KIDS & DEER ~ ~ ~
Tuesday night, I went to grandson, Jakob's first Junior High football game. For me, a big thing, as I don't like or understand the game and it makes me sick when I see someone get hurt and know the possibilities of what could go wrong. But ~ I persevered ~ my grandma instincts got the better of me ~ I did what I knew was the right thing to do ~ the weather was perfect at 4 in the afternoon ~ and I went! Jake had a great game ~ he scored a touchdown, had a couple of tackles and caught a nice pass ~ and they won! I was very proud of him ~ and I would have felt terrible if Sonny had come home and told me what I'd missed! I'm guessing I will go to more ~ if the weather's good ~ or maybe even if it's not!
I'm still dying wool ~ in the midst of everything else. We had our 84 year old friend, Marge, over yesterday. She wanted to see my rugs and find out what this hooking is all about! She was really interested in the process and the dying ~ it was great ~ she wanted to hear about something totally new to her!! We had a good visit and fed her pizza and stromboli for supper! It's a good thing to spend time with an older person ~ we chatted away and it was good for us both!
The sun is shining ~ it's a good day!
