Monday was also Brad and Carin's engagement party in Eugene.

I still question Carin's sanity at wanting to marry my brother-in-law, but I'm very happy for them. I was less happy to attend their party, as I got home at 0800, and then woke up at 1130 to ride to Eugene for their party. Fortunately, by the time we arrived, my Pepsi had kicked in and I managed to get through the party without saying too many stupid things.

Then on Wednesday, we piled in the car and went to Crater Lake. Shirley was very happy at getting to climb on a new bed.


We'd planned to meet with friends of ours from San Francisco, but they weren't able to come after all. This was the view from our window at the Lodge:


In spite of the 70-plus degree weather, there was still five feet of snow in places. So we bundled up the Mimi and let her experience lots of snow for the first time in her life. All went well until she ate some.


Apparently snow that's been on the ground for Lord knows how many months doesn't taste very good!


While we were on the trip, I also started on yet another version of the Sonnet cardigan done with my bulky weight handspun yarn. I've got the body completely done and I'm working on the sleeves now.

I was just browsing through some local blogs and came across yours....wow, you have done a lot of knitting! I am so impressed with people who can crochet and knit! I can make a scarf with a hoop to help me. (I don't even know for sure if that is what it is called!) :) Anyway, you are impressively crafty!

Looks like it was fun! I will have to nag, uh... ENCOURAGE my other half to go see the mountains, we've not been there for a few years.

And little one. NO YELLOW SNOW. Making it, not so great, eating, NO. Trust me on this...

Shirley is getting so big. We will have to have you up in our area one of these days to meet Kendyl! Lots of love!

That can't be Shirley, it must be an older stand-in! No, it must be her, she's awfully cute...

Shurely Shirley isn't that big? it seems like only five minutes since she was born.

I remember when my little 'un saw snow for the first time. She was not impressed.
