the rest of it
Wednesday afternoon, after the kids and I finished a bike ride, we visited with an old friend, Michael; his wife; and their sweet new baby boy.
Skull hat. I didn't even know she started this project until she brought it out of her room for blocking.
Saturday included an evening of contra dancing and it was a BLAST. The dance I went to was smaller than the one in this video and I wasn't nearly as adept at it as these folks, but the music was fun, the people were friendly, and before I knew it, two hours had passed by. There may be more of this in my future because, well, live music, fun people, laughs, and exercise all rolled up into one big party? Sign me up!
Yesterday, I got to visit with Lauren, who has been a friend since my very first day of school in this town, when I was 12. She was visiting from Toronto with her wife, Meg, and their two awesome little people, so we all met over at Lauren's parents' place. There's something really fabulous about hanging out with people you've known for that long, where you know the extended family and have such a solid history together.
In between it all, there has been knitting. My Minimalist cardigan looks much the same as it did a couple of days ago, only now the body is about 12" tall. Lovin' it.
Today, it was back to work and celebration of Jesse's 16th birthday, but I took a mid-day break for a walk on a rail trail, where the water is starting to freeze and the beavers have been very busy.
